Sick of trying to stretch the baby prefolds fit Jack, we finally sold them off and I bought some more pocket diapers to compensate. We could have gotten by if we were more inclined to use the next size up of prefolds (I think we have toddler size??) but they are HUGE and we hate them.
I am still in love with Fuzzi Bunz, but I didn’t feel like spending $18 on a sized diaper and I have been wondering if there’s something out there I’m missing… I still like the BumGenius diapers quite a bit, but they are actually getting a little snug on Jack, so I didn’t want to invest in more in case he really does grow out of them. I am comfortable enough with cloth diapering, and I trust Nicki’s Diapers (home of free shipping and inserts for all pocket diapers) enough, that I didn’t read reviews on these diapers before purchasing - just took the plunge and hoped for the best!
- 2 Haute Pockets One-Size Diapers (on sale for $14) – one snap, one velcro
- 1 Happy Heinies One-Size Diaper ($19)
- 1 Large DryBees ($16)
- 1 Imse Vimse potty training diaper (yet to be used, bought due to wishful thinking)
I like the color options on the Haute Pockets, and the fit is great. I don’t like is that the open portion for the insert doesn’t lay flat or overlap to completely cover the insert. It doesn’t seem to bug Jack and the diapers haven’t leaked (although this might be an issue for babies spending most of their time laying down). I tend to use our BG at night because Jack would unlatch the velcro when awake, but the Haute Pockets have much stronger velcro to prevent toddler’s from stripping. I am not sure if they would work for overnight as the ones I bought have “breathable” PUL, and frankly I’m a little afraid to try…
The Happy Heinies diaper is great! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it since Jack is so keen on undoing velcro, but this is strong stuff. I love the trim fit and the cow print we got is so adorable! I would definitely recommend these, and will stock up more with a second baby.
DryBees – my new favorite diaper of the sized variety. These suckers can hold a TON of pee, there is a huge variety of cute colors and patterns, and the velcro is super strong. Bonus: the fleece is the softest and thickest I’ve ever felt, and the diaper is constructed so that only fleece touch’s the baby’s skin. I LOVE this diaper.
I am still awaiting an order of Sunbums (including one with sock monkeys on it!) from a sale I took advantage of, so that review is pending.
