I always figured pocket diapers were easier because the covers were built in, but I’m telling you these diapers put the thirsty into Thirsties. They are super absorbent and the softest diaper in our stash. I daringly chose orange to add some color variation to our stash and it is so appropriate for this time of the year. I paired it with my green duo wrap and voila! the perfect pairing with my DD’s pumpkin costume for Halloween. AND it will get us through trick or treating without any leaks.
The other advantage of a fitted diaper is that it gives added leak and mess protection because the fitted diaper has it’s only elastic in the back and thighs. The cover serves as a second barrier to this and their new duo wrap works great. Although I typically put two inserts in my pocket diapers, we went for the same 2+ hours in this diaper. So there are many advantages to a fitted diaper! Higher absorbency with a trimmer fit and these are so cute you’ll be tempted to let your little one go coverless.
