The up side of these new pocket diapers is that you don’t need to worry about a separate cover, and the fleece leg area is soft against baby’s thighs, while allowing some breathability to reduce the chance of a rash. The current compromise is that is has a slightly smaller size range than their fitted diaper, since PUL lacks the elasticity the hemp blend of their fitted diapers use, but it will still fit more children from 7-30 lbs. I even found a way to make it work past 30 lbs. for a heavier,low-rise child like my own by only snapping the top waist snaps into the hip snap sockets. It looks a little unique, but worked for us just fine when I wanted to double stuff the diaper for my toddler and needed a little extra thigh room.
We love having a pocket style option for Babykicks and that it still is made with the same quality as their other products. They are also compatible with their Joey-Bunz inserts and have 3 different options for the color of the snaps to add a little fun and variety to your stash. I personally like the multi-colored snaps, because, like the fitted diapers, it helps you visually see (or tell another caregiver) which snap setting works best for your child’s weight and body type. Overall, I love how soft the leg casings are on my daughter’s thighs, as the traditional PUL casings can leave red marks and the inner layer of the diaper is very soft as well. I am looking forward to seeing if they come out with a larger size range or waist extenders to get the same size range as their stretchier fitted diapers!
Closure Style: Snaps, two on each side, vertical.
