Pocket Cloth Diapers – My Passion

I love pocket cloth diapers.  It seems that I’m not alone: Prince George seems to be a pocket cloth diapers town.  Most of the local moms that use cloth diapers are particularly fond of them.

Why do I love pocket cloth diapers?  (And what do I think makes them so popular?)

Pocket Cloth Diapers are Easy

My husband has ginormous hands.  He has never stuffed any of my pocket cloth diapers and refuses to do so.  For him, pocket cloth diapers are no more difficult than disposables.  Some pocket diapers are easier than others for him, though: he has stated point blank that he prefers FuzziBunz diapers.  He knows how those go on.  The snap placement is 100% consistent.

Pocket Diapers are Versatile

Are you going to be going out for a while?  No problem.  Add a booster and call it done.  If you’re tired of microfiber for whatever reason, just buy new inserts in whatever fiber you prefer.  You can bulk it up for an overnight cloth diapering solution.  Really, you can stuff whatever you want into the pockets to get the level of absorbency that you need.  (Within reason, of course.  Some pockets have more generous space to stuff things than others.)  That versatility also includes the dizzying array of prints and colors available.  There’s also a wide variety of inner fabric, too.

Pocket Cloth Diapers Exist in a Variety of Price Points

My first pocket cloth diapers were FuzziBunz one size diapers.  They were $25 each, which was pretty on-par for those diapers back then.  You can get premium brand pocket diapers for up to $28 each or China Cheapies for $3 each if you use a co-op.  You can also find pocket diapers in all price points and quality levels in between.

Are you a fan of pocket diapers?  What’s your favorite?

    Agree with all your points and their they majority of my stash too!

  2. I like pockets, but if I could start again, I think I’d go with AIOs. They are more comparably priced to pockets now. I do agree that pockets tend to be budget friendly and versatile.

    I do like pockets, they make up a big part of my stash but I think my favorite diapers are AIOs. I like the AIOs like tots bots that can also have an extra insert stuffed in them.

  4. Shannon Stubbs says:

    Pockets were what we started out with too, although we use a lot of fitted’s now.

  5. I personally prefer AI2s and covers with inserts. I am not a big fan of pocket diapers. The few pockets that I still have I now use as covers.

  6. My baby is due in October and I registered for a few pocket diapers! Thanks for your description; they really do sound so convenient for mixing and matching, and it seems like they would work well for overnight since you can stuff them with so many things!

    I love my pocket diapers, I’ve tried prefolds, didn’t really like them to well, I also have a AIO i do like that one..but prefer my pockets 🙂

    I am looking forward to using my new pocket diapers!

  9. I also like that with pocket diapers it is easy to make your own inserts. I can’t make a fitted diaper, but inserts are easy.
