A few weeks ago I introduced to you all the brand new one-size pockets at Diaper Safari, in 15 bright colors. This is a great addition to the line-up at Diaper Safari, where you’ll find the popular cloth diaper brands you love and free shipping on all orders to the continental U.S.
Thanks to Diaper Safari, we’ve been able to try out one of these great new diapers on Susanna and Samuel! We chose the gender-neutral green diaper called “peapod.” It included one standard-size microfiber insert made of 3 layers. Here are some photos to give you an idea of how it looks snapped up and down to different sizes, and how it fits on baby Susanna, who is about 14 months old:
Here’s how it fits on two-year-old Samuel:
And one more of Susanna:
If you already own some imported pocket diapers, the Diaper Safari design will be familiar to you. It seems to me that Diaper Safari has combined a lot of great pocket diaper features into one package.
What I love about the Diaper Safari pocket:
- The fit is more generous than comparable pocket diapers in this price range. Samuel wears the largest setting with all the other pockets in our stash; not this one. The Diaper Safari pocket has one more row of snaps for him to use, so it really can fit 35+ pounds, as advertised. The flip side is that it might be too big or bulky for a 7 or 8 pound baby, but I won’t be able to comment on that aspect until I try it out on our new baby in January.
- The price is very affordable at $13.95, and Diaper Safari has consistently been running promotions on their new product, including Facebook sales with deep discounts and even a Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale.
- There is a pocket opening on the front and back, which means the wet/soiled inserts come out in the washing machine all by themselves.
- The strip of waterproof PUL on the inside of the waistband provides extra protection against wicking/leaks – especially for tummy sleepers.
- The standard microfiber insert that’s included is thick and very absorbent. We haven’t had any problems with leaks – and Samuel is a heavy wetter.
- There are extra snaps on the waist to prevent wing droop and to adjust the leg openings.
What I would improve about the diaper:
- My only suggestion would be great to have a newborn or small insert for little babies that you could buy for these diapers, as I can imagine the diaper being quite bulky when snapped to the smallest setting with the large insert bunched up inside.
And now……here are all the fun colors you get to choose from! My favorites are the green, the dark blue and the gray/steel color!!
