Do you ever shop for cloth diapers from Canada? I do!! It’s worth it to get a special brand of diapers that I feel would be an asset to my stash. One of those amazing brands is Hipkiddo! You might remember that we tried the Hipkiddo WeeBaby AIO diapers on newborn Erik and loved them. This month I’ll tell you about their super cute “Intelligently Hip” one-size pocket diapers.
Here’s the Limited Edition “Ooga Booga” print that Joshua at Hipkiddo sent to us at Zephyr Hill. It’s such a fun, whimsical print and the children love the fuzzy critters with big eyes and tiny legs.
The “Intelligently Hip” pockets were recently updated by Hipkiddo to be even more durable and more trim than ever! The wings were also redesigned to feature a double row of snaps for greater adjustability. The crossover snaps on the waist enable you to use Hipkiddo pockets for newborns, too. They retail for $14.00 and are sized to fit from about 8 to 35 pounds. Each one comes with a standard size microfiber insert which gives the diaper an average level of absorbency, comparable to most other pocket diapers. You can purchase additional inserts to stuff in for long naps and overnight.
I especially like the thick and high-quality polar fleece that lines the inside of our diaper. It’s very soft and resists staining. And the pocket opening is very easy to stuff because it’s so wide. Performance-wise, the Hipkiddo has been great. No leaks even during nap time, and no red marks on their legs or waists. Because the pocket is roomy, I can easily add extra inserts (bamboo is my favorite) to boost the absorbency.
While shopping at Hipkiddo I also picked up a couple of their fleece liners because we don’t have a diaper sprayer and I’m burned out on spending money each month for flushable/biodegradable liners. The fleece is very thin and soft, and a bit wider and shorter than the microfiber inserts (see the photo above at right). The size is just right for catching messes. Dunking a liner in the toilet is so much easier than trying to get poo off the entire diaper. And even though the Hipkiddo liners are very thin, they held their shape perfectly after washing and drying. At just $6.00 for a pack of 3, I’m so glad we made this investment.
Here’s how the Intelligently Hip pocket looks on 18-month-old Susanna. She’s about 25 pounds and I snapped the rise down just once. Super cute with zero bulk!
Next up? Samuel is a pretty hefty toddler. I haven’t weighed him in a while, but he’s pushing 3 years old and is close to 35 pounds. I didn’t use any of the rise snaps for him. The fit is just as good!
And “newborn” Erik is now just over 10 pounds. Our Intelligently Hip pocket was a bit bulky on him, especially in the back and at the bottom, but it still worked ok. He’s putting on weight but still has skinny legs so I think that has something to do with the sagging. I’m glad we have our Hipkiddo Weebaby AIO diapers because the fit on those is fantastic on a newborn. Since our Hipkiddo pocket works so well on my toddler, Samuel, I’m thinking it must run a little big. This has drawbacks at the beginning of baby’s life…….but benefits later on. Some pocket diapers in my stash are too small for Samuel.
Hipkiddo also sent us a Mellow Mocha zippered wet bag. The photo shows 3 of the WeeBaby AIO diapers for some size perspective. The 100% waterproof PUL is soft and butter-smooth, and I love the chic brown color! At 17×14, the bags will hold about six one-size diapers, and even more of the tiny ones. The hanging loop is perfect for door knobs, hooks and stroller handles. The price? Only $7.00 each (right now you can get a FREE Hipkiddo wet bag when you buy 5 diapers…..offer ends Feb. 20th and the coupon code is “valentinespromo”). The newborn WeeBaby’s are just $12.00. And do you remember how adorable they were on Erik?
Hipkiddo diapers are available in 7 stylish colors, plus two prints: MooMoo and Ooga Booga. Which one is your favorite?
Hipkiddo has been selling their cute, modern cloth diapers since 2010 and are a family-owned enterprise. Even better, they share some of their sale proceeds with Seeds of Hope orphanages. You can read more about their beautiful family and how they are giving back by following this link.
