The Rumparooz diaper cover was just featured on my blog two weeks ago. Now it’s time for another review. One of the most popular products that Rumparooz makes is a one-size pocket diaper. I won the “Perky Perennials” diaper in a Padded Tush Stats giveaway, and this gave me the opportunity to share our experiences on the blog. At the end of this post, find out how you can win a RaR pocket diaper in today’s Fall Fun giveaway hop!
Here are the basic features of the Rumparooz one-size pocket diaper:
- Outer shell is made of waterproof thermally-bonded PUL.
- Inside lining is white microchamois
- The back of the waistband is elasticized.
- The rise features 3 rows of snaps, which translates to 4 size settings (three snapped up and one completely open).
- The wings close with double snaps.
- Includes the exclusive Rumparooz 6r Soaker
- Inner gusset/channel sewn into the fleece lining
- Currently available in about 40 different colors and prints, in snap or hook & loop closure
- Retail price starts at $23.95
- Warranty: 6 months
Kanga Care/Rumparooz is located in Littleton, Colorado; products are made in different locations including the USA, Denmark and China.
This picture illustrates the 4 different size settings, which I would call newborn, small, medium and large. In the first picture below, I’ve placed it next to an actual newborn diaper for perspective.
The white microchamois lining is not only MUCH softer than your average microfleece or microsuede, it’s also hypoallergenic. The pocket opening is wide enough for easy stuffing. The patented inner gusset creates an elasticized channel for better containment of messes.
Each Rumparooz pocket comes with a unique microfiber 6r soaker. It’s a set that can be used together or separately.
In fact, there are 6 different settings, based on your baby’s size and absorbency needs. This chart from Rumparooz illustrates all the options. There are even recommended settings for boys and girls, since their “wet zones” vary.
Here’s another little thing that makes Rumparooz unique: the little kangaroo snaps.
Sizing: The Rumparooz pocket runs a bit smaller than the Rumparooz one-size cover. Compared to the Rumparooz cover, the Rumparooz pocket has a shorter rise, so keep that in mind if you’ve tried one product but not the other. Erik (my 2 year old toddler) can wear the cover just fine, but the pocket sits much lower on him (below).
Fit: I like the overall trim fit of this pocket diaper, the double snap closure and the soft microchamois inside and around the leg openings. And I like that it does not have the front elastic (so it stays more flat). Double snaps at the waist mean you can adjust around the legs and tummy separately. The thermally-bonded PUL is very soft and pliable and the wings have lots of stretch. The crotch area is a little wide compared to some of our other pockets, but the upside is it’s easier to stuff.
Here’s the Rumparooz pocket on 13-month-old Ingrid. She is short with chubby little legs.
Absorbency: The included soakers are made of 80% polyester/20% polymide. There are 3 layers in the newborn soaker and 3 layers in the adjustable soaker, giving you 6 altogether. So it’s about double what you typically get in a pocket diaper. This is a pocket diaper I was pleasantly surprised to find that Ingrid can wear all night long, and it has that comfortale stay-dry effect.
Ingrid is well past the days of runny poos and blow outs (she is almost 90 percent weaned from breastfeeding), but we do get a big mess every so often. Toddlers are adventurous eaters! The inner gussets in this diaper do help contain things better, especially when you have an active baby. However, if you don’t have a diaper sprayer, it will take some very vigorous dunking and swishing to rinse the gussets out. Flushable liners would be a good option in that instance.
If microfiber is not your thing, inserts are also available in hemp or bamboo. All Rumparooz inserts can be purchased separately.
Quality: This is a sturdy, well made and beautiful diaper with strong, evenly placed snaps. Rumparooz colors and prints are vibrant and appealing. I’m happy with the consistent quality of all the Rumparooz products we’ve tested so far.
