So I have ventured into the world of cloth diapering a newborn, and I have discovered that it is not as scary as one might think! In fact, Emery seems to do better in cloth than disposables. Her little bum seems to be pretty sensitive, turning red very quickly (though no real rashes yet).
One diaper that I have had the chance to try, courtesy of One Posh Baby, is the Thirsties Duo Pocket Diaper. I have several thoughts and opinions on this diaper.
First of all, it's super cute! I chose the Meadow color, since it was sent to me before Emery was born, and we didn't know her gender then. It's a great color, though I think if I had known I was having a girl, I would have chosen Orchid or Rose.
Secondly, it fits well, and it would also fit a very tiny baby well. The Duo Diaper comes in just two sizes, but within the two sizes, you can snap each diaper down to make three sizes. So in total, there are six sizes, but you only have to purchase two sets. Love that feature for sure. Emery was not a tiny newborn (8 lbs 10 oz) so I've been using the Duo Diaper on the second snap setting. That means that those of you who have tiny ones can snap it down even smaller to get a great fit!
Another awesome feature of the Duo diaper is the insert. Now, I'm not a huge fan of microfiber, as it can be harder to wash, but this diaper comes with options! The insert is actually two pieces that snap together. One microfiber insert and one hemp insert. You can choose either one, or both at the same time (when you need extra absorbency). So far I've used it with both, but I think I will probably give it a go with just one insert. I'm confident that Emery doesn't actually need both, and that would eliminate some extra bulk.
That brings me to another point. This diaper is not overly bulky, even with both inserts! It does have a generous cut, which is nice for keeping little tushies covered, but it doesn't make your baby look like a big bubble butt :)
Some extra bonus features... you don't have to un-stuff this pocket diaper! The inserts wash right out in your washer, making it mess free. Also, priced at just $20.95 per diaper, they are very affordable in the world of pocket diapers.
One Posh Baby offers everything you need to cloth diaper successfully, including Rockin' Green Detergent, which I have found to be an excellent option for cloth diaper washing, as well as regular laundry. Make sure to check out the great options in diapers and accessories!
