Pocket diapers are a favorite for many cloth diapering families. They are simple to use and simple to care for.
Pocket diapers do not require a cover. They do require some sort of absorbent layers or inserts to be slipped inside the pocket opening (usually at the back waist edge of the diaper). The absorbency level of pocket diapers is completely customizable. Use one insert for a trimmer diaper, two or more inserts for more absorbency. Because pocket diapers come apart, they wash easily and dry quickly.
One size pocket diapers have the added economical benefit of being adjustable to multiple sizes in one diaper. Happy Heiny one-size diaper and Coquí Baby one-size pocket diaper can both be adjusted to four different sizes to accommodate a weight range of approximately 7-8 pounds up to about 35-40 pounds.
