What is the best one-size pocket diaper and why?

[deleted account] ( 19 moms have responded )

I just ordered one-size wahmies with hooks and snaps, bumgenius 3.0, and kanga's. I was dissapointed to find out that the bumgenius do not wick moisture away from the baby's bottom. I mostly use drybees pockets but was looking for a one-size alternative since they end up being more cost effective. Too bad they don't make one-size drybees! I'd be in heaven!

Hello,
I have been researching the different types of cloth diapers over the last few days. I am wondering if anybody has tried the Bamboozles Bamboo Cloth Diapers. I'm not too sure about the pocket cloth diapers since you have to stuff them. I kind of like the idea of the fitted cloth diapers along with Bummis Super Whisper Wraps, which you don't need to change each time. If anybody can let me know if they have tried these and what they think of them that would be great. :)

i ordered the one-size bumgenius and fuzibunz as well as a 2 part one size called gro baby i trialed all 3 for several weeka nad decided that the gro baby are the best for us they fit well are easy and no leaks. i was disappointed that after only about 10 washes the elastic in one leg ofg the bum genius gave out... not good at all. the fuzi bun was grewat also but was very bulky on my little guy ( 9lb 13 oz at birth now 14 lb at 4 months. but it is very absorbent and works well for long periods without leaking the fleece leave babys' skin nice and dry... my husband vetoed these as the snaps were too much for him and loves the velco on the grobaby

most of my stash is made up of bum genius 3.0. however since i tried baby kanga's i find that i love them WAY more and am quickly increasing their numbers in my diaper drawer. mostly it's the snaps! i LOVE the snaps on the kanga's. i also really like the blueberry minky diapers. they are a bit more expensive, but as a nice treat to baby (and me) they are so so so soft!

Ok, so I got the diapers in the mail today. I was so excited I didn't even wait to open the package at home! So far I've found that the wahmies and bumgenius don't totally wick the moisture as well as my drybees, but they do fit really well. I haven't tried the kangas yet. The wahmies with snaps are really easy to stuff, but not the wahmies with hooks. They sewed the hooks through to the liner so you can't stuff the insert all the way in and it's also a tight fit width-wise. The bumgenius and kangas are easy enough to stuff but I like being able to touch the liner to see if it's damp to change my daughter and it's a little difficult to do that with those ones. So, all in all I like the wahmies with snaps the best so far, but it would be even better if they made drybees onesize. I think I might buy my own snap press and snaps and do it myself. Anyone know a good place to buy the equipment?

The Bum Genius one size Organic do not wick moisture as they are all cotton. But the regular 3.0 with the microfiber inserts wick.

we use the Bum Genius 3.0 OS pocket diapers and we love them! Never had any leaks and they fit really nice and no rash! They are also really easy to use which makes it convenient when on the go and for baby sitters and all. I would definetly recommend Bum Genius 3.0!

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions! I heard from someone that the BGs don't wick, but the website says they do. Guess I shouldn't listen to that advice again. My baby is mostly proportionate for her height and weight just a little on the chubby side. I like how those fuzzi bunz sound without the snaps.

I LOVE my fuzzi Bunz one-size, they do not fold down with snaps in the front. The size change is in the legs and waist. I love them. My little guy has really sensitive skin and they keep him dry and rash free :-)

We use BGs at night and love them so far on our 8 month old. I also have tried smarty pants and have leaks every time at night. My son often rolls to his stomach in his sleep and wakes up with a wet belly and wet sheets even while just napping. We never have leak issues with BGs. I would like to try something that feels dry under wool this winter though. During the day we use flats which are always one size and either go coverless or use a blueberry onesize cover.

That liner on the bgs does keep baby's tush dry, so you should be okay. You might also try a hemp insert, especially at night, because they're super absorbent and that will help the liner do its job better. As for which one is best, it varies a lot according to the baby's size/shape... what's yours like?

I would say mine, :) I would have to say it is because of the way they are made. (besides with tons of love) I have figured out the best way to sew them so there isn't leakage and also the snaps. I love snaps! and they are a great one size! you can see them here http://niftynappy.com good luck! :)
