Can we just put it out in the open: I’m not a pocket diaper type of person.
That’s why pocket cloth diapers are one of the least talked about cloth diapers on this blog.
I wrote about the Elemental Joy and then compared it to the bumGenius 5.0. I also have a super trendy post on the best ruffle cloth diaper from a few years ago. But besides that, it’s mostly anything but.
Hey guys, just disclosing that I use affiliate links in this post.
However, aside from that, my cloth diaper world revolves around all-in-one cloth diapers and cloth diaper covers. #obsessed. But, my local cloth diaper dealer hires a highly persuasive woman who talked me into trying the Thirsties Pocket Cloth Diaper, and now I’m secretly glad they didn’t carry this brand during my peak cloth diapering years.
Thirsties Pocket Cloth Diaper
Thirsites pocket cloth diaper is a one size cloth diaper FEATURING a handy pocket for stuffing your favourite absorbency. Pocket cloth diapers are often touted as a simple to use cloth diapering system: add absorbency and go.
Sizing on this pocket diaper is more generous than mnay other pocket diapers on the cloth diaper market. Ranging from 8-40lbs, the Thirsties Pocket cloth diaper features a double waist snap (or hook and loop options) and a triple rise setting with three options.
Inside the diaper is a pocket lining with microfleece to give baby that stay dry feeling. Additional leg gussets, characteristic of other Thirsties cloth diapers, help provide all the support with your baby needs to keep the wet in.
This diaper comes with two inserts that can be easily added to the pocket opening at the back of the diaper. The inserts feature a newborn sized microfiber (3 layers) and a full-size hemp cotton (5 layers). These inserts snap together.
It’s available at these retailers:
- LagoonBaby (Canada)
- Cloth Diaper Kids (Canada)
- Nicki’s Diapers (USA)
- My Sweet Pickles (USA)
- Amazon (USA)
Love at First Sight
There’s a reason I included this cloth diaper on my list of three cloth diapers to get you started because it’s just magnificent. Here’s what I love about the Thirsites Pocket Cloth Diaper.
- Natural Fiber Inserts: I’m a strong opposer of microfiber inserts, and it makes me giddy to receive anything else. I love hte combo of microfiber and hemp/cotton because it gives the quick speed of microfiber and the reliability of hemp/cotton. I always use this insert and have not replaced it.
- Sizing & Fit: This diaper just fits great. I’ve never had a leak, or burst, or anything. At over 20lbs, my youngest rocks this cloth diaper with ease. The Thirsties Pocket Cloth Diaper is so easy to put on and never a hassle.
- Quality: Thirsties just makes quality products. Thirsties products are made here in the United States, and I’m continually impressed with how this pocket cloth diaper is holding up. Cheers to that.
Maybe I don’t Like It?
I always like to provide some thought about why I don’t like a cloth diaper because it makes it real and not everything in life is perfect, somethings, like motherhood, just suck. But, I really can’t think of anything I’m not a fan of.
The pocket opening is big enough for a massive hand, and the Thirsties Pocket Cloth Diaper fits both my kids. That’s a win. I’ll let you know if I think of something. If there is something you hate or maybe drives you batty, let me know in the comments below.
Just like in my other post, I definitely recommend the Thirsties Pocket Cloth Diaper. Don’t build your entire stash with it, but definitely try it and fall in love.
I say don’t build an entire stash because what if you hate stuffing pocket cloth diapers? Some of us find all all in one cloth diaper like the bumGenius Elemental just easier to use? While others prefer systems like the Omaiki Cabrio or Buttons Cloth Diaper. Try a little of everything before making the plunge. Okay.
This is a diaper I always send to the babysitters. I figure it’s easy enough and reliable to trust with a stranger. This is a diaper that still fits my chunky toddler. I love it. It’s never a fight to get on, and it always keeps in the mess.
