When I was still pregnant and first planned to cloth diaper our baby, I decided to go with prefolds and diaper covers because they seemed like the most economical option. I also became overwhelmed trying to figure out the differences between all-in-ones, pockets, all-in-twos, etc. While I had some brands researched, the diapers I ended up buying were dictated by the discounts and deals I found. I have been able to try a few pocket diapers when I found them for a great price (or won them!), but I still feel like I haven’t really had a chance to test even a fraction of the cloth diapers out there. That’s why I was so excited to receive a one-size pocket cloth diaper from new cloth diaper company, Baby Babü.

Design: Baby Babü diapers are designed with openings on both sides of the pocket, which I think makes it easy to stuff the diapers. This also ensures that the insert agitates out in the wash, so I don’t have to worry about messing my hands to pull it out during a diaper change. There is also a small snap on one end of the inside of the pocket that connects with a snap on the insert, which is helpful for keeping the insert with the diaper (no more searching for an insert when I need a diaper now).

Price: Although the prices vary slightly depending on the print (and there are some really cute ones), the average price is around $12 for a one-size pocket diaper. Compared to prices for other pocket diapers that can top $25, I find this price to be very reasonable. I don’t believe that the quality has been sacrificed in order to offer such a low price and I will definitely be interested in buying more of these if when Lucia needs more.
In addition to one-size pocket diapers, Baby Babü also offers one-size diaper covers, wet bags and inserts. And for those families that don’t cloth diaper or who combine cloth and disposables, Baby Babü also carries biodegradable, hypoallergenic, chemical-free disposable diapers. Look for my review of these soon as I will be using them on Lucia when we go to Chicago later this week.
