KaWaii One Size Pocket Diapers - and the price was right. I ordered four of the suedecloth diapers with aplix closures.
When I got them, I was surprised at the quality of the fabric. The outer shells were soft and durable. The luandry tabs were perfectly placed and the two inserts were much nicer than I had expected. The colors were vibrant and the design of the diaper seemed very smart - overall.
However, in my experience with cloth diapers - some of the best looking diapers can be some of the worst wearing diapers. I was a little skeptical. So I washed them.
Again, I was pleasantly surprised. The outer shells dried - just hanging in my laundry room for about an hour. By that time, the inserts were ready to be pulled from the dryer. I was more than ready to try them on my heavy-wetting eight month old son for his nap.
My boy usually soaks through any diaper I put him in at naptime. For whatever reason, he seems to wet more during his naps than at any other time during the day. I used only one insert - and the bright red KaWaii One Size Diaper for his nap. When he woke, I went in - fully expecting a soaked blanket. To my delight, I found his bedclothes DRY. When I took the diaper off - the insert was wet, but the suedecloth felt dry against his skin. That was the best part for me - knowing that my boy was comfortable and didn't have to feel wet when his diaper was soaked.
The fit is excellent. Snug - without seeming tight or leaving red marks. And the Aplix closure offers an easy adjustable fit. The diaper isn't bulky and there aren't any areas where it seems too loose.
I am completely impressed with these diapers. With cloth diapers - I have often subscribed to the "you get what you pay for" philosophy. So I wasn't expecting much from these bargain priced diapers.
Thankfully they have exceeded my expectations. I can't wait to add more of these to my son's diaper collection.
