I get so excited whenever a new cloth diaper product comes out. In this post, I want to give you a sneak peek of the new Lalabye Baby Pocket diaper. (Update: I have since posted my review of this diaper at this link)
The outside of the diaper is made out of a waterproof PUL fabric.
The inside of the diaper is lined with a stay dry suedecloth so that the baby doesn’t feel as much wetness.
The diaper is a pocket diaper, which means there are pocket openings on each side that you can put an insert into. This gives a lot of flexibility in the way of adding absorbency. It is also nice because (depending on your machine size) the insert self-agitates in the wash, so you don’t have to unstuff a soiled diaper.
The diaper comes with two different bamboo inserts, a newborn and a one size. They are both made with four layers of bamboo. Because these inserts are made out of a natural fabric, they are totally safe up against the baby’s skin. That means that if you have a lighter wetter, you can actually have the insert lay on TOP of the diaper and once it is soiled, change it out and replace it with a new one (reusing the cover).
The diaper has a four row snap down rise. You snap it all the way down for the smallest setting, or on the middle rows for a medium setting, or totally unsnapped for the largest setting.
Across the inside of the diaper (touching the baby’s belly) is a layer of PUL (I love when diapers have this–it is so great for a tummy sleeper because it helps prevent wicking across the stomach).
The diaper features snap closure that have a rainbow array of colors on them. The double row snap closure makes it to where you can have the diaper synched tighter around the legs and looser on the stomach, and vice versa. The rainbow snaps are great because you can remember what color your baby’s size setting is on.
Where to Buy: At the moment these are only sold at the Lalabye Baby Website.
I am reviewing this now, so I can’t wait to update you on how this goes! What feature of this diaper do you find most interesting?
Although Lalabye Baby provided this diaper for review, it did not impact the opinions reflected in this post.
