Babykicks 3G Pocket Diaper

Here's what I love:
-The #1 most important factor to me in a diaper is if it holds messy BMs. That was one of the worst parts of using throwaway diapers is the messy leaks up the back and all over clothes. Far and away, this diaper has passed the test on MANY occasions. Not once has anything escaped the back elastic or the leg gussets. I have tried 16 brands and these are the best, hands down.
-The fleece leg gussets. It's the worst to take off a diaper and find red marks on your poor baby's legs. With the fleece, that issue is resolved. And these never wick moisture out onto baby's clothes - leg gussets stay dry, always.
-These diapers are TRIM. Again, 16 brands and these are the trimmest out there. They fit easily under baby jeans (which can't be said about every cloth diaper brand).
-The hemp insert and bamboo fleece pocket absorbs A LOT. These are always my "going out" diaper because I never have to worry about them leaking.
-Clean up is easy. A quick spray with the hose and into the washer. Any stains have always sunned right out.
-Fit a wide range. I've used these on my 15 lb. baby as well as my older baby from 25-32 lbs. I love that both can wear the same diapers.
-Thin between the legs. Some cloth diaper brands are so bulky between the legs, it's hard to get a good fit without gaps. These have a nice contour shape to accommodate that needed trimness between the legs.

Cons:
-I do find it a bit harder to fit these on the smaller babies because the wings almost overlap under the front pocket edge. Then we've had wicking through the wings. Using a hemp fleece piece as a mini soaker has helped combat this problem.

Pros: trim, washes well, good fit

I have been using this diaper on my 14 month old and 36 month old for about 4 months now and I love it. This diaper fit both my children great without any leaks. I love how wonderful it fits under their clothes, super trim. The side snaps make changing my very wiggly kids a breeze. This is one of the softest diapers, inside and out, that we own and the fleece leg guessets never leave red marks. This is the first diaper I choose if I know we are going to be in the car for an extended period because the hemp insert holds so much. This diaper washes great. We never have stains or stink issues. It does take a little longer to dry but it is well worth it to have the natural fibers on my kids. I am looking forward to using the newborn feature in the near future. I have experimented with it and I really feel this would fit a newborn and I know it fits my kid till potty training  as we are starting that journey now.

Pros: Gets super tiny! Absorbent, soft inner, all natural materials

Cons: Not my favorite diaper to stuff

I have had this diaper for a little over a week now, and have used it 3 times on my 9 month old. She is really tiny, 11 lbs, and she can wear it on the smallest rise, the second set of snaps for both waist and legs. When she came home from the hospital at a month old, she was still barely 4 lbs, and we used mostly lil joey's because they were the only diapers small enough to fit her. I wanted to see how small this BabyKicks 3g could get, so I folded in the front and snapped it with the unique crossover snap feature, and it was nearly as small as the lil joey!! It definitely would have fit my daughter when she was under 5lbs.  I love the soft fleece around the leg openings. And the inner is so soft, and solids easily come off the fleece. It doesn't seem to stain easily!  The hemp insert is super trim, much trimmer than any microfiber inserts I have. The only thing that I don't really like is stuffing this diaper, especially because you have a fatter end that goes in the back of the diaper and you stuff it from the front.  Also, the little pocket opening flap at the front of the diaper doesn't seem to really cover the insert completely when I put on the diaper, so I would hesitate to stuff it with anything like microfiber that would possibly come in contact with the baby.

 

Overall, I think it is a great diaper with a lot of well thought out features, especially its unique way of fitting a newborn! It seems really durable, and I love the color! Ours is the blue one.
