Pocket Cloth Diapers- Easy or an Extra Hassle?

There are a number of different types of cloth diapers, like prefolds, flats, all-in-ones, and pockets. Every cloth diapering parent has their favorite or prefers one over the other. My personal preference is pockets. Some parents don't love pockets because they don't like to have to stuff the inserts in the pockets, which is completely understandable! But I always reach for my pockets and below are a few reasons why!

Pockets are Customizable

I love pocket diapers because of how customizable they are. I can add or take away as much absorbency as I need to. So for night I just add an extra insert into one of my pocket diapers and it keeps my little guy from leaking through the night. During the day I only have to use one insert and I'm good to go! 

Pockets come in Sized and One-Size

You can usually get pocket diapers in sized or one-size. A good example of a brand that offers both is Fuzzibunz Cloth Diapers. They provide sizes small, medium, and large, and also a one-size Elite pocket cloth diaper. Both types of Fuzzibunz diapers  work great! It's all a matter of if you prefer sized or one-size and how they fit your baby!

Large Variety to Choose From

There are so many brands of pocket cloth diapers to choose from you are bound to find one you like! Even if you don't like stuffing them you will more than likely find one that fits your little one great and works great for your baby! My two favorite brands are probably Fuzzibunz diapers and Bumgenius 4.0s. I used Fuzzibunz when my babies were younger and I use Bumgenius 4.0s a lot now that my son is a toddler and bigger!

So as you can see I really like pocket diapers! The majority of my stash is pocket diapers and I always reach for them when given a choice! 

Which type of cloth diapers do you prefer or are most interested in trying? 


  1. This is great information for all the cloth diaper addicts out there.. Looks very adorable and compact. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. My favorite type of cloth diaper is the all-in-one. I do like pocket diapers, but only if the insert self agitates out in the wash. Like you, my BG diapers get the most use out of my stash.

  3. I wish I could use cloth. Unfortunately, we don't have a washing machine where we live.

  4. This is very cute especially the one with the pockets. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I like OS pockets. Most of my stash is made up of them
