When it comes to sensitivity, not much tops a young babe’s buns. That delicate area needs to be treated with care, including the materials you rest next to it. What could be a better diaper choice than natural organic hemp and cotton? That is exactly what the BabyKicks 3g Pocket Diaper brings to the table er… nursery. If you are also looking for an adjustable one-size diaper, BabyKicks has you covered again.
The BabyKicks 3g Pocket Diaper has a stream-lined design with adjustable buttons to create a snug fit. They have just the right amount of material to adequately cover, but not to much to be bunchy or bulky. The inner lining is so soft, perfect for the aforementioned delicate skin. The lining extends to the leg gussets, which seems genius to me. No chaffing on the thighs! This lining is a micro fleece that prevents moisture wicking to the outside. And here is why the gusset being lined with the micro fleece is so key–no leaking from the legs. While this feature is keeping the messes in, it also allows for a nice constant airflow, preventing diaper rash. The incredibly soft inner liner (against baby’s skin) is made of luxurious 30% Certified Organic Cotton and 70% Rayon made from Bamboo. This material is resilient to washings yet silky. It is the perfect material for an item you will be washing a ridiculous amount of times.
Another key feature is that the insert goes in a forward-facing pocket, as opposed to rear entry pockets. I’ve noticed with back pockets, the insert can wiggle with baby’s natural movement, causing it to hang out the back. With the front entry, this doesn’t happen (and doesn’t come out the front either). The outer PUL shell is waterproof and really holds back the business inside. The shell itself is softer than most others and allows airflow as well. The colors are bright and gender neutral (see below).
You might also notice that the front panel is wider at the top, a unique feature. This allows for maximum size range, creating a more comfortable fit. The One Size featured here is for newborns to toddlers, right up to potty training. It also has a unique newborn wrap style to accommodate the smallest of babies. The size range listed is 7 lbs – 40 lbs (what a range!). Simply snap down the diaper to fit your growing child. Speaking of snaps, the 3g Pocket Diaper has side snaps which eliminate the wing droop issue. There are two rows of snaps–one to fit the waist, one to fit the thighs. ingenious. They also are more difficult for little baby’s prying fingers. Taking a diaper off and then running around the house can end up being a disaster, so let’s prevent. The insert is a hemp and organic cotton mix, the perfect blend for maximum absorbency. Hemp is also known for its durability and anti-microbial properties. It is also better for the earth than cotton, as it improves the soil it is grown in rather than deplete it!
When I first saw the diaper, I was concerned. My reason is that it simply looks quite different from the others I own. Turns out, those unique features are the best part of the 3g Pocket Diaper! Overall, testing on a 7 month old baby went perfectly. After a good amount of poo and washes, the BabyKicks 3g Pocket Diaper looked the same as when it first arrived. There were no blow outs, leaks, or cranky rashy baby– grade A. Purchase your own BabyKicks diaper online from their website and a host of other retailers. Unsure of how to start cloth diapering? BabyKicks hosts web seminars on UStream where you can find live classes on cloth diapering.
