Pocket Diapers

Pocket diapers are probably the most common type of diapers. They are slightly different then an AIO in that after the diaper is cleaned you have to stuff it with an insert, but once it is stuffed it is the same as an AIO. As you can see from the top picture on the left these diapers have a sort of pocket that an insert is sticking out of. The great thing about pocket diapers is you can change the absorbency depending on the needs of your child.  This is especially useful for overnight or nap time, you can put two inserts in so the child will not wet through the diaper. Most commonly inserts are made of micro fiber because it can absorb a lot of liquid.  Hemp and bamboo are also very common materials used in the insert. Another great thing about pocket diapers is that they have stay dry material on the inside against babies skin.  The most commonly used is micro fleece, with this liner the diaper feels dry even when you press your hand against it.  The outer layer is usually made of PUL with the plastic feeling side facing toward the stay dry material so it does not touch babies skin.  In the lower picture on the right is the outside of the diaper snapped up.  Pocket diapers either close with snaps or with velcro.  The diaper pictured is a one-size fits all so it has snaps to adjust the rise as your baby grows. Almost all pocket diapers have the one size option.

  • Adjustable absorbancy
  • One size diapers
  • Stay dry inside
  • Shorter drying time
  • Easy to use
  • More work than an AIO
