Let’s Talk About Cheap Amazon Diapers

So, if you’re at all like me, you see these super cheap cloth diapers on Amazon and you wonder, “Are they any good?” Plus, they make some awesome prints! I was gifted a few different brands, so I’ll give you the scoop on the ones that I tried.

First, I think a lot of the brands are the exact same. It appears that they are just rebranded by each company. So, don’t fret over Art of Life diapers or Alva diapers- they are the same. Buy whichever you think are cutest. I tried three brands. Art of Life, Alva Baby (with two different labels), and EcoAble. You’ll also see these, these, and these, which all look exactly the same. Now, the AoL and Alva diapers were the exact same since they were both pocket diapers. The EcoAble were a little different since they are All In One style. We’ll revisit those EcoAble diapers in a different post and focus on the cheapie pockets today.

The Art of Life and Alva diapers are identical. The tags are different, but the actual diaper is the exact same. Same dimensions. Same materials. Same efficacy. The Art of Life tagged diapers actually came from a company named “Lil Bit”, or at least that is what the inserts said. I’m telling you, they are all the same. I actually couldn’t find the AOL tagged diapers to link, but I swear they are out there.

How do they compare to a standard cloth diaper? I’m comparing them to a BumGenius pocket diaper because that seems very run of the mill basic to me. You can see from the pictures that the cheapies are much larger. They also don’t have any interior PUL foldover. The inside fabric is similar, but the cheapies are much rougher feeling. The outer fabric on the cheapies is much thicker. It is a TPU rather than a PUL. So it isn’t as thin. It isn’t breathable at all. And it doesn’t feel as soft.

But do they work? Well, yes and no. I tried both the microfiber inserts and the fancy charcoal inserts. I saw zero difference between those two. They both seemed to work the same. The inserts are actually so similar to my BumGenius inserts, that I now can’t tell which is which on my microfiber inserts.

The problem I have with them is that they are using the exact same size insert as the BumGenius pocket diaper. You can see that they are much bigger than the BumGenius pocket diaper. This means that the insert doesn’t cover all the way across. The inserts get bunched and move around a bit more because they don’t fit the space. I have had many leak issues, specifically through the stitch lines around the legs. Same inserts in the BumGenius diapers and they don’t leak.

So, I switched it up a bit. I tried out my Green Mountain Diaper prefolds instead of the microfiber or charcoal inserts. Because I could pad fold them wider, they worked like a charm. Zero leak issues using prefolds instead of the inserts they came with.

So, yes they work, but you need to modify the system a little bit. These also snap a bit different from the BumGenius. Instead of two parallel snaps, they use two snaps side by side on the top row and then a hip snap on the bottom row. I don’t see a difference with the snaps in how they function. They are just a bit different. But other diaper companies use this triangle snap system, so that isn’t weird or new. Just different from the diaper I’m using to compare.

So, is it worth it? It depends on your situation. If I had gotten these when I first started cloth diapering, I would have deemed the experiment a failure because of leaks. You really do have to work a bit harder to get these not to leak. And that means buying prefolds, so they aren’t as cheap as they seem. However, if you’ve got prefolds and are wanting some “easy” diapers for the sitter or grandma or whatever, these are excellent diapers for that use. They don’t make good overnight diapers. These aren’t so bad that I am looking to off load mine. But I am glad I have more than just these in my stash. They do make some really cute prints. These are my out and about daytime diapers and I now stuff them with Green Mountain Diapers prefolds. On the lowest setting, the small prefold fits well. On the largest setting, you’d need a large prefold.

These started fitting Daisy when she got around 10 lbs. They were a little big on her then, but they did work. I’d say 12 lbs. and up is probably the more reasonable size.

Which Diaper System Should I Choose?

There are so many kinds of cloth diapers out there, it can be difficult to choose which system will work best for your family. You research and research and finally decide, Yes! I will cloth diaper my children. Then, you are faced with which diapers to buy! It can be overwhelming trying to figure out the pros and cons of each system, especially since you’ll be pulling from individual diaper reviews and diaper sites. I often get asked why I chose what I chose, why I like my diapers, and would I choose again the same way if I had to do it all over again. Well, here is an overview of different styles of cloth diapers and what I think is nice about them and what I think is awful about them.

Prefolds (or flats) & Covers

+ They are the cheapest system available.

+ They provide a level of excitement, providing the daily challenge of achieving that perfect fold.

+ Dry quickly.

– They are the most intimidating system, especially to husbands and child care providers.

– Pins or snappis are usually required. (I have a personal aversion to pins and snappis.)

– Can be difficult to get the absorbency just right.

– Often bulky.

– Can be difficult to get on a squirmy baby or toddler.

– Sizes are usually needed. (There are a few kinds that offer one size covers. Econobum is the main one that comes to mind.)

Fitteds and Covers

+ Cute and often trim.

+ Great for containing messes. (Really great fro holding in newborn poo!)

+ Very absorbent and usually require little “fiddling” to get absorbency right.

+ Easier to use.

+ Can easily use all natural fibers only.

+ Can make yourself or buy from a work at home mom.

+/- Can be the most expensive system or a very affordable system depending on your personal choices.

– The most addictive cloth diapering system. (Yes, cloth diapers can be addictive.)

– More difficult to adjust absorbency if the absorbency isn’t right for your little one from the start.

– Take more time to dry.

– Usually need various sizes. (There are a few brands that offer a One Size fitted diaper and you can find One Size covers.)

Pocket Diapers

+ Easy to use.

+ Most common type of One Size diapers.

+ Dry quickly.

+ Easy to adjust absorbency.

+ Only require one diaper “layer.” No extra cover is needed.

– Require “assembly” of diapers after each wash.

– Usually made of man made fibers.

– Can be expensive, depending on the diaper you choose.

All-In-One Diapers

+ Easy to use. Easy for you. Easy for husbands. Easy for child care providers.

+ No assembly required. Ready straight from the wash.

+ Only one diaper “layer” is needed. No extra cover necessary.

– Can take quite a while to dry.

– More difficult to adjust absorbency if you need to.

– Can be quite expensive.

All-In-Two Diapers

+ Fairly easy to use.

+ Dry faster than all-in-ones.

+ Theoretically, you can reuse the outer cover, meaning you’ll have less diaper laundry and less cost.

– Not a good system for babies with loose poo. (The poo contaminates the cover, eliminating the chance of reusing it.)

– Require “assembly” before use.

What to do with all this information?

Well, I looked at everything and narrowed down the most important for me. I knew I would be drying my diapers in my dryer, so I’d want something that dried quickly. I knew I needed something that would work immediately without a lot of trial and error. The Pastor was barely on board with cloth diapering, so I needed it to work and be easy for him. I wanted a one size solution, since I have multiple children in diapers at one time, I didn’t want to have to separate and keep several different sizes out all the time. I just needed one stash for all the children I was diapering (except newborns). I did not want to use snappis or pins.

So, with all that information, I chose to buy one size pocket diapers. They worked without any playing around with them. They were easy to use. The only real downside for my family is that I have to assemble them when they come out of the dryer and that takes time.

I have since used every other system, except prefolds. I can say, I can find things I like and don’t like about them all. If I had to do it over again, I would have bought less variety and tried to stick with one brand. (Having a bazillion brands makes it difficult when you are assembling your diapers. It also makes it difficult on care providers to switch from one brand to another, when they aren’t really comfortable with my diapers to begin with.) I love fitteds and covers for the newborn stage! I really dislike all-in-twos.

So, what should I choose?

That is up to you. You shouldn’t feel like you have to choose just one system. I knew that in the beginning, it would make it easier for The Pastor if I only had one system. But many families use on system at home and one system while out. Or one system during the day and another at night. Choosing an easier system at first will make your transition into cloth easier. (Some people find prefolds very frustrating and quit cloth diapering because of these frustrations.) It is up to you!

A note about one size diapers: I often find that I would have probably liked sized diapers, too. There are several brands of one size diapers that require internal adjustment of either the diaper or the insert, that defeat my “one stash” goal. Also, diapers don’t last forever, so with one size diapers now on their third bum, I find they get very worn out. It might have been just the same to buy the various sizes and end up with more diapers, lasting longer. As it is, I must replace my diapers when they’ve had enough. I once thought one size diapers would save me money, and if I had one child, they would. But since I’ve now cloth diapered 3, I find that I would have spent the same, either way.

Happy Diapering!!! (You can check out my reviews of each of my diapers in the “Off The Bum” category.)

BumGenius 3.0 One Size Pocket

Like my grumpy little bumGenius model? He is just so lovable, even grumpy.  I can’t say the same for bumGenius.

I am not a bumGenius fan. There. I said it. I’m glad we got that out of the way first. While I am not a fan, the 3.0 one size pocket has some nice parts. One nice part that no other diaper I have tried has is a little extra PUL protection around the top inside front of the diaper. bumGenius puts a little strip of PUL around the top of the inside of the front. Why is that cool? Well, one size diapers tend to flip out a bit at the top on the smaller sizes. Those adorable little chubby bellies tend to roll the front of the diaper down. (I know you know what I’m talking about. My maternity jeans did it ALL THE TIME!) That little extra strip of PUL keeps urine from wicking out the top via the interior fabric. (Not common, but happens a lot at night when they wet their diapers a lot.) Another plus is that suedecloth (which is the interior fabric of a bG 3.0 unless you get your hands on some of the limited edition fleece versions) does not stain. It also wicks away wetness pretty well. I also cannot say I’ve got any serious leaking problems. I love their inserts, I’ve got several extras that I use for added protection when needed. That is where my likes end.

Wow! I dislike my bumGenius diapers so much I don’t take pictures of them! Yikes. Well, now for what I do not like about bumGenius 3.0 one size pocket diapers. Suedecloth is quite possibly my least favorite interior fabric for a diaper. It tends to make all my little ones have small red bumps on their bums. (Smartipants and Rocky Mountains also do this, since they are suedecloth inside, too.) And suedecloth is not the softest stuff around. (Kind of reminds me of a softish polyester felt.) I also loathe velcro, or aplix if you’d rather use the cloth diaper term. BumGenius has particularly terrible aplix. It really grabs everything in the world and gets weak very fast. I have to weekly attempt to remove the strings and lint build up in the aplix. The laundry tabs are also a joke. They don’t hold at all. (Blueberrys are the only aplix diaper I have that holds to the laundry tabs.) So, really the bumGenius 3.0 just has all the things I happen to dislike in a diaper. If they had a snap version, I might like that. (Especially if it was a snap & fleece version- oh wait! That would be a Haute Pocket!!) The aplix issue makes this diaper’s life max out around a year and a half.

Realistically, this diaper fits around 8 lbs. You may be able to make it work on a 7 lb. baby since it is velcro. And it does max out between 35 and 40 lbs. (38 lb. Imo can wear these in a pinch, but they are tight and uncomfortable on her.) The shape of these is the same as a Haute Pocket or Smartipants.

Would I recommend the bumGenius 3.0 One Size Pocket Diaper? Not really. If you like aplix and suedecloth, then go for it. If you like the idea of bumGenius but would like a cheaper option, Smartipants would be a better choice. If you are like me and find the fit of a bG okay, but wants snaps and fleece, then you’d be happier with Haute Pocket Traditional One Size Pocket diapers. There are better diapers out there. These just fall short all over the place for me. Yes, they work. But why settle?

Here is my sad little bumGenius 3.0 one size pocket diaper after a little over a year of use.

A close up of my aplix tab on my bumGenius 3.0. You can see how yucky it looks and how it curls up, not holding where it is stuck.

And a close up of the loop strip. It is fraying. Sad little diaper needs to be put out of its misery.

Swaddlebee’s Econappi Review

The diaper on the right is my one Swaddlebee Econappi One Size Pocket diaper. Shown with a Blueberry Deluxe, because they are ultimately the same diaper. The difference is in the fabric choices on the interior and the insert. The Econappi has an organic velour lining and insert. (The insert is a two fabric insert with hemp, too.)

The interior fabric stains easily. That isn’t a big issue with me, since they are diapers. The inner fabric is nice a soft for the first couple hundred washes. They do feel wetter with this diaper, as the velour does not wick away moisture quite like some of the fleeces and microfibers do. It wasn’t enough of an issue to bother any of my children. Over time, the interior fabric gets rougher feeling. It doesn’t bother the children, but is not as nice and lush feeling as it once was. **Update: the newer version of the Swaddlebees Econappi has much softer velour. The velour stays soft and buttery feeling against their skin. This is a big improvement! The velour still doesn’t wick moisture away, but it is a natural material. Some kids do better with natural fibers on their bum instead of synthetic stuff. It is a trade off. Do you want baby’s skin to stay dryer or do you want natural fibers on her bum? Only you know which you prefer.

I tried the Econappi as an all in two, like the company claims you can, and it didn’t work out. The liner is not wide enough to make sure there is no spill over and the interior fabric ends up soaked. I gave it several attempts on different kids and always got the same result.

The Econappi runs a bit larger than other one size diapers. Realistically, these diapers start fitting around 10 lbs on a very round baby. (If you have a long, lean child- it may be more like 12 lbs.) They do fit up to 40 lbs, I’d guess. Imogene is 38 lbs. and this diaper still easily fits her, though it is becoming a bit low rise on her. Also, with multiple kids in this diaper, the way the diaper goes together and snaps down can be a bit of a problem. I like to put all my diapers together out of the dryer. But the Econappi insert must be snapped together for the size you’re setting the diaper. So, I have to decide out of the dryer who will wear it and set it aside for that child, which is kind of a pain to me “any kid can wear any diaper” system.

I’m not sure how well you can see it in the photo, but the back seam of my Econappi is coming loose. Yes, I can fix it, but I don’t like having to. I want my most expensive diaper to hold together better than my cheaper ones. The casing around the back elastic is coming unsewn. It is still wearable, but it is a pretty obnoxious problem. ** I did fix this. It was a very simple fix.

** After about 500 washes, the insert on my old Econappi fell apart. I bought a replacement insert and am still using the old cover. Still going strong and getting close to 1,000 washes now.

I do not like this diaper as an overnight diaper (unless it is on the smallest setting) because it just doesn’t hold enough at night. I also don’t like this diaper for trips to the park. Sounds odd, I know, but hear me out. When the older ones are running and climbing, the insert gets all pushed around inside the diaper. It leaks. Everytime I take a kid to the park in the diaper, it leaks. It is fine if they aren’t running and climbing. It does fine on trips when they are sitting still in their car seats. ** With the newer version, I didn’t have leak problems as much. I still don’t like them as night diapers, but don’t have daytime issues with the new ones.

Do I like this diaper? Eh, it’s alright. Would I recommend this diaper? If money is no issue and it doesn’t bother you to have issues with an expensive item, sure, go on and buy it. If you find some amazing half price deal and you can live with the small annoyances, then sure, go on and buy. Will I buy more? No, it isn’t worth it to me. There are diapers half the price that work so much better.

** I bought 3 more Econappis in the new version. I found them on Babysteals.com one day and thought, “Why not?” I have been much happier with the newer version. No leaks. No falling apart. (I’ve had the new ones for about 300 washes.) It seems they have fixed the minor problems they had before. It still isn’t an all-in-two, but it is a much better diaper for the money. They are still pricey diapers, but now, in my mind, they are worth it. They use top quality, all natural fabrics (other than the outer). I haven’t found another diaper like it. If you are looking for natural fibers against your baby’s skin and want a pocket diaper, this is definitely the way to go. 

Looking for a similar style diaper at a more affordable price? Try Tweedle Bugs. Looking for a cotton velour interior? Look up GrahamBearWear fitted diapers on Etsy. Looking for velour of any kind? Check out WAHMies.

**You may also want to check out Swaddlebees new sized AIO diaper -the Swaddlebees Simplex. It is the same company, same fabrics. The diapers are sized, but are much cheaper than the Econappi.

Haute Pockets Review

** An Update: I am so sad to update this review! Haute Pockets were once my favorite diaper. I loved them! We had such a good thing going. Then, as I mentioned, I had the PUL issue (it melted!) on one of my breathable green Haute Pocket diapers. I was sad, but felt I had gotten good use out of the diaper. Plus, I bought it on clearance at clothdiaperclearance.com. (If you haven’t checked that site out yet, go do it now! Really, I’ll wait! Doo dee doo doo … Back now? Great! I’ll continue my rant!) So, I really did feel like I got my money’s worth. And one clearance diaper out of 6 biting the dust after a good 10 months or so of use is good stuff, right? Well, I felt so. It did squelch my love for them a bit, but I tried to move on and continue loving them. Then, 2 out of my 3 traditional Haute Pockets (that I paid FULL PRICE for!) had the elastic go! After only 8 months of use I have two diapers with ZERO stretch in the elastic. At first I thought, oh no, it isn’t my diapers, it’s me! I must be doing something wrong. But it is only these and it is 2 out of 3 of my Traditional style. It can’t just be me. I can probably fix it, but it will probably be the end of my Haute Pocket love. Yes, I will still use and try my best to love those I still have. But I can never again say they are my favorite diaper. So sad. I did send Haute Pockets a break up letter. I felt it only fair to let them know that my love for them has come to an end. Maybe I’ll get around to putting up photos of the once loved but now useless diapers once the sting of the break up has worn off. I still have 6 out of 9 diapers that are perfectly fine, but those 3 have caused me to have a change of heart about recommending them so highly to everyone I know (and even those I don’t!). I’ll let you, my dear readers, know if Haute Pocket responds to my break up letter in any way, good or bad. It may bring us all some needed closure. **

Photos of my melted PUL. This only happened to one out of 6, so far. So, this one has a new purpose now!

** I received a reply back from my breakup letter with Haute Pockets. It was really anticlimactic, really. All I got was a standard reply, “Thank you for your e-mail. We are unable to replace your diapers since they are outside of warranty.” Further investigation on my part found that they have a 6 month warranty.  So, there is my closure I suppose. **

** Another sad update: Now my one and only still functioning Traditional Style Haute Pocket Diaper has also passed from use. Like the other two Traditional Style Haute Pocket One Size Diaper, the elastic shot. This time it was the back elastic. So, 2 lasted about 8 months. 1 lasted about 10 months. Not good enough, in my opinion. As sad as that makes me, I probably won’t be buying any more Haute Pocket diapers. (Even though they are currently on clearance.) And I no longer recommend these diapers because of my long term experience with them. Sad, too.**

Haute PocketsHaute Pocket One Size Pocket diapers are one of my all time favorite diaper! I have 6 of the old “breathable” version and 3 of the new “traditional” version. I’ve been using these diapers for quite some time and most of them have held up well. (I did have one diaper “melt” in the dryer. The plastic backing of the PUL melted and pulled away from the diaper, making that particular diaper completely unusable. However, this has so far only happened to the one diaper, though they are all washed the same and all washed together. Go figure. I did get a year’s use out of it, so I didn’t mourn its passing too much!) Since the original writing of this post, I have had 3 with shot elastic after less than 10 months of use. The three with bad elastic were Traditional One Size Haute Pockets.

Haute PocketsThe details. Haute Pocket claims their diaper will fit most babies from birth to potty training, specifying a fit from 8 lbs. to 35 lbs. My newborns are not 8 lbs, so that bit is out for me! However, they really do fit an 8 lb. infant! If your baby is on the rounder side, they would probably fit a 7 lb. baby! And they really do fit all the way up to 35 lbs. I have a 35 lb. 3 year old that can still fit in these diapers. They may fit a child weighing more than 35 lbs., if they child is on the tall and skinny end of things. My 3 year old has thunder thighs, and these fit her.

The interior fabric is a microfleece. It is very soft. It does pill a bit over time, but continues to remain nice and soft. The inserts are oddly shaped, but work really well! The doublers snap onto the insert, so they don’t slide around inside the diaper.

I’m not sure if you can tell in the picture above, but the blue diaper on the right is the old version and the yellow diaper on the left is the new version. The old version is slightly smaller than the new version (and is a very tight fit on my 35 lb. child). The old version is “breathable.” I like them, but they are not good overnight or traveling diapers. They don’t leak, but if left on for a long time (like over night) the water vapor will “breath” out of the diaper and cause pjs to feel damp when they wake up. The very good thing about the “breathable” version is that they let their little bums breath a bit. I like this feature a lot for daytime diapers. If your child has a slightly red bottom, put them in a breathable diaper and the redness clears up! I actually try to make it a point to put this diaper on first thing after they wake up. Seems nice to have a little air flow after a full night in one diaper. The inserts on the newer version are also a little wider. They will still work with the old version and the old version inserts still work in the new version.

interior Haute Pocket

This picture shows you my one and only complaint against Haute Pockets. The pocket opening gapes. It doesn’t effect wear or use, but it looks bad in my diaper basket. Like most pocket diapers, you have to make sure the interior is tucked into the diaper in the back. The opening is wider than most pocket diapers, which makes stuffing very simple (especially with the larger insert) but it creates this problem.

I really like Haute Pockets. I have never used the hook & loop version, just snaps. These are fabulous little diapers.

Who would I recommend these diapers to? Anyone, really! If you like the fit of bumGenius one size diapers, you would like these diapers. Or if you are looking for an alternative to bumGenius one size diapers, these diapers are for you! If you need a nice pocket diaper, you’ll like these diapers. I have revised my recommendation based on long term use. I do not recommend these diapers. They do not hold up and last as long as they should. With all three of my Traditional Style Haute Pockets, the elastic was shot and needing replacement within 10 months. With the old breathable style, I had one with melting PUL. So, out of 9 Haute Pockets over the course of a year, I now only have 5 of them that are usable. (Note: Elastic in cloth diapers can be replaced. When it is shot you do not necessarily loose diaper function. If you don’t sew, you’ll have to find someone to replace the elastic. I do sew but have not gotten around to replacing the elastic. When I do replace my elastic, I’ll try to provide a tutorial on elastic replacement for those of you that sew. However, I do not think the elastic in a diaper should require replacement during one child’s worth of use. That means, I think the elastic should last for at least 2 years. Replacing elastic after 2 years is not a huge deal, in my opinion. Replacing it before a year is up is completely unacceptable.) If you need a snap diaper with fleece interior, consider Fuzzi Buns or Tweedle Bugs. If you like the look of a Haute Pocket and don’t mind a bulky diaper, try SmartiPants. You may also like WAHMies.

SmartiPants Review

Smartipants Label I bought 4 of these diapers because I just HAD to try them out. They are cheaper than most cloth diapers ($39.95 for 3). They boast that you can leave the insert in once it is dirty! I wasn’t quite sure how that claim would work out, I mean, if you have ever forgotten to unstuff a pocket diaper, you know how well that turns out. But for the price, I figured I would give them a shot!

interior of SmartipantsSo, here are all the diaper details! Smartipants are made in the USA, with decent quality materials and workmanship, in my opinion. Smartipants claims to fit from newborn to toddler years; 7 pounds to 35 pounds. Well, my newborns are smaller than 7 lbs, so that wouldn’t exactly be true for my children. Realistically, they would fit a 7 lb. infant, provided that infant was not very long and skinny. They do fit my 35 lb. 3 year old, though they wouldn’t fit her too much longer. (Luckily, they won’t need to.) I doubt you’d get them on a toddler much over 35 lbs, unless that toddler was tall and skinny. The interior of smartipants is suedecloth, with a PUL exterior. Unlike many pocket diapers, you don’t actually see the inside of the PUL because of the “smart sleeve” design. Unlike most pocket diapers with an opening between the PUL and the interior layer, Smartipants has the PUL layer completely covered and has another rectangle of suedecloth sewn on top, creating a “sleeve” for inserts.

single smartipantsAt first, I had leaking issues with my Smartipants. I contacted the company and they quickly responded to my inquiry. I have to use two inserts in my Smartipants. No leaking now with doubled inserts.

I am pretty happy with Smartipants. Once you double (or triple for nighttime) up the inserts, they work well. And the inserts do indeed come out of the sleeve on their own in the wash. (This is a super big plus when you take these diapers out on the town and return home with a wetbag full of dirty diapers. No need to touch cold, wet insert- just put them fully stuffed and dirty into the diaper pail! Nice, right?) Smartipants work with Smartipants inserts, Nicki’s diapers inserts, bumGenius inserts, Fuzzi Bunz inserts, and any other rectangular insert you happen to have. I have not tried it, but I’m sure you could get a prefold in there as well.

Who would I recommend these diapers to? Well, I think any bumGenius lover that wants to move to snaps would like these diapers. I think anyone wanting a cheap, but functional one size pocket diaper would be happy with these diapers. I think anyone that likes the fit of a Haute Pocket would like these. If you like the idea of a pocket, but can’t stand the thought of touching and pulling out dirty inserts (or have a sitter or husband who refuses to pull our dirty inserts), you’ll like these diapers! Just make sure you buy extra inserts, since most likely a single stuffing won’t be sufficient.
