GoGreen Pocket Diaper Review
This review is for the original version of the GoGreen Pocket Diaper.
Fit: 8-35+ pounds
Price Per Diaper: ★★★★★ The original GoGreen Pocket diaper as shown in this review retails for 8.99-9.99 making it one of the most affordable pocket diapers on the market. The newer version (the Champ diaper) retails for $15.95 which is still a very affordable price for a pocket diaper. Overall, the prices are fabulous! And they come in such adorable prints and colors!
Leaks: ★★★☆☆ The inner of this diaper is a soft suedecloth that is very comfy for baby and the diaper comes with a single 3 layer microfiber insert for in the pocket. I found that this insert alone just did not cut it. During the day, the original insert was enough, but for naps and night I needed to add more/other inserts to the pocket. The diaper has elastic around the legs and at the back waist to hug baby and prevent leaks and blow outs. Very comfortable diaper for baby.
Fit: ★★★★☆ This diaper features a 3 snap down rise on the front of the diaper to adjust the rise of the diaper for your baby as he/she grows. There is also a single row of snaps across the waist and two side by side snaps on the tabs to close the diaper. I found that this diaper did not always have the perfect fit around the waist due to my daughter being between snap settings.
Ease of Use: ★★★★☆ Overall, this diaper was quite easy to use. The elastic around the pocket is very stretchy and the pocket itself is quite large to make stuffing a breeze. My only complaint is the waist snaps. Finding the perfect snap setting for your baby can be a challenge if they are between settings. Also, you do need to have additional inserts on hand for naps/night or if you have a heavy wetter.
Washing: ★★★★★ This diaper was a breeze to wash. Due to the generous pocket, un-stuffing is a cinch. The minky outer and the suedecloth inner washed beautifully and I do not see any signs of wear or tear anywhere on the diaper after many uses! This diaper looks brand new!
Overall: ★★★★☆ I love the adorable and abundant assortment of prints and colors that these diapers come in. Even better, the price is just fabulous! The fit of the diaper is mostly ok, which is an acceptable trade off for the price. But the absorbency stinks and the diaper definitely needs more/different inserts. Overall, I would recommend this diaper provided you save some extra money for additional inserts!
