Ease of Use: 8/10
Let me just start by saying that the Love My pocket cloth diapers were among some of the first that I purchased. I bought these when I first started thinking about cloth diapering our Pumpkin and at a price of $27.95 on Amazon, I just couldn’t resist. These are still in our rotation and I don’t plan on phasing them out anytime soon.
These are a one size cloth diaper and so, hypothetically, they should fit from birth through potty training. That being said, these will dwarf a newborn. We didn’t start using these until Pumpkin was 10.5 pounds and we were on the smallest rise and waist snaps. Now that he’s closer to 15 pounds, we haven’t adjusted anything to make these larger so I’m sure (unless he suddenly puts on about 30 pounds) that these will last us through potty training.
For a cheap and non name-brand diaper, these are surprisingly good quality. Out of the 6 pack I purchased there were maybe one or two that had rogue strings that I needed to cut. These have held up to many trips through the wash and show no signs of falling apart. With any cheaper diaper I worry that they might not last through a full 2-3 years until potty training or make it until the next kid. Out of all my cheaper diapers, these are the ones I worry about least.
When Pumpkin was a newborn, these didn’t work at all. Granted, he was only a little over 5 pounds at birth, but we weren’t able to use these diapers on him until 10 pounds. We started him out on the smallest settings and as you can see from the picture, the fit was a little awkward. Now that Pumpkin is closer to 15 pounds and still using the smallest settings, the fit is perfect. We have no thigh or waist gap nor do we have red marks once the diaper is removed. We also have never experienced any leaks with this diaper, even when wearing it at only 10 pounds. I also think they placed all of the snaps good distances apart, which allows for a good and comfortable fit every time. There are also snaps to prevent wing droop, YAY!
Ease of Use:
These are standard pocket diapers. The included inserts are easy to stuff into the diaper. The inside of the PUL isn’t sticky like some other diapers we’ve tried. There is a reasonable sized opening to stuff the diaper which my hand has no trouble fitting inside. Snaps are more difficult for others to use than hook and loop but both my husband and nanny manage with minimal complaining. See below for a picture of the diaper folded open.
The Love My pocket diaper have a great price point at $27.95 for a pack of six diapers with six microfiber inserts. That comes out to less than $5 for one complete diaper. At that price you only need to use each diaper about 18 times before it becomes cheaper than disposables! If you use this diaper from 10 pounds until about 30, it will easily pay for itself in money saved!
These diapers generally only come in solid colors, although from scouring Amazon it seems there are a couple different prints available. The prints do add about $2 per diaper though. The colors that come in the gender neutral pack are really nice. They are fairly unique so you probably won’t end up with too many of the same color, even when adding to an existing stash. My favorite colors would have to be the fluorescent yellow/green and the mint green. I wish “Love My” offered more packs in boy colors (they tend to lean heavily toward pinks) but the gender neutral pack is a nice compromise.
I really like these diapers. They are among the pocket diapers that I generally reach for first. The quality and fit are good and I like the bright colors. My little Pumpkin also offers no complaints when wearing these. I also like the fact that for cheap diapers, these are really high quality. Bottom Line: Yes, I would buy these again.
I did receive this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review but I would purchase these again at full price because I really do like them.
