Baby Babu OS Pocket Diaper - Review

Outside of Baby Babu Diaper
 The awesome Baby Babu company sent Baby K and I an awesome purple diaper for review!!1  The Baby Babu diaper is a OS pocket diaper.  It has envelope openings make stuffing a lot easier.  There is also a snap on the diaper and on the inserts that keeps everything in place while stuffing and while putting the diaper on baby.  If you have read any of my other post (at all) you know that I am a pocket girl at heart :)  I will use other types and I like other types but a GOOD pocket diaper is always the 1st one I pull!!!  The Baby Babu diaper is among my 1st pulled!!  I LOVE the color and I love the envelope opening.  I do wish that the opening in the front was a little bigger.  I don't have huge hands and I find it a little tough the push the insert through.  I have to pull it from the other side.  Which is not a huge deal but different than what my brain wants to do :)  Baby Babu has a pretty large line of products to pick from.  On their website you can find OS pocket diapers, OS diaper covers, extra inserts, wet bags, and even BIODEGRADABLE DISPOSABLE DIAPERS!!!  They have you cover for just about everything :)  Also check them out on Facebook to keep up with all the latest information. 

Inside of Diaper

A Little About the Diaper (from the Manufacturer)

Baby Babu pocket cloth diapers have tons of features to make cloth diapering a breeze for you and your baby!

Our one-size pocket cloth diapers all come with the following features:

-TWO openings to stuff the inner pocket of the cloth diaper.  Why two openings you may wonder?  Two openings allow for the insert to simply self agitate out in the washing machine, preventing mommy or daddy from having to reach in and pull out a yucky, soiled insert.  With Baby Babu pocket cloth diapers, just dispose of any #2 in the toilet, toss in the washing machine and that’s it! We’ve eliminated the need for any additional dirty work.


Smallest rise setting
-Our adjustable snap button system, you now have a cloth diaper for life!  The button system allows for sizing from 8-35+ pounds, so you’ll never have to search for new diapers to fit your growing cutie.

-Each diaper wing has 3 button snaps to ensure a secure, but comfortable fit (most competitors have only 2 snaps on their diapers).  But wait, there’s more!  We’ve incorporated an extra gusset inside of the outer leg gusset to help prevent leakage for those little guys and girls that have a tendency towards the dreaded blow-outs or flood style pee pee incidents (moms and dads love this).

2nd Rise Setting
-Finally, each pocket cloth diaper comes with one 3 layer super absorbable insert and super soft, moisture wicking liner.

My Thoughts

Ease:  I love pocket diapers for how easy they are.  Other than some AIOs a pocket diaper is the easiest diaper out there.  All you have to do is stuff the pocket, snap the rise (if it is unsnapped, I leave mine snapped when washing), and snap it on baby.  The hardest part is stuffing the diaper, which isn't that hard to being with :)
Largest Rise Setting
Price:  The Baby Babu OS diaper is only $11.99!!  That is super cheap for a OS diaper.  I don't know many diapers that are that cheap and such great quality.  I have heard that shipping is expensive.  But when you hit $50 shipping is free.  And I bet if you keep your eye out they will eventually offer specials for free shipping (just MY thought!!!)
Baby K in Action
When and Why I use it:  Well I use it because I have to review it right!??!  NO!!!  I use it because I LOVE pocket diapers and because I LOVE the fit on Baby K and the color is adorable :)  I usually have this diaper in my diaper bag because it is so easy to use when out and about.  I can snap in the insert before we leave the house and I know it is still going to be in place when I pull it out of the diaper bag use!!!
Baby Babu Diaper on Baby K
Recommend:  If you don't know me by now then you are crazy :)  No just kidding.  But I don't put things on my blog that I do not use myself and would not recommend to my best friend.  For the price and the diaper you are getting I think you need at least 1 if not more of these diapers :)
Overall:  Overall I would give the Baby Babu OS Pocket Diaper a B.  I love the diaper but I really wish the front opening was a little bigger for easier stuffing.  Also I received 2 inserts (which I have only needed to use 1) and I wish that they snapped together for when you do need both.  All that said it is still one of my go to diapers for the diaper bag and when I want a cute purple diaper under a skirt :)
All opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.  The diaper was provided by Baby Babu for review.  No additional compensation was accepted for this review

Baby Babu Diapers is also giving away 1 diaper a month for the next 12 months on MY blog!!!  That means there will be 12 MORE diapers given away right here!!!  Thank you Baby Babu :)

  2. I love how these diapers fit on my little boys. One is extremely slender and the other is a little chunky. I even used these pockets at night with an added bamboo insert...no leaks yet!

  3. Thanks for the thorough review- I've never tried a diaper with dual pocket openings, but now I want to! It would be great to not have to touch an icky insert before putting it in the wash. :)

  4. I really love Baby Babu diapers and the double gussets!

  5. I love the idea of the double openings! Removing the inserts is possibly my least favorite part of parenting. :/

  6. That's quite a deal for a diaper with so many features. I've diaper diapers with simple look and features, but not for that price! nice!

  7. this seems like a good diaper to try, and it is a good price i like that it has the double openings for stuffing and the 3 buttons on each side it would be helpful for my daughter that is learning how to undo snaps.

  8. We just did our first run with a double gusset diaper last night. No leaks. And I love the double opening!

  9. The double opening sounds like a great feature - I am not looking forward to when my little one starts on solids and i have to deal with real poops.

  10. The double gussets and dual opening are probably my favourite things about this diaper. Will the insert still agitate out in an HE machine?

  11. this is a great price point for this diaper!!

  12. I like the idea of the double opening. My favorite diaper is the ALF – Alien Life Form Pocket Cloth Diaper.

  13. I really like the idea of a double opening so you can leave the inserts in too. Makes easy pocket cloth diapering even easier. :)

  14. We finally got our first Baby Babu diaper and we LOVE it! I would love to have the This Guy's Banana's diaper now! SO CUTE!

  15. I love that it has a snap to hold the insert in place. The only other diaper I've seen that is our GoGreen Champ, and it is really nice for during the day when baby is really active. I never have to worry about it shifting around:)

  21. Thanks for the review! We use Flip diapers, but I'm interested in learning more about other brands/types!

  22. I love those double gussets! They'll keep the poo well away from the legs!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I also love all of the bright colors and prints. The blue you reviewed is so cute!

  24. My favorite part is the double gussets

  25. SO cool that they have a biodegradable disposable option! Great to know for road trips. :-)

  26. Finally an affordable cloth diaper where you don't have to compromise!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like how it has snaps on the insert to keep things in place! Great idea

    ReplyDelete
  28. I didn't know that the inserts don't snap together. That is a good thing to point out for consideration. We don't need bunching inserts in our daughter's diapers. However, I still love this diaper because of where the back opening is (and that adorable Polka Polka Polka print!)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the double openings...makes it easy that you can just toss the whole diaper in the washer without pulling out the inserts.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love that it has two openings so the inserts can just agitate themselves out of the diaper in the washing machine! Every little bit of time saved counts!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love that it has so many features, gussets, snaps etc, for under $12. What a steal.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love how it has a tunnel design so the inserts can agitate out in the washing machine!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I also agree that the front opening is a bit small. That was the first thing I thought when I received mine as well. However still great quality for the price and love the extra gussets!
