We have been cloth diapering for about 16 months using Alva pockets. I used and abused mine by frequently drying on high heat and the elastic was shot. I ordered these after looking around for an affordable replacement. I love how they fit! The hip snaps are configured differently than Alvas and fit my daughter much better. They are softer too. My daughter is a heavy wetter so I use a doubler in them but have yet to have a leak and can even use them overnight which I could never do with my other pockets (was using fitteds under wool which is incredibly bulky). I will update if I have any issues with wear and tear over time but I truly think that if you take care of them they will hold up great. I find myself washing diapers of none of these are available because I strongly prefer them.
I like these diapers a lot. The pocket really wicks moisture away from baby's skin and feels dry even when the insert is really wet. I love that the insert snaps in place. The colored snaps are very useful. However, I have two complaints: 1) I would not consider these birth to toddler. My average size baby (born 7 pounds 8 ounces) would never have fit into these right away. I had to wait until he was 12 pounds before they fit well. 2) the snap on the insert broke on two of them. I learned quickly to take great care in unsnapping the insert from the pocket. Still worth the purchase and deserving of a 4 star review.
I was confused when ordering and thought they were the Rainbow BB diaper covers I used years ago with my first child. Apparently Rainbow BB no longer exists. They covers are mostly very functional as a pocket diaper, but I prefer a PUL shell that can be wiped clean for repeated use. We do like the colored snaps when it comes to teaching family members/friends how to use cloth diapers, however some of the paler colors are not truly water proof and leak through on to clothes.
As a new mommy, deciding which cloth diapers to go with was very overwhelming. A friend suggested I try these rainbow diapers and I absolutely love them. I like to keep things simple and these diapers are just that. I love the inserts. They are thick and absorbent but not bulky. The color coded snaps are Great making it very easy. The double opening makes the stuffing much easier. A few other things I like are the extra hip snaps and the inside snap to keep the inserts in place. I started using these diapers when my son was about 9 lbs and had no leaks. (I would have used them earlier but had not purchased them yet). Highly recommend these, the best bang for your buck!!
I liked the colored snap idea for family changing diapers. But after a month or so of usage and washing as directed the snaps have started to fall out. When I noticed it happened to one I reported it to the company. They asked for a picture and so I started to look at all the diapers even though only one fell out all the way more where starting to follow suit on others. I am looking into different diapers these were not worth my time and money. Make sure you do very good research before buying your diapers. I learned a lot just googleing cloth diapers.
