Lovely Pocket Diapers is a web-store, owned and operated by Melissa, that features one size classic pocket diapers (single opening), ‘Rave’ pocket diapers (double opening), diaper covers, and newborn all-in-one’s. Melissa started her own cloth diaper journey in 2010 with her daughter and soon found one size pocket diapers. Being frugally minded, she couldn’t see spending $15-$20 on a diaper, so she researched until she found a more affordable option. Soon thereafter, she decided to help other Mom’s cloth diaper without breaking the bank, and Lovely Pocket Diapers was born.
Melissa recently sent me a Giraffe Rave diaper for review. The Giraffe Rave pocket diaper is a one size diaper with a minky outer layer. It has double row waist snaps, double pocket openings, inner leg gussets, and comes with a triple layer microfiber insert.
The Rave diapers are designed to fit approximately 7-40lbs.
We started using the Giraffe Rave diaper around 9lbs. Because it doesn’t have crossover snaps on the wings, and at the time Little Miss had a tiny waist/hip area, we couldn’t use it at a lower weight. At 9lb, it fit perfectly on the smallest setting.
We have plenty of growing room left a nearly 14lbs.
We’ve not had any leaks with this diaper and it launders well. The only (minor) drawback of it is that the back pocket elastic is super tight so it kind of puckers, so we have to be careful to make sure that the microfiber insert isn’t exposed next to baby’s skin. I’m certain that the tightness of the back elastic is what keeps it from leaking, so it isn’t a big deal, we just have to be careful with it.
You really can’t beat the prices of Lovely Pocket Diapers! Solid classic diapers are just $7, while print classics are $7.50. Solid Rave diapers are $12 and print Rave’s are $12.50. Covers are just $6.75 each (insert not included with covers).
