When talking about pocket diapers, one of the cons I listed was price. The average price for a (one size) pocket diaper is $20. This really adds up, even if they are awesome and are used a lot. This was something Leah, the mama behind GoGreen Pocket Diapers noticed too. She had three little ones in diapers when they made the switch to cloth. Her family liked how pocket diapers worked for them, but it was pricey (although still cheaper than disposables) to buy a pocket stash to accommodate three kids! It became her mission to provide quality, affordable pocket diapers.
And, we're glad she's passionate about it! GoGreen's reusable diapers range in price from $9.99 to $14.95 and they offer accessories as well. I have been wanting to try GoGreen and have entered so many giveaways for them. I really should have just gone ahead and bought one! And they have some of the cutest prints, seriously. I love the names too – so fun. (Not too long ago, I remember putting in a suggestion when the fans got a chance to try and name Techno Tushie!)
So what's the deal with The Champ?
The Champ is a one size pocket diaper with perks. There are openings at each end making it easier to stuff and so it will unstuff itself in the wash. That's right! No need to touch the insert. You can also snap one end of the insert so it stays connected during your laundry routine. You can also lay the insert on top of the liner if you choose. The lining is soft suedecloth and the insert has 3 layers of microfiber.
There more sizing options than their regular diaper as well: 4 rise settings and two rows of snaps along the waist with 10 different snapping points. They also have Dual Gussets™ to fit nicely around the thighs and keep the mess inside.
The Champ 2 Improvements
I never got to experience the original Champ, but here are the improvements and added features:
- Hip snaps
- Front pocket cover made with PUL to prevent wicking
- Back pocket has a cover flap
I wasn't sure what print I was getting, I just said I'd like girlie or neutral. I was super excited to receive Buns ‘n Roses to review! It is one of my favorites (I also love the Giraffe print and Twinkle print!) and what I was hoping to get.
Rissa wanted to try it on while I tried getting pre-laundry pictures!
This is a nice looking diaper. The outer shell is waterproof, but fuzzy. The pattern is very cute for little girls. (Brian said it looked like a gramma print – I decided he won't be picking out any fluff prints anytime soon…) It didn't look big or small. It looked comparable in size to our other pocket diapers. The insert looked wider than I thought would fit in the pocket tunnel, but I had no issues stuffing it. I like the fuzzy shell – it adds variety!
It fits Rissa very well. Shes long and skinny, but the inner gussets are snug to her little thighs. The hip snaps help with adjusting the fit and keeping the diaper on. Even with fastening the waist in the smaller settings, there's extra room in there. We're on the second (middle) rise setting.
We haven't had it super long, but we've tried it out a few times. Rissa wore it through breakfast and a nearly 2 hour nap without any leaks! I thought that was good especially since the insert was washed less than 5 times. The suedecloth liner is not something I'm used to. It feels almost like jersey material to me – smooth and shiny. It's soft on the side for baby's skin. It seemed to keep her fairly dry, which is good, and no fuzzies stuck to her like some of the microfleece liners do to her.
While I like that it unstuffs itself and I can leave the insert snapped to the shell, that doesn't solve my sorting! I like to hang my shells to dry to give them longer life. I don't like to hang the inserts (my line is in the basement) so those go in the dryer. They do dry within just one dryer cycle for me though. The shell dries within that time and the outside stays soft and fuzzy!
I think I need more! It's definitely a quality diaper for less! I just wish they came with two inserts.
