Today we bring you another affordable choice for pocket lovers – Lovely Pocket Diapers! LPD really does have affordable prices. The regular pocket diapers sell for about $7-$7.50 each. The new collection, The Rave costs $12-$12.50 each. Additional inserts are reasonable priced too – about $3 each. Melissa, the mama behind LPD, became a first time mama just last Thanksgiving! (Yay for fall babies!) She started off using prefolds and researched cloth diapers, trying to find a more affordable option. (We have a theme today!) I'm actually quite impressed with how quickly she's gotten her business up and going in such a short amount of time!
They also give back to the community. While these diapers are some of the lowest costing ones I've seen, they donate at least 10% of their supply to families in need. They also provide a way for you to donate their diapers with the Share the Love program.
Melissa sent me a pretty pink diaper from her new Rave collection. The Rave line offers more adjustability (4 rise settings), two rows of waist snaps, and double leg gussets. The PUL outer keeps everything in. The pocket lining is microsuede, which is nice and soft. Both diaper styles come with one triple layer microfiber insert. Additional inserts are for sale and bamboo is an option as well.
Looks & Usability
One of the things I was surprised by was how similar it looked to another diaper, but it still had it's differences. The pocket was easy to stuff, but the back cover kept it in too well. I like to try and shake them out without toughing, if possible. The opening is in the back and the cover made it tougher for me to shake it out. I didn't try double stuffing for overnight. We did use this diaper while out of town and for naps. We haven't experienced any leaks! Rissa did test it out by making a mess in it – everything stayed inside!
I do like how it fits Rissa. It's pretty trim on her too. It wasn't hanging all out of her onesie or giving her a bigger than usual fluffy butt. The gusset is snug to her skinny thighs. We're on the second rise setting with the waist about as small as I can go. She could use it tighter around the waist, but then it starts getting too tight across the tops of her thighs. Most of our waist tabs are angled or rounded, but I like the squared look of the tabs.
Other than needing to help pull the insert out, laundry is fine. The insert cleans well and drys in one dryer cycle. The shell dries quick on the line.
This is an affordable way to expand my stash without sacrificing quality. I do wish they came with two inserts like most major brand pocket diapers. I'm always looking for unique prints too.
