I need a pocket diaper to show potential baby care givers. People in this small town are narrow-minded, ignorant, OK I will stop being mean.
This will be my first baby. I will be using pre-folds and covers until day care, but then I wanted to get the easiest option for others when they are watching my baby.
SO, my question is What should I get Pocket Diapers? Brands? other options?
I liked Sunbabies for my daycare diapers. They're extremely affordable (I got mine for 12 diapers=$60), cute, trim, and work well for everyday use. I just prestuffed them and it's no different to the caregiver than a disposable, other than putting it in a bag for you rather than the trash.
I did put liners in them too, so that the poop would be easier to dump off later (since they wouldn't do that part and sitting around drying out = stuck)
I currently send Sunbabies (Adair's hand-me-downs actually ) and a few other random WAHM pockets I've picked up. If you just want an example to show potential daycares, I can find a pocket diaper at the JBF consignment sale and get it to you. Or, I can send you a BumGenius pocket that needs to have the elastic replaced. I'm not a sewer so its not going to get replaced at my house .
You're going to start sending baby to daycare at about 8 weeks, right? Baby should be big enough to fit in OS pockets by then (especially if baby gets a whopping dose of your DH's genes ). Still, different pockets will be better for babies with different body types. So, you might want to get a few different kinds, test them on baby, and then invest in a bunch. You can also try websites like diaperswappers.com to look for used diapers. There are tons of pocket brands. Lots of WAHMs make really cute ones at a fair price.
