Baby Monkeys Pocket Diaper and Flat

Last, but certainly not least in my Flats Challenge review series is a WAHM shop called Baby Monkeys. Tibeca, the owner and creator of Baby Monkeys sent me one of her Bamboo Baby Loop Terry Flats and also one of her adorable pocket diapers to review.

The Bamboo Loop Terry Flats are made of a single layer of fabric that is serged on the edges. You can pick your serging color, and I chose the Blueberry Cobbler color for mine. They come in three sizes that you can choose from: Newborn (25" x 25"), Infant (28"x28"), and Toddler (30"x30"). The fabric has one smooth flat side and one looped side, and I found that both held a Snappi very well. The flat is really stretchy, which I love for getting a nice snug fit on Ava!

I have the flat in an Origami fold in the picture above. You can see what a great fit we got with this flat! The tan serging you see is just a doubler since Ava was wearing this for a nap. We found that this flat had really great absorbency for Ava and it handwashed very well during the challenge.

This is the adorable pocket diaper that I was sent to review! It is a one size side snapping pocket diaper with a cute rainbow applique on the back.

On the inside of the diaper there are two pocket openings, one on each end. This makes it really easy to stuff and most of the time the inserts agitate out in my washer! The white that you can see is suedecloth, and the blue is PUL.

The picture above shows the pocket snapped to the smallest rise and waist settings. I can tell that this would fit a small baby really nicely. The front even has a little bit of a dip to it that would keep the diaper away from the cord on a newborn. The size range for these pockets is about 10-32 pounds.

 I added this picture to highlight the awesome stitching on the fold over elastic. I thought that all the stitching on this diaper was really nicely done, and the zig zag stitch on the elastic looks really cool.

I took all of the on the bum pictures with the flat pad folded inside the pocket. I know it looks bulky, but I wanted to be able to show just how roomy this pocket is. I can even stuff it enough to use it at night! For normal daytime use, Tibeca offers bamboo terry or zorb inserts to go with her pocket diapers.  I didn't have one of hers to review, so I used some that I had on hand. With a smaller insert I take the rise up one more snap setting and get a nice trim fit.

Look at that fluffy bum! I love that this is a great stay dry night time option for us. It has been really hard for us to find pockets that can fit the amount of absorbency that Ava needs at night.

We got a great fit with this diaper. The fold over elastic keeps everything really snug without any gaps, so we didn't have any leaks. I just love anything baby blue so the color is perfect for me and the rainbow applique is so awesome! Also, since there is elastic on the front for the tummy it works great for my skinny tummy sleeper. This was one of the first diapers in a while that fit Ava's skinny waist really well without squishing her chubby legs.
