Best Pocket Cloth Diaper | BabyList Best Pocket Cloth Diaper | BabyList

Rumparooz Cloth Pocket Diaper is picking up another nomination, this time from BabyList for the Best Pocket Cloth Diaper because of its ability to customize your child’s absorbency to exactly the level that fits their unique needs. Each diaper comes with a “6R Soaker” that is 2 inserts which can be used together or separately, with six different ways to configure them. They have the ability to be mixed and matched with additional hemp and bamboo versions, sold separately, for older babies and heavy wetters. Complete with the leak protection technology of patented double inner gussets located along each leg and the back, blowouts are virtually impossible. 

“I love their absorbency and protection against leaks. Also, I’d be lost if I couldn’t use my dryer and that’s okay with this brand. I love knowing I helped the environment and my kid’s tush.”

- BabyList Parent, Lindsey

TIP + TRICK: A con mentioned is the need to insert the liners (stuffing diapers) into the diaper can be an annoying task. However, without the versatility of a pocket you are bootstrapped to the amount of absorbency already sewn into the diaper (All-In-One), which is usually too little for older babies (more frequent diaper changes), and too bulky for smaller babies (one size AIO’s fit best around 12+ pounds rather than at birth.)

Best Cloth Diaper for Newborns | RealDiapers Best Cloth Diaper for Newborns | RealDiapers

Rumparooz One Size Pocket Cloth Diaper is getting a nomination in the best newborn diapers category from for the infant/newborn setting. It's true! We have one of only legit birth to potty training one size diapers on the market. Our smallest size on the Rumparooz fits newborns at 6 lbs. The leg elastic and leg holes are tiny enough to wrap around just 2 fingers.

While finding the best cloth diaper for your newborn can seem overwhelming but with a Rumparooz all points are checked off. Stand out features from RealDiapers:

  • Customizable sizes and fits based on size and gender
  • Only require one pre-wash before using
  • Parts of the diaper are U.S.A. manufactured
  • Bright and colorful designs and patterns
  • Ultra soft, no-pill micro-chamois fabric

"Rumparooz diapers are slightly more expensive than other pocket or all-in-one diapers. However, parents will only need to purchase one set, making them the best newborn cloth diaper for parents who want a one-and-done system."


Best Pocket Cloth Diaper | The Bump Best Pocket Cloth Diaper | The Bump

Winning for the ability to not only easily adjust the size of the diaper with snaps but with absorbency. The Rumparooz features a pocket where the 6R soaker is inserted to add the desired absorbency to the cloth diaper. As stated by The Bump a stand out feature is the patented double gussets or "turbo-charged hem" to keep blowouts contained inside the diaper! A win win for parents. Kanga Care brand cloth diapers are the original and only cloth diapers uniquely designed with the patented leak protection technology of dual inner gussets. The inside of each diaper is designed with 2 gentle inner gussets. Creating no chance of escape from the messiest of messes with a double barrier that channels each leg.

What They Liked:

  • Snaps make for easy modifications.
  • Double inner-leg gussets
  • Inner microchamois is not only blanket-like in softness—it does a stellar job of wicking rash-causing moisture away from baby’s bum.
  • Ability to up the absorbency for babies who are heavy wetters.

Rumparooz for the win again! This time had some great feedback and mentioned that some reviewers found the fit was on the smaller side. So although the Rumparooz remains the best pocket diaper out there, the conclusion mentions of their top pick is that the Rumparooz may not work best for larger babies.

First, we must say that the Rumparooz is a true one size diaper, fitting up to 35-40 lbs. The pattern was designed using the owners very own children as models, who were very chubby babies. The chubbiest was 27 lbs at 6 months old. For reference, he was on the size medium at those stats. In the beginning the Rumparooz were actually known as the cloth diapers FOR chubby babies!

The key to making sure a diaper doesn’t seem “too small”, too soon, is making sure it is fit properly and on the correct rise for babies size. Sizing up a rise too soon can cause a diaper to feel too small. Confusing? We have a spectacular customer service team that is always ready and waiting to help with any fit and function needs and questions any customer may have. Reach out via email:! No customer ever needs to wonder if they are doing it right or wrong, we are here to help!

What They Liked:

  • Provide multiple levels of protection
  • Four size settings
  • Multiple patterns

Best Cloth Diapers of 2022 | Mommyhood101 Best Cloth Diapers of 2022 | Mommyhood101

Rumparooz One Size Cloth Diapers made the top 5 list for 2022. As many stated above the ability to customize absorbency and grow with your little one were stand out features.

However it is mentioned that the microchamois held a smell and was too bulky causing the diaper to be too hot for summer days. If your diaper or any product from Kanga Care is holding a smell please reach out to our customer care team, who are well trained and can help resolve the issue. If cared for properly with our thoroughly tested and recommended selection of approved detergents none of the diapers should ever smell after being washed. Odor means there is filth not getting cleaned out of the diaper or there is rescue starting to buildup.

Rumparooz with microchamois is about 1/3 of the thickness of diaper fleece used by other brands and offers hypoallergenic properties as well as non-irritating because it is a no-pill material. Both the shell of the Rumparooz and inner microchamois are breathable and microporous,allowing vapor through but not moisture:

  • Greatly reduces the warmth in the diaper area compared to plastic disposable diapers.
  • Makes the Rumparooz both comfortable for baby and optimal for all climates, temperatures and seasons.

What They Liked:

  • Great absorbency,
  • Good versatility to span different sizes and ages of babies,
  • Fantastic job preventing blow-outs.

Is it fair to say that we can all start to agree that Kanga Care Rumparooz are hands down the best cloth diaper? We are definitely seeing a trend here. A con you may find when using a pocket diaper is the stuffing of a pocket diaper. But, this can easily be out weighed by the ability to customize your Rumparooz throughout your cloth diapering journey to the exact size and absorbency your child needs. No need to go buy another diaper to boost absorbency or go up in size as your child grows. 

What They Liked:

  • Variety of absorbent inserts (microfiber, bamboo, or hemp)
  • One Size fit that adjusts to fit as your baby grows
  • The snap system allows for easy size modification
  • Soft double inner-leg gussets that prevent leaks without causing rash or irritation.
  • The outer waterproof cover layer is biodegradable, and comes in more than 50 colors and prints.

Now you may be wondering. Wouldn't all pocket diaper function properly and that answer is no. It is important that the cloth diaper has a balance between supreme absorbency and a good fit to prevent leaks. 

Rumparooz OBV feature a plush interior of organic bamboo velour. Paired with bamboo 6R soakers that are inserted into the pocket are an extremely absorbent combination. Great as a nap time or nighttime solution for peaceful sleep.

What They Liked:

  • The settings are adjustable for larger babies.
  • The bamboo soaker increases absorption.
  • The diaper only needs to be washed once for prep.
  • You can use the newborn insert for extra absorbency.
  • It has a “poop scoop” ridge at the back for additional protection against blowouts.
