What are Pocket Diapers?

That’s a good question! The answer is pocket diapers are diapers with a pocket, and Kanga Care makes them! No, no, the pocket is not for the baby’s cell phone; that phase will come way too soon, but not just yet. These are cloth diapers that have a pocket for inserting a soaker pad which increases the absorbency of the diaper. This means you can use the same diaper for daytime, when you can change more frequently, or overnight when baby sleeps longer – yes, really, they will indeed sleep longer at night after the first few months.

Kanga Care Cloth Diapers

Rumparooz Cloth Diapers are a Kanga Care brand based out of Littleton, Colorado. They have a pocket to insert soakers in and are available in a wonderful variety of colors and prints. We also make EcoPosh One Size Fitted Pocket Diapers which are made from recycled water bottles, bamboo and organic cotton. They come in four gentle colors, and you can use the Rumparooz diaper covers which come in a selection of vibrant colors and prints. Both diapers are adjustable from newborn to over 35 lbs. For most babies, this means you can use the same diapers until they are potty trained. Either one will save your family around $300 over sized cloth diapers. All our Kanga Care pocket diapers have our patented double inner gussets, which prevent leakage, and our ingenious system of snaps, which allows the diaper to adjust to baby’s size as they grow. Our newborn and preemie diapers also have a snap down feature for easy cord care.

Why Have Pockets?

Why pocket diapers? Why not just make the diapers heavier and more absorbent? There are a couple of reasons. First of all, once your baby becomes more active, you will want to have a lighter, less bulky diaper so that he or she can move more easily when they are crawling or toddling. The second reason is drying time; a lighter diaper and separate soaker will wash more thoroughly and dry faster than a bulky diaper. By having a pocket that can accommodate a soaker to make it more absorbent, the diaper is versatile and can be used both day and night, with no need to have two separate stacks of diapers. Deciding how to diaper your baby is one of the most important decisions you will make, right along with choosing a car seat and a crib. People are becoming aware of the problems with disposable diapers, both for the health and comfort of the baby and for the good of the environment. Kanga Care is proud to help by offering a fine line of cloth diapers, accessories, and pocket diapers.
