The 2G pocket diapers come in 14 different colors, plus an array of prints and other fun things in the “custom” section of Knickernappies’ website. The most unique thing about their diapers is that they come with elastic in both the front and the back and on both sides of the back material where the pocket it, keeping messes in better while providing a snug fit. Like most pocket diapers, a fleece is used as the inner layer and a PUL for the outer layer. This allows for liquids to be wicked to the inside of the diaper (where the liner is), keeping baby’s skin dry.
One thing that I really like about Knickernappies diapers is the fact that they’re side snapping. I’ve only used one other diaper with this and must say that I prefer it over front snapping diapers. It just looks cuter to me and relieves the problem of droopy flaps. Knickernappies also offers a one-year guarantee on both their snaps and elastic, so you won’t need to worry about any craftsmanship problems as your baby grows! Here’s what they have to say about their front snapping:
Side snaps give this diaper a very smooth fit across the tummy. No more poofing or drooping! In addition, side snaps are great for curious toddlers who have mastered aplix or front-snapping diapers!
Knickernappies also sent me a LoopyDo insert to use with the pocket diaper. Made of two layers of thirsty hemp french terry plus two layers of ultra-thick white microfiber, the insert is prewashed and ready to absorb fluid. It’s a pretty flat insert, and is sewn into a loop which helps it dry just as fast as anything else in the dryer (if you’ve used hemp before, you know that it usually takes longer to dry). The insert is easy to use, absorbs a lot, and we also found that it fits into all of our other pocket diapers (of comparable size) with no problems. The LoopyDo 2G Prewashed Insert is actually rated #1 for all inserts on Diaper Pin and can be purchased from Knickernappies’ website for $7.49.
