Pocket Cloth Diapers are Still an Option When Cloth Diapering on a Budget

Pocket Cloth DiapersAll in One Cloth DiapersRemember our breakdown of cloth diapering systems that I wrote a few days ago?  I shared that it is possible to cloth diaper, even on the strictest of budgets.  And that you even still have options!

Now, you don't have to be on a budget to buy these cloth diapers – obviously.  But if you are, imported diapers might just be a good option for your family.  First, let's get all this imported talk out of the way so we can focus on the adorable black diaper {that we were sent free for review} that you see above from Comfy Rumps!

There are quite a few different companies that sell cloth diaper made in other countries – a lot being from China.  This is where the term "China Cheapies" comes from – if you've heard it thrown around.  A company like Comfy Rumps provides these imported pocket cloth diapers for sale in the US and Canada, giving their customers a great selection of affordable diapers, personal customer service, and diaper warranties.

So, why are China imported diapers sometimes shunned?

Honestly – I have no clue.  Sure, I love to support USA made just as much as the next person, BUT I dare you to look at your clothing labels.  Let's step back and look at cloth diapers the same way we look at our clothes.

We've never had a black diaper in our stash, so I was ecstatic that Christie sent along a black Double Gusset Comfy Rumps cloth diaper.  I was even more ecstatic when I realized that this black beauty was an All-in-One!  I've been cloth diapering for over 3 years people, I'm lazy about stuffing pockets.  Well, I still stuff this one with an extra hemp insert, but you get my drift!

One row of snaps in this One Size AIO, with a hip snap on the side, gets a great fit on Moreaya on the next to largest setting.  It's one of the first diapers that I reach for when it's clean because it fits her so trimly – even with that extra hemp insert stuffed in.

We were also sent this cute print in a Comfy Rumps Bamboo Pocket Cloth Diaper.  The diaper fits almost identical to the Double Gusset black diaper.  This is a pocket style diaper that comes with a Bamboo insert.  Bamboo is a bit more absorbent than microfiber – similar to hemp – and is a natural fiber.  Some babies are allergic to the fleece lined diapers and synthetic microfiber, so bamboo is a great option.

I line dry my covers, so this cover often times gets a bit stiff.  I also prefer a more stay dry inner as the bamboo stays a little more moist.  Laying a reusable fleece liner on top takes care of this issue though!

Although some would argue that prefolds, flats, and covers aren't hard – some families tend to shy away from that system.  Comfy Rumps is offering cloth diapers to families that are affordable and in my honest opinion, well-made diapers.  We've actually had both of these in our stash for over a month now and they are performing just as well as their competitors {in our stash}!

No matter how you choose to diaper your child, it's your choice.  You'll save tons of money in the long run, compared to disposables!

    I just read your article. I bought a couple comfy rumps when I was pregannt with my 4th. I have decided to go ahead and use them and was trying to buy some more but I cannot seem to get online with them. Is comfyrumps still around?

    I am excited about cloth diapering and my daughter-in-law said she would give it a try if she received them as a shower or baby gift. So I have been entering giveaways hoping to win some for her. I am grateful for your review because if she does decide to use cloth diapers, she would need some less expensive diapers and liners. The Comfy Rumps might be a good choice.

  3. I will most definitely be checking these out once we get moved! I entered the giveaway also, so thank you so much for the giveaway :) I am just cloth diapering for the first time on my 4 month old daughter, who will also be our last child, and I gotta say, they're addictive :p I don't have a favorite brand, but my favorite type is definitely all in ones! My husband says so also! 

  4. We bought some of them to add to our homemade stash since we were going to have two in diapers.  They did work very well for several months, but most of them delaminated quickly and began to leak after that.  I have about eight others that did not delaminate, but are leaking after being stripped.  So, we use them for swim diapers now.  They really were a life saver though when I had a newborn and a toddler in diapers.  I now have two toddlers in diapers and we are back to a fully handmade stash, but those diapers made it possible for us to cloth diaper in the days of a million NB changes.

    Personally, I am tired of people bashing others for buying cheapies. 

    Thank you for pointing out the fact that much of the material items that we own come from a foreign country. One shouldn't go around and boast about purchasing "USA, all the way!" when they are wearing diamond jewelry (a large majority of our diamonds come from other countries, which have had unsafe mining practices and/or the stones have profited warfare…"blood diamond" ring a bell?) and commenting from their imported phones and computers. It is darn near impossible to avoid buying a product that is entirely USA made too. Even though some things are assembled in the US, doesn't mean that the materials used to make it are from the US too. Own a US made SoftBum diaper with the hemp insert, take a look at the inserts tag…Sorry to step on my soap box…

    I will be honest, even though I constant rave about how awesome my Thirsties are and how they provide jobs to the people of our country (many of which get to work from home), the stash of Alvas I bought when our "surprise" 2nd child came along. I did the math, and 3 Alvas were cheaper than a USA made cover with 3 prefolds – at that time, I got a pretty good deal on eBaby. Those diapers are still in rotation abd are over 3 years old and, like you said, work just as well (if not better) as our name brand diapers.

    When a friend or stranger discusses how excited they are to begin the cloth diapering journey, my first response wouldn't be "which brands or you plan on using (and why not USA made)?". Instead, I would commend them for choosing to cloth diaper.

    Thank you for your post! Unlike some of the other china cheapie posts I have read, I did not feel like less of a person for reading it because I choose to buy those diapers on eBay :-)

  6. Thanks for addressing the issue of diapers from China in such a straightforward and sensible manner. I'm not sure, either, why there tends to be an uproar about them. What's important for USA diapers is the same for China diapers: look for quality and a seller that will stand by the product. 

    I love how you summed this post up: ""No matter how you choose to diaper your child, it's your choice."
