Pocket Cloth Diapers

Pocket Cloth Diapers are, by far, the most popular type of modern cloth diaper on the market {see all the Pros below}. A Pocket Diaper is a cloth diaper comprised of two different parts, a Waterproof Cover/Shell and an Insert.  The Shell or outside of the diaper has some type of opening, “pocket”, where the insert can be “stuffed”. Pocket Diapers come in a ton of varieties and can be either Sized or One-Size diapers.  They also can come in either Aplix or Snap closures and are usually very easy for most people to use. Pocket Diapers aren’t considered an AI2 because most of the time their inserts are made of microfiber, which is a material that cannot be put directly against baby’s skin.  It has to be under a safe material, like a microfleece {which is usually what the Shell is made of on the inside}.


  • Customizable!  This is what makes Pocket Diapers stand out above All-in-One’s.  You can “stuff” your diaper with any type of insert, and however many inserts, that you want/need.
  • Easy.  Most Pocket Diapers are very simple to use and are the modern cloth diaper.
  • Dry faster than AIO’s because they are in two parts.


  • Pockets can tend to be a bit more expensive than other types of cloth diapers.
  • You have to stuff them.  This takes time after every washing.
  • Most Pockets have to be “un-stuffed” before washing which can be a bit messy sometimes.
