Any cloth-diapering mamas know that while fluff is absolutely wonderful for the environment and better for baby's precious bottom, it can also be quite addictive! Especially with all of the adorable prints and fabrics available.I am guilty of basing an entire outfit around whichever diaper my babies happen to be wearing. Yes, I will choose clothing to match my fluff. Is this normal? Do I need a 12 Step Fluff Addiction Program? While cloth-diapering is addictive, it is also expensive! It seems that building the perfect stash can cost hundreds of dollars. (Or more!) Especially considering that not all cloth diapers are created equal. When I first discovered fluff, I made the mistake of ordering a ton of BabyLand diapers on EBay because they were very inexpensive. BIG mistake! I have found that these diapers fit oddly from the get go. While a baby is very small and the diapers are snapped down, they work well enough. But as a child grows, these diapers have horrible wing droop and leak like there's no tomorrow! Lesson learned. While I wanted to save money on my babies' diapers, I realized that sometimes cheaper does not mean better. Sure, there are some good, affordable options available, but the key is finding them. This, my friends, can be a messy process. (Figuratively AND literally!)
That's why I was so excited to learn about GoGreen Pocket Diapers! Not only are they adorable, coming in a wide variety of vibrant colors and fun prints, they are also super-affordable, too! Ranging in price from $9.99 for their classic diapers to $14.95 for their awesome King of Diapers, the Champ, you can create an entire stash without totally breaking the bank! GoGreen Pocket Diapers also offers great insert packages (let's face it, one can never have too many inserts!) as well as some adorable wet bags! Sure, some people are willing to pay $25-$30 per diaper, but GoGreen offers diapers for the rest of us.
But are they effective? Like I stated earlier, I have learned the hard way that some inexpensive diapers don't perform well at all. But this is not always the case, I am pleased to say. I recently received a GoGreen Pocket Diapers Champ for review. What is the Champ, and why is it special? Read on and find out!
About The Champ:
An innovative new pocket diaper! The Champ is a premium one-size pocket diaper with the convenient feature that you don't have to remove the soiled inserts - they come out by themselves in the wash! The Champ also boasts AI2 functionality. GoGreen Pocket Diapers have added an additional snap to both the diaper and the insert that allow the insert to be secured outside of the pocket! No slipping, no bunching. This snap also conveniently keeps the insert and diaper attached in the wash whether you choose to use the insert in or outside of the pocket - no more sorting laundry! The Champ features an extended sizing range, and truly will fit from birth to potty (and beyond!). The Dual Gussets™ barrier provides superior fit and containment - no leaks on even the smallest of babies.
I received the Champ in this fun Tripping 'Billy Print for my review. I love the fun, cartoon print featured on this diaper, as well as the bright and vibrant colors! Having a boy and a girl in cloth, this is a great unisex choice! The fabric used in this diaper is also silky smooth to the touch, and has a slight shine to it which I really like.
Aside from the oh-so-adorable appearance of the Champ, I immediately noticed some other features that set it apart from your standard pocket diaper! For one, I love the color coded snaps. These make it so easy to size, even for non-experienced diaper changers, like babysitters and grandparents. Many of my family and friends do not have any experience with modern cloth diapers, and the Champ offers an incredibly easy to use solution for weekend trips or even daycare!
The Champ also features 4 rows of snaps to further customize the size to meet the needs of your baby. This means that the Champ offers the perfect fit for babies from birth all the way to potty training! This great diaper snaps down to a teensy tiny diaper for the tiniest of bums and expands to fit active toddlers. Yes, the Champ grows with your baby, eliminating the need to purchase expensive, sized diapers. What's not to love about that?!
Another thing I really like about the new and improved Champ pocket diaper is the ability to use it as an AI2. (All-In-Two) The Champ offers an extra snap on both the diaper and the insert so you can snap the insert directly onto the interior of the diaper. This eliminates bunching and shifting, and also makes laundering the Champ a breeze! You can simply throw the Champ into the wash with the insert snapped in, whether stuffed into the pocket or used as an AI2. The insert stays with the diaper, and will even agitate out of the pocket on its own in the wash. What does this mean for you? No more reaching into the soiled pocket to remove an insert before washing! I have gotten poop on my hands more times than I care to think about removing inserts. Yuck! There is also no need to sort through all your fluff to find the coordinating insert. BIG plus in my household, since with 2 babies, we have a LOT of diapers!
Now that I have covered all of the great features of the GoGreen Pocket Diapers Champ, I want to talk about the overall effectiveness of this product. With all of these great innovations and tiny price tag, I'm sure you're all wondering the same thing: Does it WORK? YES! This diaper is fantastic! I have used it several times on both of my babies, both overnight and during the day. I was able to easily customize the fit for both children. The diaper fit perfectly on my 6 month old son AND my 18 month old daughter.
During the day time, I like using this diaper as an AI2. It is very convenient and makes diaper changes quick and relatively painless. (Unless Xander pooped. He has the worst smelling poo I have ever come across!) I simply remove the dirty diaper, spray it if necessary, and throw it into my diaper pail or wet bag. No special care or unstuffing necessary! I can get back to playing with and loving on my babies in no time flat!
For overnight use, I like using this as a pocket diaper. I double stuff it with 2 inserts, and it keeps my babies' PJ's dry. I have not experienced a single leak with the Champ. I love the double leg gussets, because they create a bulletproof barrier for even the messiest of baby explosions. My son wakes up every morning without fail with a poopy diaper. Often times, it has migrated down his thighs and even up his back. Eww! With the Champ's double leg gussets, this has not been the case. All of his often epic messes have remained right where they belong: Inside of his diaper! GoGreen definitely scores some major brownie points from me here!
Here are some photos of the Champ:
Would I recommend the GoGreen Pocket Diapers Champ to experienced and novice cloth-diapering moms alike? You bet I would! These diapers offer fabulous protection during day as well as night, and they won't break the bank! The Champ is also super-versatile and outperforms many much more expensive brands of cloth diapers.
Not to mention, aside from the superior performance of this diaper, GoGreen Pocket Diapers are CUTE! Come on...Admit it...You want an effective diaper that's absolutely adorable, too. In the case of fluff, looks DO matter! And GoGreen Pocket Diapers offers some of the cutest designs around. With prints and colors like the Shiny Hiney Champ, the Moo Champ, The Raspberry Cocoa Champ and the sleek Champ Noir, you simply can't go wrong!
