My first thought when Baby Babu sent me their one size pocket diaper to test out was that it would be a perfect diaper to go with a honey bee Halloween costume.
It’s definitely cute enough to be worn enough every day, but seriously, wouldn’t it complete a bee costume perfectly? Or maybe a referee costume. Don’t worry, if you’re not into bright, bold stripes, they have lots of other patterns and prints available.

The Baby Babu pocket diaper has a few features I really love.
The double leg gussets are the biggest seller for me, because they help contain messes really well. Since Levi is a toddler and has more solid stools, that isn’t as big of a deal as it used to be, but I remember EBF poo all too well, and if I ever have another one, I’m making sure all my dipes have the double gussets.
For daytime use, we didn’t have any issues. I don’t bother to snap in my inserts – I don’t get the point. I’ve never had problems with inserts bunching up inside the diaper, BUT I also only use one insert for Levi. I think it would be beneficial to help keep everything in place if I was using two inserts or stuffing an extra soaker in.
Like most microfiber diapers, the Baby Babu just didn’t cut it for us at night. Levi soaked through and woke up wet. No issues with naptime, though.
Ease of Use:
You guys know I’m not a fan of the elastic back (I prefer the envelope style). Since this has openings on both sides (both elastic AND envelope), I was still able to shake out my wet insert without touching it. (Don’t forget: I don’t snap my inserts. If you snap your insert, you will have to touch it to unsnap it).
The Baby Babu had great stitching, the PUL was good quality, and there are plenty of snaps so that you are able to get a good fit on your child. I think it’s a very well-made diaper for the price ($11.99).
