A BabyKicks Review by Melissa!

1. Which BabyKicks products have you used?

I have used the Baby Kicks Bumboo pocket diaper, one size with green snaps only with the insert it came with. I have also used 3 BabyKicks medium sized hemp doublers.

2. How long have you been using them?

I have been using the Bumboo Pocket Diaper since I purchased it Earth Day, about one to two times a week (wash every 3-4 days for diapers). I have used the Baby Kicks hemp medium doublers for maybe a year?? Unsure, about a year.

3. Which products are your favorite and why?

I love the hemp doublers because they are contoured and so can be used for some of those contoured diapers or smaller diapers (medium ones fit well in the smart sleeve of a smartipants diaper if you don’t buy the insert that goes well with the diaper). I also like that they are pretty absorbent and get my daughter through the night without leaks! Even though they’re washed a couple times a week for a year the tags and fabric have not worn out, which I love since when tags wear out it’s hard to tell which diaper they go to if you have a lot of different diapers (of which I do!) even though these do stand out from the microfiber and other hemp inserts, still nice.

4. Would you recommend this diaper to a friend?

Not sure if I’d recommend this diaper at this time. It was my first side snapping diaper and it is a bit odd for me to put on, and even though my daughter is on the last size of most every diaper, took me a while to figure out that she’s on a medium size in this diaper, hence why I got leaks. I do like the fleece on the legs to make them soft. It does seem a bit stiff on the top waist part, wish it was not as stiff or softer, contoured different or something. I am thinking I might like this diaper a bit more after using side snaps for a while and when dd gets older I heard side snaps are better so she doesn’t take the diaper off and can use it as a pull up when she gets potty trained. I also saw the multi colored snaps, which would be a lot nicer than the all green snaps I have.

5. Are you excited for the new colors coming out or are you a fan of the plain white?

I would very much love some nicer colors!

6. Have you ever tried the Bumboo Pocket overnight? If so, how well do you feel like it did?

I have not tried this diaper over night.

7. Is there anything you wished BabyKicks offered?

How about a bamboo insert??

8. Are there any products you want to try but haven’t yet?

I’d have to see what else they offer besides the hemp doublers and the bumboo pocket diaper

9. Have you used your Joey-Bunz insert in any other brand diaper?

I have not tried this insert in a different diaper, it is kind of long for other diapers

10. Do you prefer to use hemp inserts to microfiber?

I very much prefer either hemp or bamboo over microfiber!
