Review: Pocket Diaper - Bumwear
A snap type Onesize PUL (Polyurethane laminate) pocket diaper. I love this PUL pocket diaper for its softness... it's just like wearing clothes. I swear!
Outer layer: PUL for waterproofness with prints and colours
Inner layer: coloured microfleece
Expect it to function like any other PUL pocket diaper. Since it is so soft, the PUL layer is thinner. I had encountered dampness on the pocket diaper itself especially around the inner leg casing if my heavywetter wears it more than 2-3 hours, depending on her fluid output too.
Shape & Fit
It is not a very well-shaped diaper as this is the only pocket diaper than will drop and reveal the buttock when my dd runs and plays! I received feedback from my friend who is using on her 1 months old baby boy (who is more than 5kg now) that the fit is not the best too.
Still haven't figure out the reason why it is so... probably the waist is not well snug even I fasten on tighter snap. But you can't snap too tight as it won't be comfortable on the child.
Another thing that I suspect - the heavy insert? (actually is the insert that is full of urine)... more likely this is another factor and therefore have to change them often. Any yet, I still have dropping diaper until my dd got herself out from it bottomless! LOL!
The room for insert is very spacious and I need to press out the extra air in there otherwise... you will feel like the diaper is so... you name it.
One more thing, the snap is difficult to snap on compare to other snap diaper. It took me longer time to wear this one.
TIPS: Try to snap first before wearing on baby like wearing a pant. It works for wriggle little one but still I don't prefer this method as it won't be in place properly either. I have to adjust and readjust... but you can try this tip on your wriggle baby and update me.
1) Onesize diaper
2) Quick drying
3) The softest PUL pocket diaper that I have
4) Very easy to use... stuff, wear and go!
1) Outer layer will be damp or sometimes wet depends on the wetting
2) The shape and the fit is not that good compare with other pocket diaper
3) No top stitch at the back of the diaper, abit messy (Happy Heiny's pocket diaper is another diaper without top stitch)
It is worth to try for bumwear as the issue on the fit is also because of different built from one baby to the other. Only if they can replace the snap with a better type, I think it will be a very popular pocket diaper too.
