Diggin' Our Pandalina's Pocket Cloth Diapers

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this review. All opinions expressed are my own and 100% honest.

Pandalina's Pocket is a Canadian company run and designed by WAHM, Lisa. She is super crafty and makes items such as cloth diapers, bibs, jewelry, stitch markers, and magnetic book markers.  She can also make swim diapers and will be launching some hybrid fitteds in the next few months.

Her pocket diaper design was inspired by her use of pocket diapers on her son.
She made her pocket openings with less of a flap. This allows for the insert to stay in the diaper and remain covered so you don't run the risk of the microfiber inserts being against baby's skin.

This Pandalina's Pocket diaper is actually my most recent cloth diaper purchase.



I chose a pocket diaper with 'Cars Go Round' print and a black fleece inner.
The black fleece inner gives this diaper a pretty sharp look.
I love the vibrant colors of the print and that it has multicolored snaps!



These diapers have a three snap, snap-up rise (x-small, small, medium and unsnapped large) to adjust from infant (10lbs) to toddler (40lbs). This particular diaper has color coded snaps to easily change sizes by matching snap colors.


 Besides the sharp look of the black fleece, I also like black because staining isn't noticeable.

Looking at the opening you can see how the insert is tucked in nicely. When snapped on my little man I know there isn't a risk of the microfiber resting on my son's skin, which is a problem I have had with some of our other pocket diapers.


Other great features of this diaper:
-Two rows of color coded waist snaps.
-Soft, stretchy leg and waist elastic.
-We have had no leak issues with this diaper.


 Bug played in the sand box for quite some time. This diaper kept his messes in and the sand out!


Do you dig this diaper?

Win it: Pandalina's Pocket will be giving away a matching Diaper and Bib set to one of my readers during the Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway hop! Check back June 21st!

  1. I love how there are 4 rows of snaps, so the diaper gets super tiny. I also love all of the prints available.
