Royal Fluff One-Size Pocket Diaper Review

Advertisement

I have been cloth diapering my daughter since she was about three months old. I have tried a number of different types of diapers. My favorite by far are all-in-twos and covers with inserts. However, I do own a number of pocket diapers with cute prints that I frequently use as covers. Thus, when Royal Fluff recently approached me about reviewing a one-size pocket diaper, I appreciatively accepted the opportunity.

Royal Fluff offers a line of one-size pocket diapers that fit babies between 9 and 35 pounds. The pocket diapers consist of 100% polyester knit fabric with a thin, flexible water-proof PUL lining the interior. The inside of the diaper is lined with soft fleece, which feels gentle against sensitive skin and wicks moisture into the microfiber insert stuffed into the pocket. Each Royal Fluff diaper comes with an insert that consists of three layers of microfiber terry cloth.

As a one-size diaper, Royal Fluff pocket diapers feature four rows of three torso snaps that allow sizing of the diaper from small to medium to large to extra large. At a little over 2 years old and approximately 26 pounds, my daughter comfortably wears the diaper on the large setting, meaning that Royal Fluff diapers will fit well past potty training for most kids. The pocket diaper also features two rows of two hip snaps plus two rows of ten waist snaps. I prefer to use only the first row on my daughter at the moment, and I currently use the third and fourth rows of waist snaps, meaning Royal Fluff offers plenty of room around the waist for my daughter to grow. I particularly like the Royal Fluff diapers run a bit larger than other brands. The diaper will definitely fit my daughter through potty training.

Although I generally prefer double leg gussets on my cloth diapers, the Royal Fluff pocket diaper features a single row of fairly stretchy elastic around the leg holes. I have yet to have any major leak problems with the single leg gussets. The interior fleece of the Royal Fluff pocket diaper is super soft against the skin and provides a comfortable barrier against the absorbent microfiber insert that comes with the diaper. Together the diaper and insert provide a great diaper for both wetness and messes. I also like to lay one of my regular Stay Dry inserts on top of the diaper, using the pocket diaper as a cover instead. I get great performance from the diaper as both a pocket diaper and a cover.

I received a Royal Fluff one-size pocket diaper in the Love print, which is a white diaper with Love printed all over in various colors and fonts. My daughter absolutely adores her new Love diaper. She even knows the name of the diaper! Royal Fluff also offers a number of other colors and prints for boys, girls, and both. You can find a lot of gorgeous diapers for your little prince or princess at Royal Fluff.

Update: At seven months and 17 pounds, my son wears the Royal Fluff pocket diaper on the medium rise setting with one set of waist snaps exposed. At 30 pounds, my preschooler daughter still fits into the diaper on the large rise setting with two sets of waist snaps exposed. She has slimmed down a bit as she has grown taller and become more active, so I think that older kids over the recommended 35 pounds can fit into this pocket diaper.

The only major downside to Royal Fluff one-size pocket diapers is the price. At $22.99 to $23.99 each, Royal Fluff diapers are prices considerably higher than comparable brands. Royal Fluff does offer a package of diapers. At $225 for a pack of twelve diapers, each diaper costs $18.75 each. However, for a newer, non-name brand cloth diaper, I consider the overall pricing a little high for my tastes.

Final Verdict: I am generally pleased with my one-size pocket diaper from Royal Fluff. The print is beautiful, and the company offers a number of other prints and colors. The microfiber insert works as promised, and the soft fleece interior wicks moisture away from the skin. Although a bit on the pricey side, I especially like that Royal Fluff pocket diapers run on the larger size. Although not right for newborns, the Royal Fluff one-size pocket diaper will work on most toddlers through potty training. My daughter has plenty of room to grow in hers!
