I recently switched my entire stash from fitteds to pockets. After a few trades I ended up finding some great pocket diapers that I had never tried before. One of them is the Blueberry Side Snap Minky pocket diaper.
When I was using fitteds it seemed that most had a longer rise. Although not a problem for most babies, for us it was too much diaper. We made it work but Paisley definately suffered from major bubble butt. She has a very short rise so finding a fitted diaper was harder (I did find one that fit perfect and even interviewed the maker: An Exclusive Interview with Lotus Baby).
When I received a Medium Blueberry Side Snap Minky pocket diaper in the mail my first reaction was, “This looks tiny!” I snapped it on Paisley and it was a perfect fit (visions of Cinderella just popped in my head).
However, there is a good and bad to this story.
The bad: Blueberry diapers are much higher priced than other sized pocket cloth diapers. Their one-size pockets run average to one-size fitteds I did own. But, for a new minky side snap blueberry diaper it would cost me $30.
The good: *I traded for the 3 I have via diaperswappers fsot forum. I see them pop-up often. Trades are a great way to make a transaction. Sales aren’t moving as fast this summer but I have found people very eager to trade.
* Blueberry Diapers has an outlet store available at: http://swaddlebees.com/products/newoutlet
* And the best- Blueberry Diapers runs an awesome sale a couple of times a year! The sale is Buy Two Get One Free. You need to register on their site for email updates. This is the only way of knowing when the sale will occur. Diapers sell out fast. This is the time when most Blueberry diapers are purchased.
I also really like the Blueberry microfiber/hemp inserts. They are trim and absorbent. And the price is affordable.
I’ll be posting soon on my other great pocket finds…*hint* they’re all minky
