Where does your husband stand with cloth diapers?
I’m amazed at how different each dad is. Some hate it and will only use disposables. Others are indifferent and just put on whatever looks easiest. But, there are many that are just as committed and passionate as us moms are.
My husband is a mix of the last and the middle. I think that’s probably where most men stand. They want what’s easiest (and, quite frankly, so do I!) and what’s best for baby and/or wallet.
With that in mind, it’s important to have cloth diapers that aren’t overly complicated for those who aren’t as well versed in the how-tos of cloth diapering.
In our house that also includes not having diapers that stink.
What are some dad friendly cloth diapers?
My qualifications are easy to stuff (if it’s a pocket), easy to care for (no internal soaker that will get funky), easy to put on, attractive (we all care about style to some point), wide size range, diaper sprayer friendly and price.
After making the following list I realized that all are available in cute prints, velcro option, one-sized/two-sized, easy to stuff and easy to clean. That’s sticking to my qualifications!
Rumparooz: Rumparooz are my favorite pocket because they have every favorite feature all in one diaper. The “poop scoop” is a real winner with dads…no leaks = “honey, I want a whole stash of these.” I prefer the Rumparooz pocket over the Bum Genius pocket because the flap on the Bum Genius (although meant to be a helper) gets in my way and makes things messier- for me anyways :) Microchamois inner makes spraying or rinsing or plopping easy.

Kawaii One Size: My favorite of this brand are the Snazzy Minky Velcro. The velcro is tight and the panel wide. I have a review of these on the schedule but I promise I wouldn’t include them in this list if they weren’t worthy ;) … by the time I post this I’m going to have a whole stash! I can’t stop going back to buy more.here.
Cutiepoops: Easy to stuff. Super cute designs. Affordable.You don’t have to get velcro diapers if you want Dad to be involved. They’re just easier, especially if your husband has big hands making it trickier to snap 4 tiny snaps together on a wiggly baby. My husband doesn’t enjoy changing diapers but he can use any of the hundreds (okay so it just seems like I have hundreds but I really don’t) we have. Given a choice he’ll choose the one that produces the shortest pit stop time.
Also, it’s highly unlikely that my husband will remove an insert from a pocket and it’s a guarantee that he will toss the wool cover in the washer area. So, choosing diapers for him that he can’t mess up makes us all happy.
