Hope and Joe Chanda not only are the blessed parents of twin boys but also manage to find time to operate their business Baby Babu.
Joe has been a joy to work with! I’ve really come to appreciate owners who care about their customers and representatives.
Several months ago I was sent products to try out. Due to my busy schedule I asked reader Daniella to put Baby Babu to the test of course not before I could put it on Camden first!
There are several aspects I want to point out that I liked about Baby Babu pocket cloth diapers:
- Snap inside pocket to secure the insert.
- Inner gussets to help prevent leaks or blow-outs.
- Several rise snaps. Camden has a short rise allowing me to set the rise on the 2nd row. Giving him plenty of growing room. Camden is the same height and weight as Daniella’s son mentioned below and as you will see the diaper fit him much differently.
- A front and back pocket opening. No need to pull out the insert as it will agitate out due to the water being allowed to flow through the opening pushing the insert out.
- Low price point for a one-sized pocket cloth diaper.
- Adorable applique/embroidery choices. I am loving this Slow Down! turtle
Overall, I was pleased with the performance and cute factor of Baby Babu pocket cloth diapers.
I hope that by adding Daniella’s perspective you will get a well-rounded review.

We received our Baby Babü (RUFF RUFF Dog ) Pocket Cloth Diaper as part of an assorted fluff mail. While I was going through each item, my son quickly spotted the Baby Babü and kept it to himself. That is a good start, a toddler that hugs a diaper because the doggie flapping tongue!
As usual washed everything prior to use and this was the very first diaper he requested to use ( he was 20mo when we received it). My very first worry were the snaps. I had not much experience with them and my son has no patience to wait for me while I adjust the fit.
The few (about 6-8x) times we used it within our rotation stash, we had a great performance. A fair trimness and absorbency were reached as I added a hemp doubler to the included microfiber insert as usual for summer days when D raises his fluids intake. No “opportunity” to try the leg gussets with any blowout (phew!) but for us soft inner gussets help to avoid the dreaded elastic marks in his tights.
The two openings sure helped to stuff the diaper easier and comfortably. Never used the front snap though always forgot it was there.
I was able to adjust properly the fit through the snaps but it was the right fit only for the moment. He was hitting the 28lbs and just above 34” tall. He used the diaper all unsnapped and you could tell he would outgrow the rise any day soon. Actually, you could get a peek if he got all busy playing around.
He is a solid boy that is for sure, and most OS diapers are leaving us as he approaches and surpasses the 30lbs mark. We started cloth diapering when he turned one year old, but I can tell this is a great diaper for those that start cloth diapering with younger or slimmer babies.
Said that, after a couple of weeks I decided to pass on this cute diaper to a dear friend that is expecting her second child. Her oldest is a couple of months younger and a bit shorter than D.
She tried the diaper on him “just for fun”. He usually wears one-size diapers in the medium setting but with Baby Babü he needed all the way unsnapped. That is why she decided to keep it for the new baby on December.
