Elemental Joy- New brand of budget pocket diapers


Big news in the cloth diaper world! A new brand has been born and it’s called Elemental Joy. These new diapers may look familiar because they’re from the makers of bumGenius.


This line features One Size Pocket Diapers, inserts, and wet bags (for now). The website and price point are all about the bottom line for many cloth diapering families- budget.

These diapers run just $8.55 each with a flat diaper insert included. The more you bundle the more you save. They even offer a subscription service that lets you bundle 6 diapers at $28.75 that are delivered every 30 days to help you slowly build your stash. When you consider the monthly cost of disposables this is a great way to slowly get started with your own set.

Diaper Details (from Elemental Joy)

One Size (8-35lbs)*

• Pocket accommodates any diaper insert for customized absorbency
• 3×3 snap down design adjusts the size to fit* small-large sizes (approx 8-35+ pounds)
• Gentle elastic prevents leaks
• Waterproof outer cover

• Includes Elemental Joy flat diaper insert

The colors and prints coordinate well together and I suspect they will bring more options in the future (though likely not as many as their main line where prints and design are more of the selling feature than price point). Like other products in the bumGenius line, Elemental Joy products are manufactured in the US.

    What are the elastics in these diapers like? We have had trouble with bumgenius elastics and they always get worn out. Are these like that? After about 6 months my flip covers, pockets and all-in-ones were stretched out.

      I haven’t used them yet but heard that bumgenius has changed the elastics since lots of people had issues like you and they are supposed to be much better quality now! 🙂

    That’s awesome! We only ever used flats in our 4.0s, so the inserts were a waste.
