I was given the opportunity to review the Lovely Pocket Diapers newborn stuffable AIO, for my newest addition. The LPD is a stuffable AIO with a microsuede liner, a sewn in microfiber insert, pocket opening to allow additional inserts, and double leg gussets which are an incredible feature for newborns.
This is our third cloth diapered newborn and having tried several pocket or AIO options in the past that never fit a newborn well, I was a little nervous at first. Usually fit is a problem, I actually met Kim of DDL four years ago while troubleshooting a leaking pocket diaper on my newborn due to fit issues (true story-Kim). This was not a problem with the LPD, when my daughter first tried the diaper she was 4 weeks old, about 11.5lbs and midway through the snap settings. The Lovely Pocket Newborn AIO diaper adjusted much smaller than I needed, and allowed for the snap settings to accommodate an umbilical cord as well. 6 weeks later, around 15lbs we are still using the Lovely Newborn diaper, while all of the other “newborn” diapers have been long outgrown. I’ve yet to have a leak for regular daytime use and we still have one snap left before it is outgrown. I am pleasantly surprised by how much I like this diaper; the large variety of snaps can prove to be daunting to newbie so there may be a learning curve for some.
Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩ More intimidating for newbies than just a regular sized AIO but still easy enough that anyone should figure it out very soon. No stuffing required makes washing and folding easier.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩✩ These diapers are $11 each which falls a few dollars below other popular newborn compatible AIO’s on the market. The diaper is manufactured in China which may be what brings the price point lower.
Performance ✩✩✩✩✩ This has become a go to out of the house diaper for us, because I am able to get a few hours without fear of leaks with my heavy wetter. The gussets do an awesome job at containing messy newborns poops.
Fit ✩✩✩✩✩ I am very impressed with how long I have been able to use this diaper because of the design, and it fits very trim on a newborn.
Overall: I think these diapers make a great addition to a cloth diaper newborn collection. I really like the fit of the Lovely Newborn Stuffable AIO, the design allows them to fit for longer than a typical newborn diaper. The materials have been able to withstand wash & wear well.
