Welcome to day number eight of 30 Days of Dipes! Today is sponsored by:
To start week two of this event I will be spotlighting Sweet Pickles, a local to me (Minneapolis!) online cloth diaper retailer as well as reviewing and giving away a Rumparooz One-size Pocket Diaper! Make sure you check out the Leettle Hands & Feet review at The Gnome’s Mom as well!
Sweet Pickles is a local to me (Minnesota) online cloth diaper retailer. I think it’s safe to say that most of us do the bulk of our cloth diaper shopping online, simply because you have access to so many brands when you are shopping online vs not always having as wide of a selection in a brick and mortar store (or even having access to a store at all). I’ll let you in on a secret- I have never purchased cloth in an actual store. Three years of cloth diapering, three kids in cloth diapers- never set foot in a store. It’s not so crazy but there are days I kind of wish I could just touch and feel everything and check it out before I buy.
With Sweet Pickles you get the best of both worlds- you can do your shopping online and order local pick-up and skip the shipping costs, or if you want to see a diaper in person before buying you can schedule a consultation. Katrina (the owner of Sweet Pickles) also schedules parties and classes if you have a group of people who want to check out the latest diapers or learn the ins and outs of cloth diapering. What a great way to introduce your friends who may be on the fence about the fun of cloth diapering.
Cloth diapers can kind of be intimidating when you first start out. I know I was very confused trying to figure out the difference between a soaker and a doubler and a liner and which went with what diaper- the terminology alone is enough to make your head spin. I would have loved to have someone walk me through it all and ask my questions as they came up. Sweet Pickles takes one more step in making it easy for those new to cloth diapering- she chooses to sell only the diapers that have the best warranties and reliability so you can feel comfortable that you are buying a diaper that is going to last.

The Dirty Details:
Rumparooz is a pocket diaper with double leg gussets that is touted to fit your baby from 6 pounds to 35 pounds. I can’t speak for how it works on a newborn, but I will say that this diaper fits very well at 30 pounds!
Day Use: 4.5 Bums Up
Overnight Use: 4.5 Bums Up
Ease of Use: 4.5 Bums Up
Quality: 4.5 Bums Up
Overall: 4.5 Bums Up
Daytime Use: This diaper was a great fit during the day. The snap closures are easy to manage, the fit is trim when only using one insert and the double gussets keep everything right where it should be.
Overnight Use: This is one of the few pocket diapers that has worked well for us overnight. It comes with 2 inserts (called the 6r soaker) that can be used 6 different ways to get the right absorbency for your child at any moment. Both inserts in the “boy doubler” position got us through the night again and again.
Ease of Use: This diaper has an easy to stuff pocket, easy to understand insert configurations and it’s easy to size. Everything about this diaper was easy for me.
Quality: I found this to be a great quality diaper. The inner micro-chamois is soft, the PUL is nice and thick, the snaps are easy to use- even on a squirmy toddler!
Overall: The Rumparooz One-Size Pocket diaper is a fantastic diaper. If you are looking for a great pocket diaper for both day and nighttime use- this is for you!
Sweet Pickles is going to give one of you a Rumparooz One-Size Pocket in the color and size of your choice!
