The Dirty Details:
The Blissful Booty Perfect Pocket diaper was right off the bat a bit different, simply because it has a bamboo terry fleece insert instead of a regular old microfiber insert. I don’t know a lot about bamboo but I was interested in seeing what it could do, the insert was the thinnest insert I had ever seen and I was a bit skeptical about it’s powers of absorption.
Day Use: 3.5 Bums Up
Overnight Use: 2.0 Bums Up
Ease of Use: 3.5 Bums Up
Quality: 4.0 Bums Up
Overall: 3.25 Bums Up
Daytime Use: The Blissful Booty Perfect Pocket preformed on par with most of the pocket diapers I have tried. It’s great for daytime when the boys aren’t in the diapers for an extended period of time. The double leg gussets help to keep any wayward leaks from going out the side. this is especially important for certain poop situations. Or so I have been told. Ahem.
Overnight Use: For the most part, I have given up on pockets for nights. At least when they are only stuffed with one or two inserts. While the bamboo insert was great for daytime use, it was hardly sufficient for nights. This may not be an issue for a smaller/ younger baby. Remember, I am talking about 3 boys who all weigh in around 30lbs and they are all champion wetters.
Ease of Use: This was easy to stuff and fairly easy to snap. I do like the more rounded pocket opening at the back, I feel like it keeps inserts from peeking out and wicking. There are three snaps and an overlap option on both the right and left flaps which is not typical. I have a tough time with 3 snaps on squirmy kids- I can never line everything up correctly while trying to get them to hold still. If snaps aren’t your thing, this diaper comes in Aplix as well.
Quality: This diaper has some nice features- the double leg gussets are always a plus, the option for snaps or Aplix, he ability to crossover from either side not to mention the bamboo insert.
Overall: I think this diaper is on par with most pockets I have tried. It gets the job done for daytime, struggles a bit at night when used as-is (but has plenty of room to stuff with extra inserts). The extra added touches are nice and help to set it apart from diapers that are similar. *Be sure to prep your bamboo insert 8-10 times by itself before introducing it to your microfiber- the oils from the bamboo can cause absorbency issues with the microfiber!
