GoGreen Pocket Diapers sent me their brand new champ pocket diaper to try. GoGreen diapers are known to be high quality, affordable pocket diapers. I haven’t gotten to try one of their standard diapers (which retail for $8.99-$9.99), but I’ve heard they are excellent diapers. This week, the standard diapers are restocking with added features, including snap overlap, hip snaps and the same low price. The champ is slightly more at $14.95, but has additional features that make it worth it (and $14.95 is an awesome price for a 1-size pocket diaper with two inserts anyway!)
I received the “Champ Noir,” which is a black diaper, with multicolored snaps. The champ has two rows of snap closures vs. the standard’s one, and the multicolored snaps make it far easier to get it snapped correctly! It is a one-size diaper by way of rise snaps, and the champ has four rise settings, to the standard diaper’s three.
The champ comes with two full size, 3-layer microfiber/bamboo blend inserts (the standard dipe includes one microfiber terry insert.)
The champ has a bamboo blend microsuede inner and double leg gussets to contain messes.
The diaper and insert have a snap, so the insert can be snapped in place. The first time I used the diaper, the insert shifted forward (or something) and caused the inner to poof out a little. The diaper didn’t wick or leak, and the next several times I used the diaper, I didn’t have this issue. I’m not sure if it was operator error (probably) or if the insert shrunk a bit more with subsequent washings.
The snap in insert would also allow you to easily use the diaper as an all-in-two, though I would use a liner, insert sock, or non-microfiber insert if you do that.
The diaper has front and back pocket openings, for easy stuffing and allowing the insert to agitate out in the wash.
The insert really does agitate out in the wash, and leaving it snapped in means easy re-stuffing (if you don’t remove the inserts to machine dry them.) I’ve heard some people say they don’t unstuff any of their pocket diapers, but that doesn’t work for me. Diapers that don’t have front and rear openings just end up with the inserts balled up on the bottom of the pocket when I try that!
Here is the champ on the extra-small setting folded and stretched. Measurements aren’t an exact science of course!
My little guy is about 21ish pounds, and I got a great fit on the medium setting, with plenty of room to grow.
The diaper doesn’t dig into his belly, and it fits snugly at the legs.
I told my son to stay still so I could take a picture of his butt and this is what he did:
Finally, here’s the difference in what it looks like when Mommy stuffs it correctly! (first try on the left)
