I am really impressed by DryBees pocket diapers. DryBees are made in West Virginia for a small company founded by Lisa Adkins. As the owner of a childrenís online retail store I can sell nearly any brand of diapers. I choose to sell DryBees pocket diapers as my main pocket diaper because I am thrilled with their diapers. Now Drybees also makes an All in One cloth diaper with a microfiber soaker sewn in and a Drybees fleece pocket diaper that works great for overnights.
While Drybees pocket diapers are not as well known as other brands they are gaining in popularity so quickly that the demand can outstrip supply. Why are Drybees so popular?
DryBees are thoughtfully designed by a mother. Because the company is so small, Adkins is able to respond to input from cloth diaper users to continually improve her products. Constructed from a layer of PUL (Polyurethane Laminated) polyester and a layer of soft suedecloth, these diapers are carefully stitched for durability.
Adkins has paid special attention to detail in designing Drybees pocket diapers with topstitching across the top of the diaper front so the Aplix closure doesnít ride up and scratch babyís tummy. The soft elastic at the legs is encased in the diaper so it canít irritate sensitive skin. The back of Drybees diapers are elasticized so the inserts stay put. The hook and loop tabs also attach to laundry tabs for easy washing.
DryBees pocket diapers are less expensive than more well known pocket diapers, although they are made better than some more popular brands. DryBees are officially licensed to manufacture pocket diapers (Fuzzi Bunz owns the patent).
What I like best:
* Stretchy outer fabric holds up well to squirmy babies and is trim fitting
* Dozens of great colors that donít fade in the wash, Drybees uses only polyester fabrics for less wicking too!
* Soft suedecloth doesnít stick to messes and is less bulky than fleece used in other brands
* Aplix closure is easy to use
* No pins or closures needed so even novice cloth diaper users can use them, great for babysitters and new cloth diaper users
* Adjust the absorbency according to your babyís needs
* Roomy fit so they will fit your baby longer
What I donít like so much:
* While there are LOTS of colors, there are only a few prints available
* Drybees cloth diapers are made from synthetic fabrics, if you are committed to organics youíll want to look at the Ecobaby cloth diapers
* Drybees do not yet come in a Premie or Extra Large size
