I have a whole stash of these for my 5 and 8 year olds. They need these for nights and am so glad for a larger sized diaper to fit our needs. If using these overnight, I recommend you boost with a hemp insert, this set up holds up for my medium to heavy wetting boys. I haven’t found the same issues as the other review at all, but if there was ever a quality issue, I know with 1,000% certainty that Thirsties would make it right. I would recommend fully prepping the inserts for maximum absorbency.
I loved the size and idea of the diaper. There are several cons that appear during our use. 1) the inserts are far too thin. Previously in our smaller size diaper, we used 6 layer bamboo. This time we used the original inserts came with this diaper. They roll us super easily and cannot even hold 2 hours. We have never had leak before, but with this diaper, twice in one day. Disappointed. 2) the material feels rather thin and distorts really easily. Cannot believe we paid for this price for this low quality diaper. 3)The inside layer is made of microfiber. I hope oneday thirties could switch it to organic bamboo or cotton. Overall, we like the size of this diaper. But we are really disappointed by the quality. I had so much hope for this diaper given it is from Thirsties, bought four at once and washed them all. Totally disillusioned after the first day's use, because of the leaking issue and the material's quality.
I am sorry to hear that the XL Pocket Diaper did not meet your needs. We designed this diaper purposefully after a lot of research and feedback from parents who need a larger size option in our pocket diapers. The Stay Dry microfleece lining on the pocket of the diaper was highly requested by the parents for their children. We did add an additional layer to the all natural inserts in both the cotton and the hemp inserts to increase the absorbency compared to our one size natural pocket diaper line.
