Welcome to the start of OTTW's Summer Cloth Diaper Celebration! I wanted to start it of with a Bang! This week I want to talk about my favorite type of diapers....Pocket Diapers! Most of us know and love GoGreen Pocket Diapers; I know I do. I am so excited to take the opportunity to talk about them. GoGreen is always coming up with something new and the latest has been their introduction of the Champ 2.0. I want to take a moment to explain what changed between the original Champ and the new Champ 2.0. I'll start, though, by giving a little info on GoGreen's original pocket diaper.
Little Man loves playtime in his regular GoGreen Pocket Diapers. They are your standard pocket diaper. They come with a microfiber insert. The outside is PUL and comes in many cute solid colors, prints and fuzzy choices. The interior is a suede cloth. Unlike your standard microfiber or microterry, this is very soft and doesn't pill. Also, solids roll right off and hardly leave a mess to spray off. I've also never had a problem with stains! The back opening for the pocket has elastic on both the outer shell and the inner fabric. This is great because there's no extra fabric that can sneak out the back and cause leaks. This diaper has three levels of snaps to adjust for size in the front. There is one row of snaps to adjust the waist and a row on each side for the hip snaps. This diaper fits Little Man very well. He is now 26 lbs and 31 inches. They fit his chunky thighs too. The rise is very nice and I can still snap it in three and four snaps in, so there is plenty of room to grow!
Now on to compare the original Champ and the improved Champ 2.0!
The Champ is the deluxe model of Pocket Diaper; it is no longer sold by GoGreen because it has been replaced by the improved Champ 2.0. (The Crazy Evening print is the blue circle print with yellow snaps on the left. It is the original Champ. The Tripping 'Billy print is the orange with billy goats on the right. It is the Champ 2.0.)
The Champ 2.0 has the same cover over the front opening as the Champ, but the Champ 2.0 also has a cover over the back opening too. Personally, I like having the double elastic on the back opening, but I can see where the back cover can be useful and is probably more cost effective for the company. (Champ on the left; Champ 2.0 on the right.)
The Champ had two rows of snaps for waist adjustment, but didn't have a hip snap. The Champ 2.0 has the ever important hip snap. This feature keeps the front sides of the diaper from sneaking up or down with movement. I also like that the Champ 2.0 also has extra snaps that face the other way to make the waist able to be adjusted very small for newborns and small babies. It also comes in handy when you forget your wetbag and need to secure the diaper shut so it doesn't make a mess in the diaper bag!
I loved the Champ pocket diaper, but there were a few things that I wanted to see changed. I was so excited when I found out that they made those changes with the Champ 2.0! I love the hip snap and the extra waist snaps that fasten to the outside. The best part is that they didn't change their price! The GoGreen diapers are still a very affordable diaper! The quality of these diapers rivals the expensive 'brand name' cloth diapers, yet they are literally half the price! The original GoGreen Pocket Diapers are sold for $9.99!! The Champ 2.0 is sold for $14.95!! They also have amazing and affordable accessories from extra microfiber inserts to wetbags (that retail for $6.99!!) I am also excited for all you aplix lovers out there. They are going to be introducing an aplix conversion called the Adapt-a-snap. It makes your snap diapers into aplix diapers with no sewing!!
GoGreen has graciously offered a lucky reader the chance to get a Champ 2.0 of their own!
