Good quality diaper. I love the fleece lining. Beats microsuede hands down for feel and ease of cleaning. We had to use formula for my son since before we left the hospital, so the ease of spraying **** off of fleece is very helpful (it sticks on microsuede way more). I don't like that it is open on the top. I know inserts agitate out in theory, but they just bunch up inside, so this is gimmicky to me. The opening causes the lining to stick out and tucking it in is an extra step when putting it on. I wish there was an option for bamboo inserts instead of microfiber, too, even at higher cost. I use microfiber as a last resort, not a first choice.
We have tried several different kinds of cloth diapers mostly in the pocket variety - Kawaii, Charlie Banana, G diaper, bumgenius, applecheeks, little bee, rumparooz and Nicki's is my favorite so far. They fit my son like a dream. They come with microfiber inserts, which I am not a fan of. They work fine for my son during the day, but definitely wouldn't hold up to night time. He sleeps for 8-10 hours (4 months old) and I've found that the best combination for inserts is a bamboo prefold and then a double-sided soaker on top. The one I use is bamboo on the bottom side and a stay dry fleece on top. The inner layer of the Nicki diaper stays so dry, I can't believe how dry it is in the morning and my son is a heavy wetter at night! The inserts are always completely soaked but the diaper itself is dry and no leaks. Here are my pros and cons... Pros Feels dry against skin the fit is awesome! super cute prints very affordable (my 2nd favorite are the rumparooz but they are double the cost!) very quick drying time (we hang dry our diapers and there's nothing worse than needing a diaper and you find that it's still damp half a day later) Cons not a fan of the double sided openings for the insert, wish it were just in the back and that the back opening were a little bigger no waterproof panel at the top of the front of the diaper comes with only one microfiber insert With that being said, I was willing to spend some money on different inserts and am still thrilled with these diapers and would highly recommend them.
Great diaper for the price. I wish there was an option for a different material for the insert; microfiber doesn't work for us, so I would pay more for something else!
I have 4 Nicki's pockets already, with two more arriving in the mail ttoday! I absolutely love these diapers and will continue buying them even though my stash is definitely enough. My husband even reaches for this brand first when he does diaper changes.
I really liked the price of this diaper so I gave it a try! I prewashed it once and have not had any leaks! I personally don't care for the opening in the front and had a hard time getting the inner fabric tucked in the diaper, so I simply sewed it shut (I don't mind un-stuffing the diaper!)! Now it's great! It is every bit as good as any name brand diaper I have! My sis will be having her fist baby soon and I will definitely recommend these to her!
