This is a great diaper. The workmanship is what you'd expect from a high-priced diaper but this WAHM pocket is very affordable (ours was $12.50 with insert at www.tkcuddlers.com). It's very cute, pretty colors and the fleece is super soft wash after wash. The S-hook fasteners are easy for me to do, and will be hard for her to undo. This is the diaper my husband reaches for first. I can see her wearing this diaper for a long time. She is 3 months old, 11 lbs and while her medium is a bit bulky on her, it fits around her waist with the s-hooks crossed over. Nice and snug around her skinny legs most of the time, but do gap a little when she is squirmy because the rise is a bit big on her - she'll grow into them better soon though. It also fits our 27 lb 3 year old in a pinch, and is nice and trim on him! Stays comfortable when wet - Sydney was in hers for over 4 hours the other day when we were busy running errands, when I changed her the insert was soaked but she was not complaining. We will definitely be getting more Cubbies as she outgrows her smaller diapers

ETA If you like BumGenius but prefer a fleece lining over suedecloth, you will probably like Cubbies, I would compare them to BG 2.0 in fit. You can get them with suedecloth too if you want. The only reason I didn't give them 5 pins is personal preference NOT performance. I just prefer stitching at the legs so I can see they fit snug, and a PUL that is a little softer.

i give this dipe a 5 pin review! we went on a road trip to california for the day and when i pack diapers for a road trip, i need to be VERY confident in what i pack cause there's no "oops it leaked"...that means clothes changing and using up more of my packed dipes! well you guessed it, i packed BOTH my cubby pockets. i trusted them that much that when i went to change baby, i used these first and new they could hold up for the ride. YES! for the whole 4 hour ride! and he didn't soak through and from what i notice so far, he never fights to get this diidpe off like some of this others when he gets them wet. and the microfleece suede i think it is...i will ask kelli, it is SOOOOOOO soft, dh said he wanted to sleep on it! lol the clasps are unlike anything i have ever seen before, you can tell that kelli put alot of thought and work into creating something for MOM and BABY. easy for mom, comfy for baby.

I think that these diapers are great! They fit Tommy great, and I have not had any problems with leakage yet. I also really love the inserts. They absorb very well, and Tommy did not feel wet at all. The only time that he cried while wearing one was when he pooped, and I didn't realize it cuz I could smell anything. LOL! (I'm still getting use to the fact that cloth diapers do not smell and seem soiled or wet at all.

Oh and I have to add that I just love that you can buy diapers that he the things on the butt. I might end up getting one with a frog on it or something like that sometime soon.

I LOVE this dipe! High quality with a fantastic price tag. I have a tall skinny babe and Kelli recommended a medium dipe with a longer rise and custom made them for me based on his measurements-all at no extra cost!!! Needless to say, his diapers fit perfectly. Perfect fit=comfort for baby & NO LEAKS!

The colors are beautiful and there is a large selection to choose from.

The s-hook is perfect for toddlers who like to take their dipes off. My little man can't get these unhooked on his own, but I can easily get them off.

The diapers are super trim but very absorbent. I use a CB microfiber insert rather than her inserts, so I can't comment on how well her inserts perform.

The pocket is in front, so I can easily reach in to feel if the insert is wet or not. With other pocket dipes, the pocket is in back and I don't know if it's wet until I take it off.

The only downside is that the pocket opening is rather small (dh's hands are too big to stuff it), but that's the price that comes with a super trim diaper.

Highly, Highly recommended!

This diaper is by far the prettiest cloth diaper I have ever seen. I love that it is completely customizeable. I like that you can change the inner fabric. It is very trim, and generally I'm not a fan of trim diapers, but this one rocks.

The only downfall is Anastasia leaks like crazy in this diaper. She may be too small for the size I bought. Anthony does not leak though, so we use them on him. And they are not easy for him to get off, but I can take them off in a snap!

[color=#3366FF]5 PINS!![size=4]

I have a small in the older sizing (slightly smaller than current ones) and it fits perfectly on my nb! I LOVE the adjustability of the S-hooks, the microfleece inner is super soft.

I use Kelli's insert and it is amazing!! It will be soaked and the fleece is still dry to the touch and no leaks! I definately need more!!

4 out of 5 pins

I love these diapers. They are soft and the only time we have had a leak is overnight. Nap times it works out okay. Good in the car and it impressed MIL! Definitely a plus!

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

4 pins

This is a pretty nice diaper. I bought mine from picklesmama/crissy and although used it was in excellent condition, not showing any wear or tear. Personally, Im not down with the S-hook, i was constantly fumbling with it and for some reason i was just too slow. Very trim fit, though I probably wont use it for too much longer as its getting too small for my chunky babe. I just dont have anything negative to say about this diaper!

3 pins.

They were cute. I had one velcro and one s hook. Didnt care for the s hook, could never seem to get a good fit with it, especially on a wigglely, skinny baby! Consistently had wicking around the legs no matter what we tried. I was always able to get a good fit with the velcro one.

I love these pockets, and I want more, but Kelli is not doing customs this month.... I love how Kelli will work with you to create a diaper that will fit your LO. The only thing I don't like is the front pocket opening, but that is only because it grosses me out to touch a wet insert, and my boy seems to pee right at the top of the insert...

I bet if you asked her to, she'd put an opening in the back for ya!

Yeah, I've had that request before It just can't be on an "edge" of the diaper

they work great very trim, and i have to say i love the s-hook its easy to use and i have a wiggly baby when it comes to diaper changes..only had one leak and i think that was casue i didnt wash them enough times before wearing and he was in the diaper for more then 2 hours(we were at dinner) but over all its a great diaper and dont forget the price they are very affordable which deserves an extra pin

Cubbies now make up most of my stash. All of them were in UEC. These dipes are great, I love them and have nothing bad to say. They are very trim and I can use them at night without any problems.

I love these diapers! They fit well (and so trim) and I never have any leak issues. Kelli is a great mama who will work with you to get you exactly what you want - her customer service is fantastic.

It takes a bit to get used to the S-hook closure but after a couple of days using these diapers, it is second-nature to me. I have a very active, squirmy eleven month old and we are able to get these on and off in just a few quick seconds. Even hubby loves them!

We have used these overnight and on long car trips with zero issues - highly, highly recommended!

I give TKCs a 5 pin rating for sure! They are the trimmest diaper we own and the S-hooks are totally toddler proof. They also fit nicely and don't leak. Great diapers Kelli.

I've just started using one of these diapers, and I really, really like it so far! It's very trim and so cute. I love the hooks because I really dislike velcro type closures.

I wish I could easily buy more, but they're not always in stock.

They'd be perfect if they could be one-size, but then they wouldn't be so nice and trim. That's really just my issues of wanting to save money buy only needing one size.

A really great diaper. The only other pocket diaper I've used so far is Bum Genius 3.0, and the Cubby is trimmer and fits better. And it's lots cuter and doesn't have velcro!

Thanks, Kelli. I hope to buy more soon!
