The Oh Katy OS Pocket diaper is one of the diapers I purchased from DiaperJunction.com and I wanted very much to love it. I didn’t, initially, but as the Geekling has gotten some meat on his bones, I have grown quite a bit more fond of it.
Price: At just under $18 each, the diapers run just about average for a OS Pocket. For the price you get the diaper (obviously!) and two microfiber inserts – one which is resizable (via snaps) and one which is the newborn/doubler size. I love the flexibility in absorbency that this gives.
Ease of Use: Initially I thought I hated the snaps, and I do still think they’re not quite as easy to do with a squirmy baby as the aplix/velcro, but I’ve since changed my mind – at least partially. The snaps are sturdy and my son is unable to get them undone by kicking and squirming around. I wish they were a little easier to do while he’s twisting about, but I’ll take the slight difficulty in putting them on for the assurance that he can’t get them off as quickly as he can the aplix.
Fit on the Geekling: They were not fitting so well at first, but now that he’s grown a bit (14 pounds as of the writing of this review) they’re fitting him nicely. So nicely, in fact, that I’m planning on ordering at least a half dozen more.
General Thoughts: The inside of the diaper is SUPER soft and the Geekling seems to not mind it at all. The microfiber inserts are just as absorbent as any other microfiber insert (very) and stitched nicely. The outside of the diaper is also soft and the colors are gorgeous. Mine is “Twilight” and it’s really rich and pretty. The elastic seems fairly stretchy and nice and the rise is decent. The snap down sizing is nice and in general the snaps seem of high quality. I like it a lot and will be adding quite a few more to my stash.
