Padded Tush Stats recently released surveys for the Rocky Mountain One-Sized Pocket Diaper. After numerous calls for survey respondents on social networking sites, blogs, and cloth diapering community forums, we received 28 responses.
In the survey, questions are broken down by the kinds of diapering issues faced by the babies. Before we look at the results of the survey, I wanted to provide some basic information on the diaper. You can also see this in the video found below.
Basics Behind Rocky Mountain Pocket Diaper
* Has an “Internal Adjustment System” to allow you to adjust the diaper size. This is a snap system on the elastic of the diaper. Therefore, you don’t see a snap down rise or anything (quite similar to the button feature of the Fuzzibunz one size diaper). This feature is intended to make it to where it fits the baby from birth to potty training.
* The Diaper has snap closures (two on each side)
* there is a pocket opening in the back where you can stuff an insert into the diaper
* The top of the diaper (the part touching the baby’s bum) is made with a stay-dry suedecloth so they feel less wetness. Unique form most diapers, this part of the diaper can come in a variety of colors.
* Outside of the diaper is made of a waterproof PUL
* The diaper gathers at the gussets to help resist leaks
* The diaper comes with a microfiber insert
Owners were most impressed with the trimness of this diaper (which could most likely be because of the internal size adjustments of the system). Owners of rash prone babies were most impressed with this diaper (most likely due to the stay dry interior). People liked the softness against the baby’s skin, as well as the cute color selection. Many did have issues with leaks with this diaper.

Comments from Survey Respondents
“RMD are great!I have had RMD in constant use for nearly 2.5 years now, and it looks just as it did as new... wears so well!”
“I found that the newborn exclusive breastfeed poop leaked out of the actual seams on the thighs of these. Not the side or anything, but where the thread created the casing for the thigh elastic.”
“I used the inserts that came with the diapers (free from various companies) and added thirsties doublers to make sure there were no leaks. Worked almost every time!”
“For night time with my heavy wetter I put two of the inserts in and it works perfectly.”
“The fit comes and goes depending on what kind of growth spurt we're going through. Right now my daughter's legs are fairly thin so they don't fit quite as well as she seems to be in between settings, but when her legs are chunkier they are great!”
“With the long one size insert I fold the front down as I have a boy for a little added protection where he needs it since I am currently using the diaper on the 2nd to smallest setting.”
“To avoid wings in the front and leaking ask for assistance in learning how to snap them. It's to hard to explain and it took me asking for help to learn the right way to snap them.”
“The opening at the back of the diaper needs to be wider. I have a small hand and can barely stuff the diaper with a thin insert.”
“The poop just peels right off the inside, leaving virtually no residue and has never stained on me at all. Very very helpful - I always try to time it right so my son has this diaper on when he normally poops because cleanup is a breeze!”
“I love how the sizing is in the leg gussets!”
