Good basic pocket diaper. It is absolutely identical to my Alva Babies, wouldn't be surprised if they were the same with their own label... just pricier. Works well as a daytime diaper, but I had a lot of compression leaks with these. Stay dry fabric is amazing
I own 14 DS diapers, every color but white. They are similar to bumGenius 4.0s (bGs).
Design: DSDs are more generously sized & stretchier than bGs, & fit my baby slightly better. I didn't like the DSD snap design at first, but now like it just as well, if not more. It seems to allow for a less-squished tummy & closer fit than the bGs. It's two-opening pocket is easier to stuff as well as allows for the inserts to agitate out on it's own. Flaps over each opening help keep inserts in place. The front-facing flap is made of a water-proof material for leak-protection, the bum-side flap is not (The one, bum-side bG flap isn't either). Also, the DSDs only come with 1 basic insert (no snaps for customization, no doubler).
Quality: The colors are either true to the website photos or ever BETTER (brighter, more vivid). The stitching is not as uniform as the bGs. 1 of my 14 has some stitching that has come out(it's about a half-inch length where it appears the thread broke somehow. Not sure if it's my fault, or manufacturer's. 5 min of hand stitching will fix it.) The DSDs inner lining is thinner than the bGs, and it's started to noticeably pill, whereas a bG dipe I bought the same time as my first DSDs, is barely pilling at all. The inserts could be improved. Their sizing is not very uniform. 3 of 14 inserts are a full inch shorter in length than the others, and even the width narrows by up to 1/2 in on several as well. Absorbancy seems almost as good as the main insert for the bGs.
Experience: These don't leak, even overnight, when more than just included insert is used. They wash as well as any other diaper or better, thanks to not having to handle dirty inserts, and dry faster than bGs. I really like them!
Cost: With sales, mine cost only about $6.50 each. 1/3 the price of bG 4.0s! A FANTASTIC deal. Full price ($14), just ""okay"", due mostly to the single, non-customizable insert vs. bG's 2 inserts. If they're on sale for

This is a great pocket diaper! I love that you don't have to unstuff it. The insert is very soft and absorbent. I've used it on my twins (one boy, one girl) successfully for a few weeks. They're about 15 pounds. I started when they were about 12 pounds. I'm not a huge pocket diaper fan, but the self-agitating insert makes me more inclined to use this one. It's trimmer than I expected from a pocket diaper, but it's also pretty big on little babies. It does seem a bit more cheaply made than say BumGenius, but for the price it's a very good diaper. Comparable quality to Kawaii and GoGreen Pocket diapers
