Pocket diapers are great for babies who really need a barrier of stay-dry material like fleece or suedecloth to keep them feeling dry. Some babies will do much better with stay-dry and some will do better with natural fibers. It's hard to know what your baby will do better with so I encourage Mamas to try some of both before purchasing a lot of either. Pocket diapers have the added bonus of being very easy to change and therefore make a great daycare diaper. And you can use whatever absorbency you'd like - prefolds, flats, or microfiber inserts - inside the pocket which makes them very customizable!
