This was an odd little diaper. I got one (what they are now calling the Premium) as a free bonus from an online store -- in orange/yellow. They must have redesigned this diaper since I got mine, because their site lists a bamboo velour inner (mine is microfleece with a cotton/bamboo fleece center) and an extra microfleece layer on the insert (my insert is just hemp/cotton).

This diaper is a side-snapper, which is trim but also confused my poor brain by snapping backwards from the rest of my stash! It also has the pocket opening in front, something only Oh Katy also does (as far as I've seen) and I don't see a real benefit. There is something even weirder about this feature in a side-snapping diaper -- hard to explain, but there is extra floppiness and adjustment at changing time.
Now, the insert. I don't know why people rave about hemp, because in all my experiences with it, it's either no better than cotton/microfiber, or completely useless! Perhaps you need to prep hemp by washing it 122 times before use. I don't know!

One pro of the Babykicks: it made a decent first-training-pants transition diaper. The side snaps help it pull up and down easily, and the cotton inner feels wet so baby learns. So, you see? Not so bad after all. I'm sure it works great for other kiddos!
