I would never reuse a pocket as a pocket! I forgot diapers so I took the wet insert out and laid a few cloth wipes on top of the suedecloth in the BG and used it that way!

Re: "Reusing" pocket dipes before washing...

If I want to re-use a pocket diaper, I use it as a cover over a prefold or fitted. Today being St. Patrick's Day, that's what I'm doing with my two St. Pat's WAHM pockets on each girl.

If it's being used as a pocket, the fabric of the pocket will be getting peed on and therefor the whole thing needs changed.

Re: "Reusing" pocket dipes before washing...

I like to use my pockets as covers with a padfolded flat. I just lay the flat on the surface of the fleece or the suedecloth of the pocket. If it doesn't get too wet I can let it air out and reuse it a couple of times.

I don't do that too often because I have PLENTY of covers but I do like it for padfolding because then PUL isn't touching DD's skin and the flat doesn't slip around so much.

THis reminded me of a review I saw a few days ago on a diaper store site, someone gave fuzzi bunz one size 2 stars because they couldn't reuse the diaper because it kept getting dirty, and said "why would they give you two inserts if you can't reuse it." It made me laugh.
