Cocalo Perfect Bum thoughts?

Anyone used these? They look small to me (like, thin) but they're on super clearance at my Babies R Us and I have a gift card. It's not a brand I'm familiar with. They also have a 50 pack of disposable inserts which I will need when my sister watches the baby (not yet born!) that is less than $6 so that's tempting...

The design of the covers looks uncomfortable to me. Don't they have that circular elastic pocket thingy? I wouldn't want bunched covered elastic pressed up against my tender diaper area... Don't know about the disposable inserts, though I'm sure they could be used with about any cover.

I kinda liked the one I got, but DS outgrew it before we used it more than a couple times and I just never went back for more. I did see the clearance price and was tempted, but I really like my current system and don't need diapers, especially sized ones.

One thing I did not like was that the care instructions were so different than how all other diapers ate cared for. If I remember correctly. It was cold or warm washes only, but I'd have to look. I remember thinking forget that, they're going in with the regular diaper laundry! It makes me think they might not be as sturdy as other diapers.

I have one, same as others it never really seemed to fit right even though it seemed like a good affordable diaper. The fabric is more of a taffeta than a PUL and it did have to be laundered differently so that was what really kept me from reaching for it. Performance wise it wasn't bad, comes with a MF trifold insert that was absorbent and I used my prefolds in it, but it always looked baggy so I was glad I only bought one.

I don't have the actual diaper, but I am considering getting the trifold inserts for DD's gDiapers and for stuffing in pockets.

We bought one when we were expecting DD when we first decided to cloth diaper. It was jean print and super cute. That said, we hated it. Uncomfortable fit, awkward pocket, strange gussets. I would not waste money on them again.
