I received this product free for review. All opinions remain my own.
Coquí Baby was founded by midwestern-US parents, Steve and Renee, with a vision of “a happier planet, happier families, and happier babies.” If his reaction to being put in a disposable is any proof, cloth diapers definitely make Cub a happier baby. I am proud of my contribution (or lack thereof) to the planet by choosing cloth diapers, and the money saved and the community gained by choosing fluff has made me a happier Mama.
Coquí Baby diapers, named after a Puerto Rican tree frog, are a one-size pocket diaper. The diaper is designed to fit from 7- 40 lbs, and comes in your choice of PUL or minky exterior. The interior is stay-dry fleece.
The diaper comes with two microfibre inserts:
Coquí’s diapers are conscientiously manufactured in China.
What I love about our Coquí Baby diaper:
- The contoured smaller insert is great for a more comfortable fit;
- Elasticized pocket opening keeps inserts in place and prevents leaks at the back waistband;
- The diaper is cut generously and fits well on Cub, but when snapped to the lowest rise, I’m impressed by how small the leg opening becomes: can’t wait to try it on the newbie this summer!
- Plenty of waist snaps, allowing plenty of room to grow in terms of width.
- Roomy pocket that’s easy to stuff, and it opens at the back!
What I love less about our Coquí Baby diaper:
- Microfiber: not my favourite insert option. I’d love to see a hemp, bamboo or cotton option.
- Overseas manufacturing: In my perfect world, everything would be made close to home. However, the choice to manufacture in China helps keep these diapers very affordable. (Currently on sale for $12-$14.)
While not revolutionary in terms of design or features, the Coquí Baby Hero diaper performed well for us and I love the “tribe of like-minded parents” the company is promoting.

I’d like to extend a special thanks to Coquí for sending me an extra diaper for me to donate to Cloth for a Cause.
Gotta pay the bills...
