Peapods are an economical nappy with a three folded insert (prefold) that sits inside a pocket cover.

For more information about Peapods cloth nappies, see our introduction. We’ve also got some great advice for getting started with cloth nappies.

I’m liking

For a full nappy with reasonable absorbency, the Peapod is cost-effective, at $19.95 per nappy. You could be a fully time cloth nappy user washing every other day for under $600 (there are three different sizes though so this might be optimistic) . They are a simple system, with only one insert, though night boosters are available. The inserts are a bamboo/cotton mix so they are pretty absorbent.

Things that made me go hmmmm

The fit around the leg could be better. They seem to gape a bit making them a bit prone to leaks.
The insert doesn’t dry exceptionally fast.

The conclusion

The Peapod would suit those looking for a basic nappy system. The Peapod is a reasonably no-frills, simple, affordable option.
