A pocket diaper consists of two separate pieces. The pocket (sometimes referred to as the sleeve) is the piece that fits around the baby and looks like a diaper, with elasticized legs, a closure around the waist, and a waterproof outer material. Sewn to the waterproof outer layer of the pocket is a soft layer of "stay-dry" fabric such as microfleece or microsuede that sits next to baby's skin. Either or both ends of the pocket have an opening to allow the insert to be stuffed inside.
When the diaper is changed, the insert should be pulled out of the pocket and both pieces tossed in the diaper pail. (In other words, the pocket should not be re-used with a fresh insert).
