Which cloth diaper should you choose?

Which cloth diaper should you choose?

When you're new to cloth diapers, it can be challenging to know what to choose. Today's modern cloth diapers are well-designed and functional, just as easy to put on your child as disposable diapers. Moreover, they are adjustable in size and can be used throughout most of your child's diapering period, from 3 to 17 kg.

 

Below, we provide suggestions for cloth diapers based on three common preferences:

  • Cloth diapers that resemble disposables
  • Cloth diapers that require less washing
  • The most cost-effective cloth diaper option


Cloth diapers resembling disposables

If you're new to cloth diapers and prefer something similar to disposable diapers, we recommend pocket diapers. Pocket diapers have a stay-dry fabric inside that keeps your child feeling dry. The diaper is prepared by stuffing it with cloth inserts and then used just like a disposable diaper, but you wash and reuse it. To simplify diaper changes, you can add disposable liners to the diaper, which catch the waste and can be disposed of.

  • Pocket diapers have an inner fabric that provides a dry feeling
  • Stuffed with absorbent inserts
  • Size-adjustable with Velcro or snaps
  • Washed and reused repeatedly
  • Use disposable liners for easy waste management.


Cloth diapers requiring less washing

If you're aiming to minimize laundry, the Diaper Cover / All-in-One diaper is a great option. This type of cloth diaper has absorbent inserts that can be placed loosely in the diaper, functioning as a "cover." Alternatively, the inserts can be snapped in with buttons to create an "all-in-one" diaper without loose parts. During a diaper change, you can simply replace the inserts and reuse the diaper cover.

  • Diaper Cover / All-in-One diaper acts as a cover for absorbent inserts
  • Size-adjustable with buttons
  • Can be used for multiple changes before washing.


The most cost-effective cloth diaper option

If you're looking for the most budget-friendly choice, the Diaper Cover / All-in-One diaper is also a great pick. You can use the diaper as a waterproof cover for multiple changes. For the inserts, you can opt for flat diapers, which are a cost-effective alternative. These flat diapers resemble sheets and can be folded to fit inside the cover.

  • Diaper Cover / All-in-One diaper acts as a cover for flat diapers
  • Size-adjustable with buttons
  • Can be used for multiple changes before washing.


So, which cloth diaper should you choose?

Consider your child's needs and your household situation. The key is to experiment and find what works best for you.
