DEPR: Cloth Diaper Inserts

Diaper inserts are what make cloth pocket diapers absorbent. When combined with a pocket diaper, you have a full cloth diapering system with a lot of different options, each of which has its advantage and uses.

Cotton cloth diaper inserts, also available in organic cotton, are very absorbent and often blended with other fibers. Hemp diaper inserts are more absorbent than cotton, very durable, trim fitting, and have natural anti-bacterial/anti-microbial properties. Microfiber diaper inserts are a polyester blend fabric that absorbs very quickly and dries quickly, while also being affordable and durable. Microfiber should not be placed directly against baby's skin as it will dry out baby's skin and leave it chapped. Microfiber inserts should be topped with a stay-dry material, natural fiber, or stuffed in a pocket. Bamboo diaper inserts are more absorbent than cotton, very durable, have natural anti-bacterial/anti-microbial properties, and are super soft while being a renewable resource that's naturally biodegradable. Finally stay dry diaper inserts can be any material of insert that is topped with a stay-dry material. Stay-dry materials such as fleece or suede cloth wick moisture away from baby's skin, keeping them feeling dry.
Inserts come in many different combinations of these fabrics, many different sizes, and many different thicknesses. Nicki's Diapers is sure to have the type that works best for your baby.
