Cloth diaper covers are used over flat diapers, prefold diapers, and fitted diapers. Diaper covers wrap around the baby and secure with hook and loop or snaps for easy use. Each diaper cover can be used several times before washing with a simple wipe down between uses.
At Nicki’s Diapers, we’re a parent-focused diaper brand that provides quality cloth diapers for beginners and experienced parents alike to help families save money and do our part to save the planet. As part of our mission, we make sure you can find the best diaper covers at affordable prices. Diaper covers play an important role in the cloth diapering process. While all in one or all in two diapers have a liner built in, parents who choose to use flat, prefold, or fitted cloth diapers need an outer waterproof layer to keep any diaper moisture contained to complete their system. Cloth diaper covers do just that, while looking great and being great for the environment! This is why reusable diapers are loved by families.
We offer different sizes of baby diaper covers, meaning you can use them from newborn all the way until they start potty training. And with the options available, you can build the perfect diaper system for your needs. You can use any of Nicki’s Diapers diaper covers with different cloth diapers like flat diapers, prefolds, and fitted cloth diapers.
You can combine any of the above options with cloth diaper inserts to meet the needs of your little one. Once you have all of the absorbent layers you need you are good to then wrap it all securely in a diaper cover. Diaper covers wrap around the baby. You can secure them with a hook and loop closures, snap closures, or even pull up style so you don’t have to deal with pins.
Cloth diaper covers have different styles and materials to suit your needs. You can choose the snap, hook and loop, or pull on diaper covers based on your preference. One reason parents love cloth diaper covers is that they are economical. If cared for the right way, they can last through multiple children. When paired with options such as flats or prefold diapers, diaper covers are among the most economical option for cloth diapering.
Also, there’s the environmentally friendly factor. In a world where climate change is a hot topic, you can reduce waste and help save our planet with waterproof diaper covers.
Another benefit of our wide selection of diaper covers is the variety. We have many diaper cover types and accessories in diverse sizes, colors, and prints. So, no matter what you’re looking for, we have a diaper cover for you.
Nicki's Diapers offers two distinct types of waterproof diaper covers
Choosing a baby diaper cover can be hard. So, we recommend you start with your budget. First, find out how much you’re willing to spend on diaper covers monthly or yearly. Then, decide if you like synthetic fiber or prefer only natural materials. Your baby’s age is another crucial point when choosing waterproof diaper cover. It should be the right size and fit snug to avoid leaks until they're ready to graduate to training pants. Also, consider whether you need the baby diaper cover for daytime use, nighttime use, or both. Finally, try out different styles to find what works for you and your baby. Every baby is different and there’s a chance that you need to try a few options before you find the perfect diaper cover.
Always consider the cloth diaper fabric before using it. Diaper covers are made with Polyurethane Laminate (PUL)/Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) (a polyester with a waterproof interior) and wool. Most of the covers in the market are PUL, and they are easy to take care of and come in adorable prints and colors.
Another benefit of PUL is that it is antimicrobial, stain/fade resistant, hardy, and affordable. Therefore, we recommend starting with this material. Wool baby diaper covers are great but more expensive than PUL and require special care. You’ll need to take special care when washing them, but it shouldn’t deter you if you feel like wool diaper covers are the best option for your family.
No matter the fabric you choose, ensure you use the right diaper cream for cloth diapers to protect your baby’s skin from rashes. While cloth diapers tend to be better about preventing diaper rash, the wrong rash cream can be absorbed into the cloth diaper, reducing effectiveness and staining the diapers.
