Microfleece is another common term for stay-dry fabrics. Stay-dry fabrics are typically comprised of a fleece side and a microfiber side, thus the term "microfleece". The stay-dry fabrics top no-pill fleece layer quickly pulls in the moisture and wicks it away from your baby’s bum, while the thirsty layers of microfiber underneath act quickly to absorb it. (Note: Microfiber should never be put directly on your little one's skin to avoid irritation). Stay-Dry fabrics offer our Regular Absorbency, which is enough absorbency for most babies.
Birds Eye Bamboo is a fabric that is made from bamboo and cotton blend. This fabric is made of a repetitive woven pattern that resembles diamonds, or more commonly thought, the eye of a bird.

There are various advantages to bamboo viscose including: moisture wicking, antibacterial, and hypoallergenic properties.

Hemp is a natural that is able to hold quite a bit of liquid. However, hemp is very slow to absorb compared to other fabric types. That is why you will usually see a cotton and hemp blend. When mixing cotton and hemp together you get a final fabric that is more durable and very absorbent.
While there is slightly more of a learning curve when it comes to snaps, they are a great options due to their durability!
Snaps will not wear down over time - even after multiple washes! No need to worry about them getting caught or snagged on anything else that may be in the wash. You will never have to worry about your little one pulling off snap diaper. Since each snap is tight, it makes it difficult for your little one to undo.

Some cloth diapers need to be prepped before use. This is very common with natural fibers as they need to be washed several times before they're absorbent enough for use.

For all cloth diaper products, it’s always recommended to wash anything new before use, to remove any dust from manufacturing and shipping.
