Cloth Diapering Basics 101 – A Guide to the Modern Mom 1
Everything You Need to Know About Different Types of Cloth Diapers, Selection, Usage and Material

The modern-day cloth diapers are convenient, economic, and environment friendly. They have unique designs and come in a variety of stylish colors that are easy to use and fit well on babies.

Different materials are used in the manufacturing of cloth diapers. Some are responsible for absorbency, others are waterproof, and a few are utilized to provide extra comfort.

Waterproof Layers (PUL or TPU fabrics) – All-in-Two Pocket diapers and all-in-one diapers typically have an outer waterproof layer that encircles the moist absorbent inserts. Prefold and fitted diapers lack this convenient perk.

Absorbency layers – All diapers need to have quality absorbent layers that can hold a large amount of liquid without feeling too annoying for babies. Bamboo diaper inserts have been gaining huge attention, mainly because of their softness, impeccable absorbency and bacteria fighting.

5 Types of Cloth diapers

Prefold cloth diapers – This is the simplest type of cloth diaper, and the closest to traditional forms. It is a rectangular piece of absorbent cloth, that can be fashioned around babies, anyway it fits.

Pocket diapers – This is a very innovative design of diaper cloth that adds a semi dry layer that stays in contact with the baby’s skin. The outer layer is waterproof, to keep the moisture from leaking. Then, there is a sandwiched absorptive layer that is sandwiched between the two water-repelling layers.

Fitted diapers – Fitted cloth diapers are very similar to disposable diapers. They have elastic bands around the legs and waist, which means that the wastes would not spill out. It still needs a waterproof shell to keep the wetness from spreading.

Hybrid cloth diapers (All-in-two) – Hybrid system is as simplest of all. Hybrid cloth diapers are also easy to put on and take off. Simply secure the insert with the snap to the waterproof outer shell, and then fasten the diaper to the baby. When the diaper is wet, undo the cloth diaper, easily remove the insert, and replace it with a new one. The soaker can be switched several times while the shells can be worn two or three times before washing them.

All-in-one cloth diapers – This is an upgrade from the pocket diapers, but instead of inserting and removing the absorbent into and from the pocket, this diaper has all the layers sewn in together. It often fits well around the baby’s waist and legs.
