The most convenient and environmentally friendly way to diaper your baby is with cloth diapers. Parents can customise these diapers to their baby's needs by adding extra inserts to increase absorbency. Additionally, cloth diapers can be customised with different types of inserts.
You can make informed diapering decisions if you understand the various insert options before stocking up on cloth diapers. Therefore, we have compiled a list of the most popular insert options and their benefits and drawbacks.
Choosing between cloth diaper inserts, doublers, boosters, and soakers can be confusing if you're new to cloth diapering. In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about different baby diaper inserts and their benefits.
Different Materials Used to Make Diaper Inserts
The most traditional diapering material, cotton, is a good choice for diaper inserts. Accessibility makes it convenient. Furthermore, it dries quickly and is gentle on the baby's skin. A soft, breathable diaper from cotton is ideal for light to average wetters.
Many cloth diapering parents prefer hemp inserts. The diaper inserts are made from a blend of hemp (for absorbency) and cotton (for softness). Their functionality is enhanced by this particular material combination.
Heavy wetters benefit from hemp's ability to hold a lot of liquid. Hemp inserts absorb a lot and hold onto what they absorb, so compression leaks aren't an issue.
In particular, parents with problems with microfiber and cotton inserts swear by bamboo.
Another good option for heavy wetters is bamboo, as it is extremely thirsty and holds onto moisture. Hard water users will appreciate its lack of buildup or foul odours.
