Cloth Diapering on a Vacation

Cloth Diapering on a Vacation

by Dimple Amesar | Oct, 10, 2017 | Cloth Diapering

When we went for our first vacation with baby Glen, I took it as an adventure to exclusively cloth diaper during our vacation. We went on ten days holidays to Goa which happens to be our natives. I was not confident to be honest to cloth diaper during all these days. I was sceptical and I didn’t wanted this holiday to be hectic for me especially because Glen was pooping frequently during his teething phase. But this didn’t stop us from being exclusively cloth diapering parents. Here is what we did and how we did.

Our Stash:

We took a stash of :

  • 6 Superbottoms Pocket diapers
  • 4 Superbottoms cover diapers
  • 2 Superbottoms Plus
  • Some more pockets and covers for back up and lots of extra dry feel soakers (around 7)
  • 1 Superbottoms wetbag

What did we use:

Major part of our days went with Superbottoms cover diapers (we barely used 2 covers and 5 soakers a day). Sometimes pockets too. Superbottoms Plus worked great for the night. The best part was that we were in a village for 4 days and we got great sunlight. It was too hot during the day and the diapers dried in less than four hours and I realised I carried way too much. We didn’t need too many diapers because I wasn’t sure of the climate and the place we will be staying, so didn’t wanted to risk it. It was totally worth it because the next four days, we stayed beach side and that’s when we needed so much stash. The diapers took more than half a day to dry here. Moreover, Glen had loose motion throughout our journey from day 1. We used reusable liners most of the times. When we were visiting places, disposable diapers were of great help.

How we did this:

We rinsed the diapers as soon as they were off the bum. Whenever we were out, travelling or sightseeing, we stuffed the used diapers in a wetbag. They took care of the smell and wetness and we didn’t have to worry one bit about it. The diapers were washed the next morning and line dried. I would hand rinse them under a wash basin and soak them in detergent and water in a bucket. Read – Common Mistakes in Washing Cloth Diapers.

Never thought I could do it. But once I did,
We have always exclusively cloth diapered in all our vacations.

Top 5 Cloth Diaper Myths Busted

by Superbottoms | Sep 25, 2017 | Cloth Diapering

Cloth Diapering is a fairly vast concept. As new parents, we are bound to get lost in our set of confusions about cloth diapering. Here are few cloth diaper myths that we have busted.

Myth#1 : “Its Gross”

No. It isn’t!

Cloth diapering is pretty easy. All you need is a decent stash and a good wash routine. You need not wash the diapers separately. You can wash them with other clothes in a washing machine. Our parents have successfully cloth diapered even in vacations. Read on further here to get some tips.

Once the baby poops, you can scoop off the poop using a jet spray and rinse in a wash basin. Store them on a dry bucket or wetbag till the laundry time. See, didn’t we tell you its easy.

Myth#2: It affects the milestones of babies’

This is another biggest myth.

Cloth diapers, in no way affect the growth and milestones of babies. Every baby is different and they take their own time in turning, crawling, sitting or walking.

Myth#3: Isn’t it old fashioned?

Yes, our grandmas did use cloth on us because those days disposables diapers weren’t really an option. But the concept of cloth diapers have now been revamped and they are this generation’s modern cloth diapers ☺ want to know how? Read how get your babies the leak proof cloth diapers.

Myth#4: Cloth diapers are expensive

When you compare the cost of 1 cloth diaper to that of 1 disposable diaper, cloth diapers do cost more. However, that cloth diaper can be used over and over again, unlike the disposable, which you have to continue purchasing. Here is a handy guide to show you the cost of cloth vs. disposable over time.

You need 4000+ diapers are needed on an average from birth till potty training. The price per diaper on an average is Rs10. Thus, the total money spent on disposables is not less than Rs40000. Never thought this far right?

3 Steps to Get the Right Fit with Cloth Diapers

3 Steps to Get the Right Fit with Cloth Diapers

by Superbottoms | Sep 05, 2017 | Cloth Diaper

Getting the right cloth diaper fit for your baby is very crucial in itself because no mother would want the cloth diapers to leak! For that you need to ensure that you have put on the cloth diaper properly. You just have to follow these important 3 steps to have the right cloth diaper fit for you baby.

Step 1 – Resize the diaper:

A one size cloth diaper typically fits babies from 5kgs to 17kgs. Resizing the diaper is a one time thing and you need not do it again and again unless your baby falls out of the weight category. For a baby weighing 4-5kgs, using the lowest rise setting is apt. Use the medium rise for babies weighing 5-8kgs, large rise for 8-11kgs and the extra large for 12kgs to 17kgs. This also depends on how chubby or lean your baby is. Read more about cloth diapering here.

Step 2 – Place the soaker:

Stuff the soaker inside the pocket diaper ensuring that the soaker lays flat inside the pocket and is not folded anyhow. Incase of a cover diaper, place the soaker on top of the cover. The Superbottoms Plus already has a stitched soaker. You may fold the excess part of soaker while using the diaper on smaller size. An additional snap is provided to attach the booster.

Step 3 – Put the diaper on the baby.

Make sure there are no gaps around the thighs. The diaper should be snug enough. Look up for some videos here to get a right fit. Watch now!

If you are using a Superbottoms pocket diaper or cover diaper with a microfiber soaker, change it every 2-4 hours depending on how much your baby pees. A Superbottoms Plus usually lasts for 4-5 hours during the day time and about 8+ hours during the night.

Tips for Cloth Diapering in Rainy Season

Tips for Cloth Diapering in Rainy Season

by Superbottoms | July 31, 2017 | Cloth Diapering

Rains are beautiful. We Indians wait eagerly for the rainy season to arrive. That beautiful fragrance of the mud, the lovely view of greenery everywhere is truly a delightful sight. We can never get enough of it. But with great rains, comes great responsibility. With dampness everywhere, drying cloth diapers and other clothes seem to be an endless task. We fear the rains and cloth diapering in rainy season. But it’s not as difficult as it looks like.

Here are some great tips to use cloth diapers successfully during the rains:

Tip 1: Use the right cloth diapers: Pockets and cover diapers come with regular microfiber soakers. They dry in no time. Using them for day time and using all in ones for night time helps.

Tip 2: Have a decent stash: Have enough number of diapers according to your needs and keeping in mind the wash routine. Consider having a bigger stash of cover and pocket diapers with some extra diaper inserts.

Tip 3: Change frequently: During winter and rainy season, babies tend to pee more than usual. Changing frequently is an excellent idea as well as more hygienic. This is why we recommend having a decent stash.

Tip 4: Skin care:  Skin care is not really a tedious task when you are using cloth diapers. Wipe the baby’s bottoms with a moist cloth and pat dry. Apply coconut oil before putting on a fresh diaper. There is absolutely no need to use rash creams or talcum powder. Coconut oil is the best moisturiser for babies.

Tip 5: Wash the diapers everyday: Try not to wait for alternate days to wash cloth diapers if you do not have a sufficient stash. Washing them every day is better for the durability of diapers, especially during the rains and so that you have enough for the next day. Washing cloth diapers in a washing machine is also better than hand washing them because machine wash gives a good agitation to cloth diaper and the diaper inserts

Tip 6: Drying tips: Spin dry the diaper inserts as well as the diapers. Line dry them once done. Keep it under the fan overnight and tadaa…see the magic next day J

Tip 7: Use homemade flats and suede sleeves: The most economical way to use cloth diapers with a limited stash is to use homemade flats. You can make them by cutting cotton saree or old cotton t-shirts into huge squares, pad fold them and stuff them inside suede sleeves. Use this with cover diapers and see how easy it is. Flats, covers and suede sleeves also dry fastest as compared to any other diaper or diaper inserts. Suede sleeves are tiny pillow cover like thing which is made of suede fabric. This fabric is known to keep the baby’s bottoms dry even after being peed on. You can stuff homemade flats or any other non stay dry soaker and use it with cover to get absolute dryness.

So that’s all, isn’t cloth diapering in rainy season easier than what we promised before we began this blog?

3 Most Popular Types of Cloth Diapers

3 Most Popular Types of Cloth Diapers

by Superbottoms | July 18, 2017 | Cloth Diaper

Cloth diapers are excellent choice of replacement to disposable diapers. They do the job of disposable diapers but in a much better way. These diapers are completely washable and reusable. A new parent is bound to get confused with the numerous types of cloth diapers. Hence, this blog talks about the top 3 most common types of cloth diapers which are easiest to use.

They come in two sizes: The new born size diapers that fit babies from 2.5kgs to 4-5 (sometimes even 7kgs) and the one size diapers which fit babies from 5kgs to 17kgs.

So the 3 main types of Cloth Diapers are:

Pocket diapers:

  • The pocket style diapers are the most popular style of cloth diapers and don’t require any additional covers
  • A pocket style diaper has a pocket opening between the outer waterproof shell (or cover) and the inner layer that touches baby’s skin
  • You can place the absorbent insert (soaker) inside this pocket opening. The pocket diapers usually have suede lining on top which keeps the baby’s bottoms dry overall
  • A pocket diaper comes with one microfiber soaker. The advantage of pocket diapers is that it keeps the baby dry overall since it has suede layer on its entire shell
  • Another advantage of them is that one can very well use homemade flats (made of old cotton t-shirts, cotton sarees, dhotis, etc. cut into square)
  • These can be padfolded and stuffed inside the pocket diaper. Use it with a hemp booster and they will surprise you with the amount of absorbency it has
  • Pocket diapers are great for day time use. They last for 2-4 hours depending on how much your baby pees
  • Once used, the cloth diaper soaker must go for a wash. They both are completely machine wash safe

Cover Diapers:

  • Cover diapers are diapers with a waterproof outer shell and removable soakers
  • Cover diapers can be used with dry feel soakers. The soakers have a dry feel layer on top. You can change the soaker and use the same cover
  • They can also be used with the same homemade flats. To add a dry feel, a suede sleeves can be purchased separately
  • Each soaker lasts for about 2-4 hours here as well depending on how much your baby pees
  • Once used, the same cover can be used with a fresh soaker. The shell as well as soaker is washable

All in Ones:

  • All in one type is usually used for medium to heavy wetting babies
  • The all in ones come with a stitched soaker and a detachable one which can be snapped or removed as desired
  • The stitched soaker that touches baby’s bottoms has the dry feel suede layer on top, thus keeping the baby’s bottoms dry.
  • Most all in ones also have a pocket for additional booster. The overall diaper shell also has a dry feel layer
  • They are an excellent night time diapering solution for most medium to heavy wetting babies and are known to last for 8+ hours overnight. One can also use it for day time by removing the detachable booster

Among some Indian Cloth Diaper brands, Superbottoms is one of the most popular and considered as a full proof day time as well as night time diapering solutions. Each Superbottoms Cloth Diaper and soaker is completely washable and reusable. The same one sized diaper can be used from birth till potty training. They are also known to survive 300+ washes!

Superbottoms believes in simplifying cloth diapering for new parents by providing a range of pocket diapers, cover diapers and all in ones.

Common Mistakes in Washing Cloth Diapers

Common Mistakes in Washing Cloth Diapers

by Superbottoms | July 18, 2017 | Cloth Diapers

Here are the 5 most common mistakes moms make while washing cloth diapers –

Washing cloth diapers in less water or less detergent or more detergent:

Using the right amount of detergent is extremely vital. Using less detergent or less water will not make the cloth diapers clean enough for the next use. Using more detergent will lead to detergent built up leading to problems in absorbency. The durability of soakers also depends on your wash routine

Not washing the cloth diapers regularly:

Not washing the used cloth diapers for more than 2 days affects its performance in the long run. While washing everyday is highly recommended, washing once in every two days is also fine.

Washing the cloth diapers gently:

Washing cloth diapers in the washing machine makes them cleaner with less effort. They can be even spin dried. However, if you are washing them by hand, it is important to wash them with good agitation so that the pee is removed completely and the diapers are fresh enough for the next use. They don’t need a gentle wash. Do not use brush on them. You may use a tooth brush once in a while to scoop out the poop properly (do that gently though).

Using disinfectants like Dettol:

Dettol is not recommended on cloth diapers. The additives on dettol can cling to the fabric and cause irritation. In order to sanitise cloth diapers, sun drying them is the best option. Also read –  Stink in your cloth diapers?

Choosing the wrong detergents:

To wash diapers it is important to avoid the use of liquid detergents and soap bars. Liquids contain softeners and additives which are not recommended. While soaps leave residue which leads to detergent built up. You can use any main stream detergents which doesn’t have fragrances, softeners and additives. For that matter, surf excel, Tide Plus Original and Rustic Art little laundry is recommended.

5 Most Common Mistakes when it comes to Cloth Diapering

5 Most Common Mistakes when it comes to Cloth Diapering

by Superbottoms | July 18, 2017 | Cloth Diapering

A new Cloth Diapering mom is bound to get lost in the dos and don’ts that cloth diapering needs. They are not really as complicated as people tend to make it. We as new mothers tend to go with the flow and give up soon considering that it is too tough to handle. But before you start with cloth diapering make sure you have chosen the right cloth diaper for your baby.

It always better to consult the support team of the cloth diaper brands before choosing a cloth diaper. Buying a diaper blindfolded just because every second person has been telling or appreciating its type doesn’t make it full proof. Every baby is different. So are their needs. A baby who poops once in two days can happily use an all in one diaper or a pocket diaper. But for a baby who poops 3+ times a day will need cover diapers for its own economical benefits.

Cloth Diapering Mistake #1:

Not understanding the basic concept:

Cloth Diapering has some really basic concepts that one needs to understand before getting into its depths. They are much different than cloth nappies. Cloth nappies need to be changed after every pee. Cloth diapers on the other hand are eligible enough to soak pee for 2-12 hours depending on the type of cloth diaper it is. Modern Cloth diapers and cloth nappies are thus not the same. They are completely washable and reusable.

Cloth diapers have soakers (also known as inserts) that need to be inserted or placed on the diaper. They are the ones that do the major job of absorbing pee. The other important part of the modern cloth diaper is the outer shell. This is made of a high quality PUL which allows air to pass but not pee thus making them waterproof, breathable and leak proof diapers. Reading the instructions leaflet before using them helps a ton.

Cloth Diapering Mistake#2:

Expecting cloth diapers to look like disposables:

Disposables are very thin and narrow because the chemical crystals inside swell up when wet. Cloth diapers do not change shape when wet, so are designed to put absorbency where it is needed. This will not cause any discomfort to baby. In fact, for babies who have hips that are “out” from their delivery, doctors recommend double-diapering so that the thickness between the legs will put them in the froggy position in order for the hips to go back into place. You will cause problems for your baby by putting her into tight-fitting diapers, sleepers, or baby carriers that position the legs straight down. Even doctors recommend that babies should have froggy legs (legs spread wide apart) instead of straight legs.

P.S: Cloth diapers look more attractive and cute on babies bum.

Cloth Diapering Mistake #3:

Not prepping the cloth diapers properly and improper wash cycle:

This is the one of the most important part. Some cloth diaper soakers/inserts need some basic prepping. Natural fabrics like organic bamboo cotton needs to be prepped before using them full fledged. Prepping is nothing but the process of washing diapers a few numbers of times in order to prepare the cloth diapers to be fully absorbent. They become fully absorbent after 8-10 washes. But that does not mean you can use it only after washing them so many times. They can be used after the first wash for short naps. Washing cloth diapers also does not mean just rinsing them, it means having a complete wash cycle.

Use appropriate detergent and water to wash your cloth diapers. Use detergents that are free of additives, fragrances and softeners, for e.g. Surf Excel, Tide Plus and Rustic Art little laundry. DO not use soap, liquid detergents, dettol etc on cloth diapers. Take a look at common mistakes in washing cloth diapers here >>

Cloth Diapering Mistake #4:

Using talcum powder or rash creams:

This again is one of the most common mistakes that most parents make when it comes to Cloth Diapering. First of all, cloth diapers do not cause rashes unless the diaper is not been changed timely or not cleaned when pooped. There absolutely is no need to use a rash cream or powder. They affect the absorbency of the cloth diapers and also cause skin irritation. You may use coconut oil generously between every change. Coconut oil is the best thing on their bottoms as they keep their skin moisturised.

Cloth Diapering Mistake# 5:

Not getting the right fit:

A cloth diaper, too loose or too tight will give leak issues. Getting the right fit is very important. There should be no gaps on the crotch area. The elastics should be on the crease of the legs like that of underwear. The rise setting should be done according to the weight of the baby. Do note that slight elastic marks are absolutely normal. They go away in 15-20 minutes.

Cloth diapering is easy–just keep baby in a dry diaper, keep a very simple wash routine every day. Read our Beginner’s Guide To Cloth Diapering.

Get your Babies the Leak Proof Cloth Diapers!

by Superbottoms | Jun 30, 2017 | Cloth Diaper

Leaking diapers are a biggest turn off to new parents. This is one of the reasons why they are frustrated with disposable diapers even though they provide them with convenience of use and throw. A lot of parents have high expectations from diapers. The disposable diapers are very expensive in the long run and hence the parents expect them to last overnight. But, well the sad part is that they don’t. Rather they end up leaking in the middle of the night most of the times and the baby gets up and screams due to discomfort. A successful overnight leak free diaper is every parent’s desire. We as parents are already exhausted with running our daily errands. Changing a leaked diaper and a wet bed sheet in the middle of the night is the last thing that we would want to do.

Why do Disposable Diaper leak?

Disposable diapers are made of chemicals called as Sodium Polycrylate. This chemical is responsible for converting pee into gel crystals and thereby absorbs them all. But once they are full, the leaks are bound to occur.

The leakage issue doubles up if the baby is a side sleeper or a tummy sleeper. The stuff inside disposable diapers tends to shift towards one side in case of a side sleeper. The tape style diapers will give tummy leaks if the baby is a tummy sleeper and even their clothes get wet due to such leaks.

But are Disposable Diapers the only option? Is there any alternative? These questions are frequently asked by new parents.

Well the answer to this is yes, there is an alternative of Cloth Diapers.

Review – Why I chose Superbottoms Cloth Diapers for my baby

Review – Why I chose Superbottoms Cloth Diapers for my baby

by Dimple Amesar | Jun 15, 2017 | Cloth Diaper


When I became a mother, the one thing that bothered me the most was spending sleepless nights changing the Cloth Nappies. I would set an alarm of every hour to get up and check if my new born has peed or pooped. He has been a super heavy wetter right from Day 7. I would forever look tired changing him because my family won’t allow me to use Disposables for obvious reasons.

A lot of us are aware that disposable diapers have chemicals in them that causes rashes on the delicate skin of babies. These chemicals that convert pee into gel are not magic gel crystals but toxic agents. There is really no magic in them that is claimed by the TV commercials. Also a very few of us know that every disposable diaper that we throw in the bin stays on the landfills for years together. Well at least for 250-500 years. Shocking and disappointing; isn’t it? Disposable Diapers and Sanitary napkins contribute majorly to the landfills. I of course as a new first time mother had no idea about this. Frankly speaking, I was too ignorant or rather too busy to understand motherhood. In fact, the concept of Cloth Diapering was not even known to me.

It is extremely unfortunate that there is no awareness on Cloth Diapers among new parents. So when I was introduced to Cloth Diapers, I found it hard to digest that something made of cloth is so absorbent in nature and at the same time keeps my baby’s bottoms dry.

I had conveniently started using disposable diapers against all odds when my baby was one month old, knowing not what I am doing to my baby and to the environment. At the same time, I kept using disposable sanitary napkins when I was menstruating. One fine day I got horrible rashes using the sanitary napkins. This turned out to be an eye opener. I read more and found out that the contents of sanitary napkins and disposable cloth diapers are the same. If I can get rashes using them for just a week, how would my baby feel being under plastic day in and day out. I immediately picked up my smartphone and started researching for alternatives. I bumped into various cloth diaper brands across amazon and first cry. Some were so inexpensive that I could not understand the quality of brands. The reviews of users did not convince me in buying them. On the other hand, some brands were so expensive that I did not find them pocket friendly. Some cloth diaper brands like Thirsties, Grovia did grab my attention but the price discouraged me from buying them.

I then came across this beautiful brand called Superbottoms. Its mesmerising prints immediately grabbed my attention. I ordered a couple of them and had a chat on whatsapp with the mompreneur and she made me understand the entire concept and also introduced me to the basic concept of cloth diapering. She handled the worries of a new mother patiently. Since then, there has been no looking back. It has been 9 months of using cloth diapers from superbottoms and its performance still amazes me. Each morning, we wake up with happy, leak free, dry and rash free bottoms.

So how does this really work? What are cloth diapers and what makes cloth diapers better alternative that disposable diapers?

A lot of my fellow moms ask me these questions.

    Cloth Diapers or Moderns Cloth Diapers are the new age diapering systems that provide all the benefits of disposable diapers.
    A cloth diaper consist of 3 parts:

  1. An outer water-resistant shell
  2. A soaker (pad) that absorbs pee
  3. A dry feel layer on top
    Key features of cloth diapers:

  • Water resistant: the outer shell of the diaper is water resistant. It won’t leak unless the soaker has no more place to absorb any more pee. Even if it leaks, the baby will not feel wetness due to the suede layer on top
  • Suede layer: this layer provides a dry feel to baby’s bottoms even when it is peed on.
  • Washable and Reusable: these diapers are 100% washable and reusable. Each diaper and soaker is durable enough to last 300+ washes. I have a lot from my very first order and it works absolutely amazing.
  • Economical: the money spent on Cloth Diapers is a one-time investment. I remember spending 4000 a month on baby diapers. This has been eliminated since the time I invested in Cloth Diapers.
  • Non-Toxic: this is my most favourite feature. Cloth Diapers are made of cloth and does not have any chemicals unlike disposable diapers.
  • Longer Absorbency: Superbottoms Plus has been my all night saviour. It lasts for 10+ hours on my heavy wetting baby.
  • Hold poop explosion: In my entire one year of motherhood, I have faced various poop blow outs when using disposable diapers. Cloth Diapers hold poop generously and it has saved my efforts of cleaning everything after a poopy baby.
  • Easy Washing: Washing them is as easy as washing other clothes. If pooped, I rinse the poop with a jet spray and store the soiled diapers in a wetbag until it’s time for laundry. I then wash it in the washing machine along with other clothes.
  • Indian Brand: When I decided to start Cloth Diapering, I was keen on supporting Indian Brands. Superbottoms being an Indian Brand fulfilled this expectation of mine too. So if you are looking to buy Cloth Diapers in India, don’t miss to check their site. A lot of my friends residing in US have also ordered from them. They are happy that Superbottoms deliver across the globe and maintains the International quality standards at such affordable price.
  • Environment Friendly: this is my next most favourite feature. I love being environment friendly. I love that I am doing my bit to save Mother Earth

I am busy loving my baby and saving Mother Earth; Are you?
