5 key factors to consider while choosing a cloth diaper for your baby

When you have a baby, you have to make many choices about every small thing. In this blog, we will try making one choice easier for you. Choosing the right reusable diaper (Advanced cloth diaper) for your baby.

Some factors you want to figure out before you choose the cloth diaper

  1. How much of cloth diapering do you intend to do

Some parents prefer to use diapers only during the night-time or nap-time while others prefer to keep them all through the day. Depending on your intention, you will need to figure how many diapers you will need. That will also define the type you want to go for.

  1. Age of your baby

Advanced Cloth Diapers come in 2 main sizes –

One-size: These diapers fit babies from 3-17 kg. They have snaps to adjust size as per your baby’s requirement

For newborn babies, 1-2 month, the one-size diapers may seem a little big. For them, we suggest choosing the newborn size.

Newborn size: These are small size diapers that last the baby till up to 7kg. They are great if you want to cloth diaper your newborn. Newborn diapers also come with size adjustment snaps. You can read more about the newborn diapers here

3. Budget

One of the key benefits of cloth diapering is that it saves you a lot of money. If one chooses to use disposable diapers, you end up spending anywhere around 70-80 thousand rupees. Cloth diapering, on the other hand, can be managed in 10-12 thousand rupees or lesser!

If you want to go even more economical on cloth diapers too, you can choose cover diapers instead of pocket diapers and you can indeed manage your diapering in as less as 5-6 thousand rupees.

  1. Heavy / medium wetter

 Your cloth diapering choice also depends on how heavy wetting your baby is. If your baby is a very heavy wetter, you may want to choose soakers / inserts that are ideal for heavy-wetting babies. Hemp soakers are known to be the most absorbent soakers and you can choose those for your little one if he is a heavy wetter.

You can also choose diapers such as Superbottoms Plus which are ideal for heavy wetters and are known to last good 7-8 hours as well.

  1. Care-giver

Using cloth diapers is easy. However, if you are planning to leave your child in the care of grandparents, nannies, or day-care, you may want to choose diapers that are simplest to use.

With that objective, going for a pocket diaper or Superbottoms Plus All-in-one cloth diapers is ideal. In the pocket diaper, you can stuff the pocket with soakers / inserts once a day post washing and you are good to go.

Making cloth diapers work for you needs the right advice on the choice of diapers. Cloth diapers can be a very cost-effective, however, a wrong choice can discourage you or can turn out to be expensive in the longer run. Diapering is an important aspect of childcare and development. With at least 2 years of your child being spent in diapers, you will want the choice to be right.

5 reasons why cover diapers make great newborn diapers

cover diapers for new born baby

When a new baby is born, her / his body is introduced to the natural surrounding. Out from the protective environment of a mother’s womb, it takes time for baby’s skin to become adjusted to the regular environment. During this time, the skin is extremely delicate and needs a lot of care. When it comes to diapering, the challenge is compounded by the even more sensitive skin in the bum area. The fecal matter also changes skin pH making it prone to rashes and irritation. Diapering a newborn can be therefore tricky.

While traditionally mothers have always trusted only the softest clothes for the purpose in the form of langots or nappy squares, these days diapers are increasingly chosen for their convenience.

We, of course, believe that advanced cloth diapers are a great option for newborn babies because they provide all the convenience of disposable diapers in the goodness of cloth!

Here is a list of 5 reasons why Superbottoms newborn cover diapers are a great diapering choice for new babies –

1. Versatile: Put them on anything!

Cover diapers are extremely versatile. They can be put on soakers / langots / home made pads / pre-folds to impart waterproofing and to contain the mess within.

2. Economical: Save money with covers
New babies poop and pee often, most times without any routine or notice.
Superbottoms cover diaper comes with 2 dry-feel soakers.
So when one soaker is completely soaked / soiled, you can simply remove the soaker and replace with a fresh one if the cover is not soiled.
Thus a few covers and a set of soakers and you are good to go!
Moreover, babies outgrow the newborn diapers in a few months. It is; therefore, wise to keep investment in them minimum. From that point of view, covers make the ideal newborn diapering option.

3. Dry Feel: Dryer bum, lesser rashes!
The soakers that come with Superbottoms newborn covers have a unique fabric layer that imparts the baby’s bum with dry-feel.
This special layer stays in contact with the baby’s bum and passes the urine to the layers below while keeping itself completely dry!
Dryer bum, lesser rashes!

4. Double leak-guards: Keep the runny poops within

5. Adjustable: Great fit for a super comfort
Superbottoms newborn covers come with 3 size options in 1 single diaper.
So it can comfortably fit your baby right from birth till about 3-4 months

Superbottoms plus falls in the category of what are popularly known as All-in-One (AIO) diapers. These diapers are known for their convenience (no stuffing shuffing), just put them on and go!

Difference Between Pocket Diaper and Cover Diaper

What exactly is the difference between a Pocket Diaper and a Cover Diaper? And what is best for my baby?
This is one of the most common questions we come across. Here is a simple, pictorial explanation that you may find useful.
Pocket Diapers
  • Pocket Diapers have a pocket of the dry-feel fabric in which one places the soaker (absorbent pad)
  • Cover Diapers do not have this pocket, instead the dry-feel layer is attached ON the soaker. This soaker is placed inside the cover (Like sanitary napkins are).
So Pocket Diapers have a Pocket, hence they are called ‘Pocket Diapers’ and Cover diapers only cover the soaker hence they are called ‘Cover Diapers’ 🙂
So what is best for your baby?
To know what is best for your baby, you must understand the pros and cons of each.

  • Cover Diapers, since you can replace the wet soaker and reuse the cover, are a little more economical
  • Pocket Diapers, due to overall dry-feel fabric, provide better performance and protection

Pocket diapers need to be washed completely once the soaker is soaked. This because, although the dry-feel layer is dry, urine has passed through it and for hygiene reasons it is best to replace the entire diaper. If you are new to Cloth Diapering, we always recommend starting out with Pocket Diapers. They are simple, great in performance, and will give you a good idea about cloth diapering.

When is it best to go for Cover Diapers?
Go for cover diapers if you are looking for a more economical option or if you want something to go over your nappy pads, homemade nappies, or even padded langots. Cover diapers are thus more versatile than pocket diapers. Many mothers also keep a mixed set of Cover Diapers and Pocket Diapers – Covers for day-time or use at home, and Pockets during nights or on-the-go. However, if you are trying Cloth Diapers for the first time, it is best to start with the most common and popular type, the Pocket Diaper.
