A mother is judged for every single choice that she makes for her baby. People will judge you, whether you breastfeed or formula feed the baby, whether the baby is chubby or lean, fair or dark, whether you use coconut oil or olive oil, whether you start solids early or late, and similarly, whether you choose to use Cloth diapers or Disposable diapers. This list is never ending. I am sure most of the mothers will agree with me here.
Superbottoms Cover Diapers come really handy for exclusive Cloth Diapering parents. Lets know a bit more about them.
What are Cover Diapers:
Cover Diapers are diapers with a water-resistant outer shell and removable pads. Superbottoms Cloth Diapers provide cover diapers with Microfiber soakers. These soakers come with a dry feel micro-suede layer on top which makes it very safe for baby’s skin. This layers keeps the baby feel dry inspite of urinating on the soaker. Once the pad (also known as soaker or insert) is full, you can change just the pad and reuse the same cover. Most parents prefer rotating between 2 covers. So if cover#1 is used, it is kept to air dry and meanwhile Cover#2 is used with a fresh soaker. In the next change, the first cover can be used with another fresh soaker. However do note to use a washed soaker after every change. The Cover can be reused without washing but the soaker shouldn’t.
What makes Cover Diapers ideal for Day time?
- They are very versatile: They can be put on any other diapers too such as nappy pads, homemade flats, prefolds (diapers that are made by tying around a super absorbent cloth around the baby. For eg: Hemp Prefolds
- They are more economical: For parents who cloth diaper their babies round the clock, Superbottoms Cover diapers are the most economical option. Just get a pair of covers and a bunch of soakers and you are good to go for the entire day for the entire diapering stage of baby. Pretty economical; isn’t it?
- Dry Feel Layer: As mentioned earlier, the Superbottoms Cover diaper comes with Microfiber soakers with a dry feel layer on top, thus keeping the baby’s bum dry and rash free
- Adjustable size: The new born size diaper fits babies from new born till they are 7kgs or so (so till about 5-6 months atleast). The one size diapers fit babies from 5kgs till 17kgs (so till the baby is 2-2.5 years old). The diapers have snaps to adjust and resize.
- Ideal for new born stage as well: New born babies need to be changed frequently. They also poop and pee a lot. Thus, new born size cover diapers are ideal for them too.
This is why Superbottoms Cover diapers make a great day time solution.

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.
We took a stash of :
- 4 Superbottoms cover diapers
- 5 Superbottoms Plus
- 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). 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 realized, 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 liners 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.
How to wash 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 regular detergent is recommended.

Many parents believe that reusable diapers are to be used primarily at home. They use them at home during day-time while for nights and for going out; they prefer to use disposables because they are, as the name suggests, easy disposing off. However, cloth diapering out of home is much simpler than you think.
Here are 4 ways to make cloth diapering out of home a success for you.
1. Decide how long do you plan to be out and figure a few things out
Depending on the time duration for which you plan to be out, you will have decide on the type of diaper you choose.
If you are going to be out for long, at a place where there may not be proper changing facilities, you may want to use high-absorbency diapers such as Superbottoms Plus All-in-ones.
If you are sure there are changing rooms available, you can use regular diapers too.
Using covers with cloth diaper soakers/inserts are good for out of home diapering if you have changing facilities.
You can carry extra cloth diaper inserts and a few covers and simply change soakers and reuse the outer. That way, you have to carry lesser number of diapers
2. Carry a wet bag
Wet bags are waterproof bags that are especially convenient to carry wet / soiled diapers post changing.
Carrying wet bags makes like very simple when you are cloth diapering out of home.
3. What do I do with the poop?
This is one of the biggest concerns parents have when they cloth diaper out of home. So when your baby poops, like with disposable diapers, you need to wipe your baby’s bottom clean first.
If you have the facility to, knock off the poop in the pot and flush it down. You can keep the diaper in the wet bag / waterproof bag to carry home. Ensure that the bag is tightly sealed and closed to avoid stink.
If you do not have the option of knocking off the poop, it is okay to tightly close the diaper and store it in a waterproof bag, sealed shut.
Once you are home, you can wash the diapers clean as usual.
4. Cloth Diapering on Vacation
While this calls for an entirely separate post (that we will put up eventually), cloth diapering on vacation requires a bit of planning but it is certainly doable!
As we always say, figure out the washing and storing facilities. If you are on a homestay vacation, choose one with a washing machine. If not, hotel bath tubs / wash basins work just fine.
Ensure you carry enough cloth diapers and your favourite detergent and you are good to go!
Cloth diapering 100% is doable and great for your baby and the environment.
When you can get the convenience of disposable diapers in the goodness of cloth, why let plastic touch your baby’s bottom?
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
- 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.
- 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
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.
- 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.
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.

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
We at Superbottoms understand that newborn breastfed poo is runny. Poop blowouts are only too well-known and of course super messy. With double leak-guards, Superbottoms newborn cover diapers provide double protection from poop blowouts containing the messes 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
