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!

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

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.
