This post is written for the MCNP EB/Expo Blog Carnival with the theme "The Modern Cloth Nappy: The Practical Choice for Moms Today" We aim to share and spread the knowledge and encourage moms to switch to cloth diapers. Please scroll below to read the other carnival posts about switching to cloth, cloth diaper styles or preferred diaper for specific times.
These are the different inserts we have used in our cloth diapers and how and when we use them. We mainly use a pocket diaper for our baby. A pocket cloth diaper is one of the many kinds of cloth diaper system used today. Here’s a post listing a few of the Cloth Diaper systems.
These are great as doublers/boosters (paired with a 3-layer microfiber insert) in your nighttime diaper for not so heavy wetters.
3 layers of Microfiber inside. They're perfect for covers or hybrids because unlike the typical bamboo inserts, these are stay-dry.
They're supposedly anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and all the stuff bamboo fabrics are known for. While it's true that it's highly absorbent, they don't hold much. I think that’s because the only thing holding the liquid is the 3layer microfiber fabric.
Out of all the ones above, my fave would be the bamboo/microfiber combo for everyday and hemp inserts as my nighttime doubler/booster.
My favorite system to use is the pocket diaper since this is the most versatile. You can customize it to fit your needs (i.e. stuff microfiber inserts for daytime or add an extra bamboo insert with the microfiber insert for a nighttime solution).
I’m sure there’s a lot more inserts out there but I haven’t tried all of them yet. What inserts have you tried and on what cloth diaper have you tried them on? Which one is your favorite?
