The Best Bottom Cloth Diaper System

feat_features

The Best Bottom cloth diapering system is so simple!

The one-size covers use snap in inserts. This allows you to choose the size and type of material of the insert to meet your needs and preferences. There are 3 sizes to get the right fit in stay-dry microfiber, organic hemp/cotton and hemp/cotton overnight inserts.

This system is so flexible that it allows you to adjust as your little one grows and needs change.

GroVia Hybrid/All-in-two System

groviaGroVia’s All-in-two cloth diapers consist of a waterproof cover and separate absorbent insert. The insert is snapped to the diaper cover and you can reuse the diaper cover if it is not soiled.  We typically recommend 1 cover for every 3 inserts.

We offer a variety of size packages, as well as, individual products – shells, soaker pads (organic and stay dry), boosters (organic and stay dry) and BioSoakers (disposable inserts with sticky tabs – great for outings, vacations, daycare, etc.).

Cloth Diaper Spotlight: Sometimes Simple is Beautiful {Prefolds}

snappibabyLast month, we asked our Parent Review Panel to get cozy with prefolds.  Many people love prefolds, but many shy away from them perceiving them to be difficult, messy or slow to get on a fast moving baby.  After hearing from our Parent Review Panel on Facebook and some of their responses and observations about prefolds, we hope that you now have a different view of these simple beauties!

What are prefolds you ask?  Here is the short & sweet 411.

  1. Prefolds are made from several layers of unbleached organic cotton twill.  They are sewn into rectangles which have three panels – a thicker panel down the middle and thinner panels on the edges.  They are flat so often folks want to know what’s up with the “pre-folded” name?  Those panels, they are pre-folded for you into thinner and thicker sections.  That’s the pre-folded part.
  2. They are very versatile and to some this can be overwhelming – too many options can cause fear.  We teach parents how to use prefolds at our Cloth Diaper Workshops Snappi them on or Fold & Lay.  Simple, simple, simple.  The Snappi Method requires a bit of practice at the outset but the fold and lay system is very easy and fast.  To get a good visual of how it all works, check out our tutorial in our Video Learning Series.

Based on our experiences as parents and “Diaper Therapists”, these are some recommendations about prefolds:

  • Newborn prefolds are tiny.  They don’t often Snappi on well as they are too small but they are great for keeping a trim bottom and fit perfectly under the newborn Super Brites.  Once they are outgrown, they can be used as extra absorbency inside of infant or baby sized prefolds or if you want to upcycle them into another use all together, the owner at Bummis told us they make great pads for moms going the reusable menstrual pad route.
  • For younger babies with runny poop, parents often love Snappi’ing them on.  These babies are often not yet mobile and are patient with parents as they get on their Snappi Groove.
  • For the ultimate in ease, the fold & lay method wins for older babies that have less runny poop and are on the go.
  • For younger babies we recommend having 3-4 covers per day, more with the fold & lay method, less with the Snappi method.
  • For older babies, we recommend having 2 covers per day.

Here is a picture tutorial on how to fold prefolds in many different ways addressing different wetting and functional needs of babies.

It seems that everyone is decluttering, downsizing, simplifying.  Why not try the same with your diapering collection.  Start or boost your collection with prefolds – they are beautifully functional and wonderfully inexpensive.

What the Parents Say – Our Prefold Parent Review Panel Results

Our Parent Reviewers received 2 Bummis Prefold Cloth Diapers, a Snappi Diaper Fastener, a SuperBrite Diaper Cover and a dose of encouragement. After two weeks with prefolds in their daily diapering routine, here are some musings for you to consider.

Front line, real life experience, coming up!

  • Yes, I would recommend them for someone to try prefold especially when starting on a young baby and if cost is a concern
  • We did not have any leaks and love the gussets as it helps keep her leak proof even when our little one was on the move
  • Snappi: if it was used on a younger infant it would help contain explosions and would be much easier to secure
  • Absorbency was what we needed the most as our little one wets very heavily at the front of her diaper once we started using the prefold folded for maximum absorbency in the front and fanned out in the back like I showed in a previous post she seemed happier.
  • The Prefold folded easily and fit very well into the cover.
  • The Snappi super easy to use, the prefolds easy to fold and I still cant believe how well they hold poosplosions
  • Prefolds really cut down my laundering time. I feel like I am forever washing, stuffing, unstuffing and snapping my pocket diapers and this can get overwhelming with twins.
  • I’m happy to say our little one slept about 7.5 hrs straight last night in her prefold. {note from N&G – we love hearing that parents got a good night’s sleep with cloth diapers!}
  • Only other thing I would recommend is using a fleece liner for the stay-dry effect especially at nighttime (as well as cleaning up any poopy messes).

Some Awesome Tips that came out of this Review Panel:

One technique I use on the prefolds, which I find rather handy when diapering a squirmy mobile baby who requires more absorbency in the front than the back is to flare the back of the prefold out so more surface area is covered at the back. I find when I don’t do this and my little one squirms around during the diapering process and the back part of the prefold often will not end up going up the middle and will be off to one side. By flaring out the back of the prefold like in the photo even if it gets a bit shifted she still has coverage to catch any liquid or solids that make it to the back of the diaper.

Use the large bio-soft liners fitted to the back of the diaper with the edges of bio soft liner tucked under the edges of the prefold. I find by tucking it under and fitting it to the back it catches the most of any poo-explosions both before and now that they are more solid.

And all our parents unanimously said:

Thanks so much for the opportunity to test these diapers. It has totally changed my mind about prefolds!  {hooray!}
