What are Modern Pocket Cloth Diapers?

Pocket Diapers have only been around since 1998 but are becoming one of the most popular choices in cloth diapers.  They consist of a two piece system; a waterproof outer layer (PUL) and a stay dry inner layer (Suede Cloth / Milled Fleece) that has the ability to wick wetness away from baby’s skin.  They have a contoured shape and fasten with either aplix (Velcro) or snaps.  At the back (or sometimes at the front), they have a pocket opening allowing you to add absorbent materials such as microfiber inserts, hemp inserts etc.

The advantage of a pocket diaper is that you are able to customize the amount of absorbent materials you stuff in the pocket depending on your needs.  They also dry very quickly since the inserts are removed for laundering.

What are Inserts?

Inserts are absorbent multi-layer fabrics that are placed inside a pocket diaper.  These can be made of various materials such as microfiber, terry, hemp, bamboo etc.

Will using cloth diapers be a lot of Extra Work?

Not really!  It is just as simple as daily washing!

Will it be HOT?

The PUL used is a breathable material.  Suede Cloth used is ultra-soft and although it feels thick, it is not warm for the child.

How many pieces to start with?

How many you need to get started depends on whether you will be using cloth diaper full-time, how old your child is and how often you plan to do laundry.

Recommended – to start with 8 to 12 pieces.  (based on daily washing)

Can I use both Cloth and Disposable Diapers?

Absolutely!  Most mommies choose to use both the cloth diapers at home and disposable for outing and / or at night time.  Of course, the less disposable diapers you use the better.  But what is most important is what work best for your baby and your family.

How to Get Rid of the Baby’s Poo?

If poo, shake any solids into the toilet, the suede / fleece material is great for releasing anything fairly solid.  Remove the insert, and then rinse any solids still on the diaper.  We highly recommend the mini toilet spray for spraying off solid waste.

Why No BleachNo Softener?

Bleach will leave a residue on the diapers and breaks down the fibres in the diapers, shortening their lifespan.

Softener will coat the diapers, making them water repellent and will cause leaks!

What type of Detergent should I use with my cloth diapers?

Besides No Bleach / No Softener, generally you will need to use less detergent than normal for washing cloth diapers, as they are easily susceptible to build-up.  It is also best to avoid detergents with whitening enzymes.

Why Pre-Wash is required?

Yes, it is important to prewash your new diapers.  Ideally, it should be washed 3 times before using to attain good absorbency.

Are cloth diapers Bulky?

Cloth Diapers are a little bulkier than disposable but not enough for anyone to notice most of the time.  The bulkiest is usually at night when you require extra stuffing for babies who sleep for long hours or for heavy-wetters.

Do cloth diapers Leak?

Both cloth diapers and disposable diapers may leak.  But if you choose the right absorbency and proper fitting, it is almost unlikely.

Do I need to change my baby more often if I use cloth diapers?

Regardless of whether you are using cloth or disposable diapers, you should change your baby’s diaper every 2-3 hours during the day to prevent diaper rashes and keep skin healthy.

Prevent or Reduce Diaper Rashes if using cloth diapers?  How?

Diaper rashes are usually caused by bacteria, ammonia or chemicals from the disposable diapers, coming in contact with the baby’s skin.

Also, detergent residue on cloth diapers that are not rinsed properly can irritate your baby’s bum too.  So make sure you don’t use too much detergent and that you rinse your diapers properly.

What are the different type of Fabrics Used in cloth diapers?

  • PUL (polyurethane laminate)

Used for the outer layer of the pocket diapers.  It is a laminated polyester fabric making it waterproof and breathable.  It has the ability to withstand high temperatures and lots of use.  It is also very easy to care for.

  • Suede Cloth

Made from 100% polyester, it does not pill and looks new with wash after wash.  Known for its ability to wick wetness away from the skin and it is stain resistance.  Often used as the layer next to baby’s skin.

  • Microfiber

Used for pocket inserts.  Great absorbency.  Known for its ability to absorb fluids rapidly.

  • Hemp

Hemp material is getting more popular in the cloth diapering world now, due to its absorbency capabilities, durability and anti-bacterial.  The more you wash hemp, the more absorbent and softer it will get.  It is often used for diapers inserts.  It is usually mixed with cotton.  Expect 10% shrinkage when washed.
