Our cloth diaper
Type A : All – in – one (AIO)
All-in-one (AIO) diapers provide both an absorbent layer and a waterproof outer shell all in one piece.
All in one diaper are just like disposables, but reusable. They are self-contained, no stuffing or folding required. They are closed with either snaps or velcro, waterproof, and come in multiple sizes to accommodate infants, babies, toddlers, and even up to early preschoolers.
Type B : Pocket
Pocket diapers were a fantastic invention! They are one of the most popular types of cloth baby diapers for new parents. These diapers are a two-part system, with a waterproof outer (usually made of PUL), and a stay-dry inside layer made of wicking materials such as micro-fleece, minlky, or suede-cloth.
Type C : Fitted
Fitted cloth diapers made of absorbent cotton, bamboo, or hemp, which have a contour shape similar to a disposable diaper, with elastic or gathered edges at the legs and back to contain messes, they are not water-proof to allow for airflow.
Fitted cloth diapers are fastened with snaps or velcro, hence they are great for active babies and toddlers.
Type D : Prefold
Prefold diapers are those cloth rectangles you picture when you think of old-school cotton diapers. They’ve been folded and stitched with more layers in the middle to create a thicker center. Prefolds are not waterproof on their own. They can be laid inside a waterproof diaper cover, or wrapped and fastened around your baby with pins or a Snappi.
