Choosing the right kind of diaper is one of the crucial decisions you have to make, well before the arrival of your baby. Diapers play a major role in your child’s life, especially in the first few years until they are potty trained. So it is important to choose a comfortable diaper that fulfils its most important function of keeping the baby dry, and clean. A cloth diaper is one of the most preferred choices for parents as they are sustainable, comfortable, and highly absorbent. But what makes newborn cloth diapers highly absorbent and leak-free?

Well, it's the cloth diaper inserts, that soak the liquid and boost the overall absorbency. However, if you are new to using cloth diapers (1), understanding the different types of inserts pads available in the market can be a bit overwhelming. Hence, we are here with an ultimate guide on the best diaper inserts. So give this a read and solve all your doubts!

Types of Cloth Diaper Inserts

Modernised reusable diapers typically come with a waterproof outerlayer, and an inner absorbent fabric to soak the liquid and keep your baby dry and comfortable. The inner absorbent is also known as cloth diaper inserts, which are available in different materials which define their type. Hence we have curated a list of them below -

1. Microfiber Diaper Inserts

Microfiber is a man-made absorbent material which is made of polyester/polyamide. They are light, and fast-drying. However, you must use a barrier, such as fleece liners, between the microfiber diaper insert and your baby’s skin, as microfiber can cry out and irritate sensitive skin. Microfiber is more like a sponge, so the moisture content may wring out if it is subjected to compression.

2. Cotton Diaper Inserts

Cotton is one of the oldest and most trusted fabrics used in cloth diapers. It is a natural fabric which is highly absorbent, affordable, and easily available. Fitted cloth diapers and some all-in-one newborn cloth diapers use cotton fabric, but a few other types use inserts made of woven fabric.

3. Bamboo Cloth Diaper Inserts

Bamboo material is a popular option for baby cloth diapers. It is soft and absorbs moisture to keep the baby comfortable even when wet. However, bamboo is a synthetic material and not a natural fabric. If your baby is a moderate wetter, bamboo cloth diaper inserts are an ideal choice for you!

4. Hemp Cloth Diaper Inserts

Hemp inserts are durable and super absorbent. Although you won’t find any 100% hemp fabric, they are typically blended with cotton, which makes them more soft and comfortable. Hemp is usually a stiff material, so you may want to soften it up in a dryer. If you are looking for the best inserts pams made with a blend of cotton and hemp, look no further.
