Washing diapers between changes & cloth diaper washing routine. Is washing cloth diapers hard? These are the most common questions regarding washing dirty reusable diapers.
You can use our cloth diapers at night as well. It may take a little practice to get the absorption right for your baby. Our Baby Elsa pocket diapers come with five diaper absorption settings. If you think, you still need an extra support for the night, check out our cotton hemp inserts, also. It is better to use the pocket diaper set up for night, so the micro- suede layer sits next to your baby`s skin to keep it dry overnight.
Maybe your baby has outgrown the absorbency. It often happens between the newborn diaper and one size diaper stage. It might be the time to move up to one size. READ MORE
We do not recommend using rash creams and balms with our cloth diapers. If needed, you should choose a non-oil based rash cream without zinc or petroleum and use a liner to protect the diaper inserts. Rash creams can stain cloth diapers or insert and make them less absorbent. Fortunately, however, there are also many brands that work beautifully with cloth diapers.
Our diaper covers can easily be reused for multiple diaper changes. You can just wipe them if the baby pees. Simply wipe an air the covers for 2-3 hours before using them again.
Reusing covers can make cloth diapers more economical, you need to buy less diaper sets for your stash. You can just buy boosters or extra inserts instead.
If you notice diaper rash, please start to use diaper cover just ones for your baby.
We suggest changing cloth diapers every 2-3 hours during the day. At night, we recommend using extra absorption to keep the baby`s bum dry. Simply add additional inserts for extra absorption.
