100% Cotton Cloth Baby Diapers

The right baby diaper helps to keep an infant dry and comfortable. There are 100% cotton cloth baby diapers in a range of styles. These diapers are available in many different sizes and colors, and they are manufactured by a variety of brands.

What are the types of 100% cotton diapers?
  • Fitted: A fitted nappy has elastic at the leg openings and multiple snaps or hook-and-loop tape for closure at the waist. Its shape resembles that of a disposable diaper.
  • Inserts: Inserts are oblong in shape and fit into a fabric diaper for increased liquid absorption.
  • Prefolds and flats: Prefolds and flats have two or more layers of cotton stitched together. The prefolds have the one-third markings stitched into place with cotton thread.
  • Pockets: Pocket styles of nappies have an opening between the cover and the layer that touches the babys skin. The soaker or insert slides into the pocket.
  • All-in-one: This type of a diaper pairs a 100% cotton fabric soaker and diaper with a cover in one piece.
How do you choose a size of cotton reusable diaper?

These products are available in different sizes to accommodate a growing infant. You will need a tailors tape measure in order to measure the babys waist, thighs, and rise. The rise refers to the measurement from the babys waist, between the legs, and back up to the waist from around the buttocks. An extra-small fabric nappy fits a baby with a rise of 12 inches, waist of 14 inches, and thigh of 4 inches to 6 inches. For each 1-inch increase in rise or 2-inch increase in waist or thigh measurement, choose the next larger size of diaper. An all-in-one fabric nappy fits a baby weighing 5 pounds to 30 pounds, with a waist of 14 inches to 19 inches, thighs of 4 inches to 10 inches, and a rise of 12 inches to 17 inches.
