Types of Cloth Diapers

You can choose from different types of cloth diapers. These include:

– Fitted: This type features absorbent material with back and leg elastic and Velcro closures or snaps. It needs a exterior cover since the outside is not waterproof. There are many size options. You can reuse the diapers as long as the cover is clean.

– Flats and prefolds: This type is quite similar to old-fashioned diapers. It is more convenient, but not really a good option for people with tight budgets.

– Pocket: This is a modern type of cloth diapers. It does not need a cover thanks to a waterproof layer.

– Contour: This is a cross between prefolds and fitted diapers. It is contoured to fit the baby snugly, making it a good option for sleeping.

– All-in-one: This type is similar to disposable diapers, but it is made of cloth. The outside is waterproof, while multiple layers inside are absorbent.

– All-in-two: Also known as hybrid, this type is quite similar to all-in-one diapers with detachable absorbency layers to make it easier to customize absorbency. [2]
