What are cloth diapers?

 

Pleasantly soft, breathable, and above all... free of unnecessary chemicals. The cloth diaper is currently experiencing a great revival. More and more parents are choosing this environmentally friendly and beautiful alternative to the disposable diaper.

The new designs of cloth diaper are very easy to handle. No complicating folding, no safety pins and certainly no boiling out of the diapers are necessary. The poop is collected by the diaper fleece and disposed of separately, and a lot of waste is avoided.

wie funktioniert Stoffwindel? wie funktionieren Stoffwindeln?

 

No matter which system or model you choose, it should fulfill three tasks:

1. Catching the "big business"
2. Absorbing the "small business"
3. Preventing leaking

 

The big business

Paper fleece or dry fleece is placed as the top layer in the diaper to catch and easily remove the big business.

Fleece is made of purely vegetable, completely biodegradable materials and is usually available on rolls. Fleece with poop is disposed of in the toilet/trash garbage can. Fleece only with pee can be washed in the washing machine and reused 3-4 more times (depending on brand).

FDry fleece consists of polyester and is the washable alternative to paper fleece. After use, dispose of the poop in the toilet and wash the fleece in the washing machine. Especially recommended for the night (longer changing intervals) to keep the child's skin dry.

Before the start of feeding the breastfeeding poop is soft, liquid and water soluble, the fleece can be washed together with the breastfeeding poop in the washing machine.

Absorbency

Absorbent pads/inserts are made of microfiber, cotton, bamboo or hemp. They differ in capacity and speed of absorption.

Absorbent pads last for 4-6 hours.

Diapers for the night, so called fitted diapers, can hold up throughout the night because they are made of absorbent material (more sleep for you yeah!). To make it waterproof you need a covers.

Waterproof and breathable

The waterproof part of the Stoffys is coated with polyurethane (PUL), a breathable material that ensures that the moisture remains in the diaper. Unlike the plastic in disposable diapers, PUL is breathable and therefore more comfortable for the baby's bottom.

As an alternative to PUL, a greased wool covers can be used as a waterproof layer.
