Night Time Diapering Guesswork

Posted by Alex on Feb 9, 2016 2:27:45 PM

Tired of the constant guessing game to figure out which combo will work through the night??

If you are new to cloth diapers – not to worry – with the right diapering system from the get-go you will never have a night time cloth diaper issue! For those battling night time leaks – we are here for you!

Cloth diapering through the night is not much different than the day. You need enough absorbency for 12-13 hours while your baby sleeps AND a good quality waterproof diaper cover. To do this, add one - possibly two (if you have a heavy wetter) absorbent liners inside the diaper to “boost” its absorbency and ensure the waterproof cover is snug around your baby and covers the diaper.

We spent years developing our own custom knit fabrics that absorb quickly, hold A LOT and wash easily – it doesn’t matter which Mother ease diaper and cover you choose!

Polar Fleece in Cloth Diapers

Posted by Alex on Jan 26, 2016 9:48:43 AM

Ever wonder why Mother ease doesn’t use polar fleece in any of it’s products?  It is true that fleece offers a ‘stay dry’ effect, however, the science behind the fabric questions why it’s used inside cloth diapers.

Polar Fleece is commonly used in jackets, hats, sweaters, sweatpants, gym clothes, hoodies, inexpensive throw blankets, high-performance outdoor clothing and even cloth diapers! This fabric is lightweight, warm and soft, however, it’s hydrophobic!

Hydrophobic materials tend to repel water so why would it be used in cloth diapers? This choice of fabric leads to the most common problem in cloth diapers, namely leaks!

Diapers that use polar fleece directly against the baby’s skin will have a hard time absorbing urine. It can simply bead up and roll out the leg before it has a chance to soak in!

Be sure to consider your options when choosing a suitable cloth diaper or determining what’s causing your cloth diaper to leak!
