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!
