What are Do Good Baby All-in-One diapers made of?
Our diapers are designed by Peter (founder of Do Good Diapers Service in Minneapolis) and made with high quality materials to help parents diaper better at a great price.
The two absorbent pads are made of a combination of microfiber on the inside surrounded by soft bamboo. Bamboo cotton is a natural material that is sustainable and environmentally friendly because it requires reduced farming inputs like fertilizer, pesticides, and water in comparison with other types of fabrics — which also require heavy harvesting machinery.
Why should I use All-in-One cloth diapers?
All-in-One cloth diapers can be a great option for parents who want the convenience of a disposable diaper with the benefits of cloth diapering. All-in-One (AIO) cloth diapers have several advantages over other types of cloth diapers, including:Easy to use: AIO cloth diapers are very easy to use because they work just like disposable diapers. You simply put them on your baby and then remove and wash them when they are soiled. They are all one piece, which means there are no inserts to stuff or covers to snap on. This makes them a good option for caregivers who are new to cloth diapering. Absorbency: AIO cloth diapers have excellent absorbency because they have multiple layers of absorbent material built into the diaper. This means you're less likely to experience leaks or blowouts. Cost-effective: While AIO cloth diapers may have a higher upfront cost than some other types of cloth diapers, they can be more cost-effective in the long run because you don't have to buy separate inserts or covers in different sizes. Our AIO diapers are adjustable to fit babies 12-35 lbs and are made to last.
How many cloth diapers do I need?
The number of All-in-One (AIO) cloth diapers you need for your baby will depend on how often you plan to do laundry, how frequently your baby wets or soils the diapers, and if you plan to use cloth exclusively.
As a general guideline, you may need around 20 to 30 AIO cloth diapers. This assumes that you plan to do laundry every other day or so, and that your baby goes through about 8 to 10 diaper changes per day. However, keep in mind that this number can vary depending on your baby's individual needs, age and how often you want to do laundry.
How often should I change my baby's cloth diaper?
Cloth diapers should be changed as often as disposable diapers, which is typically every 2-3 hours during the day and once during the night. However, the frequency of diaper changes can vary depending on your baby's age, feeding habits, and overall health.
Overall, it's a good idea to check your baby's diaper every 1-2 hours during the day and change it as needed. Be sure to change your baby's diaper as soon as possible after a bowel movement to prevent irritation and discomfort. No matter what type of diaper you use, frequent changes help keep your baby clean and dry which is key to maintaining good skin health.
How do I adjust the size of my AIO diaper?
All those fasteners on the front of our AIO cloth diapers are called “rise snaps.” They allow you to lengthen or shorten the diaper in order to allow one diaper to cover a wider range of sizes and keep your little one snug as a bug! These snaps are located on the front of the diaper in rows of 3 snaps. As your baby grows, you simply let out the rise snaps to ensure that you are getting the best coverage.
When do I adjust the sizing/rise of my AIO diapers?
Adjusting the sizing and rise of your AIO (All-in-One) diapers is important to ensure a comfortable and leak-free fit for your baby.
As your baby grows, they will need a larger diaper size. You may notice that the current diaper size is leaving red marks on your baby's skin or is too snug around their waist or thighs. In this case, it's time to adjust the sizing/rise to a larger setting.
If the diaper is leaking, it may be because the fit is not snug enough. Adjust the rise/sizing to make the diaper fit more securely around your baby's waist and thighs.
Do I need to rinse or soak these diapers?
No, in most cases you do not need to rinse or pre-soak our AIO diapers before washing them. You should remove any solid waste from the diaper and dispose of it in the toilet. This step is essential to prevent any bacteria or odors from building up in the diaper.
Once you have removed the solid waste, you can put the AIO diaper in your diaper pail until it is time to wash. It is recommended to wash your diapers frequently (every 1-2 days) to reduce odors and staining. You should also use a detergent that is free of fragrances, fabric softeners, and other additives that can build up in the diaper and affect its absorbency.
