5 Reasons to use Cloth Diaper Covers WITH Disposables!






What? That doesn't make sense to you?
I'm here to tell you right now that it makes perfect sense! It happens all the time.  I get many many orders for PUL Cloth Diaper Covers and every once in a while I get a message that goes something like this: " I love the {rainbow} print diaper you have in your shop.  I use disposables, can I still use that cover?"
and my answer is:

"OF COURSE YOU CAN!!!"

But why? Well here are 5 good reasons why you should use cloth diaper covers WITH disposable diapers.

1.To help keep in leaks while wearing disposables at night!
2. To help keep in leaks during the day while wearing disposables (think BLOWOUTS!) Think of it as a second layer of protection before it gets on your babies clothes, and YOU! If you have to double up or boost the absorbency on the disposables, a cover can help keep it all snug to catch leaks. Covers are One-Size with a snap up rise so you can get a good fit and prevent the soggy diaper syndrome.
3. PatsycakeBaby diaper covers are cute and come in a ton of options. Just check out the fabric choices here. or you can send your own fabric to match outfits.
4. They look super cute instead of pants and can be worn with those adorable baby leg warmers! Plus you can add ruffles for the girls!
5. They can double as a swim diaper....AWESOME.


And in case you aren't convinced here are two more reasons:

6. Baby take off their diaper? Snap on covers can help keep them on!
7. When you run out of disposable diapers, you can lay a towel in the cover and use it as a backup.

So just when you think that cloth diapering is just for cloth diapering families - think again.  Cloth diaper families pair the diaper cover with an absorbent layer like liners, prefolds, and fitted diapers. Disposable diapers are absorbent layers too - so go with it!

Q: Is it hard to wash the cloth diaper??
A: Nope, and the other good news is that you can wash the diaper cover in a regular load of clothes.  If it becomes soiled on the inside you can just wipe the cover clean with a baby wipe.  If it gets really soiled from containing a blow out - you can rise the cover to prevent stains and then wash with your next load of clothes.
