Everything you should know about cloth diapers and their materials - fact check

Alles was du über Stoffwindeln und ihre Materialien wissen solltest - Faktencheck

With cloth diapers, you can choose which material you would like to have on your baby's skin.

You definitely don't want any superabsorbents, lotions, paraffin oil or anything like that on your baby's skin, like in disposable diapers.

That's why I explained to you in these approximately 2 minute videos what the special features of each material are so that you can make the right decision.


Is a natural fiber with good absorbency. It is robust, durable and can be washed at high temperatures. Cotton inserts dry quite quickly and are inexpensive to purchase.

Hemp absorbent pads

Hemp is a pure natural fiber from a sustainable and very undemanding plant. Hemp absorbs moisture a little slower, but can absorb and store a lot. That's why hemp fibers are often combined with other materials during processing. Hemp pads are heavier, but thinner than most other absorbent pads. That's why hemp inserts are great as additional inserts (boosters) to increase the absorbency.

Bamboo viscose

Bamboo viscose is a natural fiber that consists of cellulose fibers, i.e. wood fibers. As the name suggests, bamboo viscose is made from bamboo, the fastest growing grass in the world. It is very soft and can absorb 3 - 4 times as much liquid as cotton. It is also breathable and temperature-regulating thanks to the natural fiber properties, which means it cools you down in the summer and keeps you nice and warm in the winter. Bamboo viscose also has an antibacterial effect, which tends to avoid odors.

Synthetic fibers or microfiber

Microfiber is a purely synthetic material that can absorb a lot of liquid. Microfiber inserts dry very quickly and remain soft even in hard water.

Bamboo charcoal

Bamboo charcoal is a mixed fiber. It is a natural fiber that has been processed to have similar properties to microfiber absorbent pads. It can absorb a lot of liquid, dries quickly and remains soft even with hard water.

Wool or PUL?

To keep the moisture in the diaper, cover pants are used.

There are also two subdivisions here, on the one hand PUL overpants or alternatively overtrousers made of virgin sheep's wool.
PUL overpants are breathable without allowing moisture to escape.
It is a very robust, tear-resistant material that dries quickly after washing. PUL is very soft and stretchy.
How it works? This is a similar process to rain jackets. The overpants are made of nylon that is steamed or printed with a polyurethane layer (laminated with polyurethane → PUL)

If you prefer natural fibers, there are also overpants made from virgin sheep's wool. The sheep's wool trousers are waterproofed and worn over a pant diaper or prefold. They are pulled over the diaper and absorb moisture themselves. The cuffs are soft and don't cut in. It's best to use 2-3 pairs of pants alternately so that one can always dry and air out.
Like sheepskin, the virgin wool trousers are self-cleaning, which is why they are only washed and re-impregnated every 3 to 5 weeks. Here you can find the washing instructions.

Personally, I don't recommend using wool diaper covers for your first baby if you're completely new to cloth diapering.

Are you more clear about a lot of things now?

Perfect, then I have achieved my goal.
