What is a diaper cover? A diaper cover provides the waterproof layer needed to keep your child's clothing dry when using cloth diapers. A Diaper cover should be used with fitted diapers like Kissaluvs or foldable diapers like Chinese prefolds or Hemp Babies. A pull-on style diaper cover may be used when the cloth diaper underneath also has a closure. If you purchase prefolds, you will need to also purchase a Snappi or pins to make a pull-on style diaper cover effective. A diaper cover that closes with hook & loop style fasteners (like Bummis) will eliminate the need for pins/fasteners when using foldable diapers.
How many covers do I need? We recommend purchasing 6-8 diaper covers for a newborn, 4-6 diaper covers for an older baby and 2-3 diaper covers for a toddler.
I'm buying pocket diapers or all-in-ones. Do I need a diaper cover? A diaper cover is not necessary if you are using All-In-Ones or Pocket Diapers.
