The Newborn insert works as an overnight booster for older babies or as extra absorbency for heavy wetters. Convienently packaged 6 to a pack.
This is NOT a newborn diaper liner. The label "Newborn Insert" confused me. It is poly microfiber on both sides. No smooth side to put against babies skin. That is a different product. I suppose I am at fault for ordering on my phone (probably distracted), and I still think this product could be titled differently. I can say that it wicks well and is great to have in the diaper but not on the later against the skin. I've heard it can wick too much moisture away from the skin. There is also the practical concern of getting the poop in the toilet. I prefer a smooth diaper too layer for easier poop dumping.
I bought a set of these when my son was 4 months old to help us get through the night. Man what a difference!! Just one added to the normal os insert and no leaks any more at night!! I can't wait to try them on our newborn!! They slim down the diapers so much compaired to the OS. The only bad thing is that I have noticed you have to strip them on a more regular basis as they do start to stink after a while of heavy wetting.
I don't like the way these fit into my 4.0s and they're very rough compared to everything else in my stash. Plus for a 3 month old I have to use 2 if she's even going to take a nap while a prefold (not even in a trifold) can last her through the entire night.
Be careful when you buy these. They are not the bumGenius stay dry doubler!!!! I had previously purchased the bumGenius stay dry doublers (that came in packs of 3) that could be used as newborn inserts. I wanted to buy more, so I went to the bumGenius products & purchased these only to find out they are not the same item. These are advertised with nearly identical wording, are the same size & used for the same purpose, but ARE NOT the same items. I intially thought that I was sent the wrong item, so I e-mailed customer service. That was when I was told I had previously purchased the stay dry doubler, not the diaper doubler. I was told I could return them, but by the time I pay for shipping it wouldn't be worth it. Also, I have searched for the "stay dry doublers" on this website now & could not find them anywhere. So if have previously purchased the doublers & are looking to buy more, be aware these are not the same product.
These inserts are very absorbent, as advertised, and will deliver on all their claims. However I have stopped using them for several reasons: 1) they get smelly much quicker than my cotton fibers and made my nighttime diapers stink 2) the material does not feel good to my hands and clings to everything-it does not stay soft at all once washed 3) it is a material that cannot be against my son's skin, so I always had to be aware of that when diapering 4) it is white which I hated having mixed in with my natural stash-this is a purely cosmetic reason :) Overall, I have found an all cotton stash to be preferable. That is one woman's opinion, but I just sold these off and will be ordering hemp inserts in the case that I miss having a doubler.
