1. What is the difference between charcoal bamboo inserts and organic bamboo inserts?
The charcoal bamboo inserts, which dry faster on its surface, are placed on top of the diaper. Because it dries within a minute, the charcoal bamboo insert keeps baby's bum dry and greatly reduces risk of diaper rash. The organic bamboo inserts are designed to be inserted into the back pockets for night or heavy volume usage. At night or for heavy volume babies, both inserts are used at the same time (the charcoal bamboo outside and the organic bamboo inserted in the pocket).
2. The night insert doubles up as training pants insert. Is that true?
Yes, it is designed for dual purpose. When the child is ready to be potty trained, using the night insert on top instead of the charcoal bamboo insert allows the child to feel wetness after each pee, hence it's easier to toilet train this way. Change the wet insert as soon as possible.
3. How long does each insert last?
On average, we recommend not more than 2-4 hours per insert. For night use, using both inserts together can last 6-8 hours, although it can vary greatly depending on individual baby.
4. Will machine washing the cloth diapers frequently damage them?
No. The cloth diapers and inserts are strong enough to last 300-500 machine washes.
5. Can I put the cloth diapers into the dryer to dry?
Yes, though not recommended. Use low heat if it's really necessary. If your dryer has only one setting, reduce the time to intervals of 15 minutes instead of continuous 30-45 minutes.
6. Why do people use cloth diapers?
Mostly 2 reasons: 1) cost 2) nappy rash.
The first reason is because disposables will be about $80-100 per month, depending on what brand you buy. So let’s say if you take 2 years to toilet train your baby, if you use cloth diapers, you can save about $1000 per year, 2 years will be $2000. Cloth diapers is a one-time investment, average out over 2 years will be only $10 per month.
Nowadays, for disposables, the longer they absorb, the more they absorb, they put in more chemicals. Have you heard of some babies can only use Huggies, some can only use Mamypoko, some can only use Pampers, it’s because they are sensitive to a certain chemical within the brand, so they get nappy rash. Cloth diapers are natural fabrics without any chemicals, and it’s more breathable. So most of the time parents who switch to cloth diapers are when the babies are about 3-4 months old, the babies have bad nappy rash and doctors say they cannot use disposables anymore, and must use cloth, so parents switch to cloth diapers.
The 3rd reason is eco-friendly, although most parents are not very concerned about it. A baby uses about 8,000-10,000 disposable diapers in a year. Multiply that by 30,000 babies in Singapore per year. Over time, that can be one whole Bukit Timah Hill!
7. Will baby get nappy rash?
If you change within the 3-4 hour window, and only once 8-hour at night every day, then the possibility of baby getting nappy rash is very low. Why babies get nappy rash is due to 2 reasons: 1) exposure to bacteria for too long 2) sensitive to chemicals. So if you change frequently, baby won’t get nappy rash. The 2nd reason only applies to disposable diapers because they use chemicals to absorb. The longer and the more they absorb, the more chemicals are used.Have you heard of some babies can only use Huggies, some can only use Mamypoko, some can only use Pampers, it’s because they are sensitive to a certain chemical within the brand, so they get nappy rash. Raf Raf cloth diapers are natural fabrics without any chemicals, so it’s automatically not valid.
8. Can I use rash cream?
In the rare incidence of nappy, use only water-based rash creams as oil-based creams will clog the insert fibres, making it unable to absorb anymore.
9. The diaper leaks after baby pees. What should I do?
Check that the leg buttons are buttoned snugly. If loosely buttoned, it will result in leaks. The leg gussets are comfortable and will not hurt your baby's thighs. If it leaks from the back, it is because the charcoal bamboo insert has not been pre-washed enough times, thus not absorbing as it should be.
10. How many cloth diapers will I need?
Depending on your needs, you can choose:
1) 3pc Trial Pack (experience cloth diapering for a continuous 12 hours)
2) 6pc Starter Pack (for half-day cloth diapering – either day or night)
3)12pc Value Pack (for full-day cloth diapering)
