The Best Bottom one size diapering system is not a pocket diaper, not an all in one, not a fitted diaper and not a prefold system...it is a hybrid cloth diaper. Pair one of these covers with the type of snap in insert you want.
How Does The Best Bottom System Work:
Best Bottom diapers are a flexible and easy to use cloth diapering system.
1. Adjust front snaps to achieve the size needed.
2. Snap insert into diaper.
3. Put diaper on baby and go!
4. When baby needs a diaper change snap out soiled insert and snap clean one in.
5. Put diaper on baby and go again. The Best Bottom shell is wipe-able and can be used multiple times before washing but you may want to air dry between uses although it isn't necessary.
We recommend getting as many shells as your baby poos in a 2-3 day time period (for newborns count how many explosions they have!). We have found that poo does stay on the insert most of the time but in some cases it may not (but it will stay in the diaper cover avoiding an embarrassing mess!) Three different size inserts in several different materials available. Best Bottoms doesn't believe in a one size insert. Newborns and toddlers are not the same size so in order for a one size insert to absorb enough for a toddler it would be huge on a newborn. You may not need all three sizes of inserts and can skip the middle size - it is all up to you! We recommend approximately 24 inserts per size.
So to make it SIMPLE you will need approx 8-10 one size shells and 18-24 inserts per size. Easy!
Fits from birth to 35+ lbs. We added special leg gussets to help keep everything in, adjustable rise with four settings, and overlapping closure snaps. This is a very trim fitting diaper so please be extra careful that none of the insert is sticking out of the shell. Also, after the diaper is on, pull the leg gussets out around baby's legs. This will guard against leaks and help avoid any red marks.
The highest quality materials available have been selected with as much of the raw materials made in the USA as possible. The entire Shell is made with USA-made materials! All Best Bottoms products are proudly handcrafted in the USA at local factories helping to support the local economy and reduce our environmental impact. They use durable snaps and double layer waterproof PUL that creates a perfect no-leak sturdy shell with a wipe-able inside.
There are 2 different materials used for the regular and overnight inserts. The Stay Dry inserts are made from layers of super thirsty microfiber topped with a super soft no-pill fleece pulling wetness away from baby's bottom keeping them feeling dry. The Hemp / Organic Cotton inserts are made from layers of hemp / certified organic cotton and topped with a soft layer of hemp/certified organic cotton fleece. Each insert type is offered in 3 sizes so you can achieve the absorbency and fit you want and need. Small: birth-14lbs, Medium: 11-22lbs, Large: 16-35lbs.
Before first use, wash the shells, stay dry inserts, and overnight inserts one time. Hemp/Organic Cotton inserts need to be washed 4-6 times to reach full absorbency. Please note that hemp inserts will shrink slightly during first washings making them consistent with the other insert sizing.
1. Remove solids
2. Either reuse the shell until soiled or wash day. Separate shell from insert before washing. Fasten laundry tabs (if applicable).
3. Rinse cold, wash warm/hot with 1/4-1/2 additive-free detergent, rinse (warm or cold).
4. Tumble dry or line dry. No fabric softeners or rash creams (if you need to use rash creams put a barrier between baby and diaper for example a flushable liner or reusable wipe work great).
We recommend washing every 2-3 days. We have found that the Best Bottom system washes beautifully as it takes up less space in your washing machine allowing more room for agitation getting your diapers super clean.
