This is the same as our Hemp Doubler, (three layers of 55% hemp, 45% organically grown cotton) but topped with a layer of virgin Malden Mills 200 weight polar fleece. Polar fleece allows the moisture to go through but maintains a drier feeling next to baby’s bottom, since fleece is hydrophobic (afraid of water). With quality polar fleece the argument that only disposables keep baby’s bottom feeling dry is simply not true. This washable synthetic really does keep baby’s bottom dry. More information and photos here.
For all of these sizes of stay-dry doublers, the BLUE edge stitch side is the side that has the stay dry fabric. The blue edge stitch side goes next to baby. Think "b" is for blue is for baby.
I bought these because of the reviews. I honestly don't think they live up to all the reviews or my 6 month old boy is a super soaker. He sleeps 6-8 hours at a time and these are soaked. I have thirsties hemp doublers and I think they get the job done better with less bulk. I do like the stay dry component, but I'd rather go with a different combo for a nightime diaper.
Nighttime cloth diapering is always a game of maximizing wetness absorption without waking the baby due to the wet feel. The nighttime doublers are perfect! They hold SO MUCH and baby doesn't feel wet at all. I used to just use a fleece liner on top of a workhorse for overnights but a stay-dry night insert in a normal prefold is even better. LOVE and can't believe it took me this long to try them! NOTE: the night liners are probably going to be too big for most newborns through about 4-5 months.
My baby stays dry through the night now!
We use night stay dry at home with fantastic results and got the longs for daycare nap diapers. Night doublers were too bulky for daycare to figure out how to make the diaper fit correctly..... The longs we're just right for a leak free midday nap.
Use these as overnight doublers for stay dry feel for (if) when my baby sleeps longer stretches, and they work great! Highly recommend
