A 6-ply doubler-insert to layer into a pocket diaper to replace microfiber inserts. These are 6-ply. That means six layers of cotton prefold fabric, which is 2 layers less than our other doublers, however they are wider. One is NOT enough in a pocket diaper, except for a very young baby. Layer 2 or even 3 of these in the pocket to get the absorbency you want. We chose to make these 6-ply because they dry very fast, wash cleanly very easily, and allow for customized absorbency needs. Want it trim? Use 2. That is 12 layers. Need more absorbency? Use 3 of them in there. Choose your bulk-level; choose your correct absorbency for your needs. The big benefit of these is how easily they come clean in the wash. Say goodbye to stinky microfiber. Use them for dusting instead. The skin on your hands will be happier too when you stop touching the microfiber inserts. Cotton feels so much nicer.
Should you decide to move away from synthetic pocket diapering and switch over to 100% cotton diapering, you don't need to purchase any doublers because you already have these on hand.
The same lovely prefold fabric as our beloved Cloth-eez® prefolds. These are wider than our regular Cloth-eez doubler for a better fit when stuffing synthetic pocket diapers. They are quilty just like prefolds are so they come out of the dryer curly and need to be flattened out by hand a bit. This is the nature of the twill prefold fabric. These are also suitable as doublers for extra absorbency in any style diaper. Measurements are approximate. Shrinkage varies. Chlorine-free white 100% cotton. Made in Pakistan.
Stacking 3 large blue edge inserts is similar to using one medium red edge prefold diaper. So if a medium prefold is too much bulk for your pocket diaper, try using just 2 of these doubler-inserts for a trimmer fit. Stack them together, grab both ends together and place it into the pocket all at once, as if it were one item, at the same time. Stuffing two is not very different than stuffing one because it is still one stuffing motion. 12 layers would be too thick to wash and dry so using two 6 layer inserts together in the pocket really does makes sense. Need more for nap or night? Use 3 at the same time.
What is the difference between a doubler and and insert? The width and the layering are a little different but they very similar. You can use these as doublers. Inserts are a little bit wider than doublers and the width is needed to fill up the space in the pocket. These are 6 ply.
There are many choices for absorbency but something that is 100% cotton will always wash up more easily than any other absorbency fabric.
See a video explaining the inserts and comparison to prefolds
Prefold fabric is quilty, curly and variable. Sizes are approximate. Shrinkage will vary.
They come out curlier and a little smaller when prepped and washed in a front loader or an HE top loader due to the action of the HE machines (pushing fibers vs pulling fibers). They tend to come out a little flatter when prepped and washed in standard top loader. This machine and shrinkage variation is also true for prefolds, flats and other cotton products.

I was unsure of what size to get so i got small and large. Its worked perfectly, i layer them together which gives me a slightly more trim diaper. This has saved me a ton of laundry too, i was so used to changing every 1.5-2hr with the microfiber but quickly discovered that at 2hrs these clotheez are only slightly damp on the business end, still feel basically dry to the touch, and are literally dry on the other 2/3. My son is only 5mo but i really only need 2 inserts for bed time as well they are so absorbant. I love that they are easy to wash, i don't need any intense wash routine. And i actually feel the slight riple, i wouldn't even call it baconing per se, actually gives me a better fit. They are so supple i feel better about all that fluff between my sons legs, my old inserts sometimes made me worry about his hips. Im a single mom of 4 and these are a game changer for me. I couldn't afford fancy 8 layer hemp inserts and the microfiber was awful and had me ready to quit.
These work perfect for inserts in the Thirsties Duo diaper covers. I use the small clotheez inserts in the size one covers. I use 2 inserts at a time and my baby stays dry for a few hours with no leaks. I tried the prefolds and they were very thick and I wanted a more trim fit. These are just what I was looking for! My baby is tiny at 14 lbs. at 7 months old.
These are so convenient and effective. I don't understand why anyone would buy polyester inserts when they can buy these super soft and absorbent cotton ones. They make diapering so easy and customizable. I use the Disana tie nappies or GMD muslin flats as my base diaper and usually a Disana wool cover, but sometimes a PUL cover. For daytime, I stack one large and one medium insert into a tie nappy or one medium insert and one small sherpa liner into a Pickman fold flat for my 13mo. I like using the two sizes because it reduces the "bump" at the ends and makes more of a taper. For nighttime, I stack two larges with a small sherpa liner in the middle with a Disana tie nappy. Works beautifully! Fwiw, I'm really glad I bought two dozen of each size. I wash diapers every night, but it's so nice to not need to prep diapers every morning.
