The diaper has pocket openings on both ends that allows you to increase the diaper's absorbency by adding extra inserts (also called doublers). This also enables any extra stuffed-in doubler or insert to agitate itself out in the wash. (Note from Karen: in theory should but it might not depending on your machine and the contents of the particular washload. Even so, they wash quite well for an all-in-one style diaper.) Half of the soaker pad is attached, while the other half also comes out through one of the pocket openings during the washing cycle.
It is made with a waterproof outer layer and 10 layers of 100% cotton birdseye fabric in the wet zone and one side of the flap has stay-dry fabric.
The unique thing about this diaper is that it has an attached stay-dry microfleece layer on the soaker pad that will keep your baby's bottom dry. To use this feature, simply pull out the other half of the attached soaker pad and lay it over the body of the diaper.
If you prefer all natural fabrics touching your baby's skin, simply keep the unattached portion of the soaker pad tucked inside the pocket. This way the stay-dry part of the soaker is tucked inside and only cotton touches baby in the wet zone.
