Newborn Organic Cotton Diaper Setup Kit

6 reviews

Stock status: In stock. Usually ships same or next business day.

This kit includes a FREE beautiful organic cotton Swaddle and a set of FREE GMD slide lock diaper pins.

This kit is for diapers, wipes and a swaddle for newborn baby. It does not include the diaper covers. We recommend about 6 diaper covers to go over the diapers. Four covers is a get-by amount and 8 is really better than 6. Six covers is the common recommendation and it works fine. Again, diaper covers are not included

Definition: The diaper is the absorbent part and the cover is the waterproof part that goes over the diaper.

This made of organic cotton kit includes:

  • 1 dozen Newbie grey edge organic prefolds (Why this size?  New babies are little, even 9 pound newborn babies are still newborn babies.   This lighter weight size is great at first and if baby is early they are really nice to have.  Fold down the front as needed and that helps keep the cover away from the cord stump.  Then later and all the way to potty learning these are your doublers. You will already have the doublers on hand when you need them.  They will be very useful for a long time.)
  • 2 dozen Newborn orange edge organic prefolds (Why these?  They are the perfect newborn diaper for the first 4-6 weeks and this is the backbone of your newborn organic diaper stash.)
  • 1 dozen Novice light green edge organic prefolds  (Why these?   This dozen ensures that you have enough diapers and you don't run out. New babies go through a lot of diapers in a day!  Babies also grow quickly so when baby suddenly outgrows the newborn prefolds you have something that fits and you can get them on a new baby even though they'll be a bit big. Although newborn babies still get fed and changed during the night, sometimes babies do sleep a longer stretch and these diapers are bigger and more absorbent than the newborn orange edge so they are great for those times when you can go longer between changes.  
  • 1 individual Small yellow edge oganic prefold (so you have both choices of the "small" sizes - novice green and small yellow - on hand so you can decide which ones you want to go with for your next size.
  • 1 individual Intermediate blue edge organic prefold
  • 1 individual Medium red edge organic prefold  (so you have both choices of the "medium" sizes - intermediate blue and medium red - on hand so you can decide which ones suit your baby's growth pattern when the time comes.
  • 1 individual Large brown edge organic prefold (this is your washable changing pad and it will become your overnight diaper next year)
  • 3 packs Cloth-eez Muslin Wipes made of organic cotton, 12 wipes per pack which is 36 wipes.   Some people might want to also buy a 4th pack separately.
  • 1 FREE Cloth-eez Double Weave Muslin Swaddle Blanket and a free pair of Slide Lock pins in case you want to give pinning a try.
  • Diaper covers are NOT Included.   You will need about 6 of those.  Go to the Diapers Covers page to choose yours. 

The free 16 page GMD How-To Wash Diapers Booklet is also included and a set of FREE GMD Slide Lock Diaper Pins

If you just know that you want only organic cotton touching your baby's bottom, this is is a nice setup for the newborn time.  

What is the difference between this organic kit and the one with white prefolds?  

    - The prefold fabric choice is different (organic unbleached cotton vs. white cotton) but the sizes and quantities of the diapers is the same.

    - Different kind of wipes.   This kit has the birdseye wipes that are two layers made of organic cotton while the white kit contains white two-sided wipes. 

    - This kit has a dozen size newbie prefolds which are little and great in the first weeks, whereas the white kit has size small prefolds instead and size small are usually worn after baby is over 10 pounds.

Good product

This product (and Karen’s description) took the guesswork out of starting a cloth diaper system for me. These are so soft and fluffy and they’ve been used for numerous things besides diapering - i.e.: brown-edged diaper as a changing pad or as a “towel” for naked tummy time, burp rags, even some as clean-up rags for ones baby will no longer use. I also appreciate the extras to trial as baby grows.

So soft!

Everything arrived as described, and I've prepped them according to the instructions. The prefolds do shrink and become more plush, as it says on the website, and they become more absorbent with each wash. Can't wait to use them!

Ended up returning

We ended up going with a cloth diaper service that came to us as a gift from family. Otherwise, we would have pursued this option.


I have been using the diapers that came in this kit for 9 months and I couldn't be happier with the performance and quality of the diapers. The kit took all the question and worry out of cloth diapering and the price is very fair especially considering it is organic cotton. The diapers, once prepped, are soft and fluffy, and since I line dry them, they are now bright white too. The wipes are the perfect size and texture to get your baby clean but without irritating the delicate baby skin. The diapers are very absorbent; baby sleeps comfortably through the night. Baby has never had a rash nor a "blow out ". These cloth diapers are superior to disposable diapers; for travel I had to use disposable and I couldn't wait to get baby back into the cloth diapers! I highly recommend the diaper kit!

The perfect way to begin!

This kit was everything I was hoping for and more. We were able to use the prefolds in this kit for my daughter from birth until three months old. I love that it came with an intermediate and medium prefold as well to give me an idea as to which I would prefer to use when sizing up. Such a great investment and very cost-effective for those looking to cloth diaper.
