What is a Fitted Cloth Diaper?


Question: What is a Fitted Cloth Diaper?
Answer: Fitted cloth diapers are a favorite among parents who have also used disposable diapers, because fitted diapers are pre-shaped to look almost like a disposable diaper. There is no folding or pinning required with these cloth diapers. Fitted cloth diapers are made of absorbent material and have elastic or some other type of gathering at the legs, and they are closed at the top with snaps or hook and loop tape.

Fitted diapers do not normally have a waterproof outer layer, so most fitted diapers require the use of a separate diaper cover if you want to prevent leaks.

One example of this type of diaper is the BubuBebe Newborn Fitted Cloth Diaper.
