Snaps, Velcro, Rise, Waistband, PUL, Lining. We talk about cloth diaper components a lot in online reviews, but what are they really? Over the next few weeks I will be breaking them down for you.
The Components of Cloth series aims to take the mystery out of cloth diapers. Not only will you learn about the Anatomy of a cloth diaper in an easy to read way, you will learn different options for each part and why you might want one option over another.
Cloth Diapers Come with a Myriad of Options
Every baby is different, and the sheer number of cloth diapers on the market should tell you that the industry recognizes that. Unfortunately, there is no One Diaper to Rule Them All and there never will be. What fits my baby’s thighs might not fit yours. What holds in your baby’s poop might not hold in my baby’s, etc.
There are All In One, All in Two, Flats, Prefolds, and more when it comes to types of cloth diapers, but there are also Rise Snaps, Waist Bands, Backs and Legs on each and every diaper style. And that’s what this series will discuss: the components of cloth diapers.
A Four Part Series

- Rise: Sizeable Choices
- Lining and Absorbency: The Inside Story
