Simply by switching to cloth diapers instead of disposables. Modern innovations make diapering easier than ever!

  • Pocket
  • Cover+Insert
  • Cover+Fitted
  • AIO

Pocket diapers are shaped like disposables. They have a pocket or sleeve where you stuff inserts to make the diaper absorbent. You can remove the inserts before washing, for better washing and faster drying.

The great thing about pocket diapers is that they're so flexible. Use less inserts during the day; more during the night. The pockets also ensure that the inserts stay in place.

All the pockets we sell are adjustable so you can use them from infancy to potty-training.

Cover + Insert systems are the best balance of value and functionality.

Unlike pocket diapers, the insert goes on the shell instead of in a pocket. This means you need to make sure the shell fits properly, so the insert doesn't wiggle around in the cover. The advantage of this system is that you save more than pocket diapers: when baby needs changing, just change the insert and reuse the shell.

We sell both sized as well as adjustable cover + insert systems.

Cover + Fitted systems are the most leakproof systems. The fitted diaper is already shaped like a disposable; it doesn't yet have a built-in waterproof cover, so you add a cover over it for additional leakproof protection.

The great thing about this system is that it's flexible. You can remove the cover around the house if you wish, so that baby feels cooler.

An "AIO" is an all-in-one diaper. No more missing inserts; no more stuffing; no separate layers. The diaper looks almost exactly like a disposable in that everything is one piece.

Contours and Prefold Diapers

Kissaluvs Contour Diapers
Birdseye Prefolds

The most basic diaper for the most budget-conscious parents.

Use them in place of a lampin.

Contour diapers are made from highly absorbent fleece, and shaped to fit baby better than a lampin.

Prefolds are lampins that have been presewn so they're thicker in the center where you need it most.

Fasten with pins or a Snappi. Wrap with a cover for leakproof protection.

Cloth Diapering FAQ's

Thirsties in Action

(1) Which cloth diapering system is right for me?

We offer five cloth diapering systems, each with its pros and cons:

  Pros Cons
Lampin or Prefold + Diaper Cover Cheapest and most popular.
Fastest laundry time. Leakproof.
Can use the same lampin from birth to potty-training.

You need to learn how to use a lampin.
More frequent nappy changes, which can be inconvenient.
Some babies are uncomfortable in wet cotton gauze lampin.

Specialized Insert + Diaper Cover

Cheaper than fitteds, AIOs and pocket diapers.
Feels dry against baby's skin.
Fast laundry time. Leakproof.
Can use just one or two sizes from birth to potty-training.

You may need a snug-fitting diaper cover or a diaper fastener (pins, clips or Snappis) for some inserts.

(3) I'm happy with disposables. Why should I use cloth diapers?

Cloth diapers are better for baby. Cloth diapers don't contain harsh chemicals. Cloth-diapered babies get diaper rash less frequently! In contrast, disposable diapers contain dioxin (a probable carcinogen) and TBT, a toxic chemical that harms people's immune and hormonal systems. Studies have also linked disposable diapers to asthma symptoms and possible lower sperm count in males.

Cloth diapers are better for you. Cloth diapers are cheaper. Two years of cloth diapering starts at less than P8,000. In contrast, two years of disposable diapers will cost you P44,000 to P72,000. Cloth-diapered babies also learn to potty-train faster.

Cloth diapers are better for Mother Earth. You won't be adding disposable nappies to our already over-burdened landfills.

(4) I don't know how to use a lampin.

There are many ways to fold and use a lampin. Here's one way from Baby Center Philippines.

If you're using Thirsties diaper covers, you can also use the lampin without pins or clasps. Just fold the lampin, lay it in the diaper cover, and put it on baby. Check out these instructions from Baby Center Philippines.

Remember: always wash new diapers before first use, and change baby's nappy every 2 hours for lampin, or every 3 to 4 hours for modern cloth diapers. If you intend to use the diaper for longer than that (e.g., at night), you might find it helpful to add inserts/doubleres for extra absorbency.

(5) How many should I buy?

It partly depends on how often you do laundry, but a good complete set for an exclusively cloth-diapered baby might look like this:

- 24 lampin or contour diapers
- 4 to 6 diaper covers
- 6 fitted diapers, AIOs or one-size diapers for travelling/nighttime/naps (optional)
- 2 inserts/doublers for nighttime use

If you're buying for an older baby (5 months or older), you can subtract a few diapers, because babies need less diaper changes as they grow older. Toddlers only need 2 to 3 diaper covers.

(6) How do I wash soiled diapers?

Before putting in the diaper pail, shake the poop into the toilet. Spraying with a high-pressure spray bottle or hose can also help, especially with newborn or breastfed poop.

If you're using a pocket diaper, remove the insert before washing.

Before washing, presoak the diaper and insert/s in soapy water for about 10 minutes.

Handwash, or wash in the washing machine with only 1/2 the usual amount of detergent. Do not use fabric conditioner! If your washing machine has hot water, wash on HOT. Optional: add 1 tsp fresh calamansi juice to the final rinse to remove detergent residue.

Dry on LOW or line-dry.
