FAQ

WHAT IS A CLOTH DIAPER ?

A cloth diaper is an absorbing diaper made of textile such as polyester, cotton or bamboo. It closes using snaps and has elastic around the baby’s legs and waist. To increase absorbency, one can add an insert or more for nights for example (the insert is a rectangular piece of textile that is placed in the diaper). The outer material of the Sustain a Bum cloth diaper is made out of PUL (laminated polyurethane), a fine waterproof material with a soft touch and breathable that dries quickly.

The Sustain a Bum diapers fit babies from 5 to 15 kilos, from 8 weeks old to 2.5-3 years old (One-Size-Fits-All) thanks to their numerous buttons that allow the best adjustment.

BUT, I DON'T WANT ANY POO IN MY WASHING MACHINE. WHAT CAN I DO?

The logistics of cloth diapers imply in many people's mind that when you wash the diaper, you wash the poo as well. Actually, there is no need for that as when you put the diaper on, you add a sheet of liner between your baby's bum and the diaper. That way, it will collect all the solids and you will be able to throw them in the toilet when changing your baby. There will be no poo to scrap off and none in your washing machine!

That being said, when your child is breastfeed only, you can actually put the full diapers (poo included) in the washing machine as it is water soluble.


HOW MANY DIAPERS DO I NEED ?

On average, your baby will be changed about 6 times per day across its diaper years. We recommend washing the diapers every second to third day (no longer as you don't want the soiled diapers sitting too long – it can damage the fibers). You will need between 15 and 20 diapers to function full time so the 15 Sustain a Bum pack should have you covered as they dry quickly. You can always start small and gauge whether you think you need more. 


DO I NEED A DIAPER COVER FOR THE SUSTAIN A BUM CLOTH DIAPERS ?

No, Sustain a Bum diapers are all you need as they are stuffable with one or more insert for absorbency and the outer material is water resistant.

MY KID GOES TO DAYCARE, WHERE CAN I WRITE HIS/HER NAME ON THE DIAPERS?

You can write the name on the diaper itself, on the inside of the colored part of the diaper where you have the laminated polyester (the waterproof part of the diaper). Please take a permanent marker to do so.

Do NOT iron on any tag on the diaper as it will melt the laminated polyester part of the diaper and destroy it.
