Part 1 - The Waterproof Layer

Explore a Spectrum of Styles: Diaper Shells Crafted from Breathable PUL Material.

Diaper shells take on a vibrant array of colors and prints, all meticulously fashioned from PUL material – an abbreviation for polyurethane laminate. This innovative fabric constitutes the breathable foundation of the waterproof outer layer encasing your cloth diaper shell. The remarkable softness of PUL ensures a comfortable experience, devoid of any intrusive rustling sounds during movement. With EcoAble diapers, the need for plastic pants becomes obsolete, as our advanced designs provide complete protection.

Experience the Versatility: Unveiling Multiple Styles of Cloth Diaper Shells.

EcoAble introduces a range of cloth diaper shells, available in various styles that cater to distinct fits and functions. Choose from the Diaper Cover, Pocket Diaper, or Pull On Diaper, each designed to accommodate different preferences and requirements. Embrace the comfort, convenience, and freedom of choice that our thoughtfully designed diaper shells bring to your incontinence care journey.

- Diaper Cover 2.0

The Diaper Cover serves as the essential waterproof layer, effectively safeguarding your clothing from moisture. With its singular construction, the Cloth Diaper Cover offers the advantage of multiple uses, ranging from 3 to 4 times before necessitating a wash, unless significant soiling occurs. Additionally, its rapid drying ability when hung out conserves energy, aligning with eco-friendly practices.

Maximize absorbency by placing your chosen absorbent material within the Diaper Cover shell. This design harmoniously accommodates various options, including Snap-in Inserts, Fitted Diapers, and even disposable adult incontinence products. Embrace versatility and convenience while ensuring optimal protection with the adaptable Diaper Cover system.

- Pocket Diaper 2.0

The Pocket Cloth Diaper presents a multi-layered composition, featuring a waterproof outer layer, a stay-dry inner layer, and a strategically positioned pocket opening. Unlike Diaper Covers, Pocket Diapers necessitate a complete wash of the entire diaper during each change, ensuring thorough hygiene.

Simple Usage, Tailored Absorbency: Embrace the Ease of Pocket Diapers.

Utilizing a Pocket Diaper involves effortlessly inserting the Snap-in Insert into the designated pocket, followed by securing the diaper in place. Adaptability takes center stage with Pocket Diapers, allowing seamless customization of absorbency layers to match your unique requirements.

Efficient Leak Management: Enhanced Functionality of EcoAble Pocket Diapers.

EcoAble's innovative Pocket Diaper design boasts an integrated thin bamboo booster within the shell, effectively countering minor leaks and dribbles when used independently, eliminating the need for additional pads. Experience enhanced confidence and comfort with our advanced pocket diapering solution.

- Pull-On Diaper 2.0

Seamless Comfort and Convenience: Unveiling the Pull-On Diaper.

Much like its counterpart, the Pocket Diaper, the Pull-On Diaper seamlessly combines a waterproof outer layer with a stay-dry inner layer. In the earlier version, the Pull-On Diaper featured an attached Snap-in Insert on its inner layer, omitting the pocket opening. However, the new and improved Pull-On Diaper 2.0 introduces the inclusion of a convenient pocket opening.

Enhanced Leakage Protection: Elevated Performance of EcoAble Pull-On Diapers.

The EcoAble Pull-On Diaper takes functionality a step further with its integrated thin bamboo booster, effectively addressing minor leaks and dribbles. This design feature enhances confidence and comfort, ensuring you remain worry-free throughout your day.

Effortless Movement, Secure Fit: Embrace the Freedom of Pull-On Diapers.

Designed with your ease in mind, the Pull-On Diaper incorporates wide elastics on both the front and back, allowing for effortless maneuvering when pulling the diaper up and down, akin to traditional underwear. Additionally, the hip tabs, securely fastened on the sides, contribute to a snug and reliable fit, granting you ultimate peace of mind.

Part 2 - The Absorbency Layer

- Snap-In Insert

Snap-in Charcoal Bamboo Inserts for Cloth Diapers (Big Kid, Teen and Adult Sizes)

Crafted with ingenuity, Snap-In Inserts feature a bamboo fleece top layer that wicks moisture away while ensuring a stay-dry sensation. This advanced design minimizes skin rashes, a common concern with disposable products, rarely experienced with cloth diapers due to unique material properties.

Enjoy unsurpassed comfort with contoured shaping, offering maximum coverage precisely where needed. The insert securely attaches to diaper shells with two snaps, ensuring hassle-free use. Compatible with Diaper Covers, Pocket Diapers, Pull-On Diapers, and Fitted Diapers, Snap-In Inserts adapt seamlessly to your preferred style.

- Bamboo Cotton Prefold

Combat nighttime leaks effectively with the Bamboo Fitted Cloth Diaper. Securely wrapping around your body, it guarantees a snug fit and unmatched absorbency. Lined with soft stay-dry bamboo, it ensures a comfortable night's rest. For enhanced performance, pair it with the Snap-in Insert.

Tailoring Your Needs: Determining the Ideal Number of Adult Cloth Diapers

When calculating your required cloth diaper count, it's important to acknowledge that this isn't a precise formula, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution. The actual quantity hinges on factors like your preferred washing frequency and whether you prefer a larger rotation to avoid washing every diaper in every load.

Simple formula:

Starting with Cloth Diapers: A Simple Calculation.

Number of Daily Diaper Changes X 3

If you're new to cloth diapers, a basic guideline is to tally your daily diaper changes and then triple that figure. This serves as a recommended minimum, especially if you're considering a full-time switch to cloth diapers.

If the concept of cloth diapering is unfamiliar, begin with a modest approach. Experiment with two or three diaper sets to gauge your comfort level. Once you're confident, you can opt to purchase in bulk and build your diaper stash.

EcoAble Adult Cloth Diaper Hip Measurements

Why Choose Hip Measurements Over Waist for EcoAble Cloth Diapers Sizing?

Opting for hip measurements offers greater accuracy due to the low-rise design of EcoAble cloth diapers, which don't extend to the natural waistline. This approach aids in pinpointing the precise sizing requirements of the user.
