WHAT DO YOU NEED TO START?
Are you considering making the switch to cloth diapers for your little one? The Doopsis team is here to help make the transition as easy as possible.
When it comes to getting started with cloth diapering, the first question on many parents' minds is, "What do I need?" The Doopsis team believes that one cloth diaper and two inserts are enough to get started. Not only will this save money in the long run, but it's also better for the environment. In fact, using just one cloth diaper per day can "rescue" 365 disposable diapers from landfills in a year.
Of course, every baby is different and some parents may prefer to have more diapers on hand. In surveys, many parents have reported using around 24 cloth diapers and washing them every three days. If you plan on washing diapers more frequently, 12 diapers should be enough.

WHY CHOOSE CLOTH DIAPERS?
Cloth diapers are becoming an increasingly popular choice for parents looking for an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to disposable diapers. But what makes cloth diapers such a great choice, and why should parents consider choosing Doopsis cloth diapers?
First and foremost, cloth diapers are better for the environment. Disposable diapers can take hundreds of years to decompose in landfills, and the production of disposable diapers requires large amounts of water and energy. Cloth diapers, on the other hand, can be used multiple times and can be washed and reused, reducing the impact on the environment.
Another benefit of cloth diapers is that they can be more cost-effective in the long run. While the upfront cost of cloth diapers may be higher than disposable diapers, they can be used multiple times, saving parents money in the long run.
When it comes to choosing a brand of cloth diapers, parents should consider the quality and design of the diapers. Doopsis cloth diapers are made in a small workshop in Latvia, and the company is dedicated to supporting the local economy. In addition, Doopsis cloth diapers are designed to be eco-friendly and child-health-friendly, using high-quality materials that are gentle on baby's skin.
Doopsis also offers a variety of inserts with different materials and absorbency levels to fit your baby's needs. And also, Doopsis is developing new products for both kids and moms, and works to utilize off-cuts from the diaper manufacturing process in the creation of zero-waste products. Furthermore, the company is committed to supporting Latvian artists and buying fabric designs from them for use in its collections.
Choosing Doopsis cloth diapers means you are supporting a socially responsible and eco-friendly company that is dedicated to providing high-quality, sustainable products for your baby.
Cloth diapers, also known as reusable diapers, are an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to disposable diapers. They are made from natural materials such as cotton, bamboo, and hemp, and can be washed and used multiple times.
One popular type of cloth diaper is the pocket diaper. These diapers consist of a moisture-resistant outer layer and a soft fleece lining, with a pocket in between for absorbent inserts. The inserts can be made from various materials and have different levels of absorbency, allowing caregivers to customize the diaper to their baby's needs.

By choosing Doopsis cloth diapers, you are not only doing more for your baby, but also for the planet.
HOW DO CLOTH DIAPERS WORK?
The pocket type cloth diapers manufactured by Doopsis consist of two layers - a moisture-proof outer layer and a soft fleece lining. On the back of the diaper there is a pocket opening – a place for placing moisture-absorbing inserts. On the front of the diaper you will find several lines with snap buttons, they are designed to adjust the size of the diaper!
Crotch snap buttons are designed to adjust the size of the diaper. For newborns and smaller babies, snap buttons will need to be in the smallest size position (connecting the upper and lower crotch snap buttons).
In contrast, fully opened crotch snap buttons (as shown in the picture) are more likely to be used for babies who already know how to walk.
Please note that how to button the crotch buttons depends on the baby herself and these recommendations are only a guideline!
In the waist of the diaper you will find two rows of snap buttons. The top row is for adjusting the waist size, while the bottom row is for adjusting the girth of the hips. With these buttons you will adjust how tightly the diapers are sealed! The diaper should be tightly closed, you should be able to freely put a finger between babies legs and diaper.
Doopsis offers different types of moisture-absorbing inserts. Just like babies who have different wetting habits, there are also different situations when diapers are used, for example during the day, during walks or for a longer night's sleep. The inserts are varied so that the baby caregivers can choose the solution that suits the situation.
Inserts can and should be combined! For newborns, one insert will certainly suffice, however, as the child grows up, when the volume of pee increases, it may be necessary to use more than one insert.
Bamboo insert - universal insert that will fit in everyday life.
Long bamboo insert - universal bamboo fabric insert that dries quickly and can be folded exactly as needed in a specific situation. It can be folded in half – folded in this way it will be great for girls, while folded in such a way that the front fabric forms 3 layers, it will be perfect for boys and babies who like to sleep on their stomachs.
Hemp booster - a thin additional insert that will be useful when more absorbency is required.
INSERTS MUST BE WASHED 3-5 TIMES BEFORE FIRST USE!
A new fabric of natural fiber is still full of vegetable oils and sometimes production dust, so it is very important to wash them before using the inserts!
Cloth diapers and inserts are washed like ordinary linen. If there was a hard stool in the diaper, just shake it in the toilet bowl and rinse it with water.
For cloth diapers and inserts it's very important to not use fabric softener as its residue on the fabric fibers drastically reduces absorbency of the fabric.
Cloth diapers should be washed at a temperature of 40 degrees.
