are inserts used in conjunction with diapers to increase absorbency.
Disposable doublers can be used with cloth and disposable diapers.
Disposable doublers can be flushed down the toilet (as long as it
isn't on a septic system) or disposed of in the garbage. Parents who
use disposable doublers do not need to rinse or save the doubler.

biodegradable. Reusable cloth diaper doublers, however, are available
at Kelly's Closet. Parents who use cloth diapers often prefer
reusable diaper doublers. Cloth diaper doublers are made from
microfibers and hemp fabrics. Parents add diaper doublers to their
pocket diapers to increase the amount of wetness protection the cloth
diaper gives. Using cloth diaper doublers helps cut down on the
amount of waste in landfills and sewer systems.
Dangers of Disposables
diapering products seem convenient and hassle free, but in the long
run, you'll actually work harder if you choose to use disposables.

Plastics trap in heat and prevent a baby's skin from breathing. This
can cause diaper rash and yeast infections. Plastics rub against a
baby's delicate skin and cause chaffing. Disposable diapers and
are not biodegradable. It takes more than 600 years for one
disposable diaper or diaper doubler to decompose. Each year,
billions of disposable diapering products are thrown in our nation's
landfills and sewers. While disposable diapers and doublers sit in
the landfill, the waste inside leaks into the soil and fresh water.
Though they are made for flushing down the toilet, flushing
can cause sewer and septic system problems. Diapers and diaper
doublers thrown in sewers clog sewer pipes and water filtering
systems. When flushed into septic systems, they clog pipes and take
up space in the septic tank causing waste back-ups into the home or

diapers are made from breathable fabrics. Moisture and wetness are
wicked away from a baby's skin reducing the number of diaper rash
break outs and yeast infections. Parents who use cloth diapers can
use cloth diaper doublers in their pocket diapers or fitted diapers.
Flat or prefold cloth diapers can also be used in lieu of disposable
to increase diaper absorbency.
