Drybees Fleece Pocket Diapers have given Baby V and me hundreds more hours of night-time sleep and I adore them!
Initially, Baby V was on Mamy Poko disposable diapers at night and had to be changed every 4-5 hours. Any longer, they could leak or Baby V could develop a diaper rash. As Baby V was a super-light sleeper, it could be a battle trying to get him back to sleep again.
I ended these night-time changing episodes by putting Drybees Fleece Diapers (bought from Mia Bambina, listed price: RM63) on him. They work wonderfully and last through 12 hours.
These are the effective inserts combinations tried:
- 1 LoopyDo insert + 2 GAD hemp doublers/boosters (or 1 GAD one-size hemp insert)
- 1 Drybees M/L microfibre insert + 2 GAD hemp doublers/boosters (or 1 GAD one-size hemp insert)
- 1 GAD one-size hemp insert + 1 Hemp Babies Little Weeds insert (trifold)
Since Baby V is a large baby, the thick diaper looks fine on him. We simply have to put larger pyjamas on his bum.
- Breathable fleece material and stay-dry innert suedecloth material keep Baby V diaper-rash free even after 12 hours nightly
- Eliminates need for night-time diaper changing and gives parents and baby more hours of sleep
- Inner material washes well and remains stain-free after sunning
- Bulkiness can overwhelm smaller-sized babies
Update on 7 April 2010:
These diapers are now available at PrettyMums.com.

I just ordered these so I could get my baby out of ‘sposies at night. I’m so excited to finally be able to go all cloth and bid that nasty rash goodbye!
Thanks for the update, Susan! 🙂 I hope these diapers work well for your baby. We’d definitely be using them on the next baby too.
Hi Mie, I couldn’t find the Drybees fleece diapers on the Mia Bambina website. Can you help? Also could you advise how many I should get (cover and insert) for a newborn. I am preparing for the birth of my first baby and would really like to use cloth diapers. Thanks.
Hi Sheela, I just saw it at http://www.ezmotherhood.com/store/WsDefault.asp?Cat=DRYBEESFleeceDiaper. Only 1 Small available.
You may also contact Drybees directly to check for a retailer near you.
For newborn, it depends on which diapering system you prefer. For using pocket diapers full-time, I’d suggest 15 to 20 pocket diapers and 30 to 40 inserts (many pocket diapers come with 2 inserts). One size diapers usually fit better when baby is 5kg.
For first 1-2 months, I like using traditional cloth diaper / prefold with washable / disposable liner and diaper cover. I have 2-3 dozens of cheap square nappies and about 6 diaper covers. Read more at Successfully Cloth-Diapering a Newborn.
For night, you may use disposable diapers for a few weeks. When you get the hang of cloth diapering in the day, then progress to night-time cloth diapering.
Do refer to Cloth Diapering Essentials – A Quick Guide as well.
All the best in your pregnancy and delivery! 🙂
Many thanks. Appreciate your advice. I’ll consider the option of traditional diapers with covers. I think that might work for me for the first few months.
You’re most welcome, Sheela. Newborns grow very fast, so usually by 2-3 months old, they’d fit well into Small or One Size modern cloth diapers. Of course, if your baby is chubby, he/she would fit well early on. Hope you’d enjoy cloth diapering like we do. 🙂
Would like to know if the size does matter for loopydo from Knickernappies . I saw u bought a large insert. Wonder if it would fit what size of diaper. Does it fit into small size?
I like to buy Medium to Large inserts. Just fold it in the front or back on a smaller diaper.
So, yes, I fold the Large Loopydoo insert to fit S or M diaper too. 🙂
