When it comes to baby cloth diapers, not only are there so many different types to pick from but also so many different brands. I have broken down each type of cloth diaper in separate posts. So now, let me put it all together in one spot and list out the best cloth diaper.

When looking for cloth diapers, there are a few things you will want to consider when buying. Depending on the company, they will offer certain reward programs so you can earn free products when you order through them. Remember, cloth diapers are an investment. So it may seem like a lot at first, but it will pay off in the long run. These reward programs really do help! I’ve gotten a couple free diaper covers & prefolds free through rewards programs.

Another thing you will want to look for is a return policy or warranty program. Since again, cloth diapers are an investment, these aren’t something you are going to use a couple times. You will be using them over and over again, most likely for many years, on multiple kids. So you might want to make sure that wherever you are buying your diapers from, they have a good return policy or warranty in place.

I will list out some of the best cloth diaper options below. Again, there are SO many different ones out there. Most of them work in the same way, it will just be the quality of the diaper that differs from brand to brand. So, you can find some really affordable (cheap) cloth diapers, just remember…you get what you pay for. The ones I listed below are all really affordable. Some are slightly higher priced but all in the same ballpark.

Nicki’s Diapers

What I love about Nicki’s Diapers is they are local (shoutout to any other mommas in the Midwest)! So they ship right out of Wisconsin! They make awesome products though. Most of the cloth diapers I use are from Nicki’s Diapers. Some other aspects about Nicki’s Diapers that I love are:

AlvaBaby

AlvaBaby is a little differrent since it is China-based BUT that shouldn’t scare you away from this company. First reason why, because of this they can offer their products a little cheaper than the competitors. Their most popular items can be found on Amazon but if you want more of a selection of cloth diapers, go directly to their website & you can order there.

  • Replacement: they will send you a replacement if the following happens
    • your item was defective before using it
    • your item became defective within 3 months of using it
    • you didn’t receive your item (or got the wrong one)
  • Refunds: they will offer you a refund if your item is in “related-new” condition
  • Return: within 90 days
  • Fabric: bamboo
  • Cloth Diapers:
    • Newborn ~$30 (for 6 diapers)
    • Pocket Diaper ~$8-$10 each (most come with 1 diaper & 2 inserts)
    • Inserts ~$30 (12 inserts)
    • Swim Diaper ~$9-$15

Buttons Cloth Diapers were brought about by a husband & a wife at home in Washington.

Thirsties

Thirsties is another cool brand. What I love about Thirsties is that they are made in the USA! They focus on the health of the babies that will be wearing their diapers but also the health of the environment. They pick USA sourced components that will not only benefit the environment but also last wash after wash. All of their products are made in Colorado, by other mommas! Other great aspects about Thirsties:

  • Warranty: 1 year warranty after the original purchase date
  • Returns: if you aren’t happy, you can return your diaper as long as it isn’t used
  • Clean Products: their products are vinyl, phthalates & lead free
  • TONS of prints to pick from (some of the cutest, I think)
  • Different Fabrics:
    • Hemp
    • Organic Cotton
  • Cloth Diapers:
    • Newborn ~$17
    • All in One ~$27
    • Fitted Cloth Diaper ~$27

    • Diaper Cover ~$14
    • Prefold ~9 each
    • Inserts ~$19

Thirsties offers one cloth diaper that I haven’t seen at other places; the “duo wrap”. This cloth diaper is like the regular cloth diaper cover but it has an adjustable rise that will allow the diaper to last from birth of your baby to potty training!

OsoCozy

These diapers are 100% cotton, which means you’ll love that they don’t contain the synthetic oil based fibers that are found in many products. What’s also nice about OsoCozy, is that they offer high quality products…but on a wide range too. So, they offer unbleached fabrics, bleached fabrics and organic fabrics. Here are some aspects of OsoCozy you’ll want to know if you are considering buying cloth diapers:

  • Organic Products: in some of their products they offer organic options which means they are GOTS (global organic textile standard) certified 100% organic cotton (& sewn in the USA by stay at home moms and grandmas…..SO SWEET)

Nora’s Nursery

Nora’s Nursery is a very popular brand…& for good reason. They offer quality diapers but at lower prices than some of the others out there. Nora’s doesn’t’t have the selection of diapers that the others do though (like prefolds, all in one, all in two, etc.). They sell pocket diapers, which is a very popular option in cloth diapering. What’s also nice is that when you buy from Nora’s Nursery, you will pretty much get everything you need with the one purchase. With each set they offer, you will get your diaper, your insert & a wet bag! Here are some things to note when considering buying from Nora’s Nursery:

 

  • Warranty:
    • 365 day warranty on all of their snaps
    • 120 day warranty on elastics
    • 120 day warranty on all sewing (stitching & seams)
  • Buy in Bulk: Nora’s sells their diapers in “sets”, so you multiple diapers per set
  • Fabric: the inserts are 4-layer bamboo polyester (you’ll love how soft these are!)
  • Cloth Diapers: again, they sell pocket diapers but they have many different cute sets to pick from (unisex, girls & boys)
    • 7 pack (7 cloth pocket diapers, 7 inserts, 1 wet bag)
    • 4 pack (4 cloth pocket diapers, 4 inserts)

To make these a little easier to compare, let’s look at all of the basic information in one chart. Keep in mind that the price points vary since some of the companies listed sell their cloth diapers in sets, so you will be getting more than one cloth diaper for the price.

 

If you are just getting started with cloth diapers and still don’t know where to start, leave a comment below or email me. I would love to help! You can’t go wrong with any of the ones listed above but I know it can still be overwhelming to figure out which one will be the best fit for you & your little one. Also, if there are any cloth diapers you have used that aren’t listed above, let me know! I’d love to hear of other great brands 🙂

All the best,
