Geffen Baby Quick Absorbers and Wipes Review


Geffen Baby is quickly gaining points in my book as a fantastic company to support.

A lot may have to do with the fact that their marketing guru is Maria from  She is one of the sweetest people and I love her honesty.

Geffen Baby is a relatively new company based out of L.A. The majority of their products are Made in the USA.  Only the Pakistani prefolds are made overseas.

Dearest Diapers gave me the opportunity to try out the Newborn Quick Absorbers and Cotton Wipes.

A unique quality of Geffen Baby prefolds and absorbers (doublers/inserts) is the 60% hemp, 40% organic cotton jersey content.

Hemp is an amazing absorber and has anti-mildew and anti-microbial properties.  100% hemp becomes crunchy over time but with the added cotton jersey you get softness without compromising the benefits of hemp.

The Newborn Quick Absorbers are 9″ long and can be used as a doubler in any sized diaper.


I was surprised at just how thirsty these doublers are.  I added one to Finley’s nighttime diaper (one we had previously had leaks with) and he woke with dry pants.

The trimness of the Absorbers allows for you to add one or two to a diaper without significantly increasing the bulk.

Doublers are, in my opinion, one of those products you need to have in your stash.  Everyone has those times when you need to add more absorbency but can’t pad your baby’s bum too much more.  Long car trips are a time when I use doublers every time.  There isn’t a guarantee that I will be able to change a diaper every 2 hours.

I was able to try out the Newborn Quick Absorbers but there are 6 other Absorbers for you to choose from.

Rana, owner of Dearest Diapers, has this wonderful chart to help you in your decision:


When making your cloth diaper purchases most parents don’t even think about cloth wipes.  I didn’t.  But, cloth wipes are a natural choice one would make when they are already using cloth diapers.

There are many different kinds of fabrics, sizes and variations that can be used for cloth wipes.  The Geffen Baby Wipes I am reviewing are made from 100% Organic Cotton, are a single layer and are sized at 9″x9″.


Many cloth wipes on the market are a bit smaller and I like the extra length.  Geffen Baby Wipes are very thin, allowing you to fold several in a container.  I was concerned that if they were super thin wouldn’t I get something on my hand??

I am happy to say that even when wiping a very nasty 27 month old bottom I didn’t get my hand soiled.  It does look like the solid is going to “pass through” the single layer but it doesn’t.

Dearest Diapers sells a 10-pack of wipes for $8.99.  90 cents a wipe is fantastic!  I still purchase disposable wipes for occasional use and that is such a waste.

I recommend having a couple dozen cloth wipes at least.  I find that we use them for everything and most end up in the bathrooms for bath time.

Many wonder what to put on the wipes for cleaning.  Water works just fine.  If you want to spice it up add some good smelling 100% essential oils and a drop or 2 or olive oil.  Or you can buy a concentrate wipes solution that smells awesome and is done for you.

I have tons of Scarlet’s Natural Hiney Honey Bites (my favorite! you would NOT be disappointed if you bought this brand!) and I usually end up just using water because I lose my spray bottle!

    I got a full stash of the new tots bots tini fit and I love them on my newborn, but he has been soaking through them with the doubler since 2 wks old. I found that a hemp babies doubler works well when folded down, so now I’m trying to decide if I should buy a bunch more of those or these geffen baby newborn inserts. Which do you think would add the most absorbency? Thanks!
