Why you should break up with your microfiber cloth diaper inserts

March 24, 2015

Cloth Diapers, Recommended

They were bulky. We got compression leaks. AND why did they still smell even though everything was clean?! I’m talking about my microfiber inserts. Many pocket cloth diapers come with them; I had a ton from my Kawaii Goodnight Heavy Wetters. I was SOOO happy when I was able to trade up and finally break up with my microfiber forever.

Microfiber (MF) absorbs fast and a lot. It’s less expensive to make than natural fiber inserts like hemp because the material is synthetic (man-made). Microfiber tends to have a shorter lifespan than other inserts as well. I’ve heard some people say after a year their MF was already shot. Because of the synthetic material, it also tends to hold onto stink more than other kinds of cloth diaper materials. Kim at Dirty Diaper Laundry has a great description with photos that explains exactly why that happens. Stink is not the only problem, hard water mineral buildup also occurs in a MF insert faster than a natural fiber insert because of the same reasons.

As I mentioned, I had a ton of microfiber inserts. When I finally had enough replacements, I packaged them up and donated them to Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. They still worked. But I had found something WAY better…

Geffen Baby Super Absorbers and Super Absorber Plus! 

You may notice that Geffen Baby is a sponsor of AACD. I am blessed and honored to be able to work with Geffen Baby. I am NOT recommending their products because of that or any products they have sent me for review…

I am truly and honestly a Geffen Baby Fan Girl! <3

If you follow me and especially if you are in our All About Cloth Diapers Facebook Chat group (go join!), you know that I sound like a broken record sometimes about this. Whenever someone mentions that they are thinking about switching microfiber inserts out or looking for trim, absorbent inserts….I say Geffen Baby!

Last year I wrote that Geffen Baby was a game changer for me! I had been introduced to their Jersey Hemp Prefold and fell…in…love. Since then I have had the pleasure of also trying the universal inserts and I can say they are equally amazing.

Geffen Baby’s Universal Absorbers (available in different sizes and absorbencies)  are made to be compatible with all brands of cloth diapers.  The best part (besides being trim and absorbent) is that they are made in the USA! I love US and Canada made products, don’t you?

I know that MF comes with many pocket diapers and it is an added expense to buy different inserts to use instead. I’m not saying that microfiber won’t work or that it is evil; it does work for many people. What I am saying is that there is a choice…a better, amazing choice!

Hemp/cotton blend inserts are the most absorbent and natural option you can find. They will also be the trimmest. Finally, hemp washes easily and doesn’t hold onto smell as it is naturally antimicrobial. Just be sure that you dry them fully (either hanging or machine). I’ve never had this problem, but some people say hemp can smell if not dried thoroughly. Although wouldn’t anything smell if it was stored damp?

There are some brands of hemp that tend to get crunchy with use. I’ve not found that to be the case with any of Geffen Baby’s products. They have stayed soft in my hard water wash after wash. BTW, Geffen Baby products have the HIGHEST percentage of hemp that is available on the market!

You can mix and match inserts and prefolds in any brand cover. The only rule you need to follow is that if they fit, you can use it!

If you’ve been thinking about breaking up with your microfiber inserts or just upgrading from whatever you currently use, you’ve got to look into Geffen Baby!

If you are starting at the newborn stage you might want to start with the Super Absorbers (there are smaller sizes available). The Super absorber can be folded to a length that will work in any cloth diaper, even tiny ones! Even folded in half these are still really trim. You can stuff in a pocket cloth diaper or just laying inside any cover. The Absorbers can go directly against baby’s skin with no worries.

You can buy these in 3 packs and they are only $4 per insert! It is really a great investment because they will last through potty training and for multiple babies.

If you are switching or stocking up a little later (after the 3-6 months stage) you could totally go with the Geffen Baby Super Absorber Plus! They are more absorbent and can still be folded to fit into smaller diapers.

I have to tell you that when I first saw these in person, I thought…”Come on! What is that going to absorb? It’s so thin, there’s nothing to it.” Boy did I get proven wrong! I did at home absorbency tests on my cloth diapers and found Geffen products to be at the top. As thin as the Super Absorber Plus was it held 9 oz! You have got to check the other absorbency results out! Click here for that post.

These inserts are trim, which means you can totally double and even triple them for the appropriate amount of absorbency. Three of the Plus would be 26 oz of absorbtion using my tests (unofficial). They would still be pretty trim for any cloth diaper, much less a night cloth diaper! I’m no professional photog, so please excuse the bad cell pics. I couldn’t seem to get a good close up! But these things are trim!

Break up with your microfiber! Upgrade your leaky inserts! Your cloth diapers will be the trimmest around and you won’t look back!

Anyone ever try Geffen Baby products? Do you love them as much as I do?

    Maybe you can help me! I am wondering how to tell if my current inserts are MF or cloth, and I can’t find this information anywhere! I’ve been purchasing pocket diapers used and it never occurred to me to ask. Any helpful hints? The inserts you’ve tested seem amazing.

    • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

      Due to the way Microfiber is made it tends to hold onto smell more than other materials. They are also prone to compression leaks which means the weight of the baby literally pushes pee back out and causes leaks. Microfiber inserts have an almost scratchy feel to them. Your fingers might feel a little dry after touching them. Many pockets come exclusively with Microfiber inserts. Do you know what brand diapers they came with? I could better tell with that info. Thanks!

      @Lisa. I don’t know if this will help. But hold 2 inserts (stacked) for about 5 mins in your bare hands. If afterwards your hands feel dried out. Then they are microfibers. When I use to use them in my pocket diapers. My hands would be so dried out, after stuffing my son’s diapers.

    Since I began my cloth diapering journey with our 4 month old son, I’ve begun to figure out that microfiber inserts are cheap for a reason. Even the process of prepping them for use took a toll on the edges. I left my judgements aside until I used one, only for the diaper to leak while I was holding him.., lol. Long story short… not initially impressed by the quality of the inserts- or the performance! Since then I’be been frugally building a stadh of inserts made from natural fibers. I Love the research you’ve compiled on Geffen- it backs all of the amazing things that I’be heard. I Would love to win these and test them out for myself! : )

    I’d love to try these inserts because I feel like the microfibers are so bulky. She’s a heavy wetter at night (and I like sleep, so I tend to let her go longer between changes) and stacking 2 microfibers or more gets SO bulky. I feel like I have to put her in bigger pants to fit over the diaper. A sleeker system would be nice!

    I live in California & we’re in a drought. I could put the inserts outside when it rains to absorb the rainwater & use it to do laundry. That’s what these are for, right? Or I could use them for nighttime diapering so my kids’ butts don’t look so ginormous.

Geffen is da bomb!

    I live in a remote area that gets it’s water through a desalination plant, and I think it’s making my MF inserts stink. Plus, I am ready to part with MF because I’m tired of double and triple checking to make sure my liners haven’t bunched up and exposed the MF layer underneath to baby’s skin (I use gDiapers or Flip covers). The gCloth cotton/hemp liners are fine for daytime, but I want a trimmer and more naturally-sourced insert for naps and night time.

    These would probably help out my little guy at night! He’s 8 months old and though I’ve been CD’ing since he was 1 month, I’ve only recently started to do so overnight. Pockets have been working out great because he hates the wet feeling with prefolds. But, I’ve been super stuffing them to avoid leaks, giving him the classic hockey player butt. The Geffens look like they would take a lot of that bulk away without reducing absorbency!

    I have been cloth diapering for almost 2 years now and am about to throw in the towel if my strip/bleach soaks don’t work. I haven’t noticed a smell since stripping (thank goodness) but I have noticed that he is leaking when I double stuff (microfiber and Thristies hemp) b.c the fit around the legs isn’t as snug as it should be. I have been eyeballing these inserts but can’t bring myself to spend more money (have been replacing elastic in 18 of my 32 diapers over the past few months). It would make me so happy to have a few of the Geffen Baby inserts for my super heavy wetter.

    OMG I need these in my life! My little man is a serious heavy wetter AND has chunky thighs & a big booty so between the double stuffed bulky diaper and his stature, finding pants & shorts to fit is SO hard! A trimmer option for the diapers would be a welcomed breath of fresh air!

Moreover, my research has driven me away from microfiber already, and I’m looking at diapers with only natural fibers for inserts, interior liners, possibly even covers, etc, so that makes it even more expensive! But, of course, I want only the best for my baby. Please help me win something wonderful for my stash! Thanks :)

    I am a closet cloth diaperer. I haven’t told my parents (though we live 2 miles from them and they see their granddaughter often). I haven’t told any of my 4 brothers and sisters (one saw a stray post on Facebook and figured it out, but she lives in a different country) and I haven’t told any of my husband’s 8 siblings. I haven’t told any of my friends and neighbors. I’m not totally sure why, maybe its because of the “leaks and stink” questions (Though so far we are good about no stink and seldom have a leak). I don’t even have many people hold the baby because I don’t want them to notice the extra fluffy bottom. Maybe with some new ultra trim, super absorbent, less likely to stink inserts I will finally COME OUT OF THE CLOSET!

Poor microfiber was getting soaked and caused major leaks in less than an hour! Hemp boosters basically have to go in every one of my son’s diapers at this point, which is a pretty penny when you have a ton… So this little pack of beauties would get well loved in my home :) and just for shoots and giggles, here’s a little Haiku ditty for you:

    You have hosted some amazing giveaways on this site, Jennifer, but this one is BY FAR the one I’d like to win most. I have a 4 month old daughter who has been in cloth since day one and I am currently in the process of breaking up with my microfiber. Why oh WHY are they automatically included with so many pockets? I have three Geffen Baby Super Absorbers and three Quick Absorbers Plus and I am in LOVE. I have a few other hemp/blends and they don’t work as well, take longer to try and/or are way thicker. Geffen Baby inserts are a dream. You said it. You said it a LOT. But for some reason I still had to test for myself and buy a few other brands. Oy! In the end, you were right (of course!) and I hope to be able to switch out all of my microfiber for Super Absorbers Plus eventually. Now, what to do with all those dang microfiber inserts?! Random story: I didn’t really like the Happy Heiney’s diapers for my daughter but their redeeming quality is that the microfiber was just a cloth that you have to fold. Easier to convert to use for cleaning ;) I seriously do appreciate AACD and the Facebook page and group so much. Keep it up. Oh, and PICK ME for this giveaway – I am an AACD and Geffen Baby superfan. I love talking to people about cloth and have even convinced a few friends to go cloth because I make it sound so easy. (It’s the truth!)

    But, now that baby girl is getting older we have to use more inserts. How many is too many?! We are up to 3 inserts at night and she is only 12 months. Ugh! Thinner would be better! Thanks!

    I would love to win these because my little girl is a Super Pee-er Plus and even sposies can’t contain her nighttime tsunamis. Also, her booty is snooty and only has love for cotton, bamboo and hemp. <3 Mommy would be changing over the whole stash to Geffen if we could afford it.

    I’ve never tried microfiber. When I ordered some pockets from Sunbaby I chose the package without inserts because I had already been warned away from microfiber. In a feat of amazement, we made it a whole year cloth diapering with Gerber brand “prefolds” and flats. I’m sure you’ve heard how attrocious those are. It was all we could afford and I was determined to make it work. Towards the end we were doing a prefold with a folded flat during the day and three (three!) definitely not trim prefolds for nighttime, and still had leaks. We were finally able to buy 14 used unbranded diaper service quality prefolds and 6 Bumpkins toddler prefolds. I never knew how amazing REAL cloth diapers were! The toddler prefolds make for excellent, though large, night dipes. I’ve heard nothing but incredible feedback about Geffen Baby, and would love to try their jersey hemp prefolds one day, but alas, it’s not an adfordable option for us right now. I would really love to give Geffen Baby a shot, but I hope everyone knows that cloth diapering is possible with even the bottom barrel products out there!

    Geffen Baby looks so amazing, these regular inserts and prefolds are driving me crazy. Just starting my stash after a seven month slump, wasn’t prepared to fully commit and take the jump. But disposable was getting to pricy and even though we had a few leaks in cloth before I wouldn’t let that frighten me. Now no turning back, happy to be using cloth, many reasons why it’s great, I’ll be a pro in no time, watch out.

I’m so ready to turn them into floor mops, but with two in diapers I have to just use what I’ve got. I have made a few bamboo inserts, but I rarely find time to make more, and I’ve just about run out of fabric. I need something soon!

      Oh, and my three-year-old has super sensitive skin. He moves around a lot in his sleep, so if things aren’t perfect he gets rashes and even blisters. Not to mention the leaking (though, we take care of the leaking problem by putting wool covers over all nighttime diapers)! I can’t even use MF inside a pocket diaper at night for him unless there is a natural fiber insert between him and the MF! If his diaper is too bulky it PINCHES (causing blisters) and/or leaks. I really want a nice, gentle, and trim option for him. I think maybe bamboo and hemp together may do the trick, along with the wool cover.

Fitteds & inserts & wool galore, we still have to change his diaper 3-4 times per night.

    Once upon a time there was a brand new mommy in town named Ebony. She had made it through a very successful 5 weeks of mommyhood and thought everything was perfect! She has rented a set of newborn cloth diapers but was noticing them getting to be a bit snug on her almost 10lb girl (Kennedy) so her plans were to order some one size pocket diapers this week to start her stash.

    Last night Ebony realized she may need to press the jump start button on those one size orders because after she put kennedy to sleep after a 3am change and feed, all of a sudden ebony felt something running down her leg! “Oh no!” She thought. She looked down at her legs and saw moisture. As she looked closer, there was the yellow disaster! Baby poop all over her leg, her bed sheets, and her mattress cover!!

    Today she noticed an online contest at AACD she could enter for some super absorbant Geffan inserts! She jumped on the opportunity to enter as this could be her saving grace! If she wins, she may have the key to battling the nighttime getting-pooped-ons!!

    I may also be in the minority, but I like both (synthetic and natural)! Without microfiber I couldn’t have afforded the AIO diapers that are in my stash. AIO diapers with bamboo, cotton or hemp come with a higher price tag. Our heavy wetter pockets have worked for over a year for our toddler at night and for only $12.

    Our microfiber inserts have performed just fine for 2 plus years; they don’t seem to be any harder to clean than my hemp or cotton or bamboo. But I agree that they feel horrible against your hand! I have to put lotion on before folding and sorting my diapers because the microfiber snags on my skin. (shudder)

    I’m a big fan of Geffen, too, but haven’t actually tried the absorbers yet – shocking, I know! My experience is limited to the flats and prefolds, and they are marvelous.

    I broke up with microfiber 8.5 years ago when my first cloth diapered baby was little. It was a short-lived relationship. At first microfiber seemed so nice – soft, absorbent, inexpensive. I was smitten. But things turned sour quickly. I found out that beneath those surface good qualities lurked a dark side… The build-up! The repelling! The smell! Ugh! I had fallen for microfiber but quickly realized I had made a mistake. It was time to break up. It was with a sense of relief that I parted ways with all my microfiber inserts. In their place I discovered the joys & beauty of NATURAL FIBERS. Ah me. They were perfect. Trim, absorbent, no repelling, no stink. They lasted through 3 more cloth diapered babies!! I am completely in love with natural fibers in my diapering. I’ve never met this Geffen Baby you speak of, but I just ordered a jersey prefold to try out!! I have a brand new baby and I’d love to try the universal absorbers!! I think it will be a true love connection. <3

    My jus and and I live and work in West Africa – cloth diapering is a must (and a blessing) in our lives. The problem has been we haven’t been back to the states since we got pregnant a miracle really so our stash is not ideal. I have a whole drawer of MF I have bought with used diapers here or been given for free when people find out we are cloth diapering. My parents brought out some flats and prefolds but not near enough- though I tend to pray my diapers are dry between washes before pulling out MF for my super heavy wetter. I love the price point of these inserts and thin is ideal for trying to bring back enough to get us through the next likely two years of diapering in our suitcases this summer

    Not a fan of microfiber… And neither is my heavy wetter!! So grateful I discovered hemp before I gave up cloth diapers completely, but I’d still love to have more. I keep hearing all the fan girls talk about how amazing Geffen is! ;)

    I love a fluffy bum as much as any cloth diaper momma but when do you say when? My little walker is doing great but when we use our mf inserts her fluff gets so big it throws her off balance. Would love to give something more trim a try!

    I’ve slowly been trading out all my microfiber for natural fibers. I was doing pretty good until baby #2 was born, then I had to pull the microfiber back out of storage to have enough diapers between two kiddos. Still trying to add more natural fibers though, so the microfiber can go away for good. Once I get to that point I’ll see about donating the microfiber – I didn’t know that just inserts could be donated!

    Read the post and very interested in upgrading from microfiber. We are on a budget with our first earthly child after a decade of trying and I’m doing my best to cloth diaper. Recently dove in and invested in some all in one’s and covers but the prefolds are old and actually the inserts aren’t great either. I read what you said about the Geffen Baby brand and looked at their website, I have to say I’m thinking about getting some inserts and prefolds now.

    I have a bunch of bamboo inserts but after now going on child number three some of them are starting to break down and are not working as well as I recall them working from before. I need a solution for my youngest who is extremely sensitive to being wet, and can be a very heavy wetter, at night and does not sleep. Momma needs sleep, she is 1 year old, have pity on me. Yeah my desperate plea, that’s what I’m hoping will get me to win. :)

    I would love to win because I am just starting out on this CD journey and most of my inserts are MF. I’m not a fan of the bulk because of the way it makes my little girl’s clothes fit (vain, I know). I’d love to be able to CD, get the absorbency she needs and still have her clothes fit!

    I’d love to win because I’ve been noticing a smell from my microfiber, but can afford to buy all new inserts, especially because I don’t want to get something that won’t work. I’ve heard that hemp doesn’t absorb fast enough, which is why I’ve been hesitant to use it alone in my diapers.

    I should/want to win because I have 2 in diapers and have about half of my inserts are micro fiber and I’m really trying to swap them out. Also I’d love to win because I don’t resell my diapers I hand them down. :-) I’ve noticed too that when I use mf in my toddlers flips his butt gets redder sooner.

    I’d love to get rid of the 3 in (ok probably an exaggeration, but he probably doesn’t think so) thick padding on my son’s booty at night. Before he gets changed in the morning, for the little bit we play after he eats, he looks like he’s struggling to sit up because of all the extra fluff. lol

I don’t have enough room in my diaper bag for the diapers and the clothes!

    I would love to try these. I am new to cloth diapering and only have a couple of hemp inserts. I have a couple of Thirsties duo inserts that came with my Thirsties pockets, but I would love to switch out the MF in my other diapers because I have seen how much more absorbant my hemp inserts are. When using the hemp inserts and I change him, he still feels completely dry which I love!!

    I would love to try Geffen’s inserts! We primarily use prefolds due to having a heavy wetter and as much as I would love to have a huge stash of natural fiber inserts for my pockets they are expensive and so I only have the mf that come with/bought off other mama’s old stashes. We have a heavy wetter so overnights are fun sometimes (and she is a bed sharer so we sleep with a “pee pad” under us plus I noticed over the winter if she leaked through the diaper her fleece sleepers kept it in…but winter is ending…).

    I would love to break up with my mf inserts not only for the absorbency issues but also for the trimness you speak of with Geffen…it would be music to my ears if I didn’t need to hear my mom sing “I like big butts” when my lo walked in the room wearing her pockets :)

    I absolutely love the few Geffen prefolds I am lucky enough to own! I think I should win because my microfibers STINK literally and figuratively!! I have to strip them once a month so we can still breathe after my son pees! And the overnight diapers will knock you out :) figuratively, they stink because the only time I have leaks is with the microfibers. Zero issues with any of my bamboo and hemp inserts or cotton/jersey prefolds.

    ‘Twas the night before a Tuesday when all thru the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. Then what should my ears start to hear but a tiny tinkle of an alarm so near. Three snoozes later a mad dash to wake. The daughter is late the bus she will not make. The baby wakes irritated from a peaceful rest as mom scoops him up to her chest. A groan and a moan are all too near as my heavy wetter has again appeared. Microfiber curse you! A fist I do shake as daughter just giggles for the bus she won’t take.

    I haven’t tried anything from Geffen Baby. We are mostly a prefold house, but the pockets I do have with microfiber inserts are used for people not familiar with cloth. I stuff with bamboo inserts. How does hemp compare to bamboo? So far, bamboo has not impressed me so I am hesitant to spend more money on an okay solution.

I have 3 sister in laws that have CD’d for years and I thought they were crazy! Now I’m addicted to them, I am getting my other mommy friends on trying them and hate that I didn’t use them for all my kids! There is so much to learn, so many options, and it’s hard to know what is going to work and what is worth the investment! I have mostly all MF inserts for my new diapers, but anxious to try other types of inserts!

    I don’t love them as much, but I have two heavy wetters. Prefolds are the only thing I’ve had success with, we love Real Nappies. I got 6 of the super absorbers plus (the purple around the edge) for extra padding for my oldest at night. When we tried it in a pocket it didn’t even hold one pee!

    • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

      That doesn’t make sense. Were you using more than one? At night you would totally need to. If it was just one I see why it would leak. I use three and it is really trim and my kid pees a ton and we never have a leak. I would try that and it should solve your issue.

    I know I am in the minority here – and truth be told, I would rather switch to all natural – BUT – I have absolutely NO problems with microfiber! I don’t know why, but I have inserts I’ve used since my first was a baby (2008) and they still work perfectly well. They stink if I don’t use the right combo of detergent and bleach every month. But when I do that, they are just fine. They absorb perfectly well and are just as clean as ever.

    That said, I cannot for the life of me get behind hemp. I hate hemp inserts. They are terrible and leak before I can say boo. Maybe it’s my water. I don’t know, but I’m happy the way things are (especially being on baby #3 and not wanting to spend another dollar on diapers. I replace the elastic as needed and we’re good).

    • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

      Which brand of hemp inserts are you using Julia? Hemp is a slow absorber. So for some brands they work best under another faster absorbing insert like bamboo. Thirsties Hemp Inserts leak for me if directly against baby. But put them under anything else and they are…well…thirsty! Try your hemp again if you can but put a cotton or bamboo blend, even a MF and you might see a world of difference! :)
