Based on types the baby diaper market is segmented into biodegradable diapers, training nappy, cloth diapers, swim pants, and disposable diapers. Cloth diapers were firstly mass produced in U.S in 1887. The cloth diapers can be classified as fitted cloth diapers, all in one cloth diapers, flat cloth diapers and pre-fold cloth diapers among others. Disposable diapers are gaining popularity over the traditional cloth diapers as they offer high absorption which lowers the possibility of sogging the cloths. Disposable diapers can be easily disposed therefore save the efforts of washing. Furthermore, diapers decrease the distress caused and also prevent rashes caused due to constant dampness. The disposable diapers are developed to prohibit the breeding of microbes. Biodegradable diapers are attaining traction in recent years because of rising environmental concerns.
Real Nappies cotton cloth diapers are prefolded which means the prefold cloth diaper’s 3 panels are folded and sewn together each having up to eight layers for superior absorbency. The Real Nappies prefold cloth diaper is thicker in the middle to offer more absorbency exactly where it’s needed without it being bulky.
We set out to demystify cloth diapering and to find the very best of 15 popular cloth systems. Over a year-long testing period, we put the top competing diapers through intensive evaluation including daily hands on testing, lab tests of absorbency, research about eco-health, side-by-side comparison fit, leakage, and comfort for baby, and of course, ease-of-use for parents and caregivers. While many parents find modern cloth systems easier to use than expected, diapering with cloth can be intimidating in both selection of the right brand, and learning how to use the diaper system. There is a lot to consider and to that end we performed our most extensive test ever, teaming up a pediatrician and a cloth diapering preschool teacher (along with a toddler and infant respectively), to try each competing brand to find the very best.

Time to get crafty! Buy a pack of plain white cloth diaper pre-folds at your local baby store. Even the huge chains carry these, although I don't know anyone who actually use them for diapers. I like the Gerber brand because they are nice and thick.
