Cloth Diaper Basics: How to use Hemp
December 14, 2014 4:59 pm | by


One of the most frequently asked questions we receive about cloth diapers is, “How do I use hemp?”

This is a great question, and, to put it simply, there are many ways you can use hemp with cloth diapers.

Hemp is a natural, durable fabric that has antibacterial properties, which makes it great for diapers since they absorb moisture for long(ish) periods of time.

Hemp Babies was created for heavy wetters, parents who prefer a more natural solution to cloth diapering, or those who need to boost absorbency at night. It offers a variety of cloth diaper products made exclusively with hemp and certified organic cotton. Add extra absorbency to any cloth diaper with any of the Hemp Babies products below!

  • Hemp Babies Little Weeds are ideal inside for use in one-size cloth diapers that are on a small rise setting, whether a pocket style like bumGenius 4.0 or an all-in-one system such as bumGenius Freetime. Little Weeds feature two layers of hemp to ensure that your diapers wash clean easily and dry quickly. This small insert is specifically designed to fold in half for less bulk and four layers of absorbency, making it perfect for smaller cloth diapers.
  • Hemp Babies Bigger Weeds are similar to Little Weeds, but specifically designed to be used as an insert in a medium or large diaper or rise setting. Hemp Babies Bigger Weeds fold in thirds for six layers of hemp absorbency.
  • Hemp Babies Diaper Doublers are a preshaped insert that is available in two sizes – small or large. Since these are not folded, they are a trimmer choice than the other Hemp Babies inserts. The size and shape of the Hemp Babies Diaper Doublers make them ideal for use with a prefold, all-in-two, or hybrid style of diaper.

If you have any questions about your cloth diapers or hemp, give our customer service team a call at 1-314-892-1855 for personalized assistance.

    I’m a big fan of hemp diapers over cloth. I believe that we should be using hemp a lot more, especially for baby products! I also have a hemp baby blanket that I really love.

    Thanks for your help Brittney! You had answered my question on Facebook about what to use for a heavy wetter at night so I bought some hemp inserts and they are working great for night time!
