Post contains affiliate links. Most people know I puffy heart Geffen Baby products; so much so that I work with the company. The majority of their products are 100% USA made, 60% hemp/40% organic cotton, super soft, trim and absorbent.
My son was pretty teeny as a newborn, but he was a very heavy wetter. The diapers that fit him well weren’t absorbent enough beyond those first few days of dirtying a diaper every 20 minutes. I loved Geffen Baby prefolds in covers, and the absorbers made a fabulous AI2 in XS covers, but I needed something eeny teeny to fit in all my newborn diapers.
The Geffen Baby newborn quick absorbers are exactly what I needed 10 months ago! They are tiny versions of the Quick Absorbers/Quick Absorbers plus. 5 layers of 60% hemp/40% organic cotton that are U.S. made, so soft, and can be used in covers or pockets.
Here they are measured when brand new:
And after washing once (maybe twice?)
Hemp should be washed and dried at least 3 times before use, and it will continue to gain absorbency through 8-10 washes (sometimes more in my experience.) I tried the inserts in the newborn diapers when they were the size pictured above. After a few more washings and drying, they shrunk a bit more (see below) making them fit even better, but I didn’t photograph them all again!
Here they are in the XS Thirsties covers. I prefer a regular size absorber or a prefold in those since there is more room. I do not have a gPants newborn diaper, but these should fit them as well.
Then, there’s Rumparooz Lil Joeys. There is almost no room in between those gussets! The insert fit folded in half, but I don’t know if it would be too bulky on a baby.
The retail price is $9.85/3 pack. You can buy them from Geffen Baby for now, though retailers may choose to carry them as well. If you’d like to see Geffen Baby at your favorite store, as them to complete a wholesale application!
I have a business relationship with the company and received the inserts at no cost. I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own.
