Ask Erika: Does Stay Dry fabric really keep my baby dry?

Does Stay Dry fabric really keep my baby dry?


I love the idea of the Stay Dry fabric, as I’m often worried about my baby’s diaper being wet against her skin for too long, but I have to wonder, does it really work?



YES! Cloth diapers have come a long way since I first started designing reliable, leak-free systems and this, in my opinion, is one of the best innovations so far.

Before I get into it, let me say that as long as you are changing your baby frequently enough during the day, you don’t need to worry about the wetness of a cotton or bamboo diaper and our Sandy’s Fitted diapers are a favorite of many for overnight (yes, baby can sleep through the night despite a wet diaper!).

That said, if you are concerned you can use a stay-dry liner, stay-dry inserts for the Wizard Duo line (including our overnight inserts), or the Sandy’s Trim Fit with a stay-dry inner.

Stay Dry fabric is light, breathable and moves wetness away from your baby’s skin into the absorbent diaper core beneath. This keeps your baby feeling dry and comfortable, even in a urine saturated diaper! This technology allows your little one to wear their diaper longer, making nap time, night time, long car rides, and leaving them with the sitter a breeze!

You might wonder why we don’t use fleece as a stay-dry option. Fleece is hydrophobic and hydrophobic materials tend to repel water. Diapers that use polar fleece directly against baby’s skin will have a harder time absorbing urine. It can simply bead up and roll out the leg before it has a chance to soak in.

There are benefits to all the fabrics that Mother ease diapers and inserts are offered in, but rest assured, the Stay Dry option is a great choice for comfort, absorbency, and healthy skin!
