One Size diaper
One size diaper adalah cloth diaper yang dikategorikan dalam kategori boleh dilaras saiznya dari saiz S kepada saiz L/XL bergantung pada jenama cloth diaper tersebut. Kebiasaannya ‘one size diaper’ ini boleh dipakai dari newborn sehinggalah ke fasa potty train juga.
Sized diaper : Cloth diaper jenis ini didatangkan pada saiz yang tertentu dan bersesuaian pada baby yang berada pada lingkungan berat dan saiz tersebut. Antara contoh sized cloth diaper yang terdapat di pasaran Malaysia adalah Itti Bitti SIO (Snap in one) dan Itti Bitti (All in One) dan dilabel (XS, Sm, Med, Large, or XL in most cases).
Duo Size: Cloth diaper ini mempunyai dua versi , biasanya dikenali sebagai saiz 1 atau 2 .
Newborn: Newborn diaper kebanyakannya boleh dipakai sejurus selepas bayi dilahirkan dan biasanya boleh dipakai sehingga 4 ke 6 bulan bergantung pada jenama. Antara Newborn diaper yang boleh didapati di pasaran Malaysia adalah Grovia Newborn aio (all in one) yang tengah sale 40% sekarang.
3-Step Rise: This one size diaper uses a snap down rise system with 3 size settings.
4-Step Rise: This one size diaper uses a snap down rise system with 4 size settings.
Sized: This diaper only comes in sizes (XS, Sm, Med, Large, or XL in most cases).
One Size Elastic Adjustable Button Elastic: This diaper is sized using button hole elastic in the legs (and sometimes also in the waist).
Free Size Elastic: This diaper is sized using elastic in the waist that is tightened or loosened with a toggle and held in place. Ni biasa kita jumpa pada Charlie Banana cloth diaper.
Free Size: This diaper has no sizing system but fits babies of multiple sizes.
Internal Snap Down Rise Adjustment: This diaper uses a snap down rise system located on the inside of the diaper to adjust the rise. Diaper yang guna sistem ini memang locally not selling in malaysia.
Contoh : Bottombumpers
Fold Over Rise: This diaper is sized by folding the front of the diaper over then securing the closure (snaps or Velcro) to control the rise. Sometimes this system is in conjunction with rise snaps.
Dual Size: This diaper has 2 versions, usually referred to as Size 1 and Size 2. It either comes just as these sizes or has adjustments within those ranges on the diaper.
This diaper is one piece and most like a disposable.
All-in-Two: This diaper is a 2 part system that usually has a waterproof shell and an absorbent soaker or disposable insert. The shell can be reused multiple times, the dirty soaker can be replaced with a fresh one.
All-in-Three: Diapers in this category can usually be used in many ways, as an All-in-Two or as a pocket or cover.
Pocket: This diaper is usually a waterproof shell with a lining into which an absorbent insert can be stuffed.
Cover: This diaper is just the waterproof shell that has to be used over a non-waterproof diaper.
Fitted: This diaper is not waterproof. It needs to be used with a cover.
Prefold: This is a rectangular piece of absorbent material (usually cotton, but can behemp/bamboo/or others) with more layers in the middle.
Flat: This is a rectangular or square piece of material that can be folded in many ways to fit around a baby or laid in a diaper cover. It is usually only 1 layer (most common material is birdseye cotton) so it dries quickly.
Sleeve: This diaper functions like a pocket and an All-in-One. It has an opening on the front and back. The insert will agitate out in the wash but needs to be re-stuffed when clean.
Tongue-Style All-in-One: This diaper has an insert that is only attached at one end. It will still need to be stuffed after washing but the insert stays attached. You do not need to un-stuff before washing.
Snap-in-One: This diaper is often referred to as an All-in-One, however the soaker snaps into place. You can usually leave it snapped in to wash. Also usually has options for more inserts. Faster drying than true sewn in AIO’s.
Hybrid: this diaper has a re-usable shell but can be used with disposable inserts. Antara contoh yang paling simple bagi jenis ini adalah semestinya grovia.
Microfiber: Mikrofiber ni material yang diperbuat daripada polyester dan dikategori di bawah material sintetik. Ia banyak juga digunakan di dalam industri pembersihan. ia sangat menyerap dengan baik ( 8 kali ganda dari berat) dan tidak mahal .
Microfiber sedikit ‘bulky’ jika dibandingkan dengan material organic yang lain namun ia cepat kering. Microfiber paling banyak digunakan di dalam kebanyakn cloth diaper.
Cotton: Diapers with cotton inserts or soakers are not as absorbent as certain other materials, but have the boasting rights to being a natural fiber that is less likely to have build-up or stink issues.
Bamboo: As a material, bamboo has to go through processing that essentially makes it the same as Rayon, so it is usually referred to as Rayon from Bamboo Fibers. Bamboo is a fast growing crop and very absorbent.
This material is ultra trim and very absorbent, making it perfect for the heavy wetter or for overnight diapers. It is often blended with cotton to make a hemp jersey that is softer than plain hemp inserts or soakers. Since hemp cannot be grown in the US all hemp is imported.
Micro-Terry-Adalah nama lain untuk microfiber
Microfleece- This material is synthetic and made from polyester. It wicks moisture away from the baby’s skin. After many washes it often pills up (like a sweater.) It has a tendency to attract build-up. Di Malaysia banyak jumpa brand yang guna microfleece as a lining material, seperti charlie banana.
Suedecloth- Same as microfleece, material suede is synthetic and made from polyester. It wicks moisture away from the baby’s skin. It remains smooth after many washes. It has a tendency to attract build-up. Antara cloth diaper yang menggunakan suede as a lining material is Bumgenius and itti bitti as a lining on the top of their soaker.
Bamboo Fleece: Fleece derived from bamboo. It does not stay as dry as a synthetic fleece.
Bamboo Terry – looped terry derived from bamboo fibers. Bamboo terry ni mudah reput and degradable. So jika cloth diaper yang anda guna menggunakan bamboo terry as a diaper liner, harus lah berhati-hati and handle with care
Bamboo Velour – Velour (tiny fur like hairs that feel soft and buttery) derived from bamboo fibers.
Cotton Velour- Velour (tiny fur like hairs that feel soft and buttery) derived from cotton.
Hemp/Cotton- A Hemp/Cotton blend. It doesn’t wash up as soft as others on this list but is natural and has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties.
PUL- Polyurethane Laminate has one layer of polyester (facing the outside of the diaper) with a laminate on the inside which makes it waterproof. This laminate is shiny when exposed, like in many diaper covers. PUL material sangat meluas digunakan dan hampir kesemua brand menggunakan PUL sebagai outer material.
TPU- Thermoplastic Polyurethane. TPU is manufactured in a way that makes it more environmentally friendly than PUL as well as making it biodegrade faster than PUL.
Fleece dihasilkan dari material polyester, kadangkala ia juga dihasilkan daripada bahan berunsur plastik yang dikitar semula yang menjadikan ia material yang kalis air. Material ini breathabledan tidak mahal.
ia banyak digunakan sebagai cover
Wool: This material is used for covers and soakers and can be handknit from wool yarns, factory knit, or made into an interlock (tightly woven) material and sewn into covers. Wool is waterproof, breathable, and able to be used many times before washing because it is “self cleaning.” It will need to be lanolized to maintain waterproofness.
Minkee- Minkee (or minky) is a super soft fabric made from polyester (microfiber) than is often places over TPU or PUL but not always. It often comes in vivid colors and prints. Material minky ni memang gebu dan selalu didatangkan dengan prints yang cantik-cantik. Itti bitti cloth diaper menggunakan minky material sebagai outer material untuk cloth diaper mereka.
PUL with Cotton Knit: Sometimes diapers are made with PUL but covered in decorative cotton knit fabric. This makes for a very colorful and decorative diaper but depending on the quality of the sewing, it can lead to wicking (moisture moving from the inside of the diaper to the outside cotton material.). Cotton knit banyak digunakan pada fitted diaper.
