Why do cloth diapers leak more than disposable diapers?

  • Whereas disposable diapers contain toxic chemical beads that absorb moisture, cloth diapers are made of naturally absorbent fabrics. As a result, cloth diapers need to be changed more often. Waiting too long to change a diaper can cause leaks.
  • There are other causes for leaks as well, such as incorrect use of an insert or residue buildup over time. These problems are easily solved.
