This is so exciting for me. Have you ever tried something so amazing that it was a total game changer? I have tried A LOT of different kinds of diapers and inserts. This is one you need to check out!
I have a passion for supporting products that are made in America. Throw in easy to wash and use, made to last, quality materials at a great price…I say these are game changers because if I had the money I would seriously replace every…single… insert in all my diapers with this one thing. They absorb more than anything else I’ve ever tried and because they are a…prefold…they wash clean with no effort.
Alright…alright…I am totally keeping you in suspense. Drum roll please…
It’s Geffen Baby Prefolds!
I have fallen head over heels in love with Geffen Baby’s Jersey Prefolds. They stay soft wash after wash. Absolutely no pilling. No loose threads. And I swear it seems like they could absorb all the water in our kiddie pool if I threw them in. Well, almost anyway.
I pad fold them and place in which ever cover I happen to want to use. They are seriously the trimmest cloth diaper insert or prefold I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe that I hadn’t tried these sooner.
I am saying this because I mean it…please, if you have the money and the inclination you should buy at least one of these to try. I really think you will be happy if you do.
Sophia is now two **sniff sniff**. I’ve been using the size medium/large fleece and jersey prefolds which are approx. 16” x 18.5”. They are made of 4 layers of 60% hemp/ 40% organic cotton. I prefer the jersey a little more because they stayed buttery soft after repeated washing. But the fleece is still is an amazing choice if you like that instead (and still pretty soft). Fleece blends are good at wicking moisture away. This makes them very good for little ones that are sensitive to moisture.
Geffen Baby also has cloth wipes, flats, and sized prefolds. One interesting product they offer that isn’t available anywhere else is their Absorber Universal Inserts. They are made with the same amazing super absorbing material and organic fleece to wick away moisture. There are sizes to fit in any cloth diaper making them an excellent choice if you are switching out something like microfiber inserts for natural fibers.
Another cool thing: Geffen Baby is partnering with WAHM’s and boutiques that are interested in including Geffen Absorbers within the diapers they sell. Since Geffen Baby has complete control of every part of the manufacturing process they are able to do special requests about size, shape, style and even fabric. So if you are a WAHM or any cloth diaper manufacturer, partnering with Geffen Baby might be an amazing opportunity to offer a first class diaper with well made, trim and super absorbing inserts!

Since it’s been a while I wanted to know if this is still your favorite trim without losing absorbency prefold!
My son already had a huge bum so I’m really trying to find something super trim but still absorbent!
It’s hard to tell the timeline as I read through posts so I want to make sure I try whatever your current favorite is and not buy too many different brands to try ?
Jennifer Reinhardt says
YES! Still the best. I used the purple trim all the way until the girls were 30+ lbs. You didn’t mention how big your son is exactly, however I can tell you obviously the XL Navy trim holds a bit more. But it’s also slightly longer and wider. That works if you are using a cover with lots of rise and good coverage. Bit if baby is still young or on the shorter side it would likely have to be folded again somewhere which would add to bulk. If you give me a little more info I can be more specific. Thanks for reaching out Emily!
New to cloth diapering here and can these inserts only be used in Pocket Diapers? It looks like all-in-2 diapers have their own inserts that button in, so these inserts might slip out?
Jennifer Reinhardt says
If the diaper cover is on properly, the should not move or slip out.
Sarah Hayes says
geffen is amazing! I wish Id found them sooner
Used our very first cloth diaper yesterday and loved it! So excited to know about this brand and all other cloth diapers!
Megan Schultz says
Love these!! Would love to add some to my stash!!
Mandi R says
I’m commenting! I would love to add these inserts to my cloth diaper arsenal!
Love love love
Am really hoping to try these soon! I have a super heavy wetter at night
I’m using my Christmas money on my first Geffen inserts!!
So if I an understanding correctly, Geffen is a brand not a material? And the specific ones you like are the hemp/cotton blend? I ask because I kept thinking Geffen was a new material! Lol, so I want to make sure I’ve got it straight. I am always looking for something extra absorbant for overnight. Right now I use a hemp/cotton mix, but it’s Thirsties brand. What is the difference? ?
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Thirsties is another great brand. But Geffen baby has the Highest hemp content sold on the market. It is also a hemp that is always soft. Check this link out you can see how the absorbency stacks up against others.
I can’t wait to try!
Jennifer Rayna says
If these are better than Thirsties hemp inserts I HAVE to try them!! Thirsties hemp is the only hemp I have so far and it’s my absolute favorite!! Can’t wait to try Geffen baby with tax refunds this year! Lll
Holly b says
Thanks for the review. I really want to try these.
Tanya Wright says
I’ve read this one so many times lol. I love geffen baby stuff because of you ?
Because of your review I started swapping my microfibre inserts for geffen and I absolutely love them. They hold so much and are super trim and they stay nice and soft. Never stiff and crispy like others. I have tried quick absorbers, super absorbers, prefolds, and the flats and they are all awesome! Thank you for the recommendation.
Amanda Maupin says
Geffen baby is unmatched in quality and absorbency!
La Vie Turner says
These are absolutely amazing. Geffen knows absorbency and it’s highly recommended because of its absorbency.
Do they run any kind of shipping promotions? Shipping is over 11 bucks!
Hopefully someone answered this for you already, but you can find them on other sites with free shipping.
I buy my geffen from Abby’s lane. :)
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Hi Ashlie! Sorry, I never saw your comment. They do have specials. You can also buy them from other stores as Mary mentioned. I personally get mine from My Sweet Pickles for the rewards points.
I think fit and absorbancy is important with out that id have tons of leaks!
A dry feeling is most important to me b/c my baby fusses when he feels wet. Thanks for the chance to win!
Amber Rumph says
Jennifer S. says
A combination of all 3! If I had to choose, I’d pick absorbancy though, followed by trimness.
Trying out cloth with my second and could really use something that will make me a believer. Trimness, absorbancy and something that doesn’t fall apart sounds great!
Angela Watson says
Absorbency, closely followed by trimness.
Great read, I was just wondering how these held up and performed. I have a heavy wetter.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Rosabelle, I meant every word. These are so amazing I would seriously replace all of my inserts with these if I had the money. If you can buy some! You will not regret it!
April E says
Trimness and cute factors are huge in my book, but if absorbency is the main point of diapers :)
Definitely absorbency. I don’t want to get pee on me an hour after a diaper change.
Absorbency is the most important for us!
All of those things are nice of course, but what is a diaper without absorbency?
Anastasia T says
I think fit and absorbency are most important. They also cannot fall apart after the first wash. SO annoying.
mellisa patterson says
The most important quality is absorbency, lol isnt that what a diapers for?!?! I think quality follows in the same category. Besides that I like the fitness factor, trim isnt too big of a deal except if I want a certain pair of jeans on my son, bit for the most part all his clothing is cd friendly :)
Andrea Merrill says
Absorbancy is the most important thing to me. I hate having to change sheets every single day.
Carissa Joslyn says
Absorbency, because well, isn’t that what they’re for?! but i also like nice trim diapers. If they’re to bulky, I feel like they’re un comfy for my baby.
Mackenzie Quintal says
I just had my 3rd child, and am doing cloth diapering. I would love to try other prefolds that are trimmer than what I am currently using. We are in newborn sizes cut soon I will need to purchase larger prefolds.
Katy M says
Definitely absorbency, because if it doesn’t work then I’m not going to use it!
Sara Sherrell says
I like a good fit without leaks.
Absorbency and quality are highest on the importance but trimness is fantastic and a close second.
Mesha C. says
For me the most important part of a cloth diaper is the Absorbency factor.
Absolutely LOVE Geffen Baby and am going to be stocking up on their prefolds when my next little is born in February. Love the trimness and that they absorb a ton and still stay soft in the wash.
Absorption is most important! I went to the website to order a couple. Do they only sell singles? I’m used to spending 1-3 dollars on a prefold. 7 dollars is pricey!
Jennifer Reinhardt says
No, these are sold individually. However, the quality, absorption and trimness is much greater than you would find in a 1-3 dollar prefold. These won’t need to be doubled as often and will last through multiple children with no issues. I know that the price might be higher than you are used to spending or can afford, however they are a very good investment. You might try to see if you can find any preloved ones to buy.
Anna Kloch says
Absorbency is my main concern, but trimness for day is also nice!
Absorbency and quality!
Absorbency! My first baby is due any day now and everyone is trying to talk me out of cloth diapers because of absorbency. Ha, I’ll show them!
Absorbency! Such a huge thing for any diaper.
Amanda Adamek says
Absorbency is by far the most important factor for me. DD1 was a super heavy wetter and I struggled keeping her dry. Hoping I have it semi figured out for LO2 coming in Nov. :)
Sarah Stewart says
absorbancy and great quality is a must! my little guy is still small so a slim trim fit would be a plus!
Breanne Murray says
I think the most important for me is quality materials (so we can use them through multiple babies!) and absorbency (because leaks suck) they have to be comfy and hold up well after many uses :)
Sara Heltzinger says
Quality and ease of use
Good fit is what matters most to me. I don’t mind changing more often for absorbency but a leak bothers me a lot. Quality is next. We cloth diaper to save money so poor quality diapers would be pointless. I’m a huge fan of double gussets, and even though I didn’t think it would matter before I got started, trimness is important too. Cuteness matters too but it’s hard to find a cloth diaper that I don’t think is at least a little cute.
Definitely absorbency and trimness, in that order. I have some great inserts that are super absorbent, but if they’re too fluffy, I don’t get the right fit and end up with leaks. These sound right up my alley!
Deirdre Pfeffer says
I really want to try these jersey cotton’s out!!! I love everything jersey cotton! Sheets, t-shirts, PJ’s, I bet they would be awesome OTB!!!
Genevieve White says
Absorbency because without that you’ve just got a mess!!
Absorbency is a big factor for me. Trimness a close second that is why i would be thrilled to be able to try this kind of insert :)
Anne Adams says
Absorbency and ease of use
Absorbancy is definitely the biggest factor for me. If it isn’t absorbent there is no reason for the baby to be in a diaper!
Katrina Roloson says
Absorbency is key! But they need to be trim too.
Heather Sanford says
Absorbancy. Then how trim they are.
I’d say, trimness and non-leakiness are my top two for a good diaper.
Angelique Shaw says
Most important for me is being able to absorb a decent amount and not leak.
Kayla s. says
Quality is most important to me, I feel like good absorbancy and lifespan are included in this. But trimness and cuteness are a HUGE plus.
When baby is tiny, fit takes precedence. But all my older kiddos needed a good amount of absorbency and we had some wiggle room with fit. Cuteness is always a factor though!
Viv Sluys says
Absorbency and fit are the most important to me. I would love to be able to have trimness be of high importance but then I wouldn’t have any diapers I liked…
Viv Sluys says
Oh, the why. Absorbency because,well, that’s the point of a diaper… and fit because who wants to wear something that doesn’t fit right? and if I don’t want to wear something that doesn’t fit, why should my baby have to
Stephanie Lowe says
Absorbancy most definitely!
Lauren L says
Absorbency, quality, and easy laundering. I’ve heard great things about Geffen prefolds and would love to try them!
Colleen Maurina says
I look for absorbency and good gussets to prevent leakage.
Absorbency and longevity and how easy they can wash up. I don’t have time to be fiddling with the wash routine
Angela Selby says
I like versatility in a diaper, and that is why I like prefolds and flats. I can fold them different ways, use them with a waterproof cover, a wool cover, or no cover at all! I’d like to try a geffen prefold. Thanks for the giveaway!
Maggie M. says
Always looking for trim inserts that actually absorb! Would love to try them!
Trisha W. says
Absorbency and good fit are two keys to a good diaper.
Stephanie Wheatley says
The most important features to me are an all natural material with good absorbency!
Martha G says
Absorbency is the biggest factor to me; I need a diaper that holds up to my “waterfall” babies!
Absorbency is my biggest concern because I have a toddler who is an extremely heavy wetter.
Bekah Kuczenski says
My most important features for diapers are fit and absorbency.
Tiffany F. says
I’m looking forward to CDing our little who is due in October. I’m be looking for really absorbent, cost-effective solutions. The Geffen prefolds sound exciting!
Kaitlin L. says
Absorbency is a really good thing to have with cloth diapers. Especially during the night time. Quality is good too…they need to last for a couple years.
Morgan E. says
I think all those are very important to me. I love trim diapers but if they don’t absorb well, then they are pointless! Thankfully Geffen baby products are all three! They are amazing!!! The prefolds have saved my nights!!!
Jodi Armstrong says
first is absorbency, fit, lifespan because i want a quality product that will last & not leak. secondary is nice to have a trim fit :)
For me it is quality because i am in it to save money so I want something that will last but they are all important.
Most important feature is absornency and fit.
sharon b says
Absorbency, feel, and quality are the most important aspects to me. I also like to know the materials used since I prefer natural fiber inserts vs microfiber.
Meg isard says
Fit absorbency are most important followed by cuteness!
Patricia B says
The most important thing about a diaper to me is absorbency. I have a super heavy wetter, so I have to have super absorbent diapers.
Christina H says
Quality and absorbency are the most important to me.
Judith Martinez says
fit is the most important thing for me because I have a very skinny toddler.
Tara Clark says
I think absorbency and comfort for baby are the most important qualities in a cloth diaper. We don’t want itchy uncomfortable babies so soft and natural materials IMO are best. Absorbency, I think comes second because obviously we don’t want leaky dipes! :)
Suzanne D says
Trimness and absorbency are a tie! Both my kids have been heavy wetters and it’s hard to get good absorbency without making the diaper too bulky and creating a leaky mess!!
I’ve heard great things about this brand. Would love to win and try it out!
Absorbency is most important because I have an extremely heavy wetter!
Jamie Brewer says
I would probably have to go with absorbency and quality…!
Cassie P says
I am just getting started with cloth diapering, so for me right now cost and simplicity are important!
Tiffany G. says
Absorbency is crucial because who wants to be constantly changing diapers, but we use prefolds and covers so trimness would definitely be a perk.
Love how trim it is and have so absorbent at the same time..
I believe quality in cloth diapers is most important. All cloth diapers strive to be absorbant and trimness isn’t at the top of my list. Having a good stash of quality diapers that will last is vital to me.
Katie B says
I’m always looking for the perfect diaper! Easy is my first priority, followed by trim and super absorbent . Would love to try something new!
Absorbency is huge! I stack multiple layers and still get leaks because he’s a heavy wetter. I’ve heard great things about Geffen Baby!!!
Tina Browder says
Definitely need some!
Erin B. says
Absorbency and quality are very important (and kind of go hand in hand). If you don’t have a good quality diaper and one that is absorbent, what’s the point? You will just end up frustrated, with a lot of messes, and having wasted money.
Lauren Simms says
Absorbancy, lifespan, ease of use/laundering.
Mary C. says
I think absorbency is most important with trimness being a close second. I have a heavy wetter. He can load even the most absorbent disposable in a single naptime. It doesn’t work to have so much padding to catch the pee that the diaper cover doesn’t cover it all.
Jutta P. says
We have serious Geffen Baby love in this house too! Trim, absorbent, USA made, super soft, easy to use. Need I go on? They just meet our needs. I have to add that we are also duck lovers. I have a super cute video that I need to find and post on your page…
Jennifer Reinhardt says
<3 Awesome! I hope you find it. Sophia probably would probably love to watch it with me Jutta!
easy of use and easy of washing are very important to me.
Kailanitsa economides says
I really want to try the super absorbent plus for overnight!
Jessica O says
Absorbancy is super important and so is price!
Jenn Smith says
Absorbency is definitely most important to me for my heavy wetter!
I am looking forward to trying these out!
Becka Roy says
Absorbancey first quality second.
Monica K says
I’d love to try the Geffen inserts. Absorbency is my number one and trim follows right behind.
Absorbency and trimness! Love geffenbaby!
I would say absorbency is really important. If the diaper can’t hold everything in then what’s the point?
For me a prefolds needs to be trim and absorbent.
Brittany P says
Brittany P says
Absorbancy: I have a little one who wets a lot, particularly first thing in the morning.
Will have to check them out when we need more inserts!
Brenda P says
Quality and absorbency are most important to me! I want something that’s going to feel good against baby’s skin (quality) and I don’t want leaks(both)!
Will have to try for my almost 2 year old heavy wetter!
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Alicia, These are perfect for heavy wetters! I really can’t believe how amazing geffen is!
Nola Hodgins says
Cuteness and absorbency. I don’t care how cute it is if it leaks!
Sarah Buttry says
I love trying new things. I would love to have one! I might just have to order.
Would love to try these for naps and nighttime! Absorbency is key to have a happy baby and mama!
Sam Prigge says
Just started cloth diapering my 6 week old and would love to try these prefolds!!
I am always on the lookout for really trim things for my son. I think the really bulky things look uncomfortable and make it hard for him to do things like tummy time (he is 2 months old). Most of the things I’m finding have been too expensive to buy enough to stuff in all of his pocket diapers though.
I’m new to cd. Would love to try!
Absorbency and quality
Jennifer Symonds says
I think most important is how trim they are and their absorbency qualities.
Anna D says
Absorbancy is most important.
Katrina H says
Absorbancy. My lo likes to hold it and pee all at once causing leaks.
Allison F. says
We are somewhat new to cloth diapering. I am now on the search for these????
I wish i would have known about these when my little guy was still in cloth. Maybe for the next one!!
Jessica Giesecke says
Absorbency and quality are first, and thinness is a bonus.
I am expecting in Nov and am looking to cloth diaper! I now have just 3 diaper covers, plan to try them out to see which brand we like best and then buy more. However we don’t know what prefolds to get for them! It would be awesome to try some for free :)
I really want to try these. We are on a strict budget, so buying one just to try can’t happen right now. Fingers crossed that you’ll pick me!!
megan ramsey says
As long as the diaper absorbs I don’t care what brand it is or what it looks like. In the end, a diaper’s main goal is to catch bodily fluids (it doesn’t hurt, though,if it’s cute).
They look so trim.
These look AMAZING! I can’t believe how trim they are. My DD is only 2 months old and is already a heavy wetter. These would be perfect. :)
I’d love trimmness and excellent absorbency!!
Heather Hetrick says
I would love to try! Absorbency and trimness.
Absorbency and quality
Jillian @ Reshape Your Life says
As a soon-to-be first time mom (who has yet to actually cloth diaper, I’m due in November) I think absorbency is going to be most important to me, because if they are leaking it will be hard to convince my husband cloth is worth it! ;)
Amy Wright says
I can’t choose between trimness and quality. I can always add more absorbency or switch inserts.
I am looking forward to cloth diapering after 10 years away! LO is due soon and my biggest need is quality. Quality includes very good absorbancy, but I never imagined it can be trim! Thank you for your blogging because after so many years away and fabulous new products I could have been overwhelmed. – jenn
Katie r says
Maybe this is the insert I’ve been looking for to help me with my leaky Charlie bananas!
Beki Lozano says
Absorbency is the main one i looks for. If it leaks its just not for me and i also look for the fit i like them to fit my son nice and snug and comfy looking if it looks to tight i feel like hes uncomfortable and will take it off.
Absorbency and quality! For me that’s what the diapers about! Absorbency! But I want a quality product that lasts!
Heather Johnson says
No leaks! A diaper is pretty much worthless if it leaks.
Melody G. says
I haven’t even heard if this brand before this week. :) now my interest is peaked. As for the diapers, I like a diaper that is good quality and trim the most! Great giveaway!
Jay Dee says
Absorbancy is most important to me, because I don’t want it to leak or leave baby’s skin too wet.
Patty P says
Would LOVE to find something that holds A LOT and is still trim! Definitely have to try these!
`Risa D. says
I only need a cloth diaper to work(not leak) and fit under clothes lol.
Always looking for great cloth Diapers to tell people about. Thanks for the opportunity :-)
Leah D says
New to cloth diapering so I’m always looking for what works best. I love using prefolds but my son is sensitive to moisture and will get a rash… So… Absorbency and stay-dry are the most important things to me.
I’m still new to this, and am always trying new things to find what works best for me!
To cloth diaper my son I need a very absorbent liner/insert but that also allows for a trim diaper. Thankfully hemp and organic cotton have worked to stop the leaks of my heavy and fast wetter.
Chantal J says
Absorbancy is my #1. If a diaper leaks after one pee, it’s a goner!
Melissa Wagner says
Absorbency is the most important to me.
Melissa Wagner says
Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.
Rhonda C. says
Absorbancy. As long as my diaper doesn’t leak I am happy!
Amber Hensley says
Quality and absorbency is very important and I feel they go hand in hand! I would hate to have leaks all the time and constantly changing my baby’s clothes.
Amber Hensley says
They sound amazing!! I have to give them a try!
Absorbency is key for me. My son is a heavy wetter and overnights can be rough. Also want quality that will last for more than one baby!
Jessica Berger says
I’m just getting started with my cloth diapering adventure. I’m very excited to try more eco friendly products like hemp and bamboo. My understanding is these are also most absorbent
Michelle O. says
Now that my baby is getting older, I’ve found my CD needs changing. No one tells you this in the beginning while you’re investing all this money! Now that I’ve tried many different types of diapers, I’ve found that I love the all natural materials for absorbency. I also feel buying and supporting USA made diapers is a must for our family. I’m excited to find these Geffen diapers and wipes and try them! SOON!! Thanks!
Andrea Geuther says
I think that quality is the most important factor because if a cloth diaper isn’t made to last then it defeats the two main purposes of coth diapering; economy and ecology!
I think for my children and myself, absorbancy and quality are the most important in a cloth diaper. I had diapers that were tri m but didn’t hold much or fell apart too easily. I would rather they hold absorbancy well and made with good quality materials, then they work better and last longer for more uses.
Caroline Guthrie says
These would be awesome, we only have a couple of non microfiber inserts, it would be great to use these for comfort for my little guy.
I have been looking for a trimmer more absorbent option for my heavy wetter. Trimmer because buying pants is hard when I can’t get them ti fit over his diaper. More absorbent because who likes the change outfits every time they change a diaper? I also need it to be affordable.
Julie cullinan says
Having a very active boy, I’d love to find a trimmer insert for his pocket diapers. Also added absorbency would be great but he’s not really a heavy wetter.
Kari Barone says
Quality and absorbency. I want a cloth diaper that doesn’t fall apart in a matter of months. I also need a diaper that will not leak on a heavy wetting toddler prior to being fully potty trained.
Taylor Schell says
Absorbency and trimness are very important to me! Can’t wait to try these out
Absorbency, although trimness is super important too if I can find it :)
Wow! That’s really trim!
Julie C says
I need absorbency since I have a heavy wetter.
Absorbency has got to win over the rest, though it’s close with quality and trimness!! But I don’t want leaks, that’s for sure!
Absorbency is most important because that’s the point to wearing a diaper…. To absorb. But a choose second is trimness so that clothes can fit over the diaper.
Mom Easton says
I am loving cloth. Most important to me is absorbency. Our babies travel alot to visits and such so they have to stay dry in the car. So we are still working out the best liners. We use glowbug diapers and love them.
Renee D says
Need absorbency without too much bulkiness. Still haven’t been able to achieve what I am looking for, but I am still looking. Maybe this one is it!!
so many things are important to me with cloth diapering. I guess cost is the most important, but absorbancy is also a very high priority and the type of material. I no longer use microfibre and completely recommend natural materials like cotton, hemp and bamboo to moms who cloth diaper.
Quality and how easy they are to wash and dry are most important to me.
Katie S says
Absorbency for sure.
Margaret Hildreth says
absorbency is key! my boy is a crazy heavy wetter
Trim us nice. But def quality
Absorbency rules over all (leaks stink) which is why I always have a fluffy bummed child. :) BUT I’ve long wished for an absorbent and trim diaper. Very interested in this product
Carrie S. says
Quality. It has got to last long enough to actually provide money savings.
Absorbency and quality, how long is this going to last? My prefolds are going strong on their 3rd child from month 3 till potty training. But I love the idea of trimness, what a concept!
ashley schreiner says
Can’t wait to try these!
Jennifer smithson says
Absorbency and quality. I want them to last for a few children :)
Absorbancy and trimness. My baby girl is still fairly small and so I prefer not having bulky diapers on her, but they need to work well!
Absorbency matters most but trimmed would be nice
Absorbancy and quality! I want to try these Geffens!
Absorbency is super important! No one wants leaks!!
trimness is a plus but it is very important that it cleans well and dries in the dryer well I don’t want to put a diaper on my baby that has a moldy or other smell to it so trim with natural fibers
I am planning on doing mostly prefolds with wool but I have some pocket diapers because my mom might change a few and she has a problem with wool I am very interested in this product
Jessica Smith says
Absorbancy is important to me cause I don’t want to have to deal with leaks all the time!
I want my baby’s diapers to absorb and fit comfortably :)
Trimness and quality. I don’t want to size up clothing that fit everywhere else except tush…And I wasn’t something that holds up through repetitive washes.
Anna Beth says
I was just trying to figure out what inserts I wanted to try for the new baby!
Vicki H says
I really like trim diapers but absorbancy is really important
I agree with her.^^^^^
Leela R. says
An insert has to have it all! I use primarily Geffen Baby super absorber inserts and love them for their absorbency, trimness, ability to stay clean, quality, and cost!
Melissa c. says
I’m a total sucker for trim, easy diapers. I really want to try geffen absorbers!
Ashurity Jones says
I was wanting to try some of the geffen baby fitteds and now I want the prefolds too. Even hubby commented on my fluff mail today that he loved the designs.
Kristy Black says
Annie Olcese says
I have to go with comfort… If baby is not comfy in them no one is happy!
sarah f. says
Absorbency is most important to me. Quality and softness are close behind.
I love trim diapers, but the most important thing to me now is to be using natural fibers. Since switching from microfleece, I have had virtually no stink issues with my toddler’s or baby’s diapers. I love what I just read about Geffen’s prefolds!
Absorbency, absorbency and did I mention absorbency as being a vital key to CD.
Quality and absorbency
Tasha Marchand says
fit and absorbency for my heavy wetter!!
All of the above, but right now my concern is trimness. My baby girl is almost two so we’re getting close to potty training, I hope!
The most important feature is absorbancy because, cute isn’t cute if it leaks!
Valerie S says
Absorbency & trimness.
Absorbency because there is nothing worse than a leaky diaper!
Laura D says
I love how economical they are and how easy it is to use them. I never thought it was something I would ever do and I’m glad I decided to do it.
I love a trim but absorbent diaper!
Would love something absorbent for night!
Fit and absorbancy!
Emily Hammann says
Quality and absorbency is important for sure to us! We are new to cloth diapering and want to know that we will get quality product for what we pay.
Absorbency and trim. About to give birth to baby #2 and trying new companies this go around. Looking forward to getting some. What seems to be the best newborn cover nowadays? I’m going to try the lil joeys….hoping they work well

Denise, lil joeys are amazing nb diapers. I also really liked blueberry simplex. Good luck!
Absorbency and durability are tied for me. It can absorb a flood but if it only last a couple washing its not worth it. Not to mention if it can survive the apocalypse but couldn’t absorb a raindrop that doesn’t help much either. These prefolds look nice, btw.
I have 2 boys im trying to get into cloth. Absorbancy is the most important to us.
Stormy Reyes says
Absorbancy! My baby girl is a heavy wetter. We double up microfiber with bamboo or padfolded flats for day use and with hemp for night time and car rides.
Absorbency and comfort
Kate record says
Ease of use, so daddy can use too!
Jaime S says
Absorbency! Nothing else matters if the diaper is leaky!
I like cute trim diapers that are user friendly. I would love to try one of these prefolds
Amberly Watson says
Absorbency. You can’t have a good quality diaper if it isn’t absorbent so absorbency takes the cake!!
Quality and trimness with the caveat that something with terrible absorbency really isn’t very quality.
Hannah Fiedler says
Durability & absorbency are important!
I think absorbency is pretty important, but I’m going to go with comfort first. If it’s ridiculously bulky or if the prefold bunches up in the pocket, no thanks.
And yikes – are these $8 per ONE M/L prefold?? Whoa.
Absorbency. My son a heavy wetter and it’s fine at home, would love more reliable absorbency when out. I find car seat is when he will leak most from compression leaks
Amanda Schatz says
Quality! The other qualities of a diaper don’t even matter if I’m not going to get my money’s worth and have it last! We love Geffen Baby prefolds… So soft and we love that they have some stretch to them!
Quality. I started with kawaiis. They were good enough to start, but I’ve learned so much by now that I can’t love them anymore. A really well made diaper is a thing of beauty. It’s fun and functional.
It was absorbency, but I’d love a trimmer fit. Jeans are such a tough fit with cloth diapers.
Amanda Nelson says
Absorbency is a must. If it leaks straight through then I might as well be using disposables!
For me, absorbency and quality. I’m new to cloth diapering so I figure ease of use will come eventually lol
Steph M says
Absorbency all the way! If the diapers are leaking, it means more laundry for me. I also covet trim diapers. ;) All the trimmest prefolds are $$$!
Absorbency! It’s frustrating to have to change cloth 3x more often than disposables. I can deal with 2x more often – which most of my diapers can handle! :-)
Absorbency is most important to me….if it’s not absorbent trimness isn’t really all that relevant!
Tracy Gordon says
I would say absorbency is my first priority because ain’t nobody got time for being peed on! ;)
Gina Hilton says
Great absorbency is super important to me. I have two heavy wetters.
carrie tomlinson says
i think having heavy wetters absorbency is the most important feature to us in a cloth diaper.
Adia Lancaster says
Absorbency & quality
Jennifer Bouchard says
I think quality is most important although cuteness is right up there lol
Quality and ease of use are important to me.
I think washability and fit are most important. For me it’s all about if they wash clean and don’t get too stinky and if they fit well with no leaks.
Have you tried their absorbers or just the prefolds?
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Mya, I’ve only tried the prefolds. But I can honestly say that I’ve never heard anyone say anything buy how amazing ALL of their products are. That leads me to believe that the absorbers are also a good buy.
carrie tomlinson says
i have been interested in these since the girls at padded tush stats mentioned how absorbent they are.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
You should buy at least one to try them Carrie! They are so worth it!
Melissa E says
Absorbency is more important to me, as I’ve already been supplied with nice roomy clothes for fluffy bums! =)
Jessica M J says
Absorbancy is a huge factor, I won’t sacrifice quality either, trimmer is just a bonus.
Absorbancy and quality. Leaks are no fun, and you don’t want diapers that wear out too quickly. Most people plan on saving money by using dipes for multiple children.
Laura S. says
Absorbency, ease of cleaning and long-term durability!
That is a hard one! I suppose absorbency, but if it weren’t a quality product that holds up well, that would be an issue.
Melanie S says
Absorbency and natural fibers. Microfiber and I are not friends.
Jessie Coggins says
Quality for me is #1. A good quality product will be safe against my sons skin. Trim is #2. I want something that holds a metric ton of whatever comes but looks great in the process. Geffen has always and will continue to be that for me!
A good diaper, in my opinion, will have all three qualities. Quality, absorbency, and trimness. Of course, let’s not forget how cute some diapers are ;)
Heather Ann says
Trine was and quality… I’m not in a position to stay at home with my kiddos and so they have to go to daycare or visit family when husband and I work. If they were with me I’d let them just romp around in diapers and underwear and enjoy being natural while they can. Since I don’t have that opportunity, they have to be clothed and I like for diapers to fit well into their leg folds to prevent leakage and irritation. They should fit well under the cute clothes we’ve all spent countless hours oohing and aahing over. This fit and profile is important. Also quality as I want something that is consistent from one to another so I know what to expect. It must hold up over time too. Absorbency is great in the moment but I don’t want it too absorbent as I personally believe that my firstborn was ready for potty training before 2 because he didn’t like being soiled. If something was too absorbent, it’d be too comfortable for him for longer periods of time and we’d not be completed with potty training.
Absorbancy and the fit are very important!! After all isn’t that what a diaper is for???!!
Would love to try!
Absorbency… but with versatility. I have some prefolds that are super-de-duper absorbent, but with such a tight weave that I can’t snappi or pin them for use under wool at night. They’re only good for trifolding. Big drawback for me.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Kristina, They also have flats that can be used with snappies or boingos to go under a wool cover.
I would say ease of use and quality. I love our cotton prefolds because we never seem to have the stink or repelling issues that some of my friends have with synthetic materials. They are not as fancy but seem like much less fuss!
Mary P says
Trimness and absorbancy
Alison M says
Absorbency & quality, I try to purchase products made in North America :)
Rehannon Miller says
Absorbency and a quality diaper are a must!!!
Lee-Anna S says
I have to go with absorbency because we are out of the house a lot, and I have her on my back a lot, and having to watch the clock to make sure I don’t go past that magic 2 hour mark can be a pain at times. I like to have a little leeway, just in case I can’t change dd right at that moment.
Samantha T says
Quality was a major thing for us. I know people have excellent luck with china cheapies, but I didn’t want to gamble on me getting one of the bad batches. I paid a little more for our stash but I have piece of mind that they’ll last through multiple kids.
Kathie S ith says
Absorbency! I have heavy wetters and leaks suck.
Easy to use, durable, absorbency and made in USA. I have done lots of research and Geffen products recieve high reviews. I will be getting some to try.
Absorbency first above all else!!!
Caitlin M says
Ease of use for sure! I’ve always loved my prefolds and covers
Britney L says
Absorbency and washability!
Katie Bettis- Robinskn says
Absorbancy because I don’t like the leaks and especially overnight!
I love diapers that are trim, absorbent, durable and easy to care for. It sounds like these prefolds are all of these things! I’d sure love to try some!!
Danni L says
Absorbency is most important for my 2yo but trimness is my priority for my newborn. :) We’re a dual stash house here. Thanks for hosting this!
Absorbency and ease of use! I want something quick and simple and that works :)
I have some Geffen Baby quick absorbers, and they are wonderful! Besides the tags fraying, they have also worn beautifully, just like your prefolds! Really hard to choose, but now that my youngest is a toddler, I’d say trimness and absorbency are currently my top two factors (though quality is up there, too). I need something that will hold a lot of wetness because when my little guy goes, it’s now a flood. We can go from dry to soaking shorts in 10 minutes if I don’t use the right insert, and it drives me crazy some days! Also, if I can’t fit a diaper under clothes, I just won’t use it, no matter how great the quality may be. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!
Jennifer Reinhardt says
I’m glad to hear that you like them as well Amelia! Good luck!
We are all a out absorbancy!!! The cuteness factors in also.
Bre Blaye says
I love GEFFEN BABY inserts as well- I noticed I can use one insert in one of my WAHM pockets and we can go a pretty long time!!!
Amanda Goddard says
I have been researching a debating on what kind of inserts to switch to. I have a couple hemp babies for night diapers, but even those arent holding up with the MF insert. I need something super absorbent. Might be worth buying one to see how it goes.
Valerie Butcher-Enriquez says
I agree with absorbancy and durability. Trimness does play a factor but absorbancy first.
Kim O says
I think absorbency is the most important factor for me.
I’m trying to buy more and more products made in the US
Marian F. says
Trimness and absorbency are important to me. I hate bulky diapers they look so uncomfortable and leaks are definitely a no no!
Susan S says
I think absorbancy is the most important feature for a cloth diaper. I love Geffen Baby prefolds. I recently started stuffing my pockets with prefolds!
Theresa Lyon says
Now I’m intrigued. Trim and absorbant
Tess Hanner says
Absorbency and quality of the fit is most important to me in a cloth diaper. I love it when I can go an entire day without having to do an outfit change due to leaks! I’m always so impressed when I feel how wet the insert is and how dry my baby’s bum stays with cloth diapers.
This sounds awesome!! I am having another baby so I get to do some diaper shopping anyway!
Jennifer H. says
Absorbency and containment are both tied for #1 on my list. A diaper has to work as a diaper! But, now that I’m in my fourth year of cloth diapering, I have to say that durability is a very close second.
Jennifer Davis says
I love Geffenbaby wipes, and I have been thinking about trying their fitteds, looks like I will!
Jennifer Davis says
And I almost forgot I want quality everything else falls in to place if you have exceptional quality
Elena U. says
Absorbency is part of quality in my books, and I love to find good quality cloth diapers!
I honestly prefer prefolds. They are simple, relatively easy to clean, economical, and versatile. I love my fitteds, and aios, too, but prefolds always are my first choice. Trim diapers are very nice, too!
Absorbancy and trimness. My daily diapers really are fst and covers because they are so trim, but I do have to change quite often (I really don’t mind for daytime). I need more absorbancy for night though, while still keeping trim as my little guy is a tummy sleeper and a bulky diaper doesn’t work so well with letting him get comfy. I have 1 Geffen baby size M/L fleece, but it’s still big for my 16lb 7 month old. I can’t wait til it fits him though as it is super soft and, the few times we did use it, was very absorbent.
Absorbency! Cloth diaper users like to say there are no leaks, but if my son pees out of a diaper after 45 minutes, that’s no good!
Jessica Hughes says
While I like a trim diaper, absorbency is the most important for me. What’s the point of using a diaper if it doesn’t last long?
absorbency is my most important feature of a diaper.
Sarah Hayes says
trimness is very important to me. I love geffen bc they are trim, absorbent and excellent quality
Nicole C. says
I just tried out the Geffen Super Absorbers Plus and I am honestly in love with their inserts. I have a heavy wetter and I use just ONE insert last night for bedtime (usually a fitted and cover is what I use) and he didn’t leak at all. I’m getting rid of all my microfiber inserts so I stuffed this one into my BumGenius 4.0.and it was so trim and absorbent. I prepped them and they did shrink a little but they looked really big to begin with. Overall I love them! And I would LOVE to replace all my inserts with their products. I plan to within the next couple of months. Oh and they don’t take forever to dry.
Jennifer Reinhardt says
Nicole!!! I totally agree. Geffen’s stuff is so amazing. I can’t believe I went all this time without using them!
I love geffen baby hemp wipes! I can’t wait to try their prefolds!
Anna DeBenedictis says
Absorbency and durability!
