I received a product in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are my own and honest. My experiences may differ from yours.
Geffen Baby Absorbers are universal inserts (meaning you can use them in any diaper) made out of a hemp/cotton blend. They come in many different sizes, from small enough for a newborn to big enough for a toddler. They’re made out of either a knit or a fleece. The ones I received are the Super Absorbers Plus. They’re made out of five layers of hemp/cotton fleece and are about 6″ wide x 17″ long. These babies are trim! Just look at the pictures down below (and forgive any staining you might see, I grabbed that insert right out of the wash). I was not squeezing that insert, that’s how thin that sucker is! Five layers of hemp fleece! Alone in a cover these are just as trim as disposable diapers and they’re absorbent enough for day time. For night, I like to use either two of these or one with a bamboo insert. Either way, it makes for a trim nighttime diaper and lasts up to 12 hours for a toddler. As you can see in the picture below, they fit great in a large Bummis Super Whisper Wrap. And I can fold them down to fit in my one month old’s covers (shown folded into a newborn Rumparooz cover). Can we say “Awesome!”?! They don’t last my little guy all night all alone, but with a doubler, even folded, these are still a really trim option.
I must admit, mine haven’t stayed as soft as they were after the first time I washed them. I think it’s because I have hard well water and stuff gets built up pretty quick, so it’s no fault of the inserts. They’re still soft enough that I feel fine having it up against my babies’ bottoms. These Geffen Baby absorbers are the ones that I use most often for night or when we’re fixing to go someplace..
I really can’t see a downside to these absorbers. The only thing that I can think of that I don’t really like about them is how wide they are. But if they weren’t that wide, there wouldn’t be that much fabric and they wouldn’t be as absorbent. These being so wide isn’t a deal breaker since they’re pretty soft. Even for Little Man, they don’t seem like they’re that bulky between his legs.
Overall, these are worth it. They’re a good price and have great absorbency and versatility. And have I mentioned that they’re made in the USA? That’s pretty darn great.
