Buttons Cloth Diapers were our very first fluffy delivery, and we have been using their AI2 cloth diapering system since my little guy was just over 5 weeks old. They are who I recently turned to for a hemp insert to try for both daytime and nighttime use. Buttons Cloth Diapers are a one size, two in one cloth diapering system using water proof covers with snap in inserts. The covers are made with 2 layers of wipeable PUL, and have a snap closure. I recently received their Hemp/Cotton Daytime Inserts and Nighttime Hemp/Cotton Doublers to try out on our 1 year old little guy. If you are interested in more information about their Covers and the Microfiber Inserts, be sure to take a look at my Buttons Cloth Diaper review from last year.
The Buttons Cloth Diapers Daytime Hemp/Cotton Inserts and Nighttime Hemp/Cotton Doublers are both made with a premium natural fabric that is made with 55% hemp and 45% cotton, and have snaps to attach right on to the cover as part of the AI2 cloth diaper system. The daytime insert has 4 layers of the hemp/cotton blend and a super soft top layer of fleece to help wick the moisture away from baby's skin. The nighttime doubler has a total of 5 layers of the hemp/cotton blend, and is not meant be used next to baby's skin. It has the snaps on both sides, so it can snap to the diaper cover and to the daytime insert too.
Both the Daytime Hemp/Cotton Insert and Nighttime Hemp/Cotton Doubler are available in two sizes. Small should fit baby from 9-20 pounds and has light orange stitching for daytime and dark orange on the nighttime doubler. While the large should fit from 20-35 pounds with the daytime insert featuring light blue stitching and dark blue stitching on the nighttime doubler.
After receiving the Buttons hemp/cotton insert and doubler, I first began the prepping (washing). Buttons recommends a hot wash and a few hot rinses. After doing that, I found that they need another couple washes and rinses before dribbling water on top of them appeared to soak in quickly enough for wear. (Also I did dry them in between each wash too.)
Once the they were fully prepped, I couldn't wait to get them on the bum for a test. One of the first things I noticed is that even with 4 layers of hemp/cotton and the top microfleece layer, the daytime insert is still incredibly thin. After keeping it on my son for just over two hours, I was impressed that it absorbed great without any compression leaks even with our little mover running, climbing, and plopping down to play multiple times.

Overall, the Buttons Cloth Diapers Daytime & Nighttime Hemp/Cotton inserts are definitely a win in my little battle against compression leaks. My favorite thing about Buttons Cloth Diapers is that they are so budget friendly with covers priced between $11- $12.50, and they offer such adorable solid colors and prints to choose from too. (I love the Cover in Sunshine that is pictured) The daytime hemp/cotton inserts are only $7.75 and the nighttime hemp/ cotton doublers are sold in two packs for just $19.50!!
