Best Bottom Diapers: New Decade. New Diaper.  

(Need more inserts? Go here.)

After years of experience, Nicki (the owner of Planet Wise wet bags) created a new diaper taking the pros of all the different diapering systems and eliminated the cons. "This resulted in the Best cloth diaper system available - trimmest fitting and highly absorbent!" To help reduce early confusion and the overwhelming feeling when researching cloth diapers, the Best Bottom diaper system has simplified cloth diapering while making one of the most economical systems. The Best Bottom one size diapering system is not a pocket diaper, not an all in one, not a fitted diaper and not a prefold is the best of all types! 

How the System Works
  1. Adjust front snaps to achieve the size needed. 
  2. Snap insert into diaper. 
  3. Put diaper on baby and go! 
  4. When baby needs a diaper change, snap out soiled insert and snap clean one in. 
  5. Put diaper on baby and go, just like that!
The Best Bottom shell is wipeable and can be used multiple times before washing. You may want to air dry between uses, but it is not necessary. It is recommend to get as many shells as your baby poos in a 2-day time period (for newborns count how many explosions they have!). Poo does stay on the insert (rather than the shell) most of the time. 

Shells fit from birth to 35+ lb 
The makers of Best Bottom Diapers don't believe in a "one size" insert. Newborns and toddlers are not the same size, so in order for a one size insert to absorb enough for a toddler it will be comparatively huge on a newborn. Best Bottom recommends approximately 24 inserts per size.

So to make it simple you will need approximately 6-8 shells and 18-24 inserts per size (more if you start with a young baby, less if you start with an older baby who potties less often). Shells include special leg gussets to help keep everything in, adjustable rise with four settings, and overlapping closure. This is a very trim fitting diaper so please be extra careful that none of the insert is sticking out of the shell. Also, after the diaper is on, pull the leg gussets out around baby's legs. This will guard against leaks and help avoid any red marks.


The highest quality of materials available have been selected with as much of the raw materials made in the USA as we could find. The entire Shell is made with USA-made materials! ALL of our products are proudly handcrafted in the USA at local factories helping to support the local economy and reduce our environmental impact. We use durable snaps and hook & loop, double layer of waterproof PUL creating a perfect no-leak sturdy shell with a wipe-able inside lasting for many washes.

Washing Instructions - Oh so easy!

We recommend washing every 2-3 days. We have found that the Best Bottom system washes beautifully as it takes up less space in your washing machine allowing more room for agitation getting your diapers super clean.

  1. Remove solids
  2. Reuse the shell until soiled or wash day. Separate shell from insert before washing. Fasten laundry tabs (if applicable).
  3. Do a cold rinse or cold quick wash (no detergent).
  4. Warm or hot (not sanitary) full wash with 3/4 to full amount of additive-free detergent. Use the most amount of water possible.
    *Tip! Throw a soaking wet towel into your HE washing machine to "trick" it into using more water.
  5. Extra rinse.
  6. Inserts can be tumble dried. Shells should be line dried or tumble dried on low heat.
    *No fabric softeners, dryer sheets or additives such as vinegar, baking soda, washing soda, borax, oxyclean, etc. should be used.
    **Rash creams can only be used with a barrier between baby and the diaper.
    ***We know that additive-free detergents work and are least likely to cause any problems with your diapers. 
Customer Reviews
Rating Very cute!
The Giraffe pattern was given as a gift when I had my son. It is super cute! It is also nice that the inserts snap into place inside the shell.
