Disposable Diaper Inserts for the Flip Diaper System
The Flip Diaper System offers a Disposable Diaper Insert (inserts come 18 to a package) in addition to its two other insert options, the Flip Stay Dry Diaper Insert and Flip Organic Cotton Diaper Insert.
While some may be upset this is even an option, others readily recognize the need for a disposable diaper insert for when caregivers are unwilling or unable to accept cloth diapers, when traveling seriously limits laundry capabilities, and for a myriad of other reasons.
Flip Makes "Disposable" as Eco-Friendly as Possible.
I think we would all agree that reusable is always a better option than disposable, which is why the Flip Diaper System offers, and even encourages, the use of their stay dry or organic cotton inserts. However, the Flip Disposable Diaper Inserts have been carefully constructed to make the lightest footprint possible.
Dye free and fragrance free, the Flip Disposable Diaper Insert is the only disposable diaper insert that has achieved the Oeko-Tex certification*. The Oeko-Tex Certification requires a product to meet a "globally uniform standard for the objective assessment of harmful substances." During the certification all stages of the manufacturing process are tested - from the raw materials to the end product.
How are the Flip Disposable Inserts Constructed?
The trim Flip Disposable Diaper Inserts are made from 5 g of non-woven bamboo viscose; the filler consists of 14-15 g of wood pulp and 3 g of SAP (Super Absorbent Polymers or Sodium Polyacrylate). The layers are sealed with 1g of starch-based glue.
Bamboo was chosen because it is a renewable resource, naturally antibacterial, and can biodegrade in soil (if exposed to the right elements) without any harm or pollution to the environment. Considered the fastest growing "grass", bamboo can grow up to a yard or more a day and does not require replanting because of its extensive root network.
We realize some parents take issue with exposing their children to SAP (Super Absorbent Polymers, or Sodium Polyacrylate) - in which case, one of the two cloth alternatives for the Flip Diapers will better suit your needs.
We will even go so far as to say we RECOMMEND cloth over disposable diaper inserts options. Still, we know there are temporary, extenuating circumstances where a more eco-friendly disposable option is appreciated, which is why we have made the Flip Disposable Diaper Inserts available for you.
PLEASE NOTE: Because Flip Disposable Diaper Inserts are trimmer than the typical cloth diaper inserts, you might need to adjust the diaper cover in the Flip One-Size Diaper System to the smaller setting to keep the insert snuggly in place.
