Geffen Baby provided this product for review, but that did not impact the opinions reflected in this post. To read more about how we ensure honesty in our review process, please read HERE.
All right all right, I was totally wrong. When I opened my package of Geffen Baby Quick Absorbers Plus inserts, I thought, “There’s no WAY this will work with my heavy wetters.” I-was-so-incredibly-wrong. Never has a product surprised me as much as this one. It is so incredibly trim, soft, and absorbent as all heck.
I am thrilled to tell you about this insert and show how I’d fill out a Padded Tush Stats Inserts survey based on how it worked on my two little ones.
These are made out of five layers of 60% hemp and 40% organic cotton jersey (which is a higher hemp content than anything on the market).
Look at how this compares up against a standard microfiber insert. This is a side view and it really doesn’t do it justice:
The hemp makes the product more durable, absorbent, anti-mildew, and anti-microbial.
Most of the hemp products I own are rough and scratchy, which drives my son nuts. He actually tolerates this one against his skin.
The inserts are 6”x17”
I found that they just barely fit in the covers…there were about 1/2 an inch too long on covers, but that was fine because I would either fold it over or let it be a bit bunched. I show HERE in my gdiapers post how sometimes a longer insert helps give the diaper a shape.
Not folded, but bunched:
Folded down (really, when folded down, it was still more trim than most inserts I use):
Here is how I would fill out a Padded Tush Stats Inserts Survey based on how it worked on my two children. I have a 2 year old son and a 3 1/2 year old daughter. They are both 27 pounds. They have used these for several months and in that time have been normal to slightly heavy wetters. My son is normal-sized, my daughter is skinny.
Absorbency at Day vs. Night
Like I said, these are incredibly absorbent. They were bullet proof by day, even at naptime. At nights I would stack two and it just wasn’t enough. There are more absorbent inserts that Geffen Baby carries that I would be tempted to try that are more absorbent. I got them to work pretty well at night by laying a Flip Organic insert underneath.
These are made in the USA.
Note from company:
“Layered with other absorbers (or fitteds, prefolds etc.) they would be excellent in a night time diaper for any baby, or alone for a lighter wetter.”
$11.52 for a 3-pack
I consider this a fantastic price ($3.84) for what you are getting.
