Geffen Baby Quick Absorbers Plus Inserts Review

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.

Geffen Baby 7

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.

Look at how ridiculously trim this is:

Geffen Baby 2a

Materials

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).

These are hands down the softest insert that we currently own (that and our Smartsnugs and Flip organic), but oh so trim. 

Geffen Baby 6

Look at how this compares up against a standard microfiber insert. This is a side view and it really doesn’t do it justice:

Geffen Baby 3

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.

Dimensions

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):

Geffen Baby 5

 

Survey Response

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.”

Price

$11.52 for a 3-pack

I consider this a fantastic price ($3.84) for what you are getting.

Tara Porter

Tara Porter began using cloth diapers in 2011 when she felt that using disposable diapers was costing too much money. The problem was, a lot of the highly recommended diapers weren’t working for her baby. What she finally discovered was that her baby was skinny and a heavy wetter, and that diapers worked differently for those baby types. Because of her professional work with survey design and statistics, she designed Padded Tush Stats as a way to determine how different cloth diapers worked on different babies.

Tara moved on to other career endeavors in 2014 but can still be found online blogging about health and fitness at Fit Baby Steps.

    That is insanely trim. I have to try it.

    On the geffen baby site, they have these, plus ‘super absorber plus’ and other crazy absorbent names. Do you know the difference? What’s the top absorber and they mention a ranking system… but I can seem to figure out what the ranking mean. Any know?

    • http://www.makingitworkblog.com/ Carolyn Russell

      Their site hasn’t been up and running all THAT long, and I think they might still have some kinks to work out in terms of explaining their products well (I’ve gotten confused a couple times over different things!) I THINK the inserts get more absorbent as you move down the page, but I’m not positive. With that being said, they are quick to respond on their Facebook page, though, so I recommend asking them directly on their wall!

    Wow. That is so trim it looks like a thin training pant. =)

  • Valerie S

    Thanks for the review, I would not have thought they would be that absorbent either!

  • courtney mcdonald

    such a good price & so trim i have to try these!

  • Melissa

    Wow! When you say they are bulletproof for day, how many hours? Would you say their absorbency is comparable to a BGE? Grovia?

    • http://www.makingitworkblog.com/ Carolyn Russell

      We consider daytime use to be 2-3 hours, and naps to be 3-4 hours. I haven’t used these inserts so I can’t personally attest to what they’d compare to, but you can certainly look up the reviews for both those diapers and see what Tara scored them as! :)

  • Amanda J

    These look awesome! From your reviews, it seems like hemp is the way to go for extra inserts. I just bought some SmartSnugs (NatureSnugs) secondhand, which are bamboo. If these Geffen Baby’s are as soft as those, I will definitely have to try them!

    I’ve been wanting to try these, I wish I had pulled the trigger when they had free shipping last month!

    I like the way you brief the details on absorbency. The review says it all. I would like to share more details on other Absorbents. Please check out the below link.http://www.supplylinedirect.com/absorbents/

    This have quickly become my favorite inserts. I’ve been replacing all of my microfiber slowly.

    Wow, I’m really impressed. I need to add these to my wish list. I’m afraid my microfiber inserts will smell like ammonia too quickly, plus I prefer natural fibers. Love the trim factor – very useful review, thanks!

    This is a great review. I’ve been wanting to try these but have been scared off by the low star “reviews” on the Geffen Baby site. The problem is that there is no text associated with those star reviews so it’s hard to figure out what people don’t like about them. I love my Baby Kicks hemp inserts, but the price of the Geffen Baby one’s is very attractive. I might have to pull the trigger on these to round out my non-microfiber insert stash.
