Cloth nappy boosters: What are they and when should I use them?

Our extra insert sets and boosters are made of the same eco-friendly fibres as our standard inserts and fit seamlessly with your EcoNaps cloth nappies. 

They are great for overnight nappy-use and can stop leaky nappies in their tracks. If your bubs is a heavy wetter, boosters will be an essential cloth nappy accessory for you. 

If you nappies are leaking, and you’ve checked the fit is perfect, you may need to add some boosters to your stash for extra protection. Learn more about minimising cloth nappy leaks here. 

At EcoNaps, we offer four different booster kits that will help keep bubs dry and comfortable in any situation.

This booster kit includes 4x of the standard convertible sets that come with your modern cloth nappies. You get 8x individual inserts to snap-in as you need. It’s the perfect kit if you already have some of our nappies, but want to add some additional inserts to your stash. Because our cloth nappy inserts are super thirsty, they can take a little longer to dry, but this kit will make sure you always have backup inserts ready to go—even on rainy days.

“So glad I brought them. I only started doing cloth nappies overnight when I received the boosters in the mail. I love them so much. I use them folded at the front of my twin boys’ nappies, and we have no more leaking problems.” - Hannah R.

“My daughter had to sleep in disposables at night because she could wet through a cloth nappy with both inserts in 4-5 hours but the night boosters have been a lifesaver! We go the whole night without wetting through or needing a nappy change! Highly recommend to anyone considering adding the final piece to their cloth nappy collection.”  - Helen J
“We were having some leaking issues at night with my 2-month-old son wetting through his nappy. I bought some trifolds to see if they helped and they are so thirsty! No more night leaks, no more pyjama, cocoon and sheet changes in the middle of the night these have really saved the day. Just saving up to buy more so I have enough for all of my night nappies."- Mikayla W.
