Contours have a unique place in the cloth diapering
world. They are a cross between a fitted
cloth diaper and a prefold. These diapers have a contour shape that fits on your baby like a fitted diaper,
but they have no fasteners to hold the contour diaper on your baby. To use these diapers you need to fasten the
contour on your baby with diaper pins or a Snappi. You can also lay them
in a snug fitting cloth diaper wrap before fastening the wrap on your baby. If you use a Snappi or diaper pins you can
use a pull-on style diaper cover or a wrap style diaper cover.
Imse Vimse offers two different contour cloth diapers. The Imse Vimse Organic Terry Contour Diapers and
the Imse Vimse Organic One-Size Flannelette Contour Diapers are made from 100%
organic cotton and are available in newborn and one-size options. Both versions feature elastic at the legs to
help contain messes. You can purchase
individual diapers or a pack of 4.
The Sugar Peas Snap-In Cloth Diaper is also a contour style diaper. They are specifically designed to fit into a
Sugar Peas Wool Cover, but can be used with other diaper covers. The elasticized legs and back will help keep
messes from escaping. These diapers are
made from hemp and organic cotton and come in three sizes.
One of the most popular contours is the Kissaluvs Hybrid One
Size Contour Diaper. Elastic at the legs help keep messes inside the diaper. The
soft knit cotton fleece is available unbleached or in several different
colors. Save money by purchasing them in
bulk. Thanks Mama offers Kissaluvs
Hybrid One Size Contour Diapers in 12 packs and 18 packs. Get a free diaper cover with the purchase of
