Hemp Babies Little Weeds Inserts

            Hemp Babies image and logo

Little Weeds are made with hemp fleece composed of 55% Hemp, 45% Certified Organic Cotton, serged with natural thread and seamed for easy folding.  These high quality inserts were specifically designed to fit in a small or medium pocket diaper.

Two layers of hemp ensure that they wash clean and dry quickly. Designed specifically for an infant, the small insert folds in half for less bulk and four layers of absorbency.

These inserts measure approximately 12'' x 12'' unwashed. Hemp will shrink significantly after washing


55% hemp fleece, 45% certified organic cotton.


After these hemp inserts have been primed (see below), wash as you would your regular diapers.

How to prepare for first use
We recommend washing and drying these inserts four times before using for the first time (that's wash - dry - wash - dry - wash - dry - wash - dry).  Hemp has natural oils in it that need to be removed before it becomes absorbent.  It will take eight or more washings before it reaches its maximum absorbency.  

When washing your hemp the first few times do NOT wash it with your fleece products (like bumGenius 5.0 or Rumparooz). The oils from the hemp will coat the fleece, making it repel.  After your hemp has been fully primed, you may wash it with all of your diapering products.

Our experience is that hemp is 50% more absorbent than cotton, making it a great insert for heavy wetters or for night time.  Because it is so absorbent, it can be hard to wash clean and dry thoroughly.  That's no problem with these inserts though, since they are only two layers thick.  (Unlike other hemp inserts, which can be seven layers thick and don't unfold for thorough washing and quick drying.)  You fold the insert in half, which gives four thirsty layers, and then stuff. This hemp insert is softer and dries quicker than other hemp inserts we've tried.

    About Cotton Babies

    Cotton Babies began with $100 worth of product in a tiny green milkcrate stored on a shelf in our kitchen. It grew from there to a bookshelf, then a closet, then a bedroom, then a basement and finally, the business exploded into commercial space.

    Today, Cotton Babies is a privately held market leader in the juvenile product industry and a diverse retailer, offering everything a family needs to take care of their baby. Our primary focus is cloth diapers, but we also offer a wealth of other products designed to make parenting easy!

    Where are we?
    Cotton Babies is located in St. Louis, Missouri. Our online and administrative operations run out of a large campus located in Fenton, Missouri, a community that lies on the southern border of St. Louis County.  Additionally, we have a retail store serving the St. Louis area located in Town & Country, Missouri, and a manufacturing facility located in Denver, Colorado.    

    Our owner, Jennifer Labit, cares deeply about growth of the cloth diapering industry. She was the founding chair of the Real Diaper Industry Association, a 501(c)6 trade association created for cloth diaper retailers, manufacturers, diaper services, media and other parties with an interest in the cloth diaper industry. Under the leadership of a diverse board, the RDIA is healthy and growing rapidly as they labor to expand consumer awareness of cloth diapers and support industry needs in an exploding cloth diaper market.

    Social Responsibility
    Today, Jenn is focused on raising the standard of excellence in the baby industry through creative designs and unique marketing approaches. Her goals are continued growth of the cloth diaper category in an effort to reduce waste and raise the standard of living in areas her company has influence. Cotton Babies reaches out to local families through targeted outreaches designed to get cloth diapers in the hands of the less fortunate. Cotton Babies also provides cloth diapers to thousands of missionaries through the Diaper Grant program.

    Corporate Philosophies
    In an industry filled with abundant diversity, Cotton Babies endeavors to build bridges with people, not walls over differences. We operate our retail stores under the premise that "every mom leaves our store feeling like a good mom". When designing new products, our goal is always to support parents at every point on the spectrum and offer a variety of customizable options to fit their unique needs.

    Cotton Babies wants to see cloth diapers in every home across America. Our owners created the bumGenius brand, the Flip Hybrid Diapering System, and Econobum. Each brand is designed to reach out to a different unique market segment. Today, Cotton Babies' brands are sold through thousands of independent juvenile stores worldwide and major retailers.

    Cotton Babies wants to make it easy for more families to use cloth diapers. With bumGenius, Flip and Econobum, we've increased accessibility to cloth diapers by recognizing families at different places in life. We believe that every parent and baby is unique. These distinctions demand a variety of options.
