Inserts, Liners and Doublers

The distinction between inserts, liners and doublers can be mind boggling! Here's a general guide to help you out:

Inserts (also called soakers) make up the main absorbent portion of a diaper. They usually come with the diaper in a system, but are also sold separately. 

Liners lie between baby's bum and the diaper to create a barrier. There are both reusable liners, usually made of fleece or disposable liners. They are used to make poo cleanup easier, or to protect the diaper from creams. 

Doublers (also called boosters) add absorbency to a diaper, in addition to the regular inserts. They are used for heavy wetters, naps or overnights.
