Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner, on July 16. For those like me who can’t resist a deal, I thought it might be a good idea to do some homework and find out what Amazon’s top selling cloth diapers are so that come Prime Day there won’t be any reason to hesitate snapping up those Prime deals on diapers!
The list below is the top 25 bestselling items in Amazon’s cloth diaper category. Of course this list is generated by an algorythm and includes a little bit of everything Amazon puts under that category; in it you’ll find diaper pins, wet bags, sprayers, diaper covers, and more. It also changes daily as some products outsell others on a given day, but over the past few days I’ve been building this post the top 25 have generally stayed the same.
As you’ll see browsing this list, many of the best selling cloth diapers on Amazon are swim diapers. This makes sense because even those who use disposable diapers will sometimes use cloth swim diapers.
Regardless, I hope you’ll find it an interesting if not useful list to browse when considering what to add to your stash this year.
Amazon’s Top 10 Bestselling Cloth Diapers
1. i play. Baby & Toddler Snap Reusable Absorbent Swim Diaper
The top selling diaper in Amazon’s top 25 bestselling cloth diaper list is the iplay baby and toddler swim diaper. iplayy is a popular swim and sun-wear company (they are the ones who make the hats with the large flap at the back).
This particular model of iplay swim diaper comes in six basic colors, is available in sizes 6 months all the way to 4T, and has whopping 1,839 reviews, 79 per cent of which are 4 or 5 stars. Taking all that into consideration, it’s no secret why this is at the top of the list.
Of the less-than-great reviews, the main complaint is that the sizing is too small, especially around the legs. While this diaper has snaps for easy putting on and taking off, it’s not adjustable, so be sure to take that into account consider sizing up if purchasing one of these.
2. Gerber Birdseye 3-Ply Prefold Cloth Diapers, White, 10 Count
3. FINIS Swim Diaper
If you’re not into pink, don’t let the picture print fool you, this Amazon listing has nine cute prints/colors to choose from that are cute for both boys and girls. With so many cute prints, all in sizes that fit from 3 months to
4. i play. Baby Boys’ Snap Reusable Absorbent Swimsuit Diaper
5. Gerber Birdseye Flatfold Cloth Diapers, White, 10 Count
On first glance, especially in tiny thumbnail size, these may look just like the third bestselling diaper, listed above, the Gerber Birdseye 3-Ply Prefold Cloth Diapers, but they are not. These are flat diapers, which are different from prefolds, though they are used inside a cover in the same exact way.
6. Nageuret Reusable Swim Diaper
7. Wegreeco Baby & Toddler Snap One Size Reusable Baby Swim Diaper (Diving, Ocean, Turtle, Large, 3 PACK)
8. i play. Ruffle Snap Reusable Absorbent Swimsuit Diaper
9. ALVABABY Swim Diapers Large Size 2pcs
10. i play. Baby & Toddler Reusable Absorbent Swim Diaper (Pack of 2)
11. SmarterFresh Cloth Diaper Sprayer
The SmarterFresh Diaper Sprayer is a very good diaper sprayers in the mid-to-low price range, thought it has some faults.
The metal construction of the sprayer itself, and the stellar customer support through Amazon (SmarterFresh’s main storefront) are all big pluses, however the long hose, clanky toilet mount, and the need to turn the main valve off after every use (inconveniently located at the base of your toilet), are irritating.

12. babygoal Baby Reusable Swim Diaper, Washable and Adjustable for Babies 0-2 Years
13. City Threads Girls’ & Boys’ Cotton Basic Diaper Covers Made in USA
14 ALVABABY Swim Diapers 2pcs
15. OsoCozy Diaper Pins
These particular diaper pins are listed as “Amazon’s Choice” for diaper pins, which may have something to do with their bestselling status. Regardless, these are well rated in the customer reviews, with 77 per cent of reviewers (212 reviews) giving them five stars.
Some of the negative feedback includes a warning that the green color is somehow lesser quality than the yellow, that they may melt in an electric dryer, that putting it into a bar of soap before using it is best to get a good poke through the fabric, and that they are not as strong or well-closing as the diaper pins of yesteryear.
16. i play…. Baby Girls’ Ruffle Snap Reusable Absorbent Swimsuit Diaper
17. Wet Dry Bag (Giraffe and Owls)
18. ALVABABY One Size Diapers, Package of 6 with 12 Inserts
Alvababy pocket diapers are now a staple in most cloth diaper stashes, though they are not often considered the favorite for those with other North American brands in their laundry pile. Alvababy’s main selling factor is their low price. Compared to other pocket diapers, Alva’s are inexpensive, and their quality good enough to make them a useful addition to any cloth diaper lot.
With that said, we do recommend adding additional inserts to Alvababy diapers when diapering at night or when diapering a heavy-wetter. A thirsty insert, like hemp, when paired with the inserts you receive in this package, would be reliable in most situations.
Note of caution: When ordering, make sure the seller is listed as “Alvababy.” Some buyers have complained that they received knockoffs. Read my post about tips to save money when buying cloth diapers on Amazon for more information about what to look for when shopping on Amazon.
19. SunBusters Boy’s Reusable Swim Diapers, UPF 50+ Sun Protection
20. ALVABABY Swim Diapers, Set of Two
21. ALVABABY Travel Wet and Dry Cloth Diaper Wet Bags, Set of Two
22. ALVABABY Swim Diapers, Set of Two
23. Large Nageuret Reusable Swim Diaper
This swim diaper is made for toddlers and up, fitting sizes 4-7 (approx. 20-55 lbs) using adjustable snaps. It is made by Beau and Belle Littles, a small family based company from Loveland, CO.
The reviews are overwhelmingly positive, with most buyers happy to find a swim diaper in a larger, and adjustable, size. In fact, the only review under 4 stars only complained that it was too adjustable.
24. GroVia All Natural Magic Stick Baby Diaper Balm for Baby Diapering, 2 oz Size
The GroVia Magic stick is the only diaper cream product (though of course it isn’t a cream but a stick) that made it to the top 25 sellers in cloth diapers. GroVia is a trusted cloth diaper brand that produces many cloth diaper related products, so it’s more than a given that this stick is made to be cloth diaper friendly.
The listed ingredients are: Grape Seed Oil, Beeswax, Lavender Oil, Organic Jojoba Seed Oil, Rose Hip Fruit Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Organic Calendula Flowers, Organic Olive Oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Roman Chamomile Flower Oil, German Chamomile Flower Oil, Vitamin E.
The customer reviews for the GroVia stick are glowing, with some actually speaking about how often it sells out because of it’s popularity. Most reviewers love that they don’t need to touch ointment, but more than that many many reviewers spoke to it’s effectiveness, which arguably is the most important thing.
25. Buttons Flannel Baby Wipes, 15 Pack
I was so glad to see some cloth wipes make the top 25 bestseller list here. These wipes are Amazon’s Choice for cloth wipes, but again, they are on the bestseller list, so that’s likely why. These wipes, made by Burrons Diapers, a reliable brand, are made from 100% unbleached cotton flannel. They measure 7.5 x 7.5″ and come in a 15 pack.
For the price, quantity and quality these seem like a no-brainer to add to your Prime Day order. The reviews are very positive (64 per cent left five-star reviews, and even the lesser reviews are generally positive).
