Cloth Diapers From Target – Can You Get A Good Stash?

This post contains affiliate links which means I may receive a commission at no extra cost to you if you make a purchase after clicking my link.

Target is possibly one of the most popular stores in America, especially among moms! It seems like you can get almost anything at Target, and if not in store, you can at least find most things on their website.

Did you know that Target sells cloth diapers? Back when I was pregnant with my oldest child, they really only sold Gerber prefolds, bumGenius (their selection for these wasn’t great), and gDiapers. But now? They have expanded their cloth diaper selection a ton!

Cloth diapers are still an online only item at Target. I really hope that changes soon as I can only imagine how much more mainstream cloth diapers could become if stores like Target would display them on their shelves for people to discover and experience. Hopefully someday!

Why Get Cloth Diapers at Target?

Target is a great place to get cloth diapers for the following reasons:

  • Diapers are priced the same as what you would find elsewhere
  • Target often runs baby deals that give you a free gift card with a purchase of a certain amount–buying some cloth diapers for your stash can easily get you there, and the gift card amounts often are high enough that it would be like getting a free diaper.
  • You can save an additional 5% and get free shipping with a RedCard (if you’re not into credit cards, don’t worry–I’m not either. They have an option for a card that you can use as a debit card to your checking and receive all the same benefits!) Shipping is also free over $35 if you do not have a RedCard.

We do a lot of our shopping at Target, and it’s so nice to know that I save even a little bit more just by using my RedCard.

Expecting? Get A Target Baby Registry

Target’s baby section is phenomenal, and it is getting better all the time. It’s one of the few stores you can get a convenient baby registry at, especially now that Babies ‘R Us has closed all stores. Target is a great place to have a registry because it’s a store most of your friends and family will feel comfortable shopping at, and their website rivals Amazons.

If you are pregnant and plan to cloth diaper, you will want to get a registry set up at Target. What better way to get some awesome quality diapers than as a gift? Click the link below to sign up and start building a baby registry:

Now let’s look at the brands of cloth diapers that Target sells. If you have been a follower of Rocking the Cloth for any period of time, you may have seen my post called The Best Pocket Cloth Diapers. Many of the following brands coincidentally made that list!

bumGenius Diapers

bumgenius-cloth-diapers-from-targetBumGenius is still one of the main diaper brands Target sells. This brand is a popular high-quality diaper brand, so I’m ecstatic I can get them at Target. Their selection is much greater now than when I first looked for cloth diapers at Target five years ago.

The bumGenius Freetimes are one of the styles you can get, along with the bumGenius 5.0 pocket diaper. If you are into hybrid/all-in-two diapers, they also sell Flips diaper shells & stay-dry inserts, plus organic cotton inserts.

Thirsties Diapers

thirsties-cloth-diapers-from-targetThirsties is another brand of diaper I really love, so I’m so excited Target carries them! They have a number of different styles and prints, too. They have the newborn all-in-one and the one-size all-in-one. If you are interested in a hybrid/all-in-two diaper, they have the Thirsties Duo Wrap Covers and various types and sizes of inserts. They also sell adorable gift packs of Thirsties diapers that would be perfect to put on your registry. I know it’s a gift I’d love to give to a fellow cloth diapering mama!

Charlie Banana Diapers

charlie-banana-cloth-diapers-from-targetTarget sells a number of Charlie Banana products, including the following: single one-size diapers, one-size diaper sets, swim diapers, diaper liners, and even the Charlie Banana diaper sprayer.

Charlie Banana is really growing as a company to create more and more Earth-friendly products. There are also reusable feminine pads you can purchase that would be great for after you give birth.

Charlie Banana diapers have a super soft lining, and fit comfortably and flexibly. They are much more flexible than other brands of diapers, making them great to fit a wide range of baby body types.

Gerber Prefolds

gerber-prefolds-cloth-diapers-from-targetTarget has a number of different size packages of Gerber prefolds in both regular and organic cotton.

This 10-pack of Gerber Baby Birdseye Diapers would come in extremely handy whether or not you want to use these prefolds for diapering. Prefolds make great burp cloths and all-purpose cloths around the home. They’re much more absorbent than many of the other burp cloths or towels advertised, which is why I love having some prefolds at home.

There are also organic prefold options if you prefer.

Pair these with the Flips diaper covers or Thirsties Duo Wraps to make them waterproof as a diaper option.

Target – A Player in the Cloth Diaper Business

Target is a great store and website for all baby products, and cloth diapers are no exception. I’ve always had great experience with Target’s customer service. While Target is a large corporation, they are one of the most ethical large corporations out there, which makes me feel good about giving them business.

Would you put cloth diapers on your baby registry? Let me know in the comments!

    It is refreshing to see that someone is still using cloth diapers in this day and age, given that most people are in so much of a rush and use the quick and easy way out.

    Even though it has been a while (long time!) since I was changing our babies nappies, my wife has reminded me that she found it a great way to interact with them from an early age.

    My wife was interested to read your review of the different nappies on sale now, and is pleased that Target sells them.

    I am glad you mentioned that they are an online item only at the moment, saved me a trip to Target (with my wife) today.

      Glad you and your wife found it helpful, Steve! Yes, online only right now…much to my dismay! I hope they will carry them in store, soon.

  2. Target is one of my favorite stores, you can find really everything you need there. Sometimes the brands it offers are exclusive only for Target. Love your top picks on baby cloth diapers, they all  look so cute. I would pick up BumGenius Diapers, love their simple and colorful design. The fact that you can find many other options of them, including even organic cotton diapers, makes it my number one choice too.

      Glad you found it helpful, Leo! Target is also one of my favorite stores. I love that I can readily get cloth diapers there!

    Wow cloth diapers have really come a long way! It’s really good to see that they are becoming more mainstream again. It’s so much better for the environment, not to mention healthier for the baby! I love shopping in Target’s baby section and I’m so glad they are providing good options for cloth diapers. 

    1. Holly Lee says:

      I agree, they really have come so far! I love Target’s baby section, too.

    Hi Holly,

    I’m so sorry I missed out on these wonderful cloth diaper options, they simply weren’t available 30 plus years ago when I was diapering children! Believe me there was nothing cute about a square of cotton muslin and a vinyl snap on cover that I’m pretty sure was made from a shower curtain liner reject.

    The information you have provided here about the latest in cloth diapering options is amazing. Are they all available at other retailers, or exclusive to Target?

    I have three grandchildren under the age of one and will make sure their caregivers are aware of these eco-friendly options as opposed to disposables. 

    Thanks for the information and education on these earth friendly diapers…so good to know!

      Hi Kyle Ann! So glad you found this helpful. There are many retails you can purchase cloth diapers from, including Amazon, Kellyscloset.com, Nickisdiapers.com, clothdiaper.comGrovia… You may also be able to find some mom and pop shops in your area depending on where you live!

    Hi, that’s a great idea. When I first saw your post title, I thought you are talking about those old fashion cotton diapers towels. I loved those and we use them for many things.

    Now these Gerber Baby’s Organic Cotton diapers though are great. Real absorbing modern diapers made of organic cotton, this is what I like.

    From the price aspect I too think it’s worth it, about $1.6 a piece and I can use them many times. By the way, how often do you recommend reusing such cotton diapers?

    I’ll definitely get some packs for our grand daughter when the time comes.

    The Target website looks nice too, easy to navigate and due to using Amazon nothing really different. Thanks for the reminder 🙂

    1. Holly Lee says:

      Hi Stefan! I’m glad you found this post helpful. 🙂 I think you can reuse them as many times as you want until they start falling apart, but they’re pretty durable. You could use the same diapers through multiple kids!
