These lovely Bells Bumz Bamboo flats are smooth one side and delicately fluffy with the bamboo loop on the other these flats have a little bit of stretch to them and a lovely rainbow trim.
Material composition: 80% bamboo and 20% Polyester
A super slim but also absorbent option this 60cm flat fits perfectly from birth to potty and can be made smaller by folding the corners in to the centre of the nappy to form a smaller (50cm) super thirsty square suitable for use with newborns. See here for a video on how to do this.
How to use
These can be fitted to baby with a nappy fastener such as a pin or nippa, cover with a waterproof wrap and make sure all the nappy is tucked inside the wrap to prevent leaks. Alternatively, padfold into a wrap or stuffed into a pocket.
Folds we like to use include: Kite, Jo, and Bat fold across all ages- see here for a how to video
When baby outgrows Jo and/or Bat fold we also like the Gaynor fold which gives nice wide wings to go round squishy tummies.
For extra absorbency fold with a slim flat such as muslin or birdseye flat (simply lay flat on top of one another and fold together), or boost by adding a hemp insert or booster. The Bells Bumz hemp booster with coffee fleece liner were designed to work in tandem with this lovely flat. These might not work for all babies overnight but may with some when boosted.
Top with a fleece or disposable liner to keep baby dry and to simplify the disposal of solids (post weaning).
Remember, you can reuse your wraps 3-4 times by wiping them out with a wet cloth if they do not come in to contact with poo.
How to wash and dry
Be gentle with me
Pre-wash once before use on a short gentle wash (30/40 degrees) to fluff up and remove manufacturing residue and to create absorbency. Dry naturally.
Once in use, wash at 40-60 degrees but no hotter (40 is best if used on one baby, baby is 3 months+ and well). Do not use fabric conditioner. Washing regularly at 60 may reduce lifespan.
Dry naturally if possible. Low tumble only. Do not place on direct heat like radiators as it can melt delicate bamboo fibres.
