These cheery brightly coloured terries are 100% cotton, a perfect and sustainable natural fibre for use as a cloth nappy. A faster absorber than bamboo these nappies work well to catch those flooding wees and, whilst thicker, are slightly less expensive than the 100% bamboo and are less delicate.
60cm-Can be used 'birth to potty' but might be a little bulky for the first few months
We were recently asked if the colours on these ran, in our experience they dont and we wash the yellow alongside the dark purple and they are all just as vibrant in colour as the day we got them (quite some time ago!)
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 some how to videos and guidance on folds.
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 slimmer 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. Can be used with great success overnight.
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
Strong and study workhorse, I can take a hot wash
Pre-wash once before use on a short gentle wash (30/40 degrees) to fluff up and remove manufacturing residue. Dry naturally.
Once in use, wash at 40-60 degrees. A hardier material than bamboo, these nappies can even take the odd 90 wash with no problems. Do not use fabric conditioner.
Dry naturally if possible. Low tumble only. Can be placed on radiators to speed drying but may make them a little stiff in the long run, to fluff back up rub them against each other (Honestly, it works!) or fluff them up in the tumble trier on low
