Size one - suitable for newborns though to 18 months One size fits most- A super slim nappy, could easily fit a newborn without being bulky and fits my 2.5 year old.
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.
For extra absorbency add a booster inside the flat, or outside between the flat and the wrap to avoid compromising the fit of the fold.
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
Pre-wash once before use on a short gentle wash (30/40 degrees) to remove manufacturing residue. Dry naturally.
Once in use, wash at 40-60 degrees. Do not use fabric conditioner.
Dry naturally if possible. Can be placed on radiators to speed drying.
Low tumble only but they are very fast drying anyway and we found dried in less than two hours on a warm radiator
