These silky soft terries are 50% Bamboo and 50% Cotton meaning they are great not only for heavy wetting babies but also for older flooding babies who release a lot of wee at once. Less bulky and more absorbent than cotton terries but a little less delicate than 100% bamboo they are a perfect middle ground for absorbency, speed of absorption and drying time.
60cm-Can be used 'birth to potty' but might be a little bulky for the first few months.
70cm- For bigger babies and toddlers who might require a night nappy
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.
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 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
Be gentle with me
Pre-wash once before use on a short gentle wash (30/40 degrees) to remove manufacturing residue and to create absorbency.
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 degrees over a long period of time (more than the first three months of baby’s life) may reduce the products lifespan.
Dry naturally if possible. Low tumble only. Do not place on direct heat like radiators as it can melt delicate bamboo fibres and make them stiff.
