Our nappies are called pocket nappies. At the back of the nappy, there is a pocket, which is where you put the inserts. Each of our nappies comes with 2 bamboo mix inserts, which you put into the pocket and this makes the nappy absorbent. When stuffing the inserts into the pocket, ensure that they are flat.
When your baby is brand new, you will only need one insert and this should last you 2-3 hours. Once your baby starts to grow (which is always too quick!) and you find the nappy is not lasting as long, this is the time to add the other insert. This will ensure the nappy lasts longer.
If you want you can use an added liner. This sits between the nappy and baby’s bottom to catch any solid poo and keep wetness away from your baby’s skin. Liners aren’t essential (especially for exclusively breastfed babies who don’t produce anything...solid…) but many parents find they make changes easier.
You will find our newborn nappies are really easy to put on, as they have velcro fastenings, so make them very similar to disposables in how you fit them on your baby.
You are going to love using our cloth nappies, so much better for your baby. Not to mention our world.

How To Adjust
Our newborn nappies are suitable for babies from 5-18lb. Approximately from birth to six months. The popper system on the front of the nappy, allows the nappy to grow with your baby. You simply snap the poppers together to make the nappy smaller and as your baby grows, undo them and this will make the nappy larger.
How To Care For Your Nappy
Pre-washing before use helps increase the absorbency of your nappies. Follow the washing instructions below and repeat up to three times.
After use, knock any solids into the toilet or remove the biodegradable liner if you have used one. Put used nappy in the nappy bucket until wash day.
It can help to put the nappies on a cold rinse before washing as this ensures all the solids have been washed away before the washing cycle.
Your nappies can be washed at 60°C, although 40°C is usually sufficient.
Use your usual detergent, our nappies are designed to fit in with you, not the other way around.
Don't use any fabric conditioner or bleaching agents
Your nappies are best dried naturally, although you can put them on a low setting in the tumble dryer. Natural is best for your nappies and the planet too.
Do be careful if they have been near heat such as the tumble dryer or radiator and don't stuff the inserts back in straight away. The heat can weaken the elastic and cause it to snap.
If you do need to use barrier/nappy rash cream, ensure you use a liner.
