Reusable Cloth Pocket Nappies
Washable cloth pocket nappy, one size fits most from approx 9lbs/ 4 kgs - 30lbs / 14kgs.
With stay dry grey fleece lining and a ruched pocket for added boosters - choose two from bamboo or bamboo microfibre. (We do not recommend 2 microfibre inserts so you will be given the option of 2 Bamboo Charcoal or 1 Bamboo Charcoal and 1 Microfibre.)
Adjustable rise to fit from newborn to potty training. In a range of cute gender neutral patterns.
All nappy yarns hold current Oeko-tex certification.
Why are your nappies coloured grey inside?
Why not? It didn't make sense to us that one of the most soiled things you will ever wash should be white! The dye used is of course formaldehyde free and certified safe to use.
How do I deal with poo?
Our pocket nappy has an attached stay dry inner but you may like to add a reusable or disposable liner if poop isn't ploppable yet. Most solids just roll off fleece so you may find it is not necessary
You want to get as much of the poo off as possible before putting your nappy into the washing machine.
Turn the pocket so the fleece faces the toilet and see saw back and forth so most of the solids drop into the toilet and either rinse the in the flush of the toilet (hang on to it!!), or have something handy to scrape any poo from the liner into the toilet.
Disposable Liner - Tip the poo into the toilet and bin the liner (be careful not to flush the liner as most are not flushable)
Do I need to soak my cloth nappy before washing it?
We recommend dry pailing your nappies in a nappy pail, Strucket, mesh bag or large wetbag as a storage system between washes because fabrics in your nappies can become damaged if soaked in water for long periods of time and it will reduce the life of your nappy. When dry pailing your nappies, ensure you do not leave any longer than 2 days before washing as pee & poo can damage the material in your nappies and cause 'balding' spots.
What is the best way to rinse or pre wash my nappies?
You can do a rinse cycle or quick wash in your washing machine (more details below) use no detergent or a half scoop. Do not soak in harsh stain removers or bleach as this can damage the fibres in your nappy. We recommend using powder over liquids and pods, you can use bio at 40 degrees or non bio if it has cold wash technology and add some vanish / napisan / laundry antibacterial cleanser if you feel you need to.
How do I wash my cloth nappy?
Ensure that you deal with the poo before you start! See above: *Note please wash colours separately.
No need to remove all of the inserts just give them a tug out the pocket slightly when they are first going into your nappy storage.
Run the longest cycle on your washing machine, you should pick a wash between 40-60℃ (check care label of load, PUL prefers a cooler wash) and use the appropriate amount of detergent for the size of your load. As eco friendly as we are, we avoid using the pre-programmed eco cycle as you'll need the full amount of water to wash the absorbent fabric the nappies are made of.
My nappies are new, where do I start?
We recommend that you prewash your nappies and especially inserts / boosters before use. If you run a full cycle with a little detergent twice before using, this will enable your nappies to become more absorbent.
We recommend using The Strucket or similar to rinse and strain your nappies prior to putting them in your washing machine. Just using plain water is fine, or you can use The Strucket to agitate the water and rinse off any remaining poo if you like.
What wipes should you use alongside your reusable nappies?
Our premium wipes kit is recommended alongside your cloth nappies, plus a wetbag of some sort. It has a fresh wet wipes container and 25 premium wipes. Then used wipes can go into the nappy storage you use -either a nappy pail or large wetbag.
