IMPORTANT

Because this is an entirely new design, I suggest that you play with ALL the folds for a while, so you understand EXACTLY how the adjustments work.
"Right" and "left” refers to YOUR right and left.
The widest part of the nappy will be referred to as the wings
The long part of the nappy will be referred to as the tongue.

Once the tongue is doubled or tripled, it will be referred to as the flap

Washing

Do not wash above 60ºC

For best results use washing powder rather than liquid.

Use a full dose of detergent – biological works best.

Do not use fabric conditioner, although an occasional dose will no harm the nappy.

Use a long wash programme.

Give nappies a cold rinse before and an extra rinse after your full wash programme.

These nappies will air dry overnight on an indoor airer.

Preferably line dry.

DO NOT tumble on high heat.

Do not place directly on a heated surface or radiator to dry.

Newborn Babies - 5-10 lbs approximately

Fold the top of the wings down a couple of inches (or even more) at the top, behind the main part of the nappy. This fold can be doubled if your baby is very tiny, and played with and reduced as your baby grows

Fold the tongue lengthwise in 3, so it is triple thickness (or even 4 thicknesses, if your baby is very tiny)

Lay your baby with his/her waist at the top of the back of the nappy

Pull the flap made by the tongue up between your baby's legs.

Pull the left wing across his/her tummy, pulling it tight around his/her back, and tucking it right round under his back if necessary.(NB. This is slightly different from on the original video)

Pull the right wing across his/her tummy, but fold it underneath itself, so the fold comes to the middle of the front of the flap.

Use a nappy nippa to hold the nappy in place.

Tuck up about 1” around the top of each leg

Add a nappy cover – either a PUL wrap, such as a Nature Babies wrap, or a wool nappy cover


Young babies - 9-12 lbs approx
Fit as above, but lessen the first fold, and reduce the tongue to 2 thicknesses if necessary.

Toddlers 12-20lbs approx

As above, but there is no need to fold down the back of the nappy at this stage. Adjust the length of the tongue, to fit, and add the small insert inside the tongue folds, to increase absorbency.

Tuck under about 1" around the top of each leg.

Add a nappy cover – either a PUL wrap, such as a Nature Babies wrap, or a wool nappy cover

Larger babies

As above, but use the large insert instead of the small one, to increase absorbency. For extra absorbency use both inserts.

Tuck under about 1" around the top of each leg.

Add a nappy cover – either a PUL wrap, such as a Nature Babies wrap, or a wool nappy cover
