Dawn patrol day fitteds
After three months - day nappies only.
Always use both inserts in the nappy.
Require a fleece or SuperWrap cover.
How to lay the inserts
Small (2 - 7kg): Always use both inserts. The thinner and the thicker one.
Medium and large fitteds:
Longer one under the smaller one. Lay the fleece liner on top.
Siesta night nappies
How to get the best fit:
Fitted nappies do not need to be so tight that deep red elastic marks occur. Run your fingers around the bum casing from back to front once on. It should be nice and comfortable for baby.
How wet is too wet?
From about three months, night nappies soak up an entire nights output. Expect a very damp nappy in the morning however if it is soaking wet (with no dry patches) and the fleece cover feels damp, add another booster/small padfolded flat between the cover and the nappy that is on like this:
How to soften nappies
Due to no fabric softener, nappies can get stiffer.
Scrunch it up and rub the nappy against itself for a few minutes. The friction results in a softer fabric.
Pop them (already dry) in the tumble drier on LOW for ten minutes.
Give them a hot iron if you do not have a drier.
