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
Medium and large fitteds: the smaller booster can be laid at the bottom. Fold the long snake insert into three if the nappy is very wet with no dry patches in the morning.
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:

Tummy sleepers
If the front of the nappy is very wet and the cover feels damp in the morning, add a booster length ways at the top of the night nappy (see the mustard booster in the image below) to give extra layers upfront.
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.
