Prefolds


Pokkelokkie offers an elasticated prefold for babies under 6kg. The non elasticated prefold is a great night solution for babies over 8kg.

How to get the best fit:

If the prefold is too big/long, fold the wings down at the back to shorten the length of the nappy, flip it over and put it on.

Elasticated prefolds
  • Elastics contain runny poop (newborn until baby starts solids). 
  • Can be used day time or night time. 
  • May need additional boosting - lay one to two boosters inside the prefold flaps as below.
  • If the nappy gets very wet at two hours,add a booster between nappy that is on and the cover. See image below.
  • Watch our video.
Non elasticated prefolds
  • Recommend night nappies when boosted with two to three Pokkelokkie boosters OR a padfolded flat see below.

  • Add a fleece liner closest to the bum for a stay dry effect.
  • Once baby has solid poop these nappies can work for day time on older toddlers (18 months up).
  • There will always be leg gaps however, if the nappy is put on snug enough (follow the tips in the video) then the gaps will not cause any issues. 
  • Use fleece covers or longies at night.
  • Watch our video.
How to work with snappies
  • Once your nappy is on, place the snappy on, top lining it up with baby's hip. Push down (do not try and make this side grip onto anything) and keep holding with your thumb, then pull the other side across and let it grip the fabric.
  • Make sure to pull it firmly so it stretches. It requires tension to work.
  • Then pull the bottom one down and place pressure on it and it will grip the fabric.
How to soften hemp nappies
  • Due to no fabric softner, nappies can get stiffer. 
  • Pop them (already dry) in the tumble drier on LOW for 10 minutes.
  • Give them a hot iron if you do not have a drier.
  • Rub the nappy against itself. The friction results in a softer fabric.
