Prefolds


How to get the best fit:

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

Newborn elasticated prefolds
  • Elastics contain newborn poop. 
  • Can be used day time or night time. 
  • May need additional boosting - lay the booster inside the prefold flaps as below.
  • If the nappy gets very wet at two hours,add a booster between nappy that is on and cover . See image below.
  • Watch our video.
Non elasticated prefolds

  • Once baby has solid poop these nappies can work well for day time on older toddlers (18 months up).
  • Excellent night nappies when boosted with two to three boosters.
  • Add a fleece liner for night use.
  • 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. The nappy must sit snug up against baby. The cover will hold it in place.
  • Use fleece covers 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.
