Care & Fit Instructions

CARING FOR & FITTING YOUR NAPPIES

Washing Your Nappies

  • Dry Pail: Shake solids into the toilet, rinse out excess and dry pail (any basket with holes) .
    • For Night Nappies, hot hand wash with small amount of detergent OR go straight to Step 2, but wash on 60 degrees
  • Pre-wash (1-2 days): Short cycle using 1/2 recommended detergent for heavily-soiled loads, 40-60 degrees, spin (800-1000rpm) and dry pail
  • Main Wash (1-3 days): Long cycle (2-3hrs), full dose of detergent, 40-60 degrees, spin (800-1000rpm) and dry pail
  • Dry: For inserts (dry in the sun or in dryer); and for nappy shells (dry in shade or on low heat)

BE CAREFUL OF…

  • Fabric softeners can be used, but infrequently (e.g. 1 in every 3rd wash) as they can reduce absorption of the inserts.
  • If using nappy balms containing zinc/petroleum, place a reusable or disposable liner on top of the insert
    • It is ok to use nappy balms as long as you have: (1) adequate agitation (sufficient loading in the machine), (2) non-eco detergent and (3) warm-hot water – this will help wash out your rash creams.
    • Test your wash routine on a microfleece liner first if unsure.

Fitting Your Nappies

  1. Start with nappy higher at the back
  2. Pull the front of the nappy out towards you (so that the inner gussets are stretched) and then up over bub's belly
  3. Put your hand over the front of the nappy and squeeze the front into a 'taco', so that the inner gussets sit right in the groin area of both legs
  4. Clip the first hip snaps on either side
  5. (If using rise snaps), use your index and middle finger, gently push up any extra material in between the rise snaps
  6. Clip in the rest of the waist snaps
  7. Run your fingers along the inner gussets and tuck/roll them in as needed. The outer gusset does not need to sit against the skin, only the inner gusset
