The Inserts – How to Fold
How to Fit on Baby
Step by Step – It’s Simple!
- Snap In Insert
Open Nappy & snap the insert into the back of the nappy
- Lay Inserts in Position
Position your long tails as required underneath the soft hourglass layer so the tails are folded . ie Boys to the front, Girls to the middle as above.
- Position Inserts & Secure Legs
Lay baby down on the nappy. Bring the all layers up between the legs & fasten each of the leg snaps in place (one on each side) so they are firm fitting. Each side can be on a different snap, it doesn’t need to be even.
- Secure Waist Snaps
Secure the waist snaps on each side. Again the most important thing is to get the right fit around the waist. They can be on different snaps each side & don’t need to match up to the leg snaps.
Run your finger around the leg elastics & ensure it is sitting i the ‘undie line’, not down the thigh
- Add Cover
Add your Nappy Cover or Wool Cover (lanolised) and ensure all the night nappy is covered & bed time!
Tips & Troubleshooting
Leaking nappies is usually down to fit or absorbency. Firstly remember all bamboo inserts take up to 10 washes to reach maximum absorbency so it may be as simple as this, so just change bub a little more often or run the boosters through some extra clothes cycles to speed up the max. absorbency.
Once they are at max absorbency & still getting leaks overnight if your nappies are fully soaked, then add an extra booster (any brand of insert) on the outside of the nappy, under the cover.
Check your Fit – Ensure your Nappy Cover is fully covering the night nappy & there is nothing peeking out of the cover. Wicking will happen if clothes are toughing the inner nappy. Ensure your leg & waist snaps are firmly in position. You should be able to run a finger under each elastic so firm, but not tight.
Yes you do! The Night Nappy does not have a waterproof layer so you need to add a Nappy Cover or Wool Cover to keep clothes/bedding dry. Wool is the recommended because it is all natural, breathable & can be used for weeks without the need to re-wash. Check out our Wool Cover details for more info.
