Our newborn nappies are especially designed to be used from day one, and will last you from about 5lbs to 18lbs (normally about six months).
Our nappies are called pocket nappies. There’s a pocket at the back of the waterproof nappy, where you put the absorbent inserts. Each of our nappies come with two bamboo mix inserts.
When your baby is teeny tiny, you will normally only need to use one insert, which should last up to four hours. Once your baby starts to grow (which is always too quick!) and you find the nappy is not lasting as long, it's time to add the other insert.
If you want you can use a liner. This sits between the nappy and baby’s bottom to catch any solid poo and keep wetness away from baby’s skin. Liners aren’t essential (especially for exclusively breastfed babies who don’t produce anything...solid…) but many parents find they make changes easier.
Don't forget that when you buy our Surf's Up? nappies and bags then you're supporting the incredible work of Surfer's Against Sewage. Ten per cent of the proceeds go towards the charity, which is at the forefront of the fight against plastic pollution.
You are going to love using our cloth nappies, so much better for your baby. Not to mention our world.

Completely free of nasties
The popper system on the front of the nappy allows the nappy to grow with your baby. Simply snap the poppers together to make the nappy smaller. As your baby grows undo them to make the nappy bigger.
Pre-washing before use helps increase the absorbency of your nappies. Follow the washing instructions below and repeat up to three times. You don't need to dry them between washes.
After use, knock any solids into the toilet (or remove the biodegradable liner if you have used one). Put the used nappy in the nappy bucket until wash day.
It can help to put the nappies on a cold rinse before washing as this ensures all the solids have been washed away before the washing cycle.
Your nappies can be washed at 60°C, although many parents find that 40°C is usually sufficient.
Use your usual detergent. Our nappies are designed to fit in with you, not the other way around.
Don't use any fabric conditioner or bleaching agents
Your nappies are best dried naturally, although you can put them on a low setting in the tumble dryer. Natural is best for your nappies and the planet too.
Do be careful if they have been near heat such as the tumble dryer or radiator and don't stuff the inserts back in straight away. The heat can weaken the elastic and cause it to snap.
If you do need to use barrier/nappy rash cream, ensure you use a liner.
Outer is made from 100% polyester with a polyurethane lining.
Inner is made from very soft microfleece.
Inserts are two layers bamboo and two layers microfibre.
Please note that a mistake that we did not pick up at the time means that earlier versions of our bamboo mix inserts were incorrectly labelled. The labels should have reflected the website description to read 70% bamboo, 30% microfibre.
