Getting Started with our Reusable Nappies
Just got your first reusable nappy? Great work!!
Like any new fabric that need to be able to capture moisture, it needs a few washes and/or soaks to reach its full soaking abilities. It can take about 8 washes for the nappy to do so. So as you get the nappies soak them cold for 24 hours, or give them a couple of washes and you are good to go!
Please note to only soak them this first time. After that we don't recommend soaking them as they will loose their waterproofing abilities.
Getting your Reusable Pocket Nappies Ready
Having your reusable pocket nappies ready to go makes it quicker and a bit easier as you need to do a nappy change. Once nappies are clean and dry it doesn't take much time to get them ready.
The Little Genie Bamboo Charcoal Nappy is a pocket nappy. It consists of three layers: The waterproofed layer, the quick dry fabric and the booster.
One or two?
For extra support we advice to put 2 booster inserts, especially during sleep time.
Stuffing the nappy
Grab one end of the insert booster(s) and thread through the pocket.
Nice and smooth
Make sure you flatten the insert as it is inside the pocket of the reusable nappy. It is easy with your hand to even out all the corners so it is smooth.
Straighten it up
Grab a hold of each ends and again straighten it up so it is flat.
Once stuffed, you can button it up so it is easy to store and then grab one for use or as you are on the go!
Washing your Little Genie Bamboo Charcoal Reusable Pocket Nappies
Once used, take off the nappy and remove insert(s) from pocket. Flush any solids and either compost bio-liner or if solids dispose in rubbish. We do not recommend soaking the nappies as they will lose their waterproofing plus it is a great place for germs to grow. Rinse to remove number 1 and 2, then leave to dry pail till you are ready to wash them. Wash with a small amount of detergent at 40-60 degrees. Hang to dry in sunlight or tumble dry on low.
