Nappy Boosters: are simply a pad made from a number of layers of absorbent fabric that sit in or popper into a nappy to increase absorbency. All our boosters are versatile enough to be used in all our shaped nappies. They can also be used to boost the absorbency of pocket nappies (unless the booster has a stay-dry layer) and in the same way most pocket nappy inserts can also make excellent boosters.
Nappy Liners: As the name suggests, liners line the nappy, next to baby's skin, to catch solids and/or keep skin dry, depending upon the fabric they are made from. See below for further details about nappy liners.
Booster/liner combosSome boosters are topped with a lining fabric, making them a liner and booster in one. With these there is no need to use a paper liner, though of course you can if you like.
Motherease 'sit in' boosters
These soft-knit terry boosters simply sit inside the Motherease Sandy's, Toddle-ease, Multifit, All-in-One or other brand of nappy adding extra absorbency. The regular (12.5cm x 30cm) holds an extra 170ml and the large (14cm x 35cm) an extra 200ml. Available in white or unbleached cotton, stay dry fabric, organic cotton and bamboo. The Stay Dry booster offers the same absorbency as the other Motherease boosters but is topped with a stay-dry polyester layer which allows wetness through into the terry but is not absorbent so dries quickly, helping to keep baby's skin dry.

Liners are available in a number of fabrics for different purposes. We stock a variety of fleece liners, silk liners and paper liners.
Fleece liners: Suitable for lining shaped nappies (not pocket nappies, which already have a fleece layer). Polyester fleece (just like in your jacket) does not absorb moisture but allows it to flow through into the absorbent nappy and then dries very quickly, maintaining a soft, dry layer against your baby's bottom. You will need to change the liner at each nappy change, whether it is soiled or not. Stretch over the loo and allow solids to drop off and rinse if necessary before washing. Non-staining. Simply wash with your nappies. Reusable liners work out as more economical than paper liners.
Silk liners: are usually used for silk's natural healing properties rather than an everyday liner.
Biodegradable "paper" liners: Flushable liners made from cellulose are designed to make removing the solids from the nappy easier and keeping nappy soiling to a minimum. Simply remove from the nappy and flush away. Can be used with any type of nappies, including pocket nappies (though the stay-dry effect of the fleece or polyester lining will be reduced as the paper stays damp).

100% silk liner from Disana. Silk is a natural healer, helping to prevent or relieve nappy rash.
