2 or birth to potty, fleece-lined shaped nappy by Easy Peasy Nappies.
A cleverly designed, versatile nappy made from a layer of long loop
pile cotton terry towelling (90% cotton), with an extra strip between
the legs, and a lining of incredibly soft, fluffy polyester fleece covering
the whole of the inside. The polyester fleece helps to keep the nappy
feeling soft and dry aganist the baby's skin. The terry and fleece layers
form a pocket with an opening at the front where a detachable, three
layer booster is fixed and pushed into the nappy to increase absorbency.
The booster can be detached for laundering, meaning that there are only
two layers of terry sandwiched together
in the nappy and three in the booster, making cleaning more efficient
and making it very quick drying for a shaped nappy. Gentle covered elastic
at the back of the waist and at the legs gives a comfortable but snug
fit to ensure good containment. Bumbles can be fastened with a Nappi
Nippa, ensuring a good fit over a wide range of weights and shapes.
Also available in Poppers fastening. Manufactured in the UK.
Bumbles can be used simply as a Size 2
nappy to fit from around 15lb (6.8Kg) to potty
training, following on from a Size 1 nappy such as Bimbles,
Diddy Diapers, Tots
Bots Size 1 or Sandys small.
To use as a Size 2 nappy use with the booster inside. The nappy absorbency
can easily be increased by placing boosters into the pocket as required.
Bumble can also be adjusted to fit from birth:
to adjust remove the detachable booster and reduce the height / rise
of the nappy by means of two sets of poppers. One set of poppers is
located on a flap just inside the pocket, at the front of the nappy.
The others are inside the pocket at the back of the 'seat' of the nappy.
When these are fastened together the fleece layer and terry layer at
the front of the nappy 'telescopes' down inside the pocket, reducing
the height of the nappy. This sounds more complicated than it is! Because
the nappy is quick to dry it is a good option even when you are using
a lot of nappies for a newborn and need a quick turnaround of your nappies.
The picture shows two Bumbles: one
poppered down into its smallest size and the other at the size 2 setting.
Available in white terry with a white fleece inner.
Choose between a Nappi Nippa or poppers fastening style.
Advantages & disadvantages compared
with other shaped nappies: Quick to dry and good value for money, even
if used as a size 2 nappy only. Easy to boost - simply place a booster
inside the fleece pocket. As with all one-size nappies, bulkier than
a first size nappy, though the Bumble is less bulky than the Motherease
One Size on a newborn in our opinion. See discussion on one
size 'v' multisized nappies for more information.
What else will I need? If
you choose the Nippa fastening Bumble you will need Nappi
Nippas, though a close-fitting wrap should hold it in place for
a newborn. You will need a wrap with
this nappy (see below for suggestions). You may need a booster to increase
absorbency for heavier wetters or for night time (any is suitable, provided
it doesn't have a stay dry layer on top) and you may wish to use a disposable
nappy liner to help with removal of solids, though it is not necessary.
