First-size shaped nappy by Nature Babies.
Price from £5.99
**New - mircroterry Diddy Diaper**
This little nappy from Nature Babies is ideal for newborn or premature
babies as it is trim-fitting and offers great value for money. Available
in either cotton or microterry with a cotton jersey lining. Gentle
covered elastic at the back of the waist and at the legs gives a comfortable
but snug fit to ensure good containment. Manufactured in the UK.
The cotton terry diddy diaper comes in 2 sizes.
The size 1 Diddy Diaper will fit from around 4lb (1.8Kg) and the front
can be folded down to achieve a customised fit on a tiny baby. Because
the 'wings' are long there is good adjustability to suit all shapes
The nappy will fit up to around 17lb (7.7Kg), so depending on your baby's
build it will last up until your baby is somewhere between 3 and 7 months
old (based on UK weight centile charts). You can use boosters to increase
the absorbency of the nappy towards the higher end of the weight range
The size 2 diddy diaper should fit from 13lb up to 35lb.
Some suggest that this nappy, once outgrown, can be used
to boost absorbency of other shaped nappies or pocket nappies. Whilst
they can be used like this, they do not make the trimmest boosters,
due to their elasticated waist and legs causing them to 'bunch up'.
You can choose between cotton terry or microterry. The outer layers
of the cotton terry Diddy Diaper are made from a lovely soft, stretchy,
long loop unbleached terry towelling with two inner layers made from
cotton jersey (the same fabric typically used for T-shirts) which stays
soft with repeated washing. The mircroterry version is made from a complete
layer of absorbent microterry and with two further layers hidden in
the middle. The inner layer of both the cotton terry and the microterry
Diddy Diapers is made from 100% cotton jersey, giving the option of
natural product next to your baby's skin. The Diddy Diaper is available
without fastening - the wings can be simply wraped over the baby's tummy
and held in place with either a snug-fitting wrap or a Nappi Nippa.
Alternatively the cotton terry Diddy Diaper is available with an Aplix
fastening that also gives a very wide range of settings.
Advantages & disadvantages compared
with other small shaped nappies: gives a trim neat fit on newborns,
relatively quick to dry, great value for money! It is similar to the
Bimble QD but the 'wings' are slightly longer than those on the Bimble
QD so it will fit for slightly longer. It also offers
the option of 100% natural fabric next to the skin. The cotton
terry takes longer to dry than the Bimble QD but the microterry is quicker.
What else will I need? You may choose to
use a Nappi Nippa with the non-Aplix
Diddy Diaper, 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
and you may wish to use a nappy liner.
