Product Description


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 of babies. 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 if necessary.

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

The diddy diaper 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 cloth nappy booster to increase absorbency and you may wish to use a nappy liner.

Suggested wraps

Motherease Rikki wraps (try Extra Small for a neater fit on lighter-weight babies), Nature Babies nappy wraps (try Newborn for a neater fit), Tots Bots nappy wraps (try Size 0 for a neater fit).

Second hand value

Good. Demand for low-cost first nappies is high.


Wash at 40ºC (or up to 60ºC if heavily soiled) and hang or tumble dry on any heat. Fasten Aplix and wash the nappy inside out for best results. Click for more information on caring for shaped nappies.
