Swaddlebees pocket nappies are the trimmest fitting nappies we have come
across!The crotch area has been cut narrow to
reduce unnecessary bulk between the baby’s legs, yet still leaves
enough room to put in the required amount of absorbency. The leg openings
are cut higher than other pocket nappies, meaning that the nappy suits
babies with slim or chubby thighs equally well.
The shape of these nappies is very like that of ordinary pants, and
they are easy to pull down AND back up without bunching between the
legs. This makes them great for use as a pull-up when your child is
making the transition from nappies to potty training.
The outer layer is made from a soft, stretchy waterproof
polyester knit fabric (PUL) to keep wetness inside. Next to the baby's
skin is a layer of the softest cotton velour. Underneath this is a layer
of polyester fabric which will wick moisture away and 'trap' it into
the removable absorbent insert placed inside the pocket. This combination
of cotton velour on top with a stay-dry layer underneath means that
there is a natural fabric next to baby's skin but still a stay-dry effect.
It is highly recommended that Swaddlebees nappies are used with their
own brand inserts. The Swaddlebees inserts are cut to the super-trim
'hourglass' contour of the nappy and fit perfectly, with no 'bunching
up' between the legs. Some other popular trim inserts will also fit
inside the nappy, but pre-folds or folded terries etc. will NOT be suitable
for this nappy because they will cause bunching up, which may cause
inserts are made from either hemp or microterry and are available in
small, medium and large to fit the appropriate nappy size.
Hemp Made from FIVE layers of hemp
French terry, the inserts are sewn together at each end but open out
into a loop for quicker drying. Absorbency is 6 - 8 oz of fluid, depending
on the size.
Microterry Made from three layers
of plush microterry fabric. Absorbency is 7 - 10 oz of fluid, depending
on the size.
Swaddlebees nappies are available in small, medium, and large sizes.
(Click here for more details on
sizing). Because of their high cut legs openings, Swaddlebees will fit
a wide range of baby shapes.
|Fits chunky babies...

Available in a wide range of colours from white, to pretty pastels,
and bold primary colours and some lovely new prints! Please see the
ordering page for pictures
of all the available colours. Available with popper fastenings at the
sides making them idea for use as pull ups. The side-poppers also make
for a slim profile and is difficult for toddlers to undo. The separate
waist and thigh settings allow adjustment of each opening independently
to ensure a customized fit.
Trimness and absorbency
The pictures below illustrate just how slim Swaddlebees nappies are:
a Swaddlebees medium-sized nappy and insert is pictured with a Huggies
and a Pampers nappy of the same size.
of their trimness Swaddlebees will probably not suit every baby for
every occasion. However, the inserts are made from hemp or microterry,
which are more absorbent weight for weight than cotton, making them
very absorbent yet trim. On most babies, one hemp insert will last around
1.5 - 2 hours (absorbency 6 - 8oz depending upon size) and the microterry
a little longer. Some experts recommend changing nappies this frequently,
but in the UK people tend to change real nappies every 3 - 4 hours.
If you wish to make your nappy last longer use two Swaddlebees inserts
(if your baby has outgrown his small nappies the small inserts would
be suitable to boost the medium nappies and so on), or boost with a
Swaddlebees hemp insert or a microfibre cloth folded into three or four
layers on top of or wrapped around your insert. This will still give
a very trim fit as there will be no 'bunch up' between the legs.
For most babies Swaddlebees pocket nappies wouldn't be the nappy of
choice for night time.
A super-trim, easy to use pocket nappy, highly recommended as a pull
up during potty training.
Advantages and disadvantages
of Swaddlebees over other pocket nappies: The organic cotton velour
next to baby's skin is lovely and soft, and offers a pocket nappy with
a natural lining next to the skin, with the advantage of a stay-dry
layer underneath to increase baby's dryness compared with an ordinary
cotton nappy. The cotton layer does not stay as dry as polyester. Good
adjustability and excellent fit. Extremely trim and comfortable for
baby so great for playtimes! Multisized so you will need to purchase
several sizes as your baby grows. Will not suit for night time or for
heavy wetters. Ideal for use as a pull-up in the transition between
nappies and potty training.
What else will I need?
No liners or waterproof wraps are needed with these nappies, but you
will need pocket nappy inserts (see below).
It is recommended Swaddlebees nappies are used with their specially
designed inserts and boosted either with another Swaddlebees insert,
a swaddlebees boster or a folded microfibre cloth.
Re-sale value High.
Wash at 40 or up to 60ºC and hang to
dry. Do not use greasy rash cream. For more details click here.
Please don't expect top performance from organic
cotton velour-lined nappies until they have been washed at least three
times to remove the natural oils and fluff up the fibres.
Important: when you first
receive your nappies you might think that you have ordered or been sent
the wrong size as they do look very trim. However, please do check the
size by trying them on your baby. They are much larger than they appear.
