Shaped, multi-sized organic cotton velour nappy.
This really is a sumptuous, premium quality nappy. It is made from organic
cotton velour, an exciting new fabric for making nappies and is designed
to maximise absorbency with minimal bulk.
Cotton velour has the advantage over other forms of cotton knit of
remaining soft wash after wash, even in hard water areas. Made with
two luxurious layers of 100% certified organic cotton velour: a layer
on the outside and one on the inside, next to baby's skin. Inside these
layers is a hidden third layer of hemp jersey and a hidden sewn-in soaker
layer of hemp french terry. Hemp fabric is used to boost absorbency
without adding bulk as it is more absorbent than cotton and has anti-microbial
Further absorbency is added by an attached 'flap-out' booster composed
of two layers of hemp french terry and topped with another layer of
soft organic cotton velour.
The nappy has a total of seven layers of absorbent fabric in the area
it is most needed. However, as three of these layers are in the
flap-out booster Swaddlebees Organic Velour nappies do not take excessively
long to dry. The booster can be folded according to where the child
needs most absorbency (underneath or to the back for a girl and more
to the front for a boy).
nappy benefits from a similar cut to Swaddlebees pocket nappies. It
is narrow across the crotch to reduce the bulk between baby’s
legs. The leg openings are high-cut, meaning that the nappy suits babies
with slim or chubby thighs equally well. Gentle elastic at the front
and back and around the leg openings ensure nothing escapes and they
give a close but comfortable fit. The nappy fastens with two poppers
on each side, allowing separate adjustment of the waist and leg. Fastening
at the side gives the nappy a slim profile and makes it difficult for
toddlers to undo their nappy. This nappy can be pulled up and down,
making it particularly suitable for potty training toddlers.
An outer wrap will be required with this nappy
(see below for suggestions).

Advantages & disadvantages compared with other shaped nappies
A luxurious, absorbent and reliable nappy. Will fit a wide range of
baby shapes well. Very trim fitting and unrestricting for baby, yet
suitable for heavier wetters. The organic cotton velour fabric will
stay soft with repeated washing. Slower drying than some shaped nappies,
but drying speed is good for the level of absorbency offered. A relatively
What else will I need? With this
nappy you may choose to use liners, either disposable or reusable (e.g.
fleece), though they are not necessary. For night time use you will
probably need to use boosters - pop any booster or a Swaddlebees hemp
booster or pocket nappy insert under the flap-out booster.
