Motherease Airflow Wraps
Soft, breathable, popper-fastening waterproof nappy wrap.
The Motherease airflow wrap, along with the Motherease one-size nappy, is one of the longest-established reusable nappy systems in the UK and Canada! A real 'workhorse' wrap it s highly reliable. It is loose fitting with a high rise (nappy height) and ideally suited for use over shaped nappies. The design of the Airflow wrap is simple but effective. It fastens with poppers at the leg and waist, with three size options at the leg and two at the waist to allow for adjustment as your baby grows. Babies proportions vary enormously, and some may have tubby tums and thin legs and others chubby legs and trim tums. The separate leg and waist adjustability of the Motherease AirFlow wrap allows for a good fit whatever your baby's shape. The poppers are placed toward the front on the small size and at the sides on the larger sizes.
Appropriately named the 'Airflow', this wrap is 'breathable' in the sense that is allows air to billow in and out though gaps at the sides between the poppers without leaks. Made from a soft brushed polyester outer side with a polyurethane laminate (PUL) waterproof inner, making this a very lightweight, soft and pliable wrap. The elasticised waist and legs fit snugly but comfortably. Your baby will hardly know she is wearing one! The overall fit of the wrap is loose and baggy, with the leg fastenings coming relatively low down the thigh, but these features are what make it so airy and leakproof. The gap between the nappy and the wrap will decrease the chances of leaks. The design of the AirFlow wrap makes it particularly suitable for toddlers, as the poppers at the side are difficult for little fingers to undo.
Available in five sizes, though most babies will probably only need three from birth to potty training. The sizes required will depend on the baby's build:
XS: 6lb - 12lb (2.7kg - 5.5kg) Covers the same weight range as the small size but with a trimmer cut suitable for a smaller baby*.
Small: 6lb - 12lb (2.7kg - 5.5kg)
Medium: 10lb - 20lb (4.5kg - 9.1kg)
Medium/Large: 20lb - 27lb (9.1kg - 12.3kg) A slimmer cut wrap, but taller in the rise, making it suitable for slimmer babies. However, if cost is an issue you could safely skip this size.
Large: from 20lb (for chubbier babies) or 27lb (for slim babies) - 35lb (9.1/12.3kg - 15.9kg)
XL: 35lb - 45lb (15.9kg - 20.5kg)
Air Flow wraps are available in white, soft yellow and pastel blue, or four lovely Motherease 'Eco Theme' prints, each depicting a different important wildlife habitat: 'Our Oceans', 'Rainforest', 'Wetlands', 'Savanna' and 'Asia'.
Advantages & Disadvantages
Soft, lightweight and quick drying. Very reliable and durable. Poppers positioned at side make it a good wrap for toddlers. Excellent fit over virtually all shaped nappies. Separate adjustability of the legs and waist to customize fit. There is no need to fit this wrap tightly at the legs. Sorry, I can't think of any disadvantages except that is has a slight 'puffball' look when on due to it's generous cut and design which might not be to everyone's taste, but is very trim once under clothes. Good breathability. It may not fit babies with very chunky legs, though you could probably go up a size if the fit is tight at the leg. A wrap of quality and design that has yet to be beaten in terms of reliability (in our opinion)!
Fits over which nappies?
All shaped nappies and fastened terry squares. Not suitable for use with prefolds or pad-folded terries.
Second hand value Good.
A very well-tested and loved nappy wrap.
Machine washable at 40ºC or up to 60ºC. Can be tumble dried on low heat but hang drying will increase longevity. This wrap hang dries very quickly as it is lightweight and contains no absorbent material.
*If you are planning to use a onesize nappy or terry squares we suggest you choose the small wrap rather than the XS.
*The manufacturer of Motherease nappies prohibits all UK-based retailers from selling Motherease nappies outside the UK. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause*
