Motherease Airflow Wraps
Soft, breathable, popper-fastening waterproof
nappy wrap. Price from £9.75
This 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
is 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 seperate
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.
The combination of an AirFlow wrap over a Sandys
nappy (boosted) or a Huggle makes an excellent reliable night nappy.

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 -
Medium 10lb - 20lb (4.5kg
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'. Pictures of these prints can been seen here.
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.
Care 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.
