Tots Bots Fleece Wraps
Sized fleece nappy wrap. Price £7.50
lovely, soft wraps are made from very dense polar fleece (like the fleece
used in outdoor clothing) with a double layer in the crotch area, making
them slim fitting for a fleece wrap, whilst holding moisture in exceptionally
The Tots Bots fleece wraps are Aplix fastening with crossover tabs at
the waist. Made in Scotland.
Polyester fleece is not itself waterproof, but dense fleece is water-repellant,
whilst being very breathable. Because it allows excellent air exchange,
wetness from the absorbent nappy inside can evaporate, keeping the nappy
area cooler and drying the nappy out to some extent. This, together
with the fact that fleece makes a lovely, soft comfortable wrap makes
it ideal for night time use. Its hard to believe that these wraps will
not leak overnight (it took us about two years to try one but I wish
we had tried them earlier!). Provided the nappy is absorbent enough
most people find they don't leak, although the evaporation can sometimes
make clothes feel a little 'steamy' in the morning.
Of course, fleece wraps can also be used during the day, and the eye-catching
colours make them ideal for summer "t-shirt and nappy showing off"!
Designed with a generous cut, these wraps will fit over most nappies.
The Size 0 has a slim cut and is intended for use with boosters, prefolds
etc. on a newborn baby, but will not fit over most shaped nappies. For
use over shaped nappies on a newborn start with Size 1. Also, if using
the Size 2 Tots Bots nappies (without Aplix) from birth you will need
the Size 1 wrap from birth. Available in four sizes:
Size 0 Birth - 12lb ( - 5.5kg)
Size 1 Birth/10lb - 20lb (4.5kg -
Size 2 20lb - 35lb (9.1kg - 15.9kg)
Size 3 30lb + (13.6kg +)
Available in bright red - the 'Red Wrap'.
& disadvantages A high-performing fleece wrap. Soft, 'no
marks' comfortable fit. Lightweight and quick drying. Aplix fastening
only. Water-resistant, not waterproof, but very breathable and allows
evaporation. However, if the nappy underneath gets sodden and the baby
is sitting or lying in the same position for a long time the pressure
can cause wicking through to the clothes (as in a candle-wick, drawing
Second hand value Good. A well-known
Care Machine wash at 40ºC with
other bright/dark colours for the first few washes in case of colour
runs. Washing with cotton nappies causes the fleece to become covered
in 'bobbles' of cotton, so wash with synthtics if this bothers you.
Hang to dry, do not tumble dry. Dries very quickly, within a few hours
in a warm place.
