One Size Reusable Cloth Nappy - Nature Detectives - Baba & Boo
Our one size nappies are suitable for babies from 10-35lb - approximately 8 weeks old right up to when you start potty training.
The popper system on the front of the nappy allows the nappy to grow with your baby. You simply snap the poppers together to make the nappy smaller.
As your baby grows, undo them to make the nappy bigger.
Pre-washing before use helps increase the absorbency of your nappies. Follow the washing instructions below and repeat up to three times. You don't need to dry them between washes.
After use, knock any solids into the toilet (or remove the biodegradable liner if you have used one). Put the used nappy in the nappy bucket until wash day.
It can help to put the nappies on a cold rinse before washing as this ensures all the solids have been washed away before the washing cycle.
Your nappies can be washed at 60°C, although many parents find that 40°C is usually sufficient.
Use your usual detergent. Our nappies are designed to fit in with you, not the other way around.
Don't use any fabric conditioner or bleaching agents
Your nappies are best dried naturally, although you can put them on a low setting in the tumble dryer. Natural is best for your nappies and the planet too.
Do be careful if they have been near heat such as the tumble dryer or radiator and don't stuff the inserts back in straight away. The heat can weaken the elastic and cause it to snap.
If you do need to use barrier/nappy rash cream, ensure you use a liner.
Outer is made from 100% polyester with a polyurethane lining.
Inner is made from very soft micro-fleece.
Inserts are two layers bamboo and two layers micro-fibre.
Poppers are made of plastic (but as the nappy is reusable you will be saving lots more plastic being used in the long run!)
Baba & Boo is run in the UK by Eve, who is an "accidental business woman". Eve decided to set up a business after leaving work and becoming a stay at home mum, she hated the thought of throwing away disposable nappies so set up Baba & Boo making and selling amazing reusable nappies and sanitary pads.
They use their experience of working with fab manufacturers to ensure that their products are made under the right conditions. No children make the products and they are made by happy people, who don't work stupidly long hours. All of Baba & Boo's factories have to adhere to their strict ethical code of conduct. They ensure the products are tested too, to ensure that they don't contain any nasty chemicals.
As a company, Baba & Boo support Bliss (a charity that helps premature and sick babies in the UK) and give monthly donations. They also support Nkouranga Orphange in Tanzania. Every 3 months or so, they send out pre-loved nappies for the babies in the orphanage and sponsor a child there.
Baba & Boo also buy trees. They offset their carbon footprint and they recycle everything when they can.
Eve says that " Seven years on and I have stopped about 15 million disposable nappies going to landfill. I love that. Being in business, is about making a difference. It has allowed me to stay home with my children and make tonnes of memories with them. But I am so proud of the difference that Baba & Boo makes to this world and we couldn't do it without you."
We think they are amazing!
