Material: 100% merino wool (incl. the waistbands)
Two layers of merino wool with extra third layer in the wettest zone between the legs to boost the absorbency. For highest baby’s comfort, the seams are sewn outward so they don’t rub inside, no marks on the skin. The merino wool waistband is gentle to the baby’s legs and tummy.
The cover has a medium-wide shape and is suitable primarily over fitted nappies, but can work with squares or prefolds, too (when fastened by snappy). It is easy to put on – even on a very active child.
The wool cover is made of 100% merino wool and so needs very gentle maintenance. It needs to be washed and lanolized properly before first use – lanolin is what helps the wool become waterproof.
Since lanolized wool has an amazing self-cleaning ability, you can just let the cover air dry between uses and if not soiled, wash every 2-3 weeks. Lanolizing is less frequent – about every 4-6 weeks.
WASHABLE NAPPIES HAVE SEVERAL ADVANTAGES
They are good for your baby's bottom: nappy rash is much less common with washable nappies. This is because disposable nappies consist of 15-30% plastic. Disposable nappies contain super-absorbent granules that absorb moisture, but these also dry out baby's skin and make them more susceptible to infections. The chemicals in disposable nappies also tend to cause irritated or sensitive skin. Washable nappies are made from natural, highly absorbent fabrics such as cotton, bamboo, hemp and microfibre. These fabrics are highly absorbent and, although they feel wet to the touch, they can't damage baby's bottom because they don't pull moisture away from it.
They are good for the environment: on average we use 1 ton of disposable nappies per child. In comparison, washable nappies hardly create any waste. Both the production and the washing of the nappies results in 1.5-2.5 times less CO2 emissions compared to disposable nappies. On top of that, washable nappies require 7 times less land to produce the raw materials. For every child using disposable nappies, 6 trees are needed and 67 litres of crude oil are needed to produce plastic.
Less chance of a nappy leak with washable nappies.
Washable nappies are wider between the legs, which allows for good hip development. The washable nappy pushes the legs into the frog position, which allows the head of the hip to be pushed firmly into the hip socket. The position of the hips has no influence on the babies' motor development, they do not roll over, crawl or step at a later age than babies using disposable nappies.
Babies using washable nappies are potty-trained faster, on average 6 months earlier than those using disposable nappies. They become aware of wetting in the washable nappy more quickly. This saves a lot of time and a lot of disposable nappies in toddlerhood.
- They are also good for your wallet: the first year of life we spend on average 500-650 euros on disposable nappies. So opting for washable nappies can save you money.
