Some of your questions may be answered by watching this video otherwise have a read below.
How many Nappies do I need?
We suggest about 6-8 nappies for a 24 hour period. That is each day the baby will need around 6-8 changes. So, if you are happy to wash every day, then you will need 12-16 nappies in total. If you would prefer to wash twice a week, then we would recommend 24-30 nappies in total.
I’m worried about the smell.
Don’t be. All you need to do is put the dirty nappies in a bucket or container with no lid and as many holes as possible so they can air. No water or soaking required. Alternatively, you can easily put the nappies straight in the laundry. poo can be collected in the bamboo liners and disposed of immediately. All smells disappear post a good washing.
Do I need to handle poo?
Let’s hope not. Simply insert a bamboo liner that can thrown away or pop the nappy under hot water until rinsed then wash away.
Can I wash with other items?
Of course. Nappies do not need to be washed exclusively. Pop them in with other everyday items or your babies clothes. A pre-wash is recommended when doing this.
What do I need to dry the nappies?
Sun!!! We always recommend popping the nappies on the line to dry. Even on overcast/rainy days, the sun can still get through and help clean and dry the nappies. Otherwise the tumble dryer is fine.
What sizes do you have?
One size fits all (well most!). We have press studs so you can adjust as you go. We do recommend the best fit is 8 weeks old - 2.5 years old.
Do you come and collect the Nappies?
Unfortunately not. We leave all the washing to you and once purchased, the nappies are yours to keep!
What do I actually need?
1 x cloth nappy set and you’re off! Optional are our bamboo liners that help catch poos. Otherwise just grab a couple of single nappies to trial (they come with microfiber inserts)
What's the difference with the different inserts?
How often do they need to be washed?
We suggested to tie your washing into your current regime. There is not specific timing around washing.
What can I do for night nappies or heavy flows?
Simple!! Pop in an additional Charcoal or hemp insert. You should be able to fit 3 inserts in a nappy.
What do I wash the nappies with?
We recommend using a strong powder detergent but you’re welcome to use what best suits you. Whatever you are currently using to wash your clothes is fine. It's a good idea to wash on a hot cycle too!
How do I start?
Make a purchase here and then remember to wash you Nappies twice and dry twice in the sun before use. Like a new towel, nappies are most absorbent after a few initial washes.
Good Luck and remember we are here to help! You can do it! You can Be Bliss Baby.
