Its great to see so many natural nappy options, whether you choose to use disposable, cloth or nappies with removable liners the below options are far better than the standard disposable nappies available. Not only are they better for the environment which is a huge factor when choosing nappies, they also contain less or no chemicals so they are better for your baby's bottom. Below we review natural nappies, to help you buy better.
|Pea Pods One Size Nappy - White||Price $19.95|
|Reusable nappy with bamboo insert|
PEAPODS ONE SIZE NAPPIES - WHITE PeaPods one size nappies are just that - they go from birth to toilet training. They come complete with an absorbent insert, so you have everything you need right there in the one nappy.
The absorbent insert is made from ultra absorbent bamboo. Bamboo is super soft, naturally antibacterial and a sustainable resource.The insert is made from two thick bamboo layers, which is folded into three and inserted into the nappy. The thickness and absorbency of the bamboo means that it holds a lot of wee!
- one sized nappy from birth to toilet training
- comes complete with a bamboo insert
- insert can be put in the pocket or snapped in for extra flexibility
- simple to adjust legs for nappy size - elastic works like a bra strap, tucked inside away from baby's skin
- adjustable poppers for a perfect fit around the tummy
- waterproof outer layer is made from PUL (polyurethane laminate)
It's so easy to change the size of the nappy as baby grows. Poppers around the tummy ensure that there's no leakage out of the top. Leg size is adjusted by a niftily hidden elastic in the legs, which you can tighten or loosen just like a bra strap. It's hidden away so that none of the parts touch baby's skin. Genius!
PeaPods one size nappies have extra flexibility when it comes to absorbency as well. Grab a couple of extra bamboo inserts, then use the snap in option and just change the insert when it's wet. No need to change the outer shell of the nappy unless it's wet, too, which cuts down on your washing. The inserts can tuck iniside the nappy pockets, too, so you can then snap on a night booster as well for extra night-time absorbency or heavy wetters.
Comes in its own waterproof bag (which is super handy when you're out and about!).

Dimensions / materials:
Booster is comprised of 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton. Booster measures W 7.5cm L 21.5cm 5mm thick.
Nappy is adjustable - one size fits most.
Before first use: Prewash 3 times or soak in water overnight to remove any manufacturing residues and to ensure absorbency. Note: Bamboo takes up to 8 washes to maximise its absorbency. We do not suggest that all 8 need be done prior to using the nappies, however please keep this in mind.
After use: It is recommended to saturate the nappy with tap water to increase the longevity, as urine is acidic and may wear the fabrics and elastic faster. Soiled nappies are very similar. Simply dispose of your nappy liner, tip rolling poos straight into the loo or rinse off the poo with tap water, and saturate before placing in your dry lidded nappy bucket.
- Use half the recommended strength powder detergent. We recommend using chemical free detergent. Do NOT use: bleach, fabric softeners, or vinegar, or products containing enzymes.
- Pre-rinse, particularly soiled nappies.
- Suede cloth is stain resistant and any residing stains are best treated by the sun only.
- Flushable liners may be washed and reused if not soiled. Flushable liners are not recommended for septic tanks.
- Tip – baking soda increases pH, neutralises odours and breaks down residues which may be causing leaks and unwanted smells. Use it in the wash, in the dry nappy bucket, or as a separate wash for nappies with a residual stink.
