These bamboo boosters add extra absorbancy to your nappy allowing it to be worn for longer. They come in very handy for nightime use to make your chosen nappy last through the night without leaks.
These single layers of fleece can be used to add a stay dry layer between your baby and the nappy. They also catch solids and make it easier to tip it down the toilet and protect your nappy from staining.
These can be used in place of a fleece liner and disposed of in the bin. Some of ours may say that they’re flushable, they are not! They have the potential to block your toilet and even if they don’t, they do cause problems further down the sewage system. Manufacturers have changed their packaging to reflect this but some of our stock was bought before this was done.
These cotton wipes can be used in place of disposables. Simply wet with water and use to clean your baby at each nappy change and pop in your nappy bucket or wet bag along with your used nappy.
