The Teddy is slightly longer than other nappies and the nappy can be a bit too long for some newborns. We have had poppers added onto the main body of the nappy so it is more versatile and can be adapted for smaller babies. On the size 1 nappy there are one row of poppers so that the length can be shortened for a small newborn setting or the nappy can be kept in the standard setting. In the size 2 nappy there are two rows of poppers so you can use it birth to potty (will be very bulky) or so you have great flexibility on fit with small, medium and standard fitting.
The nappies are relatively narrow between the legs so although when poppered down it becomes bulkier at the front, this does not affect the fit between the legs significantly. Using size 2 as a birth to potty nappy does make the nappy bulky on a small baby and the perception of difficulty may also restrict the number of people prepared to change your baby`s nappy. This popper adaptation on the Teddy is EXCLUSIVE to The Nappy Lady and cannot be bought elsewhere.
Teddy nappies are extremely soft and fluffy and made from Microfibre. Microfibre is a synthetic 100% polyester fabric which is designed in such a way as to be very absorbent but extremely quick-drying - I do not exaggerate when I say that the nappy is practically dry when it comes out of the washing machine. Lots of people worry when they read it's polyester but Teddys are 3 degrees cooler than disposable nappies, antibacterial, stay super soft and are quick drying - can you see why we love them!
The Teddy nappy fabric always stays soft even in hard water areas. These nappies are ideal when you don`t have a tumble dryer or have limited drying facilities.
Each nappy comes with a loose daytime booster. The booster is separate to speed drying further but also to allow the nappy to be made slimmer if required.
The nappies have long wings which you are able to overlap and fasten with the Aplix. This makes the Teddy very good for skinny and chubby babies. There are fold back laundry tabs on the wings to prevent aplix hooks sticking to other nappies in the wash; this makes sorting your nappy washing much quicker. If you always remember to fold the tabs back, the aplix will last a very long time.
The nappies comes in two sizes and Aplix fastening only with poppers to alter the length:
Size 1: 7-22lbs
Size 2: 18-35lbs (can be adapted for birth to potty for use from 10lbs)
