What is a Two Part Cloth Nappy and How do I use one?

All cloth nappies are made up of two components:

  • An absorbent part
  • A waterproof or water resistant part

As the name may suggest in a Two Part  cloth nappy these components are separate entities. They are not attached to each other in any way.

The absorbent part can be either a ‘flat’ nappy such as a Terry square, Prefold or a simple long absorbent soaker . Or it can be a ‘fitted’ nappy which is shaped to fit the baby and fastens together, coming in various sizes.  Another possibility is a disposable soaker.

Over the top, in order to contain the absorbent part and stop clothes getting wet you need a ‘wrap’ or ‘cover’. These are usually made from PUL (a waterproof material), shaped, size adjustable and fastened by hook and loop or snaps. There are also fleece and wool covers available, again in a shaped style or as a pull-up.

Depending on the combination you use you will either put your absorbent part on first followed by the cover or you will lay your absorbent part on top of the gusset part of the cover and put on baby together.

The Two Part cloth nappy combination is usually regarded as best for containment and maximum absorbency. You can boost the absorbency without compromising on the fit  by adding more layers beneath the wrap.

The wrap or cover will dry faster than the absorbent part meaning that you can use again sooner and therefore need less. They are often the cheapest system to buy.

They do require a little more time to use which can be a negative. A Two Part system is very popular for night time use or for children with a larger output.

What is a Pocket Cloth Nappy and How do I use one?

All cloth nappies are made up of two components:

  • An absorbent part
  • A waterproof or water resistant part

In a pocket cloth nappy those components are separate items. The waterproof part is a shell with an inner layer usually made of fleece sewn inside leaving one or both ends open to create a pocket. Inside the pocket you put your absorbent inserts.

Each pocket will be bought with one or more inserts. You can use one, two or more inserts in the pocket in a variety of materials to create the required absorbency for your child.

The pocket shell and inserts are dried separately, with the shell drying much faster. You can therefore use it again sooner if you have spare inserts. There is a small amount of preparation needed for each use in putting the inserts into the pocket, for some this is an annoyance. However, once prepared, when you put them on they are very simple.

You will find pocket nappies in hook and loop or snap closure and in all sizes.

What is a Nappy Liner?

When using cloth nappies some people prefer to use a nappy liner. This is a thin, non-absorbent piece of material that lays inside the nappy closest to the bottom. It has several purposes:

  • Catching poo
  • Protecting the nappy from stains
  • Keeping moisture away from the skin (fleece liners only)

There are two main types of nappy liner: Disposable and Reuseable. Disposable liners come on a roll and are commonly made from either bamboo or cornstarch. They are torn off the roll, placed inside the nappy and then removed and disposed off after a nappy change. They must be disposed of either in the general waste bin or composted, never flushed.

Reuseable liners are usually made from microfleece although other kinds do exist (silk for example). They have the additional function that when placed next to skin they quickly ‘wick’ moisture away and into the absorbent fabric beneath. They are soft to the touch which can be appealing.

After a wet change they should be left inside the nappy and washed all together. They air dry incredibly quickly. When dealing with a dirty change, post weaning, an effort should be made to deposit as much faeces as possible into the toilet. Various methods exist including holding under the flush and scraping off. Then the liner can be stored and washed with the nappy.

Reuseable liners are available in various sizes to suit the size of child and nappy and vary in texture across brands.

How does Cloth Nappy Sizing work?

When buying a cloth nappy it’s important to check the  guidelines to make sure it will fit your child. However,  Cloth Nappy Sizing can be confusing when various brands use different terminology.

You will most commonly come across the phrase ‘Birth to Potty’ this may also be referred to as ‘One Size’. These nappies will be size adjustable most often using snaps on the front of the nappy to make it smaller and bigger. It covers the widest range of sizes from around 4.5kg to 16kg or 10lbs to 35lbs.

The majority of babies are born smaller than this and while ‘Birth to Potty’ is called this,  for most a smaller size is needed for the first few weeks. This is called ‘Newborn’ and tends to fit babies from 2kg to 5.5kgs or 4.5lbs to 12lbs.

Some manufacturers believe that a better fit and therefore greater comfort and less possibility of leaks and other problems can be achieved if the  cloth nappy sizing is broken down into more, smaller ranges. You may find these described as Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large or 1, 2 and 3. Unfortunately these two methods aren’t exactly equatable.

  • Small is usually interchangeable with Newborn: Up to 5 or 6kg/11 or 12lbs
  • Medium: Up to 10kg/22lbs
  • Large: Up to 13kg/28lbs
  • Extra Large: 12kg/26.5lbs and above.

 

  • Size 1 is usually a rough bridge between Newborn and Birth to Potty: 3-9ks/7-20lbs
  • Size 2: 9-16kgs/20-35lbs (A size 2 is often appropriate for a large portion of the ‘Birth to Potty’ size range.
  • Size 3: 16kgs/35lbs and above.

Extra Large and Size 3 are found in nappies that are appropriate for night time or maximum absorbency use as most children will be out of nappies or needing considerable absorbency before they hit this weight range.

Certain brands manufacture nappies that are larger than this to suit older children, teens and adults.

What is an All In One Cloth Nappy and How do I use it?

All cloth nappies are made up of two components.

  • An absorbent part
  • A waterproof or water resistant part

In the case of an All In One nappy both of those parts are permanently attached or sewn together. You put them on as one piece, wash them as one piece and dry them as one piece. You can see that in this picture of the absorbent and waterproof parts that they are sewn together. Some have absorbent parts that are removeable by snaps but even when removed there is still a complete nappy system remaining.

In some All In One nappies, like this one, the absorbent part is visible and lays on top, in others it sits inside under a lining. In most, they fold out to increase  the drying speed. You will find All in One’s in both hook and loop and snap closure and in all sizes.

These nappies are most simple and easiest to use type of cloth nappy, popular with child care providers.  Disadvantages include length of drying time, the precision and care needed when fitting and possibly less scope for customisation and boosting.

Hook and Loop or Snap Fastening on your Cloth Nappy?

The majority of nappies fasten using with either Hook and Loop (the proper term for the generic use of ‘velcro’) or Snaps. Exceptions are some fitted nappies that use a ‘nappy nippa’ (a stretchy Y shape with hooks on 3 points) and Pull Up styles, either as a whole nappy or in cover form.

                   Some brands offer a choice in the same style but most stick with one type of fastening or other. It may be a factor in deciding if a nappy is for you or it may not matter at all.

Hook and Loop closure often allow for more precision fit, as the options are not restricted to the position and spacing of the snaps. It’s common for child care providers and the less experienced user to prefer these for ease of use. It’s also worth mentioning that hook and loop can be preferable for anyone changing nappies that has hand mobility issues as snaps can sometimes be tricky and there are a few of them to do at each change.

Hook and Loop fastening needs protecting during washing and drying to prevent ripping and attracting fluff. Cloth Nappy users often find that older babies and toddlers can often undo a hook and loop fastening themselves which understandably can cause problems. A Snap fastening can present as a ‘tidier’ nappy and requires less care, possibly extending the life of a nappy. They are also easier to replace.

Nappy Materials… What Do They All Mean?

Just when you think you have your head around the different types of nappies you start hearing words like Microfibre, Bamboo, Hemp and PUL and it feels like you are back to square one.

The different types of materials used have various properties which determine how the nappy behaves. This may mean they absorb quickly, dry fast, hold a lot of liquid etc and these are the factors that determine whether the nappy is suited to your needs. Once you understand the different materials it is so much easier to work out what to use on your baby.

We will go through the main materials and then look at some case studies which exemplify how they can be used to their, and your, best advantage. Let’s start from the outside:

PUL (Poly Urethane Laminate)

This material is used as the waterproof element of most cloth nappies. On the outer of an All In One, All In Two and Pocket nappy and the entirety of a waterproof wrap or cover. PUL is an extremely useful fabric being breathable, stretchy, quick to dry, creaseproof, stainproof and crucially for nappies, waterproof.

It is made by laminating, using heat, pressure and adhesive, a thin polyester fabric to a very thin film of polyurethane. If not cared for a a reverse process happens called ‘delamination’, the fabric and polyurethane become separate and therefore no longer waterproof.

One side of the PUL is brighter and softer (being the polyester side) and the other duller and a little sticky to the touch. For this reason in most nappy systems it doesn’t touch the baby, although is harmless if it does. The common material used to line nappies and be closest to the baby’s skin is….

Fleece

Fleece is a synthetic, man-made fabric and can be derived from either virgin or recycled plastic. The fibres of polyester are woven together in such a way to create a light, breathable fabric, perfect for contact with delicate skin. This weave is the reason why fleece is also commonly found as a separate liner.

When used as a liner it picks up liquid and moves it away from the source, spreading it out and passing it through to the other side to be absorbed or evaporated. If you want to be fancy this process is called ‘Capillarity’. Due to this it obviously dries very quickly, not increasing drying time as the lining of an All In One nappy and combining with PUL in a Pocket nappy to make a very quick drying item. You will also find fleece wraps or covers used over an absorbent nappy.

Moving on to the most common absorbent materials, starting with

Microfibre

This is another synthetic material made from polyester. We learn a lot about the nature of this material from the name, the fibres of this material are tiny and there are lots of them. Larger fibres are split into tiny ones and it is the combination of the surface area created and the the space between them that causes microfibre to absorb liquid very quickly. You can feel the texture of the material when you touch it as the fibres grab at any imperfections on your skin. This and the way microfibre draws moisture into itself is the reason it is not recommended to have microfibre in direct contact with skin for prolonged periods.

Because microfibre holds liquid between it’s fibres that liquid can easily be forced back out again, like squeezing a sponge. It does, however, mean  that the liquid can begin to be squeezed out of a nappy while it is still on the baby. This is what people mean when they talk about ‘compression leaks’. the plus point to this is that microfibre dries very quickly.

Cotton

Cotton is a natural fibre and can therefore absorb liquid INSIDE it’s cells. To simplify the science, cotton has naturally occuring cellulose which has a negative charge. It attracts slightly positive water molecules, bonds together and stores the liquid inside the ‘lumen’ or empty space in the middle of each cotton fibre. This makes cotton a highly absorbent material. Because liquid is stored inside the fibres it does take longer to dry than synthetic materials.

Cotton has the same capillarity action as fleece, spreading the liquid throughout the material meaning that it can continue to absorb in the same area. The use of cotton in cloth nappies is extremely useful in preventing ‘flooding’ and consequent leaks where another material cannot absorb fast enough.

This is probably a good point to mention that with each material there are various environmental and/or ethical factors present at various points of their growth and manufacture, cotton is well known for this. While these factors may influence our choice of nappy, the conversation is complex and far reaching. A topic to return to in the future. However, it is one of the reasons that in recent times where cotton would be used it is being replaced by

Hemp

Similar to cotton in its structure and natural cellulose but with coarser, longer fibres resulting in a stronger, more absorbent and more durable fabric. Adding a hemp booster to a nappy, in particular a night nappy, can be a simple way to increase absorption speed and volume.

Although, like cotton, it gets softer the more it is used it can be rough, for this reason when we find hemp in cloth nappies it is usually a blend with cotton. The wear, wash and dry of natural material makes them less dense, increasing the spaces where liquid can be stored inside and in between the fibres. This is why we prewash and why you find excellent ‘work horse’ nappies that are years old and extremely absorbent.

Bamboo

The fabric we refer to as bamboo is properly called viscose rayon. It used to be called ‘artificial silk’ and when it comes to softness bamboo really appeals to be worn next to the skin of babies and is easily identifiable by it’s sheen. The cellulose in the bamboo is extracted and reformed into the fabric we love to use in cloth nappies. The fibres themselves, while having the same gaps and holes inside the fibres and cracks and grooves on the surface as cotton and hemp, are fine and sleeker. This is why bamboo absorbs the slowest of the commonly used materials in cloth nappies. 

As liquid is stored inside the fibres it takes longer to dry a bamboo nappy than for example a microfibre one. Bamboo rayon fibres are fine and short, it is common to find bamboo blends because the addition of cotton for example makes for a stronger fabric.

A Case Study:

An 18 month old baby who has always worn an all in one nappy with a bamboo absorbent core with no problems suddenly starts experiencing leaks within half an hour of a nappy change. 

Having checked the PUL of the nappy for any signs of delamination or holes an initial response might be to add more bamboo to increase the absorbency level. However, given the time frame of the leak it is unlikely that the child’s output has increased in volume over time but more likely that the volume of each wee is more. Toddlers can start to hold their urine for a little while increasing the pressure and volume of a single wee. A bamboo based nappy will hold a lot and wouldn’t struggle with this volume, but we know that it absorbs slowly so the liquid will run to any escape points such as the seams of the nappy before the bamboo has had time to absorb all the liquid. The best solution here would be to add a cotton or hemp booster inside the nappy. Microfibre may work on a younger baby that is less mobile and likely to compress the nappy. By adding it inside the nappy the faster absorbing material can quickly manage the liquid giving time for it to  to spread throughout the absorbent parts of the nappy and be stored. This means that there is still capacity for more output so an immediate change isn’t needed.

A Case Study

A 3 month old baby has been wearing a 2 part, microfibre based nappy system which until now has been excellent at containing liquid poo and the frequent small wees she has been having. They have been changing regularly day and night. Now the little one is sleeping longer at night they require something more absorbent to last longer.

Two Part nappies are excellent and quite often the best solution over night. There is twice the protection at the leg and waist against leaks. These parents will want to consider a bamboo nappy for maximum over night capacity. They may want to line it with a fleece liner to help keep the bottom feeling dry by wicking the moisture away. Over the nappy they can continue to use their PUL wrap. Over time depending on the child they may want to add additional boosting of more bamboo or hemp either inside the nappy or between nappy and wrap.

Cloth Nappies should be simple to use, by understanding the components of them we have more chance of selecting an appropriate nappy and much more chance of successful  and sustainable use. Whether it’s one a day or full time use you are aiming for it all makes a difference to you, to baby and to the environment.

Top Tips For Using Cloth Nappies From Birth

Editor: Keep tuned for a giveaway at the end of the article

I should start by saying you absolutely should feel no pressure to do this. Even if you intend on using reusables very soon, it’s more than OK to not start straight away, or change your mind when baby arrives.
Also a quick note to say that you are ‘allowed’ to use reusable nappies in hospital. I would suggest being mindful of their hygiene regulations, keep everything neat, used nappies in a wet bag and get visitors to take them home regularly if you are staying in more than 12 hours or so. Ultimately it is your baby, your choice.

1. Show your midwife! Pictures/diagram

In my post baby bliss a very keen midwife confidently picked up the nappy system I had ready (a shaped Terry and wrap) and put them on baby and got him dressed. I didn’t think to check but when I went to change him the wrap was on backwards! I think especially if you expect various people to be doing their bit in the first few days and weeks a few pictures of what they are aiming for would be really handy

2. Be prepared for the meconium! Do not get it in your eye!

If you are a first time parent or it’s been a while you may have forgotten the joys of that sticky, black, tar-like poo known as meconium. It’s babys first few poos and is pretty hard to clean off that tiny little bottom. I had my first boy recently, no one told me about the wrinkles! Anyway, although it looks odd it comes right out in the wash so no need to do anything different with it or use disposables unless you want to.
Another top tip… don’t be like my husband and not realise you have meconium on your finger and then scratch your eye!

3. Have your cloth wipes wet ready!! Lots!

With meconium, the in between stuff or the Korma, cloth wipes do a much better job of cleaning up than disposable wipes. You will probably use 1 or 2 cloth wipes to 5 disposables. Because newborns poo A LOT it makes sense to either have a pile pre moistened in a container or a spray bottle to hand with which to wet bottom or wipe as you go. No need to use any fancy solution, water is fine.

4. Take the opportunity to try a few different types.

Newborns don’t try to leg it or kick you when you are changing them so take the opportunity to try a few different nappy systems! You won’t need huge amounts of absorbency in the first few weeks so work on your fit technique, try snaps and Velcro, all in ones and 2 parters to work out what you prefer to use. You are changing nappies so often that if one doesn’t work out for you it doesn’t matter too much.

5. Cord……tie and low rise, trim nappies.

Look for nappies that are low rise or have a popper down part at the front to avoid any rubbing on the cord stump. We prefer to use a cord tie rather than a clamp also but that is personal choice.

6. It will wash out

Don’t panic! Even the worst bottom explosions wash right out . There is no need to do anything special wash wise, just rinse cycle and a 60 degree long wash will do the trick. Cloth nappies have excellent containment so you shouldn’t expect too many leaks either. Any stains will also disappear in sunlight.

7. Expect to change during the night

Newborns still needs changing during the night at least once. Their skin is still getting used to life earth side and can be sensitive. They will also be feeding throughout the night so therefore will have an output too. This means at least initially you don’t need to worry about night nappies or maximising absorbency, just use what you use in the day time.

8. Keep everything to hand

If you are reading this in the weeks before baby arrives when you have an insatiable desire to organise and prepare I would recommend creating 2 or 3 areas in the house that have everything you need to hand  in a bag or basket  or box. Clean nappies, somewhere to put used nappies, wipes, change mat. At least in the beginning when they are tiny and fragile it can feel like you don’t have enough hands and they are liable to pee during change time (did I mention I had just had a boy?????) having everything to hand will make your life much easier.

9. Take pictures

You will thank yourself when you have a big boisterous toddler for taking pictures of your newborn cloth bums. Trust me. Maybe don’t look at them though unless you want your ovaries to start pinging!

10. No pressure

Have fun, enjoy it! If it’s too much one day, don’t stress! You are doing a wonderful thing so give your self a pat on the back but don’t let cloth bumming be a burden on your shoulders. You’ll find tricks and hacks along the way but at least for the first few weeks be kind to yourself 🙂

Cloth Nappy FAQ

Welcome to Real Nappy Week 2018 with Yes Bébé. If you’ve decided to take the leap into using reusable nappies but are a bit confused, here you will find a Q&A for any questions you might have.

1.       Q: How do I know which nappies to get?

A: There are a few options for you to figure this out. You could;

a)       Use a nappy library www.uknappynetwork.org/map they have local volunteers to help you through every step of starting using reusables. You can loan them to try at home, attend demo sessions and receive personalised advice.

b)      Buy a few types to try out. Sometimes people like different types for different situations e.g. at home, at nursery or out and about. The preloved market is great too, we have our own B/S/T page which you can find here

c)       Get personalised advice via our questionnaire which you can find here or email nappies@yesbebe.co.uk

2.       Q: Do they smell?

A: Just like disposable nappies, you can smell the poo and wee but the nappies themselves shouldn’t smell. Once clean your nappies should smell of nothing. Smelling heavily of fragrance or detergent will negatively affect absorbency and may irritate your little ones bottom as it is a sign you’ve used too much detergent or one with unnecessary chemicals.

3.       Q: What do I do with the poo?

A: Milk poo: nothing. Let the machine deal with it. Always make sure to do a rinse cycle before the main wash cycle.

Weaning poo: Use a fleece liner in the nappy and try and get as much off as you can. Popular techniques include, holding the liner in the flush in the toilet, spraying with a shower head attachment and a ‘poo spoon/ knife’ scraper.

Solid poo: flick it off the liner/nappy and flush.     

4.       Q: Where do I put the dirty nappies?

A: You can store them in a lidded bucket or a wet bag until you wash them, you won’t be able to smell them through the lid or the bag.

5.       Q: Do they come clean?

A: Absolutely! If you follow number 6 down below.

6.       Q: How do I wash them?

A: Wash your nappies every 2-3 days. Be mindful of specific instructions from your manufacturer, following these will protect your warranty.

You want a 2/3 + full machine. Begin with a rinse cycle or a very short wash cycle (around 15 minutes). This will get rid of any remaining poo and make the load heavier so the machine adds extra water (which gives a better wash in modern eco machines). Add a FULL DOSE of your detergent for heavily soiled items. You’ll find this on your box of detergent, pay attention to drum size and water hardness.

Select a long cycle on 40 or 60 (dependent on warranty and personal preference) usually about 3 hours. Have a peek towards the end of the rinse part of the wash when you are starting out to check there are no bubbles left if you are worried about using too much detergent. If there are still a lot of bubbles you can rinse again. This is usually not necessary.

7.       Q: How do I dry them?

A: Line or air drying is best for the environment and UV lights from the sun will shift any stains. Some brands allow tumble drying. You should have no problem tumble drying cotton, hemp or microfibre. Bamboo and PUL are heat sensitive so if you MUST tumble dry use a low setting. Avoid radiator drying.

8.       Q: How many do I need?

A: If you want to use cloth nappies full time you will need enough to have some clean and ready to use, some dirty and waiting to be washed and some washing/drying. Bare in mind newborns will go through more nappies. If you base it on 10 a day and wash every other day that’s around 30 nappies. You don’t want to run out if you get behind on washing so maybe 35. Using 2 part nappies will mean you can reuse the outer part so you won’t need as many of those as the inner absorbent part.

For an older baby in nappies 20-25 should be plenty. However, you don’t have to buy them all at once. Most people build up their collection over time.

9.       Q: Does it matter if I don’t use them all the time?

A: You can use cloth part time, when it’s convenient, when you have enough clean. Basically, whatever works for you.

10.   Q: Is my child too old to start using them?

A: It’s never too late! Even using one a day makes a real difference.

11.   Q: How long I go between changes?

A: During the day, it’s recommended to go no more than 3 hours between nappy changes and changing immediately after a poo. This applies during the night for newborns. You want your cloth nappies to be functional enough to last this time but it isn’t a challenge to make them last as long as possible.

12.   Q: What is a compression leak?

A: A compression leak is when absorbent parts if the nappy are squashed and releases some of the fluid the fabric fibres are holding. This can be when a nappy is over stuffed, clothes are too tight, time in a car seat or baby carrier. Microfibre is the biggest culprit for compression leaks.

13.   Q: Why are there different nappies for night time use?

A: Night nappies are specific nappies that are designed to be more absorbent without compromising fit to last the extra time you need so you don’t have to chance overnight. Many people find solutions for night time with non specific nappies particularly 2 part nappies or by adding boosters. It’s important to not compromise the fit of a nappy but boosting too much otherwise despite absorbency you will get leaks.

14.   Q: Do all nappies need inserts/boosters?

A: Inserts/boosters are an integral part of a pocket style nappy only, they are the absorbent part. They can be added to all in one nappies or 2 part systems to increase absorbency.

15.   Q: What is a pocket nappy?

A:

A pocket nappy is a system where the outer, waterproof layer has an inner layer sewn in except for one end creating a ‘pocket’. These are usually made from fleece so that there is a soft, stay dry fabric next to the bottom.

Pocket nappies tend to be sold with inserts. These can be made from a range of absorbent fabrics, microfibre, bamboo, hemp, cotton and more. You place them inside the pocket to absorb urine. They each work in slightly different ways making pocket nappies a very flexible option as you can customise to suit your needs. For example a common combination is to put one bamboo insert underneath one microfibre insert inside the pocket. The microfibre absorbs quickly but doesn’t hold much, the bamboo absorbs slowly but holds a lot. With that combination urine will be absorbed quickly and then it can pass through into the bamboo.

Pocket nappies can be sized (e.g. small, medium, large) or birth to potty/one size which means the nappy can be adjusted to change its size. This is usually in the form of ‘rise snaps’ on the front of the nappy.

16.   Q: What’s the difference between an all in one and a 2 parter?

A: An all in one nappy has all parts attached in once piece. The waterproof outer and absorbent inner are one item. Depending on design the absorbency might be hidden or it might fold or flap out. Some nappies are designed so the absorbent part is removable, these are known as all in two.

A 2 part system or nappy and wrap are where the absorbent part and waterproof part 2 totally separate items. The absorbent part might be a nappy, with fastenings and all the trimmings or it maybe as simple as a folded piece of material or soaker. The waterproof part or wrap goes over the top of this. They are usually made from PUL but also could be fleece or wool.

17.   Q: What is PUL?

A: PUL stands for Polyurethane laminate. It is material that has been made waterproof by laminating it to a thin layer of polyurethane, a plastic type polymer. This is what makes the waterproof component of your nappy.

16.   Q: Should I use fleece or disposable liners?

A: It’s personal choice or whatever you think suits you needs better. Fleece liners are washable and soft on babies bottom, they also help keep a feeling of dryness as the urine passes through. Both fleece and disposable liners catch poo. Disposable liners that have only liquid can be put straight in the bin. With the poo put it straight down the toilet. Just DO NOT flush them.

 I hope this post has answered anything you wanted to know about reusable nappies. Any further questions head over to Yes Bébé Babble  or email nappies@yesbebe.co.uk where there are plenty of people willing to help!
