Boys & tummy sleepers need more absorbency at the front. These examples are to use the nappy on the full size setting. Snap the long insert into the snaps at the front of the nappy .Fold the long insert in 3, and place so the 3 layers are sitting from the middle to front of the nappy. If you want additional boosting, snap the shorter booster into the back of the nappy & lay it over or under the 3 layers at the front.
FOR GIRLS OR BACK SLEEPERS.
This is using the nappy on the full size setting. Snap the long insert into the back snaps. Bring the long insert forward to the front snaps, then fold it back so the end of the insert sits in line with the back snaps. For additional boosting snap the short insert into the front snaps and lay over (or under the long insert).
*** Please keep in mind there is no right or wrong way to fold the inserts. Try a few different combination to see what works for your baby. You can use both or just one insert, two long, two short for example.
*** For the new-born/smaller size settings, you will need to snap the long inserts into the back snaps as front snaps are used to fasten nappy when folded down.
Night Nappy Option: They offer fantastic absorbency for day-time use, and can successfully be used overnight on average-heavy wetters when teamed with a night booster (or 2 if required) and Wool nappy cover.
If line-drying, after some time they may feel 'stiff' when you bring them in off the clothesline. We compare them to the feeling of a pair of denim jeans that has been line dried. A short tumble in the drier to finish off, or a manual scrunch by hand will soften them up before baby wears them, and of course, baby's own body heat will also soften the nappies whilst being worn. It is normal for natural fibres to dry somewhat stiffer than pure synthetic fibres when line-dried.
