Kit & Kin Eco Friendly Reusable Cloth Nappy One-Size All-in-One Zebra
Our summary: Kit and Kin are new to cloth nappies but judging by their attention to detail and quality of their disposable eco nappies, we are very excited they have decided to make these! Version 1 was launched with some teething issues which were quickly rectified to bring you this updated version.
The Kit and Kin cloth nappy is made from sustainable & plant-based materials that are super cute and absorbent with a recycled polyester outer to help clean up landfills, and the softest plant based materials on the inside next to your babies skin. It has a comfy adjustable waist and poppers so it fits from newborn to potty training time. an all-in-one nappy, with a double gusset.
The core is made entirely with soft, natural fabrics - so your baby’s bottom only comes into contact with plant-based materials. Hemp and TENCEL™ , a material derived from sustainable tree pulp, are kind on delicate skin and up to 50% more absorbent than cotton. The inner layer of Tencel and hemp pulls out for easy washing and drying. There is space to add extra inserts to make it even more absorbent and the double gusset helps prevent leaks. The adjustable hook and loop tabs around the waist as well as poppers means you can adapt the size of the nappy to fit your baby as they grow.
How to fit the nappy:
The nappy should sit snug around your baby’s torso and thighs. Double check it’s not too tight by placing two fingers inside the waistline. When putting the nappy on, place the back part nice and low so that you can pull the front up as much as possible before fastening the hook and loop tabs. This is important because you want as much of the absorbent lining to play with at the front as possible. For smaller babies, the front should rise high enough to cover the belly button. Please use the poppers to adjust for the best fit. Also make sure the leg cuffs are tucked into your baby’s leg creases.
How and when to use extra boosters:
Boosters are a great way of adding extra absorbency to the nappy if required during the day or at night. Place them inside the nappy on top of the absorbent lining. Our boosters are super slim, yet super thirsty, so you can even fold them or add two at a time. If your baby is a boy, use them to add extra absorbency to the front of the nappy, for girls add them closer to the middle. During the night, using boosters is particularly important as they offer the absorbency required for this prolonged period of use. If your baby drinks a lot before bedtime, we even recommend using two boosters.
Every nappy rescues two plastic bottles from landfill, and keeps your baby’s bottom dry and comfy for up to 12 hours thanks to the super absorbent and gentle 100% naturally-derived core.
One size fits all with handy poppers and adjustable waist to fit to your baby’s shape as they grow.
We recommend washing your nappy 1-3 times prior to use. This will increase its absorbency. Recommended for machine washing at 40 degrees with a non-bio powder as this will protect the longevity of the nappy and our planet. However, you can also wash at 60 if you wish - for example if your baby has been unwell. Always ensure you set the machine to a long cycle.
Avoid washing with dark colours. Wash before use and between uses, and ensure the hook and loop tabs are fastened before washing to prevent snagging and damage. Do not iron or bleach. Fabric softener or conditioner can reduce the absorbency of the nappy so do not use these. We recommend always air drying with the inner towel pulled out, but if you wish to tumble dry your nappies ensure this is done on a cool setting only - however do bear in mind that tumble drying may shorten the lifespan of the nappy.
External lining: 100% recycled polyester
