The Baba + Boo pocket nappy is waterproof, and features a popper fastening which makes the nappy secure and easy to put on. Most babies are comfortable in the Baba + Boo one size pocket nappies from about 6-8 weeks or 10lb, and they continue to fit right through to potty training.
One size pocket nappies are also known as birth-to-potty nappies, but in reality most newborns are simply too small to get a good fit which can lead to leaks. If you would like to use cloth nappies from birth, you may prefer to try the Baba + Boo reusable newborn nappies (which fit from about 5lb to 6 months old).
Each Baba + Boo pocket nappy comes fitted with two bamboo mix boosters for maximum absorbency, and the nappy features a pocket at the back allowing you to fit in the absorbent nappy inserts.
Getting the level of boosting right is important with pocket nappies. When your baby is small, you will normally only need to use one insert, which should last up to about four hours during the day. Once your baby starts to grow and you find the nappy is not lasting as long, it's time to add the other insert for extra absorbency. A light wetter may only need one booster, most will need two and possibly three for overnight.
You may also choose to use a nappy liner. This sits between the nappy and baby’s bottom to catch any solids and keep wetness away from baby’s skin. Liners are not essential but many parents find they make changes easier.
Our why to buy? On average, a baby's nappy is changed 6 times a day. If disposable nappies are used, that's 42 nappies a week, or more than 2000 nappies per year all going to landfill! Reusable nappies are a fantastic sustainable option and are a better for the environment. Even a small change, makes a difference.
'If only 20% of babies using disposable nappies switched to reusables, the amount of waste that could be prevented in the EU 28 countries would be more than 1 million tonnes each year.'
Baba + Boo pocket nappies include a waterproof lining, a gusset which helps to keep mess inside the nappy, a front popper system and are completely free of nasties.

Care for your nappies by following these easy steps:
Pre-washing before use helps increase the absorbency of your nappies. Follow the washing instructions below and repeat up to three times. You don't need to dry your nappies between pre-washes.
After use, knock any solids into the toilet (or remove the biodegradable liner if you have used one). Put the used nappy in the nappy bucket until wash day.
It can help to put the nappies on a cold rinse before washing as this ensures all the solids have been washed away before the washing cycle.
Your nappies can be washed at 60°C, although many parents find 40°C is sufficient.
Use your usual detergent. Baba + Boo nappies are designed to fit in with you, not the other way around!
Don't use any fabric conditioner or bleaching agents.
Your nappies are best dried naturally, although you can put them on a low setting in the tumble dryer. Natural is best for your nappies and the planet too!
Do be careful if they have been near heat such as the tumble dryer or radiator and don't stuff the inserts back in straight away. The heat can weaken the elastic and cause it to snap.
If you do need to use barrier/nappy rash cream, ensure you use a liner.
