The Accessories

Wet Bags
Used to store dirty nappies while out and about, at day care etc. The mini wet bag can be used to store clean but wet cloth wipes for use while out and about. The XL wet bag is very big and can also be used as a pail liner if you like.

– Standard Wet Bag
– Nappy Pod
– XL Wet Bag
– Mini Wet Bag

Nappy Liners

Fleece liners:
These are made from a non absorbent fabric. They catch poop, protect your nappies from stains and keep your baby’s bum feeling dry. It is much easier to clean poop off a fleece liner than off the nappy. Tip: make or buy large/wide liners that are wider than a nappy, they can stick out the sides which will keep them in place and soften the elastics around your baby’s legs.

Disposable liners:
These are used to catch poop. They make it easier to dispose of the poo and keep it off your nappy. The problem with these is that they can block your plumbing and throwing them in a plastic bag is not environmentally friendly and makes your rubbish bin smell!

Pail Liners
These are used to line your dry bucket/basket if you want to minimize handling your dirty nappies and want to keep your bucket or basket clean.

Snappi’s

Used to secure snapless fitteds, prefolds, contours and flats.
