Cloth Nappies

Why Fitted Nappies Are the Perfect Night Solution for Heavy Wetters

Why Fitted Nappies Are the Perfect Night Solution for Heavy Wetters - Mimi & Co

Fitted modern cloth nappies are a type of reusable diaper designed to offer maximum absorbency and comfort for babies. Unlike traditional flat or preflat cloth nappies, fitted nappies are shaped to fit snugly around a baby’s body, similar to a disposable diaper, but they are made entirely from absorbent fabric. These nappies typically feature an elastic waistband and leg openings to provide a secure and leak-proof fit. 

Here’s why fitted nappies excel as the perfect night solution for heavy wetters:

  • Shape and Fit: Designed to fit the contours of a baby’s body, they provide a snug and secure fit, reducing the risk of leaks.

  • Elasticised Edges: Elastic around the legs and waist helps to contain messes and ensure a better fit.

  • Multiple Layers: Often constructed with multiple layers of absorbent material, such as cotton, bamboo, or hemp, which can hold a significant amount of liquid.

  • Fasteners: Typically secured with snaps or Velcro, making them easy to put on and adjust as needed.

  • No Waterproof Outer Layer: Unlike all-in-one or pocket nappies, fitted nappies do not have a waterproof outer shell. This means they need to be used with a separate waterproof cover, such as a PUL (polyurethane laminate) or wool cover, to prevent leaks.

  • Versatility: Suitable for both daytime and nighttime use, although they are particularly popular for overnight due to their high absorbency.

Fitted nappies are an excellent choice for parents seeking an effective and eco-friendly diapering solution, especially for heavy wetters or overnight use. They provide superior absorbency and comfort while being reusable and environmentally friendly.
