Different Types of Cloth Nappy

Flats, Terries and Muslins are square sheets of fabric that are very absorbent.

Terries are usually bulkier than a Bamboo Flat and cotton muslins.

There are a number of folds you can use, and you would fasten with a nappy nippa or pin.

As they are made entirely out of absorbent material, they can feel extremely wet when removed which is normal.

Flat nappies require a wrap cover.

Pocket nappies have a waterproof outer, with a layer of stay dry material sewn on top.

This creates a pocket for you to “stuff” absorbent inserts – these can be a mix of microfibre, cotton, bamboo or hemp.

These are an affordable way to use cloth nappies in the day time, as they can be used with various absorbancy materials to suit your babies needs.

A wrap is a water-resistant cover, that you use over absorbent materials, such as a flat, terry, muslin, prefold/trifold or fitted nappy.

Our FAB wrap nappies are made from PUL.
