Designer Bums Bamboo Insert Sets, feature a convenient hour-glass shape with an extra-long insert that can be folded into three for targeted absorbency and a smaller insert to place on top as a booster when even more absorbency is required or as the child grows. The insert sets include two inserts each made of 3 layers of the most absorbent, premium bamboo fleece available. Bamboo fleece is a natural fibre that is not only super absorbent but also has hypoallergenic properties so is perfect for nappy use and kind to sensitive skin.
Instructions For Use
For a new baby, you will only need to use the small insert or the large folded in half - simply snap the front of the nappy down to the smallest size and lay the inserts on top of the shell or slide the insert into the pocket opening and fasten the nappy on baby. For a larger baby you will need to use both. Before inserting into the pocket opening, simply fold over the top end of the longer insert so that it becomes the same length as the small insert. Lay the smaller one on top, hold them together in place with one hand, open the pocket of the nappy with the other and stuff the inserts down into the pocket until your hand reaches the other end of the nappy.
Bamboo Insert Care Instructions
As Bamboo is a natural fabric, you will need to pre-wash any natural fibered fabric in hot to soften fibres and add thickness for maximum absorbency before use. Our recommendation for best results Soak new inserts in cold or warm water overnight and then wash insert sets separately a minimum x 3 times before use to maximise absorbency and remove loose, fluffy bamboo fibres. Please note that absorbency will continue to build and reach peak at approx. 8 washes and will not last long stretches before fully prepped, however use as normal in the meantime, knowing they will continue to increase.
For best results wash in warm to hot, with a hot tumble dry (wash, dry, wash again, then dry again). Natural fibres may shed, fluff and shrink slightly after being tumble dried initially. Inserts can be washed and dried for future washes on hot/warm/cold. Do not use fabric softener, oil based products or chlorine bleach which may damage or coat the natural fibres and impact absorbency. Leaving inserts soaking in liquids or soiled for consecutive days may damage the natural fibres and cause deterioration and build-up.
