A really absorbent hard-wearing nappy - size 1 and 2 only
Littlelamb organic cotton nappies are beautifullly soft and extremely absorbent. They are also very reasonably priced. This is the organic cotton version of Littlelambs fitted nappies and is very nearly as absorbent as the bamboo ones but a more natural, less processed fabric. They are slightly creamier in colour than the bamboo ones. They must be worn with a waterproof wrap on top.
Each nappy comes with a double layer cotton booster to increase absorbency further. This is removable in the size 1 nappy so the nappy can be made slimmer for a small baby but the booster is attached in the size 2 and 3. The Littlelamb organic cotton nappy is perfect as a night time nappy when used with an additional booster. They fasten with Velcro tabs making them easy to use and the tabs can cross over at the waist so the nappy can be made a tighter fit for a smaller baby.
Littlelamb cotton nappies are incredibly absorbent but it also an extremely SLOW drying nappy so a lot of people keep them for night-time use and have a quicker drying but less absorbent pocket style nappy for daytime use. Remember to fold the laundry tabs over to secure them before the nappy goes into the bucket or washing machine. This prevents the Velcro picking up fluff in the washing machine and makes it longer lasting - and also stops the nappies all joining together in the wash.
Littlelamb fitted nappies come in three sizes but the vast majority of children will only need the first 2 sizes. Chubby babies will need a bigger size than tall slim babies of the same weight. A bigger size of nappy can be helpful to give extra absorbency and allow room for extra boosters for a heavy wetter or a baby who sleeps through the night.
Size 1 fits from 7 to 18lbs - a neat fit on a little baby and not bulky like a one-size nappy.
Size 2 from about 18 to 35lbs - big enough for plenty of bedtime boosters.
