All about our nappies

We use a really trim, simple One-Size-Fits-Most AIO/Pocket design across our range of minky, cotton prints and fabrite PUL nappies. They’re ideal for novice cloth nappy users, daycare and busy parents because there are no inserts to lose, they dry quickly and they work well.

Both the minky and cotton prints nappies have a hidden, seperate layer of waterproof PUL (polyurethane laminate) between the outer fabric and suedecloth, whilst in the PUL nappies the polyurethane laminate is bonded to the fabric. Having a waterproof layer built into the nappy eliminates the need for a cover, making them just as convenient as a disposable.

Our nappy’s simplicity and ease of use is due a flip-in flip-out insert which is sewn in at the back of the nappy only (or rather to the nappy shell), so it can be easily pulled out for washing and drying, but remains attached so the inconvenience of a lost or misplaced insert is no longer a problem. It is simply pulled back into the pocket once dry and the nappy is ready for use again.

This insert is fully adjustable in length with the use of snaps and consists of a 5 layer microfibre/bamboo combo, making it great for daytime use and naps. Extra absorbancy can be added into the pocket for heavy wetters or night time (bi-fold bamboo inserts are available seperately in store).

One of the most important points we were keen to address with our nappy was reducing drying times, as some fully sewn in all-in-ones can take two days to dry in inclement weather or require extra drying in the clothes dryer (only adding to our carbon footprint). Our insert allows for much quicker drying as it is pulled out the nappy and has the added benefit of being seperated into two layers, so you aren’t trying to dry one large, many layered insert.

It may also be of interest to you that Sewy Joeys are proudly Australian designed, owned and made- no sweat shops, no child labour and no offshore outsourcing meaning your dollars stay here in our country and economy!
