Our Cloth Nappy Fit Guide
1. Snap in or pocket
Click-in your inserts either onto the top of the nappy or inside the pocket depending on your preference. Insert 1 is an Anchor Insert designed to be used on its own folded under at the end for extra absobency. Pair Anchor Insert 1 with the Hourglass insert 2 for maximum day time absorbency. For night time or for heavy wetters also add our 3 layer Tri-fold Insert giving 9 more absorbent layers.
2. Find your fit
Lay baby on the open nappy with the back of the nappy sitting above the hips, bring the wings from the back over to meet the waist snaps.
Try fitting the top row of snaps a little tighter around the tummy and the second row of snaps a little looser if baby has larger thighs or a looser fit for a bigger belly and tighter on the second row of snaps for thinner thighs.
If you feel material is “sagging” or “gaping” in the crotch try using the rise snaps to shorten the nappy for a trimmer fit.
3. Check it
Ensure baby is comfortable by checking the tummy fit and maintain a two finger gap so baby is still comfortable when sitting. Arrange the gussets/elastics into babys natural undie crease. You may notice a little gaping around the tummy area at times when baby is not sitting and their tummy is flat, this is considered normal and gives baby room to bend.
Love my Pekpi nappies and the Nomad colour is my favourite! The double gusset is perfect, and the inserts are great and the edges stay flat when washed. After trialling a few brands I’ll definitely be a return customer.
