Motherease
 

Motherease Airflow is a popper fastening PUL (polyurethene laminate) wrap that is leak proof but refuses to compromise on breathability! The fabric is soft, durable and waterproof.

Sizes

The Motherease airflow comes in 6 sizes but most people only need 2-3 sizes birth to potty.

XS 6-12lbs (trim cut)*
Small 6-12lbs*
Medium 10-20lbs
Med/Large 20-27lbs (trimmer cut than Large)
Large 20-35lbs
XL 35lbs+

*Note that the XS/Small sizes poppers towards the front for ease of use when changing a small baby, whereas the larger sizes popper towards the back.

The Medium/Large (20-27lbs) size covers the lower end of the Large Air Flow size range (20-35lbs). This is because the Large feels very baggy when a slim child has outgrown a Medium and the Medium/Large is intended for those who like a trimmer fit. Obviously it adds an extra size of wraps in, which pushes the price up, but that might not be so important for you.

One time when the M/L wrap is a very good choice is when a child of around 15lbs switches to cloth. Instead of getting 4 medium wraps which will be quite quickly outgrown, you could opt for 2 Medium, 2 M/L and 2 Large, to bridge the gap nicely.

What's So Special about the Air Flow?

The poppers are at the legs and waist on each side, and there are a number of different settings. Because of the separate leg and waist fastening, it has excellent adjustability for the child whose legs and waist are not in perfect proportion to each other. With a Velcro wrap, if your child has thin legs but a fat waist, the wrap may have to be closed too tightly at the waist to give sufficient containment at the legs, or vice versa. This is not the case with the Air Flow wrap.

The airflow is secured with adjustable poppers at the waist and legs openings and has an air ventilation system between the poppers. This allows for maximum air circulation as baby moves, reducing the risk of bacteria by keeping the temperature of the cloth nappy down. The ventilation system makes it the most breathable PUL wrap on the market by far. You think it somehow “ought” to leak, but I can assure you it doesn’t. Very cunning design.

Another advantage of the Air Flow is that the side-positioning of the poppers makes it virtually childproof! The trouble with Velcro-fastenings, as with disposable nappies, is that your child can easily undo them - and the tougher the Velcro, the more tempting it is for them. You can almost hear them saying “Look, Mummy, a toy on my tummy...” Not all children are manic un-fasteners, but if you have one of those, you’ll find popper wraps a far less frustrating option, unless you want your child to wear dungarees on a permanent basis!

As the poppers are at the side of the wrap it is perfect for children with sensitive skin as there is no velcro to catch or snag on. For tummy sleepers there are no poppers at the front of the nappy to press into their skin either!

There are no gussets in the wrap which makes the legs holes larger than on other wraps. The legs holes of the airflow are designed to be LOOSE and not fitted snug to the skin. This is again to make the nappy more breathable but also so little legs on the move don't get chaffed. The airflow is especially good for chubby legs allowing them plenty of room.

Why does it look like "granny pants?"

It is a very baggy wrap, in comparison with Velcro-fastening wraps, and some people don’t like the “puffball” look. However, that’s one of the reasons why it is so reliable, because there is plenty of room between nappy and wrap, minimising the risk of wicking due to a bit of the nappy sticking out anywhere. That’s also one reason why it is an excellent wrap over the bulkiest of night nappies and the best wrap over traditional terry squares.
 

What nappies can the airflow be used over?

The airflow is pretty much a universal wrap and can be used over virtually every modern shaped nappy.  However because there is no gusset at the legs, the Air Flow is not suitable over prefolds or other fasten-free/ pad folded nappies .... normally. I have known people use it with pad folded prefolds successfully, but only on pretty solidly-built children, because they fill the wrap so much more! It certainly won’t work with your average or skinny child.



Washable at 60 with the nappies, you can also tumble dry it on cool, although to be honest give it a good shake and hang it over a chair, and it will be dry within a few minutes anyway.

The Air Flow wraps I have used on my children have now been in use for 9 years and I have not had a single one ever fail or break.   So reliable on both waterproofing and containment, flexible on fit, childproof, washable at 60 and can be tumble dried .... what do you mean, this wrap is not for you?!!...

Great wraps

These are the only wraps I have used so far however they seem great. I use them over terry squares and they seem to contain everything. Would recommend. I definitely prefer the popper fastening and would always look for this as it washes well and Velcro makes me cringe.

No more leaks!
Wednesday, 14 January 2015  | 

This is an excellent wrap! After experiencing a lot of wicking around the legs with the little lambs wraps I was fed up of the amount of trousers I was washing. These are so far leak proof...They even contained an epic power poo this morning. I Couldn't be happier with them! These are the only wraps you'll ever need to own!

Fantastic for nights

The airflow wrap is an absolute lifesaver. Not the best looking nappy cover, and I wouldn't personally use it in day times as it's enormous! But it covers night nappies perfectly and I've been able to decrease the amount of boosting we use as it provides such good cover all our leak issues have ended.

Love the Motherease wraps. The material is totally watertight but really flexible and the airflows are very comfortable and have a smooth fit. Using XL on my 12kg toddler at night so I can easily boost and not compromise fit.

Wouldn't use any other wrap

Ingenious shape ensures nappy is always covered and containement is amazing. Well made and durable. Poppers are much better than velcro for durability and to avoid them sticking together in the wash. I think some people think velcro gives a better fit but I disagree.

Very reliable

Excellent product, I've rarely had leaks using this overnight over a bamboozle nappy. I wish it left less red marks on baby's thighs in the morning though. Still more reliable than other wraps I've tried.

Does its job but cuts into leg a little

We had to get the size bigger than recommended for our LO as the correct size caused blistering but now they do the job and look great

Motherease Airflow Wraps

These wraps are excellent. My LO is a heavy wetter was leaking through other wraps in a few hours, but we haven't had one leak since we started using the Airflow by Motherease. The wraps are on all night.

Used these for two months and no leaks at all. Wash well and dry super fast. I bought the medium/large because my 12 month old son was 20lbs when I ordered. He is almost out of them, so I now wish I had just gone for the large and not bothered with the in between size.

This is a great product and worked much better for us than the TotsBots stretchy wraps. They are quite bulky though, that's my only negative
