Motherease Aiflow is a popper-fastening laminated PUL wrap. Motherease Airflow wrap fastens at the legs and waist with a choice of popper settings. The Motherease Airflow comes in three main sizings. Note that the small size poppers towards the front, whereas the larger sizes popper towards the back. Motherease also make a Velcro fastening wrap called the Rikki.
We stock these wraps in white and the Eco Theme (TM) prints.
There are five Eco Theme prints, as shown in our picture, from left to right they are; Savanna, The Wetlands, Rainforest, Asia, Ocean. If you want to read more about them full descriptions can be found here. I particularly love the description of the Wetlands print. What’s so special about the Air Flow? Well, it is a popper-fastening wrap in 3 main sizes. The poppers are at 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 way it does up at the sides gives a ventilated section, which 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. 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 over traditional terries. Because there is no gusset at the legs, the Air Flow is not suitable over prefolds or other fasten-free 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. One other 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! Finally, being popper-fastening, it is highly suitable for anyone with sensitive skin, and will not snag or catch in the wash. 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 7 years, and they look and perform as well today as they did when new. In fact, I sometimes take one to antenatal talks and ask the group to guess which is the wrap which has been in use for seven years. They hardly ever get it right. Note that there is a new size called Medium/Large (20-27lbs), which 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. 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?!!...
I like these Motherease wraps better than the Totsbots, because they have waist and thigh button adjusters, rather than just the waist. That means no leaks!

My daughter is 18 weeks old and 13lb. I couldn't do the poppers tight enough but I know in a few weeks it will fit fine. I love my rikki wrap and know I will love this too!
No leaks at all, even though my baby was slightly under the recommended weight range when we started using it.
These wraps are great. I have purchased the third size now and use them since my baby was born. They do not leak, are easy to wash and dry and they look as new even after I have used them for months.
I have only recently started using these, so can't comment on longevity. But I have found them to be good for my baby's eczema. I use Little Lamb nappies and prefer these to the Little Lamb wraps because of the extra breathability. They seem to be good from a containment point of view too.
I've started using these over FuzziBunz Elites on my son who is a heavy wetter and so was soaking through the nappies. I couldn't sensibly fit more boosters in so have been using these and am pleased to report no leaks as yet! They're certainly generous in size, so if in doubt, go a size under.
I am very impressed with the Motherease Wraps, both the Rikki and the Airflow. The containment is wonderful.
These wraps we're recommended to me and are fantastic. They look huge on but we've never had a leak and my little girl is very comfortable in them.
I didn't like this wrap when I received it as it looked massive on. Even though I didn't have a single leak with this wrap, I decided to buy a little lamb one instead as I preferred the colour and it looked smaller. However1st night on, this leaked. I am now back to using my Motherease and not a single leak since! The little lambs wraps will be going on Ebay!!
Really like these wraps. They fit well, contain everything and are easy to put on. My little girl also cant undo the poppers, unlike the velcro ones. I use these under motheaease one size nappies, which I can also thoroughly recommend. My daughter just started nursery and they have not had any problems with these. Also got some helpful advice about sizing from the NappyLady prior to purchase.
