HERO Nappy Overview
The Hero nappy by Tots Bots is a very clever hybrid one size reusable nappy system. Hero is a two piece nappy that comes with a pocket and a removable snap in dry pad. It can be an all in one, a pocket, a newborn, a one size and a training pant all options rolled into one nappy! hero is the ultimate reusable nappy for absorbency, fit and comfort.
Hero reusable nappies offer versatile absorbency perfect for daytime but if you have a heavy wetter or need a longer wear time such as a long car journey you can popper in an additional power up booster pad (available separately) to get you the wear time your baby needs. I also love the flexibility of the pocket opening at the back of the nappy. The opening allows you to stuff the nappy with additional inserts. If you have spare or old inserts from other nappies you can reuse these in the Hero pocket making your system even more economical. Once stuffed the inserts are kept secure and out of the way, ideal for nursery or occasional childcare.
The Hero nappy can be used for night time for average wetters when combined with additional inserts.
Hero reusable nappies isn't the quickest drying nappy due to the wonderfully absorbent bamboo fabric. Don't let this put you off however, because all the components separate out and the greater airflow provided by the pocket opening speeds up the overall drying time.
The wide double elastication at the back of the Hero nappy waist not only gives brilliant poo containment from day one but is soft, gentle and comfortable for little one. Poonamis will be a thing of the past.

How do I use it?
The nappy is secured around the waist by Hook and Loop fastening which is rip tested up to 10,000 cycles.
