The Hippynut Wholenut all in one is a very simple to use style of cloth nappies
The inner bamboo absorbency is fully attached at the front and back of the nappy. This means there are no parts to separate or loose in the washing process. As the inner pad is only attached at the front and back this allows the inner absorbency to hang freely from the PUL which allows the nappy to wash more thoroughly and dry quicker than if the inner was fully sewn in. The inner fairly thick which shows the level of absorbency however it is not the slimmnest nappy.
The Hippynut Wholenut all in one is a onesize nappy which means it covers a large weight range.
The bamboo inner is surrounded top and bottom with a staydry layer. Baby is kept feeling dry and the underneath staydry layer helps keep the PUL dry which means there is less chance of wicking and leaks. The drawback to the pad being full encased in staydry material is that it is harder to tell if the nappy is fully dry after washing.
The Wholenut all in one also offers you a double leg gusset to increase containment. The elastic is very strong and feels stronger than many other brands. This has the advantage of aiding containment however it is more prone to leaving "sock marks" from the strong elastic and can be too tight for chunky chubby legs.
The Hippynut Wholenut is a onesize nappy and fits from approximately 7-35lbs (3.2-16kgs), however as with all onesize cloth nappies we find they fit best from 10-12lbs.
How do I use it?
The waist is adjustable through a series of poppers and each nappy has an elasticated waist and back for increased adjustability of fit. You’ll see from the photo the poppers are vertically positioned in two rows which in my testing gives the securest popper fastening far superior than other popper fastening nappies which are in one row. The nappy also has hip stability poppers to help prevent wing droop.
The adjustable length on the Wholenut all in one is fabulous! The length is adjusted using the "rise" poppers on the front body of the nappy. There are a fantastic five rise settings so you won't find any need to compromise on length for your little one. The rise is secured 3 poppers across which ensures the length is held securely.
Most modern cloth nappies offer fewer rise lengths so the five rise settings on the Hippynut wholenut really makes it stand out.
Underneath the inner absorbent pad you'll find 4 poppers towards the front of the nappy. These poppers allow you to shorten the length of the pad for when the nappy is in use in the shortest setting. This clever adjustable insert length adaption keeps the inner pad sitting flatter in the nappy at the lower end of the weight range.
You can use reusable liners or disposable liners in the Wholenut all in one to make getting rid of poo easier. You can use most disposable liners however the Bambinex liners fit the best.
Don't forget to wash nappy before first use as this increases absorbency. The Hippynut will reach full absorbency after approximately five washes. Please be aware this nappy is not suitable as a night nappy.
