This page is for the Sandy's Dry version only.
How is a Sandy's Dry different to cotton Sandy's nappies?
Sandys Cotton and Sandy's Dry are both made of the same natural cotton terry and are identical in their leak proof design apart from one key difference.
- The Sandy's Dry is fully lined inside with the high tech Mother-ease Stay Dry lining.
- The in built stay dry lining means baby will be kept dry at every part of the nappy
- Even in hard water the liner will remain soft against the skin
- Removes the need to use a separate nappy liner.
More about the Mother-ease Stay Dry Lining
Mother-ease do not use fleece in their reusable nappies or on nappy boosters like other brands do. Fleece slows absorption and that can cause leaks so Motherease had their own special staydry fabric created.
Mother-ease Staydry fabric is entirely different to any other staydry fabric on the market and it is made JUST for them! Mother-ease use a specially knit fabric that creates a stay dry barrier by the weave in the fabric. It allows the wetness to easily pass through, but not back. Keeping the babies skin dry to the touch.
Another neat aspect is that they include a cooling yarn as well. This keeps the temperature inside the nappy lower - cooler for baby and reduces the growth of bacteria.
Sandys Nappies General Overview
The Sandy's fitted Nappy is world famous for its great absorbency, leak-proof design and ease of washing!
Sandy's nappies are a two part system. The Sandys is the absorbent nappy part and over the top you will need to put a separate waterproof wrap/cover. The most popular wrap to use is the Mother-ease Airflow wrap or the Mother-ease Rikki.
Sandys are one of the few fitted nappies on the market that has gentle elastics at the front and back at the waist. All round waist elastic increases containment and ensures the optimum fit. Leg openings are also fully elasticated to ensure poos remain contained no matter the consistency or poonami. Mother-ease also use the highest quality never fail elastics
Sandys fasten using poppers on the side of the nappy allow you to adjust the waist and leg settings independently making them ideal if your baby has a slim waist and chubby legs or vice versa. The side poppers are also ideal for tummy sleepers as there is nothing to dig into baby on the front.
Sandys are a generous length and stretchy making them suitable for the vast majority of children including those taller than average or chunky monkeys. Slimmer children fit in them well but will stay in the smaller width settings for longer.
The stretch terry fabric and popper fastenings mean that some people like to use it as a trainer pull-up pant but with the added advantage of the full absorbency of a proper nappy.
Sandy's Dry is available in three sizes, giving you the best fit as baby grows.
- X-Small (newborn), 6-12lbs
- Small, 8-20lbs
- Large, 20-35lbs
Is there an XL Sandy's Size?
Yes there is! It's called Toddle-Ease but that's really just another name for an XL Sandys. Toddle-Ease is available in original cotton Toddle-Ease and Toddle-Ease Dry. Many children are potty trained before outgrowing the large Sandys at 35lbs and so will not need the Toddlease size of nappy. If however you do have a larger child the ToddleEase; is suitable for children over 35lbs and when boosted makes a fantastic and reliable night nappy as well.
How do I use it?
With the Sandys Dry cloth nappy you do not need to add a separate nappy liner as the Sandy's Dry is fully lined. However if you prefer to have a disposable paper liner to make getting rid of poo easier you can still use this.
When you come to change the nappy you will reuse the cover and just change the inner Sandys nappy (and liner). The Sandys nappy can also be used for night time, you will extra absorbency provided by an additional booster, the Sandys Booster is the perfect choice.
Sandys Dry nappies can be tumble dried on low but preferably air dried.
Natural Cotton Terry- dense 85% cotton inner, 15% polyester
Liner - 100% Polyester
Mother-ease's natural fabrics contain a small percentage of polyester in the core of the fabric to give longevity. Mother ease's fabrics are custom knit specifically for them and include a poly core for shrinkage control + durability - as a natural fabric that has to endure this many washes would wear out too quickly using only 100% cotton
Sandy's Cotton without a built in staydry liner is found on it's own separate product page.
