Vest Extenders

£3.00   

Vest extenders are simple yet very clever, they increase the length of a normal size baby vest. An invaluable accessory for those using cloth nappies.

Cloth nappies are usually bulkier than disposables, especially boosted night time nappies. This can make standard baby vests tight or too short to easily popper up underneath the crotch. Vest extenders allow extra room for a cloth nappy or just to accommodate a tall/long baby. You can of course put baby in a baby vest that is the next size up, but the issue with this is that the vest is then often very loose around the neck. Vest extenders popper to the bottom of the baby vest and add approx 4 inches (10cm) to the overall length.

The vest extenders come in packs of 3 in white cotton (or choose a single vest extender to try them out), with same size poppers, as used by most chain stores. The 3 poppers are 9mm in diameter and positioned 15-20mm apart (there is some sideward stretch to this product.) Will fit most brands of baby clothes (except Frugi, Green Baby, some Baby Gap, Wilkinsons, and Mini Mode).

Little Lamb Care Guide

Store dirty nappies in the nappy pail, separating any washable boosters, inserts or liners and closing the Velcro tabs over on themselves.  When you have a load ready, put them in the washer on a 40˚ wash with half the recommended dose of detergent, give them an extra rinse and air dry. That's all there is to it.

Here are a few tips:                         

- Dry pail the nappies.
- Soiled nappies should be washed regularly. Do not leave soiled nappies for longer than three days.
- Check the Velcro tabs are closed tightly on the nappies. Wash our wraps velcroed closed but inside out. Boosters and inserts are best removed from pocket nappies prior to washing.
- We advise washing at 40˚.

The above is all most parents need to know but for the few parents who need it we've included the sum of our knowledge below:

Detergent: In our opinion powder detergents dissolve quicker and rinse better leading to cleaner laundry.

Dosage: We advise starting with half the recommended dose of detergent for the load size and water hardness and working up from there. The amount of detergent needed is dependent on load size, machine type and water hardness. Soft water needs less detergent to be effective and hard water needs more - possibly up to a full recommended dose.

Fabric softener: Do not use fabric softener in your nappy wash - it will coat the fibres and inhibit absorption.

Sanitisers: We do not recommend using sanitisers with your nappy wash. Sanitisers will affect the elastic and Velcro components and shorten the life of your nappies.

Drying: Drying nappies in direct sunshine is best. Placing them by, but not touching, a heat source is effective but do not place them directly on radiators as they may scorch. Avoid using a tumble drier where possible; if you do use a tumble dryer make sure it's on the low heat setting. Do not tumble dry wraps or pocket nappies.

We've found these really useful for helping fit vests over bulky bottoms! One would have probably been enough since they rarely need washing, but we've found it useful to have the set of 3 so that we can always have a spare.
The fabric has enough stretch to fit a variety of vest popper set ups, and the poppers fit the standard size used on baby clothes - I haven't yet had a vest it hasn't worked on, and we've got a whole hodge podge of different brands that we've got second hand

This are good vest extenders. After my first daughter kept getting leaks frequently, I realised it was mainly because of pressure of the vests against the nappies. So this works great!

These vest extenders are so useful!
Tuesday, 10 November 2020  | 

When we started putting our baby in reusable nappies, we realised right away that vest extenders would be incredibly useful. Most vests that otherwise fit my baby aren't long enough to cover her nappies. These extenders fit most types of vests (only one of our French vests have different widths between the poppers). I recommend them for any parents using reusables!

Less clothes buying so good for the budget and the environment
Saturday, 3 October 2020  | 

Great product that extends the life of clothes and makes a non-issue of which kind of nappy you put in baby next at any nappy change. As the Nappy Lady warns, they donít fit all vests, inc Baby Gap, but they fit enough of my very miscellaneous stash that with my baby at 10.5mo Iím confident of being able to skip any 9-12m vest purchasing by extending my 6-9m and bringing forward 12-18m. Thatís just with one pack of extenders, as theyíll do a couple of vests if thereís no nappy blow-out. That makes me very happy. Iíve had them since birth and they also kept some favourite vests going in earlier stages.

A bit disappointed
Saturday, 19 September 2020  | 

The poppers don't fit my newborn or 0-3 month vests. I wanted to extend them to fit my long bodied little one's vests over cloth nappies as she is long and skinny, currently most 0-3 months ones are swamping her round the shoulders and sleeves so was hoping this would extend the use of the new born ones but it doesn't fit either size. Service was great though.

After reading lots of bad reviews for vest extenders on other sites, I came across these and Iím glad I purchased them. They are really good quality and work well to give us extra room for nappies, even with our long boy and has given us extra life on older vests.
We have found they work well for M&S vests but they donít fit some Zara ones.

Handy but design could be better
Sunday, 21 June 2020  | 

Having vest extenders is definitely useful, particularly if you have a tall, skinny baby with a bulky cloth nappy.

However, I don't understand why the poppers on these aren't on the binding at the edge, like on the vests. It means you get a big lump sticking out through whatever clothes they've got on top.

They're also really quite expensive for what they are. I could buy a pack of vests for the same price.

Just what we needed
Wednesday, 3 June 2020  | 

Brilliant little things, just what we needed to keep vests fitting over the bulkier cloth nappies. Our little boy is tall and slim so the right sized vests for his age fit his body but are a really tight stretch over his nappy whereas the next size up are long enough but really baggy - these little things are the perfect solution. They fit all the vests weíve tried so far - great.

I have tried buying cheap extenders on Amazon but they only worked for a few of my baby's vests. These work for every brand I have tried (including Sainsbury's, John Lewis, Next and M&S). They are great quality and really extend the life of my very tall baby's vests, especially when he has his big two-part nappy on at night. I would recommend these to all cloth nappy users!

Do the job but fabric not holding
Tuesday, 16 July 2019  | 

An essential for anyone using cloth. Really soft even after washes in hard water and fit everything Iíve tried so far - has saved me buying a load of specialist clothes for cloth! Only gripe would be that after a few weeks use, on one of them (the one I use most I guess) the fabric around the popper has started to come away so there is a hole. Itís still useable at present but suspect eventually it will rip right off. Could be that I should be using them all in more of a rotation though. Still better than the cheap alternatives elsewhere which Iím sure wouldnít last one wash!
