Little Lamb Nippa Overview

Little Lamb NIPPA bamboo nappies are incredibly soft and extremely absorbent. They are also a fantastic price for a sized nappy system. The Little Lamb Bamboo is the best selling Little Lamb nappy, however Little Lamb are also available in Microfibre or Cotton. Bamboo viscose is extremely absorbent however it does have a tendency to shrink when woven into nappies. Little Lamb bamboo nappies now have their bamboo viscose knitted into a fine microfibre fabric therefore creating a non- shrinking non- pull bamboo nappy.

The Little Lamb bamboo is incredibly absorbent however it is also an extremely SLOW drying nappy. If you do not have a tumble drier as backup it would be a very good idea to have a mix of Little Lamb nappies so that you have some of the faster drying Little Lamb Cotton or the superfast drying Little Lamb Microfibre.


The leg is tight enough to prevent leaks but not too tight to create any chaffing. They use the softest elastic that is gentle on baby’s skin but is robust enough to last. The waist is also elasticated to help contain any explosions. Little Lamb bamboo come in three sizes but the vast majority of children will only need the first 2 sizes.

  • Size 1 fits 7-18lbs
  • Size 2 17-35lbs
  • Size 3 35lbs+

The Little Lamb nappy is a short length nappy and if your baby is tall or has the potential to be tall this might not be the nappy for you unless you’re happy you might have to buy all three sizes.

How do I use it?

All Little Lamb NIPPA bamboo nappies fasten with nappi nippas (purchased separately) . This gives you the best fit possible as you're not limited to where the velcro attaches.  You can also fold the front panel down to make them shorter to so they cover an even bigger weight range. Size 2 can be folded down in this way to make them fit from 10-35lbs so effectively birth to potty.  Folding them down in this way will make them bulkier but also highly cost effective.

Nappy Fabric

Each nappy comes with a double layer bamboo viscose booster to increase absorbency further. This is loose in the size 1 nappy so the nappy can be made slimmer for a newborn but the booster is sewn into the size 2. This booster is an integral part of the nappy and you will need an additional booster for night time. The Little Lamb bamboo is perfect as a night time nappy when used with an additional booster.

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 30˚ 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 the wraps with the velcro closed but inside out. Boosters and inserts are best removed from pocket nappies prior to washing.
- We advise washing at 30˚.

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.


Little Lamb Warranty

All Little Lamb products are guaranteed against manufacturing defects for 6 months from purchase, as long as care guidelines have been followed.

Use of the following will void warranty:

  • Nappy sanitisers (Napisan etc.)
  • Bleach, bleaching products (Oxy 10, vanish etc.)
  • Vinegar.
  • Washing soda, borax or bicarbonate of Soda.
  • Fabric softener.
  • Limescale removing  products (Calgon etc)
  • Dishwasher tablets.
  • Ecover, feedback of poor results, difficult to rinse thoroughly leaving residue and causing issues.

Little Lamb's decision on any warranty claim is final.

Love these
18 September 2022  | 

I absolutely love these as night time nappies. I tried little lamb fitted nappies as part of my local trial kit and personally found that the velcro ones don't last as well when old as the velcro wouldn't stick in the wash and would end up with wipes stuck to them. Don't have that problem with the NIPPA fastening style. I also find them super easy to put on my wriggly boy and don't get any leaks. They are so soft and look super comfy on him as well. I'm desperate to get some more!!

Works for us currently as night nappy
07 September 2022  | 

Bought these as my LO had outgrown the LL size 1s which we were leant by a friend. Initially thought these were huge when they arrived, but they fit fine. No leak so far overnight even feeding through the night.

Brilliant nappy
01 July 2022  | 

I have been using this on my newborn and I love it. I love the nippa fastening which is great for no Velcro in the wash. They are really absorbent, fluffy and soft and are a brilliant and economical choice for newborns and are a good size that they last for quite some time size wise

Our favourite
28 June 2022  | 

We love the LL nappy with the nippa fastening. Thanks to that we don't need to worry about velcro catching anything. It's very slim for a cloth nappy and we can adjust it just the way we want, not worrying it's too tight

Great night time nappy
21 July 2021  | 

I usd shaped bamboo tots bots with my first child but found the laundry tabs useless so all my wipes (and nappies to a lesser extent) were getting destroyed in the washing machine, so I wanted to find a new system for my second.

We spent our Lambeth borough teal napoy grant on 5x of these which we use for nighttime - we love nippas having dressed both babes in folded muslins as newborns. Nippas ensure you get the fit just right and avoid our Velcro washing experience. We pair with a motherease airflow. Great absorbency, soft even when line dried.
(For daytime we swear by bamboo motherease sandys).

Lovely soft nappies,
02 September 2020  | 

I have found little lamb bamboo nappies to be very reliable, absorbent nappies that have been great for nighttime with a bamboo/hemp booster. They are pretty bulky so I have only used at night. I have dropped one star due to the fact that if you wash above 40 they shrink quite significantly. My 7 month old is in a size 3!

So absorbant!!
25 July 2020  | 

I love these. They are so absorbant and as I bought the nippa fastening ones there are no issues with velcro in the wash. My little one is long and thin, i would imagine that a bigger baby with chunky thighs may not get quite such a good fit. They contain poonamis and can be left on for more than 4 hours (by accident) with no issues. I've been using Thirties sized wraps over them and they fit well/ look fairly trim.

Gorgeous but sizing not so much
16 April 2020  | 

Let’s start with what is fantastic about these Little Lambs one size nappies.
• the fabric is gorgeous. It is lovely and soft to the touch, if I were a baby this is what I would want next to my bum!
• Uber absorbent. A huge plus for any nappy.
• Great design! It makes so much sense to have a nappy that is literally a full wrap around nappy!

Now for the reason for the 3 * and not 5.

• the fit. All the above pluses are only helpful if the nappy fits! We are using size 3 for my toddler, but they are too small in length and width. The nappy fit sits very low, and isn’t wide enough. Fasting with the nappy nippa only exaggerates this. Though I am glad I have the nippa and not a fixed Velcro fastening, so that in a pinch we can still just about use these nappies. But they have been relegated to ‘emergency’ use.
• somewhat faffy to sluice with the attached liner, though I would forgive this if they fit, but is a reasonable point on its own. If you hate the job of cleaning a liner in your loo you’re going to hate trying to clean it whilst it’s still attached to a dirty nappy!

I absolutely love the idea of these nappies, I am just so sad that the fit is not good.

Little Lamb bamboo nippa fastening
20 February 2020  | 

We are loving using our little lamb nippa fastening nappies. The fact that there is no velcro to worry about in the wash is definitely a bonus. The bamboo is so soft and after only two prewashes they were already so absorbant. With a good wrap these have proven to be a brilliant night time nappy!

Lovely soft fluffy nappies
31 December 2019  | 

I use these for my now 4 month old and used from around 2 months as I found them quite big for my diddy slim girl. I use them mainly as night nappies and boost them with a triple booster. It’s taken a bit of trial and error to get the fit right but now I know what I’m doing I’m really impressed with them. They are completely soft without the stiff velcro and they don’t get mucky as velcro does. I find them so much more adjustable than the velcro option so the fit can be more customized to the baby’s shape. When they are boosted I’m more likely to get leg gaps if I’m not careful about fit. I have used unboosted in the day and they are very slim this way bu I still get 4-5 hours from them and they aren’t sopping wet either. They’re own brand wraps are very good in mum opinion, never had a leak and they don’t need to be tight, just covering the nappy.
If little lamb nippas were all I had for day and night is be perfectly happy. There’s no bells and whistles but sometimes that’s quite refreshing, but they are very cute, like little bum clouds. They do take ages to dry but I tumble them in winter and they’re budget enough to have a big stash to account for this.

Bamboozles and Bumbles are better
01 December 2019  | 

I got some of these as I was looking for something cheaper than bamboozles and bumbles were out of stock. They are not terrible, but they are not great either.

The plus is that they are very absorbent, however because of fit issues I have still had leaks.

They take forever to dry if you don't have a tumble dryer. I use a heated airer, and bamboozles / bumbles are dry in about 24 hours. These take over 3 days, as particularly the bits around the elastics just don't seem to dry. Consequently you can only really use them every other wash, so you don't actually save money because you need to buy double quantity to have enough dry nappies.

Regarding the fit, my baby is currently 7 months / 14.8 lbs / 6.5kg. She still fits size 1 LL velcro; she's very skinny so the velcro fits easily around her waist, but lengthwise size 1 is getting too small though it should fit until 20lbs. In the nippa version, I cannot use the size 1 because leg holes are not wide enough; it really seems to be a tiny nappy. We are using the size 2, which is miles too big around the waist - the tabs are fully crossed, but barely big enough in length. the nappy often slips down behind the tabs and comes loose, which never happens with bumbles though they are a similar design.

So in summary, absorbent, but I am not sure what baby these would fit well, as you need to have a short body / waist and not too chunky legs, but a nice round tummy to keep the nappy from slipping.
