Tumble or Bumble?
The Tumble is the natural version of Easy Peasy's famous onesize Bumble nappy. The main difference is that the Tumble does not have a staydry fleece lining inside.
Due to popular demand for an all natural nappy the Tumble was created. Is is the same shape and design as the Bumble with a pouch and removeable booster but instead of having a fleece lining it is toweling. Due to the additional absorbency of the extra towelling layer to form the pouch the removeable booster has 2 layers instead of 3.
Please be aware that without the staydry liner baby will have wet fabric next to their skin and you should consider using a disposable paper liner.
The Tumble is still a onesize nappy making it a very economical nappy as you only need one nappy rather than having to keep buying different sizes.
The Tumble is available in either popper or nippa fastening. The nippa fastening will offer the best fit because you have total adjustability both left and right and up and down rather than being restricted to where the poppers are. If baby will be going to daycare we recommend you buy the popper version for carer’s ease of use. However you can still use nappi nippas (instead of the poppers) by simply fastening around the poppers, so you get the best of both worlds! Nappi nippas can seem daunting at first but are easy to get the hang of and provide the best fit for containment. Nappi Nippas must be purchased separately from the nappy.
This is also a very absorbent nappy, excellent as a night nappy or for a heavy wetter. You may find a heavy wetter will need an extra booster for night time. Because of the opening the Tumble can also be stuffed with extra absorbency if required (in addition to or instead of the pop in pad, depending on how much absorbency is needed). The addition or removal of layers makes it quite a versatile nappy for bulking up or slimming down according to circumstance/clothing. The easily removed pop in booster also makes this nappy a fast drier.
The Tumble nappy is UK made by one Mum at home whom we have worked with for over 20 years.
The Tumble is a Onesize nappy officially fitting from 7-35lbs however as with any onesize nappy it will fit much better from 10lbs.
The Tumble is particularly suitable for tall or well-built children due to the generous cut and crotch depth and the flexibility offered by the Nippa fastening. This isn't considered a particularly slim nappy in comparison to some of the newer nappies on the market however it's one I've relied on with all my three children and personally love.
When the Tumble is changed into the smaller newborn setting (from 10lbs), the fit is still snug on small legs and waist.
How do I use it?
The Tumble comes with a pop in booster pad (included in the price) which pops onto a flap inside the nappy so as not to disturb the smooth line. To use as a newborn nappy, the pop in pad should be removed and the loose flap you are left with should be taken up inside the nappy to reduce the crotch depth. You can then attach the poppers on the flap to the matching poppers part way down the crotch (on the inside) if you wish though this is not essential and you may find it better not to if you need slightly more length in the nappy - it depends on the shape of your baby. If using the popper fastening as a birth to potty nappy you may need to use a Nappi Nippa for a short period at first as the popper placement is not always quite right on a smaller baby.
The Tumble is made from terry cotton towelling . 90% Cotton , 10% Polyester (in the base weave of the fabric). If you prefer natural fabrics against your babies skin then this would be a great option for you.
