White Bots Terry Squares make an excellent value and versatile cloth nappy system.  These are more absorbent and superior quality to the thin cotton terry squares you will find on the high street.  These are lovely and fluffy and a beautiful bright white.

They are bulkier than our bamboo terry squares but they still make excellent nappies which have been used for generations. They come in traditional white and are available in 2 sizes.

Which size should I buy?
60cm - This is the main size that most people will use. It fits birth to potty for the vast majority of children 7-35lbs.
70cm - Large toddler to adult size. For Adults it should be pad folded.
 
The Motherease Air Flow wrap is the best choice over terries, but if you are planning to pad fold your terries either occasionally or full time, you will need a gussetted velcro wrap like the Motherease Rikki. The  blueberry and Flip wraps can also be used.

We sell Nappi Nippas for use with terries, and do not sell pins. However, if for some reason you do wish to use pins, please avoid the blunt ones that the high street stores think are a good idea and try to track down some nice, sharp Prym nappy pins.

If you do choose to use terry squares there are lots of different fold options illustrated in the Nappy Advice - Help Videos section. You could use White Bots Terry Squares from birth, if using a flexible fold which spreads the bulk like the Jo Fold.

Effective, versatile and quick drying
Friday, 3 August 2018  | 

I really like these nappies. I've used them from a couple of weeks old ~8lbs. They are bulky at first but my daughter didn't seem bothered by this.
The challenge with them is finding the right fold for your baby's size, and this does change. I've used the Jo fold, the Neat fold and the Gaynor fold, and they've all been great and we haven't had any leaks that escaped the wrap (rikki). The downside to these nappies is that it's harder to have other people change nappies because it takes a while to learn.
We have to dry indoors and these dry overnight on a warm day, or at worst within 24hrs in the winter.

Ok for the price

These are ok, but not as good as I expected. They aren’t a perfect square which is frustrating when folding! They are also thinner than I thought they would be. However, they do the job and are reasonably priced.

My wife is wheelchair bound as a lower limb amputee and we use the nappies for lining the top of the pressure relief cushion. They are excellent quality and first class service from the Nappy Lady.

Cotton terry squares

Great quality cotton terry squares. They wash well and keep their shape better than muslins. Absorbancy is good with the right fold but the real advantage is the drying time. I bought them to back up my nappy supply when the weather is bad as our only drying option is outside line drying. They dry in 30 minutes outside or a couple of hours inside.

Really like these, lovely and soft and absorbent and much easier to use than I'd expected. These with an airflow wrap are my go to. I also like to use one with a wool wrap for overnight. Totally adjustable, I liked learning all the different folds. Only issue with flats compared to fitteds I have found is the lack of leg elastic means runny poo usually gets onto the wrap, although so far never beyond that! They are just SO easy to clean and quick to dry though!

Misleading description
Friday, 13 April 2018  | 

The item is described as suitable from newborn - well it isn't. By the time you fold thus nappy, is so bulky that isimpossible to lay your baby flat, their bottom is much higher than should be. Also it is so bulky that no newborn clothes fit on it. I am looking forward to the time when baby grows so we can use these as so far this purchase was a waste of money, really disappointed.

Response:

So sorry you've not liked the fit of terry squares. Terry Squares have been used for generations of babies and these are no different. They are the same great material our mothers used (Harrington Gold for any Grannys reading this) and the same birth to potty size 60x60cm. Cloth nappies are bulkier than disposables but remember the bulk is actually better for babies hips and all the rubbish disposables have fed us about needing to be slim for activity is actually worse for babies hip development. Have a read of our article on hip positioning. If you have a very small baby then any birth to potty will be disproportionally large follow our advice and use folded muslins until baby is closer to 10lbs. We have lots of articles and videos on folded muslins. Your terry squares will fit up to 35lbs so you'll get plenty of wear out of them so not wasted money. If you need more help or reassurance on the fit and folding of your nappies please email us and we'll be happy to check your folds from photos.

Excellent product, excellent service

I ordered a lot of nappies, liners, breast pads, plastic pants etc for my daughter's first baby, due very soon. Being of an older generation, I found the Nappy lady website very helpful in guiding me through the vast range of products available these days! The nappies I ordered seemed a little thinner than mine of 30 years ago, but still substantial and also beautifully soft even after washing without fabric conditioner.

Terry Squares 70cm
Tuesday, 25 April 2017  | 

I find these to be very good quality nappies as an adult bedwetter who is fed up with disposables due to their lack of security and comfort at night. Folding a 70 cm square into a 3 layer rectangle is ideal size to act as a booster to the adult Bambinex wrap, or for a more traditional approach use two nappies folded to give a 6 layer soaker pad inside a pinned on shaped thinnish nappy that I had from another supplier, all covered by adult sized plastic pants. The advantage of this as an adult is that you can boot absorbancy bit still have "easy to launder and dry" single layer nappies which in my opinion are more comfortable and reliable than the disposables on the market. Yes they are bulkier and it may seem a "babyish" solution but they are effective at the task of keeping the bed dry.

Good quality and great service and advice when I ordered and discussed my needs with Wendy. She was empathetic to the fact that it isn't just little ones that need the protection of nappies.

Good but...
Monday, 14 November 2016  | 

I use these for catching possets and other leaks of general bodily fluids, and rubbing posset off the carpet/ my clothes. They've been in use 4 months. They're basically what I wanted, but either the hems are coming undone or the threads that make the loops have somehow unravelled and so there are long threads for baby to get tangled in...

I bought the terry squares having previously used the small bamboo flats on my newborn. They're not as absorbant but dry quickly and are reasonaby easy to use. They only downside is they arent absorbant enough for nighttime but work well with a folded muslin.

Soft, absorbent, versatile
Friday, 1 April 2016  | 

Decided to give terry squares a go after trying various other nappies and getting problems with leakage. The great thing I've found with the terries is you get a custom fit to your baby and they are so versatile. We usually get 2.5 hours max out of a pocket or all in one but have been up to 4 hours with these when napping (without boosters) and to be honest could've kept it them on even longer than that! We are now using them full time in the day and I really wish I hadn't been so frightened of them in the beginning.

In preparation for having my son, we bought flat terry square nappies, which have done the job well enough. My mum came to visit and commented on the poor quality of the nappies, compared with the ones she used to use so I bought one of these from the Nappy Lady to see if it was any different and it is a much nicer, thicker, softer nappy, which will last much longer than the ones I originally bought.

Perfect size for nappies. Really easy to use once you know how. YouTube has helpful videos. Also really handy as changing mat covers, burp cloths, bath towels, etc. Can do everything a muslin does and thicker so no spills but not so easy to carry around in a changing bag.

i use terries with bambinex liners and motherease airflow wraps during the day, and usually get through about 8 per day. these are really soft and absorbent, and wash and dry really quickly. they keep their shape really well too. occasional leakage depending on how well i've put them on, but generally perform really well. really good value for money option, as long as you don't mind all the folding.

I brought these because I couldn't get hold of any zorbit nappies, which I used 5 years ago with my so. They aren't much cheaper, but the quality isn't a patch on them. I've washed them about 3 or 4 times so far and they are already losing their shape and have strands coming off. These are not going to last very long. Disappointed.
