Brand:  Motherease

Motherease Airflow is a popper fastening PUL (polyurethene laminate) wrap that is leak proof but refuses to compromise on breathability! The fabric is soft, durable and waterproof.

Sizes

The Motherease airflow comes in 6 sizes but most people only need 2-3 sizes birth to potty.

XS 6-12lbs (trim cut)*
Small 6-12lbs*
Medium 10-20lbs
Med/Large 20-27lbs (trimmer cut than Large)
Large 20-35lbs
XL 35lbs+

*Note that the XS/Small sizes poppers towards the front for ease of use when changing a small baby, whereas the larger sizes popper towards the back.

The Medium/Large (20-27lbs) size covers the lower end of the Large Air Flow size range (20-35lbs). This is because the Large feels very baggy when a slim child has outgrown a Medium and the Medium/Large is intended for those who like a trimmer fit. Obviously it adds an extra size of wraps in, which pushes the price up, but that might not be so important for you.

One time when the M/L wrap is a very good choice is when a child of around 15lbs switches to cloth. Instead of getting 4 medium wraps which will be quite quickly outgrown, you could opt for 2 Medium, 2 M/L and 2 Large, to bridge the gap nicely.

What's So Special about the Air Flow?

The poppers are at the legs and waist on each side, and there are a number of different settings. Because of the separate leg and waist fastening, it has excellent adjustability for the child whose legs and waist are not in perfect proportion to each other. With a Velcro wrap, if your child has thin legs but a fat waist, the wrap may have to be closed too tightly at the waist to give sufficient containment at the legs, or vice versa. This is not the case with the Air Flow wrap.

The airflow is secured with adjustable poppers at the waist and legs openings and has an air ventilation system between the poppers. This allows for maximum air circulation as baby moves, reducing the risk of bacteria by keeping the temperature of the cloth nappy down. The ventilation system makes it the most breathable PUL wrap on the market by far. You think it somehow “ought” to leak, but I can assure you it doesn’t. Very cunning design.

Another advantage of the Air Flow is that the side-positioning of the poppers makes it virtually childproof! The trouble with Velcro-fastenings, as with disposable nappies, is that your child can easily undo them - and the tougher the Velcro, the more tempting it is for them. You can almost hear them saying “Look, Mummy, a toy on my tummy...” Not all children are manic un-fasteners, but if you have one of those, you’ll find popper wraps a far less frustrating option, unless you want your child to wear dungarees on a permanent basis!

As the poppers are at the side of the wrap it is perfect for children with sensitive skin as there is no velcro to catch or snag on. For tummy sleepers there are no poppers at the front of the nappy to press into their skin either!

There are no gussets in the wrap which makes the legs holes larger than on other wraps. The legs holes of the airflow are designed to be LOOSE and not fitted snug to the skin. This is again to make the nappy more breathable but also so little legs on the move don't get chaffed. The airflow is especially good for chubby legs allowing them plenty of room.

Why does it look like "granny pants?"

It is a very baggy wrap, in comparison with Velcro-fastening wraps, and some people don’t like the “puffball” look. However, that’s one of the reasons why it is so reliable, because there is plenty of room between nappy and wrap, minimising the risk of wicking due to a bit of the nappy sticking out anywhere. That’s also one reason why it is an excellent wrap over the bulkiest of night nappies and the best wrap over traditional terry squares.
 

What nappies can the airflow be used over?

The airflow is pretty much a universal wrap and can be used over virtually every modern shaped nappy.  However because there is no gusset at the legs, the Air Flow is not suitable over prefolds or other fasten-free/ pad folded nappies .... normally. I have known people use it with pad folded prefolds successfully, but only on pretty solidly-built children, because they fill the wrap so much more! It certainly won’t work with your average or skinny child.



Washable at 60 with the nappies, you can also tumble dry it on cool, although to be honest give it a good shake and hang it over a chair, and it will be dry within a few minutes anyway.

The Air Flow wraps I have used on my children have now been in use for 9 years and I have not had a single one ever fail or break.   So reliable on both waterproofing and containment, flexible on fit, childproof, washable at 60 and can be tumble dried .... what do you mean, this wrap is not for you?!!...

Great with my Onelife nappies
Saturday, 30 July 2016  | 

I actually prefer these to the original Onelife covers I have as the fabric is (or seems to be) softer and less thicker which is important as we live in a hot climate.

Great wraps

Perfect over our size 2 stretchies. Keep the wet in all night. Easy to wash and dry super quick. Nice colours and prints. They are quite baggy so I wouldn't use them in the day though.

The nappy lady is amazing, taken all our recommendations and they are all perfect for us. Stupidly bought an extra one which she didn't recommend to try and it's not nearly so good! Super fast delivery and the best prices o can find on the net. Thank you!

Spot On
Tuesday, 14 June 2016  | 

I bought these when my chunky 8 month old started crawling. The previous wraps had velcro which rubbed her thigh making it sore. These are spot on. The design is fairly basic, elastic top and legs but they are so effective. The poppers at the side means there is no rubbing and I haven't yet had a leak. Sometimes there's a mark on her tummy or thigh where the elastic sits but this can be prevented by tucking the wrap around the nappy. The designs are cute which is great in the summer as she crawls around flashing the pattern for all to see. This website is easy to use, the write up about the product is accurate and delivery is punctual. Very happy customer who would not hesitate to return.

Comfortable and easy to adjust
Tuesday, 31 May 2016  | 

I love not having the Velcro rubbing on my baby's waist - found that difficult to get right with the Rikki, as she's a very squirmy baby even at 2 months. The Airflow I have hasn't had any leaks (versus 2 poo leaks with the Rikkis) and I'm able to adjust the leg and waist separately, which is really handy as she's not proportionate at the moment. Will definitely be ordering the next size up wraps in Airflows when we go to size 2 nappies.

so reliable
Monday, 23 May 2016  | 

i ordered airflows because from what all the different wraps I could test during my firstborn's nappy time and half my second's they proved to be the most reliable.
As I needed to replace my stock to go on, I chose only Airflows and I'm really happy with my order : smooth, resistent, well adjusted. Moreover snaps are, from my experience, the only solution for a child that does not lie quietly anymore as it is possible to adjust them while the child is standing.
The Rikki version si fine for newborns / younger, not-so-mobile babies, though !

I like the poppers on these wraps. Velcro can rub against my daughters "outy" tummy button.
They are a looser fit, but don't leak.

These wraps are fantastic! I use them with little lamb shaped nappies and unlike others i've tried there is never any leakage onto leg cuffs. Gorgeous colours and prints too. As always fantastic service and delivery from The Nappy Lady.
