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?!!...

Very soft

We predominantly use these at night with little lambs bamboo nappies. As we live in a country with very hot and humid summers I hope to try them in the day over a lighter nappy to allow a bit of air to circulate.
We got M size and have used them from 2 months of age. He's 4 months now and about 15 pounds and there is still plenty of room.
Although we mostly use them at night we bought two and I am glad we did as the fabric has a kind of soft velvety textured fabric on the outside and the edge seems are also covered by a soft elasticated plastic piping which tends absorb a very minute amount of urine meaning at least a rinse after use is in order to prevent a subtle odor. The other good thing with using a wrap is while you change it provides a wonderful waterproof mat that on a few occasions has caught a 'live' poo on its way out of our little baby.

We use this with a bamboozel every night. Quick wash in the morning and it will dry and be ready for the next night.

I love the material of these wraps they seem really special. My baby had a skinny waist and very chubby legs so these are perfect as the poppers can be adjusted on waist and legs. They go over muslins, terry towels and the motherease nappies really well and I've hardly ever had any leaks (especially with motherease nappies leaks are virtually unheard of). They dry quickly and wash well some of mine look a little tired but they're just as effective, they are quite expensive but don't need replacing once you have them.

A bit hit and miss on leaks
Wednesday, 3 May 2017  | 

I'm lucky in that my little boy does looooong sleeps- have found these can leak if he sleeps in. Previously had the smaller size and they didn't leak till they were a bit too small so a little disappointed with these. Also none of his pyjamas fit well over them!!

Response:

If you're getting leaks with a motherease wrap then you should look at the nappy not having enough absorbency as motherease wraps are perfect. A wrap can only keep the wetness inside if there is something to absorb it. Add some boosters in over night and you'll be back to dry night.

no more leaks!!!
Tuesday, 11 April 2017  | 

This was the perfect thing to stop my heavy wetter from leaking at night! I use a totsbots bamboozle with a peenut pad booster, and now with this airflow wrap on top, no more wicking onto his clothes no matter how wet the diaper gets! They really do look like granny pants, so not my favorite for day, but the "airflow" really makes them superb for overnight. Love love love it!
