Nappy Overview

Ultra-absorbent and irresistibly soft, the Thirsties Fitted nappy offers natural, superior wetness protection, perfect for newborn baby’s delicate skin. Includes an umbilical cord snap down which may be used while cord stump is present or belly button is healing. Remember, although you’re not going to want to cover up these adorable, ultra-soft diapers, they are not waterproof on their own!


Newborn 5-14 Lbs

How do I use it?

Poppers to adjust sizing o reduce the length of the nappy away from the umbilical area. This is a 2 part nappy system and would require a wrap.

Nappy Fabric

7 total layers of bamboo cotton – 3 layers in the body and 4 layers in the snap in soaker pads.

70% Rayon from Bamboo/30% Cotton

The nappy is adjusted using poppers on the main body of the nappy to adjust the length and the waist.  The nappy needs a separate wrap over the top to provide the waterproofing, the Motherease airflow fits perfectly.

Thirsties Care Guide

  • Wash all nappies once before use. Prewash any hemp products separately for at least 3 times. The hemp will reach full absorency after approximately 8 washes.
  • Wash dark colours separately
  • Wash with non-bio powder
  • No harsh stain removers or bleach. They may cause irritation and can damage the waterproof membrane
  • Don't use pastes of nappy powder directly applied to nappies as this is too concentrated.
  • No fabric softeners. They will reduce absorbency.
  • Rinse nappies prior to main wash. Or Prewash (small amount of detergent optional) but this will subject the nappies to more 'wear and tear'
  • Main wash with max wash temperature 60 degrees.
  • Line dry. Can be tumble dried on low, but ideally no more than once a month to prevent premature deterioration to the nappy.
  • If using a nappy cream always use a nappy liner - ideally a disposable paper liner.

Great newborn night nappy
Friday, 12 June 2020  | 

These are so soft and highly absorbent. Perfect if you want to cloth full time and need a night nappy from birth. Sad our little one grew out of these after 8 weeks but a perfect fitted for the early days. 4 stars is because they are quite pricey for a newborn option.

Good, but not for newborn
Tuesday, 1 October 2019  | 

We used this today on our week old baby. The nappy was easy to put on and seemed to fit nicely despite him being a small 6lb6oz. The first wee was well contained but we had a poo a few hours later and sorry to say that it leaked through one leg and then through the wrap (we had used a tots bots peanut wrap) and through his clothes. Looking afterwards at his thighs, we could see the nappy was sitting much more on his thigh than in the crease of the leg.
We wanted to try with the reusable straight away but this one didn’t work on our scrawny lad. Will go again in a week and see what happens.
