Two Parter, All in One, Pocket Nappy or All in Two Nappy?

Wednesday, 22 July 2015

Nappy Types

  • A two part nappy system means there is a separate nappy and wrap.  The nappy can be a modern shaped nappy as in the image below or a traditional flat nappy like a terry square. 

    Pros
    Best for longevity as if a component wears out you can just replace the one part.
    Best for poo containment
    Normally highest absorbency

    Cons
    Usually the most bulky
    Can be slow drying depending on fabric
    Slightly slower to put on due to the separate wrap.
     

 

 

 

 

  • In an all-in-one nappy, the nappy and wrap parts are built together into one item.  The absorbent nappy part is fully attached and doesn't separate. 


    Pros
    Quickest to change
    Often slim

    Cons
    Lower containment than a two part system
    Can be slow drying depending on fabric
    Longevity- The waterproof part gets washed every time as the whole nappy is sewn altogether, this decreases the longevity of the product as if one part fails the whole nappy needs to be replaced.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • A pocket nappy is a two piece nappy which can be put together beforehand to act like a kind of all-in-one. With a flat pad as the nappy which is inserted into a pouch/pocket in the waterproof cover.


    Pros
    Quick to change
    Often slim

    Cons
    Lower containment than a two part system
    Time - Needs to be stuffed after washing/unstuffed after use
    Longevity- The waterproof part gets washed every time as the whole nappy is sewn altogether, this decreases the longevity of the product as if one part fails the whole nappy needs to be replaced.
    The waterproof part gets washed every nappy change, this decreases the longevity of the product as if one part fails the whole nappy needs to be replaced.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • An all in two nappy system falls somewhere between a pocket nappy and an all in one nappy. They should not be confused with a shaped (two part) nappy system. The inner absorbent pads pop on to the outer wrap and, once poppered, form a one piece nappy. The pads can be unpoppered for washing and to speed dry.

    Pros
    Best for longevity as if a component wears out you can just replace the one part.
    Often slim

    Cons
    Slower to change due to poppering in the new insert
    Not many choices on the market


    Best for longevity as if a component wears out you can just replace the one part.
