Petit Lulu Minimal Nappy is designed especially for Elimination Communication (EC). The nappy works great as a safety-catcher not only for EC but also for babies that are just about to say goodbye to nappies.
The Petit Lulu minimal inserts (purchased separtely) popper into the Minimal nappy cover. The popper holds the insert securely inside making potty using time easier. The Minimal inserts offer basic absorbency but that is all that is needed for EC due to the training to release urine on cue.
You could in theory use any small prefolds inside the minimal cover but these wouldn't be securely poppered inside. Minimal inserts are available individually or in packs of 6.
How many do I need?
Depending on how far along your EC journey you are will directly affect how many packs you need. One set kit (1 Minimal wrap and 6 Minimal inserts) is enough for 6 misses with an immediate change every time. That might be a week's worth of nappies for you or it might not get you until lunch time.
We recommend the following for families starting with EC:
1 Set as a trial to see if EC is for you or for a well established EC child who rarely has an accident.
3 Sets as a minimum if you are following EC most of the time.
5 Sets if you are following EC fulltime and have made a definite choice to follow EC.
Approx 5-13kgs (12-28lbs)
The nappy can be adjusted by poppers to adjust the length and by knotting the elastic band around the tummy to make the waist snugger.
How do I use it?
When you want to put baby on the potty you just pull down the front flap and position them over the potty. Quick and easy access which is needed for EC.
Petit Lulu Minimal nappy is NOT recommended for nap or night times as the inserts do not hold enough for extended periods of wear where baby would be regularly urinating.
100% polyester (laminated with polyurethane),
Poppers underlaid by fleece.
ATTENTION : the Minimal Insert for this Minimal Nappy is NOT INCLUDED as part of this product and is purchased separately.
