Little Lamb Cotton nappies are made of standard cotton but they also come in organic cotton if you prefer (see separate listing). They are white, soft and very absorbent. Many nappy manufacturers have been moving away from cotton in the last few years as bamboo fabric is more absorbent. However cotton is still ideal for nappies and has been used for many generations cotton is also far quicker drying than bamboo. The only drawback to cotton nappies is that the cotton will go harder over time like bathroom towels if they aren’t occasionally tumble dried to 'fluff' them up.

The soft liner inside the nappy will always keep the layer next to babies skin soft though so don’t let this put you off. Little Lambs are also a fantastic price for a sized nappy system. Little Lamb nappies are also available in bamboo or microfibre. Like all Little Lamb nappies the cotton is knitted onto the nappy base rather than weaved| to ensure it doesn’t shrink.

All Little Lamb nappies fasten with Velcro making them extremely simple to use. The tabs on all the Little Lambs have a crossover tab at the waist so the nappy can be made a tighter fit for a smaller baby.

There are laundry tabs inside each nappy which are designed to secure the tabs before the nappy goes into the bucket or washing machine. This prevents the velcro picking up fluff in the washing machine and makes the velcro long lasting.

The fit of the Little Lambs has been altered and offers a fantastic fitting nappy. The leg is tight enough to prevent leaks but not too tight to create any chaffing. They use the softest elastic that is gentle on baby’s skin but is robust enough to last. The waist is also elasticated to help contain any explosions.

Little Lamb Cotton currently comes in two sizes. Size 1 fits 7-18lbs and Size 2 fits 18-35lbs. Each nappy comes with a double layer cotton booster to increase absorbency further. This is loose in the size 1 nappy so the nappy can be made slimmer for a newborn but the booster is sewn into the size 2. This booster is an integral part of the nappy and you will need an additional booster for night time. The Little Lamb cotton comes with a fleece liner so you don’t need to buy fleece liners separately. You can of course use disposables paper liners instead if you prefer.

The Little Lamb nappy is an average length nappy and if your baby is tall or has the potential to be tall, this might not be the nappy for you unless you’re happy that you might have to buy all three sizes (size 3 available in bamboo or currently organic cotton).

Great value nappy
Friday, 16 March 2018  | 

We have both cotton and bamboo little lambs and they fit my 2 year old perfectly. Very absorbent and comfortable. I don't use the liner that comes with the nappy as although it's soft it doesn't keep my son dry like other liners we have,but apart from that they are great for day or night (with a booster). Very good value for money. A little bulky but I like the big bum look!

Stiff velcro at front

Not a big fan of these. The velcro patch at the front seems - well - really stiff, and probably uncomfortable for the little one (although he can't talk yet so can't prove this...)

Velcro laundry tabs do NOT stay fastened!
Tuesday, 14 November 2017  | 

I purchased 5 of these to use as nighttime nappies (with the daytime ones being the microfibre). The Velcro laundry tabs come undone in the wash and stick to another part of the nappy or other nappies. I have to unstick them to hang them dry. I pop these in the dryer for about 15 minutes after they are dry to soften the cotton a bit and the tabs come undone again so I have to pull them apart again. I find it very irritating. I would not buy these again. I prefer Motherease Sandy's which fasten with snaps.

Excellent Value
Monday, 11 September 2017  | 

These are a great value, they hold a high volume day or night (with a booster). While the bamboo ones have a bit higher capacity (and stay softer in hard water), these dry more quickly, I would say 12-24 hours, depending on weather/room temperature (but not as fast as the microfibre), so good if you need a faster turnover than you can get from bamboo.

Fluffy, absorbent, quick drying
Monday, 18 July 2016  | 

These were recommended for me by The Nappy Lady having completed the questionnaire. They are excellent & suit our washing & drying cycle.

I'm using both cotton & bamboo nappies & much prefer cotton as they dry quicker. If you use bamboo I'd estimate you need more, unless you don't mind washing daily.

It's great to be supporting a British company in Little Lambs!

Poor fit on long baby
Monday, 18 May 2015  | 

These are really bulky on newborn and not the best fit for tall baby (size 1 is too short for my 12lbs boy). I was tempted with the idea of using natural fabric but the nappy is so harsh that it cries for tumble drying. I also have Microfibre version which is much softer but less absorbant (same issue with fitting long baby).

A good buy (great if you have a drier)
Tuesday, 31 March 2015  | 

Very hndy for nappy changes while out & about. The simplicity of the disposable style of nappy, but washable!
Only main downside is that without a tumble drier, the. cotton becomes very stiff/rough.
It does dry fairly quickly if placed by a heater.
I also found that it didn't fit to the upper weight on our tall baby, but otherwise very happy

Wish I had a tumble drier...
Wednesday, 26 November 2014  | 

Unlike the microfibre, these do not come out of the machine nice and soft, but end up crunchy like my towels But the liners are microfibre anyway so the bit against her bum is nice and soft, and we only use these at night.

These are really amazingly absorbent, especially with the cotton booster.

I do seem to be having a problem with the laundry tabs though; I dutifully fold in the laundry tabs on all my nappies but for some reason the ones on the cotton nappies get unstuck in the machine. The tabs on the microfibre ones stay stuck down so I have no idea why this is happening. Also, the softy side of the velcro has started felting up, which is weird. Again, the microfibres' velcro is fine.

If the microfibres were absorbent enough for night time I probably wouldn't want the cotton. But then, maybe if I had a tumble drier I wouldn't want the microfibre.

workhorse nappy
Tuesday, 7 October 2014  | 

We have a mix of these and the bamboo. The bamboo is more absorbent and stays softer in the wash. However, it wouldn't be practical for us to use all bamboo because it takes over a day to dry. Also, I prefer cotton for hot weather.

These are more economical than other fitted nappies - not much more expensive than flats, and they come with a free liner. I also think they're the best size 1 (that I've come across) because a lot of the size 1s don't last very long, not because they stop fitting, but because they're not absorbent enough when baby starts doing serious amounts of pee at about 2/3 months. With these you just add the insert at that point and can use them for another 3-4 months (though not quite up to the weight advertised - my baby outgrew them at 14 pounds, but she's quite long).

Fitted are actually less versatile than flats as you can't choose where the most absorbency is by using the girl of boy fold (my little girl tends to soak the back of the nappy while the front is still dry). However, you can't rely on always being motivated enough to fold, so I would get some of these as well.

The other problem is the bulk. These nappies aren't as slim as some of the other fitteds like tots bots stretchies. But is that really a problem? Isn't that why you're using cloth - for that cute big cloth nappy bum? lol! It's only the really expensive clothes that it won't fit under.

I would only use these nappies during the day. I use bamboo at night.

super absorbent nappy
Tuesday, 7 October 2014  | 

I've been using these size 3 nappies for a few weeks now and am very happy with them. I use them mainly at night but sometimes for a longer spell in the day (naps/journeys) as they are really absorbent. They obviously take a while to line dry but not as long as bamboo nappies - around 24hours hung up inside in a not particularly warm room, plus a bit of time in the airing cupboard. I usually use the airflow XL wrap at night, although any large wrap will fit over it, the Blueberry is particularly good. It is fairly bulky but not ridiculously so.

great for night time
Wednesday, 13 August 2014  | 

I use these at night and the microfiber during the day. They need an extra booster to work effectively but with this I get no leaks even when worn for 12 hours. My little one is quite petite and tho they fit well are very bulky so wouldn't want to wear during the day. Drying time is good, a day on the line or one tumble dry, occasionally the elastic leg part can still be a bit damp but they are much better than the bamboo which took forever and a day!

Great day time nappy
Monday, 21 July 2014  | 

We have been using our Little Lambs Cotton nappies for the past four month, since birth. They are a great day time nappy (we prefer the Little Lamb Bamboo or Tots Bots Bamboozle for night now - they are more absorbent for us now she sleeps through the night). We are very happy with the two-part (nappy and wrap) system and prefer it to a pop-in system as she is a heavy wetter and we have had no leaks (of the poo or wee variety) with Little Lambs. They are slow drying, but we expected that and bought a few extra so we could have some drying while others are in our stash waiting to be used. Even though they do harden a little like towels in hard water the fleece liner has maintained its super softness and feels comfy against our little one's skin. We have noticed that when we do use disposables (if traveling) her bottoms goes red very quickly, we have never had this problem when wearing Little Lambs

Little Lamb Cotton
Friday, 11 July 2014  | 

I've only been using these just over 3 weeks on my baby. They take quite a bit longer to dry than the microfibre ones, but are much better for absorbency so I use these at night and microfibre ones during the day. Using these at night I am using boosters to keep my baby dry longer, and because of this I'm not sure if they will fit up to the weight range they're supposed to, as the nappies are a little short (although my daughter isn't that long the boosters pad them out quite a bit, so I think I might need to go up to the next size of these before I need to go up with the microfibres). They wash well and come out the machine very clean.

Excellent Nappies
Monday, 31 March 2014  | 

Can't fault these nappies so far. We haven't had any leaks and our 8 week old baby seems to find them very comfortable.

The service provided by The Nappy Lady is excellent. We filled out the questionnaire and took the advice given and we have been really pleased with all the nappies we have purchased. Would definitely recommend them and the nappy lady to others.

Brilliant for nighttime use
Wednesday, 25 September 2013  | 

I bought these on the Nappylady's recommendation, to use at night (using the microfibre in the day).
They are really easy to put on, and very absorbent. They are quite bulky but as we only use them at night it's not really a problem. They take longer to dry than the Microfibre, but as long as you're organised that's okay. They do seem too stain more than the Microfibre too, but the stains magically disappear if you hang them outside on the washing line.

Brilliant nappies if you dont mind the bulk!
Sunday, 14 July 2013  | 

I purchased 20 of these nappies on offer, they are truly brilliant at containing EVERYTHING! they are very absorbent, and can last 2-3 hours with a heavy wetter. the only downside to these nappies are the bulk, they are incredibly huge on my slender baby and do restrict her a little, but this may be down to her size. if you want a slim fitting nappy this may not be the one for you, instead i purchased its older sister, LL bamboo, which is much slimmer fitting and just as absorbent.
