Little Lamb Organic Cotton nappies are made of organic cotton and were introduced due to demand from parents and are manufactured from certified GOTS organic yarn. They are cream, 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 Lamb shaped nappies 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 Lamb 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).

Size 1 fits babies from around 7lbs - 20lbs (3kgs - 9kgs)
The size 2 fits babies from around 20lbs-38lbs (9kgs -17kgs)

*Please note that while the main fabric is organic cotton there will be some polyester content due to fabric weave, elastics and velcro tabs.  The free fleece liner that comes with each nappy can be left out and paper liners used if you prefer.

Little Lamb Care Guide

Store dirty nappies in the nappy pail, separating any washable boosters, inserts or liners and closing the Velcro tabs over on themselves.  When you have a load ready, put them in the washer on a 40˚ wash with half the recommended dose of detergent, give them an extra rinse and air dry. That's all there is to it.

Here are a few tips:                         

- Dry pail the nappies.
- Soiled nappies should be washed regularly. Do not leave soiled nappies for longer than three days.
- Check the Velcro tabs are closed tightly on the nappies. Wash our wraps velcroed closed but inside out. Boosters and inserts are best removed from pocket nappies prior to washing.
- We advise washing at 40˚.

The above is all most parents need to know but for the few parents who need it we've included the sum of our knowledge below:

Detergent: In our opinion powder detergents dissolve quicker and rinse better leading to cleaner laundry.

Dosage: We advise starting with half the recommended dose of detergent for the load size and water hardness and working up from there. The amount of detergent needed is dependent on load size, machine type and water hardness. Soft water needs less detergent to be effective and hard water needs more - possibly up to a full recommended dose.

Fabric softener: Do not use fabric softener in your nappy wash - it will coat the fibres and inhibit absorption.

Sanitisers: We do not recommend using sanitisers with your nappy wash. Sanitisers will affect the elastic and Velcro components and shorten the life of your nappies.

Drying: Drying nappies in direct sunshine is best. Placing them by, but not touching, a heat source is effective but do not place them directly on radiators as they may scorch. Avoid using a tumble drier where possible; if you do use a tumble dryer make sure it's on the low heat setting. Do not tumble dry wraps or pocket nappies.

So soft, absorbent and feel good
Wednesday, 9 September 2020  | 

We love these, they are so soft. One of the main points of using reusables is environmental. These require more care and time to clean and keep in good order, but they are organic don't produce microplastics when washed. To keep them soft I've found that they require fluffing in a dryer when they are nearly dry, otherwise they become course and rough!
