Product Details

Nappy Overview

Little Lamb bamboo nappies are incredibly soft and extremely absorbent. They are also a fantastic price for a sized nappy system. The Little Lamb Bamboo is the best selling Little Lamb nappy, however Little Lamb are also available in Cotton.

Little Lamb Bamboo reusable nappies come with a double layer bamboo viscose 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 bamboo is a perfect choice as a nighttime use nappy when used with an additional booster.

Little Lamb bamboo reusable nappies are incredibly absorbent however it is also an extremely SLOW drying reusable nappy. If you do not have a tumble drier as backup it would be a very good idea to have a mix of Little Lamb nappies so that you have some of the faster drying Little Lamb Cotton or alternatively the superfast drying Bambinex Teddy nappy.

 

Sizing

Little Lamb fitted nappies offer 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 bamboo come in three sizes but the vast majority of children will only need the first 2 sizes.

  • Size 1 fits 9-18lbs with loose booster
  • Size 2 17-35lbs with sewn in booster
  • Size 3 35lbs+ with sewn in booster

The Little Lamb nappy is a short 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 you might have to buy all three sizes.

How do I use it?

All Little Lamb nappies fasten with Velcro making them extremely simple to use. The tabs on all the Little Lamb 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.

You must use a waterproof cover over the top of the Little Lamb bamboo as it does not have any built in waterproof layer. The Motherease Airflow is the most popular wrap choice.

Nappy Fabric

Bamboo viscose is extremely absorbent however it does have a tendency to shrink when woven into nappies. Little Lamb bamboo nappies now have their bamboo viscose knitted into a fine microfibre fabric therefore creating a non- shrinking non- pull bamboo nappy.

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 30˚ 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 the wraps with the velcro closed but inside out. Boosters and inserts are best removed from pocket nappies prior to washing.
- We advise washing at 30˚.

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.

 

Little Lamb Warranty

All Little Lamb products are guaranteed against manufacturing defects for 6 months from purchase, as long as care guidelines have been followed.

Use of the following will void warranty:

  • Nappy sanitisers (Napisan etc.)
  • Bleach, bleaching products (Oxy 10, vanish etc.)
  • Vinegar.
  • Washing soda, borax or bicarbonate of Soda.
  • Fabric softener.
  • Limescale removing  products (Calgon etc)
  • Dishwasher tablets.
  • Ecover, feedback of poor results, difficult to rinse thoroughly leaving residue and causing issues.

Little Lamb's decision on any warranty claim is final.

Size 2 - difficult to manage flap
Rating:
12 February 2024  | 

We got a size 1 with the trial box and really liked how comfortable and soft it was, but by 1 year it was a little tight.

We went up to size 2 expecting the same nappy, but there is the addition of a long and difficult to manage flap. It’s an attached booster, I think.

The flap gathers up and twists inside the nappy when the baby is walking around and looks quite uncomfortable. It also adds an extra challenge during nappy changes with a wriggly baby. We are considering cutting the flap out, but this will reduce absorbency.

We have also found the Velcro edges can rub on her hips if we’re not very very careful about positioning - also quite difficult with a wriggly baby.

As stated in the description, these do take a long time to dry. This can’t be overstated they take a very long time to dry.

They were super cheap, so overall I am quite happy, but I wouldn’t buy any more than our current stash.

So far these are our go to Night time nappy. No leaks and not caused any skin irritation. Overall a good fit on out super slim but long boy. Will definitely buy bigger sizes as we grow. Only downside to these are the Velcro tabs, sometimes come undo in the wash. Great service from the Nappy lady, delivered quick and well packaged.

Great and highly absorbent
Rating:
03 September 2022  | 

We have been using these as night nappies for my son and so far have had no leaks, however he is only 3 month old so I don’t know how well they will fair when he’s older. However, he is a heavy wetter over night and they seem bomb proof! I would highly recommend as a night nappy or when on a long journey/ day out. We use with a little lamb wrap which works well for us. He is on the chunkier side and they fit well. Only given it 4 stars as they do become quite tough and occasionally need a tumble dry after we line dry them to soften them which works well. The Velcro is good but sometimes seems a little less sticky unless in exactly the right place. I’m hoping that as he fills out a bit this won’t be a problem. Definitely worth purchasing if you want high absorbency and great containment!

Brilliant budget nappy
Rating:
19 August 2022  | 

Little lamb bamboo nappies are one of my favourite and most absorbent nappies which I used in the early days in two part systems for containment and poonami proofing on my newborn during day nappies, and use at night currently. I also used size twos for flooding wees as the first nappy of the day and as night nappies on my eldest for a long time.

I’ve dropped a star for sizing. For me and my daughters on the 25-50th centiles these are nappies which will last a long time. However any tall/75th centile and above the length of time parents will get out of size one or two will be less and not as financially economical.

You can combine this with any wraps. I found sock marks were more common with a baby who was slightly chunkier (my eldest) with little lamb wraps but found combining with an airflow or fleece/wool wrap stopped any sock marks. The great thing about these little lamb wraps is they are versatile in terms of when you can use them and what you can combine with them - they are a fantastic all rounder and one of my favourite nappies in both cloth nappy journeys.

So soft
Rating:
09 June 2022  | 

I absolutely love this nappy! Bought as LG was leaking through her previous night nappies AND they were struggling to fit round her waist despite being the correct size for her weight (19 lb 5oz, 75th centile). So sized up and tried a different brand. I highly recommend. They're easy to put on, last through the night with one night feed, and feel so soft!
I also definitely could have bought the size down for her as these have oodles of room in them for her.

We’ve been using size 1 little lambs nappies at night for my daughter since she was 1 month old and they were great. These however are even more soft and squishy meaning she can have the padding without the limited leg movement. Very impressed.

We researched nappies carefully and with trepidation before investing in a birth to potty kit. I am so, so pleased we went with Little Lamb. These nappies take everything in their stride, from explosive breastfed nappies to soaking up everything our heavy wetter deposits into them, day or night. They work beautifully with the Little Lamb wraps. These are our trusty, everyday nappy and we love them!

They do take a long time to dry. We've found various workarounds to help get them to dry, and to make sure we have back up nappies in our stash (turns out Terry nappies are an easy, absorbent alternative, perfect for nights - who knew?!) They also do go crisp in hardwater areas but reading up on best ways to wash will help you keep these nappies soft and a pleasure to use.

We love natural fibres and big cotton bottoms! For anyone looking for a slim fit and something akin to disposable style these might not be the nappy for you. I think LL is a nice hybrid between old and new - the modern day, no fold, no fuss, Terry nappy.

Had various interactions with Little Lamb directly and found them friendly and flawlessly helpful.

Soft and comfortable despite multiple washes, velcro is durable and elastics haven't given a bit. Lasts all nigit if needed, excellent containment and comes with a soft and fluffy liner. Only comment would be they come up quite short so we had to size up early.

Super absorbent and super soft
Rating:
13 December 2021  | 

The only reason I am giving a 4/5 is because little lambs fitted nappies come up short. My little girl is 21 months and a dainty 23lb yet I have had to go up to size 3 (35lb+) as she is just a bit too tall for her size 2s now. However, her size 2s also fitted her way before the weight range meaning she wore them from 6months to 20 months which really is great for a sized nappy. I love the fact that these nappies stay so soft even in my hard water area and are absorbent enough for my daughter to go 12 hours at night. My size 2s never lost elasticity and the Velcro is perfect still. The fleece liner they come with is fluffy and large so covers all but the hip area making her feel dry all night long. I would recommend these to any one with a heavy wetting little one.

Night Time Miracle!
Rating:
02 December 2021  | 

This was the first reusable nappy I bought after using disposables for my first child. I really wanted to change to cloth, and although this nappy is perhaps a bit bulky for the daytime (size 2), it is perfect for the night. My second child would always wet through disposables, her vest, babygrow, sleeping bag and sheets. The little lamb bamboo shaped nappy has put an end to that - thank you!!

They do take an age to dry, but it's worth it for baby and parents to have a fairly peaceful night without disturbing the whole family for a nappy change!

Lovely soft, fluffy nappies. These were part of our first sizeable new nappy purchase and we’re well worth it. They come with very soft liners (I think to keep baby dry?) and are great. Do take a while to dry so I may need to buy a couple more for winter.

Really good absorbency
Rating:
06 October 2021  | 

Really happy with these nappies. I use them for night and day. Yes, they need a long time to dry, but they are reliable, no leaks! Great discounts and offers from LL too. I won't waste my money on other pocket nappies from now on. They are bulky, but the pocket nappies are too ones you boost them, so no difference to me. And I finally don't have to change all the clothes for each nappy change! The bamboo version remains softer than the cotton one and as drying time I don't see much of a difference to be honest. You won't be disappointed with these LL nappies!

We have used all sizes of these nappies throughout our little ones nappy time, now just for night nappies. Good absorbency and containment depending on wrap, only issue is the velcro tabs don't hold fast during the the wash and have a tendency to unfasten and attach to anything and everything, even the new ones so it's not lint build up.

Great night nappy sistem, I wish I'd bought them earlier! I will definitely use them with my next child from much earlier on. I have just one complaint, I did't know that there were the fleece liners already included in every nappy, otherwise I would not have bought an extra 10 fleece liners.

Soft fabric, vet slow drying
Rating:
13 October 2020  | 

Very nice feel, but became quickly more rough after a few washes. Drying is very slow.
The shaped nappy system is also not comfortable for the baby, to whom one must fit two parts of a nappy.
I also don’t like the fact that LL makes them in Turkey, instead of the UK/EU.

Great absorbancy but dodgy velcro
Rating:
03 October 2020  | 

We already use these so knew to expect a great level of absorbancy but unfortunately the Velcro has already become lose as the stitching has come out. Means they aren't as secure but once the wrap is over the top to hold them in place they work ok. Pity because I have 3 from a previous older batch that are still perfect.

Loved these until baby grew tall
Rating:
15 September 2020  | 

These were my favourite newborn nappy (I also had Terry Squares and Bumgenius all-in-ones). I used them with a Motherease Airflow wrap and they combined top containment, neat looks (and cute with the wrap) and low-to-medium faff (very easy to get on, just a two-part system so a bit more than an all-in-one). I used them night and day and found them good for 12-15hrs with my newborn overnight. If I were starting again with what I know now, I would have more shaped nappies and fewer all-in-ones, as the containment is so much better. My baby is tall, so outgrew size 1 quite quickly and moved into bambinex, as recommended by the nappy lady for tall babies, which are also great. I have found drying times for shaped bamboo nappies to vary between an afternoon outdoors on the line on a great drying day to 18-30hrs on a heated airer indoors and 2 days on an ordinary airer on a cold day.

We’ve always loved the little lamb bamboos-perfect under a wool wrap with a nice fat booster for nighttime’s. Would say they’re a little small (especially if you occasionally tumble dry them-we live in the wettest part of England-don’t judge us!) do take an age to dry so I may end up buying more!

Little Lamb bamboo nappy
Rating:
26 December 2019  | 

This is a great nappy that soaks lots of urine. It easily last around 5 hours with no additional booster, only the one that is attached to it. It also comes with its own liner, which is really soft.
The size 2 is a perfect fit for our 18 months old who is of average height and weight.
It becomes a bit coarse after washing, but with the liner it should feel okay when on. It does take a long time to dry, on an airer it's approximately a day and half.
We use it with the blueberry capri wrap and it fits great with no leaks.
These nappies were recommended by the Nappy Lady and I cannot fault them, as well as the service which was excellent.

Love these nappies which we’ve used since birth (born just under 7lb). They’re super soft and don’t leave marks on baby’s legs. We also have some bamboozles but always reach for these first. So far seem to be pretty bombproof under a wrap. I find they are almost dry in24 hours then i I finish then in the tumble dryer. Great value too, would recommend.

Disappointed with these
Rating:
15 October 2019  | 

I got an entire supply of these 2 years before consulting nappy lady and her recommendation. Good value and price. However, size 1 barely fits my newborn. The top nappy edge and velcro is hard and has repeatedly caused chafing of the front abdominal skin as tightening the nappy (for a smaller baby) causes the extremely wide and hard velcro to slant inwards into the skin (same applies to the LL wraps). The velcro tabs are also unnecessarily bulky. In my opinion, the totsbots stretch are much better as it is less bulky and well-fitting. (Size 2 totsbots fit both my newborn and 2 year old perfectly).

These bamboo nappies are soft and easy to use. I also have some of the cotton nappies and I find these bamboo ones actually dry more quickly and are easier to fit. They absorb well and we’ve only had a couple of leaks, though that’s probably because we’ve left the nappy on too long. Would definitely recommend. Excellent advice also provided by The Nappy Lady!

Using these at night with an airflow wrap over the top. The size 1 are a great size for my baby who was 6lb 6oz at birth. Never had a leak and he seems comfortable. We use a fleece liner as they're a little scratchy due to living in a hard water area. Don't take too long to dry and aren't too bulky.

I have been using this nappy with a booster for night time for my toddler. I've had no leaks unlike with disposables and they have been great! I don't find they take as long to dry as other people have experienced, I can usually get them dry within a day. Would definitely recommend as a good night or day time nappy.
