“ Brand: Nature Babycare / Type: Nappies „
I don't use 2 part nappies often, but when I do my wrap of choice is always Nature Babies! Not only are they very attractive ( we have at least 3 different patterns for each of my children and I'm tempted by several more!)but I can never fault their performance.
Time and again I find this fantastic on containment and fit. The containment issue can be tricky to solve, especially with a breastfed newborn who poos often, but this wrap never lets me down. I can't always say the same for the nappy underneath it so knowing I have a backup is great. The leg gussets are snug and the many popper options lets you make it secure on a variety of shapes and sizes. I love them on my toddler too as they don't feel bulky under her clothes, or stiff like some other wraps can be. I also love letting her loose with just a nappy on when she's wearing these wraps as they're so cute!
I have been trialling a velcro version, which I prefer over poppers, but on the whole I find the poppers give a better fit in this case.
I notice no one has reviewed Nature Babies Multiwraps - this is a travesty!! I am here to help.
As you will see from one of my previous reviews, I use Motherease Onesize reusable nappies on my daughter and have been very pleased with them and their wraps. There does however come a time when you feel that you want something a little bit more funky for your little one's bum (motherease wraps are a bit dull), and this is where Nature Babies wraps come in...
I found them on the website www.kittykins.co.uk which is a very easy to navigate website and it also does lots of other makes of nappies & accessories, but I've found it to be the best stockist for Nature Babies.
The wraps that I am going to describe are called a 'MULTIWRAP' which I think is a fairly new addition to their collection but it really is a lovely wrap. Available in 3 sizes - small (8-14lb), medium (14-25lb) & large (22-35lb).
It is slightly different to their original wraps as there is no elastication around the waist which makes it more comfortable, so is ideally suited for an older baby - one who can at least sit up on their own and therefore this wrap will not dig into their little fat tummy (the main reason for me buying it actually was because my daughter's stomach seemed to be so huge and other wraps (especially Velcro ones) seemed to dig right in when she sat up). It has adjustable poppers at each side of the waist (4 settings on each), and the same again around both legs, so as your baby grows you just adjust the wrap to fit. The legs also have a gusset for extra reliability.
These are made from a lovely soft fabric (PUL) which is fully waterproof but also breathable so your baby's bum doesn't sweat. They come in a variety of really vibrant designs, or you can opt for plain colours - whichever suits you. I ended up with a mixture of both - I wanted some pretty pink ones for my girl (gingham and bubbles), but then I also got a blue denim one and a few plain yellow and green ones (in case the next baby is a boy and they can be passed on).
I just wash them with my normal clothes at 30 degrees and they dry really quickly. So depending on how often you wash, you would probably need 4 or 5 of these to keep you in good supply, unless your baby has an explosive bottom, then more may be required.
At £8.25 each (plus £1.50 delivery from kittykins) they are quite pricey but it's worth it for your baby to have a cute little botty. And of course they last really well, I should hope I will be using them on the next baby so I think it's money well spent.
I can also recommend the 'Popper Wraps' from Nature Babies as well as I have also tried these. Very similar to the Multiwrap but with elastication around the waist, and just generally more poppers for a more adjustable fit.
Side snaps allow for adjustable and comfortable fit. Available in three sizes.
