How do you use
CLOTH DIAPERS?

If you are wondering about how to use cloth diapers, in this section of our website you will find many useful tips to discover how to employ them in a simple way.
Zero Waste means reducing as much as possible all the wastefulness and the garbage production until zeroing them. This means optimizing the production of goods and reusing what we already have, trying to avoid as much as possible that act (become nearly compulsive in our modern society) of throwing away and buying and continuing so again and again. You can choose the fabric and the model you prefer for your baby. Teby Fitted or Culla di Teby nappy? Let’s see how to use them…

How do you use Culla di Tebys cloth diapers?

1

Follow the instructions and wash the absorbent parts before first use

2

Choose the right size for your child (S 2,5-5 kgs; M 4,5-11 Kgs; L 9-15 kgs; XL 12 + kgs)

3

Choose the right absorbent pad, you can use the washable pad, the disposable inserts or the swim absorbent pad for the swimming pool.

4

Add a flushable nappy liner and it will be easier to change the nappy in case of poop.

How do you choose the right size?

1

If you want to start using our cloth nappies immediately after the childbirth, we suggest you to use the Newborn Small size that fits approximately from 2,5 to 5 kgs

2

If you prefer to wait some weeks, start with the Medium size that will fit the baby approximately from 4.5 to 11 kgs

3

If your baby is older, maybe one year old, you can use the Large size that fits approximately from 9 to 15 kgs.

4

Does your baby have high weight percentiles? Does he have chubby thighs? Choose a loose fitting, maybe an XL size will fit sooner than you think.

5

Not all babies wear all sizes during their growth, most of them use only the main sizes!

How do you put a cradle shaped cloth diapers on a baby?

1

Insert the absorbent pad in the cradle, pull the shorter ends to “lock” it, press the insert with one hand on the bottom of the cradle and pull upward the barriers around the thighs.

2

Make a test, if the absorbent pad has been inserted correctly, when you lift and shake gently the nappy the insert will not move.

3

Close the flaps on the back without tightening too much.

4

Remember that our logo should be on the baby’s bottom.

5

Check that the nappy fits snugly around the thighs and guide outwards the little white barriers; if needed, hold them with your hand and pull gently towards you the whole nappy, in this way it will be looser on the thighs.

6

Check the backside, the cradle should be lower than the waistband.

How do you change a cloth nappy?

1

Change your Teby cloth nappy every 2-4 hours to have a happy and dry child

2

When it is beddy-bye time you can insert two absorbent pads to have extra absorbency, try to mix different sizes and textiles to find the right combination for your needs. If during the night there is some little leakage even using two absorbent inserts, choose Teby Fitted cloth nappy.

3

When you have to change your baby’s nappy, you can change only the absorbent pad and rub a wet cloth on the cradle before placing a new insert.

4

If only the cradle gets soiled, you can detach it from the baby pants or change the whole cloth nappy.

How many cloth nappies do you need?

1

The number of nappies you will need depends on your choice, you can use only cloth nappies or mix their employment with that of traditional diapers.

We suggest to have about three absorbent inserts for every cover or pair of baby pants

Newborns drink a lot and they need many diaper changes, up to 9-10 per day, but remember, they grow quickly and weaned babies need about 5-6 changes during the day.
