The dreaded number three.
Whatever you call it, I can guarantee you hate it. There’s nothing like smelling a dirty nappy and picking up your baby to find out it’s not just the nappy that is dirty. If you’re lucky, the poo has only escaped onto your baby’s lower back. But if you aren’t so lucky, you may be cleaning up their legs, back, and maybe even their head. Yuck! Nobody wants to be cleaning up such messes, which is why the Seedling Baby Multifit pocket nappy is so good. These nappies do just what they are made to do, and will make poosplosions a thing of the past!
The Seedling nappy has rise snaps on the front, so you can adjust the size as your baby grows. Snapped to its smallest, the nappy will easily fit a 4kg infant. At its largest, you’ll have no trouble fitting it on your 16kg toddler. Handy, right?
Your Seedling nappy has three parts: a bamboo insert, a microfibre insert, and the waterproof shell. The shell is soft, breathable, and has a wide opening (pocket) in the back, into which you place the trifold and microfibre. The microfibre insert works to draw in liquid quickly, so no moisture will sit on the surface of the nappy and potentially leak. The main insert (Diversifold) is a 70/30 blend of bamboo and cotton, providing great absorbency to hold even the biggest of toddler wees. When used together, the two pieces create a fast absorbing, incredibly thirsty insert. This makes them great for using when you know you may not be able to change as frequently as normal – nap times or road trips, for example.
This is a fancy way of saying they have two elastic layers at the legs. Why? Because it helps prevent leaks by ensuring a great fit on both tiny newborn legs and chunky toddler legs! Only the inner gusset sits against the leg, and the outer gusset adds a second layer of leak-protection. It also allows for the addition of extra boosters without compromising the fit of the nappy.
The soft but secure elastic in the waistband is what prevents the poosplosions from escaping out the back of the nappy. You know what this means, the really gross part of cleaning up will no longer have to happen!
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but we can all agree that Seedling’s prints are beautiful! Choose from a range of hand-painted designs or classy solid colours, or get a 7 pack that contains both!
Life is messy. Parenting is messier. And no parent wants to deal with more poo than absolutely necessary! With a Seedling nappy, you can be assured that your nappy will do what it’s meant to do and contain all the mess. No more wee leaks, no more number threes, no more outfit changes at the most inconvenient of times. Just a cute nappy for your cute little one, and peace of mind (and clean hands!) for you.
We can’t believe it’s 2018 already, but we’re ready and raring to go. And with the hottest days of summer still ahead of us, we’re already planning on how to beat the heat for our families so as to stay cool, and happy!
1. Stay hydrated
The number one rule of summer is to stay hydrated! The Australian government recommend a litre per day for children aged 1-3, and 2 litres for their mummas. Make sure your nappy bag always includes some water for everyone. Our Frank Green water bottles are leak proof, so you can toss them in your bag and go!
2. Protect yo’ self
Sun protection is so incredibly important in our harsh Australian summers. Sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses help protect us for the sun’s UV rays, and is definitely worth the “But I don’t wanna wear it!” battles we all go through at one time or another with our children!
3. Make a splash
You can’t go wrong with a bit of water play. Whether you hit the local pool, or head out to a nearby water play area, or even just play in the backyard while you water the garden. Don’t forget to pack baby’s swim nappy so they can splash too!
4. A cool bite
There’s nothing more refreshing than a cool treat at the end of a hot day. Or, let’s be real, in the middle and the end of a hot day. Using our Sinchies Pops makes it so easy to freeze your own ice block creations, ready to crunch and suck on the next hot day.
5. Use the right carrier
Babywearing does not need to stop in summer! Using a lighter weight wrap or a carrier with a mesh panel helps keep everyone just that little bit cooler. We love to use a ring sling in summer because they’re thinner and there’s only one layer of fabric over bubs. A cooling towel makes a great addition to any carrier also – and can keep both you and bubs cooler.
