PRODUCT INFORMATION

Have a GORGEOUS CHUNKY MONKEY that has those beautiful chubby leg rolls? When we poured over nappy reviews looking for the most frequently recommended nappies for chunky monkeys, these 5 nappies were top of the list, they were also voted as the 5 most suitable options by our Facebook VIP group. While some preferred larger shells to accommodate those rolls, others raved about the side snapping options that allow for a more custom fit around the legs. So find out for yourself which ones you prefer......fingers crossed you will find your perfect chunky monkey fit from one of these 5 fabulous options. 

The By Jecca nappies are sized, so if you feel like your little one is somewhere in-between two sizes please add a note on your order to include both. We are happy to throw in an extra nappy to make sure you find your perfect fit! * The Security Bond will be increased to cover the additional nappy*

WASHING GUIDELINE

Your wash/dry routine is integral to maintaining the lifespan of your nappies. Below is a generic outline only and we recommend that you follow the wash instructions specified by each brand (links included below)

WASH ROUTINE

STEP 1: Remove solids. Plonk straight into the toilet (or other method of your choosing) then rinse under HOT water. 

Skip this step for pee nappies!

Pre-treat stains if required

* Note: Some brands recommend rinsing all nappies as soon as they come off to help prevent the build-up of ammonia smell  

* Night nappies tend to be the smelliest due to the higher concentration and quantity of urine they withhold. A thorough hand-rinse in hot water with detergent, in the morning, is recommended *(but here at TCS we do our daily prewash as soon as the morning nappies come off to avoid this step) *

STEP 2 : Dry pail. Use a storage solution with holes for aeration. The better the ventilation flow around your soiled nappies the less your nappies will smell (crazy right!). Also helps to keep your nappies in tip top condition.

STEP 3: Pre-wash. Use a short cycle with half of the amount of recommended detergent for a heavy soiled load.

*removes bulk of soiling here to allow the main wash to be done in clean water

*most brands recommend a daily pre-wash on the nappies used within the last 24hrs

STEP 4: Main Wash. Use the longest cycle on your machine with the full amount of recommended detergent for a heavy soiled load. Water temp up to 60°C

*most brands recommend a main wash every other day 

 

Detergent: Most of our stocked brands recommend a good quality main stream detergent 

Spin cycles: Do not spin over 800rpm

DRYING
Line Dry: The most eco friendly & economical option is to line dry. Consider how the nappies are hung to prevent elastics from stretching, most brands recommend hanging horizontally length wise across the line. Hang covers/ shells in the shade or indoors
Dryer: A dryer can be used on the lowest setting for covers/ shells
* Wait until the covers/ shells are cold before stretching elastics
* Note that the lifespan of your nappy may be reduced with extensive exposure to the dryer. If possible use the dryer for inserts, prefolds and fitteds only and line dry the covers/ shells

 

WASHING NEW NAPPIES
STEP 1: Soak. Soak the absorbent components of your new nappies overnight to increase their absorbency.
STEP 2: Wash. Wash all nappy components at least once in warm water prior to use
* Most brands state that it will take 6-8 washes for your nappies to reach maximum absorbency. If you are using them after only one wash just be aware that you may need to change them more frequently

 

USING BARRIER CREAMS
Barrier creams should wash out in hot water with good quality detergent, however using a liner (disposable or re-usable) is a good idea to prevent build up on the nappy. Barrier cream, like fabric softener coats the nappy fabric causing them to repel rather than absorb

 

STAIN REMOVERS/ WASH AIDS
* The use of chlorine bleach may void the manufacturer's warranty if used incorrectly. Check each manufacturer's advice prior to using bleach as some advise against it
* Most suppliers state that stain removers such as Napisan/ Vanish may be used as a stain treatment prior to wash or used in the wash as long as you use the stain remover as per the product's instructions

 

WHAT NOT TO USE ON YOUR NAPPIES
Fabric Softener. Fabric softener coats the fibres of the fabric causing them to repel rather than absorb
Vinegar. Vinegar may breakdown components of your nappy
