Oh Crumbs!
The Ultimate nappies are our Monarch's signature nappy that many turn to as a night-time solution for their heavy wetters. These nappies feature a PUL outer and inner, meaning they are also wipeable and are used by many as a day nappy.
Features of The Ultimate Nappies:
1. Customisable ("Stackable") Absorbency
These nappies come with 4x inserts, with an incredible 16 thirsty layers of Hemp and Bamboo. Stack your inserts to suit babies output and achieve the perfect absorbency for your little one every time. Day, Nap-time or Night nappy, create a custom set up that works perfectly for your babe.
Each nappy comes with the following:
  • 1x 5-layer Hemp insert;
  • 1x 5-layer Bamboo insert; and
  • 2x 3-layer Bamboo ("Nap") insert.
Every bub is different so we encourage you to experiment with absorbency to find what works for your little one. Start with a full set-up, and if at nappy-change times, not all the inserts are soaked, you can remove layers of absorbency. This will ensure you have the trimmest fit possible while still preventing leaks.
If you're unsure of what to use, the following combinations are a good starting point:
  • Day/Nap-time Nappy: Use 1 of the 5-layer inserts - either hemp or bamboo paired with 1 of the 3-layer Nap inserts.
    • Snap the Nap insert onto the larger insert and then into the shell. You can also fold the Nap insert into half / thirds and place it in the "wet zone' which can often help reduce leaks caused by flooding.
  • Night Nappy:
    • If you have a Moderate Wetter, you can get away with using just 2x 5-layer inserts (i.e. snap the 5-layer bamboo insert on top of the 5-layer hemp insert, and then both into the nappy shell).
    • If you have a Heavy Wetter, we recommend using all 3, or even 4 inserts. You can also fold the Nap insert into halves (using the snap) in the middle, or fold it into thirds and place it into the "wet zone".
2. Wipeable Shell To Get Extra Nappy Changes!
The nappy shell (i.e. cover) is made with a waterproof material called PUL, meaning it is wipeable on the inside and out. Generally, you will be able to snap out the soiled insert, wipe down the nappy shell and re-use the shell with a clean insert.
  • This is handy for winter or colder climates as the shell dries much quicker than inserts do. You can also purchase extra insert sets to get a few more nappy-changes out of your nappy
  • The Ultimate shell doubles as a perfect reusable swim nappy - simply remove the inserts when you're ready to hit the water! Rinsing the shell after use will prevent degradation of the PUL and extend the life of your nappy.
We do recommend changing the shell for the following:
  • Poo-splosions or heavy soiling where wee / poo has escaped the inserts and penetrated the leg elastics (i.e. gussets) as otherwise it may cause ammonia burn on the legs; and
  • Night nappies - if you have just used the nappy as a night nappy, we recommend doing a hot wash of the entire nappy (shell along with the inserts) rather than just doing a simple wipe-down. Night nappies are designed to hold a lot of wee, and often the wee will get absorbed into the shell even if it appears dry.
3. Larger, Adjustable, One-Size Fit ~ 4-18kg
  • Still OSFM and adjustable via the front rise and hip snaps
4. Leak-Proof and Maximum Comfort
Monarch's nappies include a few features that allow them to be as leak-proof as possible whilst also ensuring bub's ultimate comfort:
  • Double-gussets: You will notice that there are two leg elastics - one that sits closer to the body and one that is further out. The one that sits closer to the body needs to be tucked into the groin area so that there are no red marks. The outer gusset does not need to sit next to the leg. The extra nappy space is designed to accommodate the extra absorbency needed for night-time once you're no longer changing nappies overnight. The extra gusset also provides an extra barrier of protection against leaks and help to contain those unexpected explosions.
  • PUL tummy and back flaps: The inserts are designed to snap into the shell under the front and back waterproof flaps, to keep the moisture from sitting against bub's skin (stomach and back) for extended periods of time.
  • Thick back elastic: The back elastic is thicker than the usual designs you will find on the market. This is to ensure the nappy sits as trim and as flush as possible against bub's back, to minimise leaks and any discomfort from a thin elastic digging into the back.
6. Choice of Snaps or Velcro closure
We recognise that not all bubs are the same shape, nor will everyone have the same preference. Therefore, we have both Velcro and Snaps on offer.
  • Velcro: Easier to adjust the size (when bub is in-between snaps), and more similar to disposables so more user-friendly. Also great for fitting a night nappy on a non-compliant toddler.
  • Snaps: Great for when bub learns to take off their Velcro nappies and slightly more durable (Velcro is prone to picking up fluff in the wash and looking worn)
This is the nappy for you if...
  • You like the idea of wiping down and reusing the nappy shell to save space in the home and when out and about. The Snap & Wipe system is also perfect for travelling with cloth;
  • You have a super heavy wetter and you need the extra absorbency especially at night-time;
  • You prefer to have a nappy that can take you from Day to Night without needing a dedicated night nappy;
  • You have a baby who may exceed 17kg before he/she toilet trains;
  • You like the idea of not having to buy a dedicated swim nappy
  • You just need a long lasting, comfortable nappy cover. The Ultimate shell makes the perfect cover for flats, pre-folds and fitted nappies.
If you answered "Yes" to any of the above, this is the nappy for you!

Your wash | dry routine is integral to maintaining the lifespan of your nappies and helps to keep your nappies in tip top condition.

Below is a generic outline only and we recommend that you follow the wash instructions specified by each brand and read all about what NOT to use on your cloth nappies!  

Washing your new nappies? Read what to do here.

* 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) *

Pre-treat stains if required. Spray or soak in stain remover (Vanish/ Sard or equivalent). More about stain removers can be found here.

*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

*A full load is recommended for the best agitation and clean. Pad out the load with tea towels or clothing if required.

*Most brands recommend a main wash every other day 

*A full load is recommended for the best agitation and clean. Pad out the load with tea towels or clothing if required.

* If you follow a good wash routine and wash at the correct temperatures, then barrier creams will wash out! More details here.

Detergent: Most of our stocked brands recommend a good quality main stream detergent. Here at TCS we alternate between OMO Ultimate, OMO Sensitive & Biozet Attack Regular Laundry Liquids.....whatever happens to be on sale at the time! Woolworths and Coles regularly offer half price sales on these brands so keep your eye out for the sales. Prefer a more natural solution? Then look no further than Kin Kin Eco Laundry liquid which is available here.

Spin cycles: Do not spin over 800rpm
Hang indoors if there is no shade available. This will prolong the integrity & quality of your PUL (Waterproof lining). Hanging covers |shells horizontally length wise across the line can minimise elastics stretching
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. A dryer can be used on the lowest setting for covers/ shells IF recommended by the manufacturer. Wait until the covers/ shells are cold before stretching elastics
