When to use two inserts?

Around 3-6 months time when babies tend to wee more, one insert may not be enough. When bub is saturating the first insert, it's time to add another to boost absorbency. You can also use these inserts later on as boosters for one-sized nappies. 

How many nappies do I need?

You will need around 25-30 nappies if you are washing them every other day. Newborn nappies need to be changed every 2-3 hours. It is ok to start small before investing in a huge stash. 

How do I prep the nappies?

Soak the inserts overnight. Wash with detergent prior to use. Make sure to close laundry tabs to protect your nappies and other clothes from sticking into the velcro.

How to wash the nappies?

1. Remove soiling

2. Prewash-  warm cycle, 40° Celsius (do not exceed 60°), 30-60 min

3. Main wash- warm cycle, 40° Celsius (do not exceed 60°), 1-2 hrs

4. Line dry shells in shade (DO NOT TUMBLE DRY), inserts can be machine or line dried 


We offer a six month warranty on all of the nappies we stock from your date of purchase. This covers any loose, broken or missing snaps, stitching faults or defects on workmanship. This does not cover pilling, stains, odours. See full details here





All babies come in different shapes and sizes. You may find that one brand of cloth nappy may fit your bub better than others. Some babies are also more heavy-wetting than others. To help you troubleshoot nappy leaks, here is a short guide on why they may be leaking and some recommendations on how to fix it. 

Hold on, have you prepped your nappy inserts?

If your inserts are new, make sure to wash them before use. Like fresh towels, washing them fluffs up the fibres and makes them more absorbent. Microfibre inserts need to be only washed once. Hemp and bamboo, which have natural oils, need to be prepped. Soak them overnight if short of time. They will reach their full absorbency after a few washes. Change nappies more frequently during this time.

Getting the fit right

Make sure that the fit is snug without any gaps. The nappy should be sitting on the underwear line. If there is any gap in the legs, you will get leaks. Same with the waist and the back of the nappy - adjust the rise setting accordingly. A lot of leaks occur due to the nappy not being tight enough. If you have a boy, make sure that his private part is pointing downwards.

Also make sure that all fabric material/ inserts are tucked in to avoid wicking.

Making sure you have enough absorbency

The fabrics of your inserts have different levels of absorption. Microfibre, absorbs very fast but can become saturated and cause leaks when they are compressed. By 3-6 months, you definitely need more than one insert.

If you have Alva Baby or Mama Koala microfibre inserts, try pairing them with either bamboo or hemp which has a greater capacity to hold liquids. As hemp and bamboo are slower absorbing fabrics, you place these underneath your microfibre insert. You can purchase additional inserts here. 

Leaks at night - depending on your baby's age, day nappies like Alva Baby / Mama Koala will not have enough absorbency to last through the whole night. Try adding a third booster for light to moderate wetters. There are also dedicated night nappies which have layers upon layers of absorbency. These are much bulky but the absorbent layers are necessary to keep the nappy from leaking.


Waterproofing - Looking after your shells & covers

Drying them on high heat and even excessive exposure from the hot sun can delaminate/ damage the waterproof layer of your nappies. Make sure to follow the recommendation from the nappy's manufacturer. Shells and covers dry quicker than inserts so you can just line dry them in the shade.

Detergent Buildup

Too much detergent in your wash and using fabric conditioners may reduce the absorbency of your nappies. The fabric becomes repellant and less water or urine is absorbed causing your nappies to leak. Wash your nappies on a hot cycle with detergent followed by additional rinses. 

Still getting leaks or struggling with the fit? You can always try an alternative brand or a different style of nappy, as babies fit each nappy differently.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
