Alcmena v1.5
  • Alcmena v1.5

    This is the nappy for you if...

    • You want to use cloth nappies from birth, but would prefer not to invest in Newborn nappies;
    • You prefer a trimmer nappy, especially to fit under clothes;
    • Your baby is a light to moderate wetter so you don't need heaps of absorbency (especially at night);
    • You prefer a pocket nappy that has a stay-dry layer

    If you answered "Yes" to any of the above, this is the nappy for you! 

    1. Customisable Absorbency

    These nappies come with 2x inserts that equate to 10 layers of absorbency. Each nappy comes with the following: 

    • 1x 5-layer Hemp (hourglass) insert; and
    • 1x 5-layer Bamboo (rectangular) insert 

    Use one or the other, or both to achieve the perfect absorbency for your little one! 

    Some quick tips: 

    • If using both inserts together, we recommend snapping the Bamboo onto the Hemp insert (as Bamboo absorbs a little bit quicker than Hemp). 
    • If using the rise snaps, we recommend not snapping the inserts in at the front (only the back, if at all) so that the inserts don't pull the front of the nappy down). 

    2. Stay-Dry Pocket Lining

    These nappies feature an athletic-jersey ("AWJ") pocket lining. By stuffing the insert(s) into the pocket, you can experience all the benefits of AWJ as it draws away the moisture and keeps your baby's bottom cool and dry. 

    3. Double-Ended Pocket Openings

    It is super easy to stuff these nappies with its wide pocket opening at the front and back! Stuffing nappies has never been easier!

    4. Tummy Elastic

    Generally a tummy gap is fine, but these nappies will get you that extra awesome fit with a tummy elastic that minimises that gap! 

    5. Double Gussets

    The built-in double gussets on the jersey lining provides an extra barrier against any explosions escaping from these nappies. 

    6. Front and Back PUL Flaps

    The front and back flaps are waterproof PUL so that any moisture is channelled up and under the flap, keeping your bub's tummy and back nice and dry. 

    7. One-Size-Fits Most

    These are a slightly trimmer nappy than the Alcmena v3.5 'Wipe Clean' style nappy, fitting from 3-17kg. The shell is slightly smaller as it does not need to accommodate as much absorbency, and is perfect for achieving a trim fit without a lot of bulk.
