Disana reusable nappy/diaper instructions

Posted by Becky (Special Little Shop) on

Nappy changing guidance from disana


This is what you will need:

  • Tie On Knitted Nappy. This is the actual nappy/diaper. Made of pure cotton, it absorbs most of the fluid and retains it inside its fibers.
  • Brushed cotton liner. Also made of cotton, it absorbs the remaining moisture and keeps the baby dry for a long period of time.
  • Paper fleece liner. Used on top of the cotton liner, this will retain the heaviest soiling.
  • Woollen overpants. This provides the watertight outer covering for the diaper. Made from soft, pure sheep’s wool, it absorbs without itself ever becoming wet.
1. Using disana nappy is very simple. Spread out the knitted nappy on the changing mat. Fold the narrow front part back to the ties. Now place the brushed cotton liner on top of the nappy.

2. If your baby is very small, you can adjust the length of the nappy by folding back the upper edge. 

3. Lay the baby on the nappy. First, pull up the liner between the legs, than fold the two upper side edges into the middle.
4. Pull up the lower flap of the nappy between the legs and over the waist. Here too, by folding the flap, you can adjust the size of the nappy. Finally cross the ties of the knitted nappy across baby’s back, bring them round to the front an tie in a bow. 
5. The fine knitting gives the nappy a comfortable elasticity so that it fits snugly. The baby is not restricted, but wrapped gently with plenty of room to move.

6. The disana woollen overpants are then pulled over the nappy. Though watertight, these allow the air to pass through. The soft ribbing around the waist and legs hold the pants firmly but gentle in place. Baby is kept warm without getting too hot, as wool has the property to keep temperatures well balanced.
