Nothing is more precious than your wee baby, we totally get that and we totally agree, which is why we’ve designed Real Nappies to be as natural as possible.


  1. An AI2 nappy: best for flexibility of adding boosting when or where it is needed, and any insert will fit in them. They are also quick to dry as they come apart.
  2. Prefold used as the main absorbency. Quick to dry as they unfold. Can be folded in a number of ways to customise them for boys, girls, back sleepers, tummy or side sleepers. Great absorbency = no leaks.
  3. A sized nappy will more likely fit babies of all shapes without any bulky extra material. Great fit = no leaks.
  4. Can transform into a Flat nappy or Terry Square nappy. For even quicker drying and the cheapest reusable options.
  5. Real Nappies are also a Night Nappy, the booster is added without compromising the fit. So you don't need to spend extra money on another type of nappy.

What are Real Nappies?

Real Nappies cloth nappies come in 2 parts:

1) a natural cotton prefold cloth nappy insert against your baby’s skin,

2) a waterproof Snug Wrap nappy cover.

The Snug Wrap nappy cover need only be washed when soiled, typically every two to three nappy changes. 

An optional, disposable liner can be used on top of the prefold to make clean-up easier.

Part 1 - Soft Absorbent Natural Cotton Prefold Cloth Nappy

Real Nappies use premium quality 100% natural cotton fibre for superior softness, absorbency and durability wash after wash. The natural soft cotton cloth nappies are comfortable to wear, breathe naturally, and are certified to Oeko-Tex standard. Real Nappies cloth nappies endure rigorous machine-washing and tumble-drying without tearing, shredding or losing absorbency. In fact, Real Nappies cloth nappies actually ‘quilt up’ and get fluffier with each wash.

Real Nappies cotton cloth nappies are prefolded which means the prefold cloth nappies’ 3 panels are folded and sewn together each having up to eight layers for superior absorbency. The Real Nappies prefold cloth nappy is thicker in the middle to offer more absorbency exactly where it’s needed without it being bulky. They can be folded in a variety of ways to accommodate boys, girls and smaller babies as required, and ‘boosted’ with optional booster pads for heavy wetters or night time use.


Part 2 - Snug Wrap nappy covers

The Real Nappies Snug Wrap nappy covers are quick and easy to use. The quality velcro tab closures won’t lose their grip with repeated use and the elastic at the waist and legs ensures a snug comfortable fit. We use Velcro instead of domes to give a better, more intuitive fit, and Day Cares prefer Velcro too as it’s quicker and easier for them.

Because the Snug Wrap nappy cover only needs to be washed if it gets soiled, and the individual cloth nappy inserts and Snug Wrap components dry quickly, with Real Nappies you need only half as many nappy covers, which is a significant cost saving considering that a baby will average about six to eight changes a day and a newborn baby needs changing ten to twelve times a day.

Different Sizes for a Better Fit

Babies are all different shapes and sizes, and just as adults can't fit into a size that's too big or too small for them, babies can't either. Beware of one size fits all nappies that supposedly adjust to fit babies from birth to potty training. No single OSFM (One Size Fits Most - the name says it all, fits MOST but not ALL) nappy can adequately address the needs of a tiny delicate newborn and a growing, boisterous toddler.

The four different sizes means you get a snug slim fit without any extra bulk at all ages and stages. A newborn in a one-size-fits-all design is generally saddled with a very bulky, often leaky, awkward and uncomfortable nappy, while on the other hand a toddler is left with one that is less than adequate. Using the correct size nappy will ensure a comfortable and leak-proof fit as you will always have the required absorbency at all ages and stages.

Plus, it means you can mix and match.  So, if your baby still wears an Infant Snug Wrap, but needs a bit more padding, match it with a Crawler prefold. That way you can mix it up to make sure you get the perfect fit.

Quick Washing and Drying

Being two separate parts - a Snug Wrap cover and a Prefold inner, means the washing and drying is easier.  The Snug Wrap covers can be used again and again and don't have to be washed after every change, cutting down on the washing load compared to nappies that have the cover included in each nappy.  The Prefold inner is easy to hang out and dries very quickly.  We have found the Real Nappies nappy cover and cloth prefold system means the nappies dry quicker than the All-in-one or Pocket variety.
