Pre-fold reusable nappies are rectangular pieces of absorbent fabric that are folded into waterproof nappy covers to hold the material in place, which together make up the main body of the nappy.
“These are the most economical type of reusable as it’s just the inside fabric you wash and dry so they’re very quick-drying,” advises Tamara Rayment from the Women’s Environmental Network and Real Nappies for London.
The nappies, outer wraps and liners can all be bought separately, and the wraps have some really funky patterns.
Bambino Mio, £11.95 for a trial pack of a nappy, cover and liner.
Lay the waterproof outer layer open on a flat surface and fold the rectangular nappy to fit the length of the layer when it’s lying open.
Try to keep the material flat and smooth to avoid uncomfortable bulky bits bunching up the nappy when it’s on your baby.
Place your baby onto the nappy and pull it up towards his tummy.
Bring the Velcro tabs of the wrap together to fasten the nappy securely in place.
