What the Cloth Nappy Doctor Says
The perfect insert if your SuperHero or NightTime Pants requires more
absorbency for either nighttime or daytime. These inserts add a
varying amount of additional protection and absorbency.
All Super Undies Pants come with absorbency, but sometimes you need to Step it Up! Add one, two, or
three additional inserts to make your trainers soak up more – whether it be for
a long car ride, naptime, or when you just need a little break from running to
the potty every 20 minutes!
For your child…
Optional inserts lets you keep a trim look
Additional inserts give you great absorption and leak
Allows you to dictate the level of natural consequence you
want for your child.
Each insert is the equivalent of two layers of microfiber to
give you a wide range of absorption levels.
Going from a cloth nappy to a thin training pant could shock a
child if they leak the first time they use it. This could cause them to not
like their new big kid Undies. Use one insert for some extra absorbency, and
talk to your child about what might happen if they go potty in these without
making it to the toilet, in the car or at the park
Of course, there are times when you simply MUST have more
absorbency. If you’re heading to the mall or on a one-hour car trip, you need
to know you are covered. The best thing about Super Undies™ Pants is
that you can go from an attitude of serious potty learning to stuffing it a bit
to make sure the car seat stays dry.
Use Two Step-Up Inserts…
Children usually have a rhythm or pattern to the times they
go. They will normally pee just after waking up, or for those kids who stir a
bit before waking, this is maybe when they go. Use two step-up inserts if you
notice your child really wetting before they fully wake up. Keep a good eye on
their potty habits, though, because if you can lessen the inserts to one, then
you have a better chance at potty training and bringing about “wet-awareness.”
For young children just starting to potty learn
If your child is under two years old and you want to start
trying to potty train, change a diaper to a fully stuffed Super Undies™ Pocket
Training Pant stuffed with two Step-up Inserts. This will give you the daytime
security of a normal cloth diaper while you begin the process of
“wet-awareness.” Talk to your child often about the potty, peeing, where it
happens, and start changing him in the bathroom. Even if you think your child
does not understand all you are saying, stay in constant communication about
potty matters. After a small period of time (a week of two) reduce the number
of Step-Up Inserts from two to one. Continue this process until natural
consequences begin to make your child uncomfortable with peeing in his pants.
For “large capacity” kids
Simply put – some of us just have heavy wetters. Use two or
even three Inserts as needed.
Cloth Nappy Doctor Tip
Washing your Super Undies.
We always recommend
washing our products in a garment bag. This will help prevent the inserts from
getting caught around the agitator in your washing machine (if you have one)
and getting torn or ripped away at the seam of the diaper.
We first recommend washing your Super Undies on either a
warm, or cold wash prior to use once you have made sure the product fits your
Once the product has been used we recommend using a diaper sprayer to
rid the diaper of any solids into your toilet.
If your Super Undies are soiled, use the diaper sprayer, or
just shake the solids out into the toilet. To help reduce stains you will want
to cold rinse and throw it into a open top bucket, or wet bag keeping it
wet until you are ready to wash. You will want to wash our products every day
or every other day. You will want to use your washing machines highest water
level available. You may need to pre-rinse with no detergent and then follow
through with a warm wash with detergent. You can then dry our products either
in the dryer on low, or line dry them or a combination of both.
Please note that cotton is a natural fiber and does have a
tendency to fray. Fraying of any cotton product is not considered a defect but
rather something that can naturally occur.
You will want to avoid using chlorine bleach on a regular
basis. It will start to break down the fibres and shorten the life and
absorbency of the diapers. It also may irritate your child's skin. You also
want to avoid using any fabric softeners, liquid or sheets. Fabric softeners
coat the absorbent layers of the diapers and will reduce absorbency.
To lengthen the life of your Super Undies you will want to
hang dry your diapers overnight, or partially dry in the dryer and then hang
dry after a cold rinse. You can use 1/2 c. of lemon juice to whiten, or sun them in cold
weather to freshen and remove stains.
