Finally! A leak-proof nappy cover that refuses to compromise breathability. This cover is made from soft brushed polyester coated with polyurethane (PUL) that is soft, durable and waterproof. The Air Flow Snap Cover, with adjustable snaps at the waist (2 each side) and leg openings (3 each leg), has an air ventilation system between the snaps. This allows for maximum air circulation as baby moves, reducing the risk of breeding bacteria by keeping the temperature inside the nappy down. And, unlike Velcro, a curious baby can't undo them, so they stay on until you take them off!
The Air Flow cover comes in a range of plain colours and five very cute Eco Theme™ prints.
The Air Flow cover is designed to be used with any of the One Size or Sandy's nappies to create a highly breathable, leakproof nappy system.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the nature of PUL fabric, these covers will not remain waterproof indefinitely. With proper care, most parents find that a cover used full-time (ie. washed every second day) will last around 4-6 months. That is around the time one child would be expected to be in any particular size. Unfortunately, we cannot provide replacements under warranty for covers that have been used for some months and then begin to fail.
The XSmall and Small size covers fit the same weight range (2.5-5.5kg), however the XSmall is a smaller cover. The XSmall is designed for use with newborn size nappies such as the XS Sandy's nappy or newborn prefolds. The Small size cover is for use with larger nappies such as the one-size nappy or folded terry squares.
Always get Small or XSmall size for a newborn baby - Medium is too large for a new baby. Most people are more than happy with the wear they get from the small size.
If in doubt about the size, do not wash the cover when you get it but try it on over a clean dry nappy. If you are not happy with the size then take it off immediately and we are more than happy to exchange unused/unwashed covers.
Wash and Care
Can be machine washed to 60°C (wash with you nappies). Can be tumble dried on low. DO NOT BLEACH - including Napisan - as this will significantly reduce the life of the cover.
With love and care your Air Flow cover can be expected to last 4-6 months of full-time (ie. washing every 2nd day) use. Some people find they last much longer, however, if you have unexplained leaks after 4 months of use then your cover has worn out. Please be aware that the cover may "yellow" on the inside after a few months of use. This is normal and does not affect the functioning of the cover. Please do not be tempted to try to bleach the yellow out.
To store the cover for future use wash, rinse twice and dry thoroughly. Store in a cool dry place. Some yellowing may occur if the cover is stored for some time.
