Poppered under-the-nile organic cotton nappies?

Postby Velvetsteph » Mon Jul 30, 2007 9:00 pm

Anyone ever heard of / used these?

I think they're canadian and not made anymore (only found velcro ones online) and the poppers are a bit strange!!
The lady we got them from said she used a nippa with them rather than use the poppers (which is fine by me as I prefer nippa nappies...)

I got them off freecycle... They're white so obviously will have to dye them... :P

Will put a pic up when they're dry...

I've heard of them aswell and was going to bid on some from ebay awhile ago. Will be interested to see what there like.

Well here's what they look like - the poppers are in weird places, almost looks like they're supposed to be done up inside out?
I'd normally assume the lable was inside right?

They're quite thick in the middle too so would probably last a while...

Not sure what the weird boosters are - they feel like they're made of terry but covered in cotton sheet...

Might try them tomorrow...

And don't they look boring :!::lol::!:

They seem quite big compared with my other nappies too...

And (I've just discovered) the elastic in the legs has gone so there's no stretch to them at all...

Might cut them up for boosters if they're no good as nappies...

I now understand why the lady we got them from said she used them with nippas!!

I think the under-the-nile ones you can get now come with velcro only... I think these are pretty old too!!
