Washable Nappies FAQs

How many nappies will I need?

If you plan to wash daily you will need 15 size 1 nappies and 4 size one wraps and the same again in size 2 once your baby is ready to move into the second size. (If you want to wash every second day we recommend you buy another 5 nappies and 2 wraps)

A note about sizes

The specified weight ranges are intended as a guide only and are based on average weights and builds of babies. If you are
unsure which size to go for, contact us for advice or buy a trial pack:


    *     Size 1 – Will fit up to 18 lbs, this can be anything from 5 months to 12 months.

    *     Size 2 – Usually fit from 6 months to potty training.

    *     Size 3 – Can fit from about 15 months upwards on chunky monkeys, however most of our tots babies will happily toddle off to potty training having only used the stage one and two tots (to give you an idea, only 8 in every 100 nappies Tots Bots make are size three's).

What is the difference between the fastenings?

  • Aplix: Fastens just like a disposable with patches of hook and loop. Most preferred by dads!
  • Nippa: Toddler proof stretchy fastener that is safe and easy to use. It has small plastic teeth that grip the terry loops giving it a snug, versatile fit.
  • Popper: Rows of little plastic poppers to give a secure fit. Totally toddler proof!
Tots or Fleece wrap?

  • We recommend the Tots wrap as your main nappy cover.
  • The fleece wrap is great at nighttime or if your baby has sensitive skin due to their excellent breathability.

What about Nappy Rash?

Your reusable nappies are no more likely to cause nappy rash than disposables. A recent survey conducted by Bristol University into nappy rash concluded that “disposable nappies give little protection” and that “the type of nappy worn did not emerge as a significant factor”.
