How to Cloth Diaper
How Does the Charlie Banana Hybrid All-In-One One Size Diaper Work?
The Successful Cloth Diapering Routine
If baby is over 3 months old, always put in 2 inserts for the maximum absorption.
We recommend that you use Charlie Banana® liner, by simply placing the liner on top of the fleece, then once the baby has soiled the diaper, lift the liner and dispose it. The liner facilitates the removal and the cleaning of solids, it makes it EASY!
Adjust the bra-elastic inside the diaper to the desired size.
Place baby on a diaper.
1. Pull the front of the diaper and snap the leg snap first. Make sure it is snug and tight with no gap at the leg.
2. Snap the upper snaps as you wish, so baby is comfortable.
Tips: Try on your wrist to feel how comfortable it feels even on a tight setting as there should be no gap.
When baby needs a change due to urine only, simply remove the diaper and place in Charlie Banana® laundry pail. If baby has a dirty diaper, shake the waste into the toilet and place in the laundry pail.
If using the liner, simply lift it and dispose it. Rinse your diaper first or throw it into the wash directly.
Tips: You can also use our disposable inserts for occasional use too.
Rinse any residue and store in a dry or water pail. Place in washing machine and select cold or warm wash to a maximum of 40℃. Use an eco-friendly detergent, only half of the recommended amount is needed. Do not use fabric softener. Only non chlorine bleach when needed. Tumble dry LOW or hang to dry. Do not iron. Do not use cream or ointment, unless you are using the disposable insert. Your detergent needs to be residue-free.
