Petit Lulu SIO basic START inserts (new version)
Here, you are buying the set of inserts only (B & C below), not the cover (A below), but here's the background to how the inserts are used:
The Petit Lulu Snap-In-One (SIO) system is made up of:
- (1) A waterproof cover
- (2) A base insert (the SIO 'basic') which poppers into the cover - this is an hourglass shaped insert with elastication at the legs allowing for a great fit and thus minimal leakage
- (3) An attachable short rectangular insert that poppers onto the base insert. This won't be required on a smaller baby but can be poppered in when additional absorbency is required.
Many parents start off by trying the Petit Lulu Complete SIO, (made up of all A, B and C components mentioned above). Some parent continue to buy complete nappies like this but, in order to cut costs a little, you could just buy additional inserts. If you've changed your nappy and the waterproof cover has remained clean, you can remove the used inserts and swap for another set of inserts, using the cover again. You can often reuse the cover 3-4 times before it needs washing, so for every cover you have, you could have 3-4 inserts.
The nappy is suitable for babies of 4 – 15 kgs.
- suitable for daytime use
dries easily (can be line-dried)
- elastication around the side of the basic Start allows for a great fit around baby's legs. This really helps to reduce leakage onto the cover.
- very absorbent
SIO basic (the base)
60% viscose (bamboo), 40% cotton (organic) (4 layers)
START – a short insert (SIO)
faceside and underside : 60% viscose (bamboo), 40% cotton (organic)
fill: 80% cotton, 20% polyester
This new version of the base is in a brand new cut, which is narrowed at the back, and due to the material used (Czech bamboo BIO terry) its top absorbency is maintained. Thanks to the reduced volume, it makes children “little butts” smaller and allows better freedom of movement. Only one snap is used to fasten a short and long insert, so it makes the changing process easier and faster.
