Today Vicki gives us a detailed look at everything that comes with a Candie (our best-selling all-in-two reusable nappy) and how it all works together. Candies come with a PUL shell for water-proofing, a trifold insert for absorbency and a booster for extra absorbency as they get older or for long naps (If you’re that lucky!). In this video, you can see how it all fits together to create an easy to use modern cloth nappy.

Candie Cloth Nappies Transcript.
Hi, I’m Vicki from Bubblebubs and today I’d like to show you our all-in-two Candie. Our all-in-two Candie comes with a waterproof shell. So, this is actually what’s going to be keeping everything contained within the nappy and keeping your clothes nice and dry.
Well, not your clothes, baby’s clothes. And yours I suppose, if bub’s sitting on your knee, that sort of thing. Our tri-folds are made from super thick bamboo fleece. So, a tri-fold folds into three, as its name suggests. And our tri-fold snaps into the shell. So, this then creates the nappy.
So, how it goes on is we pop bubby in where my hand is and we do it up at the side. Now, the reason we had designed our Candie as a side snap is it just fits a greater range of children. So, if you want to get a really good fit we can snap the snaps independent of each other. So, you can get a good fit around the legs and around the waist, because that’s what’s gonna be doing the containing. And so we don’t have any rise snap, so it’s all about keeping it simple.
The same nappy that you’re using on your newborn baby is the same nappy you can be using on your eight-month-old, two-year-old baby, without having to remember where their rise snaps are. That sort of thing. We do have an extra insert that comes with the nappy when you’re buying the all-in-two Candie complete. This booster just adds extra absorbency, so if you’re wanting it to last a little bit longer, or you have a bubby that does bigger wees, we just add the extra booster so you can pop it at the front if you happen to have a little boy or a tummy-sleeper and you’re wanting the nappy to last a day sleep. You pop it in the front. Or we can pop it in the middle, as such, for little girls. And again, just do it up at the sides. Like that. Thanks.
