Re: Disana tie nappies for newborn?

The tie on nappy itself is knit cotton(i believe) and is absorbant, but usually you add a booster to them..they sell little flat like inserts to go in them but you can use whatever in them. They do need a cover to be waterproof..they are meant to be paired with a disana wool soaker. Though I would imagine any cover would do. I want to use them with my premie prefolds with wool or coverless. Little ones get changed so frequently that I dont think the tie nappy would get soaking wet. I will hopefully be making some wool cocoons and thought that might work well. I just love how old fashioned they look!

Re: Disana tie nappies for newborn?

I have some of these but I'm confused about which cover to use. I know that the Disana wool cover is supposed to be used with these but does anyone have experience with other covers in newborn and small size? They seem bulky. Anyone with experience know if a Thirsties or Bummi work?

Re: Disana tie nappies for newborn?

I also had the opportunity to buy some of these bnip and didn't because I was too scared of washing them. Do you have to fish them out of the wet bag and put them in a lingerie mesh bag? Don't the ties get all tangled up with everything and each other in the wash? They look so comfy, but I ended up going with an Engel fitted that has velcro because it just seemed faster.

I would imagine a Bummis pull on cover would work!

Re: Disana tie nappies for newborn?

Are people actually brave (or crazy) enough to put babies down for naps or to sleep in apparel with long ties

Well, the ties wrap around and then are knotted and then whole thing is covered with a cover (which they probably would not be able to remove unless they were Houdini-Baby) so i think it would be safe enough. I think in some countries, swaddles are routinely tied on with ties.

I'm just thinking more about the laundry aspects of:

1. untying a knot that is sopping wet with urine, especially if you have a boy and all the pee is at the front (and it's late at night and he's crying).

2. untangling them all when you take them out of the dryer.

I used these with DD and I've been using them on DS since we came home from the hospital. He's 4 weeks old. We use them with pro wrap newborn covers, they are a bit bulky but work well. Sometimes I'll put a homemade wool cover over it; it looks similar to the Disana wool cover. Again, bulky but covers everything with no leaks
I was getting tired of untangling the strings after every wash so I cut them off. I use a snappi to close the diapers.

Re: Disana tie nappies for newborn?

I like mine!! I can put them on my nb & toddler. I'd upload pics if I knew how. I don't think they are that bulky. Just depends how you put it on them. I love how customizable they are. I have been playing around with them trying different ways to put them on. I was able to put a Thirsties sz 1 cover over the nappy yesterday when I put it on my 9 wk old. I don't add any liners with it. I did put one on my toddler last night for bed with a small liner for xtra absorption & put a sz L motherease airflow cover over it. Worked good. I'm hoping to buy some of the disana wool though. I'd love to try it out.
