Pop-in Nappies

Pop-in Nappies

Why Pop-in?

Over the years many parents have chosen to just Pop-in, rather than throw away. Pop-ins are as comfortable on newborns as they are on nippers, and bridge the journey from first nappy to potty training. The benefits of reusable nappies are threefold; economy, ecology and well being. 


By using reusable nappies you can help divert thousands of disposables from the local ecosystem which is no small thing! Reusable nappies are 40%* better for the world we live in even considering the washing process (*source LCA report 2008).


We know from experience how budgets soon grow when you become a parent, so we think of reusables as an investment, which make the first few years a little easier on the pocket. 
Using reusable nappies can save thousands of dollars in the birth to potty stage, compared with disposable solutions…even considering the usage of water, electricity and detergents!

Well Being

There is lots of information available on some of the chemicals contained in modern disposable nappies but we believe given the choice most babies would prefer to have soft breathable fabrics (dyed and processed to oekotex standards) next to their bottoms. What would you choose for yourself? 

One size fits most:

From first nappy to potty training the new generation Pop-in goes even further towards perfecting the birth to potty sizing offering even greater flexibility at the waist and legs as baby grows. Pop-in’s use cleverly positioned poppers so parents can easily adjust the size of the nappy as baby grows.

Pop-ins are designed to fit most babies from birth through to potty training, the chart is intended as a guide only as all babies are different shapes and sizes, the maximum waist size of the Pop-in is 56-57 cm. You choose the nappy setting that most closely fits around your baby’s legs for maximum containment. Do remember…you may find that your little one quickly progresses through the size settings faster than you anticipate, they may even be on the largest setting at night by 6-8 months, but don’t panic they will soon be mobile and their body shape will then change!

Which material to chose?

Pop-in is available in both Bamboo and Minkee. Find out which materials would suit you best...

Why Bamboo?

We like bamboo for lots of reasons. We discovered that it is a luxuriously comfortable cloth that is antibacterial, antifungal, hypoallergenic and naturally breathable to keep babies happier for longer and that’s just the way it is naturally. It’s natural structure means it is cool in the summer and warm in winter.We recommend bamboo for parents who are concerned about sensitive or allergy prone skin, or those who simply want an alternative to cotton or man-made fibres.

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, mainly because it has an extraordinary capacity to absorb water which helps it to grow faster. The end result is an excellent wicking fibre, which is 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton. Bamboo is grown naturally, without industrialised farming. It is sustainable, and thrives without pesticides or fertilizers. It is 100% biodegradable, cuts like grass and re-shoots without being uprooted which means it can grow in places where other crops are simply not viable. All things considered we think it is the perfect nappy material.

Why Minkee?

Minkee is a microfibre, which means it is made up of lots of tiny ultra fine fibres which are several times thinner than a human hair. But unlike standard microfibre Minkee is never sticky to the touch. Made using micro polyester it is incredibly luxurious and so so soft and the great thing is it stays that way even after repeated washing.

Both the Minkee and the Jaquard used are fast wicking, so moisture is cleverly and quickly drawn away from delicate behinds. Synthetic fibres aren’t as absorbent as natural ones but then they air dry much much faster. We would recommend Minkee for parents who don’t have much outdoor space for drying, they are a great alternative for parents who are willing to trade a few more changes per day for a little more convenience come laundry time! These nappies can be washed, dried and back on baby within just a few hours!


Bamboo Middle Box are available in Pastel and Brights

The Middle Box contains 10 Pop In Nappies, 3 Night Time Boosters, 80 roll of bioliners and tote wetbag

The beauty of this All In Two (AI2) nappy is that you can purchase extra soaker sets to enable you to reuse the waterproof shells if you would like to.  When the soaker is wet, simply unsnap and snap in a new clean soaker!  You may choose to air out the shell in between reusing it and if any soiling is on the shell then it's time to put it into the nappy bucket!

Caring for my Pop-ins

How do I wash my Pop-ins?

Which detergent should I use?

Which chemicals should I avoid?

Using wrong detergents may shorten the lifespan of your nappy and will affect your guarantee. Always use non-bio detergents and check the ingredients



  1. Never use biological detergents, fabric softeners or dryer sheets, bleaching agents, enzymes or brighteners on your Pop-ins (*most soaking solutions contain one or more of these).
  2. Avoid using products containing vinegar or high quantities of citric acid or bi-carbonate of soda (this is mainly important for bamboo nappies).
  3. Only use 3/4 of the recommended washing detergent when washing to avoid high product build-up.

How can I treat stains and keep my nappy smelling fresh?


Most stain removers contain optical brighteners and bleaching agents: which are not good for your nappies.



A cold rinse before every wash help keeps nappies fresh and prevents stains from setting. If your nappies do become stained try rubbing your usual non-bio liquid into the nappy or you can try the Eco stain remover. If possible let your pop-ins dry outside as the sun will help bleach the stain, even in winter.

How many Pop-ins per load ?


Make sure your Pop-ins have plenty of room when washing…



15 nappies is the maximum recommended load depending on your drum size….

Can I tumble dry my Pop-ins?


Never tumble your outershell or leave it in contact with direct heat (such as a hot radiator) for extended periods.




You can only tumble dry the inner parts, so separate the soaker and booster from the outershell and tumble dry on a low heat for just 10mins. It help revitalise the fibres keeping them nice and soft. We only recommend tumble drying infrequently to maximise the lifespan of the product.
