How do I use ImseVimse cloth diapers?

The cloth diaper, which absorbs the wee, is placed inside the leak-proof diaper cover. Put in an extra insert if your child wees a lot. Place the child on the cloth diaper and adjust the Velcro fastening for a perfect fit. Make sure the diaper is completely inside the cover. Do not pull on the leg cuffs as this could cause leakage. It is a good idea to use a flushable liner to make it easier to dispose of poop.

How do I wash ImseVimse cloth diapers?

1. When a diaper has been used, rinse it in cold water and squeeze it well.
Tip: hold the diaper in the toilet bowl and rinse with the shower hose.

2. Put the damp diapers in a bucket. You do not need to add extra water. The diapers can lie there for up to three days.

3. Normally, the diapers and the diaper covers can be washed at 60°C. If necessary, the cloth diapers can be washed at 90°C to get them extra clean. Close the velcro fastening on the diaper covers and Snap Diapers. Tip: diapers can be washed with other items of washing.

Do not use fabric softener as this leaves a residue on the surface of the fabric, which will decrease the absorbency.

Do not use bleaching agents on the diaper covers. You can use bleaching agents on the diapers occasionally.

4. We recommend that you simply hang up cloth diapers and covers to dry. You can dry them in the tumble-dryer but this puts more wear and tear on the fabric. Never dry ImseVimse items on a hot radiator or heated towel rail. Tip: if you use folding diapers, fold them as soon as they are laundered and dry – this saves time when changing diapers.

Is it environmentally-friendly to launder ImseVimse cloth diapers?

Yes. When you choose an organic cloth diaper you can be easy in your mind. Wash the cloth diapers at 60-90°C and hang them up to dry. You use less detergent and electricity by washing the cloth diapers with the rest of your washing.

 

How do you keep ImseVimse cloth diapers from leaking?

Diapers should be changed frequently – for your child’s comfort. The diaper and cover should be the right size for your child’s weight. If your child wees a lot or sleeps for longer periods, place an extra insert inside the diaper and/or use more impermeable diaper covers for added protection.
We recommend ImseVimse wool covers. Make sure the cloth diaper is completely inside the cover. Secure the Velcro fastening so that the cover does not slip and make sure the elasticated cuffs and waist are snug.

How often do I have to change ImseVimse cloth diapers?

A new born baby wees 15-20 times a day. Whether you use cloth diapers or disposables, you should change your baby’s diaper frequently as that is best for your baby’s sensitive skin. We recommend that you change diapers about 8 times a day, but of course this will vary from baby to baby.

Do ImseVimse cloth diapers involve more work?

No matter which sort of diaper you decide to use, they still need changing regularly. You wash cloth diapers with the rest of your washing. You change cloth diapers slightly more often but, on the other hand, for a shorter period time as your child will be out of diapers earlier. One major advantage is that you always have a supply of diapers at home.
