Trifold Nappy Insert FAQs
What Are Trifold Nappy Inserts?
Trifold nappy inserts, commonly referred to as trifolds, are a type of absorbent insert that's used inside reusable nappies. They are a popular choice for placing inside night nappies, or those needing extra absorbency for heavier wetting babies. NappyLuxe trifolds are made from 3 layers of super absorbent bamboo terry fabric, and are topped with an extra soft stay-dry layer.
How Do Trifold Nappy Inserts Work?
NappyLuxe trifolds work in a similar way to standard cloth nappy inserts. The trifold nappy inserts are snapped into place within the cloth nappies. They absorb the baby's wee and catch the poo, and are washed in the washing machine before being dried and reused.
How Do You Fold A Trifold Nappy Insert?
A trifold nappy insert is folded into three, hence the origins of the name "Tri-Fold". The NappyLuxe trifolds are snapped into place on the nappy cover and folded to have the stay-dry layer at the top, sitting snugly against baby's delicate skin. If needed, nappy liners can also be used between the trifold and baby's skin to make cleaning up number two's extra easy.
How To Wash Trifold Nappy Inserts?
Trifolds are easily washed and reused in the washing machine. We recommend a two-step wash process to ensure they are kept clean and fresh and free of stains. Trifolds can be dried either in the shade, the sun, or in the electric dryer. Find out more about washing trifolds by following our comprehensive guide: how to wash and clean cloth nappies correctly.
What's The Difference Between Trifolds and Standard Cloth Inserts?
The main difference between trifold nappy inserts and standard cloth nappy inserts is that trifolds are thinner. Standard cloth nappy inserts provide more convenience as there is no need to fold them, but they take longer to dry as they are made form more layers of material.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Trifold Nappy Inserts?
The main benefit of using trifold nappy inserts is that they have a fast drying time when hung to dry on the line. This means that for those who choose to line dry, using trifolds instead of standard cloth nappy inserts will have less waiting time to reuse the nappies.
