Changes from the February 2020 Release

Alcmena have implemented the following changes to the V3.5 nappies in their June release:

  • No tummy elastics
  • No trim on outside elastics – This release there will be no white/coloured trim around the elastics of the nappies. The print will instead go up to the edge just like their V1.5 nappies.
  • Back elastics will be thicker & wider, like the elastics on the v1.5 nappies.
  • Elastics in inner gussets will be shortened/tighter.
  • Inserts will stay the same except the 5-layer bamboo insert will now be overlocked with blue stitching (around the edge) to differentiate between the 3-layer Nap insert.
  • Velcro laundry tabs will be sturdier.
  • Female snap crossovers will now be on the left wing.
  • Extra waist snap moved from top to bottom row of waist snaps.

Why We Love The Snap & Wipe Nappies:

1. All-In-2 Nappy Design for Easy Assembly and Quicker Drying Times 

  • The nappy shell is waterproof on the outside as well as the inside, meaning you can simply snap out the soiled inserts, wipe down the nappy shell and re-use with a fresh insert.
    • For poo-splosions and heavy soiling, Alcmena recommend a quick wash and dry before reusing.
    • If you'd like an even easier clean, add a biodegradable bamboo liner between bum and nappy. Simply lift out and dispose for poos. 
  • Your waterproof nappy shell can also double as a swim nappy, which will save you money! The gussets on the nappy shell will contain any discharge. 

2. Gussetted 5-Layer Hemp & Bamboo Inserts

  • 5-layer Hemp Insert: 
    • 5-layers of hemp fibre (hemp absorbs up to 20% its own weight while still feeling dry to the touch!)
    • Snaps-in at both ends of the nappy shell for wiggly bubs
    • Gussetted (no more leaks!)
    • 5-layer Bamboo Insert
      • 5x layers of pure bamboo
      • Snaps-in at both ends of the nappy shell
    • 3-layer Nap Insert: 
      • 3x layers of pure bamboo
      • Snaps in at the front, with a middle snap for customising absorbency (fold it in thirds or halves to place absorbency where bub needs it most)

      3. FOUR Customisable Absorbency Options (as opposed to two)

      • Alcmena new nappies allow you to customise your absorbency up to 4 different ways!

      How to customise:

      1. For light wetters/day-use, simply snap the Hemp / Bamboo Insert into the nappy shell
      2. For nap times, add in the Nap Insert by snapping it onto the Hemp / Bamboo Insert
      3. For night time, snap in the Hemp Insert, and then snap in the Bamboo Insert on top 
      4. For super heavy-wetters, snap in the Hemp Insert, then the Bamboo Insert, and then the Nap Insert on top of that. 

      4. Larger, Adjustable, One-Size Fit 4-20kg

      • Alcmena have made their nappies a little bigger so they're also suitable for toilet training!

        5. Fat back elastics for the ultimate comfort!

        6. Choice of Snaps or Velcro closure! 

        • Velcro: Easier to adjust the size (when bub is in-between snaps), and more similar to disposables so more user-friendly. Also great for fitting a night nappy on a non-compliant toddler.
        • Snaps: Great for when bub learns to take off their Velcro nappies and slightly more durable (Velcro is prone to picking up fluff in the wash and looking worn)
