The Motherease toddlease (Sandy’s XL) nappy is one of the best loved ‘shaped’, ‘sized’ real nappies available. It MUST be used with an outer wrap, normally a PUL wrap, although it would also work with a wool or fleece wrap if required. It comes in four sizes and here we have the largest size, which fits older babies over 35lbs/15.8kg plus. Many children are potty trained before reaching 35lbs and so will not need the Toddlease size of nappy. If however you do have a larger child the ToddleEase; which is another name for an XL Sandys, is suitable for children over 35lbs and when boosted makes a fantastic and reliable night nappy as well and lasts until your child is dry at night, which often comes a few months or even a year after they are dry in the day.
The stretch terry fabric and popper fastenings mean that some people like to use it as a trainer pull-up pant but with the added advantage of the full absorbency of a proper nappy. It was the very first nappy to sport the front over back side closure design. Although it has been around for many years it still holds it own and is a very popular cloth nappy for a number of reasons. Sandy’s are made by Motherease, which are a Canadian company.
Cotton Terry– The terry is specially knitted so only cotton touches your baby’s delicate skin. The polyester is knitted into the base of the fabric to provide strength, durability and shrinkage control. The result is a very stretchy, comfortable and reliable product. Cotton terry is Motherease’s most durable fabric.
Bamboo Terry– Tbe bamboo terry fabric is made with 70% Bamboo / 30% Cotton touching your baby’s delicate skin. Polyester is knit into the base of the fabric to provide strength, durability and shrinkage control. It is available in a natural unbleached finish. The bamboo used in the yarn is a man made fiber using the viscose process. It is made from organically grown bamboo and the factory producing it follows strict environmental standards (ISO14001:2004) as well as employee health standards (OHSAS18001:1999). The yarn has been tested and is free of harmful substances according to Oeko Tex Standard 100 for baby articles.
Organic Cotton – The Organic Cotton Terry is knit from 100% organic cotton and meets Global Organic Textile Standards. Organic cotton is becoming increasingly popular as it is grown without the use of harmful chemicals that have an adverse effect on the environment. Ring spun, combed cotton yarn ensures a top quality grade of cotton. The Organic Cotton Terry fabric is available in its natural unbleached finish. The Organic Cotton Terry does not include a polyester core sewn in to add durability so it is advisable to wash at mostly lower temperatures (30° – 40°) and not tumble dry too often.
Size – Toddlease, 35lbs + / 15.8 kg +
In my opinion – Sandy’s nappies were one of my favorite nappies to use. They rarely (if ever) leaked, poo or wee and were not too bulky, even when boosted at night. The took a longer to dry than the man made fibre nappies I had, but being made from a natural material was one of the major plus points for me.
My tips – I used fleece liners to keep my little ones bottom dry at night, as they did feel very wet when left on for 12 hours. I also boosted them with the generic bamboo boosters which fitted nicely into all the nappies and increased the absorbency for night time use. I also found them to be a very absorbent nappy, even before boosting. If you can’t get hold of a Motherease XL ariflow try Little Lambs size 3 wrap or Thirsties Duo Size 3 wrap which both work well
Washing and Care – please read carefully our full ‘washing and care instructions’. All nappies and wraps must be washed according to our care instructions otherwise the manufacturers guarantee will not be valid. All new nappies must be washed before they are used. Please note that when buying a large number of cloth nappies you should just wash a few in the first instance, and check you are happy with your choice, as I cannot refund on used or washed nappies. This nappy can be tumble dried on a low heat, however it is advisable to only tumble dry occasionally as it does shorten the life of the nappy and of course cost you more.
