'What's the point in having a separate waterproof cover with a reusable nappy?'
Q : 'Why do I need a separate waterproof cover with the Snuggleblanks Quickdry? Why can't the waterproof layer be built in?'

Probably the question I'm asked most.

In short, you don't always and it can... 

Lots of other nappies on the market- child & adult - are what we call 'all in ones' or 'pockets'
This means they're essentially a shell, often comprised of synthetic, non or low absorbency material, into which can be placed absorbent inserts of your choice. 

Sounds ideal? 

Well...yes, they're very easy to use, quick to dry and convenient. Great for daytime use certainly. We use them for our kids and change regularly 

However, unlike our Superwetter Quickdrys, they don't offer all round high absorbency especially at the sides, which makes our Quickdrys ideal for heavy wetting night time wrigglers & side sleepers.

The bamboo structure of the Quickdry means moisture can be absorbed and dissipated all the way round the nappy, whilst the soft inner microfleece keeps skin dry. The Quickdry nappy itself contains inner leak guards, which guide moisture towards the pull out cotton core.
A breathable waterproof wrap over the top,  with elasticated legs then keeps everything securely contained. 

By comparison a pocket/all in one rarely has absorbency to the sides and no additional barrier against leaks. 

In summary, if you're fed up with damp beds, and regularly changing and want a long lasting, high absorbency solution, then the Quickdry & Wrap set is worth a try- child or adult. 

Please feel free to ask us any more questions or try one out
