A leak-proof nappy cover that refuses to compromise breathability.
Made from fabric that is soft, durable & waterproof.
Hook & Loop Aplix fastening (similar to velcro).
Works great with prefolds, muslin squares & contoured pinless nappies.
Easy to use
Gussetted leg openings ensure a snug fit. The elastic edges are covered with a superior
nylon binding which helps prevent moisture from wicking onto babies clothes.
Trim cut & trim fit. Only adjustable around the waist, but leg gussets to help fit around the legs.
This cover is good for babies with skinny legs & is a fantastic cover for use with prefolds or folded nappies on new babies - just put the cover over the nappy & do up the Aplix snuggly - no need for pins or snappi!
The Rikki™ Cover is designed to be used with any of the Mother-ease™ One-size™ nappies or Mother-ease™ Sandy's™ nappies to create a highly breathable, leakproof nappy system.
Xsmall - 2.5 to 5.5kgs
Small - 2.5 to 5.5kgs
Medium - 4.5 to 9kgs
Large - 9 to 16kgs
Xlarge - 16 to 21kgs
Note the XSmall & Small size covers fit the same weight range (2.5-5.5kg), however the XSmall is a smaller cover. XSmall covers are designed for use with premmie/newborn size nappies such as the Mother-ease™ XS Sandy's™ nappy or newborn prefolds. The Small size cover is designed for use with larger nappies such as the Mother-ease™ One-size™ nappy or folded terry squares.
Note the Xsmall & XLarge covers are an order in item only which will add 4-5 days to your delivery time.
Remember it is very important that your cover fits properly to avoid leaks etc. The Small or XSmall size is great for a newborn baby. Medium is too large for a new baby.
If you are unsure of the sizing just try it on over a clean/dry nappy. If you feel it is not the correct size take if off immediately & let me know as I am happy to exchange it for another size as long as the cover is unused & unwashed.

Air-flow™ or Rikki™?
This is a very personal choice. The main difference is that the Air-flow™ closes with snaps & the Rikki™ with Aplix (like Velcro™). They are also a different cut - the air-flow is a very generous (some would say "baggy") cut whereas the Rikki™ is much trimmer.
Here are some things to consider when choosing:
Air-flow™ Cover: Generous cut - fits any nappy & just about any baby & allows air to circulate inside the cover ("Air-flow") to reduce temperature & wetness * Separately adjustable at waist & legs - good for fat tummies or fat thighs! * Easy to wash & care for * Snaps never wear out * Babies cannot open snaps * Easy to put on a wriggly baby - just snap it on!
Rikki™ Cover: Trimmer cut & trimmer fit * Only adjustable around the waist, but leg gussets to help fit around the leg * This cover is good for babies with skinny legs where the air-flow snaps are too big * Quick & easy to put on * Extra care required when washing to avoid the Aplix snagging & collecting fluff * Babies can often open Aplix from around 4-6 months, so outer clothing is essential with this cover* Fantastic cover for use with prefolds or folded nappies on new babies - just put the cover over the nappy & do up the Aplix snuggly - no need for pins or snappi!
Wash & Care:
Can be machine washed to 60˚C (wash with your nappies). Can be tumble dried on low. DO NOT BLEACH - including Napisan - as this will significantly reduce the life of the cover.
With love & care your Air-flow cover can be expected to last 4-6 months of full-time (ie. washing every 2nd day) use. Some people find they last much longer, however, if you have unexplained leaks after 4 months of use then your cover has worn out. Please be aware that the cover may "yellow" on the inside after a few months of use. This is normal & does not affect the functioning of the cover. Please do not be tempted to try to bleach the yellow out.
To store the cover for future use wash, rinse twice and dry thoroughly. Store in a cool dry place. Some yellowing may occur if the cover is stored for some time.
These covers are also available in sets of 4 (saving of $7.85) - go to the Packages section then choose Nappy Covers for more details.
