Product Info
Alva Baby nappies are an efficient and easy to use nappy, so much so they have become the best loved brand for economical reusable nappies. 

They come with an absorbent 3-layer microfibre insert which stuffs inside the pocket. Additional boosters can be added for extra absorbency.

The outer layer of the nappy is a waterproof and breathable TPU. The inner layer of the nappy is a polyester suede cloth (100% man-made, not derived from animals) which helps to draw moisture away from your baby's bottom and in to the insert.

What's Inside?

Size + Care Guide

Fits from 8 -35lbs/3.5-16kg approx

To wash the Alva nappies, remove and rinse off the residuals (knock solids into toilet). Disposable liners may be used. Store in a dry pail, we recommend a hanging pail, and wash every 1-2 days.

Run a cold rinse, and machine wash (no hotter than 30ºC), do not use fabric softeners or bleach then hang dry or tumble dry on a low heat

Line drying in the sun will help to remove any staining

Why we love it

Alva nappies are a hugely popular range and The Nappy Gurus can understand why. Apart from the great choice of designs, Alva guarantee their nappies for a year! They come with a 3-layer microfibre insert and the have Hip and Crossover snaps to help prevent 'wing droop'

As with all nappies and inserts; wash before first use to help increase absorbency. Place the insert inside the nappy through the open pocket in the back. You can also insert more than one insert when extra absorbency is needed. We recommend Bamboo Boosters.

Fantastic starter/Lower budget option
Friday, 12 July 2019  |  Tisha

Alva nappies are one of the cheapest cloth nappy options Iíve come across, this makes them perfect for those who are unsure/trialling cloth nappies, or those on a smaller budget.

As for absorbency, we found that there was no use using a single insert for our 8 month old daughter, she would soak it in half an hour. After trying a variety of things we now go for two basic Alva inserts for a short use nappy but for anything over an hour and a half we use a basic Alva and a baba and boo bamboo insert or two basic And one charcoal Alva insert and these work a treat.

The other issue we had with these is the fit around the legs, unless we use multiple inserts the fit is far too loose and we an get leaks. The second layer of poppers at the top of the nappy really help here and with the right inserts and fiddling we get the right fit and no leaks.

All of these problems can be sorted with the right inserts and working out the best fit for your baby. The nappies themselves are beautiful prints and a great quality of make.

I love this nappy, it is by far my favourite. You can put any inserts you like in the pocket to boost absorbancy. The prints are beautiful and its a great price
