The newborn nappy from Close is an affordable way to bridge the gap between tiny baby, and birth to potty sizing. It is designed specifically to be used on a tiny or preemie baby straight from birth. This is a nappy that we often recommend for the stage of high frequency changes in those first few weeks. It fits from just 5lbs / 2kg and it shaped to fit well from birth with a contoured front section to sit comfortably below the umbilical cord.
This nappy won the Bronze Award for Newborn Nappy in The Nappy Guru® Awards 2023!
The Newborn Nappy pack includes:
6 x waterproof shells
10 x absorbent soaker pads
What is it made from?
The outer shell is a waterproof TPU layer, and the inner snap in soaker pads are 5 layers of bamboo terry with a top layer of stay-dry polyester. These nappies fasten with easy hook & loop fastenings on stretchy tabs.
What else will I need?
The design of this nappy means that at change time you can replace the absorbent soaker with a fresh one, reusing the outer shell as long as it is not soiled. This pack includes 6 shells and 10 absorbent soaker pads. Additional soaker sets are available to purchase separately.
How do I use it?
The newborn nappy is intended for lower wetting, high frequency changing that is oh so common in those first few weeks. The outer shell can be easily wiped clean and re-used if not soiled, leaving you to just switch the soaker over at change time. These nappies can be use for both day and night use, and boosters are available for periods of high wetting.

I was really excited about these. I started using them about two weeks ago on my newborn and was very happy with it. But when it comes to washing, it takes far too long to dry. I had them out in the sun all day, and it still hadn't dried. I tried the tumble dryer, but after two cycles, they're still not dry! It takes far too long!

When using on 3 weeks old baby, found that the nappy does leak even when changed every 2 hrs and the pad supplied is not enough, I have to add a second layer of thicker padding. Also, not sure it is worth using all in two nappies as the area with double gusset gets marked by both pee and poo and that point the cover needs to be changed together with the insert as that area is made of fabric, not the PU material. Disapointed, as was looking forward to have less cover washes and replacements of the inserts only.
Perfect for a cloth start

I am using them for a week now and they are super simple to use!
The fitting is great, especially if you have a smaller baby. Mine is average weight so I think it won't last very long, unfortunately. I bought them considering that my first baby (I didn't use cloth then) was born a tiny baby. However, this time my baby stayed longer "in the oven", so she was born bigger.
Fitting is ok, and easy to put the absorbents. The box comes with extra absorbents which is handy when you just have to change if wet.
Also, managed some poonamies that we had already with no leaks.
Would definitely recommend.
