Growing Greens are fantastically absorbent nappies made of hemp. They come in two parts that popper together and dry really quickly because of this. They?re very compact and will fit discreetly under just about any clothes. You may even have people wondering if baby?s wearing a disposable!
Another impressive feature is that Growing Greens are one-size. This means that a set of them can be used from birth to potty to give you a cost-efficient real nappy solution. All you need to go with them is a waterproof wrap, and we've yet to a find a wrap with which Growing Greens are incompatible.
Size-wise, the manufacturers say these nappies fit up to 35lbs. Our youngest daughter is currently 38lbs and, although she's on the largest popper setting, they don't seem about to be outgrown.
We've been very impressed with their performance and we are delighted to be able to make them available in this country.
Growing Greens are made entirely from the softest hemp/green cotton fleece and 100% unbleached cotton thread. They feature a unique, non-PVC, hypoallergenic, poly resin snap system which offers wide adjustment for thigh and waist. Unbleached cotton with natural rubber elastic at the leg and back allow for custom fitting and superb mess containment.
The snap-in design allows for a thorough wash and quick drying time.
Each nappy includes a unique snap-in contour which can be used on its own to fit newborns up to 10 lbs. The contour features an umbilical cord cut out to promote healing for those first few weeks.
As baby grows, you can use the fitted nappy alone with the front folded down to give you the nappy size you need. In doing this you use the hidden row of poppers for fitting baby up to a weight of about 18 lbs.
When your little one is toddling, the Growing Greens nappy can be used unfolded, with the snap-in newborn contour providing extra absorbency.
Why Use Hemp?
Hemp is the perfect fibre for cloth nappies. It has four times the durability and absorption of cotton. The material contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that resist mould and bacteria, helping prevent nappy rash. Its unique breathability allows constant airflow to baby's skin.
Hemp is an amazing renewable resouce, grown without difficukty in many climates. It protects itself naturally ans so is easily sustained without the use of herbicides and pesticides. If you'd like to know more about the wonders of hemp, please contact us.
