FAQs

Q: Are puddle pads pre-lanolised? A: No. See below for more details on lanolin, and why you should lanolise you pad.

A: The puddle pad only needs to cover the area where the baby might wet, therefore they dont need to be the size of the whole mattress. Smaller pads can be used in slings and in seats, or as changing mats. Larger pads can also be used as play mats, baby massage or yoga mats. I do make custom size pads but see the other FAQ below about custom sizes .

A: REPURPOSED WOOL: single layer (large or small) are usually best for younger babies, or for use as a mattress protector under the bedsheet, unless stated in the listing - some single layer pads are good for all ages if they are really thick (the listing will tell you). Double layer pads are best for older children or babies who have larger urine output, since the two layers give the best protection against liquids. ORANANIC WOOL: suitable as a single layer for all ages. If in doubt, just check the product listing or convo me.

A: Organic puddle pads are super soft and can be used directly against babies skin. This makes them the best option for situations where you want to lie your baby directly on the pad without a cover sheet, such as when you are using the pad for nappy free time, as a play mat, changing pad or in bed for night time EC and breastfeeding. They are also best for use in a sling or seat beacuse they are so soft. Repurposed wool can be irritating to the skin for some people - it depends how sensitive you are - but I recommend that for use in a bed they be placed underneat the bed sheet. This will protect your mattress. Some repurposed pads are very soft, and if they can be used against the skin it will say this in the listing itself.

A: All the wool pads in my shop (organic and repurposed) can be washed in the washing machine on a wool cycle, or by hand. A gentle wool detergent is recommended and washing below 40 degrees is important to avoid shrinkage. Remember, you will only need to wash it if it is soiled or once it starts to smell - since wools natural properties will mean it can go through several wettings without needing a wash.

A. I love Sheepish Grins Lanolin which you can buy for around £12. Solid lanolin also has the advantage of being non-diluted in other fats, so you get more for your money. Liquid lanolin, I like Disana. But there are plenty of brands available and as long as they are 100% lanolin it will work fine.

A. No, but doing so will help it work to its best. Lanolin (originally on the sheep) is nature's way of waterproofing wool and will really help keep your item leak-proof and fresh-smelling. In small amounts it will moisturize and soften wool, in bigger amounts it will repel water. It will mean you do not need to wash it after each wetting, which will save you time and money.

Yes I can BUT I only recommend sizing up to 100x100cm. Larger pads can be costly, are more cumbersome to change , wash and lanolise , and you only really need them under where your child sleeps . If they roll around a lot , a few strategically placed pads will work and save you time, effort and cost. Alternatively , I also recommend buying 1-2 smaller pads and placing them side by side under where your child sleeps.

I made several pairs for my daughter and her friend. I would make the waistband pattern a little wider, but other than that, they fit great!

Just finished making my first pair and trying them on my son. He is 18 months and these seem like they will fit for a while. They make for a very easy diaper change and are Super cute! Thanks!!
