Kekoa’s consciously designed trim nappy with bilayer technology is eco-luxury at its finest. Pairing simple innovation with elegance they are not only practical and functional, but beautifully luxurious.

EASIEST POCKET TO STUFF

Bilayer technology enables even the largest of hands to seamlessly stuff pockets with no additional grip, whilst also protecting the laminate lining.

SUSTAINABILITY

PUL, made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, helps reduce manufacturing energy by 75% and water consumption by 90% (when compared to virgin polyester fabric). Each nappy saves approximately six plastic bottles from our oceans and landfill.

VERSATILITY

Functional as both a pocket nappy and snap-in (all-in-two or hybrid), with a uniquely designed anchor system to help keep inserts in place.

Dual back elastic for superior containment – functioning like a back internal gusset. Additional barrier making clean up easier by protecting hands during insert removal.

COMFORT

CoolMax® performance moisture wicking technology sits directly against your baby’s delicate skin, providing superior dryness, and is the easiest internal fabric to clean.

Plush double external leg elastics for superior softness and containment.

Original four-way flexible wings for easier fit and greater freedom to move.

ABSORPTION

High-density bamboo-cotton and bamboo terry all-natural fibre inserts provide superior absorption without bulk.

SAFETY

All of this wrapped in STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® protection so you know what touches your baby goes beyond many of the national and international requirements for chemical safety (our fabrics are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified).

Newborn Size 

Includes 1 premium nappy shell and 1 insert pair (one larger size bamboo cotton and one smaller sized bamboo terry bifold/trifold)

Suitable from approximately 2-7kg

We also stock a range of Premium One-Size nappies

Designed in Wanaka, New Zealand.

Brand new items

Due to the nature of the fabric in our flexible wings, we recommend hand washing your nappy shells with like colours (i.e. reds together, darks together) until the water runs clear. This helps prevent colour run which can occur occasionally due to excess dye in the manufacturing process.

 

Washing Guidelines 

Kekoa recommends following the Clean Cloth Nappies guidelines for washing. This helps prevent ammonia and mould build up in your nappies by warm and hot washing with appropriate detergent.

Below are the basics to get you started.

There is no need to soak your nappies, just remove wet inserts and dry pail (container with lots of holes to allow air flow i.e a basket)

If you’re washing your nappies with other hook and loop/velcro nappies we recommend adding Kekoa nappies to a laundry bag. This helps prevent the lightweight internal fabric and stretch tabs from early damage.

 

Rinsing once nappy removed

Breastmilk/formula only
  1. Once nappy is removed, there is no need to wash poos off the nappy – just remove inserts from their shell and place all in a well vented “dirty” dry pail
Once started Solids
  1. Flick as much solid poo into the toilet as possible, this is often hard when starting on solids and poos are still soft
  2. Remove inserts from their shell and place into your well vented “dirty” dry pail. Removing these before rinsing (if possible) helps keep things cleaner by not having water sodden inserts sitting in your basket.
  3. Rinse your shell using toilet water when flushing, a sprayer attached to your toilet or your laundry tap to remove any extra (it doesn’t have to be perfect). Avoid harsh scrubbing brushes, silicone is fine. We have found old school rubbing the fabric together under running water works great!
  4. Place shell in your “dirty” dry pail

Washing Routine

Hand washing one or two
  1. Follow the dry pail method mentioned previously (rinsing once nappy removed)
  2. Hand wash your one or two nappies each day in whitener free detergent and the hottest water you can handle (rinse poop off first if needed, then hand wash)
  3. Rinse clean and squeeze out excess water. Drape to let air out
  4. Add hand washed nappies to your regular wash daily or every 2-3 days as you do a load
  5. Hang shells to dry; inserts can be hung or put in the dryer

Note: This method can seem more time consuming but it's not forever! It usually won't take long before you're loving cloth nappies and that's where the dedicated short and long washes below become easier and more of a "routine".

Daily short wash (often called prewash)
  1. Once a day wash all your dirty nappies on a short cycle (30-60min) at 40-60 degrees C (104-140F) using ½ cap or scoop of approved laundry liquid or powder (whitener/bleach free)
  2. Remove nappies and place damp in a second well vented “prewashed” dry pail
  3. Add each day’s prewash to the same dry pail until you have enough for a full wash (2-4 days usually)

Note: This prewash is not the prewash function on your machine. You want a separate wash cycle that completely removes all water before doing a full wash. Confusing I know!

Full wash (every 2-4 Days)

When you have enough nappies to completely fill your washing machine give your nappies a long wash (equates to roughly 3/4 full when wet). This is usually 3 or 4 days worth of prewashed nappies.

On the last main day wash you'll do two loads, a prewash on the previous days nappies followed by a main wash with all the other prewashed nappies.

If you don’t have enough, but you're at 3 or 4 days worth of prewashed nappies, you can bulk up your load with small items like baby clothes, wash cloth, spittle cloths or hand towels. Just be sure they’re not dark/new items as the colour can run and stain your natural bamboo fabrics.

  1. Use 1 cap or scoop of approved liquid or powder (whitener/bleach free)
  2. Use a long cycle (2.5hrs+) at 40-60 degrees C (104-140F)
  3. When complete, hang all items out to dry or you may choose to put your inserts in the drier. We do not recommend adding your shells to the drier as they have a PUL coating inside which doesn’t enjoy heat.

Excellent Premium Newborn Cloth Nappy

Fits my newborn perfectly. Beautiful design. We absolutely love this nappy and all the premium Kekoa nappies we have put on our baby. They are super stylish and easy to clean in the washing machine.

Love

I purchased two to try in my first born but didn’t end up using re-Isabel’s straight away. He wore them a few times but mainly went straight to the bigger core range.

Best cloth nappies

Great size for a newborn nappy, way less bulky than other brands too.

Quality materials and trim fit

These are my second-favourite model of newborn nappy, and may become my first once I’ve experimented with the absorbency/insert configurations a bit more. Functionally, they are well-designed to prevent poonamis, with the double gusset and rear leak guard - I don’t bother buying nappies without these features now. We have had a few leg leaks of urine, and I’m unsure whether this is down to user error, my baby’s leg shape, or absorbency. However, relative to their size, the absorbency is really exceptional - these nappies are as trim as the newborn all-in-ones made by another well-known NZ brand, but with far greater absorbency.
My baby is really long, and at 7 weeks these are quite a low rise on her, but they are nonetheless more reliable than disposables at preventing leaks up the back. The low shape is likely to limit how long she can wear them, though.
Quality-wise, the PUL on these is really satiny and luxurious, and has held up well so far with a bleach-in-prewash top loader washing routine. The materials used also seem to be really skin-friendly - my baby’s minor nappy rash has cleared up while we’ve been using them, and her barrier creams have washed out really cleanly. The Cove print is super lovely - I’d love to see more prints in this pretty pastelly style.
