Alcmena V1.5 pocket nappies features:
1. Customisable Absorbency
Each nappy comes with the following:
- 1x 5-layer Hemp (hourglass) insert; and
- 1x 5-layer Bamboo (rectangular) insert
Use one or the other, or both to achieve the perfect absorbency for your little one
Some quick tips:
- If using the rise snaps to size down the nappy, we recommend not snapping the inserts in at the front (only the back, if at all) so that the inserts don't pull the front of the nappy down
2. Stay-Dry Pocket Lining
These nappies feature an athletic wicking jersey ("AWJ") pocket lining. By stuffing the insert(s) into the pocket, you can experience all the benefits of AWJ as it draws away the moisture and keeps your baby's bottom cool and dry.
3. Double-Ended Pocket Openings
It is super easy to stuff these nappies with its wide pocket opening at the front and back! Stuffing nappies has never been easier!
4. Tummy Elastic
Generally a tummy gap is fine, but these nappies will get you that extra awesome fit with a tummy elastic that minimises that gap!
5. Double Gussets
The built-in double gussets on the jersey lining provides an extra barrier against any explosions escaping from these nappies.
6. Front and Back PUL Flaps
The front and back flaps are waterproof PUL so that any moisture is channelled up and under the flap, keeping your bub's tummy and back nice and dry.
7. One-Size-Fits Most
These are a slightly trimmer nappy than Almena’s 3.5 Wipe Clean nappies, fitting from 3-17kg. The shell is slightly smaller as it does not need to accommodate as much absorbency, and is perfect for achieving a trim fit without a lot of bulk.
Alcmena was set up by Kang and Eunica, a Sydney-based couple passionate about making a social and environmental difference! They started Alcmena because they wanted it to be a self-sustaining avenue for real change.
Alcmena Donate (a minimum of)10% of all profits to a charity nominated by their customers each year!
”Our nappies are designed in Australia - the features are created by me (Eunica) and the prints are either sourced in-house (i.e. my creative husband, Kang) or by other talented artists. The manufacturing is done ethically overseas in China through companies with whom we have long-standing relationships. We chose this path as it allowed our nappies to be more affordable and available to more families. We are completely transparent about how our nappies are made, so please feel free to ask any questions.
We created Alcmena so we could do our little bit to make the world a better place - profits are nice, but money alone has no lasting impact. It's what you do with it that does.” Eunica
Alcmena nappies are sent directly from China to AnniePooh and not to Australia and then on to Ireland!!
