How Do I Use It? Any Tips?
How to prepare for first use
We recommend washing and drying your La Petit Ourse Pocket shells one time before use. Be sure to fasten any aplix (hook & loop) closures before washing. That's it!
Because bamboo/cotton/hemp retains its natural oils, it's important to remove this waxy outer fiber layer before using them for the first time. We recommend washing the bamboo inserts with hot sudsy water and drying them in the dryer at least three times before their first use. (That's wash - dry - wash - dry - wash - dry). To test if they're ready to use, make a cupped pocket in the insert and pour half a cup of water into it. If the water is not readily absorbed, then they should be washed and dried more. The inserts typically will get more absorbent with several more washes.
We recommend washing your bamboo inserts by themselves during this break-in period (or with other diapers that also need to have these oils removed). This will reduce pilling and prevent the oils from the bamboo/cotton from coating other diapers, causing them to repel water, rather than absorb it.
