Washing & Drying
How should I store my nappies?
How should I wash my nappies?
It is important that you wash all Bambino Mio products in accordance with the washing instructions on the individual garment label. You must remove any excess soiling before washing your nappies. We recommend washing your nappies at 40°C using the recommended amount of non-biological washing detergent. Do not use fabric softener when washing as this can affect the absorbency of your nappies. Please note that bright colours may fade over time. "We recommend adding one scoop (15mL) of miofresh nappy cleanser to your washing detergent drawer. This will help freshen and deodorise your nappies whilst washing. "
To get the best out of your nappies we recommend washing regularly at 40°C with one scoop of miofresh nappy cleanser and air drying them. Washing regularly at higher temperatures and frequent tumble drying can result in premature deterioration of your nappies.

How should I dry my nappies?
We recommend air drying your nappies away from direct heat. Your nappies may be tumble dried on a low/cold setting. However, continuous tumble drying and contact with direct heat may cause your nappies to prematurely deteriorate and can reduce the performance of your nappies. Do not iron your nappies. Remember, if you are using the miosolo all-in-one nappy to pull out the absorbent core from inside the nappy as this will help it dry quicker!

Performance & Fit
My nappies are leaking, why?
There are a number of reasons why you could be experiencing nappy leakage:
a) Are you changing often enough? You need to change your reusable nappy every 2-4 hours just like a disposable. As your baby gets bigger you may find you need to change your nappy more regularly.
b) Are you using a nappy liner? Ensure that your nappy liner lays flat on top of your nappy and do not fold the nappy liner to create a double layer.
c) Are you using any nappy creams? We recommend you only used water-based creams when using reusable nappies as the oils in the product can reduce the absorbency of your nappies. If using a water-based nappy cream, only apply a thin layer and always use a nappy liner.
d) Have your nappies been prepared correctly? Have you prewashed your nappies at least once before you have started using them? Check that the absorbent core is lying flat inside the miosolo all-in-one nappy. Ensure that you are using the correct size miosoft two-piece nappy and that it has been folded correctly.

e) The fit of your nappies may need to be adjusted. If your nappies feel too tight or loose they may need adjusting. Treat your nappies like a piece of clothing, it should not be too tight nor too loose. Please ensure you are using the correct size of nappy. If you are using the miosolo all-in-one nappy you can use the poppers to adjust the length of the nappy and angle the hook & loop fastenings to change the size of the leg holes to suit your baby. If you are using the miosoft two-piece nappy ensure your onesize nappy is folded correctly and your baby is in the correct size nappy cover. Click for user guide.
Please ensure that the nappies fit snugly against your baby’s legs and tummy. By adjusting the angle of the hook & loop tabs you can alter the size of the leg openings to make them bigger or smaller.
If using the miosoft two-piece nappy check that the nappy is completely tucked inside the nappy cover at the waist and leg openings.
f) Your nappies may not have enough absorbency. As your baby grows you may need to add more absorbency to your nappies. Adding a nappy booster is a great way to maximise the absorbency of your nappies. If you have tried a mioboost (nappy booster) and this is not working, you may need to restore your nappies to their original absorbency by "strip washing" them. Please see the 'WASHING & DRYING' section of this page to see more information about strip washing your Bambino Mio nappies.
