Libby Lou Rose is one of the amazing Work at Home Makers (WAHM) we have featured in our Spotlight on a WAHM series. These nappies are an all in two (AI2) style nappy, meaning the nappy comes in two parts. The shell and inserts. All nappies come with a snake and a booster. Using only the best quality thread, snaps, elastics and fabrics, Libby Lou Rose also do their best to support Australian designers and fabric suppliers. These nappies use wide elastics in the nappy shell to ensure minimal marks around babies legs, back and tummy. To further reduce and minimise the chances of red marks, they also case the elastics in such a way that means there are at least four (4) layers of fabric between babies skin and the elastics.
All Libby Lou Rose fabrics are prewashed before cutting, and then again (with no detergent) once the nappies and inserts are complete. All bamboo is soaked overnight before being hot washed and hot tumble dried 3 times meaning the inserts have had 4 washes before being dispatched to the customer. This means nappies and inserts are ready to use as soon as they are received – no prepping needed. This also means the vast majority of any shrinkage in fabric has also occurred. Inserts will reach full absorbency after another couple of washes.
We only have a few stunning pieces left from our Libby Lou Rose collection as follows:
the newborn nappy generally fits from 2kg to 7+kg depending on the build of your child. It has 3 snap down rise options for a great customisable fit.
The two newborn nappies we have remaining are Floral & Koi.
Ultimate One size Fits Most (OSFM)
This is a true OSFM fitting from approximately 3.5kg to 19+kg depending on the build of the child. This nappy can be used from newborn up to toilet training. It isn’t super bulky on newborns like many OSFM, yet still fits great for toddlers. Because of the longer leg elastics, it is also a great fit for both chunkier and skinny babies and toddlers.
The OSFM has four rise settings to fit a wide range of sizes. It is a very versatile nappy fitting tiny newborns nice and trim, and yet the range is so nice that if is a great trim nappy for toddlers too.
The two Ultimate OSFM nappies we have remaining are Woodland Babes, and A Knights Tale. These both have amazing on the bum (OTB) placements!
These mini wetbags are approximately 22cm x 23cm and feature a printed OUL outer with a plain PUL inner. They are the perfect size for any of your nappies, with space left over for a few wipes too. The mini wetbags have so many uses.
We only have one beautiful mini wetbag left in the Fresco print.
Nappy Pod Wetbag / Toiletries Bag
These Nappy Pod / toiletries bags measure approximately 14cm x 21cm x 12cm and are made with a wipeable PUL lining. They can be used to hold toiletries, make up, or even nappies and wipes. The water resistant PUL makes the perfect toiletries bag as even if your shampoo decides to explode, it wont get out of the toiletries bag. If this occurs, the bag can also be easily wiped clean at your destination, and also thrown in the wash when possible / necessary. Pods come with a matching removable zipper pull tag.
We only have one Nappy Pod wetbag remaining. It is in the Pirates Life print, and features a stunning treasure map removable zipper pull tag.
About the WAHM
Based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Angela is the maker behind Libby Lou Rose. Angela moved from the UK to Australia back in 2016 with her husband and children. Angela was a cloth nappy user with all of their children, and whilst she had previously considered starting her own cloth nappy business, the timing had never been right. When baby number four came along in 2018, she decided it was the perfect time to take the plunge. Angela has a love of fabric, giving a huge range to her customers to choose from. She prides herself in attention to detail, and quirky touches to the things she makes.
