The chart below will help you to choose a diaper size based on your child’s weight. If there are some signs of an improper fit, such as leakage, a rash or red mark along the sides of your child’s hips, this means you should consider moving up a size.
- Newborn:2-4 kg
- Maxi:7-18 kg
There are many causes of diaper rash and some of the common ones are:
- Leaving a wet or dirty diaper on for too long
- Rubbing or chafing against the diaper itself
- Bacterial infection
- Allergic reaction to diapers
- The infant growing older – especially between the ages of 9 and 12 months old
- Starting to eat solid foods
- Taking antibiotics, or if you take antibiotics and are nursing

Bio-based, also known as “renewable” – this concept refers to the start of the production chain: products are made from plants and not petroleum-based. The bio-based content in the product is the fluff pulp made from wood, cotton, and the bio-based inner layer made from sugarcane and sugar beet. The packaging is made from sugarcane.
Biodegradable – this concept refers to the end of the product life cycle, after product disposal: the material breaks down and bacteria, moulds, etc. convert the material into water, carbon dioxide, methane and other by-products. The pulp and cotton inside the product are biodegradable. The bio-based plastics used in our products and packaging are not biodegradable.
Compostable – some materials are only biodegradable in industrial composting installations, not in nature (i.e. soil or water). Furthermore, in landfills, some materials – even natural ones – take a long time to degrade because the products are compressed, wet and not exposed to air or light.
Biodegradable plastic is NOT a good idea for diaper packaging. The goal should be to collect and recycle the outer packaging. When biodegradable plastics end up in recycling, there is a risk it will degrade the quality of the recycled material. That is why our bag is bio-based but not biodegradable.
No. At the end of the production chain; bio-PE (biopolyethylene) has the same chemical structure and properties as regular PE. That’s also why these two materials can be mixed and recycled together without this causing any problems. The only difference is that at the start of the plastic production chain, plant-based raw material is used instead of petroleum-based raw material.
No. The label just indicates it has 15% more cotton in the backsheet.
