??? THE FIT ???
We are often asked the question "What is the fit of your diapers?"
The answer to this question is simple. Our fit is unlike any other brand because our diapers are very special due to our Evolution lamination, which was developed, created and is exclusive to LPF. This manufacturing method makes the diapers very flexible and stretchy, which is suitable for both mini babies and chubby babies.

How do pre-orders work?
Several new models are offered every Wednesday night.
Pre-order products are available from Wednesday 8:00 p.m. and will remain on the site until the maximum quantity set is reached.
A maximum of 20 O/S diapers and 10 N/B diapers per model will be manufactured allowing the rarity and diversity of our products.
The deadline for your order to be part of the last pre-order production is the Sunday following the pre-order. All orders placed on or after Monday will be part of the production of the next pre-order.
How do I care for my washable diapers and WSN?
Put away your washable diapers and soiled napkins in a dry and ventilated place;
Throw away stool and do not rinse or soak;
Wash every two or three days, and run a short wash cycle in cold water, without laundry soap;
Run a second wash cycle, long with hot water, with the recommended amount of soap for a heavily soiled load;
Washable diapers can be tumble dried, which is recommended from time to time in order to tighten the seams and thus prevent leaks. Do not handle them when they are hot;
Do not use fabric softener or soap containing fabric softener;
Do not use bleach;
Do not use diaper rash cream containing any form of petroleum jelly or paraffin;
The product warranty is limited to manufacturing defects, and is applicable for 1 month following the purchase.
- There is no warranty on used products.
What are the probable causes of leaks?
There are so many causes, or combinations of causes, which makes it really difficult to isolate only one.
The first thing that comes to mind is the diaper. Yes, Yes, it can be a cause, regardless of the construction, origin, components and manufacturing. But when you think about it, a pocket diaper is just a bag in which you put an absorbent material (hemp, bamboo, cotton, microfiber). If the diaper plays well its role of bag, and the seams, snaps and elastics do their job well, the diaper should not be questioned unless there is a problem with the PUL (delamination, cracking, drying out).
The second possible cause is the insert. For the insert to be fully efficient, it must go through a range of preparations; a dozen washes, a scrubbing, and a place to keep it dry. The installation is also very important. It must lie flat and rest on each side of the elastics, and make sure that it does not clump in the middle of the diaper, which would leave a lot of room for pee to flow in and out of the diaper.
In our opinion, the insert is the most important part of the diaper. We talk a lot about absorption capacity (17oz, 22oz...). Sure, it is important to know how many ounces of liquid our insert can soak up, but we too easily forget a very important factor, which is the absorption speed. If your baby has a pee flow that is close to the absorption speed of the insert, there is no problem. However, if the flow rate is higher than the absorption speed, pee being a liquid and liquids having the property of always looking for the fastest way, if the insert cannot manage the surplus, the latter will find another way. We can add to this factor that the more saturated the insert will be, the more its absorption speed will be reduced.
The baby's position can also be a cause. If the baby is in a sitting position and all his weight is on the insert, the latter becomes much less absorbent, like a crushed sponge that no longer absorbs anything. If he is lying on his back or on his stomach, the pee will inevitably try to go where gravity will take it.
The frequency of diaper changes is also a factor. The more a baby grows, the more the volume of pee increases, so you will have to adjust the frequency of diaper change to the amount of your little pee-pee, because changes every 4 hours will quickly become insufficient!
It is very common for a baby to pee 15 or 20 seconds after being changed so after a few seconds a daytime insert will be quickly saturated if another pee occurs 20 or 30 minutes later, so 2 pees in less than 30 minutes, which will put a strain on any insert. So imagine in 2 or 3 hours! There will probably be 4 or 5 pees of 5 to 7 ounces each, so more than 20 ounces of pee for a daytime insert that normally absorbs between 17 and 22 ounces.
We can ask ourselves a few questions when we notice that we have a leaking problem with our diapers, to try to identify the problem and find a solution:
- It is important to send it to the dryer from time to time in order to tighten the fibers and the seams.
- Where it's leaking from will help us pinpoint the problem. If the diaper is leaking through the thighs, then we can look at our fit, if it is leaking through the seams, snaps or the band on the buttock, then we have to look at the saturation of the insert and its placing in the pocket. Don't forget that PUL is a fabric that breathes and contains micro perforations, an overly saturated insert will eventually allow moisture to pass through the diaper.
- If so, consider that it needs to be changed. If it is saturated in the center, and urine goes through the insert from edge to edge, also consider that the diaper must be changed.
- Normally, the inserts must be washed about ten times before they reach their full absorption potential.
- Please note that Chinese made inserts are not recommended. They are sometimes too large for the crotch and can create pressure on the seams.
- Finally, we can look at the fit. The front fold must be well raised to the top in order to fit the thigh all around. If you are not sure despite these tips, do not hesitate to contact us.
