Proudly designed in New Zealand, Chuckles Prima nappies are your everyday, premium nappy option. A protected design, Prima modern cloth nappies are well known as New Zealand's Original Athletic Wicking Jersey nappy with the most absorbent inserts. Our nappy can be used for both daytime AND nighttime.
Ultra Versatile: Choose to use them as pocket style nappies (stuff the inserts in the pocket), or as an all-in-2 nappy (snap the inserts on the outside lining)
Without inserts, you can use the shell as a swim nappy.
Grows with your baby: Four levels of rise snaps to fit from newborn to toddler (3.5-16kgs)
Alternating Waist Snaps: As baby grows, their shape changes - this design allows a snug, improved fit around the waist and hips at any stage.
Cool & breathable: Each nappy is lined with Athletic Wicking Jersey Lining (sports mesh material), to keep your baby dry, cool, happy and comfortable. Bonus - poop slides off easily!
Quality, absorbent inserts: Proudly one of the most absorbent set of inserts on the market! Each Prima nappy comes with a set of TWO inserts - a 5 layer insert for newborns or daytime use and a 6 layer hourglass insert, for heavy wetters and overnight use. Choose to use one insert, or two inserts as required. Both are made of luxuriously soft bamboo and organic cotton material, and they snap together for easy stuffing!
High Level Leak Protection: PUL (water-resistant) tummy panel and PUL inner wings stop moisture from getting onto baby's clothes, especially if they are tummy or side-sleepers.
Double Leg Elastics (gussets): This keeps "poosplosions" in and allows extra absorbency without compromising on leg seal. Original nappies have INTERNAL double gussets (for chunkier thighs) whereas 2.0 nappies have EXTERNAL double gussets (for average to slimmer builds). If you are expecting or choosing for a newborn, we recommend the 2.0 nappies.
Larger Pocket Opening: Making nappy-stuffing a breeze... This means you can easily stuff extra inserts if more absorbency is required (usually not with our ultra thirsty inserts!)
Beautiful Prints: A large range of prints and colours to choose from!

What are the differences between our original Prima Nappy and the new Prima 2.0 Nappy?
Both nappies have the same features except for the leg guseets. Our original nappies have an internal gusset whereas our 2.0 nappies have external double gussets.
Which Prima nappy is better suited for my baby?
Suitable for all shapes and sizes, the external gussets in our Prima 2.0 Nappy provides an extra seal and an improved fit especially for babies with slim to moderate thighs.
Additionally, if using these nappies overnight for a heavy wetter, Prima 2.0 provides external double gussets to allow extra boosting without creating gaps around the legs.
Can I use Prima Nappy Shell as swim nappies?
Absolutely! Remove the inserts and you can use them as swim nappies.

Lining - Athletic jersey mesh material
