Frequently Asked Questions

What nappies are used inside the nappy cake?

We only use the best branded nappies such as Huggies and Pampers in our nappy cakes. We also offer the option to upgrade your nappy cake to Eco-friendly Bio-degradable nappies by Nature Babycare.
All of the nappy cakes include size 3 nappies as standard. Size 3 nappies are designed to fit the average baby weighing 4-9kgs or 9-20lbs. The average weight of a newborn baby in the UK is approx 7lbs 8oz (3.4kgs) so we use size 3 nappies not only to allow for babies with a larger birth weight but also to allow the new parents to enjoy their nappy cake baby gift before the need to dismantle it.

What is the quality of items inside the Nappy Cake?

All of the items included in our Nappy Cakes have been vigorously tried and tested. All Nappies included are either Huggies, Pampers or Nature Babycare and all clothing is made from 100% Baby Soft Cotton*. All of the toys are CE marked and conform to European Safety Standards and are suitable from birth.
*Excluding lining, motifs, trimming & booties.
