How to wash your baby nest 

The Bubnest baby nest consists of three parts which are cleaned separately - a cover, a bolster and a mattress. The cover and the bolster are made out of GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton, and the mattress out of GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) certified natural latex. In baby nests sold after September 2020 the bolster is made out of certified organic cotton fabric and organic silk cotton filling. 

Before wash, open the nest at the bottom and gently untuck the mattress from the inner pocket. Pull out the mattress. Unzip the zipper on the inside of the cover to access the bolster. Untuck the ends of the bolster from the cover and pull out the entire bolster.

The cover: Machine wash below 30°C, tumble dry low or air dry
The mattress: Hand wash with mild soap by squeezing soiled area, air dry in shade
If you have an organic cotton bolster:  You will have this version if the bolster has ribbons. Untie the ribbons and spot wash soiled area, air dry in full sun or with a hair dryer. Do not leave damp as the unbleached and untreated organic wadding might stain the bolster. The stains will go out when washed again. Use your hands to separate and fluff up the washed wadding if needed once dry.
If you have an organic silk cotton bolster:  You will have this version if the the bolster is like a long sausage and does not have any ribbons. Spot wash soiled area, air dry in full sun or with a hair dryer. Do not leave damp. Use your hands to separate and fluff up the washed wadding if needed once dry.

Like you and me, the nest likes fresh air and sunshine. Never leave the nest damp for a long time as mould may develop, therefore keep an eye out for wet spots and make sure the nest stays dry. Liners are good for absorbing the occasional baby juice and are easy to wash.

The organic materials in the baby nests do not contain any harmful chemicals to improve the performance of the material. Your bub can rest in a chemical free, safe environment, which was created with your bub’s health in mind. We love this planet and we want to leave it better than we found it.
