  • What are the washing instructions?

    Lodger products are either made of 100% cotton or Polyester. You will find the washing label on the inside of your product.To keep your products in great quality we have the following washing advise.

    Cotton
    To prevent cotton from shrinking we advice to soak your product in cold water for 2 hours before washing it at 40°C. Bedding products, like sleeping bags, fitted sheets, blankets can be washed on 60°C, when it is really dirty. We only recommend to put your products in the dryer when it is really neccessary. Only on a cooling level. We discourage the use of fabric softener.

    Sleeping bags and swaddle sleepsacks can be washed inside out in a closed washing bag on 40°C in the washing machine.

    Polyester
    Polyester can best be washed by hand or a maximum of 40°C in the washing machine. We really discourage the use of a dryer.

    Products like the Bunker and Mini Bunker can be washed individually or closed really well. Due to the velcro straps, it can prevent damaging other products.

    Walkers
    Our leather baby shoes can best be cleaned by steaming with water and very softly make clean with a Suede brush. We always recommend to go to a shoe maker for more advise.

    When you deviate from our washing instructions, we cannot take responsibility when your products has been damaged.

  • Does my child need to wear a jacket if I go outside with them in the Wrapper?

    In principle, the Wrapper replaces your child's jacket. Because the Wrapper is easy to open and close you can regulate the child's temperature quite well. If you go outside with the Wrapper you do not need to dress your child extra warmly. If it is nice weather outside you may also partially fold open the Wrapper. Because the Wrapper is made with 100% polyester knitted fleece, the material has a very high level of air permeability and good heat regulation.

  • Is a Bunker not too warm in the summertime?

    This four season foot muff consists of two parts. A soft, removable inner lining (Booster) and a warm outer layer. By using the two layers together or separately the Bunker is suitable for many different weather conditions. On cold, harsh winter days, you use them both together. If it's a bit less cold, you can use just the fleece foot muff without the inner lining. Is all you need a soft little seat for in the summertime, then you can use only the inner lining. The Bunker is made of knitted fleece, which is especially developed for Lodger and uniquely permeable to air and breathes well.

    Does this answers your question?
    YesNo
  • Can the Bunker be used in any pram or buggy?

    The Bunker is a universal foot muff and can be used in any pram or buggy with a 5-point harness. In this way, you can make extra long use of the Bunker, because when you go from using a pram to a buggy you can keep using the same Bunker.

  • What are the draw strings for on my Bunker?

    By pulling on the draw strings you can fashion a hood. Babies loose most of their heat via their heads. By simply drawing the strings, and placing them in the special pockets, you can safely cover your baby's head so that he is protected against the cold weather whenever necessary. When it is cold, your baby can always be safe and warm in their foot muff.

    Does this answers your question?
    YesNo
  • How long can I continue using a Bunker?

    Because the Bunker is a universal and multifunctional foot muff, you can use it for a very long time. When you are no longer using the pram and your child is still in the buggy, you can still use your foot muff in it. As long as your child is still in a buggy, you can guaranteed enjoy the Bunker. Compare this with other foot muffs, which you can only use for a few months or a year.

    Does this answers your question?
    YesNo
  • What is the difference between the Bunker and other foot muffs?

    The Bunker is a variation on the Wrapper which uses the same wrap method. Using this simple wrap method the Bunker can easier to use than other foot muffs with for example zippers. To place your child in the buggy, all you have to do is fold over the fleece parts and your child is in place. The whole Bunker opens and closes easily with Velcro; no grabbing for shoes, socks or pieces of biscuits. And when you go inside, all you need to do is open the Bunker.

    The summer sleeping bag is made for spring and summer. They are made with hydrophilic cotton and therefore have a TOG value between 0.5 and 0.6.
