How would you explain ‘napper’ in the context? Angelino has a girl he calls his wife, but she looks too young, in her thin, short dress. To cover her breasts she wears a green nobbled sweater, even in the heat. Their baby wears old shirts torn up for nappers. He was born last month, here in the encampment. The girl won’t talk about it. How would you explain ‘napper’ in the sentence: …torn up for nappers? Thanks!

Nappers = nappies. This is clear from the context.

In the US they are called diapers.

Sorry, I don't know for sure. Searching for "napper" online only brings up things like cribs. In this sentence though, it seems like napper just refers to the clothes they put on the baby.
