Our desperate search for a night-time cloth nappie that works!
I got in touch with Zoe over at Babykind and she was keen to help us end our search. Zoe was very helpful, kind and polite, excellent customer service was recieved. Zoe sent us three of their Real Easy Nappies to test and review. These nappie's can also be used for day time, and as they come for a 'light' bedtime wetter, or just add one of your regular inserts into their roomy pockets for night-time use.
They have so many gorgeous colours/patterns/designs to choose from. So i was very excited when received three of them!!! My favorites from the stunning collection :)
Plum Red Minky
Citrus Spots Minky
Minky Summer Flowers designs
There are five sizes to choose from;
Extra-Small 4 - 12lb (1.8 - 4.5Kg)
Small 7 - 18lb (3.2 - 8.2Kg)
Medium 15 - 30lb (6.8 - 13.6Kg) *these are what we used
Large 30 - 45lb+ (13.6 - 20.5Kg+)
Extra-Large 45lb+ (20.5Kg+)
With the poppers giving a snug,secure and adjustable fit, most baby's would only ever need the small and medium until they're potty trained. That saves alot of money, rather than having to buy a whole new batch of nappy's every six months or so.
The super soft Minky outer is really luxurious to feel, doubled with a stretchy,anti-wicking waterproof layer that's silky and smooth. There are two built in inserts, one a super fluffy double layered micro terry and the other a triple layered organic cotton flip out. Combining the latest fabric technology for top performance, with the natural benefits of organic cotton. A super soft fleece lined inside, protective against staining, soft against baby and keeps them dry. No bulky seems around the legs or back, giving a comfortable 'bulk-less' fit.
They came with some very clear and helpful instructions for usage,washing and care (info) so i washed and dried them as per the instructions, anxiously waiting to get them on Lydia! I didn't have to wait to long as they dried in the same amount of time as a typical two parter nappy does.
Then the next test was for me to pick which one to use first! They're all gorgeous!
We finally decided to go with the Summer Flowers design. Lydia seemed pleased with the choice, smiling at the nappie and looking at the brightly coloured flowers.
I was very pleased with what a great fit they give, very snug,secure and comfortable for baby. An extra row of poppers on the side is an excellent idea as some other branded nappies pop together with only one row and the sides seem to slip down,poke out, the inserts move or bunch up. Not this one! I was very pleased at how generous, yet 'bulk-less' it was, some night nappies make baby look like the Michelin man once dressed! This was like any other normal sized pocket nappie :)
With lots of failed night-nappy trials, Lydia being little miss fidget bum and having a dodgy tummy bug, I was slightly dreading the whole night in a cloth nappie! I added one more small extra bamboo insert and a re-usable fleece liner, the liner is not needed but i didn't want to ruin the inside on the first go!
But in the morning i woke up to.....No leaks! No exploding poo all over everything, Nothing! Not even a dribble of pee escaped, this nappie stayed in the right position all night! I thought the flip-out insert would've needed a popper or two at the top to hold it in place, but it didn't. Thanks to the super absorbancy and excellent fit, not a slip, twist, lump or bump was out of place in the morning. I was so surprised and happy, i even did a little dance around the nappie! Hehehe :)
These ''new-generation'' are little miracles! I am definitely wanting more in the next size up, should Lydia grow out of them before potty training :)
