Tickle Tots All-in-Two Nappy
The Tickle Tots All-in-Two is a two-part nappy system consisting of an outer waterproof shell with ‘snap-in’ absorbent boosters. The outer layer shells can be used a couple of times before being washed by simply wiping them down between changes (if not soiled or wet) and snapping in a clean set of boosters. This makes the Tickle Tots All-in-Two a very versatile nappy and reduces the amount of washing you need to do. Each shell comes with a set of two boosters, one large and one small. These can be used alone or snapped together for maximum absorbency. The boosters are made from bamboo fabric and are really easy to use. You can also add more boosters if you need to. There is a double gusset on the legs which helps prevent leaks. This is a birth-to-potty nappy with rise snaps on the front to adjust the size. They will fit your baby from approximately 9lbs to 35lbs so they are a great investment. I highly recommend these nappies – they are soft, a slim fit and easy to use.
Seedling Multi-Fit Pocket Nappy
This is a fantastic nappy with a lovely design and a good fit. It’s a pocket nappy so it hasa soft and breathable waterproof cover with a bamboo prefold (a piece of fabric that you can fold to suit your requirements) and microfibre booster. I really liked the folded absorbent core which was flexible because you can fold it the way you need to and it was quick-drying. The wrap can be reused (unless it is soiled) which makes it very practical and reduces washing. You can use the microfibre booster as well if you need the increased absorbency and other boosters are also easily inserted. There are three sets of size-adjusting snaps so this nappy should fit most babies from birth through to potty training.
TotsBots Wet and Dry Nappy Bag
This wet bag is made up of two separate bags that popper together so you can keep your dry and wet nappies separate when out and about. I could fit a day’s worth of nappies in the main compartment which made it really useful for taking out with me or for taking to nursery for the day. It’s easy to wash – you just put the whole large bag in the washing machine with the dirty nappies. There’s a big loop so the bag can be hung up out of the way. The waterproof fabric is made out of recycled polyester yarn, repurposing plastic waste that was destined for landfill. Six plastic bottles are used in the production of each nappy bag which is great upcycling. As well as being practical and easy to use, it’s also attractive and I love the bright colours.
