The new Pop-in nappy itself is a one size birth to potty nappy available in +bamboo or +minkee, +bamboo for natural and more absorbent fibres or +minkee for super fast drying.  The sizing has been improved compared to the old bamboo version which could get a little tight on bigger babies.  Each nappy comes with 1 outer shell, 1 soaker pad and and 1 booster pad and all the parts are held in place with poppers.  The Pop-in nappy has long been a favourite of ours and many of the features remain unchanged however there are some clever and significant improvements.  The outer shell has a plethora of new fabrics inside with hydrophobic material around the leg gusset to prevent leaks, anti-wicking material around the edges and a small absorbent panel in the middle to keep moisture in the centre.  Stretchy Velcro fastenings, double leg gusset and simple poppers on the front to adjust the size.

Inside the new Pop-in Nappy


Pop-In Bamboo Why choose Pop-in nappies with bamboo inside?  Bamboo is a natural fabric which has lots of useful properties.  Bamboo is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, hypoallergenic, naturally breathable and very very absorbent, up to 3-4 times more so than cotton.  Bamboo cloth next to your baby’s bottom keeps baby feeling nice and comfortable, cool in summer and warm in winter.  Bamboo is the perfect for choice for babies who suffer from skin allergies, eczema or rashes.  All these wonderful properties make bamboo an ideal fabric for a reusable nappy, however there is a price to be paid, bamboo does take longer to dry than synthetic fabrics.


Pop-in Minkee Why choose Pop-in nappies with minkee inside?  The big advantage that the Pop-in +minkee has is the incredibly fast drying time, just a few hours and it can be air dried.  For parents with limited drying facilities this is big help.  The first thing you notice about minkee fabric is how lovely and soft it is and it stays soft even after washing.  The minkee fabric wicks moisture away from baby’s skin quickly keeping their bottoms feeling dry.  Minkee nappies aren’t as absorbent as bamboo nappies so they will need to be changed more frequently. (+minkee replaces the previous Dream Dri nappy)

So in conclusion the new generation Pop-in nappy sees some improvements to a nappy that already has a great track record as a favourite “stash” nappy.  Close have made the choice for parents easier by doing away with the different “versions” of the nappy and making the benefits of +bamboo or +minkee clearer.  There’s a nicer choice of colours and some great limited edition prints for those who want to show off their fluff!

We don’t have an exact release date but as soon as we do we’ll let you know!  In the mean time there are some ridiculous prices on the soon the be discontinued Pop-in Bamboo V2 and Pop-in Dream Dr V3

    These look pretty awesome and they seem to have addressed the little issues that stopped them being a top 5 nappy. Looking forward to trying one out.

    I’ve never tried the Pop-ins before, but they look like a more high-tech version of BG/Flips. Even though the colour range looks a little more limited than other brands, it’s a good range of pastels and deeps.

    More dark colours is good to see. NO MOO you cant have any more nappies, we have enough!

    I couldn’t get the bamboo pop-ins I did have to fit eith er of my boys well (ages 1 1/2 – 2 and 0-6) at the time, so passed them on. I did love the pastel colours though! Would be worth trying the new version to see if it fits better (and so doesn’t leak!) I’d definately go for the pastels again – love those colours (and the names too!) :o)

  5. Moobug says:

    That’s interesting to know – has anyone done a comparison of the old and new Pop-ins?

  6. Jo says:

    They’re not available yet, but we did manage to get our hands on some a few months ago and I think we’ll be posting the review/comparison later this week – Jo 🙂
