Well done Michelle and thanks again to everyone who took the time to enter.

Michelle left a review for the bumGenius 4.0 nappy which is still one of the best selling nappies around.  Here’s Michelle’s review

These are our main day nappies. We have 12 of these in poppers and bought 11 V3 second hand in aplix but we mich prefer these new ones and also the poppers. The V4 are slightly larget than the V3 and seem to fit round my sons legs better. The colours are a lot brighter and they last a lot longer (we can get 6 hours out of a V4 with both inserts!).
Great workhorse day nappies that come in pretty colours. I am now looking to upgrade my V3s to some new V4s 🙂
***** 5 stars from us 🙂

FuzziBunz Nappy Reviews – Elite one-size

FuzziBunz Reviews

A few weeks ago we sent out some FuzziBunz Elite one size nappies for testing.  Here’s 3 great FuzziBunz nappy reviews from real mums who’ve tried it out for us.  Thanks to all our testers and thanks again to Claire H  for sharing her cloth bottomed baby with us in the above photo 🙂  FuzziBunz Nappies are available to buy here at Babi Pur

Angela’s FuzziBunz review

A lovely surprise arrived from Babi Pur – a new Fuzzi Bunz One size Elite nappy in Tootie Frootie to test. On opening the parcel I was a little surprised at the size of the nappy – it looked very small. The nappy is suitable from 8-35lbs and I did wonder if it would fit my 23lb one year old.

The Fuzzi Bunz Elite has a very clever elastic adjustment system a bit like the elastic waist adjusters in children’s trousers, so following the instruction I adjusted the nappy to the correct size (and to be honest still thought it would not fit) chased Benjamin around they front room and eventually got the nappy on him. It is an AMAZING FIT.  Much slimmer than his Bumgenius Birth to Potty V3 and his Flips. It fits beautifully under slim normal trousers. The elastic give much more flexibility of adjustment than traditional snaps on the rise of the nappy. The smallest setting looks suitable for newborn, being a similar size to my BG newborn nappy and I still have plenty of adjustment to allow for Benjamin’s growth.

Most of my nappies are pockets with microfiber inserts so I was intrigued with the minky inserts. They are very good, have great absorbency lasted 3-4 hours washed well, no staining and dried even quicker than the microfiber inserts. The only slight problem I had was stuffing the nappy – there is a knack to it. The gusset of the nappy is narrower than most pockets but about 2cms and it was a little tight stuffing in the inserts. I could fit in both inserts and a cotton booster. I don’t use night nappies but I don’t think this would be suitable for night use by any child other than newborn.

Benjamin was ill during the trail and had some horrible nappies as he was on antibiotics. The Fuzzi Bunz coped with everything really well, no leaks and no staining when washed.

This nappy has become my new favourite nappy. It has been admired by several friends who use cloth nappies. Am really tempted to get the Mac cheese one for some strange reason yellow appeals to me. Everyone should give them a try – as good as Bumgenius but a slimmer and I think more adjustable.

Claire A’s FuzziBunz Review

We were sent one of these nappies by the kind people at Babi pur to test. We received the nappy a few days ago, and so far it’s been on my little one twice. This nappy is a Birth to potty nappy, and comes with a shell, two minky inserts and spare elastic. The nappy is adjusted by moving the elastic inside the nappy onto different buttonholes (these are marked with numbers).

When I first received this nappy I was a bit put off, it looks rather small in comparison to some of my other nappies and I was concerned that it wouldn’t fit my little one. But I dutifully set the nappy to the appropriate sizing on the elastic. I found this rather easy and the instructions were fairly simple to follow.

Washing, washing wise this nappy is fantastic. Once off the baby you pull out the inserts and stick it in the machine (obviously after being in a bucket or wet bag) and wash in the normal way in which you wash your nappies. For those with limited drying space, this nappy is a Godsend. Seriously, the inserts came out of my machine almost dry. In fact the shell took longer than the inserts. If you want a quick drying nappy then this is it!

Performance, now the vast majority of my nappies have microfibre inserts, and, for my baby these work fine most of the time. I’d say that this nappy performs as well as the next nappy. I had it on my little one twice for about two to three hours both times and it was fine. This is about the average for a cloth nappy.

Wear, now I said earlier that I was concerned about the rise on this nappy. I needn’t have worried. This nappy fit my little one brilliantly; we’re currently using the vast majority of our nappies on the second to last snap setting (our totsbots are on the last). The rise isn’t as generous as a bumgenius, but to be honest I didn’t find that a problem. These nappies seem to fit like an itti bitti, in that they’re very trim and seem to function on a ‘low rider’ philosophy.

The feel of this nappy is very nice, the minky inserts are lovely to handle and don’t catch on my skin as microfibre tends to do. The outer of the nappy is lovely and soft and the fleece inner is just as nice. It doesn’t seem to as finely milled as other nappies I’ve come across, and I would be concerned about bobbling. But this is something that I’m sure will be tested in time.

In conclusion, this is a fabulous nappy that I’ve been very impressed with. I’ve tried pretty much tried everything under the sun and I would happily get more of these nappies. The fit is fabulous and it performs well (on both areas of containment, my little one really put it through its paces). The choice of colours is lush and there is something to please every palette. When some or my current stash comes up for replacement, I’ll be getting some more of these.

Claire H’s FuzziBunz Review

I was really pleased to be asked to review The Fuzzibunz Elite for Babi Pur.  We don’t have a Fuzzi in our collection and the style of adjustment makes this a new type of nappy for us.

The Fuzzibunz Elite has a lovely bright PUL outer, fleece lining and the most gorgeous, soft, minkie inserts.  At first, I thought adjusting the elastic was a bit fiddly, and the numbering system very slightly confusing (how the leg holes are numbered is different to how the waist holes are numbered), but once you’ve got it right, it does provide a really, really, good fit.  In terms of how it works, I would say I definitely prefer this method of changing the size of your nappy over any other BtP adjustments.  You get more size choices, a better fit and I also liked not having the poppers across the front which you get on most other BtP nappies; it looks so much nicer (like a sized nappy).

What I really did notice with this nappy, is how slim it is between the legs, a good inch or two narrower than some other pockets.  This does have one small disadvantage; I found putting the inserts into the pocket a little tricky. The width of the nappy is exactly the same width of the insert, so I found it a bit of a fiddle to make sure the insert wasn’t bunching up/folding over.  This was even trickier when I was trying to put both inserts in – I found you simply have to try and put them in at the same time as it’s nearly impossible to but the booster in after you’ve put the main insert in.  This is definitely one of those nappies where you have to put it all together before a nappy change rather than doing it all on the go.  I did find that when using just the main insert we had some wicking after an hour or so, but when I used both inserts it works really well, we haven’t had one leak.  What’s more, I found that the fleece liner felt pretty dry after use, so something is good at keeping any liquid away from the skin.

One huge bonus of this nappy is the drying time.  It says you can tumble dry them on a low heat, but they feel halfway dry when coming out of the washer, that I simply pop them on an airer (no heating on yet!) and they really are dry in a few hours.  I reckon with a little bit of heat (airing cupboard/nice day on the washing line) you could wash this nappy in the morning and be wearing it again in the afternoon.  The blurb says that these are stain and odour resistant too, so that’s always a bonus.

Pros – Lots of adjustment options so you can ensure it fits lovely – and it does fit lovely when it’s on.  Washes well, really quick drying.

Cons – Adjusting size and putting inserts can take a bit of getting used to.

Itti Bitti Minky Wet Bags

Itti Bitti Wet Bags

“Lovely and soft, beautiful fabrics. I did find the zip a bit sticky on a couple of mine but the over all design is of such good quality and has great containment. They are brilliant for wet swimsuits and cosmetics too”
