Thanks to Jacquie from Cheeky Cherubs who shared the photo of Cloth Shot a Day ~ October. I expected a lot more people to post photos and wasn’t sure whether or not to keep posting mine every day or not, but I did. We love cloth nappies and like to support them in any way possible. Although I have never bought anything from Cheeky Cherubs yet, they were a huge sponsor during Cloth Nappy Week 2012. I can just imagine how many Mums were excited to receive some items for their babies. Oh, and a close friend of mine from Gisborne ended up getting a few things while she was visiting over there and was quite impressed with the huge range of items so be sure to check out Cheeky Cherubs for all sorts for your babies and toddlers.
Zaedyn was super excited about trying his new BeBops nappy we received from the Nappy Lady!
As previously mentioned in CLOTH vs. Disposables, I love the idea of using a combination of inserts. BeBops uses 2 layers of microfibre and 2 layers of bamboo fleece with a very clever snap to keep them together. As a combination, these fabrics work together to create high absorbency and help prevent leaking. I did not keep track how long Zaedyn had the nappy on, but with a big sleep in between as well, he wore this nappy for quite awhile with no leaks at all.
When I took it off, the microfleece lining which sits against his skin felt dry which is exactly what I would expect. It was great to find that wees were not sitting against him. Then I pulled the inserts out and was quite surprised. Both inserts were saturated, however there were no leaks and the lining stayed dry. I only washed it once as well before our first use. What a fantastic nappy!
I am very impressed with how this nappy worked for us, and I hope that you will check out the BeBops website for a more detailed description of their one size pocket nappies to see if they might suit your needs. They also have other products including Rockin’ Green which is currently on sale. If you are following BeBops on Facebook, you will be able to keep up with current sales. Plus, there are variety of posts about yummy gluten-free, dairy, and vegan food at the moment due to Tash’s elimination trial for her breastfed baby.
As I was about to post this earlier, I came across a very cool video on How to use BeBops One Size Pocket Nappies which tells you pretty much everything you need to know! After watching it, I learned that I should be folding up the bottom of the inserts a bit as we have the nappy set on Medium at the moment. Thanks to the Nappy Lady and BeBops for this opportunity to try a very effective NZ made nappy.
