Review: Baba+Boo Pocket Nappy

Have you ever tried to get your little one to pose for a photoshoot?

As a blogger, it’s something that I do quite often.

I’ll admit, sometimes it’s a breeze. Other times, well it doesn’t quite go to plan…

Review - Baba+Boo Pocket Nappy Humbug

Take today, for example, when I set everything up to photograph this humbug/black and white Baba+Boo reuseable nappy {very kindly gifted to us by the cloth nappy fairies over at B+B HQ}

I went for monochrome style {obviously} so a fresh white blanket, a soft baby gro left unbuttoned and tucked in a little and some black/white toys with a vision of Lily staying on the blanket and candidly playing with them whilst I snapped away.

“Arghh it must be so easy doing this with a newborn!” I laughed at Michael. “As soon as they can roll over you’ve had it, they won’t bloody keep still”

Lily In Her Humbug Baba+ Boo Cloth Nappy

It’s no secret that this baby of ours is seriously photogenic so it’s no wonder that we ended up with photos of her posing in her new cloth nappy…

Very casual chic! 😉 This girl’s got style!

But anyway, back to business and the real question which is, of course, what did we think of the new addition to our stash from Baba+Boo?

Well, if you didn’t know, I am a huge fan of fluffy bottoms i.e. cloth nappies and if you caught my post the other day, you’ll know that there’s tons of benefits to ditching the disposables (or just swapping a few nappies here and there, if you wish).

Baba+Boo offer pocket nappies for our tiny ones so each nappy comes with two microfibre inserts which you pop in to the waterproofcover when you’re ready to use it. You don’t need anything else aside from some liners to catch the smelly stuff.

Baba+Boo Cloth Nappy - Pocket InsertsThe majority of our collection is comprised of pocket-style nappies and these are my favourites by a long shot, mainly because they offer a flexible fit due to the incredibly stretchy fabric and elastic used to make the nappy.

It’s important to us that Lily is comfortable in her nappies and these would be the closest equivalent I’ve come across to the ‘active fit’ disposable versions. They allow Lily to climb, toddle, crawl and tumble to her heart’s content without a care in the world whilst I’m safe in the knowledge that her nappy is still holding in everything that it needs to {very, very important business – we’ve all been there *inserts cute poop emoji*}

We’ve had this nappy {in the totally awesome ‘Bongo Bat’ design} since Lily was tiny and we’re still using it today, almost a year later, thanks to the adjustable poppers as shown on our new humbug nappy below.

Baba+Boo Cloth Nappy - Poppers

From little babies to big babies {or toddlers, should I say!} this nappy is suitable from birth to potty {for most children, 8-35lb as a general approximation}.

For such high-performing nappies, the price isn’t too be grumbled at either. Each nappy costs just £12.95 which is a steal compared to other similar branded nappies which are closer to the twenty quid mark. There’s also free delivery if you spend over £30 {which you’ll want to, believe me…} 😛

They dry quickly {very handy!}, fair well {no signs of any wear/tear so far despite use every other day for 1yr+} and are one of my go-to nappies for seeing Lily through long car journeys and general overnight use as they’re really absorbent and the stay-dry layer draws moisture away from her skin and through on to the inserts as intended.

It’s no secret that one of the draws of cloth baby bums is how absolutely cute and adorable they look and when new prints come out, there’s usually a rush of cloth-nappy-fanatics {like myself, I must admit} scrambling to get their hands on them for their little bears.

There’s no doubt that reuseable nappies are for the fashion-forward and why shouldn’t they be? Just like your baba’s clothes, cloth nappies are washed and re-worn so it’s only right that we should be able to coo over the designs like we do baby dresses, booties and all-in-ones.

Baba+Boo have some seriously cool prints on offer for their pocket nappies and this monochrome ‘humbug’ design is no exception. Funky, bang on trend {black + white is a true classic} and brings to mind visions of Jack Skellington or Beetlejuice. Perfect for the ‘alternative’ baby.

Help to save the environment, keep your sweet ones snuggly and save yourself some cash and…do it all in style 😉

Lily - Baba+Boo Humbug Nappy

If you’re interested in these Baba+Boo nappies but still not entirely convinced {you bloody well should be!} then you can try a nappy using the B+B trial scheme.

They’ll give you a {very generous} 2 months to put the nappy through its paces and if you don’t get on with it, you can return the nappy for a full refund.

Otherwise, if you are completely besotted or looking to try cloth nappies for the first time, you can view the full range over on the Baba+Boo website.

Are you a Baba+Boo fan?

What’s your favourite print?

Now we’ve got the humbug design, we’re currently gushing over the ‘Miss Hedgehog’ nappy 🙂

There’s so many to choose from! *sigh*

P.S. The lovely people over at B+B HQ also sent us a wonderful little swimming nappy for Lily which we’ll be trying out shortly so do keep a look out for how we got on in the next few weeks!

    Ha ha, we just recently reviewed some cloth nappies and I swear I took about 100 photos and only 5 were any good – Eliza never stays still any more!
    Baba+Boo nappies are fantastic, one of my faves. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

      It’s hard isn’t it? Every time I thought I had the perfect shot she moved, hehe 😛

    These look great. I always wanted to use cloth but my husband was totally against it with our first. He’s recently agreed to let me try it (I knew I’d grind him down eventually!), so I’ll keep these in mind x

      Yay! There’s so many gorgeous prints to choose from – I’m sure you’ll have so much fun shopping for them! 🙂 X

    I love the idea of the trial scheme – what a great idea!
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

      I thought it was fabulous, perfect if you’re nervous about getting started initially or you’ve not used the brand before X

    We love a cloth bum too. I love all the Baba & Boo designs but unfortunately I could never get a good fit on my skinny boy and we always had leaks. I know lots of people that use them and love them though and Lily looks super-cute in hers.

      Oh dear, that’s such a shame but it’s true that certain brands won’t be suitable for everybody. The designs are amazing though, like you mentioned, and thank you for your lovely comment about Lily, she absolutely loves her humbug nappy! 🙂 X
