Review: Mummy Confessions (See Mumma Morrison's review here)
For each of the nappies in this review, both Amanda and Fi trialled them with their sons (for their profiles and an idea of how the nappies sat with each child, read Amanda’s Profile HERE and See Mumma Morrison’s profile HERE).
How does it fit?
These fit quite well and pulled up very easily. The stretchy sides were flexible and able to move with my squirmy baby and keep up with him. It wasn’t too tight or too loose.
How long does it last?
This nappy lasted the normal amount of time I keep nappies on during the day with minimal leaks (around 4 hours or so). I tried it as a nighttime nappy, however it seemed to leak some of the time before the night was through.
Is it good during the daytime and overnight? Daytime it lasts well, so long as my child is changed on time (as he is a heavy wetter). However, nighttime, it doesn’t work for him, as he generally is even more heavy wetting at night, and it is harder to pull on a nappy pant with a sleeping baby. It leaked occasionally at night if I didn’t change about halfway through.
What is the value like? Is it worth the cost?
For a daytime nappy-pant that is easy to get on and tear off, it’s great value, as it tends to be on the cheaper side compared to other nappy-pants. It is worth the cost.
Is it easy to put on and take off?
It is quite easy to put on a wiggly toddler and easy to tear off as well. I wouldn’t recommend pulling off a soiled nappy-pant, however, because that could end in a big mess. Be sure to check the nappy before you decide to pull it off rather than tear the sides!
Are they easy to dispose of?
Once you’ve torn the sides, it’s actually fairly difficult to roll up and keep together (especially if soiled or with wipes). If you don’t tear the sides, it’s easier to keep together to dispose, but still not entirely easy. I would recommend having a nappy-sack to throw away if you use these nappies. That will make the disposal simple and easy.
Summary of the Babylove Nappy Pants
Overall, Babylove nappy pants were a good daytime option for an easy to use pull on nappy for a wiggly toddler. If you’re having trouble pinning your child down for a change, these are a good option. The comfort seemed good as well as breathability, and it moved with my baby. It did leak a little, but that comes with the territory of trying to keep up with a constantly squirming baby. For wet nappies, it’s perfect for changing and getting on with the day. Soiled nappies are more of a challenge as far as disposal goes (and you can’t just pull it off), but these are a brilliant option especially for younger children who are on the go and possibly toilet training. I will admit, I used some on my child who is day toilet trained, and it was a good option for nighttime as a just in case as well for that.
