Bare Bubs Nappies: The Great Australian Nappy Review 2017
Cheapest Nappy All Around
Disclosure: We were provided these nappies to trial in exchange for our honest review. All opinions are our own. Each nappy brand has been trialed for four days to treat each brand consistently. This post contains affiliate links which means I earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
Bare Bubs is sadly no longer selling and restocking anymore 🙁 therefore I would recommend trying either Babylove or Huggies Essentials which tend to be around the same price point and offer delivery services from Amazon.com.au. (Bare Bubs did had a few packs of small left last I knew, so one last chance to get them!)
or read about the other brands Mummy Confessions has reviewed here (and some are included in the awesome Mum & Bub Sample Box, too!
I recently discovered Bare Bubs nappies online by chance, and thought they looked interesting, so I emailed them to ask if Mumma Morrison and I could add them to our Great Australian Nappy Review and they agreed! You can see how they compare with the other nappies there in the chart!

Review: Mummy Confessions(Mumma Morrison's review is forthcoming!)
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?
With an elastic across the back and legs, it contoured well to my baby’s shape and fit comfortably. It fit well and moved well with him. It did sit a little bulky on bub at times, but this had no effect on how he moved or how well it absorbed anything.
How long does it last?
It lasted very well through the day (so 5 hours or so at a time) as well as 12 or so hours overnight with no leaks. I found it to be very reliable both night and day.
Is it good during the day time and overnight?
It did well both during the day time and overnight for my heavy wetter. I had no leaks of any kind while we trialled these (and only the random one after). They fit my baby well, and I think that is a big part of performance.
What is the value like? Is it worth the cost?
Definitely! The value is amazing, and the performance is great. I would say that they are worth the cost by far, as they work well, yet don’t cost too much.
Is it easy to put on and take off?
Given my squirmy baby, they were just as easy as other nappies to get on and take off. The tabs worked well and weren’t too fidgety , and it was easy to open and secure in place.
Are they easy to dispose of?
I found no issues with disposing of the nappies. The tabs held well and they stayed together.
Summary of the Bare Bubs Nappies:
Let me say first of all, I was first impressed by the cost (or minimal cost) of these nappies. Compared with all of the nappies we have trialled, these cost less than even the most inexpensive on the list. I was curious to see how they performed, and I was impressed! I have had absolutely no leaks with these nappies from daytime or nighttime use, and the material seems soft and great for my baby’s sensitive skin! The elastic across the back isn’t too tight and it seemed to fit my baby well and move with him. Not to mention, the adorable Echidna logo on the nappies is just super cute! Even the large size has a wetness indicator, which comes in handy for mum, dad, or someone who may not change too many nappies. The tabs faired well and weren’t fidgety and held the nappy closed and stuck when disposing. Overall, I was quite happy with these nappies and would recommend you try them at least once. The only downside I can find is that it is online ordering only. However, you can order a sample and pay shipping to try a pack, and later subscribe to get them delivered month by month.
