Review: Mummy Confessions
For each of the nappies in this review, both Amanda trialled them with her sons (read Amanda’s son’s Profile HERE).

How does it fit? We were given the crawler size, which honestly didn’t fit my baby well. I’ve found the weight range recommendation to suit my bub better if he lies in the middle of the range. I did buy the Toddler size and they definitely fit better, but ran a little smaller than his usual nappies. They were snug around his hips and legs but not too tight.

How long does it last? They lasted well for daytime and through the night as well. So, around 10-12 hours if needed overnight and about 4-5 hours during the day. I did find that occasionally he did smell in the morning if he had a thoroughly wet nappy, and occasionally it was wet on the cover. It may be more because he needed to size up (even from the Toddler size).

Is it good during the day time and overnight? It worked well during the day, and lasted overnight, too. I did notice a smell overnight though when the nappy was thoroughly soaked. It held well overnight and wasn’t leaking or wet.

What is the value like? Is it worth the cost? For a more Eco nappy, they run cheaper than the others, and they are cheaper than even some of the non-Eco Nappies if you purchase them in the bulk packs. It is worth the cost if you are after a more eco-nappy at a cheaper price.

Is it easy to put on and take off? Considering my child is a squirmer, they were fun to put on like any other nappy. The tabs were sometimes a little more difficult to separate, but they stuck well. It was a little harder with one hand to get open, so I recommend opening and sorting the nappy and leak guards before getting your child pinned down to change.

Are they easy to dispose of? This nappy is simple to dispose and easy to keep together as you would any other nappy. The tabs stick well to the nappy and it makes it nice and compact to throw away.

Summary of the Tooshies by Tom Nappies:
Overall, these nappies were a bit tighter fit for my baby, even into the Toddler size, so I would recommend possibly getting a sample pack before purchasing if your child is on the larger size range of the scale. They did well with absorption, however there was a little smell to them when it was thoroughly soaked. I absolutely love the designs and the fact that they are both eco-friendly AND affordable. This makes them a great option for mums who are conscious of that aspect of nappies. I would recommend these for bubs with more sensitive skin, or to mums who are looking for a more fitted nappy, or more affordable eco-option.
