Bambo Nature eco-friendly baby nappies at a glance:
Bambo Nature nappies are soft, comfortable, and keep even the most sensitive skin dry. The nappies are designed with a super-absorbent core including latest channel technology that leads moisture away from baby's skin and holds up to multiple wettings - even overnight. The convenient wetness indicator changes colour and makes it easy to see when a change is needed. The flexible waistband and latex-free leg cuffs help the nappy stay in place for baby's comfort and freedom of movement.The nappies are dermatologically tested and certified according to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, Asthma Allergy Nordic, the FSC™ and the EU Ecolabel.
How did this product make your life easier?
Emma: The product is easy to use and very durable. The feel of the product is seems high quality. There were no leaks throughout the testing of this product and the yellow line went blue indicating the need for a nappy change. Nappy changing was easy to use and would recommend this product.
Jazzmin: This nappy goes above and beyond expectations, it’s thick non leak edges and soft outer and inner are amazing, the outer frills fit snug to babies legs but don’t leave marks asif to tight.
Kelly: It does the job that it is intended to do very well so you feel confident that your baby is protected from any disasters. My baby is on the move now and has proved to be a comfortable fit with zero leaks. It has also proved to work 12 hours overnight. It also fills me with confidence that this nappy is designed to minimize the risk of a rash.
Would you recommend this to other parents?
Georgina: I liked the fact the product was made from the sustainable resource of bamboo and was therefore more environmentally friendly. So I would recommend it to a mum who wanted to make a small change to be more eco conscious. The wetness indicator is good for when you need to know for sure if your child is passing urine like when they are unwell. Pack size is reasonable, fit is good and the design is minimalistic.
Melanie: Unfortunately I could not recommend these nappies to any friend or other mums. As I mentioned earlier, I do really like the fit and feel of them and the eco credentials are a really great bonus. However the fact that we had several leaks, both during the day and night, means I can’t recommend them. I didn’t feel confident leaving my daughter in them for very long or when out and about in case we had an accident.
Kelly: It is a no fuss nappy that is designed with the environment in mind, which I am all about so yes. It is made with no ingredients known to be harmful to health or the environment and they are very soft. I also love the simple plain design and the cute image on the front of each nappy which changes with each size.
Would you choose this product above all others on the market?
Nicola: I would choose the Bambo nappies above others in the market due to their eco-friendly credentials. Where possible, I will opt to use environmentally friendly products and these nappies are kind to both the delicate baby skin and the environment.
Georgina: Overall this is a good product within its category with lots of positives from an environmental point of view as well as being a decent nappy. However the main issue with this product is the price point. The price per nappy is around double that of the cheaper and better performing mamia nappies. I suspect most people are more concerned about cost than eco credentials and I can buy twice as many mamia nappies as I canbambo ones. However if you chose a big brand like pampers then the price difference is minimal and you may be convinced to switch. Price is key in this market.
Emma: Whilst the product is great and easy to use and has all the same benefits as other leading brands such as pampers, the cost of the product appears to be slightly higher than that of the leading premium brands. For that reason, I would be reluctant somewhat to pay a bigger price for an unknown product compared to some of the more well known brands of nappies.
What changes would you make to this product?
Melanie: The improvement for me would definitely need to be the leak protection, specifically at the back of the nappy. Almost all the leaks we had were out of the top at the back so if this could be improved to make it more secure then that would be brilliant. If this was improved I think it would be a great all round nappy and would be great to be able to buy one that is more eco friendly than the normal brands.
Georgina: Firstly I would like to see a more competitive price. Even reducing by 25% would make more people likely to use this product and make a positive switch for the environment. As it stands you have to have a reasonable income to afford to consciously make that switch and is not attainable for the average family. For an eco brand it is disappointing that the outer package does not seem to be recyclable in any way.
Samantha: There is no denying that there is a higher cost with these eco-friendly nappies. In an ideal world I would reach for these nappies every time. However, they are simply too expensive. The one thing I would have to change about them is the cost and I am sure that I will not be alone with that. I simply cannot justify the price, which is a real shame as these are fantastic nappies. Perhaps the manufacturers could find a way of cutting the cost whilst maintaining their green credentials. Until they are able to do this I am afraid it will put off many parents who would like to reach for a greener alternative.
