Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This nappy fitted my son well and there were no leakages (it even contained an explosion of breast fed baby poo!) It comes with a two year guarantee. The nappy is fully adjustable and is designed to be used from birth until your child is potty trained. It comes with a microfibre and bamboo insert and an additional bamboo booster. The insert fits into a pocket at the back of the nappy underneth the soft lining that touches your baby's bottom. The nappy is secured with strong Velcro.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The nappy was easy to wash and dried quickly on the line due to the fact that the inserts are removable and unfold into a long strip. The Velcro makes it easy to adjust the width of the nappy and the four levels of height adjustment poppers mean that you can get a good fit for your baby. The nappy comes in lots of different funky patterns.

Would you choose this product to win?

I haven't come across a reusable nappy with a double gusset before. I also really like that it has four height adjustments rather than the usual two or three. The price makes it great value for money and the ethos of the company will appeal to the green parents out there. The two year guarantee provides reassurance that this can be used for several years and maintain its function.

What changes would you make to this product?

At the moment I can't think of anything that I would change about this nappy or any improvements that could be made. I look forward to continuing to use the nappy with my son and I may purchase a few more of these nappies to add to our collection if it continues to perform and wash well over the next few months.

Tested by mum Rebecca Gough for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this product to other mums. The nappy comes in various designs and I like the fact that the nappy comes with the inserts already (a daytime and extra booster). It is very easy to use and once you have got to used to putting the inserts in, the nappy is easy to make up. Apart from the first use, when there was slight leakage at the legs, I haven't had any problems with leaking of the nappy and have been impressed with absorbance.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The nappy is as easy to use a disposable. Once you are used to putting the inserts in then it is quick to make up and once you have got a routine then you could make the nappies up ready for the day after. This product would be ideal if your child is in nursery yet you still wanted to use reusable nappies as the nursery would be able to use them the same as disposable nappies.

Would you choose this product to win?

The nappy is very eco friendly compared to disposable nappies. It is easy to use compared to other reusable nappies such as all in twos as there is only one nappy to put on. The website offers lots of advice and the nappy comes with a full advice booklet regarding caring for the nappy which means the life of the nappy lasts as long as possible. The nappy also comes with a 2 year Velcro guarantee which is good.

What changes would you make to this product?

When the nappy is used at its smallest settings, the white inner rolls outwards. This can cause problems with leakage. It would be better if the product rolled inwards or didn't roll at all! The absorbancy of the nappy does not come into full effect until approx 3-5 washes which again can cause problems with leakage. It does state this in the booklet that comes with the nappy but it would be nice if the absorbancy was good straight away.
