  • 2019 Silver Best Reusable Nappy

At a glance:

This small Italian company make hand-made nappies which are very absorbent and excellent quality, not to mention bright and colourful.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Louise: I’d recommend this brand because I like their ethos of reducing wastage. The attention to detail that’s gone into the manufacturing of the nappies is second to none and they are good value for money. You would need to buy a fair few of the nappies to get you started which would be a financial outlay. However, as the nappies grow with your baby and they wash well, I envisage them standing the test of time.

Hayley: I would recommend this product because they make life so much easier. They are so comfortable and soft for babies and the designs on them are lovely and bright. They are much easier to use. They don't take up any space in the bin like disposable ones, just rinse them off and straight in the wash.

Katie: I would recommend them because they are very good quality, easy to use, they have attractive neutral but strong patterns and my baby has been very comfortable in them. I have already recommended them to quite a few friends, but they have struggled to buy the nappy as the website is in Italian.

How did this product make your life easier?

Jessica: I don’t have a lot of room in the outside bin so using a reusable nappy means more space and less frequent bin bag changes. The breathable material stops my baby from getting a sore bum which unfortunately they are quite prone to. It takes a lot less time to prepare the baby bag before going out as we don’t need to pack as much. By using a reusable nappy we will save a lot of money with the benefit of knowing that you are helping out the environment! It does, however, add to the never-ending laundry pile.

Charlotte: These definitely converted me to cloth nappies. Our household waste has reduced significantly and they are so much better for the environment. Our son is quite chubby, so we often had leaks with disposable nappies. We’ve had no leaks at all since using these nappies which has been fantastic! Although the cost of using cloth nappies is quite high initially, they will definitely save you money in the long term.

Claire: I was surprised to find how well the nappy fitted my child and how adaptable it was when using for different children. There was no leakage and they appeared to be comfortable after wearing it for almost five hours. The carry pouch also provided a practical way to transport the used nappy back home.

Would you choose this product to win?

Zoe: Although it is good I don’t think I would choose it above all others. The downsides are the pocket style rather than an all-in-one. It is slightly awkward to stuff the liners back into the pocket after use. Although it has the advantage of being very absorbent it is very bulky under clothing. I prefer another brand as they are an all-in-one style. I do think these perform better than some brands that are leaky and unabsorbent. 

Louise: The things that stand out are the fact the nappies are so well made, they have different designs (they aren’t all pastel colours like a lot of baby clothes/accessories) and they grow with your baby so you get value for money. They keep the contents in and we had no accidents or leakage. This one is definitely a winner for me.

Hayley: I would choose this product above all others on the market. It is amazing and easy to use once you get the hang of it, especially if you are first timers using them. They are brightly coloured and have lovely designs on them which babies like! They are very comfortable and definitely worth the money.

What changes would you make to this product?

Katie: I would change nothing about the product itself. I have tried to buy more of this nappy but have been unable to. This has been very disappointing for myself and for my friends who I have shown the nappy to. It’s a great nappy just frustrating not to be able to get more as I haven’t found another as good as it.

Jessica: I think these nappies are brilliant. They are quite bulky because of the absorbency they offer. It is fairly difficult to put clothes on over the top in the colder British weather. A slimmer version would be good for people who don’t mind the extra laundry and nappy changing. The colour is a bit bold and shows through certain clothes like rompers so personally, I would like a more plain design.

Charlotte: It would be nice to have a wider variety of colours or patterns to choose from. Some reusable nappy companies do a “starter pack” (containing a few different nappies, liners, a nappy bin etc) for families who are new to cloth nappies. It might be useful for NaturalMama to do something similar. Apart from this, I couldn’t think of any changes to make.
