Review of the Bambo Nature Nappies:
Note: 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 Fi’s Profile HERE).We trialled the Maxi-4 (7-18kg) nappies for this review.
How does it fit?
The Bambo Nature nappies seemed to fit Starfish quite well as they covered a large weight range (7-18kg) and Starfish sits in the lower-middle section of that range. As a lighter nappy, it was easier to fold over and put on than some of the other nappies. It fit well around Starfish’s chubby legs too.
How long does it last?
As Starfish is not generally a heavy soiler (until recently), the Bambo Nature Maxi-4 nappies would generally last through the night and between sleep-wake-play cycles during the day. I would generally have to change him after each of his naps during the day with these nappies, and I had one or two leakages if he wasn’t changed after a nap.
Is it good during the daytime and overnight?
These nappies were better as a night-time nappy than daytime, as Starfish is a heavier soiler in the mornings (poo) or during the day with lots of water and milk.
What is the value like? Is it worth the cost?
The Bambo Nature Nappies are actually the most expensive cost per nappy, however this is likely due to their environmentally-friendly element. Unfortunately due to the leakages we experienced, we found there were other nappies that were more affordable at a cheaper price.
Is it easy to put on and take off?
Yes the tabs were very easy to use, and due to the thinner feel of the nappy, it was easier to maneuver around Starfish to put on and take off.
Are they easy to dispose of?
Due to being a thinner nappy, it was sometimes hard to contain the mess with one hand while holding a wriggly baby with the other. However most of the time it was manageable.
Summary of the Bambo Nature Nappies:
I love that the Bambo Nature Nappies are environmentally-friendly – a good disposable option for mums who are wanting a good eco option. Due to the way it absorbed moisture away from Starfish’s skin, it did not irritate his skin or leave any red marks (as he has had in the past with other nappies). Unfortunately the price point is a big factor for me, as babies are already expensive enough as is. However if you don’t mind the cost and are wanting the eco option, this is the nappy for you.
