Our Review of the Little Toggs Happy Nappy and Rashy Top:
Size: 12-24 months (Happy Nappy) and 1-2 Years (Rashy)
Design: Vintage Moby (Happy Nappy) and Navy (Rashy)
The Happy Nappy is designed to be used in place of a disposable swim nappy, and has maximum protection again faecal leaks. It is anti bacterial and mould resistant, meaning that it is long lasting and reusable (particularly for those who do not want to spend lots of money on disposable nappies). The Happy Nappy uses contoured neoprene material to help the nappy stay in place while baby crawls and wriggles around.
The Happy Nappy comes with a scooped back panel to fit over your baby’s spine and prevent gaping (e.g. plumber’s crack!!), minimising any possible leakages. There are also deep ribs at the legs and waist to help the nappy maintain its position and form a snug seal.
We have had one very unpleasant experience with a reusable swim nappy (which we had to throw away), so we are a bit anxious about using a swim nappy by itself. I must admit that when we were trying the swim nappy, it was after we did a costume change for another swimsuit in the review, so I forgot to take off the disposable nappy he was wearing (hence the awkward look of the happy nappy in the photos). I will endeavour to review the swim nappy by itself sometime in the coming weeks when we visit the beach again, and I will write a review on how well it holds everything in!
In the meantime, despite holding a nappy inside, the Happy Nappy sat quite snuggly to Starfish’s legs and back. He was able to stand, squat and crawl around the beach, giving him great mobility during this active stage of his development. It paired really well with the rashy to give him excellent sun protection as well.
If you’re the type to go for a reusable swim nappy instead of disposables, while I haven’t fully tried this (YET), I would definitely be choosing this as my first option to have a try with. Firstly, it is a great price ($29.95) for great quality. The Happy Nappy is recommended by swim teachers, swim schools and health care professionals, giving it a solid reputation. This is definitely the best value for money over the long term if want swimwear that gives great sun protection and will catch those leakages!
Stand out Features:
- UPF50+ Protection
- Neoprene (1mm thick) to keep the swim nappy in place – fits snugly and allows for lots of movement
- Extremely affordable and cost effective (as a reusable nappy!)
- Still awaiting a full ‘trial’ of the happy nappy without a disposable underneath.
