Leaks and slow to dry
I purchased 3 all-in-ones in Oct-2019. Initially my (then) 3 month old wet through them very fast. We would need to change his outfit and nappy within 45min. As he begun eating solids this problem lessened, but we still use these nappies as the last resort when all other brands are in the wash. This is for a number of reasons: 1) we still need to change it after an hour or so to avoid major leakage; 2) they seem to leak from the sides where there is only felt and no absorbent material: 3) the bamboo inserts are dense and stay very moist nex...t to his skin unlike other bamboo inserts we use; and 4) they take forever to dry after the wash. These nappies can sit on the line for two loads of other MCNs just to get to the point of being dry. We have used other Baby Beehinds products and been really happy with them, so I'm surprised this poor design hasn't got more negative feedback. But maybe they are just the wrong match for my little guy's bottom!
Purchased in October 2019 at Baby Beehinds for $23.20.
If you live somewhere where there is plenty of water these might be OK, but I simply did not feel that it was appropriate to use them and have reverted to eco-friendly disposables. In addition I just didn't find them to be working very well at all.
- They look cute
- They make you feel as though you are being environmentally friendly
- I found these nappies to be useless in terms of not leaking. My son does wee a lot, and the nappies couldn't contain it overnight at all despite boosters which made him look utterly ridiculous his bottom was s...
Before buying this nappy I did a lot of research and careful consideration on what I wanted from a cloth nappy. Baby beehinds have a great reputation and 95% of the users (Australian & international) have had very positive experiences and particular praise was the absorbency & natural bamboo material. Unfortunately, I belong to the 5% of users who did share the experiences with the majority. I hated the fact that my bub's bottom was so padded up it was like a ball, also that the moisture was against his skin - though I'll try a fleece liner ...as I've read this really helps to wick moisture. Now I'm into BumGenius and LOVE them, they wick moisture, is as easier to use, quick dry, much trimmer than babybeehinds and changes are quicker due to no separate cover/nappy system Vibrant choice of colours, made from bamboo which is environmentally friendly and natural fiber on my bub, fantastic customer service - a dream to deal with! The bamboo doesn't wick moisture and is very bulky. Need to team this nappy up with a cover which adds to the bulk
For ease and comfort I would stick to a pocket nappy, but if you want a bamboo nappy that is super breathable and absorbent this is a good option for overnight, but not really for going out unless you have a huge bag.
They are breathable, which means less nappy rash.
Because they use inserts, rather than a pocket, if the baby does a big poo that gets outside the liner, it gets caught on the sides and in between the layers. Also when you hold it over the toilet to spray it off (we had a little squirt) the layers often fall into the toilet, becau...

Questions & Answers
Hi! I bought some second hand bamboo fitted nappies through the Facebook group but they feel different to the one I already have. Was there a change in the production process through the years? Both say bamboo fitted OSFM with same % composition. The most recent ones feel more 'fleecy' inside and out, touch softer and has pilling whereas my other one feels more absorbent, you can see the weave, is a touch stiffer and has no piling. Could the fleecy one be an older style? Thanks
