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.
Good all round nappy
Very absorbant and rarely leaks.
Didn’t fit well when my son was very small but from about 3months onwards it has fit well.
Easy to snap in the inserts.
This nappy needs a nappy cover.
Affordable in price.
They take a very long time to dry. All day in the sun or if it’s a damp day they don’t dry that day.
They are bulky too so my son always needs bigger clothes on over the top of these.
Used for 2 kids
I've used these for both my kids with minimal issues. Hubby and I like them - they are good at keeping poos in and usually off the covers. We put extra inserts in if we are going out for a while, which seems to make them last longer than most nappies incl. disposables. On the second kid, one is starting to tear but it has had a hard life and the rest are fine.
Just some tips:
- Do wash a few times before use (same for second hand or if they haven't been worn for a year)
- Get good covers (I'm not too fond of bbh covers, the more expensive ...
No nappy rash, can go from tiny babies, but my daughter grew out of them before she was toilet train
I had a big daughter, and she has grown out of these nappies before she was toilet trained (and is a late bloomer for toilet training to boot) but from 0 to 2 years, she was in these. They are very very absorbent, and we had no leakage. However, nappy liners (the cheap Woolworths home brand) are needed for solid wastes to minimise the yuk. The money we saved from these - they paid for themselves by 3 months age of my daughter, compared to disposables, even if you include the dryer costs. Drying them on the line makes them a bit brittle, but ca...n be overcome with 15 minutes in the dryer before putting out on the line. We likes the bamboo multisized ones with the separate cover the most, they aren't hard to put on - and trust me you will get lots of practice! Soft, no nappy rash, inexpensive If you have a big 2 year old, prepared to move to disposables.
Great Nappies - absorbent and no nappy rash!
We bought a stash of these before my son was born, as I loved the idea of natural bamboo (antibacterial and absorbent) material and a nappy that would last until he was older. Overall our experience with these nappies has been fantastic! They have never leaked, and our baby has never had a nappy rash in them! They come with two snap-in inserts (one small and one long) and initially I was using them with just the long one folded in half as our baby is a heavy wetter. I found them to be too bulky on our newborn (who weighed just over 3kgs) and re...stricted his leg movement especially as they require a cover (one friend commented that he looked like a roast chicken!). However I found that all one-size nappies were bulky on our newborn. Now our son weighs just over 5kgs and I have tried them again, just using the smaller insert, and they fit better (even with the PUL cover) - so much so that I ordered a few more! The nappies take a few washes to become fully absorbent, but this is the case with all bamboo nappies and (as stated in another review) the inserts seem to become fully soaked before the rest of the nappy does. Having just come through a wet winter, I have always tumble dried these, then hung them on a clothes horse as they never come out of the dryer with the elastic fully dry. The nappies are still in great condition after constantly being in the dryer, although they become a bit stiff after washing (scrunching makes them soft again). I also found these to be inexpensive considering how long they should last and baby beehinds are a pleasure to deal with. Overall, these are a great nappy that I'm sure will last a long time! Reliable, super absorbent, don't leak, great bamboo material, inexpensive bulky on a newborn baby
Absorbent but bulky and slow drying
I thought these would be wonderful given the reviews but I'm not that happy. They are SO bulky! I didn't put them on my daughter until she was 6.8kg. The bamboo is lovely and absorb a lot. Definitely need a cover which adds to bulk.
the bamboo is beautiful and tge soak up a lot!
bamboo takes a long time to dry so buy more to rotate. they are very bulky plus they need a cover.
Lovley and absorbant
We have two of these nappies and are full time cloth nappy users. My daughter was 4kg at birth and I found that although we could make these fit they didn't hold anything in. From about 6-8kg they were fantastic, and now she is 10kg we are only just squeezing her into them.
The major plus is that they are super absorbant, we generally use them at night. I also love that they require a cover as we have found that with all in one nappies the waterproofing makes for rashes and also makes her smelly (I discovered why people use fragranced baby ...wipes instead of a bit of water on a cloth). I find with a wool cover these nappies are great. Design wise, apart from the small size, I am pretty happy with these nappies although when she was younger we did giver her sore inner thighs wearing her in the baby carrier in these (and other MCN's) with the elasticised legs digging into her and rubbing. I also wonder if the plastic press studs are comfortable to lie upon and use both boosters to cushion them. Fantastic, but should be labelled as Medium rather than One Size Fits All Too small sizing
These are one of my favourite brands of nappies, I have tried quite a lot and these lasted well until my kids outgrew them at about 1 year. The quality from baby beehinds is excellent, and they currently come in a few extra limited edition colours. These will definitely save you some money if you are committed to using them.
Come in a variety of fabrics, fit baby through months/years because they sized from newborn to 15 kgs. Are great value for money and I have found the baby beehinds customer service is excellent
They probably won't actually fit your baby to 15kgs, I found my kids outgrew them around 11kgs.
I'm really impressed with these nappies. My daughter has been wearing them since she was a week old, and we've never had any problems. Having to use a cover is occasionally a hassle, and their trickier to use for grandparents who aren't used to them, but it's totally worth it for a nappy that's kind to baby and very economical.
Have never had a leak using these nappies. Fit well, are very soft and fit baby for long time. Easy to wash.
A bit bulky and fiddly to begin with, and extra cover can be a slight hassle - but worth it.
I don't mind having a few of these in my stash, but I wouldn't buy them again. They're far too bulky, and it's hard to get a good fit on my daughter.
hardwearing. bamboo. the brand. can get these pretty cheaply on special or second hand. one size fits all. good quality
fabric, bulk and fit.
For the price, they are a good, reliable, easy to use nappy. BabyBeeHinds are a great company and I would recommend all of their products.
I wasn't a fan of fitted nappies and cover in the end so there are better options (for us) out there.
Easy to use. Good fit. Very absorbent.
Overall good fitted nappy
They become 'crunchy' over time and don't feel so nice.
The elastic does go in them but you get a fair bit of life out of them.
As they are a snap nappy, sometimes it is hard to get a good fit and they weren't good for my skinny legged baby until she got a lot bigger
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...
Husband hated it , refused to use it, found it was bulky, between the legs, took 2 days to dry !!!
The colour range was good, it seems to small to fit a toddler so I found it a waste of money, good thing was I could sell it off easily.
not a lot to be honest
bad fit on my newborn was so bulky he was bow legged, complicated to learn to use
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
Really like them, esp. for naps/long sleeping stretches and paired with a wool cover. No leaks. I guess they are "bulky" but that is of no concern to me or my babies so no complaints there. They line dry quite quickly for me. Really happy with them overall.
have lasted several years and children--washed and worn well. Very absorbent and the snap in boosters mean they wash up and dry quite well. they snap down to a very small size.
I haven't found them AS great once baby gets bigger/on last snap setting--they don't seem to be as long fitting as some other one size fits most nappies.
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
