no leaks at all and very soft waist bands
This is very absorbent and doesn't leak after a few hours. My baby loves drinking juices and we felt the need to change from time to time and this product didn't cause me any problems.

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.
Excellent All Round Nappy
We have used this nappy from about 3 months as an overnight nappy and during the day if I know that I'll need more than three hours. We've never had a leak with these nappies and they are better than disposables for overnight. We had an additional booster (a medium babybeehind multi fit booster) between the nappy and the cover. We use the BabyBeehind covers. As expected, they are bulkier than other non-fitted nappies, but not so bulky that they are uncomfortable. They are a great fit around the legs (some other nappies give our baby red marks b...ut not these ones). I like that the insert position is adaptable. We have a boy that is a heavy wetter so we put more absorbency where he needs it most. I can't fault these nappies. They are easy to wash, we've never had a stain, and as long as you have sun, dry quickly. I bought five new (when BabyBeehinds had a sale) and then found 12 used on gumtree which was fantastic because they were in great condition and had already been prepped.

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.
Fantastic nappy, used for 2 over 5 years
Bought the bakers dozen pack for our first son in 2012 and haven't looked back! They have no signs of wear and no long term staining.
Due to being bamboo they absorb a lot of liquid but also take a while to dry, this is a non issue with a bunch of nappies and planned washes hung in the sun. When there is a lot of moisture in the air, it can take all day to dry.
Can't recommend these enough for parents expecting a new baby.
Reliable and affordable
i am on baby number 3 and have been using modern cloth nappies the entire time, using many different brands. The Baby Beehind fitteds are the most reliable, biggest capacity and affordable of all the brands i have used over the years. I know many other cloth nappy parents who are equally impressed with this brand. You can't go wrong with 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.
I love these for hanging out at home; so easy to use, very absorbent and made of completely natural fibres. Need to use with a PUL or wool cover so I prefer not to use them when out-and-about (I like to use the covers more than once, so hard to air them out in between if being stuffed into a nappy bag). Never had a leak, they are just great. Bought some second-hand too and still excellent quality considering they'd been used for 2+ years. Only down side would be drying time, but to get high-absorbency in a great natural material like bamboo yo...u can't be too fussy. Also, I place a cheap home-made liner of microfleece between nappy and baby to give that 'stay-dry layer' - the bamboo can feel a bit damp next to skin when full. Very absorbent, all natural material, one-size but fits really well, contains explosions! Requires cover, slow drying time
I Love Baby Beehinds!!
As an environmentally aware consumer I wanted to use cloth nappies, after much research I tried a sample pack of Baby Beehinds nappies. I decided on the Bamboo Nappies with a PUL cover... best purchase ever!! They are so easy to use and wash and with the flush-able liner I find that they stay beautifully clean. My little girl has been using them since birth (3 kilos). I have also recently purchased the Magic All-In-Ones with the velcro strap, love them!! At night I use a Magic All-In-One over the Bamboo nappy for extra absorbency, as my little ...one is a heavy wetter. I don't know why more people don't use re-usable nappies. I have saved so much money and my baby is growing with them, she is now 8 months old and 8 kilos and there is still plenty of room to grow. The service is excellent and they have a clearance section which is why I have added All-In-Ones...why not!! If your on a budget, just get the Bamboo nappies, its all you will need (with PUL covers). They are awesome and fit all sizes! Easy to use, easy to wash, baby loves them, value for money, excellent service. I thought they may restrict her movement... they don't. She was crawling at 6 months! I originally wrote this in 2012 so now in 2019 I wanted to add that I have since had two other children and I still use the bamboo nappies with PUL cover. I used the original ones for the first two children and then decided to buy more when my third child was born. I have not looked back! Best purchase ever.
If I'd known how great these were...
I love these nappies and really wish I'd bought only these. Superb quality and so absorbent, we've never had a leak with these nappies, and i have a big baby who is also a heavy wetter. I ended up with quite a few types and brands of nappies because I couldn't commit, but will only be using these for subsequent children. I did think originally that it might be extra hassle to put a cover on these nappies as required but it's really not an issue! The only downside is the time they take to dry. I would recommend having quite a few of these if y...ou live in a cold climate as we do! Great quality, good fit, absorbent and reliable. Several inserts give options for absorbency vs bulk. They do seem to pop up on sale too. Drying time. Bamboo can take days to dry in winter but so absorbent.
Excellent nappy, especially for naps!
I didn't start using cloth until my baby was 8 months, I just wish I started earlier! I have only experienced these in the summer months so far, but they are soooo absorbent! Especially great for naps with a Pul cover and during the day when its hot without so my little one has plenty of air movement.
Great product, definitely glad I switched!
Natural, sustainable and organic fibres. Absorbency
A little bulky under leggings.
Got to love them
Baby Beehinds bamboo fitted stay nice and soft even after washing multiple times, fit baby beautifully. Last right up to toilet trained. Easy to use. Unlike velcro ones which loose their grip over time the snaps work wonderfully. The Night cover (wool) is more bulky than the day cover but at least babies clothes and bed will be dry.
reliable, stay soft and done up
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
I love these nappies!
I started on disposables but switched when my little guy was on anti-biotics and the disposables couldn't keep in the poosplosions any more. As soon as I changed I stopped having to change his whole outfit 3 or 4 times a day as the cloth could hold them in.
Even my hubby can use them and he knows how to wash them too
I use a flushable liner now he is bigger as I can just flush any mess straight down the loo which makes cleaning up faster, no need to handle poo & is so much easier when you are out and about.
They occasionally feel rough but if you pop them in the dryer for 20 minutes they are back to their original softness.
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
