Love these nappies!
I absolutely loved using these nappies. After a lot of research I purchased 14 of them with four covers (the BamBam part time pack plus a Bam Bam trial pack) well before our baby was born. We started using them immediately (from 2 days old) and never had a leak. The snappi means that you get a perfect fit every time. The covers were a little big to start with so we used a Baby Bare newborn cover initially. Our baby was born at 4kg so he was big to begin with. The only down side was that he grew out of them by the time he was eight weeks old. My...husband and I were actually sad to have to move on to a OSFM nappy we loved them that much. They washed incredibly well, and sometimes we would put them in the dryer for a couple of minutes to make them fluffy and soft. We were washing everyday so that we could use them full time (we had an additional three other newborn nappies from other brands) but it was well worth it. We used reusable micro liners as we found these much better than the flushable bamboo ones. It also meant we were 100% resuseable (we also use reuseable cloth wipes). We now use a mixture of OSFM, mostly Candies. The customer service was great. Vicki was helpful and prompt in her responses when I had questions. Highly, highly recommend these nappies!

Good fit for newborn
Our son is 11 days old and has been in Bambams since day 2 (3.874 kgs). We trifold the insert for extra absorbency and find that this is giving us between 2-3 hours at the moment. I find the fit of the nappies good, and particularly liked that we could fold them down so that they did not cover his umbilical stump in those first few days. As the Bambams have no absorbancy it is important to note that they must be used with a cover to prevent leaks. We used the Bubblebubs size newborn covers which seems to be working well for now.
Bambams have been a nice gateway to cloth for us as first time parents and are far less bulky than terry towelling options for newborns.

Awful awful nappies
These nappies are a joke. We are onto our second baby with these, and boy have they disappointed us.
Just like our first, our son leaks out everywhere with these and not just the odd nappy here or there but, every. Single. One.
We have also noticed that the elastic around the sides have stretched out on all of the nappies. We use a low speed spin cycle during washing and low heat 30 minute dryer cycle on occasion. These nappies should last longer.
Truly disappointing considering the amount we paid.
Don't waste your money.

Incomplete order and appalling customer service
We ordered a trial pack of bambams online a couple of months before our baby was due. 2 weeks later I had an email asking if I'd received a previous email (I hadn't) telling me to choose another print for the cover as the one I wanted was out of stock. I thought that was quite a long time to figure out that they didn't have what I wanted in stock, but as my baby was not born yet, I didn't mind so much.
After my baby was born, we ordered a set of 12 bambams, along with covers and a couple of larger sizes to trial for when he got bigger. When t...
Perfect newborn nappy
We have used Bambams since my son was 1 week old (3.7kg). He is now 7weeks old and I cannot fault them.
The fit has been great and has adapted to suit as he grew and changed shape - short and chubby to long and thin.
After a quick tutorial hubby was on board has had no problem using them since.
So easy for a first time mum
These nappies have been great! I am a first time mum to a 4 week old and have been using these since he was born. Great fit, easy to apply and can be easily boosted if required. I found the absorbency really increases a lot with a few washes. I have some pre-folds as well which are also great.
Vicki's customer service is amazing, she answered all my questions quickly and with so much information. The website and the blog are also full of info and little videos which have been very helpful.
The perfect newborn nappy
Loved using these with my newborn. So easy to put on, wash and dry quickly so that I could use them again. It is so easy with these to get a good fit that doesn't leak.
All the other nappies I tried leaked no matter what I did. Pairing a bambam with a double gusset cover no more leaks every again.
Brilliant cute product and fab service
I purchased some of the new aussie animals bubblebubs candies recently. They were ready for pick up next day and were fabulous to use. They are my favourite out of the different brands i have. Love the clip in inserts - easy to clean. The instructions on the website were great too. Want to buy some more!
Started these first day home with the bubs and haven’t looked back!
We bought these months in advance of our babies arrival based on the overwhelming positive reviews on this site and other review sites. The initial outlay wasn’t bad as we ordered direct from their online store, we got the ‘Newborn part-time pack Bam Bams’ for $299. It included covers, snappis and the bam bams.
Our baby was an average 3.5kgs and started cloth nappies the day we brought him home. The elastic fit on the legs and waist are so good, catching any runny poos and only needing x1 extra layer of booster for wees. The covers are super ...
Perfect NB Option
I bought a stash of these for use with my second after having regrets not getting them for my first. They are incredibly soft and feel gorgeous for little squishy newborn bums. Getting a perfect fit was quite easy, and boosting on the outside between nappy and PUL or woollen cover extended the period of use we were able to get as we had a chunky heavy wetting boy who sadly by 10 weeks barely fit the Bam bams anymore. But we soon upgraded to BIGs and love them too!
Must have newborn nappies
These nappies are so soft and luxurious; it really does put your mind at ease having such new skin in them. I found ours were really absorbent and were used daily until 8 weeks (my babies are big, so she was out wetting them even when boosted). I found them super easy to use in the newborn haze, and washed them in a normal load (with our clothes) no problems.

Great For Newborn
We started using BamBams as soon as my little one was home from hospital. We found that they were a great fit, especially as you can do them up firmly. My partner had no trouble getting used to them as well as visiting relatives. We did find our little one would let us know when she was wet, as this type of nappy gets wet all the way around. Paw paw cream was the best option for these cloth nappies to get rid of nappy rash (caused from disposables when in hospital). I'm sorry when she outgrew them at about 3 months, as they have been such a good nappy. Definitely recommend BamBams for your newborn.

Great fit flexibility for newborns
BamBams are a great fit from from newborns to about 2-3 months. They still fit my son and he's 3 months though I do need to boost them now. Because they do up with a snappy they're very flexible to fit and easier than a prefold to start with. The leg elastics also create a great seal. Paired with a Bubblebubs cover i found these had a great size range and great flexibility when you're just starting.
I can't wait to wrap our bub's little toosh in our super soft Bambams!
As a first time mum, making the right decision on cloth nappies has been a tricky one. After weeks of research, we decided the Bubblebubs Bambams would be the perfect choice for our pending arrival.
Vicki has been amazing, and kept us in the loop with expected delivery times, as the PUL covers we ordered we're slightly delayed.
Having since received our fluffy mail, I can say 100% that I cannot wait to wrap our baby's little butt in the super soft bambam. They are so incredibly soft and silky and just simply adorable. They appear to offer a little more convenience than a prefold or flat, and will (hopefully) be the perfect fit for our new baby! I can't wait to purchase some more!
Love this nappy
As a first time user of cloth nappies I was a bit worried but fell in love with my bambams, I even got my partner using them after he swore black and blue he wouldn't touch cloth !! They are soft and so easy to use, I love the range of covers for them and they all dry quite quickly. I have never had nappy rash with these nappies and have no issues using them overnight. I add a booster now as my bun is getting bigger and I'm not quite wanting to give them up yet.
Fantastic newborn nappy
Fantastic fit from day one (once I mastered the art of the snappi), fit for a lot longer than other newborn nappies I purchased.
Worked very well and while I purchased them second hand and used them solidly for at least 8-9 months, heaps of life left in them and I just wish I had known about them for Bub number 1 (used cushie tushies Osfm with him and they were just a bit big for the first 3 months)
My favourite newborn nappy
I bought a few different kinds of newborn nappy before my baby was born and BamBams are the only ones I kept using. Much easier than prefolds but still gives a great custom fit. The fabric is so soft and the elastic is strong enough to keep in leaks but doesn't leave red marks against delicate skin. They do need a cover, which makes them a little bulkier but I never used one unless going out or wearing clothes over the top. They look so cute on the bum!
Bubblebubs bamboo delights
These are my go-to nappy for going out, car journeys etc - times when I really don't want a leak! They are a bit bulky but bub is only 4.5kg at the moment and think he will fill them out. Really absorbent though (that was my only issue with the bambams - had to change him nearly every hour as he was really wet!) and lovely next to his skin. Teamed with PUL cover I haven't had any leaks and he leaks almost every disposable and the occasional candie (probably operator error?!) Vicki delivers amazing customer service (see candie review) - can't fault her and she has made entrance to cloth nappy using very pleasant! Only concern is how long they take to dry but that is the price you pay for the extra absorbency.
Perfect for newborn to 8kg
My favorite nappy! I got rid of the other 10 styles we tried. Now i only use nappies made by bubblebubs. Very high quality and very reasonably priced. Very very very soft. Extremely easy to use, very very trim, especially when teamed with a candies cover. Almost as trim as a disposable but feels even softer to me!
Very trim (almost like disposable)
Dries relatively quickly
Can use up until 8kg so great value for money plus inserts can be used after this time
Best of all, you can buy and if you don't like it even after trying you get your money back!
Doesn't leave any red marks on baby legs or back/tummy etc ...
Best Fitted Nappy I have Used
Gosh, I wish these were around 9 years ago when I was using cloth with my older children. Bambams have genuinely got #3 bub into cloth nappies as much as possible from the day we got home from hospital.
I avoided cloth in the early days with my first two, as I was either having to fold flats or deal with All in Ones that didn't quite fit yet.
Bambams save the folding, and fit like a dream! Great custom fit, and trim too, doesn't interfere with teeny newborn clothing fitting still!
Whenever I need to use a disposable, I can't wait to get i...
