A wonderful low profile absorbent Nappy
I used Designer Bums as part of a large stash of multiple brand nappies and always reached for my designer bums first. The inserts are super thirsty and saw us through from 6 months to toilet training at 3.5yo. The nappies are super functional and you can add inserts and change the size of the nappy as needed.

Most of our nappies are Designer Bums (mixed with Bare and Boho). Both brands are excellent and wouldn't hesitate to recommend either... I do slightly prefer the Designer Bum nappies as the inserts dry quicker (but somehow just as absorbent) and have worn better in long run. I bought a combination of new and second hand.
I initially found in researching nappies that there was a lot of choices and different types of nappies and different opinions on how to wash and the 'right' way etc. It all seemed a bit hard to be honest, but Designer Bums ...were the first ones I used and I did try a few others but I just found these worked best for us. Overall though I do think the whole process of reusable nappies was easier than it initially seemed and I can't recommend reusable nappies and Designer Bums enough.
Designer Bums is the best cloth nappy!
After trialling a few brands on my first bub, I fell in love with Designer Bums nappies due to the easy of use, slim fit and of course all the beautiful prints. You can see and tell from the fabrics they are very good quality and made really well. They have been around for a long time so are a trusted brand and they also have really good resale value which makes them even more appealing.

There are so many beautiful prints to chose from! We have found these nappies very absorbent and easy to use, and now use Designer Bums exclusively. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to try cloth nappies.

We've tried a fair few MCN brands and designer bums wins the absorbency and trim fit combo!
Cute designs, great stay dry layer on the insert which makes laying them easy (if you can't be bothered stuffing like me).
The elastics are tight to catch poos, so I do get some red marks, but they fade quickly, so no worries there!
Only drawbacks are that the inserts take a while to dry (cost of thirsty inserts) and the price (but it's a premium product, so can be expected!)

Does not follow eco ethos!
Designer bums is requesting those who have a defective item to cut it in half and proof before they will consider replacing. They want proof of the destroyed product, this is absolutely absurd! This is against their ethos of being eco friendly and sustainable. Replace or refund without making more waste.
The prints are beautiful and the fabric/make is sturdy.
They're too small, 6mo leaking every single use, not enough room to boost sufficiently.
Spend your money on cheaper and better brands.

Nice prints not for everyone
Nice prints unfortunately not for heavy wetters or chunky monkeys. Left red deep marks around the thighs. Which isnt normal. Changed brands no more marks. For the same money or less you can get better nappies. Sorry. They aren’t the trimmest nappies on the market either quite chunky and big.

So gorgeous and such great quality! Plus the sheets are AMAZING!
We have a few Designer Bums single sheets and they are seriously one of the best investments we have made for the kid's rooms! Incredible quality cotton and stunning prints.

Lovely modern cloth nappies
Beautiful, Australian hand designed nappies. Ethically made in China. Lovely trim fit. The inserts are thirsty. They are a bit of a small fit though and better suited for smaller/younger babies

Love love love these nappies!
I’ve been using Designerbums for two years now - the stunning prints drew me in, but the quality made me stay! They’re a lovely trim fit, and the inserts are very thirsty. The long anchor can be folded to suit the child’s needs - girls and boys, tummy or back sleepers. They’ve got a pocket for those who like to stuff the inserts, but I prefer to lay them on top. Kidlet 2 has been in them since birth, while they also still fit my 2.5 year old beautifully. #2 at 14 months old still manages to last through the night in a regular, unboosted DB - but they’re easy to boost for heavy wetters. I love that they function brilliantly, and look awesome while doing so! Can’t recommend them highly enough - best poo catchers on the market.

Have loved from 6mths to Toilet Training
We have used these on our Bub from 6mths when we first started using cloth until we toilet trained at 3yrs.
They were the first brand that I liked the prints and found them really use to use so didn’t try anything else.
Purchased in July 2017 for $34.95.
Wonderful nappies, amazing prints
We have been using these nappies for 18 months. They are wonderful. Great fit with options for adjustments as bubs grows.
Many of the designs are exclusive prints which become highly sought after which is great for your resale value.
I can't recommend more highly.

The holy grail of MCN!
After trying 20+ MCN brands, designer bums have never been topped! Incredible quality, amazing customer service. Trim fitting, with the ability to fit newborn right up to TT and BEAUTIFUL
Purchased in January 2018 at Www.designerbums.com.au for $34.95.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
There is nothing I don’t love about these nappies. Absorbent, functional, without the bulk of other nappies we trialed. The prints are to die for. I would recommend these to anyone wanting to try MCNs without hesitation.
