Reviewer Photos & Videos
Would have recommended them highly until recently. There has been a change in quality for the worse. Was going to wait for their customer service response, however I feel very concerned that when I tried to submit a less-than-5 star review on their website it was never published. The lack of review transparency is concerning, as if I’d known ahead of time things had changed I would not have made the purchase.
Terrible quality - disintegrated on my baby
These nappies are terrible quality. The worst quality I’ve tried, which is disappointing and ironic given they’re marketed as premium and are also the most expensive nappies I’ve tried (44c each when purchased in pack of 50 at Woolworths). My baby is 6 months old and average size. The elastic and filling literally disintegrated and leaked out all over him when he wore them overnight (see pics for example, this has happened three times). And when he wore them during the day, the sides and fastening tabs began to tear after just an hour or so of ...light wear with little movement and no soiling. The quality is so poor, when I was changing my baby in front of a friend, she looked at the nappy laughing and said ‘So by biodegradable, they mean it biodegrades while your baby’s wearing it!’ Had to laugh at that. But in seriousness it’s disappointing because these nappies promise to be environmentally friendly, good for sensitive skin (my baby has eczema) and work practically - as you’d expect for the premium price tag - but were a total failure! I would never buy them again and it’s a terrible waste because I’ll have to throw them out (which completely defeats the environmentally friendly aim) as they’re too ineffective and I wouldn’t dare inflict them on anyone else, even for free!
These Nappies are terrible.
-Starting from its tape which doesn't hold a thing.
Even my 4 months old baby removes his nappy!
I have experienceD so many leakage problems.
also the elastics on the sides come off.
I also believe my baby got an allergy from these nappies.
Honestly the nappy falls apart and instead of been eco I found myself wasting away more nappies.
These diapers are the worst we have tried. Only with these diapers my baby gets poop on her clothing. Every time... just do yourself a favor and dont buy them. Plus they are super expensive

NOT A FAN!!!!
Other than being eco friendly and feeling ok. Not a fan. I find the absorbency isnt great. Definitely not an overnight nappy. Not much of fan for during the day either. I find it comes loose quite easily and Have to change baby much more than normal. They may be eco friendly but far more nappies are are used than normal. I would definitely not buy them again. Total waste of money.
These leak constantly! My daughter’s back was wet from bum to neck after not having the nappy on very long. They feel flimsy and also ride down the bum when worn. I like what the company stands for but the product itself is very poor quality.
Awful - avoid at all costs!
I bought these nappies due to to their eco claims, however did not expect them to be of such poor quality. Basic features such as the sticky tabs appeared faulty on 80% of the pack (not helpful at the best of times and certainly not ideal when you’re changing a screaming baby in the middle of the night to find you can’t open the sticky tab). The nappies also come across small and prone to leaks. I would certainly avoid.

Horrible. Do not buy.
These nappies are so so bad and I would not recommend to anyone. Do not hold anything and on many occasions mess has seeped through nappy onto clothing. Absolutely useless and definitely will not buy ever again.
Good eco nappy with room for improvement
I got caught at Woollies needing some disposable nappies to complement my MCNs; since Woolies doesn’t stock Tooshies, I thought I’d give Naty Eco a try. It performs well in general, although I’ve had a couple of leaks.
Performance. Absorbs well, although I find I have to change it about as frequently as a standard (not night) cloth nappy to prevent leaks.
Eco friendly. Made of plant based plastics and wood pulp (although not entirely). Note that while many of its components will break down, it’s not 100% biodégradable or compostable; no disposable nappies are at this stage.
Breathable and soft
Too big and leaky
I tried the size 2, 4-9kg for my 3 month old (6kg) and they were a very big fit, the tabs are not super sticky either. They leaked straight up the back each time, once within a minute of putting a clean nappy.
They feel really nice but just didn't work for us.
Sizing way off
Impossible to get a tight fit that doesn’t leak, despite my 5kg baby being well within the prescribed 4-9kg range. These nappies are priced as a premium product, but perform worse than ones half the price.
Soft, excellent fit, works just perfectly overnight, no leaks. The reason why I tried those is that they’re biodegradable and chemical free. I’m currently using another biodegradable and chemical free brand, which I’m very happy with. I wanted to test these as they’re much cheaper and available in my local supermarket.

No contact number. No customer service.
As the company doesn't provide any real customer service, ie. email or phone, their product features and claims become questionable. I tried to reach out to them because i nearly had to throw out an entire package of nappies because the strap was not sticking properly, and the nappy fell off just after minutes.

Great eco nappies, but need to pay a bit more attention to bub when using
I don't usually write reviews (but do check a lot) and found that I need to write something to give these Eco nappies justice as I saw so many bad reviews. They are super Eco-friendly you can tell they are almost just made of paper, that's why they don't tend to hold lots of liquid very well overtime. I mean, they are absorbent enough, but if you bub did a massive wee (or a couple of big ones) and you left it in there for a bit too long, then the outer "paper" layer won't be able to hold up and they get saggy and will leak if you bub do another...one in the meantime. So you will need to pay more attention to bub and change a very wet nappy very quickly. Otherwise there will be accidents. We have had quite a few and learnt the lessons. As for overnight, (my bub drink a lot before bed so he dose massive wee overnight) to avoid accidents, I put double nappies on, and I change him once around midnight, take the usually very wet one away, the second one is usually still completely dry, leave it on, and put another fresh one on top. Since I started doing this we don't have any accidents overnight anymore. I know it sounds not as convinient as other brands but I love the breathable material and gentleness of it on bub. And I think it's better to pay more attention to your baby than leaving him / her with very wet plastic non-leak nappies anyway. Another thing is you will need to put pants or bodysuit on bub (can't just have a singlet and nappy on) if yours is as active as my little one, otherwise bub's movement will rub the "paper" outer layer too much and break it. But, it's no nasties after all so I think it worths some effort. P.s. My bub has very sensitive skin and eczema and these nappies never give him any rash at all. Been using these for a few months now.

Never had any issue
I'm very surprised to read so many bad reviews...I've used Naty Eco Nappies for 4 months now and never had any issue at all. My baby is pretty big - around 97th percentile maybe that makes a difference? Anyway, I really love everything about them. They fit perfectly, never leak, no nasty chemicals and are so much better for the environment than any other nappies. I highly recommend them to anyone who doesn't want to use cloth nappies.

For a toddler boy, size 4 will not hold all the urine
It is a shame that the size 4 and 5 Naty nappy can not hold all the urine over night...
we have been using Naty since baby was born. To be honest, I definitely will give 5 starts for size 0 to size 3. It is quite eco friendly compare to other commercial nappy brands. And it is very comfortable for baby's bottom. we have used other similar brand, but Naty is the only once give enough comfort for baby.
If Naty will improve this part, I will switch back for sure!!
(Maybe it depends on each individual case, my boy always drinks a lot of liquid.. so he urinate a lot over night..)
Not really absorbent
We purchased these to try to be slightly more "eco friendly". Unfortunately our baby hated it. Because it is not very absorbent, it felt constantly damp and our baby would cry until she was changed.
There isn't much elasticity (could potentially be due to the fact they are trying to be more eco friendly) so the nappy feels really loose on my baby.
I probably wouldn't try using these again...

I bought 2 packs of these nappies to try. The fit is bigger than that of the other brands but they do cover quite a weight range in the "midi" size. They do not fasten properly (very flimsy) and hence they kind of hang, they do not feel very secure. Even when I use a bodysuit to keep them secure, they get soaked so fast they absolutely cannot be used for longer than an hour two. Forget about using them overnight, which is that the package suggests. So, I am now just using them at home to avoid any accidents, until I finish the package as they are quite expensive and don't want to just throw them out... Sad, because I had high hoped.

My baby poo with Eco by Naty nappy in the car, it leaked everywhere. It's not even the first time. I tried to call the company to complain, you know what, no contact number!! The worst nappy ever. They should be banned. I have tax invoice and photos as evidences.
Want to love them but can't! Good for poops, not for wees!
THE GOOD: Love the ideology behind them, love the neutral pattern (I hate the characters we find on the girl specific nappies in other brands), love the fact there's no chemicals, and LOVE the fact that poo explosions are caught in these so well! Our bub is only 3rd percentile, so all the other nappies in her size (size 2) are 4-8kg whereas Naty Eco nappies come in better size options and we can get them in 3-6kg. Because of this, they fit her little legs better and have been awesome at capturing the poop explosions as they're tighter.
THE B...AD: They are really not absorbent of wee, so whilst poops are captured (if the nappy is dry, we haven't had a soggy nappy pooped in), after a couple of pees, the nappy needs changing. Generally they last our 4-month old around 2/3 hours so managing to make them last between her feeds, but they are super soggy - any longer and I end up with a lap full of baby pee as they simply can't hold anymore. Once wet, the leg holes seem to sag and the pee just trickles on out - I literally had a full wee on me the other day not just a leak - and it had only been on for 4-hours. Granted longer then I would normally go, but other brands last all-night 8+ hours and don't leak wee. I also touched the nappy and found they are really wet after she has peed - I can't imagine sitting in wetness can feel very nice and might be coincidence, but we had our first and only nappy rash and I am sure it is due to the absorbency of these nappies. Such a shame as they tick so many other boxes! We keep some back for times when we know she is due a pooplosion as other nappies just don't fit her legs the same to capture poop leaks, so they are good for that purpose, but I would be wary of using them all day as will just wind up changing her wet clothes multiple times as has been the case. Would give these 3.5 ranking as 3 is a bit stingy, but it's not an option unfortunately!
