Super trim nappy!
These are one of my go to nappies.
I've used them on both my kids, both have fit into them differently and has held up great after 2years of constant usage and washing!
These nappies come with 2 inserts. 1 long snake and 1 short insert wich is great for newborns. The snap in inserts are bamboo and are super absorbent. Can also be used as a pocket nappy or lay in/snap in nappy. They are 3 snap rise with a double snapping waist. Great from newborn to toddler. I love the patterns these nappies come in and I also love their plain nappies also. Great options for both girl or boys.

Great nappies & easy to use
We have been using Econaps full time for almost 5 months now and we absolutely love them! They are made so well and very easy to use, I love the patterns and the fact that they regularly bring out new designs. We have 24 in total for full time use.
We have a heavy wetting boy and recently had to buy boosters as he was flooding his nappies, we purchased 3x mixed booster packs and love the slim design of the hourglass boosters and the trifold are great for overnight on top of his normal inserts.
I recommend everyone try cloth nappies and use Econaps !

Shorter than expected lifespan
Purchased these in early 2018 and used on one child from mid-2018, currently still in use...
The inserts have perished and are almost unusable despite following their washing guidelines. I've also noticed the wings and legs are becoming worn with small holes forming on the edges of the nappies.
Whilst they have lasted almost three years the inserts have been showing signs of damage for about half of that time. I expected better and I hope they improve the materials they use as this has the potential to be a much better product.

There are better brands, don’t waste your money on these.
I recently bought a few of these to add to my cloth nappy stash, mostly because of the prints and trusted the raving reviews.
I have been using modern cloth nappies on my babies for over three years and I have to say these are the worst I’ve used in terms of ease of use.
To start with, the outer patterned PUL fabric is very cheap/poor quality, making the nappies time consuming and very difficult to stuff with the inserts because they just get caught on the inside. Not good when you have better things to do rather than waste time stuffing napp...

We only started using these when bub was about 4 weeks old as, even on the smallest setting, we found them too chunky for him to the point he would roll to the side with them on! However now we are using them during the days full time and love them! The washing is not a problem as we do washing every day anyway. The liners are super soft and covers are well stitched to prevent leaks. I’ve just ordered a few more plus the wet bag to keep some back ups in the nappy bag. Highly recommend.

Don't Bother - Twice the price of other nappy brands and a leaking nightmare with terrible customer service
I purchased the trial pack $69 when my baby was born. I have tried and tried with these nappies but i cannot get them to work. I have washed them so many times following the instructions on the site and they just leak. I tried them repeatedly on my baby and the liquid just poured out the sides and didn't absorb at all so i have given up and thrown them away. I gave up and purchased another brand that was half the price, exactly the same but a different lining and work like a dream (Hippybottomus) so i KNOW it is not the way i am fitting them a...nd i really didn't appreciate being told that it was my fault and just getting the same scripted reply telling me to watch the videos on their website. For some reason the liquid doesn't absorb into the lining on the covers, it is apparently supposed to go through the material into the insert. This does not happen, I have put water on a nappy with an insert in and it will simply pool on the lining and not get to the insert at all. The inserts also take AGES to dry (like two days minimum) which means you are waiting for them to dry and will need to have more of them to be able to use them full time. Customer service refused to accept the issues (i sent them a few videos showing clearly the problem) and repeatedly told me it was my fault and refused to refund my money. Do yourself a favour and skip this overpriced crap and go with another brand.

Elastics don't last the test of time
The leg elastics have completely worn out unfortunately and will have to be fixed/replaced prior to baby number 2’s arrival. Considering price of nappies and waste factor - they should last for multiple kids. The nappies were cared for and washed as per instructions and my first child isn’t even 2 yet.
A leaking nightmare!
In our house we use no once disposables except for nappies after my experience with EcoNaps.
The nappies leak through the stitches meaning that every nappy change is my change of clothes.
I started using them since he was a newborn and they quickly started leaking. They would leak less when he was tiny but by the time he was 4 months old they leaked all the time. I tortured my son for months trying to find the right "setting" thinking that I must have been doing something wrong but nothing worked and he kept leaking. I literally tried everyth...

Perished after 2 years
I've used these on and off for 2 years, always washed according to instructions and treated with utmost care. The leg elastic is already perished on most nappies. I would have loved if they lasted longer, so I'm a pretty disappointed, I thought they would have been sturdy enough to be used for many years. Otherwise easy to use and really cute designs.

Beautiful designs. Good quality inserts. Brilliant fit. Such a wonderful brand. Would highly recommend. Inserts take a little longer to dry than a trifold style but this is a minor setback that isn’t a drawing point

Not a good experience with the product or customer service.
My little girl was wet and uncomfortable, used for several months , outlay of over $200. Poor customer service . After several emails econaps response was " we don't give refunds for change of minds" .... Not a change of mind the nappies left my child soaked through. I thought I was purchasing from a considerate and compassionate company but No....... only in it for the dollar.

Best nappies by far
These are wonderful nappies, there my “go to” nappies. The inserts are unreal! I use cloth day and night and these are great for nights too. Postage was super fast. Trim fit, lovely design. Would love them to make more designs.

Terrific Modern Cloth Nappy - the inserts are the best!
EcoNaps really are terrific MCNs. The quality is great, the designs are lovely (although there could be more of them!) and I love that they are convertible between pocket nappies and AI2s. The Kam snaps are really sturdy - great that there are two levels of them, makes it really secure (and as such, the fit is really good and I haven't had leaks). The real winner here are the inserts. I wasn't sure to begin with - they are terry towel bamboo, different to other brands - but they are SO absorbent! They do take longer to dry than other inserts, s...o am thinking of buying another set of inserts so I'll have some at hand more readily. EcoNaps tend to be a bit bulky, with the front flap bulging a bit because there's a hidden front pocket to secure the inserts (which is actually a great idea, so bulkiness is the drawback). I would also prefer two horizontal snaps across the back instead of just one, for greater insert stability. A sweet little business from Byron Bay. Postage is a bit slow but my EcoNaps came in a lovely calico drawstring bag, which was a really nice touch. Would buy more. Pros Great quality, lovely designs Convertible between pocket nappies and Ai2s. Front pocket securely holds inserts and liner in place.

Better than others
These are our favourite cloth nappy. I don't think we've ever had a leak. However my baby ends up with indents/red marks around his legs much more so than with other brands. He is not a chubby baby so I'm not sure why this is.
Don't have an issues with nappy rash with these nappies.
These nappies do end up expensive when you include shipping and it's frustrating that you can't buy them locally.
I still haven't made up my mind about these nappies...
These are very versatile nappies made from quality materials, that much is sure. We started using them when our daughter was 3 days old and 2.9kg (on the smallest setting) and we are still using them 9 months later (on a larger setting with room to further adjust the waist size). They wash up very well, particularly when dried in the sun (to whiten the liner material) - the liners are hard to get dry in a dryer. However, I'm not sure if I would purchase these again, and my reasons probably apply to any nappy, reusable or not (i.e. nappy rash, l...eaking from around the legs). Using these is a learning exercise that I sometimes give up on. Ultimately, I think it is nice to have these nappies at home to use alongside disposables or other reusables but I'm not sure they are worth the hefty investment when used in this fashion.

Questions & Answers
I need to purchase reusable nappies for a severely disabled child on a remote island in PNG - 10 years old, about 15-20kgs.

Get an answer from our members and EcoNaps representatives
These EcoNaps cloth nappies win points for versatility. They can be used by newborns (from 3.5kg), all the way up to toddler age (up to 16kg). If you’re not sure whether to opt for pocket nappies (good for heavy wetters) or all-in-2’s, EcoNaps will have you covered, with a 2-in-1 design.
A variety of snap buttons means size adjustments are plentiful, with just over 16 size settings to choose from, depending on your bub’s weight and size.
What makes Econaps nappies eco-friendly?
Econaps uses a cloth nappy cover (with materials not being specified on its website) and a choice between bamboo inserts and a suede layer built into the cloth nappy cover.
Econaps aims to apply this enviro-conscious mentality to its delivery system as well, using compostable postage satchels, recyclable boxes, and organic cotton tote bags.
