Great during the day/ Awful for over night


We love that these nappies reduce waste, it’s why we initially bought them. They are great for during the day (short periods of time) however night time is not okay. We did two insert, one normal and one crimped as suggested but he leaked every single time (I find he leaks WORSE with crimped ones in). I then contact Hippybottomus and a lady suggested using 3 flat liners. Not only did it make the nappy extremely bulky but it also didn’t work. Every morning (sometimes during the night) I’m having to wash his bedding and his nighttime clothes. We really didn’t want to use wasteful nappies. We will continue to use HB during the day but I would recommend getting something else for night time.

Purchased in September 2018.

One of the best I've tried


Having heard some stories about cloth nappies we wanted to try something different for our kids and gave these a go after seeing them on sale one day, the normal price is towards the dearer end of the market but the quality makes up for it. Would recommend it.

Purchased in March 2019.

Wish the product was as good as their customer service


I’ve been using the nappies for 6 months now and all I’ve had is problems. I have had two replacements in the first two months one shell replacement and one liner replacement. Customer service is great and very understanding. But now 6 months on I’m having more problems with more of my shells especially coming apart on the inside with the waterproof layer. I am washing according to their instructions and am making sure I follow it to a T. But it doesn’t look like they are going to last me until toilet training. Which is very disappointing

Purchased in September 2018 at Hippybottomus for $350.00.

Only nappy we use now


As soon as bub hit 3 months we wanted to move away from cloth nappies. We got trial packs of several brands and Hippybottomus just kept coming out on top. Inserts dry faster than the rest, the fit keeps poosplosions in without being too tight and leaving red marks and lastly, small but important thing, when he poops it doesn’t end up inside the pocket entry. These are just designed and made really well, crazy absorbent and soft and in cute patterns! Only ones we use now.

I went from being so worried about using them, to using them as much as I can.. Even in public. Beautiful quality, no leaking through & baby is loving them. Getting lots of compliments about them. Recommending you guys to all friends & family with little ones. Skeptical husband even loves them! Definitely buying another pack real soon, so I can use Hippybotamus cloth nappies full time.

Perfect fit no leaks


Very happy with my order, they dry super fast once washed and we have had no leaks at all. So happy to have purchased them and will be stocking up on more shortly. Loving the colour options that have been released too. Can’t wait to recommend these nappies to my friends

Lack in customer service


I have ordered my starter pack 3 days ago and no response on my emails/messenger and no updates on progress of my order. My Rumparooz from America ordered same day has already been shipped.
Seriously disappointed and worried that I will loose my or wait weeks for my order, and that from a local supplier

Practical and Funky


Great product: practical with environmental and economic benefits. I bought the trial pack last year and started using them when my son was 3 months old. I’ve since purchased extra nappies and inserts. They’re very absorbent and, along with a singlet, are all that my 7 month old wears in the NQ heat. Highly recommended. Their bamboo fibre breast pads are excellent too.

We use Hippybottomus for our boy and they have been great. We have had a couple that we have had to send back but not an issue there. The only issue is the amount that the nappy will absorb. We have tired two liners, but it doesn't absorb enough, we have had to put in tea towels over night to absorb the extra fluid...our boy is a big wetter.
Easy to wash and quick to dry...

Hippybottomus Nappy


I love these nappies there are by far the best nappies we have, I always reach for them first. I originally bought a trail pack then after a few weeks purchased the supplementary pack well worth the money. Great fit on my 18 month old great colours and prints and great customer service, I have had 2 nappies delaminate very early into using them ( black and brown ) due to issues with the PUL from manufacturing they replaced straight away and I haven’t had any problems any of the others they are used full time and I get 3 hours out of a nappy with no leaks.

Loved the product, didn’t expect it to be so good.


Great product. Got it from an exhibition, didn’t expect it to be this good. Keeps my baby dry for almost 4 to 5 hours. Beautiful colours and patterns. I find my baby very comfortable in this nappy. Though it’s big for newborn babies I would recommend can be used from 4 to 5 months onwards. Can save a lot of money. They are very easy to clean and dries very fast. Great product highly recommended.

Best cloth nappies by far!


We initially purchased a couple of hippybottomus nappies along with trial packs of the other top rating nappies, and found these the best by far. We are now buying a full-time set. They fit beautifully, and are the only nappies that make no marks on our chubby baby’s legs. They are very easy to clean (we wash in cold using Aware powder with a pre-wash), and dry almost straight away. They are also very cheap - amazing value for money. We haven’t had any issues with leaking day or night (with a booster). Would highly recommend.

Wonderful cloth nappies


These cloth nappies are the best!! They are so easy to use, draw moisture away from baby’s skin and dry so quickly on the line. I’ve been using them for over a year and couldn’t imagine ever using awful disposables again. The few times I’ve had to; I’ve hated the plastic feel against my baby’s skin and feel terrible about what it does to the environment. I’ve tried Pea Pods too and Hippybottomus are far superior.

Comfy, stylish and practical


These cloth nappies are fantastic. I was worried about the cleaning process, but it's super easy and the nappies came with clear instructions. I keep them in a nappy bucket, do a rinse chuckle in the evening then add other items before dog a wash in the morning. The nappies are easy to use and soft on baby's bottom; they come in a wide range of bright colours and patterns and dry quickly. I'm saving the environment as well as my money.

How to remove yellow stains on nappy inserts?

Hi there, I have been trialling the hippybottomus nappies and quite like them. I am interested to get a full time pack but I am keen to know how long these will last... I would like to think they last 3-4 children but I have read that the PUL isn't as good quality as other brands. Has anyone had any long term experience with these? Has the fit been good with all your children? Thank you in advance.

Hi, I am expecting twins and I am wondering how many nappies I would need to buy?

2 answers

I bought the Nappy Stash which has 24 nappies. This allows me to only wash every 2-3 days. I did find that as my Bub was quite small at birth, that the nappies were too bulky on her and I used disposables for a while until she put on weight. Now I only use disposables for emergencies

As others have answered, I would use disposables to start with as they are bulky to begin with. Also with newborn twins... I don't think you would want to start off with washing mountains of nappies. I would recommend you start with aldi brand newborn nappies which are affordable and I found them great, until they are about 8 weeks then start with the 24 pack which is designed for one baby. If this works well for your babies look at getting another 24 pack. The one pack lasts 2.5 to 3 days depending on how frequently you need to change bubs.
