Very happy with these nappies
We were using other cloth nappies (more expensive) beforehand and they were leaking all the time, which was really annoying. Then a friend recommended Pea Pods and gave me one to try. We didn't have any leaks even after 4 hours (trying to push for the limit) and I bought a whole stash straight away. Have been using them for the past 6 months. I guess every baby is different and it's trial and error, but Pea Pods are perfect for my baby and I highly recommend them.
I bought the first 11 new and then some more second hand.
Purchased in September 2019 for $199.50.
I have been using these on my daughter since she was 12 weeks old and I love them. The only time I get leaks is when I forget a change. They wash and dry like a dream. I use them as snap in so and I really wish that they didnt have the pocket because I dont like the gap at the back, but if thats my only issue, I think I'm doing well.

Not perfect but nothing is
Have used these on my 6 month old for about a month. Do get about 1 leak per day from around the legs where the insert seems too wide and bunches up, but was getting *at least* one leak per day with disposables too. Definitely improves after nappies have been through the wash a few times. Has gone 12 hours at night with little leakage, again, similar to or better than she was doing in disposables. Not sure how they will go as she grows, but pretty happy for now. Starter pack comes with loads of nappies but you might want an extra booster or two.

Do not buy this product
I purchased a huge $300 starter set of these nappies. I put them in the wash so I could use them. I found about 20 press studs that had come off during the load. They literally fell apart. Terrible quality
Purchased for $300.00.
Love the insert
The insert is probably one of the best in the market. I found the adjuster slightly difficult to maneuver in order to get a good fit for my child. I would say this is sized slightly on the small side but is a very good make, otherwise.

Buttons broken and weird customer service
Nappies are good but some buttons are broken and came off after one wash. I guess its not very safe for babies cus the small objects. Contacted customer service and took them ages to get back to me, and they wanted me to post the used nappie back to them to repair it. Its very weird that they want the dirty nappie back. Very strange. Personally I think the one-sized ones are a bit too big for newborns, so I waited until 6 month. You do need to change it more often to avoid leakage, its made by cloth after all.

Horrible customer service
Would not recommend this to anyone. I'm a first time mum who'd like to try cloth nappies, bought my first trial pack my order still hasn't been shipped, tried to contact customer service, their number is not working and directs you to send them an email. After 3 days of waiting for email response still nothing, followed up and still nothing. Not sure how will I get my order. Very upsetting.

Worst customer service ever
Purchased a starter pack plus a few extra single nappies. After trying the singles with constant leaks i requested a refund on the starter pack ($199). Tried ringing at first but phone just goes straight to an answer machine which tells you their preferred contact is via email. So i emailed them only to have them reply 8 days after original email. They said a refund would be given providing products were in original condition with tags etc (which they were) and within 30 days of purchase, which they also were.
So after returning them...using overnight courier with tracking i was sent a message the following day saying my package could not be delivered due to incorrect address. So again i tried contacting them via their preferrred method of email and to date still have not received a reply. This is going on almost 3 weeks now. So now my purchase is over their 30 day return policy. My return package is sitting in Newcastle, which i have now had to request it be returned. And once returned will be useless to me. Would not recommend Pea Pods to anyone. For expensive products you would expect better customer service. Very disappointed!
Nappies don’t hold wee. Customer service disgraceful.
As a first time mum I foolishly trusted that Pea Pods would sell appropriate start up packs. I spent $400, only to find I needed half that amount of nappies, but I did need many more inserts. Spent around $600 all up to have my poor son leak through constantly. Had to change him every 1.5 hours to stop the leakage. I enquired with Pea Pods, only to be told he must be a ‘heavy wetter’. I was also schooled on how to use the product even though I’d followed the care instructions and sizing guide to the letter.
I have been in tears so many times ov...

COULD BE SO MUCH BETTER
The first 9 months of using pea pods was pretty good. I made sure I washed the liners 7 times to ensure absorbency and a liner required at night. In addition to this they are very easy to use. Unfortunately since then snaps have ripped off and the elastane in the adjustable Legs have disintegrated and require replacement. Over half of my full time collection is unusable. The warranty of these only lasts 90 days after purchase so make sure to do your research as these haven’t lasted for the use of one child.
Pea pods are amazing !
I have used these cloths for over 8 months now! I would never go another brand especially the cheap China brands that just leak. My pea pods can be on for 4-5 hours and 12 at night! Please learn how to use them before giving them a bad rating.
I put the booster on top instead of inside and that will give you the most hours when wearing. Also learn to wash them properly and you’ll never have an issue.
Best cloth nappies ever and so comfortable because of the bamboo style! Super easy to use as well not time consuming one bit.
Yes they are expensive but sooo worth it!
Thanks pea pods. Please make more advertising for your nappies so more people will turn to cloth ❤️
Not a great intro to cloth
These were the first cloth nappies I bought and being enthusiastic to start I bought far too many! (My word of advice is buy a couple of lots of different brands and see what works best! I could easily have given up on cloth had I not given another brand a go).
The inserts are great - can’t fault them - I use them all the time in other shells. It’s the shell that is the problem - I washed them and cared for them as it said on their website and within months every single nappy’s elastic had become stretched out the point of being unusable. I m...
Things you need to know about them
Firstly, don’t do what I did & think you needed them before your buns is born. There are plenty of nappy libraries you can access to find the best fit for your bins. I personally think they should stop selling them as OSFM from birth - they are too bulky for most bins until at least 4-8 weeks. I also have a side sleeper so I can’t use them at night. Plus she is also a lean baby so I do have to be extra careful with the fit or they can leak.
Now this goes for all nappies. Soak the inserts in cold water for 24 hours & then do a wash to prepare...them (so you don’t have to wash them a gazillion times first to get them to maximum absorbency). If you have a front loader, use the prewash setting. If you have a top loader do a short wash with a little detergent first & then a heavy hot wash with full detergent & they will be super clean. I dry pail them but poo soiled bits get a quick wash with detergent & a toothbrush. at 15 months they’re still going strong for daytime use. She decided before 12 months that she hated lying down for changes & they are super easy to change sitting up in your lap. I got a full time pack (24 nappies, some boosters & bamboo breat pads) at a baby expo for $300 so for the price I’m not complaining
As a child minding Grandmother I thought I'd try alternative to "landfill' disposable nappies. Should have chosen the terry towelling old fashioned nappies I used on my '70/'80s children.
Pea Pods leaked from the very beginning and seemed very 'heavy' on my 1yo granddaughter. The design of the insert is also not user friendly. Very disappointing all round and frankly just not a good enough for disposable alternative. A waste of $80.
Fabulous product horrendous shipping
Love the pea pods pilcher pants they are excellent. No leaks. I'm using them with terry cloth flat nappies. But 2 weeks shipping from nsw to Perth for ten bucks is crazy. Auspost is faster lol. Don't buy online, go in store to a stockist til they stop using fastaway couriers.
Won't be ordering from them again
Placed an order for nappies and bulk wet wipes only to be informed one week later they are out of stock. Ordered from 5 brands MCN and this was the slowest processing. Very disappointed. I was happy to wait for restock but this was not an option. Refund was issued promptly.
The worst MCN I've tried!
Pea pods are the worst nappy I've tried unfortinately. They always leak, no matter what I do. They aren't good quality. The white inserts turn grey very quickly & this doesn't happen with any other nappy insert brands I've tried. The night boosters aren't terrible quality as well, some ripped after only a few uses.
The prints are pretty and they're affordable, otherwise I would give a 1 out of 5!

Questions & Answers
Hi guys, I’m about to start using my peapods. Baby is 3 weeks.
I only washed the inserts once, is this ok? Do It need to wash more times?
Also, what’s the difference between the peapods nappies and pilchers? Can I use the insert to s in the pilchers or donI need to buy special ones?
How old / what size is the largest the one size fits all suitable for? My granddaughter was wearing a different brand of reusable nappies as an infant but she grew out of them. She is now 18 months old. I'm hoping these will be ok to fit her.
