Adhesive stuck to baby’s skin
Nappies seem good enough. We didn’t like the fact that there wasn’t a wetness indicator but we could live without that. They do hold a lot and managed to contain an explosive poo. We won’t buy these again though because some adhesive stuck the nappy to our baby’s back. In order to protect his skin I had to use wet wipes to gently peel the nappy away.
Favourite nappy (in most sizes)
I love the softness, absorbency and design of these nappies and have use them with my son in many sizes. I have found them to be fantastic nappies that don't give my son rash and fit really well, except size five, which I found to be long/tall, resulting in a sag around the leg (and my son has fat thighs). I was a loyal buyer of these nappies but had to change due to constant leaks in size 5.
I'll definitely try the size up when my son is due as I've never had any problems other than that.

Best nappy out there
My son has had zero issues using this brand since 6m (he's now 1), great value, soft and thick, last long, cute design.
I would recommend them they are better than huggies in my opinion
Exposed adhesive ripped baby’s skin
We were really happy with these nappies for our two week old baby, however tonight when removing a nappy there was exposed adhesive on the inside back of the nappy attached to her skin. We removed it as carefully as we could, but she now has a red raw stripe down her lower back.
We will have to check every remaining nappy for exposed adhesive and won’t buy this brand again.
Bought rascals as a cheaper alternative to huggies ultimate due to reviews on choice, my baby is size 2 now at 5.5kg, but the rascals have leaked every single time through the leg with poo, even if it’s not a big poo, to be honest I’m really shocked and surprised. So I’ve gone back to huggies ultimate and had no poo leaks. Also the tabs on the rascals aren’t as grabby as the huggies ultimate, when my baby wriggled they kept pulling off which was annoying. Also for those saying huggies are made in China... where do you think rascals are made?
Purchased in April 2020 at Coles for A$12.00.

Soft and good absorbency
Our son used Huggies since the day he was born. When he was 8 months old, our friend recommended Rascal & Friends. The high back design is leak proof and we rarely had any incidents in it. Very absorbent, my son wears it overnight for 10-11 hours (he is a tummy sleeper). The only downside is it is exclusive to Coles.

burned my babies bum
The diaper burned my baby's skin and it took awhile to heal up. Started red then the skin burned off. It took days to heal and petroleum jelly worked to soothe it. They don't advertise being hypo allergenic on the box so I don't recommend for new born.

Best nappy to replace China made Huggies
After Huggies moved their production to China and I experienced leaks with every single nappy, I was forced to try a whole bunch of other nappies. I tried Pampers, BabyLove, Tooshies by Tom, Mamia. Some of these nappies would state 7kg - xkg and were too small even for my 6kg baby and I had to buy size 4 of these brands instead of size 3. Rascal + Friends were the only generously sized nappies with a great fit comparable to 'made in Australia Huggies' and with a decent thickness to them. They're the only nappies I would trust to use overnight. I wish I had tried them sooner instead of wasting money on the other brands!
Purchased in January 2020 at Coles.
I’ve tried most brands available at supermarkets and this one is a winner hands down. 10/10 would recommend.
Great performing nappy. Cute design however would like different designs or colours for each size so I don’t get them confused! Would also love an eco version that’s biodegradable!
- Never had a leak or nappy rash.
- Love that there’s no harsh chemicals used and the nappy is super soft.
- I’ve used both the nappies and nappy pants and both fit my daughter really well. The nappy pants seem super stretchy so would fit most sizes I imagine.
The best nappies you can get!!
Will only ever use these!!
I tried them all and these were the winner!!
Have used infant and crawler and found both absolutely fantastic!! Touch wood they last a full night without leaks
Have been using this brand for more than a year and never had any issues with it, no leaking or allergy reaction. Very good quality for the price and very competitive to other well known brands.
Our favourite nappy brand!
We love rascal and friends for our baby. We have never had a blowout unlike with certain competitor brands and the colour of the nappies is just too cute. 10/10
I have used a lot of different nappies these were pretty good they hold everything in very well and the quality is pretty good as well. Will definitely use these again.
We have been using crawler (size 3) full time for a few months now and we have never ever had a leak or explosion.
My daughter sleeps anywhere from 10-12 hours at night and no issues whatsoever. I really love the high back and the double peak guard.
I buy them by the carton, a box of 90 for $27! I think it’s really great value, especially in comparison to huggies.
They aren’t big and bulky like huggies and definitely not thin and crappy like cub. I swear by these nappies. They are soft and look comfy and never leave marks on my daughter.
...Those who have said about leaks I think may need to go up a size, that’s personally what I’ve found when we have had leaks in the past. These are my preferred full time nappy and in the future will try the nappy pants when missy is old enough.
The best nappies
Love these nappies. We never have leakages and they are perfect for my girl with sensitive skin. We also use the wipes and love them, where we have had problems with other, big name brands.
Burn baby, burn
Absolute rubbish. Son has had constant chemical irritation and it leaves him in tears because it's so painful. Will never buy this brand again. Don't think these were ever tested properly.
This product this work for us. We started out with other brands that worked fine, then tried Rascal and friends but the nappies kept leaking through the log holes. I definitely wasn’t happy with the amount of laundry and spot-cleaning I had to do so I ditched the rest of the pack sadly.
Best nappies I have ever used!
I have tried over 10 other Nappy brands and rascal and friends works best for my son! No leaks overnight, high waistband and never irritates his skin. We will only use rascal and friends from now on.
I started using the nappy pants with my toddler as i wasn't happy with huggies anymore. They are secure, easy to use and comfy. My 2yo has never had an issues with rashes since using them.
I now use the nappies with my 2mo. I found they were slighty too big for my newborn (2.9kgs, he was pretty little) they do not have a wetness indicator so new mums might struggle with this. They are very soft and easy to use, i love the green colour!
I had an issue with one pack where there was a slight sticky patch on a spot on every nappy (obviously a man...
Works best for my daughter
I am very happy with this brand. No leakage, no skin problem and reasonably priced. I think for my daughter's body shape, this brand works really well. She sleep 8+ hours at night, but never had a leakage problem so far. During the day she is quite active, but again never have any issue. I used to use another big brand for my older child and it worked perfectly fine, so I first tried the same brand for my daughter as well. Guess what! I had constant leakage problems with the brand that worked very well for another child. I think every baby has a different body shape, and you just have to find a right brand that works best for your child. Anyway these nappies work really well for my baby and I highly recommend it.
