I went from a 5 star to a 1 with the new design
So sad. I loved this product. I loved bragging about how I had found an alternative to the big pharma pollution. But the recent change in design has left my baby wet and waking double the time, it doesn’t fit properly around the legs or with the webbing Inside and she’s petite! It hangs around her bum and leaks at the top. Please go back to the old snug design - if it’s not broken, don’t fix it!
More leaks than any other nappy by far
I like the idea of their products, I could even forgive the no indicator line but the very basic requirement for a nappy is it holds what comes out of the baby. Perhaps the fit was bad on my baby but comparing to alternatives that never leaked I had 4 leaks in one day with Tooshies. My biggest regret is I bought so many to test.
To make matters worse, Tooshies seemed to irritate the baby too.

Old size for newborn better
I used the newborn Size 1 before they changed the size/design. Now, after a blast or wee, you can feel the outer material is a little damp. I’ve had some leakage on the back but it could be ecaude it wasn’t done up tight enough, though if too tight I’d worry about circulation.
New design is bigger for some reason and wider between the legs, although still smaller than newborn huggies. I prefer the more snug old design as it fit my newborn perfectly. I have since switched to rascal and friends to see if it’s better as they are thinner, but I have a feeling I may end up coming back. I would still use these but due to design change I am looking elsewhere.
New improved - terrible
Baby was 2.8kg and the Tom nappies newborn were superb. Narrow.
New improved nappies too big and gape around legs, and my baby is bigger now!! 3.8kg. Wasted of Mickey after buying bulk

Leaked through every time
Swapped from Huggies in an attempt to be more environmentally friendly. Total disaster. Leaked through every time so I went straight back to Huggies the next day. Really disappointed as was keen to try something different.
Leaks poo - useless product
We have been using this product for our newborn baby for about 2 months and noticed there is a new nappy design from the late August 2020 batch (that we started using a couple of days ago) which is essentially useless. The nappy has been leaking poo each time our baby poops around the rear top edge and on the sides where the poo would run along the nappy depending on the baby's position at the time. While the nappy absorbs pee well, it does not hold any running poo at all and we have had to change the baby's clothes about 5-6 times a day due to...the poo leakage since starting this new August batch a couple of days ago. With a newborn and sleep deprivation, we cannot afford the time and effort to keep changing the baby's full set of clothes each time she poops and will be using another brand instead.

New and unimproved
We used Tooshies newborn, changed every 3 hours so didn’t find any issues. Once baby started sleeping through the night we had to swap out to Huggies.
Thought we’d try the new and improved version of Tooshies for now 10 month old baby and they don’t last more than 2-3 hours. Nappy full, leaking, smelly, baby left wet and missing adhesive straps.
Would be useful to have the packaging open on the right side to get nappies out easily.

Don’t buy - new design faulty
The old design of these nappies was awesome: slim, cute and absorbing. (This review used to be a 5 star-review)
The new design is bulky and the pee goes through the nappy. It does not leak on the sides, it just goes through. My daughter is 8 weeks old, and wakes every 2 or 4 hours. We change her every time she wakes or feeds and still the nappies can’t retain the pee.
I am writing this review at 4:20am because I am so annoyed: I had to change her clothing as well as her whole bed because of these nappies.
The worst part is that I had ordered packs for the size above and will have to go through them...
it’s obviously super environmentally friendly to have to change these nappies every 2 hours max...

why did they change them
I bought these for my tiny baby girl who weighed less than 3 kilos. I had some left over from previous bub and they were a perfect fit for the little one in fact they were the only nappy that did fit her. I then bought a new packet when I ran out of the old stock and I was disappointed to find that the new ones are huge and actually fall off her. Why would they change something that was so good to something that is not appropriately sized for a new born baby. I have so many different brands on hand ready to use and went out of my way to find the tooshie newborn only to find I had actually wasted my money. This new design are horrible and would advise anybody to stay away from them.
Ruined a great thing
Old design was fantastic, reliable, fit really well, super absorbent etc. new design is big and gapes around legs looks really uncomfortable because there’s so much nappy bunching up and leaks straight away. The tabs stretch and are flimsy and come undone and the nappies have a weird smell as soon as they are wet. Have ruined a great product.
Go back to the old design
Have they changed their design? We haven’t used them for a while and have recently come back to them but I regret the decision. Have they always leaked this
Great for environment bad for leaks
They leak if not changed every hour. We’ve had many leaks now because we’ve gone an hour and a half as baby was asleep. I’m disappointed as I excited about using a product which was good for the environment too.
Really soft nice feeling nappy but my girl is only just 3kg and the newborn seem huge on her. Had leaks on every nappy since trying these. Going to go back to huggies it seems.
Was a fan, not a fan anymore!
I used tooshies for my new born and loved the design and how much it would capture. I am find though their new design is not so good. Not only do they leak both poo and pee, but you can smell the pee from the nappy not like other brands. When I change my daughter in the morning, if she has the nappy on for a while, (I’m not going to wake her to change the nappy) it smells strongly of urine. I’m looking at other brands now that are more reliable.
Worst Nappies Ever
Two nights in a row my newborn daughter woke up completely wet because these nappies had leaked through. They are cheap, horrible and barely stay on. Will not be buying again, would rather use a cloth nappy than these.
Please bring back old design!!!
We used to love these, such a good fit. However now we have had to change nappies because they just leak through.
Very disappointing, we really want the old design back.
Will never buy again
I’ve been using Tooshies Nappies since birth on my 2 year old daughter. I loved these Nappies even though at times they were had to get at the last minute. The slim fit was perfect for her petite body.
Since the new and improved Nappies have replaced them, they may as well be one of the nasty commercial Nappies. Apparently their community wanted larger sizing which means they’re just like every other brand and not slim fitting which made them unique.
They don’t offer samples and if you buy a packet that doesn’t fit based on their sizing rec...ommendations it’s too bad. I’ve spent enough time and money and have to throw out a whole packet that are huge and no where near the old size I was using. It seems the improvement had been unsuccessful like many other reviewers have experienced and the customer service has also become poor. I won’t be surprised if Tooshies loses many customers because we are “the community” and you’re not listening. Maybe their new philosophy is to cater to “social media influencers” and not the customers who have spent thousands of dollars on their Nappies. It’s such a shame, I used to rave about Tooshies and used nothing else. I’m now trying other brands because it’s getting hard to locate any of the old stock.
Do not buy!!!!
Never had a nappy that leaks so much so quickly! Three hours into my 6mos sleep and he was soaked through and screaming. If I could rate these nappies 0 stars I would. DO NOT BUY!!!!!
great echo nappies that don't break the bank
I've been really happy with these nappies. Purchased for my newborn at 5 weeks switching from Bamboo Nature newborn size 1's (which were good but expensive and was getting quite a few leaks by week 4). my baby boy can sleep the whole night without the nappy leaking, holding 9-10hrs of wee. they look cute, lots of room, nice high back with is good for the big poos AND its a nappy with no nasty chemicals so his bottom stays soft and cute!
