Tooshie by Tom is my only choice after trying two other brands
I started using Tooshie by Tom from the moment my baby was born. They looked fine and worked fine. The baby showed no rashes or allergies. Then a month later decided to try two other brands as they seemed to be much cheaper. One brand leaked and the snaps were bad and the other brand ended up with leaving allergies on the baby’s skin. I had to go back to Tooshie by Tom again. It is slightly expensive though when compared with other brands.
Tooshies by Tom are awesome - SO amazing to have affordable, effective Eco nappies.
These are such great nappies, mostly because they are Eco friendly, but also organic and they WORK as intended, which is always the worry when using a different nappy brand. And added bonus is that they are more compact, so easier to travel with!
Absolutely terrible and not even great eco credentials
As far as 'eco' nappies go, there are better quality ones with better eco rankings out there. The outer layer was falling apart before it was even wet. Save your money
Good nappies, small sizing
We've been using tooshies since my bub was newborn as I wanted something better for the environment. Only gripe is the small size. She is 9kg and is too big for the nappies meant to go to 16kg, so at 6 months she's now in the walker size. She still wears a size 3 huggies nappy.
We also don't put her in tooshies overnight because she usually sleeps for 12 hours and we had a few leaks when she was younger.
Positives: She doesn't seem to get as much nappy rash as with some of the other nappies we've tried. I think the wide band is great and doe...sn't fold over. They also don't have a strong chemical smell when really full. Cons: really quite expensive now she's in the biggest size. Overall I'm happy with them and do feel better about the eco friendly materials used. Haven't had any issues with faulty products like some of the other reviews on here.
Poor absorbancy and a few were faulty
The newborn nappies leaked all the time.
The infant nappies haven't leaked very much, but we have had a few with manufacturing defects where the straps are either missing or only partially attached.
The bulk pack of wipes is just a multi pack of the travel wipes.
We want to do the right thing and use biodegradable products and Australian made, but these are pretty terrible.
I will avoid in the future.
Doesn't hold anything in
So far, every single nappy I've put on my 2 month old baby has had poo seeping out the sides and/or wee come out. (He doesn't do big poos)
This isn't my first baby, I know a thing or two about putting a nappy on correctly, so this isn't user fault.
The nappies just aren't holding anything in, unfortunately! I was so keen to try these as they are supposedly better for the environment.
If you must use disposables, make it Tooshies
Baby uses modern cloth nappies most of the time, but there are some situations when disposables are necessary (nappy rash, Dad is tired, Grandma is stubborn). Tooshies are my disposable nappies of choice for their great environmental ethos. While they are not fully biodegradable/compostable (have yet to find disposables that are), at least they are made from sustainable plant-based materials (like the corn absorbent core), are chemical free, and that TOM are mindful about the entire product development process. But how do Tooshies actually perf...orm? Pros Performance. Baby can wear a Tooshie for a 10 hour night period and it would still be absorbing well mid morning. Becomes a very heavy, well contained nappy. Chemical free, made mostly from plant-based materials Fits well for smaller babies. I started Baby on Newborn and we progressed steadily to Infant; she is just hitting Crawler level now at nearly 8 mo and 7 kg.
Size 10-16kg is very small. My baby is 10.7kg and could not fit the nappy properly. I would have thought that being up to 16kg it was going to be more than enough.
Very good nappy
In the negative side, we tend to have up the back leaks from time to time in these nappies. We generally use cloth, but prefer disposable at night. It’s a very comfortable and good fitting nappy. Reduced plastic and a smaller footprint are worth the occasional blow out.
Our 3yr old toddler uses the larger size and never blows out.
They don’t sag and hold up well in the 3 years we’ve been using them.
The best one I’ve used
Now, I’m pretty down to the value when it comes to nappies. Although these were a touch dearer, thanks to my mother in-law who gifted them to me otherwise I would not have discovered them and stuck on using the most common brand... Huggies. They fit so nicely and comfortably I found when my newborn l was in that 4 to 5kgs. At this weight Huggies became too tight for my newborn, however the next size up were still too big. The straps are bigger so that it doesn’t curl up unlike the other nappies... Babylove and Huggies. They are super absorbent ...as when I’m about to change my newborn and she does the unexpected wee... as long as she is still on the nappy... it catches it all and no need for that unnecessary wet clothes. Bonus is that they are good for the environment. Give them a try specially for the delicate skin of a newborn you won’t regret it.
All sizes of Tooshies are great
We had issues with little absorbency, wetting through to clothes and nappy rashes with majority of other nappy brands. I use Toms products on myself and with so many great reviews decided to give Tooshies a try. Absolutely no complaints! Fit great, Absorb well, bub just slept through the night (12 hours) and absorbed well with no rash. We do not use anything else now. I have nothing but praise for these nappies and being environmentally friendly is a huge bonus. The only thing that could be improved is if they were available in bulk/larger packs.

Worst nappies I've used
These nappies have a really low absorbency. Every morning my little one has wet clothes and every time she does a poo it leaks onto her clothes. I won't be purchasing again.
We love these nappies
Tom’s nappies are just fantastic. We’ve used them since birth for a lactose intolerant baby who has.. well utterly horrific explosive poos.. and they are up to the task. No leaks. Plus they breathe, we’ve never had nappy rash. The designs are cute and they’re a better choice for the environment. Big fan!
Good for both baby and environment
Tried these nappies (both infant and crawler sizes) for my son as better for the environment than Huggies disposables. Very happy with them- fit well, with no leakage or nappy rash. They have cute prints. I purchased these nappies at Coles. Despite being slightly pricier than Huggies, I recommend them.
Almost half of the nappies in the package were faulty, at least one of the 2 straps used to hold the nappy was either not attached to the nappy at all or was barely attached and I wasn't able to put the nappy on properly without it tearing off completely. Other then that the nappies caused no irritation for my daughter and had no leaking, I'm not sure if i just had a faulty pack because other reviews have been really good and doesn't look like they have had any issues with the build of the nappy but I don't think i will be purchasing again due to paying for a full pack of them and only being able to use pretty much half of it.
There is no chemical smell after bub pee and it is soft for bub. No leaking problem. I love the cute pattern on the nappy as well. Just a little bit problem is there's no wetness indicator on nappy. But overall, I would recommend this nappy as it is good for environment.

An eco friendly choice that meets expectation
Edit (Feb 19): After using this brand for three months, I've recently experienced leakage a few times. I'm not sure why as my daughter may have grown a tiny bit but she is just a little over 9kg. The crawler is for up to 12kg. If I size up, then this nappy is really expensive. I now prefer the other environmental friendly nappy brand which is also available at Coles.
I've to say I wanted to try this brand for a long time but only finally did so when they were on sales. Appreciate that the costs for making organic and eco friendly produ...
Purchased in January 2019.
Good for baby and the environment
Wanted to try these out because they’re said to be good for the environment. Baby likes them, no problems with leaks or nappy rash. Unfortunately no indicator line like Huggies Ultimate, but not a big deal. Good fit, would be happy to continue using these in futur. They’re not the cheapest nappies, but worth the slightly extra cost.
Navigating the world of nappies as a first time mum was fairly daunting but I am so pleased I tried these nappies. They are very absorbent and I find them a great fit. I am lucky enough that my little girl has slept 8 hours at night from 8 weeks and we have never had any leaks.
Hello Bum Rash
We live in the tropics and it honestly seemed like these weren't breathable or simply didn't absorb the wee like they should. We used them for 4 days and my baby got a nasty rash from being damp all the time. They also felt really cardboard like and rough. I love the idea of them being a more eco friendly product but they need to work on the quality and materials used so that they aren't rashy in more humid climates.
