Have used huggies on my son since birth but thought I would try these as they are bamboo and thought they must be good as they are expensive
They have leaked so often it’s not funny
I always take necessary positioning precautions for my little boy yet they leak so badly his top and pants are saturated
Not at all impresssed
Don’t waste your money

I loved these nappies
I really like these nappys and had no issues with leaking. But I do like to change every 3 hours because I don’t like leaving nappies on till they are full

I read reviews of these nappies after purchasing them and wish I had before buying. As mentioned in other reviews these nappies leak. They have a terrible fit and are pretty flimsy though the taps. Terrible product.

Leaks every time
Have tried going up a size, down a size and changing right before bed time but my toddler wakes up wet every time. This never happens with other nappies... it’s sooooo frustrating. The main thing nappies are meant to be in leak proof and Tooshies fail at this.

A nappy has one job, these sadly fail!
Used these on my newborn son and unfortunately they don’t do the job they’re meant to - they leak every time resulting in a full change of clothes. Very disappointed considering the higher price point. Defeats the purpose of being a more sustainable product when I consider all the extra washing I’ve had to do this week!

Changed brand and regretted it
I have always used Huggies. Changed to Toms and each night bub was worn a nappy it has saturated through the lining and left his sleep suit and clothing wet. Never had a problem through the night before so I'm really disappointed. Tonight he has gone to bed without a sleep suit because I had to wash it and it wasn't dry in time for bed.

No issues here
Expensive nappies but I've been happy with them. Did have some trouble getting used to the fasteners, they didn't always unstick easily to fasten but I'm used to them now. Haven't had a single leak and we only use them as night nappies so they are very full in the morning.

The quality is getting worse
My baby is 4 months old and we had been using Tooshies since she was born (I have been using the pads and maternity pads from TOMS) and we were happy with it. But when we tried the new version and it wasn’t great as the old one. It seems really really thin and hard. It leaks everywhere and couldn’t hold as much liquid as the old one. My baby has one long sleeps at night which is only about 6-7 hours and she’s always wet through. It’s not only leaking but it’s also wet through the lining. I gave it a try for about a week and I made sure that I p...ut the nappy on properly and it’s still leaking. I'm truly disappointed. We want to support your products and be more responsible to the world but not by washing her bed sheets everyday! I hope the quality gets better.

Flaps don't stick, leaking everywhere!
Please don't bother buying these nappies for your little one/s. The flaps never stick with the front part of the nappy. This means that they leak everywhere. Through the night, if that happens, the baby wakes up because they feel uncomfortable. I don't even know how these nappies are still on the market.

I used to love their nappy. The older version of the nappy that is. I use to even recommend it to my fellow moms. But since they change and upgraded it, it's not so great. Now the nappy just feel hard all around and shorter in the belly area which is too short to go around. This always causes leaks. The only time it won't leak is if I make it super tight. I mean like super tight. If I do that, there will be marked all over my baby’s tummy and thighs. I'm truly disappointed. I bought a lot as I use to love it and thought the newer ones will be b...etter than the old ones. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be more wrong. I wish I had kept the receipt so I could go and return them. Now I have no choice but to use them because I dont want to waste them as they cause me a lot of money. Truly disappointed.

We used Tooshies by Tom on our newborn son and I am so incredibly disappointed. Three times now the nappy has leaked completely through the lining, not the side, but the actual lining.
Will be avoiding these at all costs!
Absolute waste of Money
Bought this diaper from woolies as it was on sale for trial and it’s one of life’s biggest regrets as the fastener is always coming off. Once Bub takes a walk, he comes running back with a side of the diaper undone with the diaper down his leg.
Sometimes u can see a big lump inside his pants as the diaper has shifted to one when undone and it got to a time, I tried doing up the same diaper about 5 times which made my Bub to cry due to his inability to freely without the fear of his diaper coming undone.

Very disappointed with the quality of the fasteners as they easily break whilst worn - most nights I would find the broken nappy around my toddler’s leg! I was hoping to be a long term purchaser of these nappies due to the natural fibres, biodegradable elements and ethics of brand, but sadly won’t be a repeat buyer.

Tried, wouldn't buy it again
A very disappointed with my purchase, thought give it a go being called organic nappy. Hard, around the belly not enough to go around, looks just not comfortable. Wouldn't buy it or recommend it to others

DO NOT BUY
These nappies are terrible! Every time my 3 month old poos it leaks out the sides and all through her clothes. I have never had a problem with Huggies and now I have poo on my car seat and throughout my cot due to these Tooshies nappies being unable to hold any poo whatsoever! I would love to be more environmentally friendly when it comes to nappies but it makes it hard when they don’t do what they are supposed to do! They are more expensive than Huggies nappies as well - stay away!

I really wanted a cost effective eco nappy and liked the old style Tooshies. Since they changed their factory from Mexico to China, and their nappies are now called "new and improved", they are terrible.
I understand they are now more "eco" and that part sounds great, but they now constantly leak and are of poor quality.
You now use 2 to 3 times the nappies to make up for the leakages, which is hardly good for the environment, not cost effective and not fit for purpose. For the first time since using these, my baby is red. It's like the top ...absorbency layer is of inferior quality and the wetness just sits on the skin. I really wanted to like these, the price point is good for an eco nappy, they are now readily available in the supermarket, but they are just not usable. I've read some of the reviews and noticed this is across the board since they have changed, and sizing also an issue.

- Tom Tooshies Infant (4-8kg)
Do not buy (same feedback as for the newborn pack)
I am writing a review for that size of nappies too because I don’t want other parents to have that kind of experience.
Same problem: pee goes through the nappies and wets clothes after 2 hours wear.
So not worth buying... I have similar problems with the Lovekins brand. I understand they try to avoid the outer kind of « plastic » film but at the end of the day we need nappies that don’t keep baby wet and don’t wet bed and cloth requiring to wash everything all the time (that’s not that environmentally friendly...)
My baby was super uncomfortabl...

These are the worst nappies we have ever used. In the past 2 nights our bub has either completely wet through or the tabs have come loose on all 4 of the tooshies nappies we have put him in. Changed him this morning at 5am - he only woke because he was completely wet through. Then at 7:30 found him completely wet through again as one of the tabs has come loose. Have had no issues with the major brand name disposable nappies (this is our second child). The quality of this product is so low it is not fit for purpose and I'm surprised they are allowed to be sold in Australia.

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.
