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.
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.
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.

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...

Bad performing nappy
This is a very inconsistent and disappointing nappy and gave us a very bad experience on our recent holiday with bub getting wet and cold. I bought one pack while on holidays a few months back as I liked the smaller pack size for our luggage. The nappies seemed all right, though we switched back to our regular Babylove nappies once we got home. Fast forward to our next holiday and I decided to buy another new pack to throw into our luggage - again, only due to the size of the pack. Big mistake! These nappies felt different from the first pack. ...In the first pack, the nappies had a hard cardboard-like feel inside. I thought this might be uncomfortable for bub but at least they didn't leak. The nappies from the second pack were soft and flimsy and constantly leaked! Bub was wet soon after we got off the plane and at first I thought it was just a fluke. Unfortunately for us, we had gone from summer in Australia to winter in the nothern hemisphere, so when they leaked again while we were out and about, our poor bub was wet and freezing cold. We hadn't noticed in time because we were used to using Babylove nappies which never leak! Bub ended up catching a cold. We can't say for sure if it was due to getting cold from the leaking nappy, but these nappies contributed to us all having a miserable time with every single one leaking until we could find a decent local shop that sold nappies. As I said, the material is very flimsy and also the slimfit design does not ensure the nappy is a tighter fit preventing leaks; rather, there is less absorbent material available to soak up fluid. I will never buy Tom Tooshies again!
Great balance of performance and sustainability.
We have used the TOM Organic Nappies in the Crawler size over the last month and have been most impressed by their performance. I love so much about these nappies - from the funky little designs to their durability. The environmentally sustainable mindset of TOM organic is something that strongly resonates with our family, and something I really want to show my support for.
The Dior of nappies!!!
As soon as I heard Tooshies by Tom were being released I had to get my hands on them! (I'm a number one fan of Tom organic)
I was not disappointed! In actual fact after having tried various other nappy brands I was convinced that Tooshies were the best nappies I had come across! Not only are they good for baby's bottom but they are great for the environment! We have never had nappy rash, any accidents or any issues for that martlet! And the baby wipes are just as good. As they don't contain any parabens, alcohol or chemicals I can be sure that even if bubs puts them in his mouth there won't be a reaction to them!! Congratulations Tooshies by Tom for creating 2 such amazing products!
Love Tooshies by TOM!
I have been using Tooshies nappies and wipes with my baby for about 4 months. Great product! We had no "accidents" at all! Better to know that it is made of plant-based and sustainable materials! I first bought it because of that and had no regrets! Love Tooshies by TOM!!!!!
