We were recently sent a very exciting package!
It contained a couple of cloth nappies and we all know how slightly obsessed I am with reusable nappies. This brand is not yet available in the UK so it is a bit of an exclusive.
The brand is Rock-a-bums they are an innovative 5 in 1 nappy and come in lots of lovely rock and roll designs. You also have the choice of snaps or velcro.
Personally I prefer some brands in snaps and some brands in velcro and we own a mix of both.
We were sent both snaps and velcro to try out, the fit on both nappies was good but I personally preferred the snaps on this brand, how ever the velcro is very good quality and very sticky.
Now let me explain the 5 in 1 bit, this is very exciting as it allows you to use them in 5 different ways, you can use them as a pocket nappy, you can use them as an all in one, you can use them as an all in two, you can use the bomb proof cover as a cover for a fitted nappy and also they can be used as a hybrid with a disposable insert. So very clever! It’s great to have so many options. We decided to use them as an all in one.
We adjusted the size as needed with the rise snaps and snapped in one insert and off we went. I found them to be a really good fit for Arabella, we are lucky because pretty much every brand of nappy seems to fit her with no issues, she has good proportions but there is plenty of room for adjustment with the rise snaps. The absorbancy of the nappy was good even with just using the one insert, it lasted the normal 4 hour time span between changes with no leaks or issues. If you do have a heavy wetter you have the option of using 2 inserts.
The inserts are made of synthetic fabrics so wash well and dry quickly. This also means they don’t require loads of prewashing, just one cycle and they are ready for the bum.
And lastly here are a couple of picture of Arabella modelling her Rock-a-bums, and I think she is rocking that bum! And as you can see the prints are gorgeous and the fit is just lovely (slightly better on the snaps for us).
