(Sorry for poor picture quality)

The first nappy I’m reviewing is : Miosolo Rosie Posie

I had seen the Miosolo in stores many times but I always put off buying it due to bad reviews and because it only comes with a micro fibre insert.

I ordered the Miosolo along with 3 other brands from http://clothnappiesni.co.uk/bambino-mio-c-22.html/?referrer=CNNI_591420405345 (affiliate link) during their New Year sale.

When it arrived I was really pleased with the quality of the printed fabric and the stay dry fleece they use inside the nappy.
In my opinion the fabric & fleece are the best quality I’ve seen & we have tried quite a few different nappies.

I pre washed the nappy before trying it.

The insert can be pulled out so the nappy is quick drying.

I boosted it with a bamboo insert as I knew my daughter wouldn’t last long
with just 1 micro fibre insert.

The fit was much better than expected, Miosolo comes up wider & longer than most other birth to potty nappies.

My daughter is 10 months old and she could wear it on the smallest popper rise setting where on other nappies she is on the middle rise setting.

She wore the nappy for 3 hours, there were no leaks but the bamboo insert waswet so I’m happy I boosted.

Pros :

Great quality soft fabric, fleece and elastic

Generous sizing

Good fit

Unique pull out tab system

Cons :

Low absorbency

Expensive

Overall the nappy is great but I think for the price they should consider adding a bamboo layer with the micro fibre or a pop in bamboo booster so you have a choice of absorbency as some other brands have done.

Cheeky Wipes – product review

photo 1 photo 2 photo(1)

 

I received my Cheeky Wipes mini kit today, i am so excited. Sad i know, but what can i say the joy of discovering something new is great :). Such a simple idea but well thought out.

I put them straight in the washing machine and have been using them already as you don’t need to wait for them to dry before using them. Just fill the box to the appropriate level, put 4/5 drops of the soaking solution (essential oils), put the wipes in and your ready to go!

So far Ive used them for :

Toddler (20 months) nappy change – Well as soon as i had the box filled my son done a big poo so perfect chance to try the wipes, my boys love kiwi so when they poo it can be a nightmare getting the small black seeds of their bum. The wipes are great!!! I used 3 wipes in total for one change…that’s very little compared to what i normally use when using disposables.

Wiping toddlers hands & face – I used the wipes to clean the boys after dinner time, my eldest loves them already. After i cleaned his face he came back within minutes asking me to wipe it again with the new wipes.

I was so excited when making my purchase i didn’t really think ahead, i ordered the mini kit because its for cloth/reusable nappy users. Most of us already have nappy pails (buckets) for soaking & wet bags for traveling. But i don’t use my nappy bucket to soak the nappies as some are all in one and not suitable for soaking so i should really have ordered the all in one kit as it comes with the mucky box. I’m using a small bucket with a not so sturdy lid to soak my wipes, not a good idea with two toddlers in the house who may kick it over.

I also didn’t think about the fact i have 3 children and live in a house with stairs! anyone with children & stairs will understand….you will be in one place ready to change a nappy but the wipes wont be….dilemma! so ideally i need a second fresh box…one for upstairs, one for downstairs…problem solved.

So i will have to make a trip back to Cheeky Wipes sooner then expected, which is fine even though i feel I’m becoming slightly obsessed as i currently view their site multiples times a day.

I opted for their bamboo wipes – firstly because bamboo is natural & so soft, we have some bamboo nappies which are so soft its tempting at times to put them on myself. Secondly because we live in a very hard water area (according to Wessex water) and they will stay soft over time.

I think my next purchase after a new fresh box & mucky boxes will be their Cheeky Mama sanitary range (pads/pantyliner kits)

Sorry for such a long review but i couldn’t miss anything out 🙂

Jackson reece baby wipes

We have been using jackson reece baby wipes for years now and i HIGHLY recommend them, we have tried and tested different brands of eco wipes including NATY & waitrose (they are so dry you might as well use toilet roll to wipe their bum).

They sell scented (they are only scented using aloe vera & organic essential oils) & unscented. We prefer scented as they smell so nice and because we found that the unscented ones were dryer than the scented packs.

Jackson reece wipes are organic and moist, i could go on and on about them but you can find all information including ingredients & stockists here

 

PitROK Crystal Roll-On Deodorant

Many people dont check the ingredients in their personal care, have a look now and see if you see the following listed – aluminium compounds, Parabens, SLS/SLES, Propylene Glycol or Silicone….those are just a few of the ingredients known to cause cancer.

Pitrok is a deodorant based on natural minerals that contains no nasty ingredients – you can read the full description & purchase here

 

NATY – nature babycare Eco breast pads

Comfortable, absorbent breast pads…. The lining is made from natural materials and helps draw milk away from the skin and into the absorbent core. The inner and outer lining is made from a natural GM free corn film and is 100% chlorine-free.

I would recommend these as i have used them for years

Current stockists –

Sainsburys, Boots, Tesco, Toys r us and Amazon

Naty – Nature baby care nappies

I have used NATY nappies with all 3 of our children, i first came across them when S was about 10 months old and i haven’t looked back. These nappies are kind to baby, kind to the environment and also very absorbent!

They are biodegradable, 100% chlorine-free and keep oil-based plastics away from baby’s skin. Absorbent pulp is from sustainably harvested Scandinavian forests and the patented center-channel means a less bulky fit while enhancing leak protection.

Yes they may be more expensive than some of the leading brands but that is for a reason, they don’t use the cheap material and chemicals which can harm your child and the environment.

My usual stockists are :

Sainsburys, Boots, Tesco and Toys r us
