Baba and Boo cloth nappy loveliness - Review





When I started my cloth journey back when Ru was a few weeks old I was pointed in the direction of  baba and boo and since then I've never looked back,

I can proudly say I have most of the B&B collection in my stash!

A couple of weeks ago Ru was sent three nappies to test out and I was thrilled to be able to pick which ones I wanted to review. 
** a happy dance was done when I received the email**

Baba and Boo nappies are pocket nappies which are a two part system. You have your inserts and then the nappy. With each nappy you are sent two microfibre inserts. You have a choice of buying more inserts if you wish. They stock a charcoal boosters which are great for heavy wetters or nighttime use! 


The nappies are fit right from birth (8lb) to potty (35lb), so they can grow as baby grows, they have poppers on the front to help adjust the size accordingly.
This is a cost cutting incentive as you'll only need to buy them once! Rather than unlike some other brands on the market where you have to buy bigger sizes once the baby has grown! 

If you are new to the cloth world they offer a trial scheme where you can purchase one nappy try it out and then if you enjoy it ... Which you will, You can go back and order more!!
They have a range of Bundle kits  to suit everyone's budget. Or you can just buy single nappies.
I found the Bundle kits really helped when I was starting out. 
They have a fantastic range of designs which I know like me you'll have a hard time picking which ones you want and end up wanting to have them all! 
The customer service is one of the best I have experienced and they are happy to answer any questions you have. 

The nappies always washed up well and I've never had a problem with stains on mine. 
I always start with a cold pre wash then on to a 40 then do an extra cold rinse.
If it's nice weather they will go out on the line, which is something I always enjoy doing. Or if the weather is being particularly British I pop them into the tumble dryer on a low heat.

When I first started cloth I thought the washing would be an issue but it really isn't. In general if you are using cloth full time you'll need around 15-20 nappies, which will mean you'll need to wash around every 3 days. 
Though the more nappies you have the longer you can go between washes. I generally wash every 3 days as the bucket can get rather pongy!!

We've tried many other brands of cloth, which we like but baba and boo is what we reach for the most. 
They're one of our favourite brands! 

You can check out their website http://www.babaandboo.com

**we were gifted the nappies in exchange for a review, all thoughts are my own!**
