Absorbancy - 9/10 - These nappies have 2 types of inserts, a microfibre pad, or an organic cotton prefold. I use both with Harrison and find that they are both very absorbant, but the organic cotton insert is probably the better of the 2.
Ease of use - 9/10 - Very easy to use, just pop your chosen insert in, then popper on your child! When change time comes, if they have done a wee, or just pooed on the insert then you can take the insert out and put a fresh one in, reusing the actual nappy which saves having to do extra washing!
Drying time - 9/10 - The microfibre inserts dry quickly, where as the cotton ones take a little extra time. Maybe 24 hours on an indoor airer, plus a quick tumble dry to soften up. Although they will dry quicker if hung outside.
Design - 8/10 - Plain colours and no prints, so they are a litte boring. They have recently bought out some different colours which are ok, but again nothing exciting. But as these nappies work so well for us I don't really mind about the colours.
Value for Money - 9/10 -A bit on the expensive side to buy to start off with, if you bought extra inserts with it, that would make it more economical.
Tots bots cotton tot (now discontinued, but you can still pick them up on some online nappy shops at a reduced price, and they are often for sale preloved)
Style - Fitted/Sized cotton nappy (needs a wrap over the top)
Absorbancy - 10/10 - Im using these nappies on Dom and they are super absorbant on him
Ease of use - 9/10 -The actual nappy itself is very easy to use, just flip the booster into the nappy, then secure onto baby. The ones I have use nappy nippas which are a bit tricky on a wriggly baby, but there are ones that have applix (velcro) to secure them with.
Drying time - 9/10 - About 24 hours on an indoor airer, or all day on the washing line. I tumble dry mine for 10 minutes afterwards as they can get a bit crunchy after drying.
Design - 5/10 Quite a boring nappy, mainly available in white or natural, although you may be able to find some coloured ones floating about. They also give Dom a huge bum as they are quite a 'fluffy' nappy!
Value for Money - Good value for money if you can get them preloved, and like I sad above a lot of websites selling them are selling them at discounted prices

8/10 Not much point when you're covering with a wrap but the fleece inner comes in some nice patterns and colours
Value for Money
Overall marks out of 10.
These nappies are made of hemp and have an attached pull out booster. The pocket style means you can add extra boosters for night time. They are quite bulky but I use them mainly at night or if we're stopping at home and they're a good way to bulk a stash as they can be found reasonably cheap. The sizing bands are quite generous as well so should fit for longer.
Hello all - I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your reviews. to start out I will be using the naughty baby nappies from ebay to see if I like cloth. I was so scared that I would be the only mum wanting to use cloth, and according to my friends and family I will regret it, but hopefully not and THANK YOU! Really!!
