The brilliant people at Babipur sent me two of the new nappies from Tickle Tots to try out in exchange for some photos to help with the launch. I wasn’t asked to write a blog about them, but I’m going to because I was so impressed!
Firstly, we’ve been using cloth nappies for over a year now, and have previously used 4 brands, none of which were Tickle Tots. I think Tickle Tots were on my radar and I’d seen people talk about the brand on various Facebook nappy groups, but never felt the need to try them out seeing as I was getting on okay with what I already had. Turns out, that was possibly a silly stance to take because I’ve been missing out!
The first thing I noticed about the Tickle Tots nappies was how thin they are. Compared to our other (very mainstream) cloth nappy brands, they’re practically wafer thin. I figured this would mean less absorbency, and that I would have to change the nappies more frequently, but it turns out that’s not the case at all. I have absolutely no idea how they work, but they are every bit as absorbent as other cloth nappies, but much thinner!
The thinness was the real selling point for me, as it meant that I was able to get the twinnies into clothes I had previously written off as being too small.
Other than that, I don’t have anything profound to say. As you can see, the new prints are absolutely gorgeous and I think they’re very unisex which is a bonus in a household with boy/girl twins, where I try and avoid anything gender stereotyped.
The insides are super soft which is great for babies’ bums, and after a few washes so far they are still beautifully soft.
They fasten with velcro and have an attached booster that just tucks into a pocket. Very simple to use, and quick to put together after washing.
These two new designs are available from Babipur for £15.95, and there are other designs available at sale prices too! If you’re looking for a less bulky nappy then I urge you to give these a go and see how you get on!
That’s all for now, stay safe everyone!
