It’s Best Attributes

If you have a preemie or a small baby whose primary needs are a customised fit, comfort, absorbency and dryness, then the TotsBots Bamboozles Night Nappy is an option you may want to consider.

Designed to last for up to 12 hours, it can hold up to between 575 – 855 mls of water.

It is described by a satisfied mum as one that “wash well”, “bulletproof” and “great”.

It’s ecofriendly, easy to use, chemical free and of an award-winning quality,Oekotex certified, according to the manufacturers.

It is suitable from newborn to potty training as it comes in three size options.

Size 1 is for babies who weigh between 6-18lbs (2.7- 8.2kg) suitable for smaller babies, preemies, and twins.

Size 2 is for babies who weigh between 8-35lb (3.6- 16kg) suitable for birth to potty.

Size 3 is ideal for toddlers, and for babies who weigh 35lb (16kg) and above.

The nappy’s poppers in the rise and Velcro closures are adjustable to accommodate your baby’s growing needs, and to provide a customised snug fit.

The TotsBots Bamboozle nappy requires prepping.  You are to wash once before first use.

However, you have to have washed it for up to about eight times for it to attain its highest level of absorbency.

The Pros And Cons Of The TotsBots Bamboozles Night Nappy

Pros

It’s Absorbent

The bamboo material is a very thirsty material and is excellent for overnight use and for heavy wetters.

It’s Manageable

It’s easy and convenient to use which makes it suitable for the creche and child minder. It also washes well.

It’s comfortable and provides the snug fit.

It doesn’t leave any baby out – preemies, small babies, newborns to toddlers. It has a size for every baby.

It has well enforced elastic around the legs to help with containment.

It Stays Dry

It has a stay dry buffer zone which keeps the pee locked down in the core of the nappy.

It’s Economical

The size two is a very popular choice, making it a very economical nappy as it can be used for the entire diapering phase of your baby.

It’s Durable

Because you aren’t restricted to only one size, you can spread the wear and tear between the three sizes making the nappies more durable.

A Foldable Velcro Closure

The Velcro tabs can be folded in before washing in the machine to prevent it from catching on other items.

Cons

It Takes To Long To Dry

Its greatest asset appears to be its worst nightmare, bamboo

Bamboo, although very absorbent, is very slow to dry. It takes up to 12 hours to dry naturally, making it a no brainer for busy mums.

It’s Bulky And Bulgy

There were complaints that the nappy was very soggy and bulky when wet and bulges under clothes.

Durability Issues

The Velcro wears out quickly over time due to frequent washing.

Sizing Issues

Despite the fact that it’s a roomy diaper, a great deal of mums complained about the sizing.

Leaky Issues

Some mums experienced containment issues such as leaks around the edges especially with runny poo.

Helpful Tips

Be careful to follow the fabric care instructions to avoid any damage to the nappy as well as the waterproof wrap.

If you must tumble dry, ensure that the dryer is on low heat as bamboo is a very delicate material and can’t withstand heat.

If you dry out in the sun, pull out the insides of the nappy to hang down, this will make the nappy dry quicker.

You can attach a hemp booster to the nappy to achieve more absorbency.

You can also place a trifold hemp prefold nappy (size two) between the nappy and the Peenut wrap to help prevent leaks.

To help protect the nappy from poo stains use the TotsBots disposable biodegradable liner, only remember that it should be binned and not flushed.  Just shake the poo into the toilet and flush as usual.

Conclusion

I really like this nappy because it didn’t compromise on fit, absorbency, quality, and moisture control.

Many mums say they are happy with the brand and would recommend it to others.

There was the odd complaint about the elastic being of poor quality so be careful not to soak nappy in very hot water.

I would recommend this nappy to a friend.
