Baba+Boo was created in November 2009 after mum of two, Eve Bell realised she was always looking for unusual and quirky clothing and accessories for her children, but most of the items she liked were really expensive.
Baba+Boo sell a range of reusable nappies, swim nappies, T-shirts, shoes and a few other pieces too. We were lucky to have been sent two reusable nappy gift sets to review. Plus we are giving you the chance to win one of these gorgeous gift sets as well. Read on to find out more!
We were sent one Little Miss Rabbit Nappy + T-shirt Gift Set and one Miss Hedgehog Nappy + T-shirt Gift Set. Both of these cost just £19.95 each plus postage and packaing, making them really affordable.
I’ve always loved the idea of reusable nappies, but it’s never been something that I have got around to trying. For me personally the main benefit that I saw by using resuable nappies is the cost. With two babies the cost of buying disposable nappies soon adds up.
Then there is the environmental impact that comes with using disposable nappies. Did you know each nappy can take more than 200 years to naturally degrade causing a serious problem to the environment. Plus each child can go through around 4,000 nappies before they are potty trained. That’s alot of nappies!
When our parcel arrived I was so excited! I really hoped I would like the nappies and be converted to using them!

The first thing I noticed when taking the nappies out of the packaging were how soft they were! Now and again, M can get nappy rash especially when teething and quite often disposable nappies will rub at the rash making it worse. I can’t see that happening at all with these nappies.
I love the cute designs and I have to say the Rabbit design is my favourite! In the summer, I would often put a pair of pink, frilly knickers over the girls nappies if they were wearing dresses to hide the disposable nappies they were wearing. With the Baba+Boo nappies you don’t need to do this because they look fab!
Before I continue with this post, I have to admit that I was a bit bewildered when I first looked the nappies because I didn’t have a clue how to use them! I’m so glad Eve was to hand to help explain to me how to use them!
Each nappy comes with two liners.
You basically think of these nappies in the exactly the same way as you would a disposable one. This means that you still need to the nappy just as much.
The liners (or inserts) go in the pocket at the back of the nappy and that is where all the wetness is stored. Eve advised me that unless your little one poops, you should get about four hours use with two inserts.
There are nine poppers on the front of the nappy in a square and this is how you adjust the size. Eve sent me this useful video to demonstrate how to put the nappy on your baby.
The nappies don’t restrict movement, meaning both girls can easily stretch up or kneel, crawl and bend etc.
