Nappy trial – Tots Bots Flexitot v2

Why did I want to trial this nappy?

I used the original version with Tilly – I really wanted to see how the nappies had evolved and whether some of the issues I had with the previous version had been resolved by the redesign.

Which options did I choose?

We trialled the size 2 nappy.

Where was it bought from?

I bought the nappy from Kittykins – I’ve used them many times in the past and delivery was free.

First impressions

I love brand new bamboo nappies – they’re so soft and lovely. It came with an additional bamboo booster which was nice as in theory it could be used as a night-time nappy. Of course bamboo does mean a longer drying time so a bit of a wait between the initial wash and first use.

First trial

I popped him in the nappy in the morning paired with a Flexiwrap. The nappy itself is lovely and soft and flexible and Eli seemed quite comfortable. It’s much like the Easyfit with regard to bulkiness but the wrap on top does add a little more.

After a month

I definitely prefer this version of the Flexitot to the version we used with Tilly – much hardier bamboo (although not using vinegar in the wash has probably helped this time, the last lot rotted a lot but I didn’t know any better) and quicker drying with the fold out core.

Final analysis

I still like the Flexitot but much prefer (especially with the way Eli complains about nappy changes) all in one nappies to two parters. The Flexitot does have quite a few strengths if you’re looking for a two-part nappy:

  • not too bulky (especially with the Flexiwrap);
  • if necessary it could be boosted for night use;
  • quick drying;
  • poppers to adjust the rise (another bonus over the previous version);
  • good containment.

Would I buy more?

Probably not but only because I do prefer the all in one nappies I have – I really appreciate only having one set of tabs/poppers to do up whilst Eli writhes and screams!

Fluffy post

I had a couple of fluffy parcels drop through the door a couple of days ago – I’m looking forward to trialling my new nappies and wrap (thanks to R enabling my nappy addiction by suggesting that I buy a few more to trial). I’ve now got a:

  • Blueberry Coverall wrap
  • Tots Bots Flexitot
  • Close Parent New Generation Bamboo Pop-In

I’ve already used the wrap once and am hoping that after their pre-washes the two nappies will be ready to go today (bamboo can take ages to dry sometimes). It’s probably not great for my bank balance that I’m already planning what I want to buy next from my wishlist
