Today I’m reviewing an all in two style diaper from a Canadian company called Nuggles. The diaper was designed in Kamloops, B.C. where they house their quality control and packaging center to ensure every diaper that is sold meets their standards. I love that the factory where these diapers are sewn uses certified organic bamboo and cotton yarns.
Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩ With this diaper you receive what looks like a pocket but there is a snap just inside the envelope flap on the back, and the bamboo terry inserts are safe to lay against your baby’s skin so you can snap the insert(s) in place and leave them laying on top of the diaper or you can stuff it inside the diaper like a classic pocket. While it isn’t necessary to use the snap option when stuffing this diaper, I find it a wonderful feature to help inserts stay in place no matter how much my girls scoot, crawl, roll, or flip. With a smaller and larger insert that can be used individually or snapped together you can customize absorbency and ensure a good fit.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩✩✩ At $25.95 for an all in two diaper, the price is quite reasonable for a well-made diaper, especially considering that both inserts are included. The bamboo terry is four layers thick, and incredibly strong. The colors and prints are incredibly cute, I just love the “Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute” pattern my girls are testing.
Performance ✩✩✩✩ This diaper worked very well for my girls, the bamboo terry does require more prep than less natural materials but I don’t mind being patient as it pays off with a highly absorbent result. The strong and silky TPU cover appears very durable, even after my baby army crawled across the concrete patio and scuffed up her tee the diaper still looks perfect.
Fit ✩✩✩✩ With the option to use just one of the thin bamboo terry inserts for moderate absorbency these diapers are incredibly trim! Adding the second soaker adds only a little bulk and allows me to know I can run errands without having to stare at the clock every ten minutes worrying about an outfit change. I have tried this diaper overnight and while I need to put it on right before our evening nursing session and change it as soon as she wakes, this diaper will last all night for us without leaking or leaving marks. The diaper fits well on both my girls and the crossover snaps help secure a snug fit on my toddler’s tiny frame.
Overall: I love that the wide opening at the back of the diaper allows the soakers to agitate out on their own. After rinsing I unsnap them to allow maximum movement and toss them in the wash knowing they will be cleaned. These diapers are convenient and adorable, be sure and check out the mermaid and pirate prints as well!
