Nifty Nappy Review and Giveaway

June 18th, 2010
Nifty Nappy Review and Giveaway

Over the past few weeks I've had the opportunity to review my first cloth diapering system on The Curious Case of Mommyhood.  I came across Nifty Nappy awhile back and what caught my attention was their super cute and totally original fabric patterns.  I couldn't wait to try one of their diapers on Park!  When I got my package in the mail, I was so surprised at how soft the fabric was.  I quickly pre-washed everything so I could begin my review...

I was lucky enough to review Nifty Nappy's diaper, the Snappy Swimeaze, and the Woolie Wrap.
The Nifty Nappy Diaper:
 
Body:
Outer Layer: Cotton Knit
Sandwich Layer: Organic Hemp Knit
Inside Layer: Microfleece

Lay-in Insert:
Organic Hemp/Cotton Fleece
Organic Hemp Cotton Velour

The Nifty Nappy Diaper must be prewashed 4-5 times before it is used to ensure the manufacturer's oils are washed out and proper absorbency.  Wash the diaper in hot water with the proper cloth diapering soap and a few drops of tea tree oil to kill bacteria and preferably hang dry outside to bleach out any stains.  


The Nifty Nappy diaper has adjustable snaps to size specific to your baby.  This diaper is worn with inserts and is meant to be worn with a cover.  I suggest Nifty Nappy's Woolie Wrap.


The Nifty Nappy diaper and the Woolie Wrap work so well together.  We love this diapering system!  We love how snug it fits so you don't get the cloth diaper bulge.  We love how absorbent it is...and especially love how soft the fabric is.  (Love, love, love...:)  These are definitely a must have item for your cloth diapering system!


Nifty Nappy's Woolie Wrap:




Body:

The outside layer of the Woolie Wrap is made from upcycled wool sweaters she finds at thrift stores (how great!).


Inside:
Inside layer is made from 100% wool interlock 


The Woolie Wrap comes prelanolized so it's ready for use the minute you get it!  You will want to purchase lanolin to care for the Woolie Wrap.  They can always be hand washed and hung to dry.  It should only need to be washed and lanolized once a month unless they get soiled with baby poo, food, etc.  In that case, they need to be washed and relanolized.  Apparently, the lanolin in the Woolie Wrap turns urine into salt water.  You only need to hang dry them if they should get wet.

 


Body:
PUL waterproof layer between an inner layer of microfleece and an outer layer of cotton knit


The Snappy Swimease does not need any inserts or other layers.  The PUL layer inside should keep your little one wet free on the way to the pool.  I can attest to this first hand as in just the 5 minutes Park was wearing this diaper long enough for me to take some shots for the review, he went "number 1" AND "number 2" (always my luck;) and the diaper held everything in it as I took it off and dumped the contents into the toilet.  Very impressive!!!


The Snappy Swimease is again light, very form fitting, and also made with soft materials.  I love it so much more than his disposable swim diapers for so many reasons!  In the past, Park has always complained when we put on a disposable swim diaper.  I don't think he ever felt comfortable in them...he was always trying to take it off.  With the Snappy Swimease, he didn't make any opposition to it.  And best of all, when we are finished using it we can throw it into the washing machine INSTEAD of the diaper pail!  We have a swim diaper for life!!! 



To wash after use, you'll want to be sure you are using proper cloth diaper laundry soap, wash on hot and add a few drops of tea tree oil to help kill any bacteria.  Super easy!
WHERE TO BUY:  
Woolie Wraps ($25), cloth diapers ($22) and the Snappy Swimeaze ($15) can be purchased directly from Nifty Nappy along with all her other beautiful diapers OR visit one of her Retailers.

One lucky winner will win a $35 gift certificate to Nifty Nappy!
