B'bies brand?

Postby usinukveg » Tue Jan 12, 2016 10:48 am

Hey :wave: A french friend has been asking me lots of questions about washable nappies, and has now decided they're going to go for it! Great news. She seems pretty sold on AIO (TE1 in france). Not my personal choice as I live in damp cold England, but she says things seem to dry pretty quickly in her flat. She found a good deal on some bamboo aios, but I've never heard of the brand b'bies. Anyone know anything? Especially any frenchies? Here's the link if you want to practice your french: http://www.bientot-maman.fr/les-packs/1 ... bou.html#/ @clothmama?

I've never heard of them either so just read some reviews on French consumer sites and they seem fairly positive :D (just the usual problems you get with any AIOs) but like I'd say to anyone always an issue getting a nappy that may not suit your babies shape in bulk! The deal is only for 10 (unless she intended getting more which isn't the greatest idea!) and I'd guess she can sell them on if they don't work for her baby.

The look good and the deal seems great, but I'd echo Tory in that I'd not buy in bulk until I know that they work for your friend.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the separate binding on the edges as I found for us that is what caused rubbing and frayed more easily, but that could just have been us.

Thanks so much guys! In the end she's gone down the order several different kinds routes rather than the bulk buy (I did try to steer her down that path early on, but sometimes you have to read it yourself!) And it turns out that her sister is living in Liverpool, so can order some nappies from the uk and post them to her in France.

@clothmama or any other france-based people, if you have an suggestions of good, not too expensive french brands, let me know and I'll pass on the info.

I actually haven't tried any, I probably should! I had so many left from Louis and gifted that I've not really had to buy that many, I might sell some on to try some new ones! You should ask her to come and review them when she tries them (we can translate it for her if she doesnt' speak English!).
