Reliability: 10/10
Absorbancy: 8/10
Cuteness: 9/10
Drying Speed: 8/10
Slimness: 9/10
Value for money: 10/10

Overall: Recommended

these were the first fitteds we used and are still among my faves - reliable and fluffy and reasonably quick drying
easy to pop on when wriggly babes would rather be elsewhere than having a nappy put on!! ok so they do quickly get weed out but can be boosted and as for cuteness i think fluffy white bottoms are lovely!!!! and they need a wrap or wooly anyway!
all in all definately recommended

Detailed Comments:

The organic cotton little lamb has a microfiber core and a folder out insert for quicker drying. They come with a beautifully soft and fluffy microfleece liner to keep the moisture away from baby’s skin and you just know it’ll feel nice for them too.
This nappy is really soft and cuddly and feels thick but not particularly pretty, this does mean it’s quite a bulky nappy. It does fit extremely well and contains poo well on its own, meaning you could get away with fewer wraps.
For absorbency I’d put it between microfiber and bamboo, Esmé comfortably lasts 2 hours in the morning with this which is similar to pocket nappies.
I’ve given is 10/10 for reliability as it does contain poo well so is as reliable as a fitted can be but obviously overall reliability depends almost entirely on your choice of wrap.
The integral insert large Velcro tabs make it easy to use. This also dries surprisingly quickly despite its bulk, again for this I’d put it as the happy medium between quick drying but less absorbent microfiber and super absorbent but slow to dry bamboo.
The only thing that could make this easier as a two-part system would be if the fleece liner was also sewn in, it would prevent the inevitable question ‘does this one need a liner?’ from my husband.
At £9 per nappy they’re on par with other fitted nappies on the market and make a great work horse nappy.
