ever heard of coolababy nappies - update!

Postby Cherylw » Mon Oct 13, 2008 9:30 pm

Hello,

I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of coolababy pocket nappies?

My sister is pregnant at the mo - and also wants to use pocket nappies when baby Jake arrives, and has been looking at wonderoo's and has bought a few off ebay.
I was just browsing ebay to see if i could see anything else at a good price for her and came accross quite a few for coolababy - they are a poppered BTP pocket - in several colours. The feedback seems good - and someone even quoted them as 'a poppered bumgenius' I just wondered whether to advise her to get some - as she doesn't have a lot of money for the initial outlay - and these are a really good price! (£77 for 24 & £20p&P or 48 for £156) coming from China and Macau.

Cheers,

I've never heard of them before.

TBH I'd be a bit cautious ordering that many, especially of an unknown nappy - plus if they get stopped by customs they won't be as cheap as they look.

mmm - thats what i was thinking! :?

I was wondering whether to buy a 4 pack to see how we get on with them first before i recommend them - and having a look on hm revenues and custom to see how much customs may cost!

I've also emailed a couple of people who have left feedback on ebay about 2 weeks ago - to see how they are getting on with them now! hope they reply!

Hello,

Well these nappies arrived on Wednesday, though my computer was playing up so i couldn't post an update.
They were well packaged - the seller had written gift - value $5 on the customs form. When i opened the package there was a nice little zip up bag that the nappies came in with two microfibre inserts each - 2 thin, 2 thick.

They fit Charlotte really well, looked very nicely made and lasted as well as my bumgenius - even witholding nasty weaning carrot pooh (sorry if TMI!!) They go down as small & up as large as a bum genius in both waist and rise -and i honestly have no complaints whatsoever! They have both had a couple of washes and have washed really well. The inner fleece is lovely and soft - and it is quite a slim nappy - with a good sized pocket for stuffing!

I took them round to show my sister the other day - and we compared them to her wonderoos - and She preferred them to the wonderoo's! The wonderoo's seem massive - even on the smallest setting. So she is going to go ahead and buy some of these - without customs they work out at £5 per nappy including 2 inserts! but she'll put money to one side for customs just in case.

Here are some piccies (although my camera broke so i borrowed my mums so the colours don't look as bright as they actually are! in reality they are very bright orange and purple!)
