Talk to me about charlie bananas

Postby cuppachaplz » Mon Mar 23, 2015 8:54 am

Paul was very anti cloth when we first had percy. Whilst now converted, he won't touch my tie-ons at all, and definitely as case of the simpler the better as far as nappies go.
For this reason, I bought a few cheapie pockets.
For the most part they seem fine, but we do very quickly get leaks, which I think is largelyo do with Percy's sparrow legs. I was wondering if charlie bananas might work for us due to the adjustable legs. Any experiences/thoughts anyone?
Is anyone selling any for us to try.

Hi @cuppachaplz. Like I said in the review I really like Charlie bananas but I do swap the microfibre inserts for bamboo and hemp for my LO but little Percy might be just fine with the small microfibre insert that comes with it.
One of my friends has some cb that she was thinking of selling so I'll ask her if she still wants to and will let you know (maybe she will come join us on the tree :) )

Thanks @dancingmum :)
I'm just trying to find an easy nappy (for DH) that won't leak around Percy's skinny thighs.
I'd read your review, and was hoping that thus might be a solution.

My friend baby was TINY and the cb fit his skinny legs from about 5 weeks (looked massive but then everything did!). At 19 months they are still her DH nappy of choice, very easy. My DH really like them too :thumbsup:
