Detailed Comments:
Well, where do i start? This company is excellent. Amber and Fiona are very friendly and always reply quickly to any queries. They will add more snaps to tighten the waist if necessary or anything you request for a well fitting nappy on your little one!

My fitted day nappy was bought preloved but i have bought many pocket nappies and night nappies from Upsy Daisy - we just love them so much!

Positives
The nappy is very squishy and the fitted we have is minkee lined so its the ultimate luxury on my little girls bottom and its also a stay dry fabric, meaning her bum is dry when we take it off! We have soy as our absorbent fabric and i have to say, it works a treat! It doesnt go hard like hemp can and stays lovely and soft, whereas bamboo can loose its pile a bit over time! We have side snaps as we prefer these (well I do, DP finds aplix much easier - we have 2 aplix night nappies for this reason!).

The nappy is very giving and gives a lovely fit everytime! Never a leg gape, never a leak even now DD is rolling and bum shuffling all over the place! It washes well, the insert(s) snap out for faster drying and ensuring a good clean in the wash! And last but not least, the price, very well priced considering they are custom and hand made by british wahms! no airmiles here!!!

Negatives
Not really a bad thing about them really. Perhaps the inner side of the pocket takes a wee bit longer to dry but i just turn the nappy inside out after the outer is dry and it dries no problem then!

Overall: Fab looking, reliable, well fitting, affordable fitted nappy that will be a firm favourite in our stash!
