Ok, I am going to give a confesion. For over 17 years, we used disposables. For 11 of those, we used pampers. With the birth last year of DD, now 1, we put her staright into Pampers. She stayed in Pampers until aged 11 months, when we came across a VERY disturbing report on independant laboratory...

“Wee Wee Wee All The Way Home”

published 21/06/2002

Do save money in the long run

A bit bulkier than disposables

In my ongoing efforts to potty train my third child I`ve decided to stop buying disposable nappies and invest in kooshies reusable nappies. Although this is more environmentally friendly, this is not my reason for using these nappies. Because my daughter is now potty trained in the house day and...

I must admit, I would never have thought about using washable nappies if it wasn't for a small co-incidence. When I was pregnant, I met up with an old schoolfriend who I had lost touch with years ago. She was also pregnant, and being the earthy type would have considered nothing less. She asked...

We were looking to cut household bills when I was pregnant and Kushies looked like a good solution. Having battled through the minefield of so many reusable nappies on the market. We initially bought Kushies Ultra, the idea is that they are "just like a disposable". They are certainly very easy...

I had decided to use re-usable nappies with my first born before she arrived. Kooshies Basics were the only ones I could track down in my area, so I went for those. I figured the environmental benefits and long term cost saving over disposable nappies were worthwhile. I bought the 5-pack for £20...

semi high initial cost

I started my little girl on the Kooshies All in One Ultra Nappies when she was about 4 weeks old. Even though she was under the starting weight to use them, they have worked out better than I had ever imagined. To start, they are an all in one nappy which is great at changing time. I don't have...

“they are ok for skinny babes”

go on like a disposable, saving the environment.

tend to leak at night

I have switched to cloth nappies with my 3rd child who is 6 weeks old. I bought some kooshie ultras to use when I am at work or days out.They seemed to come recommended in the parenting magazines. I find they are fine during the day as I change my baby after every feed(2hourly) but he goes 5...

Can be leaky, take a while to dry

I bought my first Kooshies Ultra all-in-one nappy about 3 years ago when I found one reduced to about £4 in Sainsburys. It was white with multicoloured swirls on it suitable for a boy or girl in size 22-45lbs. The style is similar to a disposable - just velcro it up and away you go (although not...

“Cloth or disposable”

published 18/08/2001

Washable, soft, hard wearing

Leak, buckets of smelly nappies everywhere

Before my daughter was born, I spent a fortune buying 10 Classic Kooshie nappies and all the extras. This was because my best friend had used them for her daughter and spoke very highly of them. When my daughter was born, she was so tiny that she did not fit into the nappies for the first 3...

You actually have to wash them!

Disposable nappies, very convenient and expensive, and not very eco friendly. You can get an alternative made from a natural product, which is very comfortable. Kooshies do a nappy which is 100% pure cotton flannelette, and there are two types, basic, which needs a waterproof outer wrap, and...

nice looking, well fitted, easy to look after

still leak, may cause a nappy rush

Re-usable nappies were our first choice. So when we saw two pack of new Kooshies for £5 each (£10 for 10 nappies !) in a second hand baby shop we were over moon. Grabbed the bargain and run away before the seller has changed her mind. I think if you bought them for full retail price they will...

Initial outlay, drying

Ive tried disposables and the usual terry nappies. For the first baby, I struggled on out of respect for the environment, often sticking pins in myself, and suffering through a baby who made crunchy noises when cuddled due to the plastic pants that go over the top. Not pleasant. With baby no 2, I...

“Kooshies or Leakies?”

published 02/06/2004

Environmentally friendly and very cosy looking

Leaky and less absorbent that they appear

I was really excited about buying these nappies. My first baby was 13 years ago, and I was on a very low income. I could only afford the outlay to purchase disposable nappies. The environmental waste was something I never felt good about, and so during my recent pregnancy I saved and bought...

“Good value for money”

published 13/06/2003

Environmentaly good & adaptable

Not breathable

I bought the Kooshies prefold nappies and wraps for my son, and have been using them since he was born. Overall I have been pleased with them. The prefolds are not too fiddly to put together with a newborn and with a little practice, are fairly leak proof. The wraps wash well at 40, and my son is...

Easy to Use

Long time to dry

Kooshies/Kushies Ultra nappies are the closest to disposables as you are going to get. They are an All In One (AIO) nappy designed by some very clever Canadian people. The nappy itself consists of a waterproof yet breathable PUL (Poly something, basically waterproof and breathable plastic) layer...
