Review: Why I chose Candies All In Two nappies for my baby

If you’re new to Bubblebubs products, you might be wondering what makes our Candies All In Two nappies different from all the other cloth nappy options out there. 

Meet Cristen, a mum of a gorgeous 8 month old boy from Wellington and amazing Bubblebubs customer. Keep reading to hear what made her choose Candies cloth nappies for her little one:

"Filling the bin multiple times a week with disposables just didn’t feel right so once my bubba was around 5 months and I was feeling I was coming out of that first-time mum fog a bit, I decided to make the switch to cloth. I purchased a handful of inexpensive nappies and tried out some various styles that my friends loaned me.

My little guy was a milk monster (he still eats and drinks a tonne!), but he was also long and skinny. Both of these factors made it challenging to find a nappy that fit well and could keep his clothes dry. I was changing him every 60-90 minutes and was still struggling with leaks. The inserts in his nappies would be mostly dry, but he was consistently leaking out the legs. As a new mum, I had plenty of things on and didn’t have time for all of this. A good friend who is quite the MCN guru, suggested I try Candies because she had heard great things about them.

I initially just purchased a few to try out. I was immediately taken by how easy it was to get a good fit on him and by how thirsty they are. Trying to put a nappy on my wiggly little guy sometimes feels like trying to wrestle an alligator, so the simplicity of the side snap closure works amazingly well for us. His dad fumbled with the other nappies, but also fell in love with how easy the Candies are to get on. The awesome fit of the leg elastics and the ability to use a different snap for tummy and legs (if need be) meant we could find the perfect fit and get it on him quickly. Our leaky nappy problems also disappeared.

I decided to go all-in on Candies, so once I built up my stash and had enough for everyday use, I realized a few other perks. The wash routine is super simple and they’re definitely easy to clean up. I love that with an all-in-two (Ai2) I can choose between using the line or the dryer for the inserts - and the shells dry in no time.

Unlike a pocket nappy, once the Candies are clean preparing them for use is SO easy! A quick fold of the insert, a snap, and they’re good to go. And let’s be real, after chasing a little one around all day I don’t have time to fuss with too much more than that.

My bubba has recently made the transition to solids and has started to put on weight (he is in the 100th percentile for height and 9.2kg at 8-months). His Candies fit just as well as they did when he was a wee little guy (pun intended). Instead of needing a variety of nappy styles and fits as he grows and his body changes, I’ve been able to switch up which leg and tummy snaps we’re using and how we’re folding the insert. I love the flexibility the Candies provide.

I realize the adorable limited edition patterns do not have any impact on the fit and function of the nappy, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say that the cuteness of the Candies definitely helped me come around. The slim fit, even when boosted, doesn’t hurt either. We never leave the house without a Candie on."
