A couple of weeks ago you may have seen me post this video on instagram showcasing four new prints from Bambino Mio (I’ve popped it at the end of this post too!) The four new nappy prints are awesome! I think my favourite is Circus Time though even the little popcorn containers have ‘BM’ on them! The all in one nappies are designed to take your baby from birth to potty with the poppers at the front letting to adjust the fit. Velcro tabs at the waist enable you to adjust the waist and leg holes, and the super absorbent core tucks inside the nappy and can be pulled out easily with the pull out tab for washing. Booster pads are available separately to create extra absorbency for overnight or heavy wetters. Plus as a pure design factor I love that the velcro tabs are colour coordinated with the prints!
Bambino Mio got in touch with me to see if we would like to try the overnight challenge using the Mio Solo All in One nappies, and I accepted! I think Athena has only ever slept in a cloth nappy overnight about twice, with a leak the second time hence me giving it up. In a bid to save both money and landfill waste I would love to be able to use cloth on her 24/7 now I’ve started maternity leave as she wears disposables at Nursery, on days my mum has her and overnight.
So after pre washing the four super snazzy new prints I thought we’d see how we got on overnight, with the addition of a Mio Solo booster in each nappy. Athena sleeps from 7pm to 7 or 8am each night so at least 12 hours. She also has a bottle of water in her cot overnight sometimes hardly touching it and other nights finishing it all, so she can be quite soggy in the mornings by the time she wakes up.
With some trepidation I got her ready for bed with boosted nappy on, with the addition of a fleece liner as I find they don’t get as creased up and potentially uncomfortable. The first night we tried she slept through as normal! Hurrah! The nappy although fairly full in the morning had left her almost dry to the touch. I was impressed, and most nights since then she’s been in a boosted Bambino Mio! Now I am on maternity leave I will have the energy and time to ensure we can get a cloth wash done every 2 days, and she can hopefully remain cloth bummed as much as possible until we start potty training at some point this year hopefully!
