I first tried charlie bananas nappies when Isla was first born, the patterns on the newborn nappies were so cute I couldn’t resist them.
As Isla outgrew the newborn nappies at around 5 weeks I started using the CBs one sizes.
In a nutshell here they are
one size nappy and 2 reusable inserts is what you get when you order one
What makes CBs different to most nappies out there is the way their leg gussets sizes are adjusted.
Instead of the most commom rise snaps CBs use a bra strip to adjust the size which offers brilliant versatility and more precision on fitting them around your baby’s thighs. It adjusts well not only as your baby grows , but also as they change shapes through the first few years . It also is wonderful for those with multiple children in cloth as you can adjust the fit perfectly to suit each child – if you have the time to do it.
Turn nappy inside out and you will find the bra like straps on each side of the nappy
Absorption wise, from about 3 months you will definitely need both inserts. For us the 2 together last really well and overall I rate CBs highly , especially for those with leg leaks issue using other brands.
In the interest of softness and cuteness I couldn’t not mention their lovely organic cotton changing pad
You can buy charlie banana products straight from their EU website and the nappy lady website
