There's was note on the invoice, just in my rush I threw it in with the rest. Luckily it was only the microfibre inserts that the dye stuck to. Yes Karyn, the Mulberry is the culprit!

i love my one wool pocket (citrus stripe) love love love the colours and love love love the stripes and the orange inside.

love everything about the nappy except the front opening, just cause i use different sized inserts so it makes it trickier to stuff, but i manage. good fit, can stuff lots in and super cute.

I have used around 3 times now and love this nappy! Last night I used the supplied insert with just 1 Pea Pods booster, and it worked all night with no leaks! we have no feeding during the night, but 17 month old ds does hold onto his wee a bit more these days and I have noticed his nappies leaking on the odd occasion. The inserts were pretty damn wet, but he was as dry as a bone :D

Very impressed.

Kia ora
Love this nappy! After vowing to not buy anymore nappies as Poutama is almost tt (during the day), i decided we needed a couple more night naps... we got the lucky last citrus stripe. Its a perfect fit. Used it last night for the first time stuffed with the microfibre/hemp trifold insert that it came with and a trifolded hemp flat...
Prince P is now night weaned... yay, ans some mornings seems to have an almost dry nap. Still he managed to test this one well and it lasted the distance...

Yay Ecobubs :D

Finally got mine washed and dried a couple of times and tried it overnight and I seriously can't believe it's super soaking powers. Duncan is a real piddle pot overnight, and we're just accustomed to a little bit of wicking no matter how we arrange things but with his Ecobubs his pyjamas and singlet were 100% dry...woo! One of these days he might be able to wear his jammies two nights in a row :lol:

Well, add me to the Ecobubs fan club please!

I now have three pockets and I LOVE them. They are fabulous - beautifully made, well-fitting and very effective. They are so snuggly soft and scrummy! YUM!

I also cannot speak highly enough of my dealings with Becks - super friendly and helpful. she even customised our latest pocket to accommodate DD's chicken legs.

Hooray for Ecobubs!!! You're onto a winner Becks! :-)

I'm tempted to get another for Isaac for his nap times. I think he is at the stage where he is starting to hold his bladder, and often when he goes it is a flood! At least with another Ecobubs I know he'll be dry! I love the inner fabric of the nappy, it is just so beautifully soft.

Sophie's modelling the Ecobubs Wool Pocket. She's almost a year old and probably heading towards 10kg, but possibly still in the 9s.

Just want to say a huge thank you to Beck for the wonderful parcel I received this morning. Your service is out of this world & I can't stop playing with all the gorgeous nappies long enough to get them washed :D

I stuffed this with 2x ecobubs hemp & microfibre flats plus a cutiebums hemp booster, the first time I tried it he did #2s so didn't get to test it overnight, but last night he woke up in a tizz at 3am and he was soaking :(
The inserts were really soaked and it had wicked all out the front on to his pjs. Could the inserts be needing more washing in time? (only about 3 washes) or do I need to add something else - he already has a huge bubble butt!

Hi
I have found hemp takes quite a number of washes to reach full absorbancy. Our proven night combo is two hemp flats trifolded and a microfibre insert. This worked for us when Poutama was still feeding at night too although now he is night weaned :D
This combo lasts for 12 hours for him both is his Ecobubs wool pocket and other pockets. Maybe you could try a few other combos and try some hemp that has had more washes. All our hemp flats have been used for well over a year so are very absorbant...
Good luck -theres nothing worse than night leaks!

I'm gonna jump on the Ecobubs wool bandwagon!

I originally bought two - one Medium candy stripe for Z (pic in the gallery) and one Mulberry in Small, for the Baby That DH Won't Let Me Have Yet (It's a sneaky plan... but that's another story ;-) ) I washed them both (most nappies I wouldn't but I know better when playing with hemp ;-) ) and broke them in. I love the Candy Stripe - it's a great night nappy, but like others have said, it seems far too cute to be hidden away at night! But we haven't had any leaks (not that we're prone to them, but still) and I'm quite happy with it. She fits the M on the tightest setting, so heaps of growing room.

However, when I was in a pinch the other day (behind on washing) I grabbed the Small to put on her. And I'm quite impressed with it too! She's approximately 8 kilos at 8 months old, but still fits the small on the second-to-loosest setting, so we've even got some growing room in that one! But mostly, I really really love the look of this nappy on her. I'm a huge fan of low-rise naps; however with Z's build she's incredibly prone to builder's crack, so we've stayed away ;-) However the small Ecobubs wool has the "look" of a low rise nap, but we don't get any builders crack! It's instantly become one of my very favorite nappies. I'd love some more in Small but the wallet just isn't cooperating in that regards.

I trust my ecobubs wool pocket to do the job day or night. At night I just add another trifold hemp/MF insert and it does the job. Saoking inserts but dry bubba.

Thanks Becks, keep up the great work.
