My Tweedle Blue Flames Nappy has arrived! OK, so I haven't actually washed it and Josh is at pre-school so he can't try it on, but stay tuned for my review!

Yay, nappy finished drying just as I went to get Joshie. Lovely fit and 3 hours with terry flat insert and no leakage - I'm happy with that!

Just wanted to say that I'm continuing to really love this nappy, I don't think it's ever leaked!

i've been meaning to post a review - i love my 2 tweedles (a pink one and the cutest retro cowboy print - these are 2 of the nappies i show friends thinking of using cloth cuase they are so cute).

the workmanship and fit are both great for my little girl and i havent had any leaks, we use them every day or so.

also the service was very good when i bought them.

i would buy more of these.

Can anyone tell me how close in fit a medium tweedle is to a medium fuzzi?

If I can remember rightly, the Tweedle is lower in the rise and wider in the crotch.

And stuffed:

They both still fit my son on the second snap setting on each, tho he is better in larges. THe tweedles are a trimmer fit on that the fuzzis. From looking at mine the fuzzi looks wider in the crotch, and the tweedle is lower in the rise.

Lucas is about 9.5kg, not particulary long, and not chunky. I find the fit of the medium Tweedle much better than the Fuzzis (stuffed for day or night).
:D

I wish they would fit my son as i have 3 new ones but sadly they leak around the leg on the tightest waist setting , just not the right shape for his shape , lovely looking nappies though

I've been using my tweedles for maybe a week or two now, Wing droop is pretty bad, but I'm guessing that has alot to do with the fact that Seb is on the tightest settings on them - might have to put them away for a while, or use them as night nappies until he grows a bit. Considering he's about 10.8kg and the mediums go up to 11.5kg it's a bit of a pain that the large doesn't work well! Oh well - other than that I haven't had any problems with them. The cow print one I have is gorgeous, and no leaks so far (even with major wing droop going on) Over all I'd have to give them maybe a 3.5/5 and 1 4/5 when you consider the price.

My Tweedle pocket is a beautifully made nappy. I love the way you can customise - you can choose snaps or velcro, the snap colour, the fleece colour, and the outer colour!

However, like Alia, we are experiencing substantial wing droop. My daughter is also on the tightest settings, but is probably near the weight limit. Rise is fine. So despite her weight, I think we will have a lot of time left to use the nappy, which I'm very pleased about. We have had one leak out the leg which I think was a wing droop issue (looked like the leg hold gaped). I suspect that these nappies would be especially suited to babies with lovely chubby thighs.

There is a lot of room for inserts and a nice wide crotch. I find that the inserts don't shake out easily, possibly because the edge of the fleece where you put the insert in is gathered/elasticised (does that make sense?! - I'm not a sewer). However, I'm not using the Tweedle inserts, so maybe that has something to do with it. And it's a very minor point.

The price means that the Tweedle nappy is extremely good value, and a good option for those who would like to buy new but who cannot afford the pockets further up the price range.

Thanks for all the comments :D

Just wanted to point out about the 'wing droop' issue - we have tried to address this with the new design so I hope this will minimize the droop when the pocket is used on the tighest snap setting. If we find this continues to be an issue for people we plan to introduce an additional snap to the wings.
We really appreciate hearing feedback so we can continue to improve our products :D I am always happy to answer any queries/concerns that you have.
The new design looks like this:
