Pea Pods

Post by Robin » Tue Apr 25, 2006 8:59 am

I'd really like to hear a review of Pea Pods pocket nappies. I just noticed them on the Busy Behinds website http://www.busybehinds.co.nz/ the other day. They look really good and the price is great--they come with an insert. Not many colour choices, but you can't have everything. So who has used them? Snoopy--you mentioned them and that's how I got looking into them. What do you think?

Hi

I have just purchased one of these, it looks very trim and the insert is great. Will wash it today and give it a try and let you know. THe insert is a hemp flat as opposed to the microfibre fuzzi's one so will let you know how it goes.

I love this nap it is very nice. It looks great and had been well made. My 9.5kg son fits the med on the tightest setting and i would say that will last till he is toilet trained. These are a aswome price and i would love to get another couple but do i realy need them hehe. Riley is in between sizes in fuzzis med to small large to big so i have been thinking about getting rid of them and getting these. Thats how much i love them :)

I got the large for my 10.3kg boy and they are massive, way too big. So thats a bonus, he will fit the mediums for ages. Which reminds me.........must order a medium................ :lol: :lol:

The Pea Pods run large.

My 10kg son fits the small and medium (different settings)

They come with a hemp insert and you can buy microfibre boosters.

So for less than $30 you get a pocket nappy with hemp insert plus a microfibre booster.

This has got to be the most economical pocket yet!!!!! :D

They are great for trips out. I haven't tried them overnight as I prefer fitteds.

I just got an XL today for DS- I love the look and the fit is good- no gaping even with heaps of night stuffing. It fits 19kg DS on the second from tightest snaps.
I was really pleased with the service from Busy Behinds- they kept me informed every step of the way (XL needed to be ordered in)
The nappy arrived very nicely presented in a little cotton bag that matched the colour of the nappy.
The hemp insert looks great- but DS thought it was so nice he took it to bed as a cuddly so the nappy is stuffed with a toddler prefold and a cottonbabies insert- and no gaping!
I will update in the morning with how it went :D

ETA: I love this nappy- It contains the morning explosion! It looks good, fits great and works very well :D

Laminated polyester knit is the standard PUL fabric, so yes it is what we lazily call "PUL" (not a laminated cotton print fabric which may wick) kwim?

I've seen these pockets (via Kaz), they're pretty impressive for the price.

Here's my boy in his pea pod. It's a medium, fits well in the thighs but a little loose in the waist (he does have a small waist). He's nearly 10kgs and it's on the tightest setting.

I do like them (i have two), dosn't have two lots of snaps though (like fuzzis). but great value for money.

The nappy looks smallish but is surprisingly stretchy! I think my boy may have fitted a small, but i was happy to go with the medium, just have to fatten his tum up a little...

Well this is my first pocket nappy so I don't know how qualified I am, but I love it!
I only use it overnight because we were using disposables.
I stuff it with the Hemp insert which came with it and one of our old face washers! No leaks so far and keeps her bum nice and dry, even after 12 hours!
I do put a jonsons nappy liner in it, not sure why though, I think it just habit!

Was contemplating buying another brand, but then decided when i get a few more will probably just get the Pea Pods, as I am well impressed.

They are really little so she can wiggle more and dry in no time at all.

I love em.

Got mine at the wee wuns and am also well impressed with them! Super helpful and the quikest delivery. Also the price is great

I love these too- they have converted me to pockets (before hand I couldn't see what all the fuss was about)

They have held one of DS's rather explosive poo's which IMHO is a minor miracle!!

Sizing definantly is large- my 6kg (chubby) son is on the smallest setting of size small.
