Drybees

Post by FluffyMail » Thu Aug 03, 2006 3:57 pm

I am a retailer of Drybees nappies and just wondered if anyone else has tried these and what they think of them? I'd love to hear some feedback :D

I have been trialling one for a short time on ds, and so far it is working really well. The suedecloth is lovely and soft, and there is an elasticated pocket at the top so keeps the insert in place without popping out.

The sizings run very large .. my 10kg baby is at the outer limit for Medium size but the Larges are HUGE so he will be in it for a bit longer yet .. I would think 11.5-12kg.

Dh LOVES this nap because of the aplix closures and with big fumbly hands is easy to put on.

I think they are quite good! would love to hear some more feedback on this nappy.

I have just purchased one drybee, has only been used once. But on first appearance, looks lovely. Really nice bright colours. Interestingly pretty good quality suedecloth lining. I thought the workmanship pretty average, but thats being pretty picky.
Sizing wise, I purchased the medium for my 7.5kg 3month old. But when it arrived it looked enormous. In fact it fitted on smallest settings on my year old 14kgs. Go figure? Pretty big sizing alright.
I was worried at first that the suedecloth would leak through to my sons clothes as it folds back in the crotch area. Other pockets without outside seems similar to this tend to do that with my boy. But this one did not.
I did tend to always roll outwards (the lining), even with a pretty good effort by myself to keep it contained. A nice fit overall, but definately large sizing.

I believe they are designed to do this - similar to the Heinys .. so that they are soft against bubs legs and don't leave red marks. If you try stuffing them in they will probably come back out again :lol:

I received my fluffy mail yesterday with 4 x small for baby & 1 x med which when I saw it thought that it would definitely fit Maia even though she is 12kg. So, without washing because I'm just too impatient :wink: I stuffed it & popped it on her & it fits!!! :smt041

She had it on for about 2 hours & did a #2 in it :roll: so just waiting for it to be washed so I can try it again. DH loves the velcro (which most men do!) Will add more later once we've tried it out a bit more but I'm definitely glad I didn't get a large size one just yet.

I got one of these and really like it. have had it for over a month and no leaks yet. :smt041
haven't tried them overnight yet though
my 5 month old - 8 1/2 kg baby fits the medium just fine. got a large stashed away too, but don't think that'll fit just yet, but had to get one at the rosies sale :D
Aren't they made by the same people as swaddlebees. Anyways, this one is way better than the swaddlebee in my humble opinion. :wink:

Drybees and Swaddlebees made by different companies :) Funny how alot of the nappy names are similar.

I think I saw a brand name in the US called Fuzzy Fannies! ..lol. I know that is a bottom over there and not what we refer to as the same thing but imagine selling these in NZ!

i have a medium for zach and it fits him well, only problem is the stitching has come undone at the back exposing the elastic, and i'm not a sewer. happened not long after i got it, so i haven't used it much.

it does seem roomy and zach is skinny so the medium fits him done right up the tightest so it should fit him for a while

I have one Drybees and i'm pretty happy with it overall. Mine's a medium and is really lovely soft material. I thought Dry and Swaddlebees were made by the same people too... the material in both is the same as far as I can tell and I have them in the same colour too! The Drybees has been lovely, but it did leak overnight last night with lots of stuffing in it (hemp + 2 microfibre inserts) but probably cos inserts were sopping. I obviously have a heavy wetter, although that was after 12 hours. Overall i'm pretty happy with the Drybees, but it's not my favourite. The fleece tends to roll out on one side more than the other which is a bit odd, but that hasn't caused any problems, just looks a bit crooked!!

I really like the drybees on Max. He's quite a 'big' boy and these look like they are really comfy on him. I like the way the fleece sits on his thighs around his tum as we often find naps dig into his fat rolls but not these ones!
This is also the nap I leave out if someone new needs to change him as they are soooooo easy to put on!

Gotta agree with Rachel above. My stitching at the back has come undone too and that was only a few weeks after I got them. That's the only negative from me though. Why oh why does it do that?? :rant:
But am pretty happy with them otherwise. :dancin:

Hi all, I have one large pink one that I got when Rosie was closing down. I use it at night only because it is really big but does mean we can stuff it with heaps. I find it wicks only when Lily is wearing a dome under the bottom singlet, I also use a wool cover at night but I do that with everything as a back up. The stitching did come undone at the back, which I got a friend to fix. I am sure it is going to get better and fit better as Lily gets bigger...I am not sure how much she ways at the moment, maybe 12kg

I think the dry bees are great - I am on the hunt for some more!

I use them on my 5month old and have around 5 of them (have been using the small size since he was around 2months). At the moment we are using the smalls and mediums.

They are really easy to stuff because of the wide crotch and no leaks down the leg for the same reason - seem to catch most things!! Mine have washed really well - no pilling or problems with the stitching coming undone (good quality fleece compared to the swaddlebees which I also use). I also like both the pocket edges with the elastic to keep all the stuffing in.

They are large sizes so although I am using the large size in the swaddlebee (and medium rosies, medium pikobaby) the small size for the drybee is still a good fit.

On the minus side, the nappy is quite wide and can be more difficult to put trousers over than the swaddlebee (which is one of the trimmist nappies I have found).
