I have been using this nappy for quite a few days now....Dylan wears a size 2 flexitot - he is 2.8years and approx 16kg. I boost it with 1 TotsBots bamboo booster and 1 hemp babies booster. The nappy has been lasting about 13 hours overnight on my heavy night wetter.
I love this nappy - the fit is fantastic with the multi-directional stretch, and has a good rise. It has taken me a while to find a successful night nappy - we started having leaking problems again which is why I tried the Flexitot.
The dryng time is great too - it is dry at the same time as my pockets which is great! Big :smt023 here - I love it! :smt050

I'm really digging ours too :D Dries incredibly quickly, and seems comfy. And there isn't a lot of wicking through the cover - you could go without a cover for an hour or so without a problem (IME). A light wool cover would suffice!

I really like it - 9/10 (the only thing is that I'd like a different colour than white!)

This is a seriously good nappy. I have to say I was skeptical at first, because I prefer pocket nappies and prefer them to be quick drying, but this nappy is quick to dry and fits so well and is wonderfully trim and incredibly absorbent and though they don't recommend it, seems to work without a cover! The bamboo lining is incredibly plush and I can't believe how absorbent the nappy is for one so trim. It has only been through the wash a few times so far so I have yet to try it overnight.

Although I prefer snaps to velcro, the velcro does have the advantage of giving a really good fit, because you're not limited to the position and number of snaps available. Plus it's very easy to pop on for carers and dads who can never remember which snap setting to use.

I want more!

A friend due in Jan is looking at getting some tots from Nappy Days...think they're gonna use sposies for the first month or so but after that would the flexitot work? Noticed the ad on Nappy Days says they look just like a sposie which IMO isn't a selling point for me but hey, are they still cute?! :lol: I didn't notice the website saying if it was just a fitted or an AIO so assuming from your reviews it's a fitted?

Interesting, thanks for the info! I'll keep this in mind, we use Bamboozles for night now, but he may outgrow them between now and night dryness. Love the Tots Bots range.

Does anyone have a Flexi-Tot with the new bamboo? Wow! I saw & felt one at the Parent & Child Show, it's so soft!

I've got a flexi tot with bamboo, it's my current fav on mr 5months. sz1.
I've never really been into fitteds before. But this one is fantastic...
It's super absorbent and super easy to use. I love the fabrics in both the nappy and the wrap.
I've been especially amazed and how perfectly white they come up. It seems to be Dylans most preferred nappy to do explosions in and it washes up mint every time.
Incredible fabrics, nice and breathable. I'll certainly be getting more. :D

I had to sell my bitti boos as we were finding them a little too short in the rise unfortunatly, so I have gone back to using flexi tots, I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I only use them at night because Lily is day TT'd now. I boost them with one tots bots bamboo booster folded in half at the front, and cover with bummis whisper pants ( Iwish these came in poly prints :( ) but that combo is brilliant :D

Hi, what are Flexitots made out of exactly? I'm not a fan of microfibre as it smells and doesn't hold the liquid sometimes. I'm looking for a better drying nappy as I like my snazzipants but they aren't drying outside after a day in the sun at the moment, and I prefer to still try to dry outside in winter for the hygiene and deodorising.

I've previously used Joel-eze but she doesn't have the ones with the fabric I like now, and they don't last so well and can't go in the dryer on hot. Could Flexitots go in a dryer on hot? I've got an ancient Fisher n Paykel drier so I dry snazzipants on hot as I figure it's probably not that hot really, but I think I'll killed elastic on others doing this.

I've been using the more recent edition Flexitot, with the microfleece layer and attached microfibre layer for folding in the pocket for absorbtion.

I *love* the fit. Am using a size 1 on the smallest dome setting on miss tiny 9 month old, 6.4kg, and there is a lot of room to spare, but the leg bindings fit nicely with no leakage and no red marks. The aplix is almost doubled over, so I doubt this nap could be used on a NB unless it was an extremely chunky one.

I've been using the Flexitot with a bummis super whisper wrap. It has not leaked, however has been saturated in a matter of 2 hours. By adding in a hemp booster to that handy wee pocket it stretches to 3 hours on miss very heavy wetter.

My only irritation was two of the naps have had stains that have remained after #2's. They have lightened after sun exposure, but not enough for my liking.

Hi, thanks for your comments. I did buy a flexitot, thankfully just one. Big ticks for fast drying. Big ticks for flexible fabric to get a good fit, and good aplix and cut. But since the actual nappy fabric isn't really absorbant, they leak like a pocket nappy on my heavy front (boy) wetters, without the all-around absorbancy which they need at front and around the back, not just where the insert is.

I was looking at buying the bamboozles for sleeping but think I'll just stick with what I've got unless my second boy turns out to be as slow at being night-dry as my big boy.

Hi Berrybaby, you will find that any synthetic will stain more than natural fabrics (ie hemp and cotton) - but they do dry faster, so that's the trade-off.

I now routinely stuff the pocket with a hemp or bamboo doubtler, folded up front for miss pee-a-lot. It now lasts 3 hours, which I'm happy with, but I certainly wouldn't expect it to go further. There is more room in the pocket, and fit, so I could stuff more for night time etc.

I have to say though, these dry faster than my prefolds, and only just slightly slower than my old style flats. I do love that :)

sunlovinmum: I don't find the bamboozles particularly brilliant compared to the flexi with a doubler. I still end up adding an insert to stretch out the time with the bamboozle. I don't consider it a winner absorbency wise for little miss.
