YoYo Nappy - BAMBOO OSFA FITTED POCKET

Post by kb » Tue Sep 26, 2006 7:30 am

YoYo Nappy have a beautiful new nappy
It is a Bamboo OSFA Fitted Pocket, and it is beautiful!!!!

I have been lucky enough to try it out with A, and I love it :smt055

A is 7.4kg at 8 1/2months and has a little skinny tum and little skinny legs. For size comparison she is on thesmallest setting of a Medium Fuzzi, and we still have leg gapage...

Anyway, back to the YoYo

It has velcro closure, adjustable rise (snaps) and has a pocket for stuffing.

A is a very heavy wetter (in a nightpocket we normally have 2 trifolded hemp flats - 12 layers, 1 bkt booster - 2 layers, and sometimes even then we get leaks), but I have tried this with 1 trifolded hemp flat, a 2 layer MF insert and a small 10x20cm strip of bkt all stuffed into the pocket. This made an incredibly trim nightnappy which lasted 6pm-7am with 3 feeds, and still had dry parts on it!!!!

Needless to say, this firmly has a spot infront of my night pockets :smt041


As with all bamboo, it takes forever to dry ( I had it all day in the bright sunlight yesterday, but it still needed a quick blast in the dryer).

Will post a pick in the photo gallery.

Realistically this is easy a 4/5 (one point off for drying time) :D :smt023
Jan at Yoyo is selling them for about $28, but hasn't got them up on her website yet. She is taking email orders I think

Mine has taken an age to dry (no sun in Welly at the moment) but it is finally dry and will put it on her tonight and report in tomorrow.

i got one of these as a swap and tried it last night after reading you rave about them kelly... and i must say i was impressed... the back of the nappy was quite dry.. i stuffed it with a prefold and a rosies BKT booster, might see if it will take my unbleached prefold next time... and had his longies over the top... and i dont know if it was linked or not but he slept thru till 4.30 and went back to sleep with a quick shhh and backrub till 6.50. thats the best nights sleep i've had in ages. so yeah a good night nappy i'm thinking.
in the day tho i found that one side of the nappy slips down and doesnt sit that well on him, but at night when he is asleep it is fine.

Have meaning to post a review about the yoyo bamboo nap for ages....but better late than never :wink:

I cannot rate this product highly enough.

Firstly, the workwomanship is brilliant. Really well constructed.

The fit is also fab. I've had quite a few problems getting a good fit as my girl has tiny stick legs - many naps are designed for bubs with normal/chubba legs so I've had quite a few fit problems. The yoyo nappy has a beautiful fit around the legs - nice and snug.

The absorbency is also great and just keeps on getting better.

The second great thing about yoyo nappies is the service. Jan is so friendly, helpful and professional - I cannot rate her highly enough. She really goes the extra mile. I have never had such a pleasant buying experience :-)

So yeah, I love these nappies and can't wait to buy more!

Very, very, very impressed :)

I've had my YoYo Bamboo for about a week. Last night I tried it with a yoyo bamboo insert and a microfibre booster with a BSWW overtop. Joshie decided on a sleep-in this morning and after 14 hours, he had one very heavy nappy but no leaks! With the cover it did seem like a lot a velcro to deal with but this seemed to keep the nappy in place better rather than my old fluffies cover, which did a good job but the nappy seemed to fall down a bit a the front underneath that. Jan is just wonderful.

I love my 3 osfa yoyo bamboos - I usually use them with a combo of microfibre and hemp or cotton.
Since Kimmi is so small, I actually go without a cover, but sometimes I go with a soaker.
The only problem I have is how bulky they can be, but I'm sure that will come in handy later :lol:

This is my hands down favourite nappy! :smt055

It is so absorbent, soft, well made ... I could go on.

It also drys quite quickly for a bamboo nappy because of the pocket - I peg the pocket away from the rest of the nappy so it can all dry. I stuff it with the large bamboo inserts, and with a snazzis booster we get through the whole night no problems.

And Jan is just the bestest to deal with.
