Great value, great absorbency and pretty designs
Wednesday, 26 February 2020 | Angela
Over the past few weeks I have been using the beautiful mermaid print bubblebubs candie all in two nappy.†
I prewashed it twice before using it and have used it four times since, washing it in between uses.†
What I have loved†
So far my favourite element of the bubblebubs candies have been the design (yes Iím a sucker for pretty nappy prints!), the absorbency, the all in two method and the ease of folding and popping in the insert. I also love that it is amazing value as well in terms of finances.†
All of the prints are pretty impressive. Style wise bubblebubs looks amazing: I love the look of the side poppers too from both the front and back of the nappy.
Fit wise round the thighs the side poppers get a really good seal in the knicker line which is great for preventing leaks. I like that the side poppers will come in useful when we begin toilet training as they look similar to a pull up and will be easy to snap on when she is independently standing up and using the toilet - I can see the benefits of only undoing one side of poppers, pulling the nappy down then pulling back up and doing only one side of poppers up when we reach that stage.†
The inserts are made of bamboo and I have found the nappy very absorbent. Iíve only used the booster once to try it out. Unboosted we managed four hours without any leaks which is great - itís slightly less absorbent than a wizard uno but about the same absorbency as a blueberry simplex or smart bottoms.
With the trifold in this nappy is about the same thickness of a baba and boo nappy so itís fairly bulky, not as skinny as a little lambs pocket, blueberry or wizard uno. With the booster in we got just under six hours out of the nappy with no leaks which was fantastic but I did find the nappy too bulky for us with the booster in. It could potentially be used at night if you have a baby that doesnít wake for feeds overnight and is a light wetter overnight as an option.
Value for money wise this is a brilliant system. You would most likely need 6-8 shells for an average baby rotating 1/2 a day and changing the inserts each nappy change (as long as there arenít any poos). Then you buy more trifold snap in inserts. Because the trifold already has great absorbency you wouldnít need many boosters unless you were planning on using overnight or you have a Ďheavy wetterí of a baby.
What I have not found so great†
So firstly for me was the side poppers at this moment in time. We have just exited the wriggly, wrestle your child to change them stage so for me personally I find front poppers much more convenient and easy. I am aware that many people find side poppers are better for wriggly babies so itís something to consider and it looks great from the front. I also love that the side poppers are a unique design and that it will be a nappy I reach for more frequently when we hit the toilet training stage.†
For me I like front birth to potty adjusters. They get a much better fit around my daughters legs and tummy. And this is something the bubblebubs lacks. Whilst she is 14 months old she is only on the 25th centile weight wise and 50th height wise so she is pretty small. Again because of the side poppers I found the fit wasnít as good on her and the top of the nappy would fold over on itself at the top. This wasnít a problem and didnít cause leaks but I didnít like the look of the folded over nappy. This would suit taller or longer babies.†
Overall this is a great nappy system of choice and really good value for money. Itís easy to use, looks great and has brilliant absorbency.†

Good quality wrap. On the smaller side so gives a good trim fit. I only ordered with the smaller booster but this does not have poppers so you should order the tri fold option instead if you want to use this as a system. The wrap fits over other nappies as long as they are narrow though.
