Bambooty Basics are an All in Two birth to potty nappy system. Each nappy comes with a booster which contains 3 layers of thirsty bamboo fabric which can be positioned to increase absorbency at the front of the nappy for boys or tummy sleepers. The booster has a suede cloth top which makes them more stain resistant and also offers a stay dry feel for baby.

Bambooty basics have a fluffy outer cover which remains beautifully soft to the touch.  The cut of the Bambooty Basics is very trim and neat making them perfect if you're looking for a slim nappy. They are especially good for very slim babies.  The length of the nappy is short to average so don't buy this nappy if you have a long baby or tall family as it's likely it will be outgrown before potty training.  Bambooty Basics have been compared to Itti Bitti brand which is no longer available.

As the Bambooty Basic is an all in two nappy this can be a very economical system. When drying these nappies the Minky shells normally dry faster than the absorbency flaps, meaning you can get away with fewer shells than snap-in inserts, which saves you money.  In theory it is possible to occassionally change only the snap in insert of the nappy, instead of the whole nappy at a change. We do find however that most people change the whole nappy each time and you must do this if the shell gets soiled or wet.   We sell the separate loose boosters in either microfibre or bamboo.

Excellent wrap, not so great insert
Friday, 16 April 2021  | 

Iíve used these nappies on my now 13-month old for around 10 months. The wraps are amazing - though theyíre not double-gussetted they capture poo really well and doníít leak even with Breastfeeding runny poo and my daughterís toddler diarrhea! But the reason I love them is the soft materials which donít rub on my daughterís skin the way all of the plasticky wraps Iíve tried seem to. The poppers are great too - initially I worried theyíd be more awkward to fasten than Velcro but theyíre not, and they donít cause the big stiff patch on the front of the spot you get with Velcro, or come undone and stick to the inserts and get mangled in the washing machine! After 10 months of constant use (every other day washing) they are still like- new, clean, gorgeously soft and lovely designs. Theyíre also narrow between the legs which I feel gives my daughter more freedom of movement than a lot of nappies Iíve seen and will be more comfortable for her.

The inserts on the other hand arenít great. The stay-dry layer intended to be worn against the skin is basically water repellent so any big wee runs off it and straight out the nappy. This seems a common theme with stay dry layers to me so I have to put it against the wrap and have the bamboo against her skin - not the end of the world but it means itís just adding bulk to the nappy. The inserts go very stiff in the wash which I worry isnít comfy for my little one, though this can be fixed by tumble drying. They also donít hold a huge amount so leak wee if not boosted - however, I just boost with a cotton wipe or 2, or the little lamb size 1 booster pads that fit very nicely in the wrap. More annoyingly the inserts have started to develop holes in the bamboo fabric with loose fibres and rough patches so I need to replace them - they havenít lasted for one baby let alone 2! I do wash at 60 so that may be why but I wonít be buying more of them!

So I would recommend trying for the wrap but expect to replace or boost the insert. At least theyíre on the cheaper side for nappies!

I love this little nappy for it's fit, it's the slimmest fitting nappy I have, so neat, it absorbs and holds very well. I use it during the daytime, haven't tried it at night. It takes a couple of day's to dry, that's it's only down.

Brilliant find
Friday, 13 November 2020  | 

Weíve only used this nappy a couple of time but itís surprised me with its absorbency. It lasted 2.5 hours on my 12 week old and wasnít saturated when I changed her. Itís a lovely fit and beautiful fabrics. Iíll be buying more to add to our stash.

Surprisingly good!
Wednesday, 23 September 2020  | 

This has been a suprise find. It's slim and does the job. We use a cotton booster in addition to the one supplied, but only because my son floods (wees rarely, but are huge), so we need something that soaks up the excess quickly. It lasts about 2.5hours on our 8m old.

Average - not as good as other reviewers claim
Sunday, 10 May 2020  | 

Like another reviewer I bought one of these to try due to them being reasonably priced, I was looking for something slim to be able to use out of the house to supplement my terry stash at home. Pro's are adjustability I got a good fit on my average to chunky 6 month old and it's so beautifully soft and slim he seemed comfortable and able to move freely without restriction, however whilst it holds a good few hours of wee the poo containment is on par with a disposable it leaks at the legs. The insert also takes forever to dry even in a hot conservatory but don't feel like buying the microfiber insert to try due to containment being so average, therefore I will be keeping this as a spare and I won't be buying more.

A good two part nappy
Friday, 8 May 2020  | 

I bought these nappies as I liked the designs and they were so cheap I thought they were worth trying. I've found them surprisingly absorbent, and the stay dry layer seems to work very well. I plan to buy more inserts as the outer shell could be used more than once for a wet nappy. They're also quite slim fitting and I find the inserts dry in a day/day and a half in an airing cupboard.

Not for the skinny ones
Tuesday, 15 October 2019  | 

I bought one of these because I liked the prints, and they were cheap, so I thought I might as well give it a try. It's leaked every time we've tried it, though I wouldn't say that's necessarily the nappy's fault; my baby is tall & skinny, with skinny legs (5 months / 13lbs) and this nappy just isn't a good fit on her. The print is indeed pretty though! Seems to leak around the legs, because hers just don't fill the gaps enough!

Cheap but do a great job
Wednesday, 12 June 2019  | 

I like this nappy as itís reliable. The legs are gentle but fit well on little legs. They work from the first wash. I like the cross over poppers but wish they had 2 rows. The cover dries really fast but the insert takes so long

Great nappies
Wednesday, 5 September 2018  | 

Great nappies. Extremely economical as they are birth-to-potty, not expensive compared to others and you donít need a new outer shell every time. The bamboo inserts are v absorbent bit you still need some micro fibre ones for a quicker drying time (particularly in winter time). Fairly slim nappy, lovely designs. A fave of mine.

Good for petite babies
Monday, 13 August 2018  | 

I added these to my stash as the minky outer appealed to lessen chafing. My toddler (16 months) is certainly very comfortable in them, they do not rub at all.
They are prone to wicking onto trousers etc so I keep these mostly for days sheís in dresses and/or the nappies can be seen. The prints are adorable and my toddler will chose them every time if she has her way! All in all a nice day out nappy.

Poor containment
Wednesday, 3 January 2018  | 

This nappy looks cute and washes well but I was really disappointed by the containment no matter how I put it on it leaks out the legs. Could be that my baby is just the wrong shape for this nappy as he is quite tall.

Easy, effective and value for money
Wednesday, 23 November 2016  | 

These arrived quickly and were well packaged-great service, as usual from The Nappy Lady.
These nappies are great go to's for days out. Pretty prints and nice soft material against baby's bottom. Great stretch around the waist. They aren't too bulky and dry super quickly.
Don't find containement as effective as Little Lambs shaped so change them more regularly.

My favourite nappy
Monday, 14 March 2016  | 

These have become my absolute favourite cloth nappy- I have just ordered some more! I love the soft outer shell and they come in a lovely range of colours/prints. They are a fantastic fit on my 6 month old boy and we have yet to have a leak. I do prefer the bamboo snap in inserts as we get 3-4 hours from these, great for when you need to go out. We still get around 2 hours from the standard microfiber inserts though so overall very happy.

Reliable nappy at good price
Wednesday, 26 August 2015  | 

Bought 10 of these when I was pregnant. Both the microfiber and bamboo boosters are great never had a leak with these nappies. I felt they were a bit bulky when I first started using them when my little man was 9 weeks (was small at 10 pounds at the time) but now he is that bit bigger they aren't much bulkier than any of my other brands. Great nappy at a good price
