Bimbles Newborn Nappy Hire

Due Date:  


Expected: 25/06/2019  

Expected: 25/06/2019

Our Price:  £115.00

Brand:  The Nappy Lady


Excluded from all discount codes

The bimbles hire kits cost:
65 (single baby) + £50 deposit

On the return of the nappies the £50 deposit can either be refunded for used against a future order.

The Nappy Lady Bimbles Hire Kit contains:

  • 20 Bimbles.
  • 3 Nappi Nippas
  •  5 XS/Small Wraps

You'll also need to buy:

  • Paper Liners if you'd like to use them. (Bambinex liners fit the best.)
  • Nappy Bucket/Nappy Mesh to store the used ones in.

    Even with buying these additional items the cost of using the bimbles will work out less than you'd spend on disposables!

The Bimbles hire period is for 3 Calender Months, but can be extended for an extra £10 per month if required. Your hire period starts from when your baby is born and the hire kit is usually sent out 2 weeks before your due date. We know babies don't always arrive when they are meant to so if they do arrive earlier than this let us know and we'll try to get the kit out as soon as you notify us.

The Bimble Hire Kit will probably not be brand new but will be in a good, clean, sanitised and hygenic condition, washed at every return by The Nappy Lady.

We expect that returned bimbles will have been used and washed according to our guidelines but not damaged. We do expect some wear and tear of course. On the return of the nappies please do not worry if they are stained as this is common with newborn/breastfed poo. Stains are easily removed by drying them on the line (or even a window ledge) in the sun for a day or two and i'll be doing this on their return anyway. If any nappies are returned beyond use, the deposit or part of it may not be refunded to cover the cost of a replacement nappy.

The bimbles newborn nappies are very cute and incredibly useful for those early weeks when standard size 1 nappies just seem a bit too big on a tiny newborn.

Bimbles newborn officially fit from 4-15lbs although i find they struggle to fit from 12lbs. At a RRP price of £6.75 per nappy this makes buying bimbles a luxury most people can't justify for a nappy that will only last a few months.

However i think everybody should have the option of using bimbles, i know i was certainly very grateful for mine in the early days. They are more absorbent than muslins so perfect for night time and if you go out. They are shaped nappies so they offer excellent containment and no folding required. The bimbles are fully fleece lined so you don't have to use any other liners however using paper liners makes life easier in the early days.

Once hire kits are dispatched the hire fee will not be refunded in part or full in any circumstances other than in cases in stillbirth. The deposit will be refunded in full on safe return of the hire kit.

Fantastic for slim newborn
Thursday, 14 February 2019  | 

So delighted to come home from hospital and start using this kit. Little one is 7lb 10oz but slim and the nappies and wraps are just about starting to fit well. He would be completely swamped by our birth to potty ones. The Bimbles are so easy to put on and so soft on his bottom, and wash like a dream so far with a good drying time on my indoor airer (in February with heating on). Very efficient service from The Nappy Lady and all the nappies beautifully clean or brand new in the kit, and nice patterns on the wraps. Adding to the joy of the early weeks and I look forward to the next nappy change! If you are thinking of hiring one of these kits, do it!

Excellent kit
Thursday, 10 January 2019  | 

My partner and I have been using the Bimbles kit on our twins for 10 weeks now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It has been so easy to use even in the chaos of two babies and the amount of nappy changes that involves!
The bimble itself with nappi nipper is very straightforward even on wriggly babies and you get a good range of wraps to try out.
We have got into a good wash routine always trying to leave enough nappies until the next load is dry, a little tricky in the early days when nappy changes are very frequent. There were odd occasions when we used disposable and definetly looked forward to getting the bimbles back on the babies bums! So much better for their skin especially my sensitive skinned twin.
I would highly recommend this kit to anybody twins or singletons for it's ease of use and introduction into the world of cloth nappies!

Great kit unfortunately my boy hit the 12lb weight limit at 5 weeks (and barely fitted into them before that) so we didn't get that much use out of the kit.

I am very happy with the service and communication from the nappy lady so far. There is lots of advice on the website and being able to hire this kit for new born at a good price is great. Although the nappiesvare raring to go I cannot commentyet on their use as baby hasnít arrived yet . Thanks

Not for us!
Tuesday, 27 March 2018  | 

Great service and the product exactly as described but it wasn't for us. Managing the nappi nipper on these and then putting the wrap over the top while my newborn wriggled and screamed was just too much! Sure the nappy lady is totally right and these were better for containment but all in ones were so much easier for us and we didn't mind a few leaks. Tricky to know whether your wee one will be a reluctant nappy changer as you have to hire these kits so far in advance but something to think about.

Perfect newborn nappies
Tuesday, 11 April 2017  | 

Having hired newborn nappies from The Nappy Lady when my first daughter was born, we decided to repeat this for our second. We found Bimbles to be a great fit and easy to wash and dry. They are easy to use on a tiny squirming baby and, because you are changing the baby frequently the hire quantity from The Nappy Lady is just perfect.

Excellent service
Monday, 16 January 2017  | 

We were sure that we wanted to use a reusable nappy system from the start but didn't know how to make an informed decision from all the available options out there. The Nappy Lady's advice was invaluable, as is this hire kit, which lets you try it out for a few months before getting your own.

My baby is two weeks old and I have to say for inexperienced parents we are managing quite well with the Bimbles nappies! The Nappi Nippas are a little bit fiddly but not too onerous and the nappies themselves dry relatively quickly on a heated airer (we don't have a tumble dryer).

In all, we will definitely look to getting our own set when the hire period is over, and are very glad for the hire option so that we can give it a trial run!

Really useful hire kit!
Saturday, 10 September 2016  | 

I am really happy with this hire kit. Our system is to cloth nappy during the day, and use disposables during the night (husband took some convincing to cloth nappy!) The number of nappies in this kit, combined with the cloudy London weather lets me wash every 2 days without the dryer.

Size wise, these are a good fit for my baby - he was born 8oz 7lb and 55cm long (more tall than he is wide) and I think these nappies will last at least a month more depending on growth.

I would recommend buying a couple more wraps - personally I like the snaps better than the velcro which seems a bit scratchy. The milovia and blueberry newborn size covers fit well with these nappies.

Thank you nappy lady for a really useful bit of kit at a reasonable price, much appreciated.

Great newborn nappies without the expense of buying
Sunday, 26 June 2016  | 

I've just sent back my bumbles hire pack with wraps and have really enjoyed using them. The nappies were delivered several weeks early so I could practise but they were easy to put on and fitted baby well when she arrived (6lb 3oz). The nappies looked good quality and although used didn't have any stains and had plenty of life left in them. I also used the wrap hire which included airflow and Rikki motherease wraps, again used but plenty of life in them ( I think one was new). This also allowed me to decide which wraps were my favourite and which I'd purchase in the future. I would thoroughly recommend this hire pack, they are lovely slim but absorbent nappies that fit a newborn much better than btp or size 1 nappies but without the expense of buying them. As always a fantastic friendly and efficient service from h nappy lady- thank you!

Really pleased you've got on well with your kit. We check each kit as it comes back and retire items as they age and will replace with new on a regular basis :)

Good idea
Tuesday, 26 April 2016  | 

This is my 3rd child but have been using cloth for 5 years. I think hiring a newborn kit is an excellent idea as you don't need to pay for an extensive kit for a few weeks of wear. The Bimbles themselves are a nice design with a snug fit, and would have worked well on my first children - but my third is a heavy wetter so I did not find them absorbent enough and I had to boost them with bamboo boosters that I had to source elsewhere.

Great kit
Saturday, 28 June 2014  | 

I used cloth with my first child from 3 months (teddies during day & bumbles overnight) and this time around was keen to start sooner. The kit is ideal as the bimbles are essentially the same as bumbles only smaller so you get a snug fit. Hiring the kit means I didn't have to invest more money in tiny nappies whilst waiting for the baby to grow into the teddies.

I found the number of wraps & nappies to be fine, but then I was still doing a regular nappy wash for our eldest anyway and also the baby didn't dirty the nappy every time.

Overall v happy with the kit!

Excellent product!
Monday, 16 December 2013  | 

I started using the hire kit straight from birth (the hospital staff/midwives hadn't seen the reusable nappies before!) and they are absolutely brilliant. Very easy to use, they wash beautifully and baby girl seems to enjoy wearing them. I really prefer them to the few disposables that I've tried (even the organic natural ones) they are more substantial and obviously have both an environmental and financial benefit. I would highly recommend the hire system!

The nappies came in good time (the baby was almost two weeks late, anyway!) and great condition. The Bambinex liners fit perfectly, and everything is super easy to use.

The only thing stopping me from giving this product five stars is that I could do with more nappies. We do a wash every day just to stay on top of things - this is probably down to the fact that we do not have a tumble drier. It might be good to recommend the twins kit for people without driers.

A great way to try cloth nappies for first timers
Tuesday, 21 May 2013  | 

We've been using bimbles for our first child as my husband and. Really wanted to use cloth nappies, but didn't want to spends lot if money only to find out tha it wouldn't work for us. This is the best nappy hire for newborns I've found. It's exceptional value for money as other hire schemes usually only let you have nappies for a few weeks.

The nappies themselves arrived in I good time and in excellent condition. I've recommended ths to everyone expecting I baby that I know.
