The Sandy's are one of the best loved, most absorbent 'fitteds' available on the market. An industry leader, the Sandy's was the very first nappy to sport the front over back side closure design. The style and fit of the Sandy’s is similar to that of a disposable nappy.

A full set of high tech, never fail, elastics both in the waist front and waist back and at the leg openings ensures all bowel movements will remain contained, no matter the consistency. These little gems close at the sides using plastic snaps with a front over back design.

Sandy’s by Motherease are popper fastening slim nappies available in 4 sizes and come in natural cotton terry or bamboo fabrics.

Fabrics

Natural Cotton Terry

This terry is specially knit with only cotton touching your baby’s delicate skin, polyester is knit into the base of the fabric to provide strength, durability and shrinkage control. The result is a very stretchy, comfortable and reliable product. Cotton terry is Motherease's most durable fabric. Both Natural and Organic Cotton Terry have polyester in the fabric base weave.

Sizes
  • X-Small (newborn), 6-12lbs (used with XS Motherease rikki wrap ONLY)
  • Small, 8-20lbs
  • Large, 20-35lbs
  • Toddlease, 35lbs+

The XS (newborn) size of the Sandy’s allows you to use them from 6lbs approximately and is ideal if planning on using from birth. However the weight range of this size of nappy only goes up to 12lbs meaning you would need to purchase another set of small sized nappies before moving onto the large size. It therefore makes more financial sense to stick to a two sized system by starting with the small size suitable from 8-18lbs approximately and then moving onto the large size (18-35lbs).

The stretch terry fabric and popper fastenings mean that some people like to use it as a trainer pull-up pant but with the added advantage of the full absorbency of a proper nappy. Many children are potty trained before reaching 35lbs and so will not need the Toddlease size of nappy. If however you do have a larger child the ToddleEase; which is another name for an XL Sandys, is suitable for children over 35lbs and when boosted makes a fantastic and reliable night nappy as well.

The Workhorse of nappies
Wednesday, 9 September 2020  | 

Very impressed with these. I have heard then described as the “workhorse of nappies” and they lived up to this! I initially tried them as I was impressed with the Motherease airflow which I used over a bamboozle at night. I now use sandy’s day and night and I no longer use my pocket nappies as the sandy’s are just so easy and comfortable for my 5 month heavy wetter! Husband also gets on with them which is a bonus! I recommend these to everyone!

Hadn’t really heard much about these nappies but was buying a selection of two parters and thought we’d give it a go. They are really ace. Easy to put on (the poppers are exactly where you’d want them for a wriggly toddler who will only be changed standing up!), long fit, and work perfect with a absorbent booster and a wool wrap for long sittings. The fluted edges do mean you’d probably want a wool or anavy style pull up wrap especially if you’ve got a girl!

Great night time solution
Saturday, 5 September 2020  | 

I tried these nappies as an alternative to the traditional ‘Velcro’ night nappies as I am trying to eliminate velcro nappies to protect my other motherease nappies in the wash.

I’m really pleased with them and wish I had tried them sooner. The popper fastening is great and they work really well with an airflow wrap. Nice and simple to do up when my little one rolls off too!

I’m definitely going to buy more of these.

Ok, not the best for containment for small legs
Thursday, 20 August 2020  | 

I was looking for something similar to a Bamboozle in absorbency that isn’t made of bamboo so tried these for my (then) 6 week old. They’re lovely and soft and I like the side poppers, and they go well with the ME airflow. But, they aren’t as leakproof as a Bamboozle, and the XS size didn’t contain a couple of BF newborn poo explosions, although my baby was well in the weight range. His legs have rounded out and the fit is better now. Not the slimmest 2 part nappy either.

I was so pleased when this nappy arrived for our 3 month old to try at night time. They are soo soft and I love the poppers, making them very easy to use.
She just leaked through even after a couple of hours wear. Tried on our 2 year old and she also leaked through these. Both had a booster in. Don't want to give up as they're so lovely and soft.

I used these nappies for my daughter who is now 18 and now I’ve purchased more for my 8 week old baby. I love how they are made and the fabulous containment around the legs, even though the fabric and elastic is very gentle on baby’s skin. It can be used as a night nappy with a booster and is less bulky than some other night nappies.

Great nappy
Wednesday, 30 October 2019  | 

Sandys are my go to nappy if I have any wraps. I like that they have never leaked on me. They last for about 4 hours so if I'm leaving the house and not sure when I will get to change him next I put these on my son. They are easy to fit and not as tight fitting as pocket nappies so leave fewer marks. They look comfy as the elastic aren't tight and they fit lower on the leg which seems more comfortable. So easy to put on as long as you have a large enough wrap to cover. Their sizes last ages so right now I'm on a small Sandy with a medium rikki or airflow.
They're my favourite nappy but I only use in the day as they get too soaked for night. I use bamboozle at night.

Wednesday, 21 August 2019  | 

I bought one Sandy’s just to try out and I LOVE them . These are now my go to night nappy . My daughter is a slim 9 month old so the small still fits perfectly. Lovely and soft and very absorbant- I usually stick a Sandys stay dry booster in for night time but I have used with a stay dry liner and it was plenty absorbant enough for us. The nappy doesn’t look as modern as the UNO’s BUT i love how soft and comfortable they are for night time and they are natural fibre with the frilly soft edging. I pair with a motherease Airflow wrap and love this combo. Also love that they are sized- as my daughter is dinky it just is so neat ....I highly recommend.

Great for babies that won’t lie down
Sunday, 21 July 2019  | 

These are fab for a two part system. My chunky 10 month old won’t lie down so we use these like pull ups, then pull an airflow wrap with 3 of the 4 poppers already done up over the top. It’s not as slim as our unos but it’s not bulky either. Dries quicker than our bamboozles and no Velcro to get fluffy in the wash. They are great on containment we’ve had no leaks despite some epic antibiotic poops (thank goodness he wasn’t in a disposable!!), and the fit is really forgiving so much less tucking and checking than an all in one. I’ll be getting more when I can lay my hands on them.

Saturday, 22 June 2019  | 

I knew I wanted to cloth nappy my second baby and spent a lot of time researching for what kind would be suitable. I came across these motherease sandys (size small) and decided to try them. They are working fantastic as I’ve never had any leaks - even breastfed poop (I’m using the motherease airflow wraps) and they are very good quality and wash well. They do take quite a while to get dry though. Even so, I just love using these cloth nappies on my baby and using the poppers to fasten them, they are just lovely

Excellent quality, but very slow drying
Friday, 26 April 2019  | 

In terms of containment, absorbency, and ease of use, these nappies are fantastic. I especially like the fact that they are fastened with poppers as this entirely avoids the problem of laundry tabs coming undone in the wash and velcro getting clogged up with fluff.

The only downside is the drying speed. I bought organic cotton and they are the slowest drying nappies I own - consistently slower even than the bambinex bamboo. This is the only reason I haven't awarded 5 stars - they are otherwise excellent and I wish I'd bought more!

Amazing and reliable nappies
Monday, 3 December 2018  | 

I purchased a few sandy’s nappies following recommendation from The Nappy Lady after filling in their questionnaire of important criteria for me. They are the first reusable nappies I used and they are bsolutely amazing. Super reliable - we haven’t had any leaks or accidents, despite my baby being exclusively breastfed and having very runny poo (we’ve had plenty of leaks with disposable ones). They are very easy to use and very soft on my baby’s skin.
They take a bit of time to dry (1 day approx) but I was expecting that anyone from organic cotton cotton - I always make sure I wash nappies on time so that I never run out (I have 12 of these and usually load a washing machine per day or day be a half and I have so far never run out of them as they dry on time).

They are a bit bulky, and so I tried a different brand (an all in one made of polyester) and even though they were of a slimmer fit, we had a couple of leaks, so I realised that the Sandy nappies are extremely reliable and very absorbent. I definitely prefer bulkiness over leaks, so these are my favourite cloth nappies!
Shane they don’t come in a size birth-to-potty, though! I will definitely buy a size up when my baby is 20lb.

I would highly recommend (unless slim fit is an must criteria)

We bought one of these as I read so many good reviews, it's been so disappointing! We used it once, it's so bulky and didn't wash well. Then hung it up to dry with our LL microfibre and bamboo nappies and Baba & Boo and it was still damp after two days, the bamboo LL were quicker and they take a while! Not a fan, have given it to a friend to try for her new baby

Good BUT...
Thursday, 8 November 2018  | 

These were one of the only nappies that fit my little boy from birth (just under 7 lbs). At first they were one of my favourite nappies because they were really easy to put on, had excellent absorption and containment, dried fairly quickly (both cotton and bamboo ones) and fit well under the XS airflow wrap. I liked that you can adjust the waist and legs separately. HOWEVER, at 10 lbs my little boy is already too big for the XS. Even on the largest waist setting he was getting marks from about 9 1/2 lbs even though he has a pretty narrow waist. At 10 lbs the next size up is already a fairly snug fit at the waist. So what seems like a fairly reasonably priced nappy turns out to be poor value for money since they don't fit for anything near the full stated weight range.

Great night nappy
Wednesday, 30 August 2017  | 

I use these nappies at night with a booster and a wool wrap for my little boy. He has very sensitive skin but these are so soft and never leave a mark on him (find the bamboo to be softer than the cotton ones). He is a tummy sleeper and love the fact that these popper at the side so don't dig in to him. They are very absorbant and have never had a leak since folding over the booster at the front (he sometimes soaks through a disposable nappy at night). Find them to be quite bulky though so only use for nighttime.

Washed out and takes ages to dry
Thursday, 23 June 2016  | 

When this nappy turned up it looked adorable. Was a beautiful colour and soft and comfortable looking but bulky on, especially with a wrap on top. After one wash it looked discoloured and washed out and I really should have asked for my money back. Though it's been fine to use, it takes days to dry as the booster is sewn in and I think you'd need a tonne of these if you want your baby in cloth full time. Bottom line, bulky, washed out and not time efficient for every day use, yet comfortable, soft and does a good job of keeping mess in. I think there's better out there for the same price.

Response:

sorry you found the nappy washed out. The natural and organic cotton are not bleached so have natural cream colouring. This will fade with washing down to an off white colour. This isn't a fault it's the type of fabric. Check your detergent as if it has optical brighteners and bleaches included (many do) this will lead to fading even quicker.

The nappy is absorbent, good shape but not an ideal fit. It sits quite high and hence would need to be quite adjustable at the top as the baby grows. Mine barely has 10lbs and already I'm on the outer poppers. In addition as they are high, I need to use at least a medium wrap to cover it.

Friday, 11 March 2016  | 

I bought these nappies for my 20 months old boy which get really wet during night sleeps. Because of wetting a lot I used these nappies over the normal disposable nappies, which would become a little uncomfortable during the night for him. Even though with two nappies he still gets wet sometimes, also on his clothes.
Probably i will need nappies in a very strong absorbable material.

Response:

I'm sorry you've not got on with these nappies but it sounds like you're using them all wrong. The sandys nappies do not have any waterproofing in them they need a waterproof cover over the top. If you are using them OVER a disposable to catch disposable leaks then the cloth nappy will pick up the dampness but then will transfer it to clothes so you should be using a wrap such as the motherease sandys over the top.

Great nappy but could be even better
Thursday, 4 February 2016  | 

I already had some cotton toddle-ease nappies and have found these to be fantastic at poo containment as well as lasting for hours, only needing to use 2 per day (with disposables at night). The bamboo ones are softer (though to be fair they're also newer); I bought them hoping they would have better absorbency but then realised that although bamboo is more absorbent, mother-ease use this fact to make the bamboo nappies thinner and still the same absorbency as cotton. By this age I am not fussed how bulky they are, especially having already used cotton, but am aware the wetting only gets more as they get bigger so was hoping these would take more!

Tuesday, 24 November 2015  | 

We have been using Sandy XL in combination with wool pants for over 6 month now. LO is an average sized 28 months old and is a front sleeper. He drinks at lease 200ml milk right before going to bed. And we only change his night nappy after breakfast. The nappy is boosted with two LL bamboo inserts folded in half to the front, and still feels very spacious. Sandy is more absorbent than Bamboozle and cheaper in price. It takes around 1 1/2 days to dry in my airing cupboard. I've heard sandy can see through 2-3 children easily. Overall very reliable nappy and have no issues so far.

The only nappies I'll buy
Wednesday, 6 May 2015  | 

These nappies are just brilliant. They are soft, easy, adjustable, and best of all do not leak! They may not look as cute as some of the the other slimmer nappies, but I think the greater size helps keep nasties where they are meant to be. I like that they are wider than some others too which helps babies keep their hips in the correct position.
