Review: Peachy Green Solo Luxe AIO sized nappy

I’ll confess, I hadnt heard of Peachy Green nappies (previously called Bright Star Baby – please see the update at the bottom of the review for more info) before Amanda at Baby Bum Boutique got in touch and asked if we’d like to review one. I nipped over to her shop to have a look at them and to say I was eager was an understatement! They looked fantastic; prints, side snaps, AIO (but you can unsnap the insert for better washing and faster drying), trim fitting, bamboo/cotton soakers – all of which are some of my favourite nappy related words, they almost seemed a bit too good to be true!

So back to the nappy itself, they are £17.75 and come in 3 sizes: Size 0, 1 and 2. Sized nappies do work out slightly more expensive in the long run but they always give such a trim fit, I’ve always preferred them on Chloe. We have the size 1 and Chloe’s around 21lbs so I’m pretty sure that due to the super stretchy outer this will last Chloe a bit beyond the stated max weight, which is always good.

So as mentioned, there is a snap in insert which attaches to the back of the nappy and is made from 100% bamboo/organic cotton fleece, which feels nice and soft. It’s what I’d call a double tongue style (two pieces attached at one end) but the great thing is the bottom piece is double layered at the end, towards the front of the nappy. So you get 3 layers there in total (or you could always fold it to the middle/back if needed. And as I said it has side snaps, which I always love, these give a lovely smooth finish across the belly, and it means you can have different settings for the legs and waist, perfect for Chloe.

So I was pretty much in love with it when I saw it, it went straight on and the fit was one of the best in cloth nappies we’ve had. The lovely stretch to the nappy is fantastic and it was so trim, you’d think she was wearing a disposable nappy. She didnt have it on for long but luckily enough the next day was wash day (is that a bit sad I get excited when it’s nappy wash day?) so I gave it some extra washing in the machine, ready for next time to give it a good testing. The weather is pretty rubbish here at the minute so I hung it on the airer inside and unsnapped the insert to help with drying and it was fully dry by morning.

At this point I was thinking ‘I love this nappy but I bet it doesnt last 5 minutes on Chloe’ as that’s generally the case I’ve found with pretty nappies. So on the nappy went and she had it on for about 3 hours before I chickened out and changed her but there were no leaks. Chloe is a heavy wetter so I was thinking we’d only get 2ish hours out of such a trim nappy but we can get around 3 hours out of it no problem. And if I stick in a little bamboo booster, which doesnt add to the bulk of the nappy at all then we can easily go 4 hours. There is a hemp booster that you can buy and snap in with the insert for heavy wetters/night time which I wouldnt mind getting for Chloe (see update below) but really any small booster you have laying around will work if you do need one.

Ease of use: These are pretty much perfect, you dont have to unsnap the insert at all but if you do then it’s super quick just to snap it back on once dry and you’re ready to go. I find side snapping nappies really easy to put on and once Daddy knows what snaps Chloe is on then he has no problems with them, the stretch to the fabric also helps to get a nice snug fit.

Performance: No leaks, no wicking (which I was wary of) and containment is perfect – nothing escapes! Drying time really is good, especially with being able to snap out the insert. And it’s stayed lovely and soft, even when it’s been dried on the line, which does tend to make some nappies hard and crunchy. Also there’s been no hint of red marks on Chloe’s thighs which is happening more and more these days, the soft leg elastic combined with the ability to do different waist and leg snap setting is a win for us.

Design: The range of prints and colours is really great and I hear there are new limited edition prints released regularly, which is always fab to hear. I dont think there’s a single thing I dont like about this nappy, oh wait actually, I’d love it if the label was on a black background instead of white on the darker prints like the Girly Pirate we have and a stay dry layer on the top of the insert would be fab, just to stop Chloe from feeling too wet but we just use a fleece liner so it’s not the end of the world. Yes I know that’s being really fussy but there’s nothing else I can find to fault with it!

Overall: It’s official, I am in love with this nappy, it has everything I adore, fun prints, side snaps, an amazing fit, easy to use, absorbent and did I mention the incredible trimness? We had no problems putting Chloe in a pair of skinny jeans which I have been having trouble squeezing her fluffy bum into with other nappies on.

It is a little on the expensive side for a sized nappy but like I said the stretchiness to the fabric will probably mean it lasts a bit above the stated size ranges and personally I think it’s worth that little bit more. I have actually already put an order in for 2 more (and believe me I had trouble stopping at just two!). Amanda is more than happy to take preorders as otherwise the most popular prints sell out fast. This may not be an amazing workhorse of a nappy for us that Chloe can go 4-5 hours in unboosted but it’s so pretty and slim fitting that it is a real favourite with both me and Daddy. Well worth every penny and am so happy we’ve come across it!

We were kindly sent this nappy to review, however no one has told me what to write, all words (including spelling mistakes) and opinions are 100% my own and genuine.

Update 7th November 2011

We still love these nappies and actually have 5 of them now, (plus a matching Tshirt for the Girly Pirates nappy – which Chloe looks too cute in!). I did try the hemp boosters but didnt find them to be that great and wasnt too keen on the design of them. They snap to the the back of the nappy and then you snap the normal insert to them. I didnt like how this makes quite a chunk of plastic, a triple snap on snap bit, which as you can imagine is quite big. Plus it’s longer then the insert, so you can fold it for more boosting where needed, but I’d have just preferred it to be the same length as unless it’s a pre creased/stitched over fold it always makes it bulkier, IYGWIM! But as I love the slimness of these so much I’m more then happy to go without the booster and just change Chloe around the 3 hour mark before the nappy gets too wet – or just add a normal bamboo booster to make it go longer. And I can say that the inside of the nappies and inserts are still relatively soft, they havent got hard/crunchy like I’d have expected after months and months of use. Daddy is still a big fan of these as they are so simple to put on, not bulky and you can just chuck them in the nappy bin when done (although I still do unsnap the insert).

The main reason for the update is to say Bright Star Baby had now changed their name to Peachy Green so I have updated the review to reflect that, but be assured that they are still 100% made to the same design and materials etc. And they are still releasing gorgeous limited editions prints and a new AI2 style nappy has also been released where the inside of the nappy is fleece I believe, so that you should be able to just change the inserts at change time and reuse the same cover, like a Flip nappy. I havent tried them and they arent out over here yet but I’m sure I’ll have to get one to try when Amanda at Baby Bum Boutique has them in stock!
