Real Nappies Cloth Diapering System

I am so happy to be sharing with you the Real Nappies Cloth Diaper system from New Zealand. In New Zealand  the work “nappy” means “diaper”, “Real Diapers” is a great name for this high quality diapering system! Real Nappies has been voted the number one cloth diaper by parents, maternity hospitals and childcare centers in New Zealand and I can see why.

Oko-Tex Testing

Real Nappies diapering products go through the rigorous Oko-Tex Testing. Oko-Tex (pronounced ‘echo-tex’) is a process of testing that checks for over 100 harmful substances. Every thread, every stitch, and every layer of the Real Nappies cloth diaper is tested for over 100 harmful substances! To maintain certification Real Nappies must undergo continual testing. I am happy to know that the diaper I’m putting on my child’s most delicate parts are chemical free!

As you can see from the product summary above the Real Nappies Diaper System is of the utmost quality! I was extremely pleased with the durabilty of the diaper cover or wrap as it is made of 2 layers of PUL that are sandwiched together to give excellent waterproof protection, and a totally breathable diaper wrap. When paired with the highly absorbent 100% cotton insert you create a superior protection system! This insert is not like any other, it is extremely thick and soft. I have not had to use any other inserts with the Real Nappies Cotton Insert. An additional option to the Real Nappies system is the 100% Bio-degradable liner. Simply place the liner on top of your insert  and when your child soils you simple lift up the liner with soiled matter and flush down the toilet! This makes cloth diapering so much easier and helps keep your inserts cleaner.

Real Nappies also offers additional accessories such as the night time booster pad, training pants, swim diapers and detergent.

The Real Nappies Two-Child Guarantee

Real Nappies is so confident in their product that they offer a Two-Child Guarantee! “You’ll be able to use Real Nappies Cloth Diapers and Snug Wraps for at least two children. Should any Real Nappies cloth diaper or diaper cover you purchase from us fail before your second child has outgrown it, we’ll replace or repair the item.”

As you learned in my Thirsties Cloth Diaper Review I was hesitant to use prefolds, but I have completely over come that fear and I love using prefolds and the Real Nappies Cloth Diapers. I am also more at ease knowing that these prefolds are chemical free.

I have been trying to avoid the hook & loop closure system as that makes it easier for my 2 year old to take off her diaper. Well guess what… she can now take off her snap cloth diapers! So that leaves the hook & loop closure systems in the playing field and honestly I like them a lot better than the snaps! It is so much easier to get the diapers on and off and with an active 2 year old every millisecond counts! The diaper covers are very sturdy and I can see them lasting through two or more children. They do come in several solid color choices, however currently you must purchase them individually to receive different colors. I would like to see the option to pick a color or colors for the cloth diaper packages. I would also love to see some fun new prints or more bright colors added to the mix. I am extremely happy with the Real Nappies diaper cover and how well it fits. Out of all the cloth diapers I’ve tried I would have to say the the Real Nappies Cover provides the best fit for my daughter. The hook & loop makes it extremely adjustable… move it in/out or up/down. You place where it fits your child the best.

After reviewing several one size diapers and several “fitted” diapers I would have to say that I prefer the “fitted” diapers. The fitted diapers I have tried especially the Real Nappies have conformed better to the shape of my child which ultimately provides better leak protection. You do have a little more expense in fitted diapers as you have to by bigger sizes as your baby grows. With the affordability of the Real Nappies cloth diapers I think they are a great investment!

My only concern with Real Nappies is I do prefer to support products manufactured here in the United States and their products are manufactured in China. I can honestly say that is my only concern and I would highly recommend these diapers to anyone! Real Nappies are extremely affordable, easy to use, great quality and highly tested!
