I had never changed a nappy before I had children. The ones you do in those parenting classes when the baby is a forgiving, non-wriggling doll do NOT count.
Practice makes perfect though and before you know it you have changed one after the other, sometimes literally seconds between each one. And on top of that you’re having multiple conversations about them too – “How was it?” is a normal question to ask or be asked in this household after a nappy change. With 2 kids that love to EAT (well one is still exclusively drinking), that question is asked often.
So having tried and tested plenty of brands on the market I was keen to give the new Treasures nappies a go. Treasures nappies have been wrapping around kiwi baby bums for more than 30 years now but have just recently landed on Aussie shores.
With one semi-toilet training toddler and a newborn, I put Hairy McLairy on the butt and here is the verdict!
I think if nappies are going to be based on a character then I’m going to like the fact that they are based on one that is from a book and not a TV show. Tom was super excited as Hairy McLairy is his long-time favourite character.
I really like the thick tabs as some of them can be so thin and rip all the time. They are also really stretchy so you can make sure it is tight around the back.
We had no issues with rashes or the texture of the nappy itself. They are slim but expand easily to store plenty!
Do they leak?
It’s the milion dollar question isn’t it. I mean that’s what you really want to know about a nappy. I had absolutely no leakages when using it with Tom (17-25kg) both during the day and overnight. During the day he averages 1-2 nappy changes and overnight no changes. I found the elastic around the edge of the nappy great for holding everything in!
Jeremy’s has had no leakages during the day which is HUGE for him as he has had a huge problem with poo explosions going right up his back after long sleeps. I have tried so many brands and they have all failed in that department.
I tried him without a change overnight a few times as he usually only wakes for one feed overnight and I try not to wake him further by changing his nappy! He is quite content to have a big feed and go back to sleep until morning.
I did have one leakage from the sides one time. But on average that is pretty good! And it’s much easier to clean than all up the back and through a jumpsuit and snap singlet.
Their price is decent considering the cost of leading brands! I live nowhere near anything except for an IGA so it suits me to buy from there which is where these nappies are stocked.
