I’d heard so many people saying it was a great nappy choice for overnight wear and I have to agree. It’s a really absorbent nappy that’s also stretchy and comfortable.
The whole nappy is absorbent bamboo and not waterproof so you have to use a waterproof wrap, like the TotsBots PeeNut Wrap, over the nappy and a fleece liner on the inside to keep your baby’s bottom nice and dry.
This nappy has won Best Reusable Nappy in the Mother & Baby Awards four years in a row which is well-deserved.
The Velcro fastening makes it really easy to put on and adjust to your baby’s size and there are adjustable poppers too, to adjust the size of the whole nappy. Other features include a removable booster. We don’t use any extra boosters — the Bamboozle Stretch offers plenty of absorbency on its own for 12-14 hours overnight wear for my toddler.
These nappies come in three sizes: 1, 2 and 3. Size 1 and 2 are the more widely available ones and size 1 is suitable for smaller babies between 6-18lbs and size 2 is more like a birth to potty size that fits 8-35lbs. Size 3 fits from 35lbs and above. I have three size 2s and one size 3 for my toddler who weighs around 25lbs and size 2 fits but I prefer size 3 on her as it seems more comfortable. The one shown in this post is the size 3.
Size 3 only comes in the Natural design though. The fun printed ones are only available in the smaller sizes. I have the Buzz one and the Daydream one and they’re so adorable!
I love how slim the Bamboozle is! You can see it compared to a LittleLamb bamboo nappy below and you can see that it’s quite a lot slimmer.
The PeeNut Wrap makes the waterproof shell for the Bamboozle Stretch and fits perfectly over it. There are no double gussets, which is something I normally prefer to have, but the coverage and fit is still really good and we’ve not had any leaks at all.
A good thing about using fitted nappies and wraps is that you can reuse the wrap a few times and just add a new inner fitted nappy which saves on washing. The PeeNut wrap can also be used with PeeNut pads but more about them another day.
The recommendation by TotsBots is to have one wrap per five Bamboozles. My ratio is a bit higher. I have two TotsBots PeeNut wraps and four Bamboozles for my toddler but sometimes use other wraps too. Sometimes the wrap feels a bit damp or I’m using another system in the daytime and don’t want the wrap laying around so I just wash it with the Bamboozle. But if you’re just using Bamboozles and/or PeeNut pads, 1-2 wraps per five nappies/pads set is probably good.
Both the Bamboozles Stretch nappies and the wraps wash really well — the nappies stay soft and the wraps look great after washing quite a lot of times. Always remember to not dry the wraps in the sun! Put them in the shade or dry them indoors away from any radiators. The Bamboozles take a long time to dry so they benefit from sunshine and wind. They need two days on the line for me when it’s warm like it is now but I do think they dry faster than EasyFits Star nappies as the cover is separate. They can be tumble dried on low if needed but it’s always best to air dry when possible.
I would definitely recommend this system to other parents. It’s really easy to get a good fit and the absorbency is brilliant!
I have bought my TotsBots Bamboozle Stretch and PeeNut Wraps directly from the TotsBots website, from a lovely shop called Natural Baby Shower (TOTS10 gives you 10% off TotsBots nappies at the moment!) and good ole’ Amazon.co.uk which is my favourite shop as they sell everything and the prices are very competitive.
