Babylove Cosifit Nappy Review and Win One of Two Nappy Prize Packs! #SLHFeaturedThursdays


Disposable nappies... us parents have got to be thankful for those don't we? Imagine life without these necessary helpers, doing some of life's most undesirable things? (Some of us wouldn't have large families, that's for sure.)

Just recently our eldest daughter turned 16. Apart from the shock of those years passing by so quickly, what struck me most on the day, was the fact that we have been buying and changing nappies for all that time.

That's some significant milestone!

There's no end in sight either.

Over the years we've tried just about every brand of disposable nappy on the market. There are some disposable nappy brands that we've liked and some that we've loved. There have also been a fair few brands that we've loathed too. I am sure we could all tell some horror stories on the topic.

In our time as parents, Babylove nappies have been a brand that we've mingled with happily, again and again. For many, they're a trusted and reliable product. They've certainly been this for us. We've always relied on the fact that we can find Babylove nappies absolutely everywhere too, when we're in need. The fact that Babylove are a popular choice with many parents, is a no-brainer.

When Babylove recently invited us to try out their newest Cosifit nappies, naturally we welcomed the offer. We've three kids using disposable nappies in our household: one full-timer and two part-timers.

 
I've been very relaxed on the whole toilet training experience with my youngest in particular.
 
Why rush?
 
If our daughter wants to use the potty, she does and if she doesn't (and that's around 70 per cent of the time at the moment) then no problem either.
 
To be honest, I quite like the nappy stage. There are freedoms to be had, like no accidents on the sofa or in the car when your child falls asleep and wees (or worse). There's also no annoying rush for the loo when you're out and about, because little bodies cannot hold a lot of fluid. Don't even start me on cleaning number twos from little undies...
 
These kinds of accidents are no parent's idea of fun and I especially don't appreciate the worry or the work with six kids to look after.
 
Then there's our younger boys who have taken forever to be fully night trained. We're still not there yet, despite being 8 and 9 years of age. Again, no real problem. (Though I'd love them to hurry up!)
 
So why do we like Babylove Cosifits?:
 
The shape of these nappies fits all of our nappy-wearers perfectly. They have a breathable cover which reduces the incidence of nappy rash and irritations.
 
The Cosifit design works to reduce red marks on your child's skin. They are stretchy and look comfy, like proper tailored undies. (Which is an especially important point when your children have sensitive skins and are prone to eczema, like mine.)
 
Babylove Cosifits are ultra-absorbent. Moisture vanishes instantly, leaving your child's skin comfortable and protected between changes. They are also absorbent for up to 12 hours, which is fantastic for parents such as myself, who tend to forget to change their child regularly on occasion. (Oops!)
 
 
Babylove Cosifit nappies also have double gathering supports at their edges (around the legs) which significantly reduce the incidence of leakage of the things we'd rather not deal with. They have fantastic grip-tabs with sizing indicators for securing onto busy little bodies too. There's also a contoured shape for a better fit where it matters most.
 
Babylove Cosifits are available in all sizes from Newborn to Junior - up to 25kg. (Making them ideal for my 8 and 9 year old sons - still!... Sigh.)
 

 Win one of two Babylove Cosifit nappy prize packs valued at $50 each.

Total prize pool $100.

  4. I can't believe you've been dealing with nappies for 16 years now Jody - there has to be a medal for that, surely? I love that you are letting your kids progress at their own pace - I think we tend to rush toilet training sometimes.

    1. Yes! Crazy huh?
      I am all for the slowly does it thing. I think when you've one or two kids, you really feel the peer pressure to conform and keep-up. Not so anymore though. I have to say I much prefer the slow method. No stress.

  5. I have two new grand babies due in October. What a wonderfully practical gift this prize would be. Thank you.

  6. My first child used to hide to poo so was not at all keen on pooing on the toilet while toilet training. One day we lost him in a department store which was obviously extremely stressful, but he was found when his little head was spotted peering out from under a rack of business shirts. The little darling had hidden under there to poo and in the process got it all over himself and the merchandise. It was so embarrassing but we were just so relieved to have found him safe and sound!

    1. Bahahaha! Oh god - it sounds horrid! Did they make you pay for the damage?!

      Delete
    2. No they didn't make us pay thank goodness! I was sure they would but they said it's fine, they were probably just happy to get rid of us after all that drama!

    3. Congratulations Cynthia, your son's poop story has netted you a $50 nappy prize! Well done (glad I wasn't there!).

  7. 2 in nappies it's tough. I can't wait until one is toilet trained but it seems so far away.

  8. The first time my little man finally made it to the toilet without promoting, I squealed so loudly in excitement. So loudly that I completely freaked him out and set the whole process back six months. Sigh.

    1. Without 'prompting' not promoting. Thanks autocorrect.

    2. LOL! Little ones are a temperamental lot. They're like handling cats - too loud or too fast and they're off the idea totally. :D

    3. Okay - winner number two - Having done this myself, I know how frustrating it can be. I loved everyone's tales here and wish there were more prizes to giveaway. Stay tuned...

    4. Thank you so much! Stunned and stoked!

  9. My niece had a beautiful baby boy just 2 days ago and I'd love to help her out as much as I can. New mums can always use a good supply of nappies. :)

  11. Currently trying to toilet train my 2 year old. She happily runs around without a nappy on after she wakes in the morning. A couple of weeks ago my 4 year old came to me exclaiming "Mum there's a nugget on my carpet!" ..... on further inspection I discovered a rather large poo that had been deposited neatly near her bed and luckily it hadn't been stepped on!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I asked my 2 year old if she had done Nuggets in her nappy instead of on the toilet and she replied "no mummy, I have chocolate in my belly and its coming out"

    OR

    the time my 2 year old wet herself and called out to me "mummy, I'm jumping in muddy puddles"

  14. I'd love to stock up on some new born nappies in preparation for an unexpected but exciting surprise :)

  15. Ah, that nappy stage! I remember if I was going to take the boys on a play date at noon, I would have to start getting ready, changing nappies 2 hours prior! Good times LOL!

  16. I once washed a disposable nappy that was amongst an entire load of washing, it wasn't a pretty site. My daughter had put it in with her dirty clothes, I always checked since then.
    I'd love some Babylove nappies for my little man. Kasey Evans

  21. With another one on the way,
    You can never have enough nappies I say!
    And with nappy technology changing all the time,
    A different brand to discover would be fine.

  22. I remember my toilet trained six year old not being able to hold on at the supermarket checkout. I was hurrying as much as I could but she just couldn't wait. I felt so bad for her.

  25. My very first poonami was incredible- how could one little girl hold that much poo?

  26. Our son has been toilet trained for a little while, however, today he needed to go while we were out and there was no toilet nearby. He peed on the concrete instead of the tree right behind him (had to laugh)

  32. Having already had one gorgeous boy I think we thought we had nappy changing all sorted out when baby number 2 came along. I went for a shower in the hospital and left my husband to change his nappy. I came out to nurses rushing into the room. My heart was thumping. Finally when my husband spluttered the whole story out I couldn't stop laughing. He'd been changing our son's nappy when our son did a big stream of wee, which landed right in our baby's mouth. In a panic my husband had called the nurses! So, did my husband learn to quickly cover our son's spout?? Nope! A few days later the wee again streamed out, my husband's mouth opened in surprise. Yes, you guessed it, my son had impeccable aim! :)

  33. I walked in to get my son and daughter up one morning. At this stage they were both sharing a room. Low and behold my daughter had decided to take her number 2 nappy off and do some lovely finger painting on the wall! Needless to say I thought it was time to start toilet training! Ashley Beech

  34. A funny nappy moment was when in the supermarket and barely awake from sleepless nights, I bought nappies in a size too small. Too tired to take them back to the store, I used them all on my little girl and prayed she didn't have a poo explosion. Vanda Bacich
