I have been using Baba&boo for some time now and love their nappies. My daughter is now rash free, comfortable, dry and doesn't leak, which is what you want from any nappy.
Cloth was never my thing to be honest, I was using Pampers disposal nappies and was quite content until Charlotte kept breaking out in an awful rash. It was red raw and looked like she has been slapped. Any time her nappy was off she would claw at it until her bum bled. I tried every nappy cream I could, finding nothing that worked. We even went to the doctors and tried all sorts of prescribed medication but still nothing worked. That's when someone suggested we try cloth.
At this point we thought it couldn't hurt, although I wasn't really sold on the idea of dealing with any poo. I liked disposables as I could just throw the nappy in the bin but I thought we had to give it a go and if it didn't work, we could always go back to disposables.
So I got in touch with my local lending library, Green Bum Babies, who were brilliant. She gave me all the information I needed, she was easy to talk to and organised a kit to meet my needs. All I needed to do was fill in a questionnaire and she did the rest. I told her I was interested in trying Baba&boo as I had heard good things and she made sure some were available for me to try.
A few weeks later, as arranged, she brought the kit around demonstrated how everything worked and told me what I needed to do. She included a variety of nappy types for me to try and left us to it, leaving her contact information if we needed anything or had any questions. From the moment we tried Baba&boo we were in love. The nappies fitted Charlotte beautifully and were so easy to use. All you had to do was fill the pocket with the appropriate inserts and adjust to the babies shape. Within a matter of days Charlotte's bum was clear and it was obvious she had an allergy to disposables.

- 2 medium nappy bags
- 2 mesh bags
- Nappy liners
- Choice of 20 nappies
- 40 microfibre inserts

When the kit arrived, it was brilliantly package and included an itemised list of what I ordered. I did notice one of my nappies was missing and I of course contacted the customer service. They responded very quickly, apologised and within a few days I had my missing nappy. Couldn't ask for a better service.
After using the kit for a few months, I am still sold on Baba&boo. Their nappies just grow with our daughter and still work as well as the day we received them. Since using them I would recommend them to anyone and plan to use them with any future children we have. The quality of the material used to lovely and you can tell it will last. It look comfortable and works well no matter what you need to fill the pocket with making it work for any family.
I have also tried their Charcoal buster, after using it a few times I don't find any improvements to the absorbency. I feel that the microfibre supplied with the nappy works extremely well and cannot say I notice any difference when Charcoal is used.
With my daughters nappies, I personally find that a Baba&boo microfibre and another brands thick bamboo works very well and Charlotte stays very dry.
