Review: Poopsy Daisy Cuddlenights

Description: The Poopsy Daisy Cuddlenights nappy consists of a minky exterior, hidden softshell layer and cotton velour interior lining*. It comes with a double petal hemp/cotton snap-in insert, full size booster and T-panel booster (backed with softshell) with the option to add additional boosters if you have a heavy wetter. The top insert is topped with minky in the same print as the outer. The nappy features a fold down rise which enables you to adjust the fit to your baby and fastens with snaps around the waist. There are three snaps on each wing as well as two crossover snap settings to make the waist smaller for a younger baby. The version I tested is serged (overlocked), but you can also select a turned and topstitched finish. You also get to select snap, inner & stitching colour when you buy these nappies via pre-order.

* This can be substituted with organic bamboo velour or plush fleece

First impressions:  Cuddlenights is a very apt name for this nappy as the minky exterior and velour/minky inner is super cuddly! It is loaded with inserts and super squishy. The print selections are always on point and will vary according to what is currently available. My son is obsessed with The Gruffalo, so of course I had to jump at this print. This nappy is neatly made and I love that the WAHM takes extra time to ensure her clients are happy with bum placements. It's these small details that make the difference when you are splurging on a custom made item. 

Ease of use: This is a one-step night solution, which makes the bedtime routine just that little bit easier. Especially when you have a toddler. Once all the inserts are snapped in, it's pretty much just snap and go with no need for a cover or extra boosting (unless of course you are blessed with a super heavy wetter). Used nappies can be put directly in into your nappy bucket as is, or you can choose to unsnap the inserts. Unsnapping the inserts greatly reduces drying time, however the inserts do take a while to dry. This is pretty typical for natural fibres though. 

Fit: These are definitely on the bulkier side, though bulk is pretty much part of the package with night time solutions, especially one-step ones.  We get a lovely fit on my son, with room to grow still at 16+kg. It is pictured in these photos with all of the inserts snapped in. Just a note that you cannot snap the t-booster in when using the fold-down rise. Most younger babies requiring the fold-down rise won't need the t-booster though. Similar to the Daydreamz, this seems to be a slightly bigger cut vs the regular hybrid or AI3, no doubt to accommodate the additional inserts. 

Value for money: If you are looking for a budget option, this is probably not the nappy for you. But if you're looking for a quality, custom made item that delivers in terms of look. fabrics used, fit and absorbency, you will be very satisfied with the money spent on this nappy.

Performance: Okay so the nappy looks great and is a one-step solution, but how does it deliver in terms of function? Needless to say my light wetter is no match for this nappy. From my absorbency tests the entire nappy absorbs a whopping 670ml - this means the shell is also wet on the outside though and assumes you use a cover. This makes it suitable for even extreme heavy wetters! If you go coverless, the nappy will absorb roughly 450ml and will be suitable for medium to heavy wetters

Overall impression: The print and cuddle-factor of this nappy makes it a total winner in our house. We can easily go coverless with it and I love that it's a grab-and-go night time solution. It would be a great option to try if you have a heavier wetter and are struggling to find night nappies that will hold up.

While I aim to provide detailed, objective reviews of all the diapers that I've used, please bear in mind that this is my opinion and that every mom has her own preferences and every baby is built differently. So what works well for me and J, might not necessarily work well for you and your baby. J weighed 16.3kg and was 103cm tall when these photos were taken.
