New Zealand made cloth diapers

< read all 2 reviews

Breathable, no leaks, luxe cloth diaper

  • Dec 18, 2010

If you asked me which full stash of cloth diapers I would buy if money was no object, I would say the Ecobubs Wool Pocket Nappy. This is quite simply the best diaper I have ever tried on our baby, hands down. I've always said that there is no such thing as the best cloth diaper because they fit all babies differently. While that's still true, now I'm not so sure! The Ecobubs diaper is the creme de la creme among cloth diapers. This wool pocket diaper is made in New Zealand and we are thankful to have been sent one to review. 

Ease of use: As with all pocket diapers, this one is fairly easy to use. Just stuff it and you're ready to go. There are three snap settings for each size diaper that are easy to use and you don't need a manual. The inserts are very easy to wash and the diaper itself needs just a little bit of special care. It cannot be washed at a temperature above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and you need to take care for it not to come in contact with Velcro. I have actually been washing the diaper by hand with some Charlie's Soap because I wasn't sure what the temperature is in my hot water wash. Today I accidentally threw it in the hot wash with the rest and it survived just fine!

Quality & Value: The highest quality diaper ever made? Quite possibly. The best value? Well, it depends on how you look at it and on your budget. Since each diaper costs $32.50 and comes in three sizes, it is not for everyone. If money is not an issue or if you need a few bullet proof nighttime diapers, you can't go wrong with Ecobubs. If you are planning on more than one baby, these will withstand rigorous use and will still look great in the end even if you'll have ten little ones. They also offer the Tangy Apple Day Nappy as a more economical daytime diaper option (not wool) for $25.50 each. 

How is this green: Not only is cloth diapering good for the environment, it is a lot healthier than wearing plastic for your little one. Ecobubs goes above and beyond though with the wool diaper. Wool is sustainable because it is renewable. It also has some inherently incredible properties such as stain and odor resistance, it is breathable, and antimicrobial. 

Fit & Design: This diaper is so luxurious! I love the wool blend cover, as soon as I saw it I almost wanted to put it on myself! I would say that the average pocket diaper is like a Honda Accord and this one is a BMW X6 (with bulletproof windows). The large is still a little big on my 23 month, 22 pound daughter, it looks great nonetheless. What I really love is the light elastic at the waist, which means she can take these off herself since we're starting official potty training. We used it for both daytime with one insert and night time with two. It is quite trim with one insert and absorbed a lot over four hours, didn't leak. I trusted it enough to leave my daughter in Ecobubs with my mother while my husband and I went out on a date. Then I tried it for night time and I love it! It looked like she could sleep for another ten hours in it no problem! I also like the design of the stripe wool 

About the Company: Ecobubs was started by moms who really wanted the best cloth diaper for their little ones and to have it made locally in New Zealand.

Who Would You Recommend this to? This is the one for parents looking for a leakproof night time diaper for their babies. For toddlers it can help transition into potty training. Great for a baby shower present.

This diaper is amazing! There was a busy day I somehow skipped a diaper change and my toddler wore it for 8 hours during the day without a leak and a perfectly dry and clean bottom - the diaper was really heavy when I took it off! That was with just one insert :) So imagine how perfect it is at night with two.

About this website


Ecobubs was started by two sisters from New Zealand who wanted a leak-proof diaper that would stand the test of time and not fall apart and importantly would be made in New Zealand. Today, the wool pocket nappy has become one of the most popular cloth nappies both in New Zealand and overseas, with exports into Australia, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia.

Recently they've introduced the Tangy Apple Day Nappy giving an economical option for during the day for those that love the wool pocket nappy design and functionality but can't use the wool pockets full-time.   In New Zealand they sell direct online to customers which means  you get a quality product for a highly reasonable price.  Ecostore is the only retailer that stocks their nappies. 

They pride themselves on having all the wool-mix fabrics milled and all the products made right in New Zealand, keeping the carbon footprint low and best of all, employing New Zealanders - no China made here.
