Bambino Mio are probably one of the bigger names in the real nappy game. They have two versions of birth to potty nappies; one version is an all-in-one nappy and the other is a nappy plus a wrap. The Miosolo is the all-in-one variation. These retail for £15.99 although you may find discounts if you buy in bulk. I got mine from Aldi baby events and they were around the £9.99 mark. If you want a booster for extra absorption then you must buy these separately. The brand also sells its own nappy detergent and liners.
The Miosolo comes in lots of cute patterns so you are spoilt for choice. The nappy comes with a waterproof outer layer which encases an absorbent core. You are able to put a booster into the nappy if you need extra absorption. There are fold back laundry tabs so they don’t get tangled in the wash. There are three sets of poppers on the front of the nappy so you can adjust the fit for smaller babies. Nappies are held together with Velcro so the fit around the belly is adjustable.
These nappies are very easy to use. I use biodegradable liners and if I have time I pre-line and prepare the nappies so when it comes to changing time I can just put the clean nappy on instead of fiddling around folding the liner.
The fit is fairly slim and I haven’t had any trouble fitting any clothes over the Miosolo. Saying that, I haven’t used any boosters so not sure how much bulkier they could get. As with any all-in-one nappy, you need to wait until baby is around 10lbs because the nappy may be a tad too big. The annoying part is the pull out core which is slightly too long if you make the nappy shorter using the poppers. This means there is a small bulge at either end of the nappy which needs to be tucked in or you may get some leaking at the top.
Washing is easy as you just stick the laundry tabs over and chuck the nappy into your bag or bucket ready for wash day. Drying time is good because you can pull out the inner core and the whole nappy dries fairly quickly.
In conclusion the Miosolo has been my favourite nappy to use so far. They are easy to put on, fit well, and drying time is reasonable. I’d recommend having ten to fifteen nappies assuming you wash every other day. You can sometimes do a bulk buy and get a good deal so they are also pretty good value for money.
