Product Review: Simplee by Nuggles

IMG_4800.JPG

Every once in a while on the blog I like to feature products that I really love.  My focus for them is that they are eco friendly, ethical, and I especially love it when they are made by Canadian companies.  In this case I am even happier to share a product from a company in my own town!  

Nuggles is a cloth diapering company based in Kamloops, BC.  The diapers are designed by moms, and they create all their own prints (I especially like the "Outdoorable", "Up and Away", and "Isbjorn" prints), and the solid colours they choose are really beautiful as well.  The diaper I am reviewing here is called the Simplee.  It's a one size, "all in two" that can also function as a pocket diaper, and it is made from bamboo, micro fleece, and TPU.  

There are lots of features in this diaper that make it extremely user friendly.  You can either layer the bamboo inserts on top of the diaper and change them out for new ones when you need to, or you can stuff them underneath the micro fleece and use it more as a pocket diaper.  If you do the former, it's much cheaper as you don't need to buy as many covers.  Nuggles sells the liners separately.  If you do the latter it's a simplified process, and typically easier for babysitters, daycare workers, or other family members who are not quite as into cloth diapers.  It's totally up to you how you use them, but having all the options is really great.

The pictures below show a few of the other features that make these diapers so user friendly.  The liners/boosters have a convenient hidden snap to keep them in place but they also come apart fairly easily in the washing machine so you don't have to worry about getting messy.  

The rise snaps and waist snaps have so many different options to fit all sizes of babies.  This one diaper goes from most 8 - 40 lbs babies!  Buying a one size fit diaper saves so much money since you're only buying one size of diaper for the entire time your child needs diapers.  We still aren't on the largest setting and Little Forager is almost two!

The other feature that I am most happy about are the hip snaps.  There are these extra snaps at the hips of the diaper that help hold the wings up.  We've had some trouble with other diapers in that way and it's so nice not to worry about it!  I hope that this is something Nuggles might consider including on their Tuck-Wrap-Go covers as well.  

Our other favourite thing about the Simplee is how easy it is to take on the go.  Most cloth diapers are much less scary to take on trips and outings than you would think (read my previous post about cloth diapering on a road trip for more information about that), but this one makes it all even easier.  We took Little Forager to the beach and changed him while he was standing up in the sand and it only took a few seconds.  

The other great thing about all of this is that I have a discount I get to share with all my readers for 10% off all your purchases at Nuggles.  Click this link to get your discount!
