Bimbles QD (Quick Dry)
First-size, fleece-lined shaped nappy by Easy
Peasy Nappies. Price £6.25
This is a very cute little nappy from Easy Peasy Nappies ideal for newborn
or premature babies. It gives a neat trim fit on even very little babies
and fits well under cute newborn clothing. The height of the nappy can
be reduced by folding the front down and outwards and the wings cross
over each other to make the waist as small as necessary. The nappy can
be fastened with a Nappi Nippa or simply held in place with a snug-fitting
wrap. Bimbles QD are made from a single layer of 90% cotton long-loop
terry fabric, with a second strip of terry in the middle of the nappy,
where more absorbency is needed. There is a layer of the softest white
fleece lining the whole nappy to keep baby's skin dry. The fleece layer
and the terry layer form a 'pocket' into which an attached fold out booster
is inserted. The booster is made from two layers of terry so that once
it is in place there is a total of four layers of terry where it is needed
most. Gentle covered elastic at the back of the waist and at the legs
gives a comfortable but snug fit to ensure good containment. Made in the
The attached booster of the Bimble QD is pulled out to
launder, making cleaning more efficient and speeding up the drying time.
Ideal to allow a quick turnaround of your nappies at a time when you
are likley to be using a lot of nappies per day. If you prefer to have
cotton next to your baby's skin rather than the polyester fleece the
nappy can simply be reversed so that the fleece is on the outside and
the nappy can be held in place by a snug fitting wrap (Nappi Nippas
will not grip onto fleece). See below for recommended wraps.
The Bimble QD will fit from around birth until around 15lb (6.8Kg),
so depending on your baby's build it will last up until your baby is
somewhere between 3 and 6 months old in our opinion (based on UK weight
centile charts) . The wings allow good adjustability to fit babies of
different shapes and sizes. The nappy absorbency can easily be increased
if necessary toward the end of the weight range by placing boosters
into the pocket.
Bimbles make an ideal first nappy for those who want to
move on to a 'one-size' nappy but have a small baby or want to avoid
eccessive bulk on a tiny baby.
It is suggested that this nappy, once outgrown, can be
used to boost absorbency of other shaped nappies or pocket nappies.
Whilst they can be used like this, they do not make the trimmest boosters
however, due to their elasticated waist and legs causing them to 'bunch
Available in white terry with a white fleece inner only.
Advantages & disadvantages compared
with other small shaped nappies: Bimbles give a trim neat fit on newborns,
are quick to dry, good value for money. It is very similar to the Diddy
Diaper, but offers the attached stay-dry fleece layer and is quicker
drying due to the attached pull-out booster. Very cute looking too!
What else will I need? You
may choose to use a Nappi Nippa
with this nappy, though a close fitting wrap should hold it in place
for a newborn. You will need a wrap with Bimbles (see below for
suggestions). You may need a booster to increase absorbency and you
may wish to use a nappy liner.

Re-sale value Unknown as yet as this nappy

nappies so re-sale value of the Bimble QD may be quite good.
