In the Smyth Household we alternate between disposable and cloth nappies, depending on what we're doing, how much washing needs to be done, whether or not we have an inside toilet and whether or not someone (ahem, me) has been lax in assembling the cloth nappies.
When I was contacted and asked if I'd like to try Coles Comfy Bots Nappies with a giveaway for you guys, I jumped at the chance. Once we'd found a brand of nappies that worked (i.e. did not leak!) we've tended to stick to that one brand, although others are cheaper. Coles Comfy Bots Nappies had been on my 'Oh wow, that's a great price!' list for a long time, but there's not a Coles nearby here, so we'd never got the chance to try them.
For starters, let's talk about pack size. Millie fit the Toddler size, and there was 50 nappies in a pack, which retails at $12.00. That's 24 cents per nappy. Bargain! Other brands we use were anywhere from 30-48 cents per nappy.
I sent a pile of them to Daycare with Millie for her carer to use and give me some feedback while she was there, and had absolutely no complaints. We accidentally used one overnight, also with no leaks. The sizing is a little different to what we'd usually used so they were a bit bigger than the existing ones we were already using. I'm certain this helped with the dry overnights.
The nappies felt quite flimsy, but held up to 4-5 hours use with no problems and no wet rash, including one day when heavily pregnant Mummy forgot how long it had been between changes, and it was 6 hours. I know, I know. Call the Mummy Police. However, no wet rash and no leak throughs. I did find that a super heavy nappy seemed to break apart a little bit within the nappy lining itself, but not through the lining at all.
