Out of all the reusable nappy brands the one that most people will have heard of is Bambino Mio. They are the leading brand of reusable nappies and accessories worldwide and their availability in many high street shops and supermarkets as well as online means that most cloth bum families have at least one of their adorable award-winning nappies in their fluffy stash.
The Bambino Mio Miosolo nappy is an all-in-one reusable nappy designed to fit from birth-to-potty. It comes in a range of gorgeous colours and prints, such as the Peppermint Cream and Elephant Parade nappies we were sent to try. It has a soft absorbent inner, a stay-dry layer to keep moisture away from your baby’s skin and a waterproof outer layer to prevent leaks. It has adjustable snaps on the rise so that the size can be changed to fit most babies from birth right through to potty training.
The nappy has a long, soft, absorbent core which is inserted into the pocket of the nappy, then you simply use the Velcro tabs to secure the nappy in place in exactly the same way you would with a disposable nappy. You can use a liner in the nappy if you wish, such as Bambino Mio Mioliners which are my go-to liners as they don’t disintegrate or tear when wet like some other brands I’ve tried, and you can also pop in a Mioboost booster for using at night or if you have a particularly heavy wetter.
Bambino Mio Miosolo nappies are incredibly soft and stretchy and even after several 60 degree washes they have stayed soft and comfortable. We’ve not seen any fading to the Velcro or prints, just the Bambino Mio label. The nappy outer has stayed as bright and vivid as when they first arrived. They are extremely quick to dry which is especially important for us as we line-dry our laundry and nappies rather than tumble-dry.
In my experience, no onesize nappy has fit either of my babies from birth but once they have put on a bit of weight and, more importantly, filled out in the thighs the nappies have fitted when adjusted to the smallest setting. On the other hand, the Miosolo is the only onesize nappy that will last until potty training with Little N, as they are the only ones that he has not yet outgrown!
They have the slimmest fit out of all the all-in-one nappies we have tried yet in my opinion they are also the most absorbent lasting a good 2-3 hours before I need to change. I have never experienced a leak from a Miosolo which is not something I can say for some other nappies, including disposables! They have quickly become the nappies that I reach for first, especially when we are going out for the day as I know they are reliable and won’t spring a leak if Little N or Baby J fall asleep unexpectedly.
I’m often asked for reusable nappy advice and Bambino Mio are the brand I tend to recommend first because I know they are reliable. Their all-in-one Miosolo will fit most babies and toddlers comfortably and their two-piece Miosoft nappies are perfect for newborn babies. Their range is jam-packed with all the nappy accessories you could ever need as well as potty training and swimming accessories, and recently they have brought out a range of beautiful Swaddling Blankets too!
