Pikapu Newborn Cloth Nappies Review

I started using the Pikapu Newborn Nappies when my baby was a few weeks old. This was about when they first came out. They are available in 3 colours white, lavender and baby blue and are designed to fit from 2 to 6kg.Pikapu Blue Newborn Nappy

My son was born at 3.77kg so I thought I would not have long to use them. How wrong was I! He didn’t start putting weight on until he was almost 5 months old. He is now 8 months and we are still using our Pikapu Newborn Nappies. At 8 months and just over 7kgs, they do require one of the newborn inserts to prevent leaks but they are still going strong.

These nappies are really easy to use. Just put baby on the nappy and velcro closed. There is no snapping required. I just put one insert under the all in onePikapu Lavender Newborn Nappy insert that is attached to the nappy, to increase the absorbency.

I have been using these a couple of times a week for the last 8 months and they are still in great condition. The only problem I have is that the laundry tabs are fluffy and do not hold as well any more. The rest of the nappy- elastic, velcro etc is perfect.    

For $22.95 RRP I think they are great value and while most children won’t get as much wear out of them as mine has, look after them correctly and they should be in a good enough condition to store for a future child or to sell second hand.

I would recommend these for anyone starting out with cloth nappies for their newborn. The microfleece they are made from means they dry quickly, a PUL outer makes them waterproof and the leg gussets really help to prevent any leaks or explosions.


  1. I love the adjustable poppers on this nappy. It makes changing the nappy as they grow so much easier.
