Gecko Clothing Review * Plus GIVEAWAY! *

Gecko Header

After being asked to do a review on Gecko clothing I naturally took a look over their website. Having never heard of the small brand before, I wanted to know more! Gecko is a family business, the “spawn” (!) of Emma and Ryan Davidson, which as they have hilariously put it, “is to test the true boundaries of marriage.” Both Emma and Ryan had previously lived in North Wales and share a love of the outdoors and a good challenge. Originally when starting the business Emma and Ryan focused on adults clothes, however slowly they are growing their dream of making Gecko a brand that covers kids and adults clothes.

New TotsBots Star, complete with new prints too! **PLUS GIVEAWAY**

Blog header star
Ok, so we are not going to lie to you. After you have read this post today, you will be amazed, astonished, super excited and short of some money because you will NEED to buy TotsBots latest launch. When we say that it is amazing, you have to believe us, It. Is. Amazing!

There’s a lot to take in, including *squeal* NEW PRINTS, but before we get to that, we simply must tell you about the new TotsBots Easyfit Star.
If you are already an Easyfit fan, then you might as well start deciding how many you can justify buying now, because if you thought the Easyfit V4 was good, the Easyfit Star is a million times more fluff’mazing! As of now it will be replacing the Easyfit V4 so say goodbye to the old and a big HELLO to the new…

Named the star, because it really is a star nappy, TotsBots have decided to move away from naming nappies by numbers, and after reading below, I’m sure you’ll agree that the name Easyfit Star is very fitting indeed! This nappy boasts out of this world performance, and we have to say, we couldn’t agree more!

So what is new then? At first glance, you will look and think it looks just like an Easyfit V4, and that’s true, as it has kept the same base. From the outside the first change that will jump out at you is the lack of stitching around the legs, so lets start with that.

sStar RP7

 

As you can see from the photos above, the Easyfit Star now has no stitching around the legs, to ensure there are NO stitch related wicking leaks. The material has been cleverly stitched so that once the nappy is on the baby, it almost turns in, creating a secure and comfortable fit around babies legs, and leaving no insides visible on the outside. This is due to a clever little bit of stitching at the top.
Not only this, but should you ever need to replace your elastic, it can now be conveniently located on the inside of the pocket, making it simple to remove.

The PUL is now thicker than previous TotsBots Nappies to improve the nappy all round, ensuring its tougher and lasts as long as it can!

When opening the nappy, you can see that there is now a wider front panel, ensuring a better fit on a larger rise, but also preventing the tabs from coming in to contact with babies skin and leaving a gap without being covered by PUL when on the largest rise setting. This not only makes it more comfortable for baby, but also ensures fit is tip top, making it a water proof tummy zone. It also makes it much easier to put on baby.

There is also a new ultra absorbent bamboo core. Microfibre is now sandwiched inside two layers of bamboo, which not only has exceptional absorbancy but also makes this nappy the slimmest fitting AIO nappy. There is a clear visible difference between the Easyfit V4 and Easyfit Star when on the bum.
There is also no snap in part to the insert like the previous Easyfit V4 now too!

Saving the BEST new feature to last, we have to tell you about the new no escape buffer. If you are skeptical of magic, then you will be converted to a believer after watching our instagram video of this miracle in action.

sStar RP9

 

The no escape buffer is now made of a new material that TotsBots have invested a lot of time in. After extensive research they decided to replace it with a hyrdrophobic material, which is not made from natural fibres. This new material simply filters any liquid straight to the bamboo core and is quite mesmerising to watch! It literally runs straight from the buffer onto the bamboo inner, leaving no residue on the buffer at all, meaning even after contact with liquids, this part of the nappy stays COMPLETELY dry. This amazing material is also stain resistant.

So there you have it, not a single thing has been missed by TotsBots, who have ticked all the boxes when it comes to creating an unbeatable nappy.

New Petit Lulu Nappies **And GIVEAWAY!**

Here at Fill Your Pants and The Nappy Gurus, we are always on the look out for fabulous new brands that we think all you fluffy addicts will love! After taking a look over Petit Lulu we fell in love with their unique designs and vast range of brilliant prints

So who are Petit Lulu?
If you have never heard of Petit Lulu before, it’s because they are fairly new to the cloth world, especially over here in the UK.
The company is based in Czech Republic and owned by Lucie, who is a mum to a three year old and expecting her second baby soon! Before going into the world of cloth, Lucie was a psychotherapist, however upon expecting her son she decided to sew her own cloth nappy to try out, all be it Lucie admits she felt it was a small miracle she was able to do so with no previous experience! After sharing her sewing success with other mums, she was soon asked if she could make her nappies for them too, which kick started her fluffy business. After taking on employees to help her after her first year, Petit Lulu grew as a business and today now has a team of 14 members and has just won an award as the second best company in the Czech North Region!

Petit Lulus ethics are to offer their customers nappies from the highest quality European materials with all the safety certifications for children under 3 years old. They pride themselves on differing from other companies by special designs and original look.

Lets take a look over the Petit Lulu range!

The Snap In One Complete (SIO) nappy was reviewed by one of our lovely

Nappy Gurus Hazel-Ann Johnson.

*Hazel-Ann Johnson*

“This nappy is first of all – super duper cute! The pony print we had to trial was really fun and happy. 

There are different soaker pads so absorbency can be highly customised. And they attach with poppers which is great for helping everything stay in place. Putting it on the bum, it’s soft leg cuffs are really nice– sometimes the leg cuffs on nappies have left red marks on my babies, but these are fleece.  My daughter is 5.5 months and we had it on the smallest rise snaps. It’s not the slimmest nappy but it’s certainly not the most bulky.  The Velcro could be more user friendly if one side had a longer length on one of the tab tops. But it goes small enough for us. 
We left the nappy on for 4 hours and it had not compressed or leaked. I was really happy with this & that was with only the large soaker in. The second time we tried it we left it on for 3 hours and then little miss pooped. Unfortunately the poop did escape out the side of one leg & we ended up with a yellow stain on her tights. She has not started solids, so we are still in the bright yellow milk poop explosion days! I feel that this is due to the soft leg cuffs & single gusset. 

Overall we really liked the nappy , and think once we get past the newborn poop days that it will be even better.”




RRP: £16.95

 The Born To Potty Nappy was reviewed by another one of our lovely Gurus Susan Gerrard.
*Susan Gerrard*

These will be referred to as Bamboo Fitteds at FYP and TNG! Available in One Size and Newborn, snaps and hook and loop.

“Thoughts: seems to perform pretty similarly to a bamboozle stretch in terms of absorbency, allowing for the fact that it only got 1 prewash. Containment wise we didn’t have any major events to test it but I think that the frilly edges might interfere a bit with getting a snug fit between nappy and wrap if this was being used with a smaller baby, who was still just being breastfed, especially. I’m not the biggest fan in the world of that type of finish (frills / serged edge) on a fitted. It makes the seams a bit bulkier and harder to get a neat fit with the wrap.
 

The nappy was pretty slim for a fitted and the print cute – though a bit girly for us! – so it seemed a shame to cover it with a wrap really. We used a Blueberry Coverall over it which seemed fine. Getting the poppers done up was a bit fiddly – I’m used to fitteds being velcro, which compensates for having to do up 2 layers of nappy when fighting a very wriggly 9mo, but I noticed on the packaging that there is a velcro version too which I think I would prefer. When I came to take the nappy off it wasn’t saturated, but the front didn’t look great – the flaps has sort of folded back on themselves either side of the poppers.

I can see people going for these as a cute alternative to Little Lambs/TotsBots Stretchies, and some people who hate velcro would like the poppers option too. We like fitteds a lot and have definitely spent more time using them than any other type of nappy by far as I love how reliable they are – hold loads and bombproof usually!”

Susan also noted that the drying time on this nappy was long, however as it is made from Bamboo we can expect it not to be quick drying, as the Little Lamb and TotsBots Stretchies are the same!

“After testing it out overnight, it worked pretty much the same as our usual bamboozle stretch – just took a bit more wrestling to get the poppers done up than the velcro! I think it was probably a bit more saturated then the TotsBots Stretchy normally is but it held up with the same amount of boosting as usual.”

Also Available in One Size and Extra Large
The Petit Lulu cover comes as hook and loop, which sits perfectly within our cover range available with prints since Blueberry discontinued their Coveralls with hook and loop last year.
With fleece leg cuffs (fleece hem) the same as SIO nappy, it offers a soft comfort on babies legs. With easy to use velcro and a breathable layer of PUL it is certainly one to add to your stash!
RRP: £12.95
