How comfy is your baby’s bum? Moonys review.

How comfy is your baby’s bum? Moonys review.

I have a love hate relationship with nappies. They are essential in my life, having two small babies we get through the things like they are going out of fashion. I love the ease of a disposable nappy but also eagerly await the day I change the last pooy bum (DISCLAIMER – I am not wishing my children’s lives away, it is just something I doubt I’ll miss). Anyway we have tried them all in search of a dry, comfy, peachy bum for the babies…or so I thought. That was until I was contacted on behalf of Moonys, who produce nappies for the Japenese market and asked if I would like to review them. I did umm and aaah over this but decided that ultimately my blog is largely based around my life with the two little cherubs and a large part of that day to day life, is changing nappies, buying the nappies, emptying the bin daily which stinks of nappies. I fear that actually a large portion of my day somehow involves a nappy, sad times ey. My point is however this product is really rather relevant to my life at the moment (DISCLAIMER – Cold Sauvigan Blanc is also really rather relevant to my life, see my Twitter/Instagram and should anyone require a product review for the same I will happily oblige). Anyway I agreed to review said nappies.

I think I might be lying if I said I had high hopes – I am not to sure why Japan is a very sophisticated, modern and wealthy country, I mean have you seen the technology? It is also home to the toilet come bum wash, which are commonplace public toilets (seriously).

Said toilet/bidet

Needless to say these are a far cry from our public toilets. My point being, this is clearly a country that takes comfort and hygiene of the nether regions rather seriously. So it would stand to reason the same should apply to their little angels no?

Well folks I am delighted to say that the manufacturers of Moony’s do indeed put as much love and attention into the little ones behinds as the those who developed the public toilet bidet contraption. Said nappies are soft (very soft), comfortable (by my best guess anyway, they didn’t fit me), flexible, thin and importantly, absorbent, basically all the things you look for in a nappy. We did not experience any leakages, or nasty stained vests during our trial period of 84 nappies. In addition to this checklist they have a smart pull tab, that doesn’t all stick to the nappy but leaves a bit of the tab to actually pull – genius, it’s the little things and all that.

Now we normally get our nappies from a well known ‘low cost’ supermarket and I am sure as hell not about to start knocking them, I mean under £6 for 84 nappies! But there was a notable difference, they were softer, less rigid and didn’t sag between your little ones legs when they started to get full. Now my little boy isn’t walking yet but I have noticed said saggy nappy situ on my little girl and it looks like a right pain trying to walk with a saggy crotch, so a nappy that avoids this is very welcome. They are also hypo-allergenic so great for those who have a sensitive botty. The sudocreme application has actual slowed up a little since using these.  They also have a wetness indicator, oh and Winnie the Pooh on them, which I know doesn’t contribute toward their functionality but I liked it and worth a mention nonetheless.

All in all I would without doubt recommend these nappies. I have actually been spreading the word amongst my mummy friends. I would go as far as to say that they rival to biggest brands here in the UK. BUT and, I am sorry to have to say it, the one thing that I cannot praise is the price. The nappies are currently only available online and a pack of 84  (for weights 4-8kg) will set you back some £22.50. I know we’re not breaking the bank here but when you have more than one bum to cover it would add up. As much as nappies can be ‘worth it’ these really are and there is definitely merit in the saying ‘you get what you pay for’ but, regrettably, I can see how the price could be a stumbling block.

However if you cant put a price on your little loves comfy bum then I couldn’t recommend these more. You can find these nappies using the below links. They come in a variety of sizes from newborn to 14kg. The company also produce Merries (designed for girls) and G.OON nappies, the latter of which are suitable for children up to 20kg

So what do you think? Have you tried see nappies? Would you? Would the price put you off? If love to hear from you.

    I was ready to consider trying these until you mentioned the price! Appallingly high in comparison to UK competition and I am really happy with the nappies I use but just liked that it had a wetness indicator on. A useful addition. A shame.
    Glad tou trialled them though x

      Yes it is a shame isn’t, I’m running a giveaway so can always try you luck. Thanks for your comment lovey xx

    Oh I was looking forward to this post but now I’ve just remembered that I went to the supermarket earlier to buy nappies and I didn’t buy any sodding nappies!! Aaargh!
    That aside, these do sound fab. Hmm a shame about the price at the moment but maybe they’ll find a way to bring that down at some point #KCACOLS

      Yea the price is certainly the stumbling block, such a shame. Thanks for your comment xx

    I am on a constant search for nappies that don’t leak. I can’t tell you how many different types we have tried but finally settled on resuable, washable nappies. Nappy rash is now a thing of the past so I’m sure there were chemicals in the disposable nappies that were contributing to it. They aren’t always so absorbent though and you do have to change more regularly I find. These nappies do sound really great and you’ve done a lovely job reviewing them. It’s a shame about the price though – I imagine its the shipping costs that make them so expensive? Thanks so much for sharing your review and linking up with us for the first week of #fortheloveofBLOG. Really great to have you – I hope you can link up again next week! x #fortheloveofBLOG

      Interesting point, I had never thought about the chemicals in the nappies contributing toward nappy rash. I must say Iv never used reusable ones, they do always sound like a good idea though and people do rave about them! Thanks for your comment xx

    I was so impressed with these when I reviewed them a while back – we’ve tried all the UK brands and they beat them easily on everything except price! x #KCACOLS

      Yes that’s only problem really isn’t it, otherwise couldn’t really fault them.

    I was asked to review these too. They sound really promising but with two in nappies here I think it would break the bank – I also use the same, I suspect, low cost supermarket, and I have to say I am generally happy with them. Maybe when Moonys start to break the uk markey the price may come down though – definitely something to look out for as they do sound good. Thanks for linking with #KCACOLS. I hopw you come back next Sunday.

    I think I’ve read a review about these nappies in the past, but the price knocked me back and I didn’t even bother looking at it. To be honest I’m very stingy with my money and I’m quite happy with my Aldi’s Mamia ones. However reading this review and seeing there are others in the comments who agree does make me think again. I don’t think I would ever buy them because I wouldn’t want to try them and be downcast over the fact that I wouldnt be able to get them again. I also think that my babe’s bot would then grow a sensitivity to other nappies in the process of using these as it has happened with different nappy creams and I can’t deal with that if she’s fine right now.
    Maybe the more people who talk about them the more Japan and UK will strike a deal and it’ll be a better price!! #yeahright #KCACOLS

      Hmm good point I hadn’t thought about the little ones getting used to the sensitivity. It is a shame about the price. I too was happy with the nappies I was using, been doing so for so long, but these did open my eyes a little. Thanks for your comment xx

    Oh, my goodness, that is FAR to expensive for a poo holder! Haha, seriously.
    We spent $300 USD on cloth diapers when I was 6 months pregnant. He’s now 13 months old and, besides the original investment, we have dropped less than $20 on diapers (when we went on holiday). It really is sad that a good quality diaper is so expensive. #KCACOLS

      Ha were the cloth diapers worth it at least? I’m with you a like a cheap one (our regular brand are very inexpensive lol) but if I were the extravagant type these would be a good bet. Thanks for your comment lovey xx

    Now that nappies are a thing of the past for me it’s frightening to see just how expensive they can be. However, I do remember when I had my first that I was so chuffed at being a mum that I did splash out for things thinking that in some cases I was more than happy to pay over the odds, if I thought there was a big difference in quality. Mind you, I did also think I was going to be super green and only use cloth nappies and save the environment! I remember the look on my mums face….the ‘knowing’ look on my mums face I should say! Great review of the product:)

      Haha love that, mum’s know best. Did you stick it out with the cloth nappies? Yes with my first I was a little OTT with some thighs and for the first few months you wouldn’t catch her newborn bum in anything but a pricey pampers nappy. As my hormonal new mum syndrome faded (and my mat pay dwindled lol) I turned to the cheap and cheerful brand and haven’t really looked back. Thanks for you comment xx

        No, I tried the terry towling nappy once and then the realisation came to me that it was never going to happen. I went for the easy way out. Right or wrong it was an instant decision when I saw the reality:)

    This is a great review. Sorry it’s taken till now to get to you! I do think the price would put me off buying these too. For someone that puts there littleones bum in a washable nappy from time to time comfort isn’t alwasy on my mind either! #triballove

    Woah, that price brought a tear to my eye! I do love japan though! Would love to return one day. Perhaps the nappies are cheaper to purchase over there!
