Is your bot comfy?
Nappies. They are the bain marie of my life.
Both my younger children are in nappies. The 20 month old because she is 20 months old (although she is showing signs of readiness to toilet train, hooray!). The nearly 4 year old because he has his own set of challenges to contend with.
It can be a pretty big expense in our grocery budget although I try to buy in bulk when I can. When I was offered the chance to try out Comfy Bots from Coles I was hardly going to say no. Free nappies are free nappies, even though I didn't hold terribly high hopes of them coping with my super-wetter boy.
To my surprise, they are pretty great actually! He has been wearing them both during the day and overnight and we've not had any issues with leakage at all. We do occasionally have that issue with night nappies so I was a bit impressed on that count. They are also quite a bit cheaper than other brands and the fit is good on him as well (he is tall and quite lean for his age). We received the toddler size for Little Miss Thing and I am happy with the fit for her as well. She has a small waist and muscly thighs therefore explosions go straight up the back usually, but it hasn't been an issue so far.
Since he was a babe my Little Mate has had very sensitive skin and been prone to nappy rash so I was a little wary on that count. He has had quite nasty reactions to other nappies and we've pretty much stuck with one brand since he was very little. It was another pleasant surprise to find these caused no skin irritation either.
Are you keen to try some for your small person?
I have a month's supply to give away (so you can spend that nappy money on chocolate yes?) as well as a $100 Coles gift card! Try them out and see how they compare for yourself!
To enter simply use the form below and leave a comment telling me what you would spend your savings on if you didn't have to buy nappies.

We received some Comfy Bots nappies for the purpose of this review. An admin fee was paid as per our disclosure policy. As always, opinions are my own and I am grateful to not have to buy nappies this week.
