“Lovekins nappies are super soft on both the outside and inside. They are a slimmer fit than normal nappies which makes for a much more slim line under clothes. They also have lovely thick waist bands to ensure they will never cut in.
These nappies are very absorbent and super soft. Like most nappies, they do have a tendency to sag when full. This normally is only a cosmetic thing, however because these nappies are quite so soft, this meant that the weight of the liquid could move the nappy to the side when my 19 month old son was asleep, which caused a couple of leaks. (He is a very active sleeper and still feeds all night, so he is definitely an extreme scenario.) These worked beautifully during the day though. I don’t believe you would have any issues with leaks with these nappies unless you had an older child who was a very active sleeper.
Lovekins nappies are available in newborn sizes and are a beautifully soft nappy to use on newborn skin.”
“Lovekins nappies are the softest nappies I have tried. They are lightweight and thin (not overly bulky like some nappies can be). Really soft and comfortable waist band and legs leaving no marks on bub. I like that they have a wetness indicator as they were so soft I couldn’t feel if they had to be changed! The name on the front was helpful for late night changes. I found they slid to the side a bit during the day due to the softness but we had no leaks. I also thought the absorbency wasn’t as good as I would like due to the thinness (so I kept changing them too often) but I did an absorbency test and it was much higher than I expected! A soft, kind to baby’s bottom nappy

“Wrapping this nappy around my baby’s bottom is like wrapping him up in a cloud. I’ve never felt anything so soft, so it’s no surprise that it’s made with cotton. And I LOVE that the nappy is all-white and toxic dye-free. Tiny babies really don’t need patterns, cartoon characters and branding all over their bums, do they? The nappy is so soft that it leaves no imprints in his skin. I can imagine he is very comfortable in it. We’ve had zero leaks during the day however one nappy won’t make it thru the entire night, even when we make it thru with only one night feed. But that’s ok, I change it when I feed him.”
“I received excellent feedback for Lovekin’s non-toxic nappies. Free from chlorine, fragrances & toxic dyes, these non-toxic highly absorbent nappies are super thin & keep baby dry for longer. Made from Australian grown cotton & made with super absorbent outer & inner layers that are breathable & so soft, the feedback was fantastic. No leaks, no signs of discomfort & they are thin so there is no bulky nappies.”
“Great absorbency, lasted overnight and extremely soft.”
