Our review

Easy to wash and dry, Bambino Mio reusable nappies are a ‘pre-fold’ style nappy that last for more than one baby.

Bambino Mio pre-folds are rectangular flat nappies, made of several thick layers of cotton stitched at each end. You’ll need to fold them (there are a few different kinds of ‘fold’, depending on the size and gender of your child) and pop them inside a waterproof wrap. They’re a good budget option as they’re much cheaper than shaped nappies, and they’re also easy to wash and dry.

Bambino Mio sell waterproof wraps too, and while it’s a good idea to shop around to find wraps that you like, bear in mind that wraps with gusseted legs, like the Bambino Mio ones, work best with flat nappies as they hold them neatly in place.

What we love

These nappies are great value, and you only have to buy two different sizes if you’re using them from birth  - although you will need different sizes of wraps to go over them as your baby grows.

Bambino Mio nappies wash really well – even after very regular use with two babies, mine are still in great condition. They also dry very quickly, so you can save money on not having to tumble dry.

These nappies are versatile – as well as using them in standard nappy wraps, you could use them to stuff pocket nappies. I even use mine as mini changing mats when I’m out and about, and put them under my eldest child’s bed sheet to soak up night-time accidents!

What to watch out for

While pre-folds are great at soaking up wee, I find that they sometimes let poo out of the sides of the nappy, which doesn’t happen so much with fitted nappies that are elasticated around the legs. They’re also a little bit fiddly until you get the hang of the folding.

Who are Bambino Mio nappies best for?

Mums keen to save money by using cloth nappies.

MadeForMums verdict

A good budget option, Bambino Mio nappies are easy to wash and quick to dry. While they’re not the top performer when it comes to dealing with solids, they last well and are versatile.
