The Lollipop Pop ‘n’ Grow is a quick drying all-in-one reusable nappy with poppers to allow you to adjust how it fits, and absorbent boosters you can add as your baby’s needs change.
The design of the Pop ‘n’ Gro nappy from Lollipop is simple: it has a microfibre core to soak up week, with a layer of fleece over the top to keep moisture away from your baby’s skin. The waterproof outer wrap is stitched on so that you don’t need a separate cover.
The nappy fastens with Velcro, but has rows of poppers down the front to adjust the ‘ rise’ (the height of the nappy). Do up the poppers to the smallest setting to make it tiny for a newborn, to the middle setting for an older baby, then leave them undone for a toddler.
The Pop ‘n’ Gro comes with two boosters that you ‘pop’ into the nappy – leave it unboosted for babies up to 10lb, and after that just use either one or two boosters depending on how much absorbency you need.
Price-wise, the Lollipop Pop ‘n’ Gro nappy is £14.95 for one; £69 for a ‘go pack’ of four; £295 for a ‘get set’ pack of 20.
What we love
The Lollipop Pop ‘n’ Grow nappy comes in really lovely colours, most of which are unisex. Okay, perhaps the hot pink, isn’t! It’s also lovely and fluffy, and after several washes the colours haven’t faded and the nappy still looks great.
The Pop ‘n’ Gro is also very easy to use. My baby’s over 12 months so I leave the poppers on the front undone, and it’s a really nice, neat fit.
Usually, I’m not hugely impressed with the absorbency of all-in-one nappies, and only use them when out and about and to make things simple if someone else is looking after my baby. However, I find that this nappy is as absorbent as most of my two-part nappies, and I seem to be using it all the time! My husband loves it, too, as there’s no messing around with additional wraps, and it’s as easy to put on as a disposable. A definite bonus for a wriggly toddler!
To me, the very best thing about the Lollipop Pop ‘n’ Grow is the drying time. All-in-ones often take forever to dry, as there are so many layers, but the Pop ‘n’ Gro dries quickly, which is great for me as I don’t have a tumble drier. It also doesn’t go ‘crunchy’ when washed in the hard water that we have in my area, even if I line-dry it, a problem that I’ve had with other nappies.
What to watch out for
The only thing that disappointed me about this nappy was one of the colours – the fresh green – was more of an army-green shade, and not what I was expecting when I ordered it.
The inner of the nappy also bobbles a bit after a few washes, although this doesn’t affect its performance and you can’t see it once the nappy is on.
I occasionally find that with both the boosters in, I get a bit of gaping around my baby’s legs, but it’s always fine with just one booster. It’s quite a big nappy, even compared to other birth to potty nappies so even if your baby’s quite big, it’s worth trying the nappy on the medium popper setting if you get any gaping.
The nappy does seem expensive, but when you think that it will fit your child for years, and that you don’t have to buy wraps on top, it’s actually good value. Consider buying the multi-packs for added value as they come with extras like a changing mat, liners and a carry bag.
Who is the Lollipop Pop ‘n’ Gro best for?
Mums after colourful reusable nappies that are as easy to put on as a disposable.
A reliable, good-looking reusable nappy, the Lollipop Pop ‘n’ Gro is at all-in-one style nappy. It’s easy to use, easy to wash and quick to dry. With poppers to adjust the nappy’s fit, and the option to add extra boosters for absorbency, this nappy can cater to young babies and toddlers too. However, you might find it gaps a little around the legs if not on the right poppers or if both boosters are in.
