Review: Cushie Tushies Cloth Nappies

We use a mixture of disposable and reusable nappies for my baby boy. 
We tend to use disposables at night or if we are going out for longer than a couple of hours and use reusables during the day at home.
It works well for us as it allows us to save some money and feel like we are making a lesser impact on the environment whilst not having to wash nappies every single day.

Recently I have been given the opportunity to review a cloth nappy via Kiwi Mummy Blogs.
The nappy is a Cushie Tushie Basix from Scamps Boutique.

And here's the blurb from the Scamps Boutique website:
"The Cushie Tushies Basix is a one-size-fits-all all-in-one nappy which contains an outer layer of deliciously soft Minky, a layer of waterproof PUL and two large layers of absorbent bamboo inside the wet-zone, and an inner lining of matching microfleece against baby’s skin.

The huge, snapped in booster contains another two large layers of bamboo for added absorbency and is topped with another layer of matching microfleece material.

The Basix is the Cushie Tushies workhorse nappy. This nappy is excellent value at a reasonable price. It is absorbent, lasting 2-4 hours between changes, trim fitting, and so easy to use that Daddy and Granny can’t get it wrong! It comes in a range of beautiful pastel colours"

We have had the chance to use this nappy a few times now and so far haven't had any leaks which is great (although we have only tested it wet and not dirty yet!). I love the feel of the minky layer - it's so soft and cuddly! And the nappy seems well constructed.
The pop-out layer makes rinsing, washing and drying easy and it's a breeze to pop it back in.
Baby seems comfortable wearing it.
When it first arrived I did wonder if the minky layer would make him too hot but I've not noticed that he has been too hot or uncomfortable when wearing it.
I would feel happy recommending this nappy. Also, if you haven't tried reusables yet but want to give them a go this could be a great one to start with :-) Especially given that Scamps Boutique has an offer available at the moment to get $4.00 off!

There is an opportunity to win a nappy via Kiwi Mummy Blogs thanks to Scamps Boutique. Here's the link so you can rush over and enter!
