Close Parent Pop-in V2 New Generation Reusable Nappies Review

This week I want to talk to you about Pop-ins reusable nappies.

Why? Simply because I love them and have used them a lot.

I will be completely honest with you , when I was pregnant of Baba2 and started my search for great nappies , I have not heard at all about them. Maybe and surely because my main references were Blogs and Vlogs that are mainly US Based. So how did I hear about them?

I am quite a shy lady and was really anxious about going to a nappucchinos { not everyone is at ease surrounded by strangers – being a Muslim with a veil does not help if you see what I mean}. When I meet new people, they always assume who I am , where I am from and how I live, which is quite annoying and challenging in the same time. I have my own history like any other woman on this earth and deserve a bit of empathy… Well, that is why I usually like blogging and emails as people can judge me first with my words before judging me for my appearance. So, I contacted the Exeter lady responsable of nappuchinos, Jen Harris, and asked her for advices. She is very lovely but I was not ready to go {don’t ask me why, I have no idea ;-p} She mentioned to me pop-ins. Pop-ins? What?

And from that moment, in July 2014, my love for Close Parent Products started. I discovered the Pop-in nappy which is a kind of hybrid: not totally an All in One, not totally an All in Two. I have been convinced by the originality of this nappy and the prints {no need to hide it!}

I fell in love with the turtles and owls prints! So my journey started by buying V1.

It is exactly when they released the New V2 and new prints: Hippo, Lions, Russian Dolls and Robots.

I remember how I got crazy about them – Nesting Instinct I guess – , I have been very lucky to find a great shop at this time Babipur that helped me save a lot of money as they had Great deals! I bought a set of five Bright V2, One V2 Lions {as I could not resist the new print} and all the V1 prints : blue turtles, pink turtles, owls and monkeys, PLUS few V1 in Pink and Snowballs in Bamboo and Minky that were really discounted- £7.50 each!

But you know what? When I thought I had enough, I have discovered that the Birth to Potty nappies usually do not fit Newborns and that you might need 20-30 newborn nappies to be able to fully cloth bum from birth! Oh No! I thought, I had only 10 All in Ones Newborn nappies and because I really wanted to succeed this time, I decided to invest again a bit more. And you know what?


Close Parent propose a box of Newborn Nappies, so I bought them {Again lucky as RRP is £39.99 and found them discounted at £32.99 and they were out of stock nearly everywhere -Today, I know why}.Here is my Review of the Newborn Pop-in Nappies.

So let’s talk about the Pop ins V1 and V2

I have used them from 3 months to 13 months old, as my Baba has outgrown them. Baba is in the 90th percentile for her age, so not the average child. They should normally suit til potty -trained.

Baba2 is and has always been a very heavy wetter but I did not have to boost my pop-ins until she was 10 months old. They were my favorite night time nappy when she was 3 to 6 months old as they were not as bulky as the bamboozles so I did alternate between these two nappies.

I started to use the Pop-in Night Booster from 9 months old +.

Pop-in V2 cloth nappies are a good choice in a stash. They are really trustworthy and bomb proofs. Usually nappies with double gussets are really good especially for night time.

Great Birth to Potty nappy, a bit on the small size however my daughter has outgrown most of her BTP nappies. I definitely recommend these nappies for anyone having a heavy wetter at home or anyone looking for a trustworthy nappy.

You need a little bit of practice to have a good fit , mostly around the tummy but it is quite easy to succeed and once done, you should not be disappointed.

Close parent proposes TWO kinds of fabric: Minky and Bamboo for the soakers. Let’s see a little picture resuming the quality of each ones {from Close parent website}

Bamboo or Minky Pop ins nappy?

close awardsIn my stash, I have both. I prefer Bamboos as they are more absorbent but used a lot of the minky one when I was running out of clean nappies and for convenience as they dry faster. However, minky was only for day time.

Close parent have won a lot of awards for these nappies, and I really see why now. I have been really thankful to have met Jen for letting me know about them!





New prints have been released for the joy of all, not our CB. I found them cute and the colours are very bright!
