I have tried many brands of nappies and keep returning to Mamia for its reliable dryness. When I was offered to try a nappy from Japan, I was intrigued to see if it would tear me away from them.

Moony nappies from Japanese Nappies are available in both nappy style and pants style. I asked if I could try the pull on pants as Lucas has become a little escape artist at changing time and I’m finding it increasingly difficult to put a nappy back on him.


Unlike the nappies we get in the UK, these nappies have variations according to the sex of the baby as well as the stage they are up to. Lucas is in size 4 nappies and was sent a pack of size large which are suitable for 9-14 kg (approximately 19.8 – 30.9 lbs).

My first impressions of the nappies were that they feel very soft, thin and I immediately loved that they have a wetness indicator. The lines on the outer of the nappy turn from yellow to blue when they nappy is wet. Japanese Nappies are made from organic materials and claim to have a special filler inside the nappy with high absorbancy levels to eliminate heavy nappies. They also say that the inside of the nappy is soaked with Vitamin E to protect from nappy rash and making them perfect for sensitive skin.

Japanese nappies

I’m going to start with the negative points. The nappies didn’t keep Lucas dry throughout the night. After 10 hours the nappy had leaked making his sleepsuit and sleeping bag wet.

The real downside of these nappies though are the price, as I love Mamia nappies I class Pampers as expensive but these are in a whole new category at £22.50 for a pack of 44, which even if they did keep Lucas dry throughout the night, I just could not justify spending that much on nappies.

I did like these nappies though. I found these nappies to be great during the day, they fit really well and we didn’t have any leakages. The sides of the nappy easily ripped when needed to clean up without pulling them down the legs. I also found nappy changes a lot easier as I could put these on even when Lucas was crawling away from me. The nappies have a sticky tab to fold the nappy up once it has been used.

    These sound ideal for use during the day. I wouldn’t like to rely on them through the night.

    My nephew could do with these during the day but probably not at night if they leak.

    Gosh they are expensive. I like the fact that they are different for each gender though. I’m a huge fan of aldi nappies too. I don’t tend to use anything else x

    We reviewed these too and they were great, but too expensive for normal use unless the baby has really sensitive skin or something x

    Always worthwhile to know of various brands. Like the idea of them preventing nappy rash:- Though wonder how effective they are.

    February 1, 2016 at 10:19 pm (2 years ago)

    Love that the inside of the nappy is soaked with Vitamin E x

    These would be great for my new grandson to try as he does suffer from terrible nappy rash, though we are finding that Aldi nappies are the best for him, but sadly the don’t have one where they live, so when we are visiting we go buy loads to stock them up for a few weeks.
