Koo-Di Baby-Go Review & GIVEAWAY!

Yes, you read that title right, a GIVEAWAY, right here on my little blog!

Well.  A review first.  Earlier in the week, I received a little parcel from the nice people at Koo-Di, with one of their Baby-Go portable change packs to try out.  As we were off to the Hay Festival, and I wanted to keep kit to a minimum (more free hands for gathering up pens & entering competitions!), I thought it would be the ideal place to try it out.

The kit is roughly the size of a birthday card, but a bit thicker, obviously, as it contains a nappy, 3 (very) large wet wipes, an antiseptic hand wipe for cleaning adult hands and a disposable changing mat.  All in a resealable package.  It fits comfortably in a coat pocket, in a handbag, or underneath the Symbio!

I have to admit, the thought of only three wipes made me a little nervous, Squeaky has been a poo-y child recently, but as luck would have it when I came to change her, she was only wet.  The wipes were also far larger than I had imagined, and I think that for most circumstances they would be more than sufficient.

The changing mat was slightly padded, giving a comfortable & soft surface (I changed Squeaky on a deckchair)  Not a huge mat, but big enough to keep her clean and hygienic.  The mat folds out, and has arms, on which the pack of wet wipes and the antiseptic hand wipe are secured.  I thought this was a smart move, there's nothing worse than having a half naked baby & you're rooting around in the bottom of the bag for the wipes.  The nappy was good quality, and absorbed well.  No complaints from Squeaky.

When you've changed the baby, you can roll the nappy up in the change mat, and place the whole lot back in the plastic bag, which then seals, meaning you can dispose of the whole lot easily and discreetly.  While the Baby-go isn't cheap, compared to buying nappies in bulk, I would happily splash out on a few for those times when space is at a premium for a short time.  I would have loved to have had a couple in my handluggage on holiday.

Baby-go is available in sizes 2 (7-13lb), 3 (9-20lb), 4 (18-30lb) & 4+(22-40lb) for babies from 3-18kgs. The Baby-go is available from Sainsbury's.  Find out more about Baby-go, and Koo-Di's other products at

You're waiting for the giveaway, right?  Patience.  Deep breaths.  The lovely folk at Koo-Di have given me 5, yes FIVE Baby-go packs to give away to you.  I'm going to keep things simple, because that's all I can cope with.
