The Bambino Quadro Booster is Bambino’s premier booster made specifically to fit their Bambino Diapers. Though it will fit into most adult diapers, it was designed to lay perfectly within the Bambino Diaper seat area to provide extra protection. It was designed so that it can be maneuvered in the diaper to provide added protection especially when sleeping to prevent any sort of leaks. Even though I have never leaked with a Bambino Diaper – there is something about adding a little extra protection to add that little extra something in the diaper. Plus, I will admit the thickness it adds to my butt region is sort of cute. Feels very babyish when it is inside the diaper which is nice especially when you are going to bed to have that babyish feeling and that added bulk of protection.
The first thing you will notice about the Bambino Quadro is the softness of the material used in making the booster. This is one of the main features that the Bambino Quadro brings to the table besides its superior absorbency, but we will get to that point later. The material is probably the softest I have felt in the “booster” category and believe me I have tried quite a few of them. When you put it on, the softness just presses against my bum and it is so soft. I think this feature is probably an overlooked one because nobody wants any problems when it comes to chaffing or roughness down near the genital/butt area. So, I applaud Bambino Diapers for addressing the issue and making the material VERY soft.
Second, the absorbency is of course phenomenal. I have never seen a booster able to absorb so much. I believe literally that if you combined the Bambino Quadro with a Bambino Diaper that you could probably go 2 days without changing your diaper. Seriously, the combination of these two is huge. Anyways, the Quadro has absorbency that will amaze you I think. If you run out of Bambino Diapers and all you got around is some crappy Depends or store brand diapers – add one of these bad boys to it and it is like an instant absorbency boost that probably quadruples the absorbency of the store brand diaper. The absorbency really amazed me so I felt I should make a post on it.
The scent of the Bambino Quadro is what makes it even more unique than any other booster on the market. No other booster has that “baby” scent to it. In my opinion, the scent is not too strong and not too light. It is perfect for me. It is not noticeable by just wearing the diaper around in public but if you have just the diaper on with the booster in it then every once in awhile you may get a little hint of the smell. A good idea is to stick the boosters in maybe a drawer or closet – it gives it a nice little babyish scent that is not too strong.
The price of the Bambino Quadro appears on par with it’s competitors but with far superior features and uses for it. Of course, you will have to try it yourself to see whether it is for you or not. But, I highly recommend them especially if you tend to leak at night when you turn sideways or what not. They really add a great deal of protection in combination with it’s softness to really give you that babyish and bulky feeling too. If you have any questions about them, please do not hesitate to ask..
I couldn’t agree with you more. I live in Canada and the old supplier of Bambino’s is out of business so I couldn’t get any for a while. Last month http://www.B4NS.com started selling the full line. I right away bought more diapers and a case of boosters. I can’t believe what the combination will hold. Saturday I went 14 hours with one diaper and booster and no leaks. My SO said I was waddling when we got home because my diaper had swelled so much. I felt like a real toddler with a big wet diaper. They are really worth the money.
I recently got a sample booster with my order of Bambino diapers. They are as advertised. They are soft and while it is thin looking by itself, i does give a boost in thickness, more than I thought. They are very absorbent as well. What was cool too was the sample I received was dusted with a light powder scent.
But overall the softness is what I was impressed with the most.
Give them a try.
Wow, thanks Adrian. I think I may have to check these out the next time I order from that website.
Hi Adrian, love your posts! I was wondering though, what’s the difference between the Bambino Quadro and Duo? Is The Quadro just bigger (therefore more absorbent than the Duo)? Thanks and keep up the great work!
McKenzie – the Bambino Quadro is bigger but also much more absorbent…it is used for more of the people who leak during the middle of the night or just want that huge extra protection because of it’s size. But, it has more polymer in it for better absorbency.
I started using the Tranquility contoured booster at your recommendation, and I love them. I’m excited to try the Bambino Quadro – I get my sample tomorrow :)!
Do you think the Quadro out performs the Tranquility booster? I hope so because they are only a few cents more and they are from my favorite company. For me a booster make so much sense because they stop leaks at night and virtually double the capacity of a bambino for about $0.50.
Thanks for the wonderful post!
[…] Hot right? LOL. Well they are hot to me at least. I took them after we got back from getting chinese food one night. He didn’t want me to take any because he felt really fat and he hates taking pictures when he feels fat. The lighting was not very good where I took the picture so I desaturated the photos so they are black and white basically. Kind of makes my photos look a little more professional than they were. My boyfriend the diaper model. Sorry, I feel like being silly today. I hope you enjoyed the photos and if you missed it be sure to read up on my review of the Bambino Quadro Boosters. […]
shame there not selling these in the U.K
Just been onto the Bambino website that you suggested Adrian. I don’t think I will be wearing Bambinos as they wanted $75 just for delivery to Scotland. I was looking forward to trying them out as everyone says they are so good. Does anyone else know of anywhere that may sell Bambinos in the UK or have cheap shipments to the UK?
From reading the description about Bambinos they are alot better than my make. I haven’t got much to compare them to as I have only ever worn the one type. Tyco Healthcare Supreme Fit all in ones. They aren’t designed for AB or DL but for the medical use. Has anyone ever tried them before? These seem to be the main type on the market in the UK I think but I will keep on searching. I am realy enjoying being a DL and the community being a DL brings you into.
hey andy.just read your note dated july 22.
i’ve just found a site called cuddlz.check it out dude.they sell a bambino substitute which is exatly the same but a bit cheaper and because there in the uk the postage is next to nothing(50 quid for a case of fourty and only 6.50 for postage.
there amazin. check them out.
Ian – I tried those nappies from Cuddlz you suggested. They are great, I put them through the full extensive testing for 6 hours whilst drinking and eating lots before hand. Not a single leak. I am assuming the thicker plastic strip under waist band at the front is to creat that bit more crinkle as these nappies are designed for DLs and not for the medical sector. Good find Ian, thanks.
hi andy glad you enloyed the site. the crinkle bit on the front is for the tapes to stick and be able to be re stuck several times. mate ther great arentthey. by the way i’m oringionally from scotland but live in devon now.
Where in Scotland? My house is in Birmingham but live and work in Scotland.
Still loving this site but not really enjoying Thomas’s way of commenting. His opinion is important whether it is for or against others however there are ways of saying things which I don’t think he has grasped. Keep up the good work Adrian. Love your work.
ANDY. hi mate. i’m from glasgow but moved down to devon a few years ago.much better down these parts. would be good to chat to ya in the chat room sme time.look out for “dibs” n that’ll be me.
Can you give some pictures comparing dry vs wet of the quadro pads?
Do they exceed Abena’s let maxi booster pad?
If its possibe can you compare in photos Quadro Pad vs Abena let Maxi. Both wet and dry?
And about those Cudlz nappies, apprently in 2010 they are planing to have a printed version, so we reall will have our own UK designer nappy, well we already do with the cuddlz but as a AB i cant wait for the printed version!, im guessing they will kep the plain white version for the dls.
I said to myself when the cuddlz nappies first came out i wasnt going to get them, becuase for me, to be a perfect ab nappy they had to have those prints, but i just have to finsd out what there like in terms of fit absorbency, and who knows maybe i will find the plain white more babyish than i expected, so i ordered some yesterday, hopefully they will get here before xmas day!
Booster pads are a must if you wear diapers. No matter how absorbent the manufacturer says their diapers are, it’s always a good idea to wear a booster pad.
