Need some advice. I have used Little Lamb nappies for both ds1 and ds2 and have tried the cotton, bamboo and microfibre ones. The trouble I have had both times is that once my ds's got to around 12-18 months old and started wearing proper trousers, I would really struggle to fit them over the nappy and for that reason I ended up switching to disposables unless they were wearing joggers or baggy shorts.
I would really like to be able to use cloth for a bit longer this time. Can anyone suggest a less bulky, more slimline cloth nappy? Are old fashioned terries slimmer? Or do I need a prefold like Bambino Mio do you think?
Itti Bittis are very slim, and the colours are nearly all unisex too. I use the Snap in One in a size medium on dd, 16 months, but she's pretty tiny, so you might get away with going straight into large if you're starting using them at 12-18 months. I find them far more absorbent than Bumgenius, which we used prior to discovering Ittis, but they do take quite a few washes to reach maximum absorbency.
Well. I got a itti bitti snap in one, have to say, was a bit disappointed. It was really digging in around ds2's thighs and left marks. Also took ages to dry, and didn't like the low rise. Looks lovely, but probably not worth the money - might be ok on a baby up to 12-15 months but not for a 2 year old. cos they are lovely to look at!!
Totsbots easyfit v2 are slim fitting so are bambooty AIO. I also find Flips quite slim as there is no extra nappy around the side/hips to bulk it up. Fitteds are usually pretty bulky IMO although Bamboozle stretch isn't too bad ( I use it at night though) and pockets/AIO in the daytime.
