I am so confused by all the different types of Bum Genius nappies! A friend recommended BG birth to potty, but you have elemental, freetime, original, etc. Plus you have all these other brands too (some of which a lot cheaper than BG).
Someone help please! What would you recommend? I just want to get 20 or something and be done with it until the baby is using the potty. thank you.
One thing to consider is if you buy the all in ones and pocket nappies, you need to buy far more of them because at every nappy change you'll need to put an entire new nappy on. And they're expensive. We had a set of flips, where you only change the pad inside and reuse the cover as long as it's not soiled and I think we only had 7 wraps plus lots of pads to change. However the all in ones are good. Another thing, if buying second hand do check that the elastic in the leg gusset hasn't perished as that makes them pretty useless but is common.
If money hadn't have been a factor then I would've got the all in ones. But you'll need around 20. Some of the children at my nursery used them when I worked there and they were good. I went through several sets with my boy, because as he changed shape the ones we had began to leak. I think buying a whole set of aio s would be great. Or you could get a nappy trial when baby arrives?
Birth to potty are rubbish on the average newborn or for heavy wetters. Dont buy 20 nappies in one go of any sort as they may not work for you. Best nappies for newborns to about 20lb is size 1 little lambs with a mother ease wrap over. Cheap as chips off Facebook selling sites (£2.50 per nappy including removal insert) so you can spend £40 on a bundle and see how you like them. Alternatively little lamb with do a Boxing Day sale via their Facebook page which will be good. Their wraps are not as bombproof as mother ease though. Then find a nappy library (there are even postal ones) once baby is here and see what you like / works on your baby. Skinny babies need different to chunky babies need different to long babies etc etc! Good luck
