We have a set of Tot Bots Bamboozles size one in Yellow. Our DS grew very quickly and is already in size two (he's not even three months yet!). We have used fleece liners so there are no stains or anything. Anyway they are available if anyone wants them.
They are meant to go to 18 but our baby (perhaps carrying his weight in his hips and thighs like his mom?) is not looking too comfy in them and is much happier in the bigger size. I did not know about the 2nd hand market...where?
AFIK tallulah, as they're bamboo they take a bit longer to dry, but they make up for this by being thirsty little things. I've got a bambinex bamboo and it's very absorbent, but usually needs a spin in the drier where my cotton tots bot will be dry from the line.
Apologies for my terrible nappy habit too - it led me on to this thread!!
TBH I am feeling a bit sad as DD2 ready for potty training and my main reason for broodiness is to try out new nappies!!! It'll be really hard for me to pass on my nappies but most of them are knackered as were given to me years ago....
