If I knew then, I wouldn't have bought the Bambino Mio, but I have, and now that we are on DC3 (and the money-saving is really kicking in, having re-used theses resuables so many times) I don't want to buy a whole new set.
However, the covers are pretty useless and even worse this time around becuase they're kind of stretched out. So, any suggestions for new covers that would work with the nappies I have?
Yep - the Motherease Rikki or the new style tots bots wraps (with gussets) will work well with a prefold. The former are the more reliable option but the latter have a softer aplix strip so might be the better option for a newborn.
I've been using both with prefolds for DS (who is 6 weeks old and BF'd) with some success. He is a chunky 12lb now but still in the Size 0 tots wraps, but now in the small Rikki, not the extra small.
You can get very cheap cotton bottoms/tommee tippee wraps on ebay at the moment. They are very suitable for prefold nappies and I found them really good. They are much more durable than bambino mio as well.
Yes i second the rikkis or that style, the new new tots new wraps are very similar to the rikkis and now DO NOT have gussets which strangely makes them less prone to leaks - there you go BBM - another thing you will have to try lol! They are funky too!! They have new soft bindings like a motherease.....
OOooooh...just had a nosey at your website. No gussets indeed! Have you tried the flexitot with the gussetted wraps by any chance? Don't fancy buying any more wraps - I've just sold all my spares <rolls eyes>
I liked the Prorap over prefolds - if you're looking for cheap these are very reliable yet only about £6, have a gusset with double elastication all round and admittedly only in plain boring white but they do work really well over prefolds evenif you don't secure the prefold Nappi nippa
i think the natural baby resource are somewhere in ireland so would ship - that said wraps are hardly heavy so i would just charge my usual rate anyway as would probs others or not ....... (for a mumsnetter!)
No ihave not tried with gussets but i have a couple left on sale....
