I have lots of XS and small Lollipop and Onelife velcro wraps that are just dinky on newborns - both brand new. I also have 3 in each size that have been barely used. They were returned by a customer who preferrred popper wraps. Some I think have only been prewashed. I said I'd selll them on for her at probably half RRP - £4.00 each. CAT me if you're interested.
With DD the Mio wrap we had worked well with her, but only when she got past about 15lbs. I never got on with the Mio stuff so just used the prefolds to stuff Wonderoos.
I was thinking of using muslins too for the first weeks as well as the Chinese pre-folds. I've just found (forgot I had it) a gussetted Tots wrap that should hold everything, though I used an old style Tots with DD and it leaked all the time.
I have some Tots Bamboozles (size 1) but I have a feeling they are going to be massive on a newborn. I have some Little Lambs too (size 1) but they too will have to wait a bit.
TheodoresMummy (love his name btw), how are you getting on with the muslins? Do you use a particular fold with them?
Thanks all for the replies, I have some purchasing to do!
For special occasions - and summer with just a t-shirt. I have had Blake a couple of custom wraps made by Upsy Daisy in minkee and triple cut. They were both between £10 and £15 including postage - so not bad at all.
Kayzr - I would feel the same as you, but cloth nappies really should leak less than disposables, so something was obvioulsy not right with yours. There are lots and lots of excellent shaped nappies on the market with decent wraps, or the new breed of All in ones are excellent. I've got a couple of secondhand Onelife nappies and a wap that I'm happy to send you, if you'd like, to see how you get on with those. They'd certainly be fine for daytimes at least.
My favorite wrap at the moment is a fleece one from upsy daisy, they are custom made and not a bad price at all. After this I like the WeeNotions ones that we have, these are PUL and very reliable and good patterns.
For my yongest (7 weeks) we have been using nature babies multiwraps too, some of their wraps are sooo pretty but she is growing out of them now so will be selling on when I get round to it .
