I would help if I had the faintest idea...

they are prefolds they are square with a thicker panel in the middle and then you fold them into three and put in a gusseted wrap.

They are leaky rags from the cave-man era. Lots of evolution in nappydom since then.

they are a pile of sh!te what our council give out in their real nappy trial pack but yes swampster describes them perfectly.
Have a look at birth to potty pocket nappies - very convenient and easy to use

I have also heard awful things.

Do what Smac suggested..if I had my time again I would be buying them!

I only started using them when DD was 6m so didn't use the from birth settings but have a mixture of wonderoos and Bum Genius v3 so some popper ones and some velcro ones.
Very easy to launder and dry as well and although Birth to Potty are more expensive to start off you don't faff around buying 3 sets for the different stages.
There are some good used nappy sites as well - worth looking at to buy some different types to try out as when you buy new you have to wash them lots (4ish times) to make them absorbent.

But just about any other nappy insert will be slimmer-fitting and more absorbent.

Thanks all - someone was giving away 20 on freecycle and I thought it might be worth getting them. I don't think they quite get the MN seal of approval though do they!

I've used them on my newborn for the first 5 weeks or so... Fastened with a nippa with a Imse Vimse PUL wrap - never had a leak or any problem with them really. But my DS did grow out of them rather quickly.

We're now in TotsBots Flexitots and can't complain , though we use Motherease Sandy's during the night (Motherease Rikki or Imse Vimse wraps in both cases).
