Luuuuuurve the look of some of the nappies. They're so cute, and it's so nice to finally get my hands on some after reading about them for the last 9 months
So DS2 is quite a heavy wetter. We have used 3 of the nappies so far today, the Bumgenius which was good but big. The Itti Bitti D'Lish which was great absorbency and looked gorgeous. and the Tots Flexitot which was a bit pants for absorbency, which surprised me but which felt lovely and soft and was easy to put on.
ooh that's a bit worrying, if DS2 is anything like his brother (and he's the same size DS1 was at 5 weeks now, and he's only 2 weeks old ) we'd be in trouble with the Bumgenius, and definitely the Ittis. As I've read on some of these threads that they come up small...
puffylovett - my 2 1/2 year old can wear BG - alot of babies get a bit chubster before they start moving around and are eating - so it seems the nappies own't fit but they do slim down when they are mobile and will fit.
There is a new btp flexitot out with fluffle on the inner booster which will help it dry quicker. I found itti bitti a bit small but lots of people have worn them up to age 3.
I do really like the bumgenius. It was the first nappy out of the lot that we tried.
Did't get on too well with the Motherease Sandys, not sure if I had it done up too tight and with the wrong wrap. Initially when I put it on I thought it was cute but then poor DS2 was left quite marked !
Still - we will try again
The Itti Bitti is still my fave... I'm not too big a fan of the one size nappies at the moment, but then DS2 is only 2 weeks old
puffy - onesize nappies do usually seem to big till around 3months or more.
I love ME sandys on small babies! They are lovely!
With the heavy wetting score - at about 3 months you should notice a difference as their bladders mature (or something like that ) and can concentrate wee a bit more. Can't remember ecactly what but it does help. My DD2 out weed everything in the first couple of months but is fine now.
Jenny - I figured they would, the babies are just so teeny after all. My mother thinks I am insane because I just love big cloth bums.
I really like the Nature babies Big Softie and loveable as well - they dry really fast and stay very soft despite our hard water and lack of tumble dryer. My old tots bots from DS1 are absolutely rock solid, although I have seen some tips on here to soften them up.
Maybe I need to try the bigger Sandys - they just take longer to dry, which puts me off the bamboo version & I hadn't planned to use real nappies overnight, although I may change my mind once I'm into the routine of using them
I am turning into a serious addict . I think I have read every single thread on here and trawled all the different nappy sites umpteen times
