About reusable nappies...

I have some Bambino Mio bamboo prefolds I got when pregnant. I'm looking to start using them with ds 14weeks, and was having troubles with them not being secure under the wraps.
I bought some nappy nippas and am not sure they work with the bamboo prefolds as they aren't a terry type material.
Can anyone recommend me a good brand that will fit my Mio wraps?
I thought I'd like to use a prefold option but now am not convinced they are a good system so am also open to other types.
I'm totally new to reusables and spent time on the nappy lady site but it anyone can give advice based on experience and maybe some different opinions that would be grand smile
TIA

I found bambino mio prefolds a bit wide in the smallest wraps, and they tended to leak a bit of wee at the edges. This improved when I started folding them differently -thinner with more padding at the front. I know they changed the sizing of the wraps recently, but I think they fit better on a larger baby. Prefolds are cheaper, great for indoor drying and are less bulky on the hips but are definitely more fiddly than other types.

I tried prefolds when DD was 18m and found it really difficult to get right. Maybe some shaped nappies to go under the wraps like Little Lamb would be easier?

Lasted 5 mins with prefolds here as they just leaked! Highly recommend little lambs. Size 1 officially go to 20lb but my tall slim 15lb is in size 2 at 5.5months.
You can get 5 for £25 (Google will say where ?nappy lady) but I would strongly recommend pre-loved. There are loads of Facebook selling pages and you'd easily get them for £2-3 per nappy (and then could sell them on for a similar price!)
We found motherease wraps better (no leaks) too!

I have a load of little lamb ones to sell if you are interested... I bought second hand but never used. Some were used but some have barely been used. I have all the liners and wraps too.
