Hello all!! I have a 13 week old lady and I'd like to try cloth nappies. I have two bambino mio solos but they keep leaking around the leg holes! Does anyone know a good all in one (one size preferably) that would work for slim legs?

My little girl was tiny and the only cloth nappies I could get to fit were Terry towel squares with a fleece liner and I had to use the ‘girl’/‘pickman’ fold as others leaked. I used a cloth nappy library at the very beginning to try different types but I don’t know if they are doing it at the moment.

I used little lamb size 1 pocket nappies at that age for my slim girl. Now she's chunkier at 1 year we use birth to potty pocket nappies, mainly Alva Baby and Baba and Boo.

I found pocket nappies better for my little one when he was very small with skinny legs. I used littles and blooms ( I think that's what they are called! ) with Bambino inserts. They were the press stud type fasteners so I found they stayed tighter. I now have Bambino Mio solos which are good for him now he's running around. Initially I wanted just velcro ones but they leaked when he was small.

Also, get yourself onto the Facebook groups for buying second hand and general advice. My favourite is Cloth Bum Mums. The Nappy Lady site is also good and she gives free advice.

I've been recommended a baba and boo so might try that and I've ordered a little and blooms so fingers crossed!

I'll definitely join a group too, its all very new so any advice will be useful!

Tickle Tots nappies are great for skinny legs too
