Hi I have a papoose and I really liked the pattern on it but we found it leaked badly round the legs and it was hard to boost, my daughter has chunky thighs and a skinny middle and getting both to be a good fit was hard! I got the ll bamboo boosters on offer, £12 for 10 I think, and these are fab, use them all the time! Do have some cheapy bamboo ones which I think are fab, not keen on microterry I find it bulky and wee just goes straight through sometimes.
My machine doesn't do a cold wash :S not that I've found anyway - it doesn't even do 30! I usually do a 40 prewash and 60 normal wash and extra rinse, it's not a great machine though and I suspect the temps aren't very accurate anymore.
