Do you think you need to though? I did when I used it yesterday (didn't get on that well with it but could do with more prewashing I think) but it only had wee on so wasn't that bad. But a normal AIO you wouldn't need to do that to and I thought this was mainly for drying? Don't want to end up with a dirty nappy though!

I wou dthink you could still sell it with a poo stai, just wouldn't get as much? I have bought stained stuff before, i would rather buy stained nappies and spend less!

I normally unstuff/unpopper everything before washing, as I'm unreasonably paranoid about (even washed!) poo collecting in pockets. Also my machine is a high efficiency/low water one so I just feel happier having all nappies disassembled before washing.

I must get that nappy out in the sun and see if the stains fade at all. They have gone a little bit over time.

:idea: How do you get your hand down the hole to stuff the booster in let alone stuff the floppy flap back in?

I didn't the first time I washed it and the bamboo bit ended up all scrunched up in the middle and I am not convinced it would get properly clean. I always unstuff pockets and this to me is a pocket with an attached insert and one that comes out - not really an aio :-?

I just sent one back - I found the leg cuff really hard and crinkly.

Swapped for a bumGenius - great at what it does but I don't love it you know?

Wanna try a thirsties aio, but no funds. Tut :roll:

Just wanted to say, I am starting to really love my tots AIO. I have the bamboo one but took the removable insert out and replace it with an easy peasy hemp (but nearly everything of mine contains an EP hemp lol). And that seems to work really well. The fit is absolutly perfect on Elouise. fits really nicely. I prefer this I think to her pockets (BBOS, GK, BG etc). BUT they don't come in enough patterns! And very expensive to get a few too.

I will give it a try on the newborn in a few weeks. I am guessing I would just have the stuffing that is attached to it?

That's great news! What is drying time like and also slimness? I know it will be comparable to other bamboo nappies but really my fluffle one is thicker than the sanitary towels they had when my mum was a teenager!

By the way, are the EP hemp boosters really quite slim? Are they slimmer than the hemp part of the BBOS booster (if you have one) or about the same? Thanks x

They do take a long time to dry, which is a shame. But TBH we have so many nappies, I don't really know how long as all my nappies usually end up hanging up longer than they actually need to because I am lazy and if we have enough to use, they just stay hanging (if inside obviously).

My newborn is now wearing it for the first time which is what made me look back at this thread. It seems a good fit. Not 100% sure it is tight enough on the legs, but she is very skinny. We will soon see when she does a bit runny BF poo! Lol. She is sitting on her Daddy too! It isn't too bulky either. She is only around 7lb at the mo so pretty impressive considering it also fits Elouise who is 16 months and it is a really good fit on her too.
