How do I fit the insert in and does that insert need to be used from birth or until the baby is weaned? There are poppers on the insert but none that I can see on the inside of the nappy itself.

I never used a liner when using pockets. A fleece liner acts as a stay-dry layer, but most pockets have that already. And fleece on top of a stay-dry layer can act hydrophobic. I never used paper liners. All liners with newborn poo are virtually useless - far too runny. They're only useful in that sense when your LO has started solids. But if you opted to use liners, it doesn't matter on the brand; specific liners don't have to be used with specific nappies.

all in ones dont have pockets for inserts, they have all that already in the nappy, try the pocket nappy section.
i was just as confused when i started looking into all this so dont worry
