I've bought an Itti Bitti D'Lish nappy and also a mini snap in booster.
But I'm not sure how I use them.
Do I just fold the big soaker thingy into three and snap it inside the outer 'wrap' part of the nappy? Then sit the hourglass booster thingy on top?
Does this mean that all the absorbancy in the nappy is only in the middle part and nothing elsewhere? I've not used snap in AIOs/AI2s before (can you tell? ).
If I were to use the mini snap in booster where would I attach it? Presumably I could use the trifold thingy folded into three, then put the hourglass booster on top then would I put the mini booster on top of that? Or does it go underneath the hourglass booster? So sandwiched between that and the trifold insert?
If my son does a poo presumably it could make the whole thing dirty and not just the insert bit in the middle of the nappy? In which case I'd have to change the nappy completely rather than just snap in another insert? Sounds like an excuse to buy more of these. Not that I need an excuse of course......
I really want this to work for us as I don't have a tumble drier so AI2s/AIOs like this and pocket nappies would be the best way for us to go.
Sorry about all the daft questions - I feel so daft asking what must be so obvious to other people. Nappies seemed so much more straightforward 4 years ago.

And they're just as reliable I found...
