Not sure which ones fro Ebay, was just browsing around and they're all fairly reasonablely priced so can't compare there, but am open to suggestions/recommendations.

Would also consider buying lightly used ones but I'd imagine its hard to find ones that aren't well used...

not at all just have a look around some have been used ffrom birth to potty (so well used) or maybe even on more than one bubs.

you can also find lightly used or just very very well cared for nappies on here very easily as some mums have massive stashes of nappies :giggle:

Bumgeniums come highly recommended and are a lot softer...
Itti bitti are good AIOs too :)


Have you tried the prints Steph, I don't think they are plasticy at all

I like itti AIOs but they don't last long on a heavy wetter, and are quite pricey given you will probably need 3 sizes BTP, we managed with mediums 6 weeks to PTing mind, but DD was/is very petite, I think they'd have fitted DS2 from birth as he was practically 9lb.

I like easyfits V2, not tried bumgenius AIOs but if they are anything like their pockets they should be good.

Generally AIOs aren't great on the absorbency front, pockets are better and provided you wash and then stuff them, they are the same as AIOs in that you can just put them on.

If you were to look at pockets I would highly reccomend bumgenius onesize, if you want something prettier theres blueberry sidesnaps and onesize, and weenotions sidesnap and onesize.
