I won one in the babame treasure hunt - fits really well on my 6 month old, though I did have a small leak through the stitching across the front. Will wash & do a short blast in the drier and see if that cures it. Otherwise I think its a great nappy, much handier than stuffing the v4.

Hmm not keen at all. The front somehow worked its way down jonah's front and after 2 hrs wear he was left with a red line along his tum (but lower down) and the back of the popper had rubbed and left him a bit sore :( gutted. I'll be sending the other 2 back.
I might try this one again.
It was super absorbent, I loved the aplix and it dried really quickly after a couple of washes.
So disappointed!

Really pleased yours is working out smaths :D

What's the difference between the freetime and the V4? The attached insert?

Well, on the first 2 tries she pooed within 10mins of putting the nappy on, so couldn't get a good test of absorbency! Containment was good though :thumbsup: 3rd try, we got a good 3hrs with no leaks.
As for the fit, it comes up smaller in the rise than the V4 and flip, so on my lo it had to be fully un-popped. It's not as trim as the V4 or a stay-dry flip. Also, if the front soaker is stuck under bubba's bum, it pulls the front fabric inwards which can cause it to rub.
In conclusion, I won't be buying another freetime, it's not one of my fav nappies. However, it is now one of my stash staples and it's v pretty, (I hope bumgenius bring out the 'lovelace' design in flips)!
