Hey there, I'm new here and new to cloth nappies too!
This site was recomended by my lovely sister so here I am :)

I used disposables with both my boys (altho wanted to try cloth with the second) and now that baby number 3 is coming I am determined to give cloth nappies a go...
Any recomendations?

Hi Sophie,

What size were your boys at birth? We're expecting out son any day now, and have a stash of tiny sized nappies (Tots Bots Teenyfits for pockets, and Tots Bots bamboozles with various wraps for fitteds), as our daughter was quite dinky when she was born. But I know some people who have bigger bubs can go straight to one sized nappies, or just miss out the newborn size.

Feel free to have a look at my blog to see what my stash is like, and make sure you keep an eye on the classifieds section of the forum, it can be a great way of testing out a few different shapes and sizes without spending too much money!

When are you due?

If you make them tiny, definately go for small nappies like teenyfits. They're uber cute!

Well we've already been told that little lady is small and I'm not quite 29weeks yet, so they sound ideal really, I'll have a look for them, I'm totally new to all this so it's driving me mad but I'm determined to go with it this time!!

:wave: and welcome. I used fitteds on dd, xs OweWoahWhen were the smallest. I also used swaddlebees (i have 2 pink ones up for sale), monkey snuggles, bambeasies ( £6 from kingdom of fluff!!) and dunk n fluff. All with wool. I did have a newborn wrap, a rumparooz, which was fab.
