:idea: and welcome to the tree.

Can't really advise on newborn nappies as I didn't use them successfully on DS til he was 10 months. :( I do have BGs now and I love them. Not sure what they are like on a newborn but on an older baby they are fab - easy to use, absorbant and reliable. If you don't have much success with them in the early months keep them till LO is older.

I also have Teddies and love their soft squishiness. I do find they are not as absorbent as other nappies and will only last 1-2 so I tend to use them in the eve in between bubs having his tea and going to bed.

Another cheap option to try are flexi-tots by Tots Bots. I haven't come across many people using them on the forum but I have found them to be a great fitted option. As the Version 2 has just come out you can get the Version 1 quite cheap at the mo (bout £7 new). They are not the funkiest nappy around as they are only available in white - and don't let the plasticky look put you off. The inside is lovely and soft and they have good absorbency (last up to 3 hours on my average-wetter). They work well with most wraps, especially the Tots Bots PUL wraps and ME airflow and rikki.

Have fun and enjoy feeding your addiction :happypixies:

:idea:
I used BGs on my baby from about 8lbs with no probs :)
I used disposables for first few days :oops: but would def recommend liners if not - that meconium is evil!

Hmm, with my first two, they literally only did one or two nappies of meconium then it went to that yellow liquidy stuff, is meconium really that big a problem with cloth? I don't know as used sposies for newborn stage with both of them!
