Hiya from the south coast
Where abouts in the south are you? I'm in Poole, my name is Lisa and I have three beautiful children, Steven (6), Alana (3) and Kellan (18 mths) and am pregnant with our fourth and last
Have a look around, try the classifieds for second hand nappies so you can try a variety before finding what fits your baby best, there's plenty to choose from!
Pockets - these you use by themselves and have a "pocket" in the back of them to stuff with boosters to make them as absorbant as you need.
Fitteds - these are nappies that need a wrap (a "plastic" or PUL cover/wool cover/fleece cover)
AIO - All In Ones are nappies that are literally that, all in one so no need for wraps/boosters to be stuffed as they are all built in.
AI2 - All In Twos are nappies that are altogether but you can unsnap the boosters to wash them separately.
Flats - these are terry squares or prefolds that can be folded to use under wraps.
Then there are three types of closure - poppers, velcro or nippa style (nappy nippas are like safety pins but safer
Hope that helps a bit, definitely a good idea to get a bundle from the council and try them all
Good luck on Fri, we look forward to hearing you birth announcement
Do you know what you're having?
