And I thought this reusable nappies was going to be easy. Me and my partner have done a lot of reading and thinking about the nappies, but still have some questions. In particular
Money is short at the moment so we do not want to spend too much money. Hence why we will probably try to go for 2nd hands. As we would not really would like to buy things twice, we are thinking of going for onesizes On the other hand I read here that onesizes don't really work very well on newborns. Is this true?
Typewise, I think that All in ones, all in twos, and pockets would be easier than two part. On the other hand it would appear that the two parts are most absorbing. We are planning on breastfeeding. Does this influence the type of poo and hence the type of nappy?
We are currently doubting between using Tots Bots Bamboozles and Little Lambs bamboos as workhorses (these seem to be the most popular brands). The bamboozles in size 2 seem to more or less be suitable from birth, whereas the Little Lambs should have to be a size 1, so we would have to buy another stash later. This makes me think the bamboozles are the better buy. On the other hand, they must be massive on a newborn. Motherease sandys are also mentioned quite regularly for newborns, but my partner is not too keen on poppers. Any other brands/types that are good but tend to be cheaper 2nd hand because they are not so well known.
Wraps wise, we were thinking of something with gussets. Are there great differences between different brands here, or is it all pretty similar?
Have any of you used AIO/AI2/Pocket nappies on newborns and can that work well? We are now thinking of buying some for on the side, just to see if we like them (they seem much easier to me than 2 part, but it seems to be very personal and there are a lot of 2 part fans on this forum as well).
Finally, is our idea of using 1 nappy from birth to potty easily do-able ro would buying some special newborn nappies be worth it? If so, how many and which ones would you recommend.
Thanks for any answers!!
