So I've put the first one on her. The fit is alright, but to be honest I was hoping they would be a bit wider over the bottom. The problem I have with nappies that are fairly trim but then have thick boosters is that the nappy then kind of folds around the boosters on either side rather than sitting flat against the bottom. So they're alright, but not great (in terms of fit).

And one of her showing it off, just for fun :giggle:

And 10 minutes after the photos she poo'ed in it! :) At least I got to try another out straight away. I've also compared them to some of the other nappies I have and have realised that the problem isn't that they're too slim (they're not actually) but the thick boosters and the very tight new elastic pulling the edges in. So hopefully after a few washes the elastic might relax a little and they might sit a little better :)

I'm now using them with a little lamb booster, which is much flatter, and we don't need more absorbency than that, and that works very well :)

Lovely piccies. I find them quite wide across the bottom area! I don't use boosters either though. LOve the colours.

They look lovely!
Have you tried putting the booster in the wrap instead of the nappy? (I mean first put the nappy on and then put the booster in the wrap on the oustide of the nappy, does that even make sense :loopy: )

That's an idea! I'll try that.

Soooo... I liked them so much (although the fit wasn't perfect), that I asked Jennie to make me 10 more (in all sorts of delicious colours) but this time with slightly looser elastic and without the boosters. They are perfect! :thumbsup: And without the boosters they were only £9.15 each! For a custom made WAHM nappy! :shock: I've even gone and bought some laundry detergent especially for coloureds because I want to keep the colours looking as lovely as they are now :giggle:

As I've now got too many nappies (and would like to recover some funds) I've decided to sell the first three Green Panda nappies I got. I've just got them in the dryer to make them extra fluffy for their new owner and then I'll be listing them in the classifieds.

Edited to add: They are now on classifieds :thumbsup:
