@clothmama yes by the time I bought them in europe they didn't have the bamboo and hennep ones here, so I tried the AIO. Think I'll get a few different ones just to try ;) Need to wait for DH bonus to collect everything we still need for our little man.
But making a list seems smart so we see what we need and prices etc ;)

:wave: you ll definitely need more smaller ones. I ve found that the bamboozle stretchies take the longest to dry even when Bob was tiny and it was summer :( teeny fits are pretty quick though.

Would it be worth getting some terries to bulk it out? I know your DH wouldn't want to use them but for you to use ( chances are you ll be doing more changes ;) )

I'll get some terries, can use them with nappies and a wrap if I'm right?

And some Lollipop and Babybeehinds to add to that.

I found the lollipop nappies (5 with wrap) for 22.50 pounds at clothnappyshop.
My Dd3 was 3.5 kg at birth, the nappies fitted here when she was about 1 week but the wraps left a little gap at here (skinny) legs. We started using them at 4 weeks and 4kg. She's now 8 weeks and I realy like the nappies. They take some time to dry (2/3 days ) but unlike the rest of my laundry they don't get smelly.

@ems101 think Babipur does offers very often with the bamboozle packs.

I think I'm gonna get 5 Lollipop ones and a few babybeehind ones. Oh and I need a few wraps in a tiny size and a few prefolds/terries I think.
Goes I'm a bit stressed I think.

Yes, you can use terries with nippas and a wrap :D

We didn't use them for a while since I / we thought they might be a bit difficult, but then one day I folded a few using origami fold and put them in the 'ready to use' pile, and we never looked back. SO much easier to care for than just about any other nappy - no elastic or PUL or laundry tabs... You can dry them any way you like (if you get cotton of course) but anyway they're faster than anything else, AND absorbant AND fit anyone.

Plus it's the very cheapest (thinnest) that are best for squashies. You can get a 12 pack of the basic Junior Joy ones for under £15 :thumbsup:

Well I think I must not fear and try them but like you say they seem tough because of the folding.

I fell in love with terry's when Louis was about 5 months old, it hit that time of year where we didn't have the fire on but the nappies couldn't dry outside in the day so I ordered a pack of Bright Bots terry squares (the lovely coloured ones) and I never looked back - they were such a great addition to my nappy stash. If we manage to have another I'll be using some 'flats' from birth - probably a mix of prefolds and bamboo terry squares! I loved the Jo fold (also known as envelope fold) it was really easy and adjustable and trim and absorbent for a boy :D
