TotsBots PUL wraps were my worst buy. The binding wicked moisture so they were useless. They were my first wraps and I came so close to giving up on cloth because of them.

I made the same mistake as many other people by buying a Bambino Mio birth to potty set. Tried them briefly, but had to change the wrap every time and they leaked so badly for us. Used the wraps with other fitteds and used a couple of the prefolds as stuffing for other things. Liked nearly everything else I bought. Kate x

So I tried the UDNN on bubs again tonight, and it fits perfectly...! :lol:
A good lesson in not selling stuff straightaway!

I hated my drybee as it leaked everytime. I got rid of my babybeehind pretty much instantly as I didn't get on with them at all, they were too stiff, and I ended up throwing my magicall in the bin in a fit of rage as it was always soaking wet through the pul.

The first nappies I brought to start using cloth with were by far my worst buy!! Tots bots AIO and easy peasy by hip hip baby. Terrible fits on ds one left red marks on his legs especially and the other was just HUGE and wicked even though it was BTP!!! Mutts are another bad buy for us. Wet in 1/2 hour :shock: .
I am so glad those first buys didn't put me off though I LOVE using cloth.

I haven't tried many yet - only tot bots, motherease, coolababy and bumgenius. But I found the coolababy nappies awful. I liked them to start with but they started to wick terribly after a few months :( so have now abandoned them and sticking to the bumgeniuses.

Kushies and the Boots' rip-off of Kushies, the Kushies ultra I had developed HOLES in the outer cover after a couple of months, the Boots version has now ripped where the tab goes on, rendering it useless.

Bumgenius. Although fantastic when new, I find the elastics go after a few months, and then the aplix goes! Much prefer poppers to aplix.

Wonderoos, terrible fit and some of the poppers woudln't do up.

I always advise people who are new to cloth, never to get Birth to Potty packs until you have trialled one of the nappies.. If you hate the nappy, it is such a waste of money.
