i cant really say much as i havent actually used any of ours yet but i do regret (and dont remember) buying these weird shaped nappies that need a wrap, they are shaped fabric with a liner attached, but again you need a wrap and the whole thing just puts me off, plus they are huge! I vaguely remember when I was a nursery nurse student at my family placement the mum was trying cloth nappies for a while and said she would never use them again and they leaked: she was using the nappies I mentioned above, shame that she didnt know about the less scary looking nappies that are out there.
One of those overrated cheap aio's from ebay, it was red fleece all over with some weird tartan fabric on the inside and velcro that had obviously been very swiftly sewed on in the usual places for nappys of this style, i was intrigued at how this fleece disaster could possibly be an all in one as there was no waterproofing and the fleece very thin so i tested it with water (as did many other people who had left negative feedback but of course I was one of the first to buy this nappy so there was no feedback), it of course leaked straight through, in fact leaked wasn't the word, more like poured, so that needs a wrap obviously, i told the 'company' this in my feedback. They are now selling these in sets which cost the price of an actual decent nappy set; somewhere along the lines of £200, i think whoever buys that will shed a few tears, hopefully not on to the nappy as it will leak
im sure i will learn much more when i start using the nappies too! im just so glad i didnt go to somewhere terrible like mothercare and buy a 'birth to potty set', you can find nappies cheaper elsewhere (in fact most things cheaper elsewhere) and oh the fun of searching on sites like this and spending loads and getting different types!
