Thats interesting that you didn't get on with the Bimbles Em, I LOVED mine!! I bought Louis home from hospital in his with an xs rikki wrap and it was lovely and he was only 6 1/2 lbs (3kg) when we left the hospital.
Next time I plan to use a mix of Bumgenius, bimbles, fuzzis. Don't bother with Kissaluvs, I found them rubbish in terms of how bulky they were and how long they took to dry with not great absorbency. The other nappies I really liked were the Ellas house hemp ones, they were one of the first that fitted him well and the last ones he was in in size 1, very very slim too. I bought a EH hemp print one it it came up smaller than the plain so I may get some of them next time too (not as absorbent as the normal ones though). I will probably get some small bamboo terry sqaures as well, I didn't try them at all with Louis as a tiny baby but I know better now after I used Bright Bots later on. I do have a couple of plain terry nb squares and they are so perfect in pockets that you would use them all later anyway.
