I love the OV nappies, they are so soft and very very absorbant to. They are my fave nappy (or one of them
I have tried the pockets but did find that I got leaks around the legs, although i've had this problem with most of the pocket nappies I've tried. Lots of people use them with no problems so it might just be me.
Definitely try the OV - and you could always sell the pocket if you didn't like it.
I love the way you are buying a new nappy and saving money cos of postage - I thought exactly that a few months ago when I bought my lanolin and ended up with a p'tits dessous toudou.
