Nappy Library urgent help please!!

Postby nikkib » Wed May 06, 2009 11:40 am

I've been offered some funding for buying some new nappies for my nappy library. However I don't know what to get!! I have quite a few different fitted nappies, but not much in the way of pockets and aio/ai2. I have some prefolds as well, so don't need those... it's just those with wraps built in/snapped in that i'm lacking so help me ladies!!!

I'm hoping to get 6 WNSS (2 each size), but what else should I ask for? Should I ask if they could preferably refund the money I've just spent on some 2nd hand nappies for it? I would like to order another s/m/l ittis (just got one of each size atm), I also have 2 wnos, a large berry plush (should i get other sizes?) a blueberry os, and a large nappy nation and a couple of others (all preloved apart from 2 ittis!)

what would you suggest I get? HELP PLEASE ASAP as I need to email the guy with products and costings :S

IMO I wouldn't get 6 WNSSs I'd try to broaden your choices a little more, I find the fit of BBSS better than a WNSS, and how about some UD pockets, I assume you have fuzzis, what about bgs and wonderoos???

I have some BGs and wonderoos, and a couple of fuzzis. UD pockets and BBSS are good ideas! where are the best places to buy them from?

I normally get BBs from stratford nappies, but shop around for the best price :wink:

UD obviously from them direct

I have a couple of ex-trial P'tits Dessous mini-maxis onesize pockets, which I'm about to sell on. My trial team think they are much better than Wonderoos , as they don't have the frill which can cause wicking, are much longer in the rise, so really do go to potty, but also popper up much smaller than Wonderoos.
PM me if you want one.

I would'nt get 6 WNSS's either, maybe one or two (like a teeny one and a bigger one) and a onesize and an AI2 :D Fuzzi Bunz are pretty reliable nappies for people who are just starting out with cloth.

I don't really recommend Swaddlebees pockets or AIOs (they look OK, but ive yet to get a decent performance from them.) "Real Easy" nappies arent great either.

How many nappies do you need for a nappy library? :shock: that must be such fun!! :D

I'm waiting to hear back from the council re:funding now, so i'll have to wait and see what they're happy to pay for. I've emailed them with all the prices of the different nappies i would be interested in, and so i'll just have to wait and see what they say!!

really hoping they do decide to grant something meaningful!!!
