Newborn nappies

Postby clarge » Sat Sep 12, 2009 9:43 am

Hi ladies..... Thinking about starting up my newborn stash. I have one so far which is a jam tots hemp thingy but thats it. Think its gonna be a full time fitted and wool baby to begin with, may get one or two pockets for those longer journeys, but could use some recommendations if you would be obliged!

Thanks!

I absolutly loved bamboo little lambs on Kieren when he was newborn...infact i still love them and am in the process of building a little lambs stash for him in size 2 :) Being bamboo they stay lovely, soft and fluffy!! :) They are also pretty reasonable to buy second hand!

I loved Bimbles, Bambeasies, Diddy Diapers and Swaddlebees OV Newborn when Rowan was really tiny and then the LL Bamboo Size 1 when she was a little chubbier (she had wee chicken legs when she was born!) We also had a few XS Motherease Wraps as the small ones were too big around the legs.
I'm very jealous of your newborn fluff shopping - it's just sooo cute! Have fun. :giggle:

My DD was pretty small at 6lb3oz... we used Diddy Diapers, XS fluffles, XS sandies and 40cm terries and loved them all. Pockets did also work reasonalbly well for us too, we never had a containment problem with them either, even on super skinny legs. We used XS fuzzi's to start with, then wen tonto BG's when she hit about 7.5lb.... the bulkyness wasn't an issue for us as even the XS fitted were big on her..... (ETA: we didn't mind the bulkyness...)

We used 50cm terry square until Kacie was 3 months, saved me a fortune on not having to buy every different size. Having said that I'll probably go for bamboo Little Lambs and Tots Bots size 1's for number 2 :D I found the terries really versatile for4 all the frequant newborn nappy change and didn't mind the bulk at all. Looks quite cute IMO :giggle:

Also want to have a HUGE massive wave :idea: :idea: at Camille :giggle: Nice to 'see' you here :widesmile:

Size 0 bimbles are my favourite newborn nappies because they are such a cute, trim fit.

Sandy's work really well under wool.

Small Weenotions Northern Lights are my favourite luxury small nappies and the small still fits him really well now.

Applix nappies can get a bit stuck to the wool so I prefer popper or nippa fastening for that reason.
