OS aplix nappies? Pocket tots compared with BG and BBOS?

Postby Velvetsteph » Wed Dec 02, 2009 8:28 pm

I'm looking at velcro/aplix fastening OS nappies and the pocket tots by tots bots come with a bamboo insert...
Are they any good?

Our nursery were USELESS with poppers last time so I'm not going for the coolababy ones despite how much it would save me in pennies :roll:

I'll be buying 10 velcro OS nappies probably...

What other options are there?

Hmmm I've just seen that happy heiny are doing prints again - are these poly prints like the OS cow one is?

I'm quite interested in the totsbots too, but my sister tells me that the chatter amongst her nappy friends is that they aren't quite as good as the bumgenius. I'm not as keen on the look of them either- they look a bit girly for my boy's bum! However I do like the idea that they are natural fibres in the pocket.
I am liking bumgenius at the moment, just got a few at 20% off at Bebeco, but that site has stopped doing it, though they are still on offer here- http://www.thenaturalbabyresource.co.uk ... cket-Nappy.
I know people winge about aplix but you can't beat the ease of it!

I had a few of these when I first started using cloth. They were easy to put on but only lasted 2 hours max with us. Also had rubbing issues. every baby is different though so may be a good fit on her. BBOS are rubbing dans huge thighs now so may have to sell :( WN applix ones are great but doubt you want to spend that much :giggle:
Bgs are good for us. HH just leaked.

I used BBOS as the stape of my stash when I used pockets I loved them, easy for Nanna.

I have an emerald one here if you havent had one. I used petit desus bamboo inserts with EP hemp boosters.
BG are good but I found the aplix goes rubish quickly.
HH were rubish for Kaydi.
I havent tried the others.

thats didn't help did it :giggle: sorry

I was contemplating buying some low end WNOS aplix pockets just with fleece outers instead of minkee... :-?

BBOS are a bit pricey tho'
