Newborn nappies

Postby weefywoo » Sat Jan 23, 2010 12:18 pm

I know it's really early to be thinking about this but what are good nappies for newborns? Aoife was in dispicables and with Imogen I used tots cotton size 1 ... Until I found here :giggle:
The tots did the job but were very bulky and I found that their wraps wicked at the legs constantly, I know that I'm not going down the tots route again so any suggestions will be fab :D

eta... No doubt a silly Q but can I use wool for a newborn? :oops:

Oooh yummy newborn nappies - no point in saying Im not jealous because I am :giggle: I used prefolds for Evie, but have seen lots of recommendations for the Swaddlebees organic cotton velour newborn nappies - they are so cute and if they are as good as the one size I had, they will be so soft too. Cant see why you couldnt use wool on a newborn, I suppose there may be wicking issues if baby is laid in one position for too long, but an absorbant nappy should sort that out (I would think :-? )

Yes for woolies on newborn...gorgeous!! :wink: Although allow for the inevitable poop explosions and rapid growth...

We used~
Little lambs bamboo 1's
XS and S sandies
XS and S thirsties
XS and S prefolds

Wraps we used were XS and S ME airflow and rikkis (i dont like rikkis tho and dont think i would use them again), XS and S thirstie...these were FAB!

If we go for a #3 then i would like~

Here's what I have collected together for #2. I obviously don't have any experience using any of them on a newborn (Bella was in despicables for 6 weeks), so I don't know how well they are going to work. I'm still undecided about wool for the really tiny newborn phase as they grow sooo quickly and finances won't allow me to replace them on a very regular basis, so we might stick to PUL for a while and then use wool when he gets a bit bigger.

Anyway, the list :widesmile:

In the loft:
5 x size 1 Bamboozles
3 x size 1 Cotton Tots
2 x Sml Fuzzies

In stash pile:
2 x Size 0 Kissaluvs (pre-loved)

If I was having another baby my NB stash would be made up of

bimbles and bambeasies
diddy diapers
xs sandies
nb sbovs
s JRs
nb HOs
xs DnFs
nb FnSs

I'd probably get a few wool soakers and longies/shorties depending on when LO was due and some fleece. I can't stand PUL wraps now so probably wouldn't get any.
