I have some in my stash and quite like them. They're not the prettiest/cutest nappy around as they're only available in white but I find them quite reliable. Max is a medium to heavy wetter and they will last him up to 3 hours unboosted. I mostly like them for their fit. Max is quite tall and lean-waisted and so I get a good fit on him with aplix, and they are slim in the crotch which also suits him.

Teamed up with either a Tots Bots wrap or Motherease Airflow/rikki wrap and they are a solid nappy - there are better ones and worse out there. I have only tried the Version 1 so don't know what the Version 2 is like. I know with the V2 they have added a pocket for adding boosters and they have poppers on the front so you can adjust the size for smaller babies (the new V2 size 2 fits from 9lbs-30lbs so you could use it as a btp whereas the V1 fitted from 18lbs-35lbs).

My advice would be to buy some preloved as there are plenty around at reasonable prices.

Hope this helps.

thanks :) I've passed on the comments and advised her to get one of the small packs to see how she gets on with them.


Thank you!!
