I use my bold 2in1 powder when washing the nappies. Do you wash your nappies in bold 2 in 1? It is the only fabric conditioner that can be used on nappies because it is clay based.
I use Bold 2 in 1 to strip my nappies. It has to be the powder though, not the liquid

Which type of insert are you using? I normally use the stay dry but I think the organic is more absorbent.

im using stay dry, i dont like the idea of the wet feel on his skin! i tried fitteds but wasnt keen so im back to my bgs, i love the idea of reusing the wrap....meant to say it always seems to be on his right side either front or back :-? but when i put it on im checking it v v v well!??

i use a hemp little weeds prefold with a newborn BG MF insert in my flip covers instead of the staydry insert as we were getting leaks, works really well and still slim fitting. I've got one spare if u want to try, i'd say if this combo leaks it may well be a fit issue.
