Thats a really good start! I loved Green kids pockets on William they fit really well (he was a big baby though)

I think tots wraps are huge. In the very early days I'd allow for 10 a day at least. Cant think of anything else off the top of my head.

You have a great little collection there.
I personally loved my little lambs and wraps (but they were boring white). However I have heard people that have had trouble with the fit of the little lamb wraps. The little lamb wraps are a very similiar fit to the tots wraps (although the LL's tabs cross over more, and fit a smaller baby). You might also want to pick up a motherease wrap, there are heaps of them in small selling in good second hand condition and people rave about these being 'bomb proof'.

Seems like a nice selection to get you started there. You can always top it up as you go along and work out what you like (or get tempted by the beautiful things people talk about on here :wink: )

As pp's said though, you can't be Motherease Rikki wraps on a newborn, I swear by them.

My thoughts exactly... I thought I was pretty 'hip' with my rainbow bamboozles and pink BumGenius until I stumbled across this lot :lol: In a matter of weeks my collection now includes some very colourful nappies from Upsy Daisy, Happy Heiny, Happy Cheeks, Kaypee and I'm going to have custom Weenotions made for Anna :shock: :D :D

And yes I love, love, love my Motherease wraps too! :lol:

Agree with the others it is dangerous coming on this board :twisted: far too much temptetion.

I would go with the advice of topping up once you know what works as I bought loads of mother-ease wraps as heard great things about them but didn't like them on my DS the elastic irrated him but I love Weenotion wraps.
