So why are they always so expensive preloved? What is it about them?

Are they? I have a bee one under E's bed that hasn't even been prewashed. I hated it on sight :oops: and never got round to sending it back :roll: I've never sold any of my nappies yet, maybe this would be a good one to start with. Can't answer your question though as I obviously don't see why they are so popular.

The bee is neutral. I sold mine on because I hated the shape. It was never going to fit Max in a million years.

The black fleece inner, it looked huge for a OSFM nappy and I thought the snaps were too close together.
I've got it out now and tried it on R for the first time and I know it will never fit. She is nearly 15 months and even with the front folded over the rise is too big and I know we would get terrible wing droop. She is petite (71cm, 18lb ish) but how on earth are these supposed to fit a newborn?

I'd say they are on the male side of GN, definitely not too girly.
I think this will be the first nappy I sell on, so when I've plucked up courage look out for it in classifieds.

I tested one and was exactly what I thought. I was very happy to give back the one I tried, didn't like the shape or the fit.

For newborn you fold the front down and it poppers over - there is a you tube video on it. BUT, the bottom area is so wide I still dont see how it would fit. Max is 10 months and about 19lbs and there is no way it would fit him.
