I hate BM's with a passion. I might have stuck cloth out longer when Dawn was born if it hadn't been for their awful wraps (How stiff are they?!) and their rubbish quality pre-folds (Overlocking at ends started to come apart from just prewashing
). And like Steph said, they just aren't soft at all.
And they're rubbish instructions too. Yes the pad fold thing is 'quick and easy' but it's terrible for keeping stuff inside the nappy
Our local nappy shop raves about how great they are. I hope she's never telling a first timer when I'm in there
I wish I was as 'clued up' on cloth back then as I am now.
I am however going to buy/make some lovely pre-folds for number two (I'm a nappy fold geek! Lol)
