You have such a big stash of small nappies so if i were you i would just use muslins ect for the first few weeks if bubs does end up coming early and being on the small size hun.

Sandy was only 5lb 4oz but im not buying that many teeny teeny nappies as i think they are a bit of a waste, if needs be i will use muslins aswell.

Personally I wouldn't bother, ever if he is small he will grown fast and be out of them in no time, terries would be your best bet as they are cheap, fair enough if you've you money to spare, then go for it, but personally I'd rather save my money for smalls and mediums!

Are terries quite bulky? What terries do you prefer? off to have a nosey on the terries/prefold bit of the forum :giggle:

Dont really want to be spending alot, as i do have a lovely stash already that cost as fair bob and really havent got the funds for loads more, especially as they wont fit for too long.

TBH, having had a similar scare with Jake, I would hold off for now and if something does happen *fingers crossed it won't* get some terries etc when he is here and use muslins for a few days if you need to. If he is really early, he will end up in SCBU for a while anyway and a lot of SCBUs won't let you use cloth.

40cm bamboo terries are tiny, tell you what, wait, don't buy anything, PM me your address now, and if you go into labour early I will send you at least 5 40cm bamboo terries (I probably have more), they dry so quickly that you'd make do with just them and your muslins too
