Help-come on ladies...some advice please

Postby joodel » Tue May 20, 2008 3:52 pm

-My parents are going over to the UK in August to visit my B and SIL and kids and my mum has agreed to leave some space in her luggage to bring back a few nappies :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

So, Di (Diner on here) and I are thinking about maybe possibly starting up a WAHM-y business here in South Africa making nappies and NEED to try out some pockets especially...

What should we get then, and why? And where should we order from? We will be getting them delivered to my SIL's address in Birmingham...it would be a great saving on postage to get as many from one place as possible (the exchange rate is horrible at the moment: R15 for 1 GBP)

(Am almost definitely going to order at least one wee notion (but which type...day/night/pocket?????), and would like to try a quick flip too...)

Think we need at least one BTP nappy (eg Bumgenius?) and one side-snapping pocket (swaddlebees, pocketbots, weenotions???) plus one or two sized pockets (baby beehinds, greenkids, fuzzibunz).
Has anyone used a wahmie nappy?

HELP??!!! :wink:

I think you should also try out a pocket bots plus because the way they popper up at the sides really do mean they can adjust for different leg and waist measurements. David doesn't like poppered nappies, yet can manage to put these ones on OK. I like the way they have that extra bit at the back of the nappy top stop the insert coming out. They are also quite low at the front, which means you can get normal jeans on easier.

And definately look at weenotions, but I'm sure others can suggest which they prefer and why.

I'm stocking lots of WHAM nappies in my new shop, and building up stock all the time. I already have a few pocket bots, minkis, WeeNotions on the way, and some others from Continental WHAMS. I could certainly do a mixed bundle for you.
PM me if you want.

I would get a Wee Notions pocket and their new onesize pocket as well. Then I would also get a Pocket Bot. And for bigger brands, a BG is worth trying. Our other faves at the moment are Happy Heinys, Green Kids and for Ben Little Lambs or Bambineos.
