I am determined to get enough nappies to replace the BGs we have. Even if DH won't let me sell them, I want enough nappies so I don't have to reach for the BGs EVER... I hate hate hate them

We've now opened them up to the largest setting (she's under 18lbs) to try and combat the marks (has made little difference), so any reliability they used to have is pretty much gone too.
They also look soooo tatty and they are only 6 months old.
All in all, not impressed. If I was starting my collection again, I would NOT include BGs. I would probably go down the sized route instead.

I'm sure when she starts crawling properly or walking, her legs will slim down and she'll fit into them again. At the moment, she has REALLY fat little thighs, which just get rubbed a lot by the BGs. She's got quite a small waistline instead (with the usual baby belly over it, LOL). So, sometimes it's difficult to get a good fit with aplix fastening nappies.
HH OS are better cos the aplix crosses over (which we need for her little waist) and the fleece rolls out round her legs, so no red marks.
An example of odd fitting is - we use the tightest setting for the waist and the second tightest setting for legs on popper nappies (medium sized) and the waist gapes a little and the legs will have to be moved out again soon!! This is for Fuzzis and WN pockets.
