Just a little thought here....I almost gave up on cloth when I first started with ethan as I coudnt get nippas to fasten his nappies properly .....it turned out that sometimes bamboo doesn't nippa very well and therefore that could be why you are having trouble as I did. In the end when I tried nippas on different fabrics (not microfibre) but cotton ect and even some bamboo fabrics I found the nippas realy easy to use! Just a thought sweetie. X
If my newborn stash hadnt been packed away already at mikes parents 25 miles away ready for when we move as we wont need them for the first few weeks i would have lent you some of my nappies hun! I just cant get hold of them at the moment unfortunatly.
