Milly is a tiny little thing (just 7 lbs 12 at 2 months) and a heavy wetter to boot. I bought a variety of NB nappies to try but my favourite combination is a simple prefold with either a thirsties or weehuggers wrap. Great at bf poo containment and very economical.

@docmaggoo - Kirsty has the GN/boy stash and I have the girly ones so there's plenty to choose from :wink: :giggle:

:hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho:

You ladies are hilarious!!! It'll be a while before I do actually buy any nappies - want to make sure all is well with bubs before I do that!

@docmaggoo I think we will try to find out the flavour of this one too. Depends if bubs (or "dino" as DH has nicknamed the poor thing already :roll: ) allows us to!

After early scan when we just saw a flutter of heartbeat, the sonographer said she couldn't tell us if there was just the one in there or two. DH is now rather worried... (I have twins in my side of the family) :shock: :hohoho:

The perfect combo!! :giggle:
Eleanor has worn all of james' nappies that I kept as they were gender neutral. He only had 1 really boy one which was a present from @monkeyhanger on his 1st birthday (gorgeous weenotion with planes on) plus I've added loads of girlie ones ;)

I never really got on with my teeny fits... but that was before I'd discovered LL boosters as they would have stopped the leaks! I found XS BG AIOs fab fab fab and would definitely recommend them! I also found that muslins (in a joy fold) and prefolds were great for stash boosting when I was going through 10 nappies a day. I didn't have little wool but that would have been useful- I just used small wraps. Oh, and my Flips fitted Rory from when he was 6lb7oz! I'd definitely recommend them as they are also fab for when you're going through nappies quickly as drying time is so fast!

Very exciting! I can't wait to build a newborn stash again!!! So happy for you :yahoo: :wine:

We have a shiney new bottom to swaddle in cloth (12 days old to be precise)
We took BG xs to hospital so the mw could cope with cloth and I knew i was having a cs.

We are now using TB cotton tots nippa as i got them really cheap and i know that i can hammer them with loads of washing/drying and I wasnt that fussed about them getting stained.

We use a mix of wraps in nb/xs/sz 0 from ME, cotton bottoms and TB.

TBH though - DS was born 9lb 4oz and the nb wraps are getting a bit snug -although the absorbancy is great as it looks like ive got another heavy wetter!! Might be moving onto my bamboozle stash fairly soon if his rate of widdling keeps up. :giggle:

PS Congrats on your :pregnant: :D really pleased for you both!
