The start of my NB stash!

Postby ems101 » Sun Nov 20, 2011 3:21 pm

Whilst in mothercare this morning, I found some smart nappies at 70% off. I know they get mixed reviews, but I got a starter kit - 4 wraps and 8 inserts for £12! The small size is 6-13lbs, so should be fine for a NB. Any thoughts on the smart nappy?

Haven't heard good reports about them at all but for that price you con't go wrong, they may turn out to be your dream nappy x

They didn't very well for us I'm afraid :(
The wrap gets wet with every change so you need a new one everytime.

I bought them when I was pregnant too but found better systems that worked.

The inserts are absorbent though so if you have problems with the wrap then you can still use the inserts

At least that!

And like Kirsty said, they were too much of a bargain, and if they dont work, not much lost eh?!

They are definitely a bargain!
Even if you have to use a new wrap each time, then that's fine too! I think I just had problems because I was using them exclusively & James was super skinny. If you've got other things in your stash you'll be fine!

I've no idea but at that price I would have bought them too, especially for a new-born :D

I had smart nappies for my DD a few years ago. We quite liked them. They're OK as long as you accept they don't last much more than a few hours, and as pp said, you do have to change the wrap every time. But they are great stash fillers at that price :thumbsup:

Never tried them but for £12 you can't go wrong. Even if they don't work you can always use the inserts as to boost other nappies or put them in pockets :wink:

WSS. They were a very good price even if they do end up just being inserts for other nappies.
