Hi there ladies, a question that has been trotting in my head for a while now, what is the best choice in terms of nappies for a newborn? I've used disposables until my babe was 2 months old, so don't have this experience. I am interested in an economical but efficient option, slim fit and good containment. I've got plenty of pockets and two parters for older baby, when I started with cloth I used to nippable bamboo nappies and now I am into pockets BTP. I tend to lean towards prefolds for newborns, would that be o correct choice, and if yes what brands you found great. Many thanks, c.
I used mainly Chinese folded muslins with a ME Rikki wrap, v affordable and they get used as general mop-up cloths now. I also had a couple of rumparooz lil joeys, which were great but only really lasted about 2 weeks before she was out-peeing them!
Peanut's stash is teenyfits, some size one stretchy bamboozles (bulk of stash) and a couple of nb bugga bugga basics that have a snap down for the cord stump. Can't wait to see him in his teensy fluff!
I tried loads! Our fave were terry squares. Cotton for super fast drying and bamboo for aborbency. They are both super cheap and versatile. Both trim and can durable. Perfect for new born stage when they go through tons of nappies
Our favourite had to be nippa'd Diddy Diapers - they were fantatsic I also removed the applix from several Little Lambs and nippa'd them and they came a close 2nd.
Prefolds - I used some OWW's (OweWhoaWhen) and liked these too, either nippa'd with wool or a simple tri-fold with a Thirsties Duo Wrap - I think the wrap is just as important as the prefold really, and this was a good combination.
Teenyfits are fab, we used xs holdens landings, dunk n fluff, little gumnut, xs sandies and size 1 little lambs Pre-fold wise I love OWW's and little gumnuts just tri folded and popped in a wrap which works really well and last our heavy wetter though to waking for his night feed x
