Thanks ladies, I see a lot of preference for AIOs, I don't really consider them a cheap option though. Like I said, I have plenty of AIOs and BTP pockets for the next stange when they build some chub, I am really looking into more prefolds now to be honest (or cheap reliable fitteds :)) I really need trim-fitting options, as I remember this is what put me off and made me postpone using cloth on my babe until after two months.

Diddy diapers & Motherease sandies are good fitted nappy choices for newborns. Everyone seems to get them & be delighted with them.

This site has organic cotton terries in newborn size for £3 each & it has folding instructions. They also have a 6 pk of 50cm bamboo terries for £24.

If you don't want 6 bamboo terries you can buy them individually here for £4 each.

The cotton terries for the newborns are smaller than the bamboo terries but the bamboo are more absorbant.

Do you need a wrap with a diddy diaper? and why do people prefer them with nippas and not applix?

Thanks!

People often go for nippas over snaps or applix because you can get a better fit as you fasten it excatly where it needs to be. I always used snaps or applix and never thought I needed anything else...

Also, applix gets a bit old and tired and worn after a while, which makes a nappy which is otherwise in excellent condition look much more used.

If I did it again I would use bamboo terries as they are so trim, am using them now on my 7 month old. Also like diddy diapers as they fit really nicely, but are more bulky. I also like muslins pad folded in cotton bottom wraps. Dead easy. i didn't get on with sandys, though I had loads of them. found them hard to fasten.

This is the cheapest place I've found for bamboo terries, http://www.realterrynappies.co.uk/terry ... 5-31-p.asp

but looks like they've just put up their prices! still the best deal around though, I think.

Thanks, Mudita, for the tip :). I am also looking into ebay bamboo, to buy by the meter and make my own bamboo terries.
Ems101, call me fussy, but another reason I prefer nippas on a newborn is that the fasting looks so trim compared to the aplix, which looks absolutely huge on them. Plus, flexible as they are, I hate the idea of curling the baby up and having the aplix sink into his tummy.
