Right....

After having discovered that all of my stash apart from Minnie O's, WN and BBOS are gaping round Poppys legs, I have decided to sell off what doesnt fit well and try some fitteds and wraps....

When I 1st started using cloth I had a BTP set of Bamboozles and wraps....I didnt know anything else existed lol....now I know better lol, I am at a loss as to what I should try? Its like being a cloth novice all over again lol

Poppy is very long and skinny, so am unsure what will suit her, and what sizes I should go for?? I am having a WN wrap custom made, and am planning on ordering 2 northern lights as I know Large WN fit well......but what else would you all recommend trying?? Also I would prefer to use PUL wraps in the day so what is there out there that you lovely ladies can recommend??

Also if anyone has anything they might want to sell that you think might suit my girly girl then let me know :)

I definatly want to try a tiddlybums, but apart from that I dont know where to start!!!

I just bought a KAypee fitted from ALi and I love it its a really good fit and I'm tempted to get more. My wraps are boring and I actually need to upsize I've heard nothing but good things about Weenotion wraps. I dont have any but I'm tempted by them too :D Not may options there sorry I'm more off a pockets girl :mrgreen: :lol:

Nature babies wraps are lovely, and there are usually a lot selling cheap on sites such as this one (how big/old is Poppy again?) I would advise against tots for a skinny baby. Oh, and motherease airflows are great because they have poppers at the legs and waist, so they adjust well.

I w0uld rec0mmend s0me nippa nappies maybe as y0u will get a better fit with them. What ab0ut s0me clwt twt nappies (terry 0uter and bamb00 inner) 0r s0me bimbles (nice a cheap and I f0und them a great fit 0n Zach). The clwt twt c0me in different c0l0ured 0uters as d0 the bimbles (alth0ugh I f0und that the c0l0ur faded in the wash t0 alm0st white)

Hmmmmmmmm, Zach can be a skiny leg 0ne but his legs have chubbed up again (usually a sign 0f impending upward gr0wth). I f0und blueberrys a g00d fit 0n him but 0f c0urse they are a bit expensive.

Wrap wise - I am a ween0ti0nah0lic I afraid s0 n0 new ideas fr0m me, but I did have a p0p0lin0 wrap that I really liked.

Ryan has extremely skinny legs. The pockets we use are WN, petite toddler fuzzis, bumgenius and blueberries. We have a few bumbles but most of our fitted nappies and wraps are US and UK WAHMs. I just make sure they have poppers at the legs and waist. Nature babies and ME airflow wraps also work well for us.
