Shaped nappies - what should I choose?

Postby sazuburns » Wed Oct 06, 2010 3:36 pm

Hi all, I'm new to this forum although I've been using cloth for around 10 years.

It seems that my dd's bottom isn't fond of artificial fibres, so I'm gradually getting rid of the fleecy-lined nappies in favour of those with more cotton or bamboo in the mix.

I like the Lollipop bamboo, I have a number of Motherease one-size and it's clones (Onelife, Popolini etc) but don't like the fit of these so much, and I have a few Motherease Sandys which are really great although they need boosting at night.

What else is there that I might like? I'd prefer poppers to aplix/velcro/nippers, and I'd quite like something colourful but that's not a dealbreaker.

Madam is 20 months but on the small side (she is still wearing 12-18 month clothing, and in some cases 9-12 month) and she isn't very tubby. Leg elastic is very important!

If nothing else looks good I'll get more Sandys, but I'd like to look at other options first.

Thanks

I think weenotions northern lights are good nappies. side snapping and you can get nice outers and bamboo inners :) Not overly expensive either.

I love our fluff n stuff and dunk n fluff nappies. Both are gorgeously soft and very well made.

tots stretchies? they might be a nice slim answer, made of bamboo :-) we can't use synthetic inners, but those nappies i can't part with i line with wool interlock :-)

TBH, if leg casing is a major factor (as it is for me) I'd just stick with sandys - you could always dye them with Dylon if you fancied a splash of colour.
Otherwise i find Baby Beehinds good too although i usually find birth-to-potty unreliable.

I'd second the totsbots stretchies, so soft and a fab fit, i boost one with a hemp little weed for over night and they last 12 hrs :D

They are aplix but it doesn't seem to age like on other nappies, i've had some for 6 months and the aplix still looks new :wine:

for good value go for tots bots or little lambs, the new versions have 10 % microfibre though so test one first. for fancy nappies go for dunk and fluff they are the best :D

Thanks for the ideas - lots for me to explore there.
