If you want me to measure the rise any of the brands I stock, just let me know.

I agree with Shaunie that fitteds don't necessarily dry quicker, I prefer pockets for that.

I was told that if I wanted my nappies to last more than one baby, not to go for anything that needed the outer to be washed each time - so a 2 part system. Is that true?

It's not strictly true. Basically if you have lots of nappies, they will be used in a larger rotation which means there's less wear & tear on them. If you have a small stash and wash and use the same nappies on a very regular basis, they may well not last so long.

My friend had a medium stash of fuzzi's that she used on her 3 boys and only had to replace a few. It can also depend on how you wash and dry your nappies.

HTH :D
