Anyone had any of these in their newborn stash? I've never tried them before (always used Little Lamb bamboos on my DD, which I think are pretty similar) but I managed to get a bargain on eBay so now have 6! They've arrived today and are in fab condition (in fact they seem new), one thing I hadn't realised before though is that, unlike LLs, you can't cross over the aplix tabs? I'm just thinking, will this not mean that they will be too big on a NB?
I'm wondering whether I can just nippa them if they're a bit big (even though they're not proper 'nippa nappies')? Or will I need to wait until baby is a bit bigger before I use them?
Can you tell I've never used cloth on a newborn
ETA: Meant to say, they are the old style Bamboozle - not the new 'Stretchy' version.
I used the on J when he was around 7 and a half pound. I used with little lamb size one wrap and I did cross the tabs over and nippa to start with. They give him a huge bum though so mainly just you round the house x
We used them on Rowan from about 8lbs and they worked fine although did give her a big bum compared to Diddy Diapers, Bambeasies etc. They did last much longer than our other newborn nappies though and I ended up buying a few extra ones too!

i'm using old style bamboozles on clara, size 2's that are too big so i'm nippa'ing. you do have to press the nippa in a little and make sure it grabs properly as the fabric isn't brilliant for nippas, but it does work fine. i occasionally find one part of the nippa undone when i come to change her but the wrap helps keep it all in place.
we nippa'd our tots bots aplix nappies on DS1 ages. he was on 5lb 13oz born, we started cloth nappies with him at 6weeks (had probs with BF- so put cloth to one side while I got the bf going!) using a nippa on our aplix nappies was the only way my skinny little boy was going to fit in them properly.
