I just got myself 19 new Mothercare shaped newborn nappies off eBay really cheaply. They look like this: http://www.milliemoos.com/index.php?act ... erry-nappy
I don't think Mothercare sell them anymore. At least I couldn't find them on their website.
They're fairly thin, but I don't think that's a problem, as I'll be changing nappies every 10 minutes anyway given how often a newborn poos.
They don't have much in the way of elastic, but I figure if I fasten them with a nippa I can make them fit quite well. And a well-fitting cover over the top should help containment as well.
What do you think? Has anyone tried these? They only need to get me through the first few months until baby is big enough for Motherease One-Size.
