Thinking of getting a blueberry - should i/shouldnt i?

Postby happytails » Mon Feb 02, 2009 2:42 pm

Been looking and have fallen in love with the blueberries but they are very expensive brand new so would probably buy second hand.

What do you find good/bad about them and is the one size any good?

Thanks

I have a couple of aplix BBOS. I like the fact that they come with a OS combo insert - MF on top of hemp works well for us. However, I found that this insert was way too bulky initially for DD - it made the legs really gape on her and we had to use alternative inserts. And I also found that they could leak BF poo. But now she's bigger they're a great fit on her.

Just bought two of the popper one sizes and they're great - good fit on my 9 month old (c. 8.5g) DD. They dry really well and have a high wow factor and resale value.

My little girl is due in just over 3 weeks and was hoping the small or the onesize would be a good fit.

Got my eye on a few on usednappies.co.uk - really shouldnt as i have like 50 nappies already but i really cant resist!

Get a WeeNotions embroidered onesize instead, they're far prettier and so much better IMO. I didn't like the Blueberry
Onesize at all but I don't really like applix fastening nappies. I do have a few side snapping Blueberries but still prefer my WeeNotions.

Don't like the OS they are way too bulky on my LO, but the SS are lovely and trim, I also found we got wing droop with OS as my LO is soo skinny!! The small still fit her now at nearly 7 months so not too bad IMO!!

Agree that WN are prettier. just wish that the OS fit Iris better - I've had to swap two popper WNOS nappies as the gape around her legs was large enough for a bus to fit through. :( That's the downside of poppers - less adjustable than aplix. But then, Iris can also undo aplix in a flash, so that's a problem too.
