I would think (hope!) poppers, as the one size organic has been popular but is pricey and there seems to be a demand for the pocket with snaps. Now Toby can undo velcro on his nappies I've even converted some of my old v2s to poppers so he can wear with just a t-shirt when it is hot.

And the strechy tabs on the v3 leak dye (mine just went onto laundry tabs, but I know one Mum who just has BGs and with washing a whole load of them turned her inserts bluey green :shock:) so maybe some changes to those?

I live in hope of patterns, but patterned PUL is less reliable usually, so doubt it. Maybe gussets like on the flips?

Well, as I said earlier in the thread, I really hope it's not poppers, or at least that they keep both options. One of the appeals of them is that they are so much like a disposable, to use, so non-cloth people find them really easy.

I totally agree, that's why I wanted them for nursery nappies, not much they can do wrong

v3 is a fab nappy, and I would recommend it to anyone, but you might like the new one more, depending on what it is. I'm hoping for prints and/or poppers!


grrrr it's tomorrow sorry. The email today is to say they will be announced tomorrow. :roll:

Give them their due though, they know how to hype a nappy launch!
