They are very similar to bumgenius, the only real differences are that they are way prettier but the tabs aren't as soft or stretchy as the bg.

I don't think the BB will wera as badly as the BG do, the tabs are diferent and I think they will look nicer for longer.

I have the swaddlebees econappi which is supposed to be the same as the BB deluxe (Swaddlebees and BB same company) and they are PUL outers - but only have them since yesterday so cant comment on how they wear. They feel and look very similar to the BGs, practically the same shape, but there is a popper option which means no velcro tabs to go grey or to catch and cause pulls on the nappy. Oh and I have a pink one which is a much prettier shade of pink than the BG, and the pink martini spots one which isnt as nice as I thought it would be but again prettier than the BG is.

However, after 2 washes the nappy leaked very badly - the insert didnt absorb any wee and was practically dry although the booster I had on top of it was sodden, so it will have to have a fair few washes before its up to holding a wee.

If the insert is the same one as the blueberry one-size hemp and MF one, then I would say, it's wonderful to have the combo, but we always add a small hemp booster as well. The BB one-size combo inserts are great, but there aren't really that many layers of hemp.

The insert is the big long one that folds in 3 - organic cotton velour to be the top layer to absorb the wee quickly and the next 2 layers hemp but as you say its not many layers of hemp and is quite slim so will definatley have to use a booster or another insert with it. It seems like its going to take a good few more washes to bring its absorbancy up but going to use the nappies with other inserts in the meantime.
