I know I'm a newbie but is it okay to not like wonderoos or am I committing a sin? They seem to have such great reviews but I am not liking it at all. Its bulky, messy looking, bunches up and i really don't like it. Am I alone or just not doing it right? :?

Hello and welcome to the board - of course it's alright not to like a nappy and we are here to answer questions new or not!! I, for some reason, decided I didn't like them without even trying them which is a bit of sin as I have tried most nappies!!!! I think there will be a few other girls with you, seems they are a bit marmite like from what I can gather!

Hi and welcome :D Im with you on the Wonderoos - they really are a love/hate thing, I found them reliable, the colours were lovely, they washed really well too, but I didnt like the shape and so ended up selling them on. Most of us have differing opinions on different nappies - we wont hold it against you :lol:

Hello there.
I really wanted to love them after they got all the good press, but never really did. Used them for a while, but we found them bulky at the front, and not the right fit for Kayleigh. The thing to remember is children are different shapes, and what might be absolutely perfect for one child might be a nightmare on another.

HI and welcome,

I must love Wonderoos as I know I have a few and I love all my nappies (although a few that do up with velcro sometimes bunch up and leave a mark on Williams tummy)

Love

I haven't tried them so don't have an opinion, but mostly wanted to say hello :D

I have one and I quite like it. It wouldn't be my favourite by far, but it's reliable and containment is fab. It's not the prettiest and it is a bit bulky though. And Rhys has managed once to open it :shock: even though it's poppered!

Wonderoos are on my 'to avoid' list. I can't remember why, off hand, but I must have a reason not to like them without even trying them. :lol:
