There are a couple of excellent reviews in the newborn review section I suggest you have a good read of... There have also been a few posts about this recently that again make recommended reading.

Sorry to not be more specific but I'm off to bed and didn't want to read and run...

For Ben, I really liked Little Lamb bamboo nappies and wraps - a bit boring and white but very good fit and reasonably priced. I also liked Bambinex and Motherease Rikki Wraps.

Other idea are xs or small Fuzzi Bunz if you like the idea of a pocket. Or for very small babies bimble size 0 or swaddlebees ov newborns are good but I found an "average" baby grows out of these fairly quickly.

whatever you get, I would recommend LOTS (work on 12 changes per 24 hours!)

I usually find plain old boring newborn size flat terry squares are best for the first few weeks or couple of months. They're boring but easy to fit to any body shape and quick to drying and at least you won't spend a fortune on something that will only last a couple of months and in that time you'll get chance to find out what sort of nappy will sort your baby best (heavy wetter/chunky thighs/skinny waist etc). Plus they're good to have with you for mop up cloths during the newborn stage and you can always use them for boosting other nappies when babies get bigger :)
