Overall Comment:

*Jury out because only tried them once Remy is no longer really a newborn so I am not sure that my review is altogether fair considering these are a newborn nappy.

Detailed Comments:
I've just tried these as Lucy @clothsister sent them to me and have had a disaster every time! I'm guessing Remy is too big/old for them now at 11 weeks even though he still fits into them. The microfibre insert was just too small and even with the bamboo I got leakage after probably only a couple of wees. I have big man hands and found these really difficult to stuff, I needed to only do it with a couple of fingers to get the inserts in. They are cute and slim and I'd give them another go if I had another newborn to try them on to see if I got on better. Would defiantly add the bamboo booster, I honestly can't see just the tiny microfibre one being terribly good for any baby!
