following on from this post 'Comparison - Rumparooz/Bumgenius/Fuzzi Bunz and Others one-size (OSFM)'
I thought I'd add the following:
I'd since add that I am partial to Bumgenius simply because they are the trimmest of the AIO (All-in-one) nappies
but so far for newborn to 6mths, I'd go for a good fitted nappy and cover.
My favourite cover is Thirsties, with gussets. Soft and good for keeping the newborn poo, IN. :)
Favourite fitted nappy is home made bamboo with terry outer for Snappi-closure and best possible fit. With a 'turn down' rise (the front bit near the belly button) you can make a nappy bigger or smaller as needed. Snappi-ing is, in my opinion, the most versatile fastening option in fitted nappies. NB you need a 'terry' style outer (bamboo, cotton or hemp) to get the Snappi to hold.
I recommend Nurture Nappies
as a great store for customer service, information (if you're not sure just email) and products and services.
