I bought these as my initial step into cloth nappies... I liked the idea of sized nappies as I was a bit weary around the idea of a one sized nappy.... I am delighted with them! great day time nappy- I'm finding after each wash the absorbency keeps getting better and better.... I've noticed the nappy dries very quickly, but the bamboo inset takes up to 24 hours (I finish for 10 mins in dryer to be sure to be sure they are dry!) - I wonder if I got a few extra inserts if they would help with managing if my wash routine falls out of sink (leaving me low on nappies?)
I was initially a bit weary with nappies leaving red marks on baby's legs- a google brought up 'sock marks' from the elastic as a common cause with cloth nappies in general and nothing to worry about- and actually after a few wears these marks have become less and less - and baby certainly not bothered by them.
The kit had all I needed to get started (I also bought 2 wrap and fitted nappies to try)... the bin and wash bag are great, the fleece liners are amazing at wicking away wetness (I'm actually in awe of this element and was my biggest worry about moving to cloth and would have been a deciding factor if I would return to disposables if baby's skin was wet)
All in all I am so happy with having moved to cloth nappies- and I am in love with the little lambs... I've a lot to learn yet- but iv purchased a few more bits since (boosters/extra fitted nappies/ bamboo wipes) and I know once my baby is ready for size…
