Any recs for generously roomy clothes compatible with cloth bums? Have heard that Tesco is a good bargain option and at the other end of the scale I love Frugi for a treat but any other suggestions? B is only 8 weeks so rompers etc esp required!

I find that H&M clothes are pretty good for fitting over cloth. E has got some cute baggy trousers and jeans from there and other nice bits. They're a good price too.
For babygrows I've always used Tescos, Sainsburys and Boots. I've always had to size up early though I'm afraid. I also found leggings an easier and longer lasting option.
Vest extenders are great for getting more use out of vests and especially great round bulky nighttime nappies.
They fit with tesco vests, some sainsburys, most Boots ones and all m&s ones (that I've tried anyway!)

We use vest extenders with some vests (mainly cheaper ones but generally seem to be ok). Boots and Mothercare vests/babygros seem to fit ok over cloth, although we did move A into 3-6 months at about 10 weeks. He's on the 75th centile for height and weight though so they were getting quite short in the body anyway.
We do have problems with trousers and some dungarees though, they just won't fasten ove cloth (especially the summer short legged ones)

H&M. Look for ones that are stretchy round the leg and have poppers on the shoulder rather than an envelope fold.
