So, with all the lovely deals going on this week Im finally going to get some real nappies. Ive had a look into it and have got one query, whats the deal with nappies with wraps and nappies without wraps, which are best/easiest?

Some say the two separates are better, as that's two sets of elastic around the legs to help stop leakage, rather than the one set that you get in an all in one. Also, in theory your don't need as many wraps as you have nappies.
However the all in ones must be more conveinent.

Thanks, that's what I'm thinking about convenience but without experiencing them I can't work out whether convenience outweighs extra security against leakage!

All in ones are more convenient, , but in the early days (especially if you're BF) the two parts worked better b/c they contained better. my daughter was fine in all in ones once she wasn't having milk, whilst my son had v skinny legs so the all in ones never contained him well
Two parters, a full absorbant nappy and a wrap are slightly bulkier but bombproof. Nothing escapes as you have two lots of protection. An all in one, absorbant inner and waterproof wrap together are slimmer and easier/ quicker to use. But the absorbant parts are usually boosters or a strip down the middle so don't hold quite as much. I use these in the day as still get 4 hours out of them and two parters all night

wmss I have a couple of 2 parters for night time and the more convenient and less bulky all in ones for the day.

2 parters are too much faff for me to use during the day but they are excellent at night. Never had a leak.
All in ones are easy, just like a 'normal' nappy but they're not as reliable as 2 parters and do leak occasionally but work much better with boosters.
Thanks ladies. ives found a good deal for the one parters on fill your nappy.co. so i could get those and then a 2 partners separately for nighttimes if these leak then?

Garfield - which one parters are you going for?
15/04/2013 at 17:11
What all in ones have you gone for G?
I would get some boosters too if I were you. Little Lamb's are good and quite cheap.

The bambino mio solo I think. They have a starter kit including everuthing for 199 pounds which looking at other prices seems quite reasonable?

My Tots Bots starter pack was quite a bit more than that!
15/04/2013 at 17:21
Most seem to be. It's got 50 quid off at the moment but sold out of the coloured nappies so I can't order yet!
15/04/2013 at 17:24
What website is it? Maybe I'm being thick but I can't find it?
(Or maybe my husband had blocked all nappy websites for the sake of our bank balance!!)

Sorry on phone so can't do a clicky. Go to fillyourpants.com, then I think it was under reusable nappies, then package deals?

Personally I wouldn't buy a starter pack without first trying them out. You could stand to lose the £200 if the fit is wrong for your LO/you don't get on with them.
I use the Bumgenius Freetimes and they are great. They are all-in-ones and don't require stuffing or anything, just a disposable liner to catch the poo (which you can then flush down the loo). Mine do not leak, except once or twice when myself or H put them on a bit wonky when first getting used to them. However, we only use in the daytime, and use a sposie at night.

I would second what saisi says - I got a trial pack of 3 different types then ordered more of the ones I prefered - if you don't get on with the mios it's a lot of money!
15/04/2013 at 20:24
I do think its a good idea to try a few different brands in case you don't get on with one. ButI have a mio solo and they are good, or so we think anyway.

Thanks ladies, I'll bear that in mind. I've seen some deals where you can hire a few different ones so I might try that
