    Default Real Nappies?

    Has anyone used these from NZ? I'm thinking about buying the birth to potty pack for our first bub but curious to know what others think. Cheers!

    I tried them briefly but preferred the peapods style. I found the real nappies quite bulky. I also liked to rotate with disposables (probably defeats the purpose of re-useables) but I don't like the idea of a wet cloth against my sons skin for any amount of time.

    TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!!

    They (Real Nappies) sell a trial pack, which includes one cover ("snug wrap"), a cloth prefold nappy/insert and a bamboo liner plus a helpful DVD & leaflet. (google 'real nappies intro pack')

    I bought an intro pack before my bub was born and liked the look of the system so got some more but still not a whole birth-potty pack.

    RN is a good simple system BUT try this experiment with the nappies you buy if you are at all concerned about breath-ability as I was... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKpCcUznbaI

    When I did this experiment I found out that Huggies are MORE breathable than Real Nappies Snug Wraps!

    I have a photo of my experiment in my reply to this thread: http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...py-rash!/page2

    I have the birth to potty pack, I got it on special at an expo. I had problems with bub having a BAD rash for weeks, finally figured it was due to my laundry liquid. I wash them with no detergent now. There's a thread on here somewhere under nappy topics I posted when I was having the troubles if u want to read. Overall now I really like them and find them very easy to wash and dry as they are flats, I don't know how I'd manage with some of those AIOs. They seem like they'd take ages to dry

    I did see your thread before thanks!

    I am looking at some of the AOI ones as well- so hard to decided!

    RN appeals to me for all the reasons you mentioned though. I might possibly just buy the newborn pack to see how I go... I like the idea of tw birth to potty pack- but what if I hate it or bubs hates it? LoL just a another decision I feel so unqualified to make :P

    Yes I was scared to spend so much without trialling too. But honestly they are fine, we don't have anymore blowouts than what a disposable could contain anyway and they really are great to dry quickly. Perhaps if you are going to get a trial pack see if there's one in crawler size. My DD was born 7.1pound, so not a huge bub and she grew out of the newborns very quickly. She's almost 4 months and still in crawlers. Not for much longer but they definitely lasted longer than the newborn size. I got the b2p pack for 480 and it's usually 600
