We love the Zappy Nappies. All cotton (no artificial rayon "bamboo" made with tons of chemicals), very absorbent, great fit, totally adjustable, no fiddly tiny snaps to find in the dark. They are pretty, much less expensive, and are made by Australians in Australia.
We met the owner of the company in Eumundi, at the market. She designed these with so much thought. The velcro is totally covered, so no contact with baby skin. Also can be folded to keep it from getting fluff when washing. The inner booster is attached at one end to help it dry quickly. She added more layers when people asked for more. The pilchers have been redesigned and are now made of a better, more durable material.
For us, the Zappy Nappy system has been great. We add disposable liners to make cleanout quick. A friend told us she thought they didn't absorb well enough, but we found out she didn't wash them a few times before using them.
Can't recommend these highly enough, especially for cost!
these are ok for a fitted nappy. can be a bit tricky to put on a newborn but after a couple of weeks they are fine. can be a bit crunchy and hard after a day drying on the line in the hot sun. these are now my washing day / at home nappies
