I did and I love, love, loved them!! I used a whole range of them but my favs were fuzzi bunz (these are sized nappies) and now I have dd2 back in them and i also use Little comforts which are a 2 part system. Why don't you post on Mums and kids as a few of us have used them over there and you will get detailed replies. I am off to leaba now but will reply with better explanation tomorrow. Oh and check out MM they have a whole forum dedicated to clothies! http://www.magicmum.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=122

Thanks so much girls! HAve just read all those posts, and feel so optimistic and enthusiastic about it! Was lying in bed thinking about it last night and was starting to go off the idea, but now i'm really interested. Just told DH and his reaction was pretty funny, but he's up for it too!

I had the Little Comforts and I wasnt impressed TBH. DS only had it on for and hr and the whole nappy was soaked through, front and back all around his bum/back and front even the waterproof liner was damp. I had washed and dried them 5 times before I used them and all and had used liners and boosters too. Have to say I havent used them since. Also no one says how bulky they are, although that may be that particular brand. There is no way Id get his 3-6 month vests or clothes on him with them so that is another consideration.Just my opinion! :wv

Does anyone know if there are any "nappy experts" around south west Dublin who will come to your house with different brands to show you the difference between them all? And also that you can get rent some for a trial run? I dont want to spend hundreds on a brand and then hate them O:|

Two part nappies are quite bulky, pockets are as slim as a disposable. I only use two piece at night as I find it very hard to get DS's trousers over them. Desperate4bfp, check on Magicmum for nappy agents. I know there is one for Little Comfort nappies but not sure if they show you all types or just LC ones. It is very helpful to see them all before hand and get to grips with the different types.

Im keen to try the fuzzi bunz but Im confused about sizes. Should i wait until baby is born to get them? Also do I get 'perfect- size' or 'one- size'? Ive gotten a few funny looks when I tell people Im taking the reusable route so want to prove them all wrong by having no accidents.

Doolittle i have little lambs and they are v like little comfort. Def way more bulky than the fuzzi bunz. I much prefer the fuzzi's. You may just have a heavy wetter. Did you use bamboo boosters? Brunette i have medium size fuzzi's. I haven't used the one size but i'd be inclined to buy the smallest ones u can get for a newborn. I LOVE my fuzzis and am hoping to get rid of my little lambs and just get more fuzzis as they are way more convenient.
