Not quite sure I understand your first question hun. Bum Genius and Blueberry are pockets, and yes you can just buy one or two to try them out. In fact Blueberry are only sold individually, making them a rather pricey option but I think they are worth it to have a few "special" ones lol!

Prefolds are more economical for a sized option (i.e. you only want them for a short time until Maddi is potty training so wouldn't benefit much from a one size nappy) and again you can just buy one or two. Mothercare do a trial pack for the Smart Nappy that just has one wrap and pad. With these they do recommend a liner but there's no need with pockets.

I use Bum Genius pockets without liners. I dont really like the flushable liners as they feel really papery I prefer the fleecey feel of the nappies. Ive never used prefolds so dont know anything about them. Pockets or all in ones are probably the best option for you to try. I would get maybe one of each brand to try maybe a itti bitti d'lish, BG and a blueberry. Ive heard toddlers are quite good at getting velco nappies off so you might want to stick to poppers.

thanks shifter, my first question was i like the pre-folded and the bumgenius and blueberry one's, so i was wondering if i can just buy one and see, but you've answered my question just get one and give it a go

yep - exactly maddi's probably not going to be in nappies for that much longer x

sparks - yep that is an excellent point! think i will try a poppers one! she gets her shoes off no problems, so i wouldn't want to think what she could do with a nappy

mrs n - tell me about it, my heads spinning, i'm sure i'm making it much more confusing than it is!!

sara - thats really helpful! thank you

i found it easier to just to buy a trail pack tbh. i kept reading all this stuff, prefolds/pockets/all in ones. i found it made much more sense when I saw them and tried them etc.

Try doing the questionnaire on www.nappylady.co.uk to find out what might be ebst for your needs. Also, check if your local council do any kind of incentive scheme for the use of reusable nappies, some give vouchers.

My council do a free trial pack which consists of a nappy bucket, 1 Little Lamb fitted and wrap, 1 Motherese fitted and wrap, a pack of flushable liners. Other councils do a money off voucher. Definitely worth checking what yours offer.
