    Pocket nappies don't need a wrap, the PUL is stitched in
    I'll have a lookie and see, seems such a shame to cover stitching doesn't it?

    All seems really complicated to me :wacko:

    And why would you buy a lovely nappy like that if you just gonna cover it up .. seems bizarre.

    Can you personalised own design on pockets? thats wouldn't be so bad.

    Still think I'm off the idea for now tbh I can't get my head round it an as much as people say cheaper I can't see it will be when I see how much ppl spend on these nappies & extras ... think I'd be same LOL spend spend spend :lol:

    Think I'll consider getting head round it at a later stage rather than straight away!

    Yeah you can personalise them
    I know what you are saying about the cost, it can get really silly, i don't have very many for Jack really (not compared to Cat and Beanie LOL), messes with my head too much TBH
    Motherease are good Jack has some birth to potty ones and they are great, just plain but i just put nice wrap over them, but saying that no one sees it except me LOL

    Well I have spent about £500 on nappies I reckon. Of these most will do for the second baby, and those that don't I can sell and recover some of the cost. The ave cost of disposables for one baby for 2 years is £800, even with the cost of washing etc my nappies are cheaper then that. Bear in mind I have a lot of nappies too, most people have about 20 not the 35 I have. As for covering them up TBH that doesn't bother me. In the summer she usually runs round with a t-shirt and nappy on so you can see them, and in the winter I just love the fact she has cutte nappies on, always a talking piont at the Dr's and HV's lol. I see no difference betwen that and me wanting to wear nice underwear.

    I have about 15-20 thats all, thats 'cos i scaled down LOL
    It s nice for them to have nice nappies on and i do prefer my weenotions and plush bums, Doctors and HV faces are alwaya a picture LOL

    I don't know how much i have spent, would have to sit and work it out but was spending about £30 a month on disp nappies and managed to get Jacks starter set for £80 then just added bits and pieces every month

    Beanie you and others that are PG or gonna have more are going to save even more in the ong run, unfortunatley we aren't and i am dreading him coming out of them if I'm honest LOL

    I don't spend that much on disposable TBH - I buy the value pack and spend £20 Pm if that ... i end up buying nappies every 4wks with some left over
    Don't get me wrong she has a change everytime she poo's but i don't change her bum if it not that wet!
    So in the long run i think this is a cheeper option for me
