    I need to buy some disposables for my holiday next week. I assume size 3 should fit as phoebe was 11lb 2 last week when she was last weighed. I'm getting the asda little angels ones as that's what I used overnight before I started using cloth full-time.

    Anyway, my question is what is the difference between the different types? There are new arrival, comfort dry and action fit to choose from and I haven't got a clue which would be best. Does it even matter?

    Thanks :flower:

    size 3 will be fine hun. Action fit are apparently a bit thinner for when LO is more mobile but I don't see much of a difference to be honest! I think that you get more nappies in the comfort dry packs so if you're on a budget I'd get those :)

    I know size 3 will be ok for weight but if your LO only has a little bum and legs they will be too big. Niamh was 12lb10 when she was weighed 3 weeks ago and were still in size 2

    Action fit and supposed to be cut different so its easier for them when they are mobile

    Fran was 13lbs last Thursday and is still in size 2 Asda Little Angels, although she will be moving up to size 3 soon. She is a chunky monkey but they are very generous in their sizes and were quite big on her when she was 11lbs, so I would suggest going with the size 2 hun xxx

    If you do go with the size 3 then the newborn are good for during the day and comfort dry are designed for overnight if they sleep for a good few hours. The active fit are for those that are starting to move around xxx
