Just wondering if anyone had bought any of these yet and what you thought of them?
How do they compare to other OSFM pockets like Haute's and Bum Genius'?
TIA :)

I'd say they were a smaller fit than the Bum Genius or Haute. They just don't fit my 11kg chubber at all.

I use BumGenius and QuinnyBums. I probably prefer the QuinnyBums, they fit my daughter better and the velcro seems a bit more grippy. They don't come in colours and don't have laundry tabs for the velcro, but those things don't bother me.

My sister has had trouble getting a response about a faulty nappy though.

My Quinnybums have been given a hiding, and are standing up pretty well for what I paid for them. I had to replace the elastic in one, but I had to do that in a Fuzzi and Peapod too, and they had a much easier life! :lol:

Mine have been washed every day for about 8 months, and stripped countless times, thanks to Nana and her lashings of bum-cream :shock:

They are a smaller fit than BG, but I agree with Mel - for $15, I expect a performance below that of a $30 OSFA nappy, yet I have been as happy (or happier) with these than with some I have spent a lot more on. The crotch is too narrow for our night nappies though :(

Definitely recommend them to people building a quick stash or starting out with limited $$.

BTW, Sophie is an average 10.3kg and on the middle setting.
