Just curious, did you get yours from the US, or through NZ suppliers?

I checked out a few places (NZ and USA) and decided to purchase from www.weebunzdiapers.com

Fast and very friendly and helpful service - I would definitely shop there again! :D

I can't remember for certain sorry (and I can't check our credit card statement cos I don't want to see where DH has been Christmas shopping :wink:) but I'm pretty sure it worked out to $29 per nappy, including shipping for three of them.

I'd email companies in the US and Australia for shipping quotes and use your bank's online conversion rate tool - I'm not sure which would be cheaper? :smt102

Doesn't sound to be much in it really. Probably easiest to just get them from Aus. I'll look into it. Thanks!

Well no leaks this time either. One more time without leaks and I'll deam the problem solved. I think that strip wash may have been what it needed...

BG seem to be the only nappy I haven't had leaks with. Well, when I say haven't, I have had the odd leak here and there as i've left it on too long so that's completely my fault. I think the fit is the best of any nappy I have tried yet I think. The only thing is I'm not great lover of the original outer material, but as that's not on the new ones i'm really looking forward to trying these. Just have to find the best (and cheapest) place to get them. I really love the fit of the bamboo ones too. They're so incredibly trim, and lovely and soft. I'd love a few more of these too... :lol:

I have to say I am very impressed with bumGenius! V2.0. The fit is superb and it doesn't leak, even after leaving it on for far too long today while out shopping :oops:.

Now I know what all the fuss was about and why farlos (carriefarley) loves them so much.

I wonder how long it will take for DD to work out how to take them off with the velcro, already had a couple of goes at it :roll:

Anyhow they get a big :smt023 from us.

I will post a pic in the gallery later.

Just had to add that today was the first time I had left DD for longer than an hour (yep, after almost a year its true!!).

DD spent the day with her Daddy and I was so happy to hand her over with a nappy bag of bumgenius naps. DP has never changed her unaided (all of 2 times that he has!)...anyhow, when I came home he is raving how great they were!

Now my point is that these are so easy to put on and don't EVER seem to leak, they are DP proof! :smt041

Another big :smt023 from us - now all THREE of us :lol:

Ahhh, now he has no excuse not to change her... hehe

Hi Karen,

Just noticed your post on BG nappies and am so happy you like them so much. I still haven't got one of the new ones, and am really going to have to get one as people seem to like them. I'm off now to look at the pics in the gallery...

Btw, I'm enjoying the lovely warm weather here in Tassie. Off to the cricket today... :D

Haven't tried any Aus nappies here yet, but intend to get some to try. :wink:

With the velcro - do they have laundry tabs? I have a fitted that I never got round to sewing the laundry tabs onto, and I can never remember to turn it inside out and do it up when its dirty to wash it - and now the suedecloth is all pilled as the hook sticks to it in the wash....

Its the only thing holding me back from getting some of these...
