Ah now thats a better pic Sharon :wink:

I love using the snappi and have made more bamboozles take-offs out of Rosie's sherpa and I'm about to do some out of BKT. I *think* it's my favourite with no cover or a knitted soaker.

Hey guys, I have just ordered my bamboozles from Kate. Can't wait till they arrive...soooo excited. I am keen to get a nappy for night that is 100% natural fibres...so I am going to use one of these and a wool cover from rosies. Hopefully it works. She is in her nappy for about 12 and a bit hours, and her little skin gets a bit red at times. The info on the bamboozles suggests that these are great for sensitive skin.

Just wondering if I can wash these with my prefolds and covers?

Hmm where to start. With the positives I guess:
- it looks & feels nice and compfy
- fitted from newborn and still now at over 9 kgs
- It's really trim and has a nice fit
- attached booster is great for getting absorbancy where needed most
- good absorbancy

ok now for the negatives:
-takes forever to dry (even in sunny southland)
-Since it has no fleece lining, Ellis's butt feels wet. So usually I use it with a microfleece topped booster or just a microfleece liner

Ok, to ask a silly question, what's NEFPUC? :oops:

Seeing as this thread is active.....I've had my bamboozles a few months now and they are still by far my softest nappies. If they dried faster they would be the perfect nap!

I got one on trademe a week or so ago and it's still on the line waiting to dry and be tried for the first time! No, it hasn't taken a week to dry, just been on the line for a few days and as it's got wet it's drying all over again! It'll be there for a couple more days the way it's going! Looking forward to trying it for the first time. It is very similar to the Wam-Bamboo as far as I can tell.

Hannah has her Bamboozle on tonight with an Swaddlebee hemp insert and Designer Bums wool cover. Will see how she goes with that.

Unfortunately she looks to have finished her super-wetter phase so I can't test it out with her usual "defeat all combinations of absorbancy" peeing. (How am I even saying "unfortunately" to that - I hated super-wetter phase!!!)

So yeah, has only been washed twice so can only get better.

My Bamboozle collection is growing! (2 arrived today and another one on the way :D ) I'm using it on Joel all the time, even though he's having fequent changes I do use this one for night for when he sleeps slightly longer. I also boost it with a fleece topped micorflbre booster, just because I want the stay dry layer next to his little botty, so that would be their only down point for me (oh, plus the dry time, but in the summer it's not too bad. Dreading winter without a dryer though!).
DH likes them too and this morning said he was impressed with their newborn poo repelling ability ie easy to clean :wink: .
