Thank you for your comments.
Yes most people do say the look and fit of the Weenees is excellent.
and that they don't leak even with the more "explosive" poo (which can be hard to contain in any diaper) so that's all good
When you say the pants are leaving marks on your bub it suggests you are doing them up too firmly, just slacken them off a bit and this will stop (the elastic waist will let you do them up much tighter than they need to be). The waist should not be tight at all. The tabs shouldn’t be pulled but simply closed otherwise it will leave marks.
I emailed my supplier as I’d never heard of this problem and she has emailed me back saying;
"No we have never had any problem with the pouch binding, this is the softest most comfortable binding we have ever found.
I can only assume this particular customer has a rare sensitivity to it. I can’t see any practical way around it as it is an integral part of the design and is part of the reason why we have no leaking or wicking."
She also asked me to ask if your baby is sensitive to any other types of materials?
As for the sizing the 0-2 years should go from 6-12kgs and so they should be the right size but having said that there are all shapes and sizes of babies – The Weenees should rest below the waist on bigger bellies
Re the Disposable Pads - I used them with my babies and they were fine.
Most people who do use them reorder them and they are the most popular method for absorption for the Weenees in the USA & possibly Australia.
Having said that most people here in NZ preferr to use cloth and I certainly only used the Disposable Pads when I went out or away for the weekend.
The Eenee Microfiber Nappies are way more popular here in NZ as they are so absorbent and quick and easy to wash and dry - Also very reasonably priced.
There is a great video you could watch to get a few tips as well. It's on the American website - (Weenees are called gdiapers in USA as Weenees mean something else over there)
Their site is www.gdiapers.com
and the video link is:http://www.gdiapers.com/watch_vid
I guess that you're right - not every nappy works for everyone - We do have thousands of very happy customers though and sales are virtually all word of mouth and repeat business which is very important to us.
People LOVE them because:
There's no need to wash the whole system with every change.
In fact all you need to wash most changes is the microfiber nappy which is small but super absorbent and quick and easy to wash and dry.
So you are saving time, energy, water, and the planet.
Also you save heaps of money – you don’t need so many pairs. Extra Pouches mean extra nappies and they are very reasonably priced.
Occasionally the Pouch may get soiled but it is easy to wash and dry quickly -just throw it into your washing machine or air it out if it's slightly damp.
You only need to launder the outer Pants every couple of days or so as they shouldn’t get soiled/wet.
Hope this helps
