I am after some recommendations for osfm pockets.

DS is 10 weeks and it looks like he will be long and thin. I would like something that will last until he is tt.

I would prefer bamboo inserts, snaps and a smooth outer.

I thought I had settled on rumparooz, but I have had a few leaks, although that could have been user error (I am using the bigger insert with the nappy snapped to the smallest setting.

I also have some issy  bears and they are great for night but a bit  bulky for daytime.

The bbh I have started to pill after the first wash

Thanks for your advice!

I love Swaddlebees which come with bamboo inserts and bamboo boosters. DS is 35% for weight and 97% for height so long and thin! They work great on him and he has been in them since 6 weeks old.

Unfortunately, they are not cheap- around $40 per nappy.  sad.gif  Great quality though, so I hope they will see me through several babies.

Greenkids are my favourite OSFA pocket. But they use velcro, not snaps.

I have Rumparooz too but haven't used them on an older child. I really like them. They are one nappy that never ever leaked, even on my newborn.

I'm using bumgenius 4.0s on both my 6 week old and my 23 month old. I love them!

The inserts are microfiber, the outsides smooth and you can choose beteeen snaps and Velcro. I have the snaps and they are great

Yes, small insert only. I started using the larger insert snapped down to it's smallest setting after about 5 months I think. I found them to be excellent in terms of their fit.

I  started on the second rise snaps then when I sized it down I just kept the same insert. Will try the smaller one
