Hi all,I'm expecting my third late this year and trying to plan my Nappying strategy sine I'm visiting the US next week and will stock up on supplies.  My youngest is 6 so haven't thought about nappies for quite a while. Previously I used Tots-bots for #1 and discovered fuzzibunz sometime during #2's time, I now live in Perth so drying time is not really a problem, but I was planning to stick with the funnibunz style.  I would never have thrown them but I have been searching the house for the fuzzibunz and hopefully they will turn up, but either way will probably buy more because I didn't really have enough before.So, a few questions for the experts:-was thinking about getting bumgenius newborn size whic I've never had before, My babies tend to be small so I expect to get around 6 months out of them, if not never mind, I know they sell well second hand.  I am a bit concerned about how they handle breast milk poos' from experience before disp never handled that and I always thought that tots-bots handled it better than any pocket diaper could.  But the reviews I've read for bumgenius seem to imply that nothing ever gets out, anyone can confirm or deny this?-I'm tossing up between fuzzibunz and bumgenius pockets for the next size up, leaning towards fuzzibunz as I've used them and they've worked well before, also as my babies haven't been big they've never gotten bigger than medium in them anyway, so I don't think that multi size is really a benefit for me, seems like going multi size just adds more bulk that I'm unlikely to use.  If anyone has experience with fuzzibunz M vs bumgenius 4.0, I'm interested in a comparison,Of course if I do all this planning I'll probably end up with a 9 pounder! Thanks for any tips,M
