I like these, I now have a complete set. I only use for day time. I still use a disposable at night , but that's my preference. I find as my daughter has skinny legs that at current I use a nappy wrap. ( a bambino mio one) over the top to prevent any poo leaks. I have only had one or two, but I'm a safer than sorry sort of person. When she gets bigger I don't see this being a problem . Or if your baby had bigger legs, not skinny ones you would most like be fine. But using wraps over the top is still cheaper than using the big name brands. Which I'm sure I would have the same problem with anyway. I did use another nappy system for a while, inserts and wraps, but couldn't get on with those, I had poo leaks every time . These are much better and nicer.
They wash up well, no stains. The covers dry over night, the bamboo inserts can take up to two days though inside.
But the bamboo are softer, and layer for layer more absorbent than microfiber , And apparently microfiber can smell sometimes after a while!
The different colours these come in is fab, the cow print brown, black and white, purple/blue hearts, red hearts, pink hearts all have a soft fleecy outer. The others are all the normal ones. They all have the same water proof layer in though.
When preparing you need to wash the outer cover 2 times and the bamboo inserts at least 4 times to make them absorbent, but wash them separately . This is because bamboo contains natural chemicals that you have to wash out , but can effect the waterproof layer of the pocket cover. Which would make them leak. After this you can wash them together.
With two inserts in they are not that bulky , my 15 week old daughter (11lbs) can still move her legs around just fine and scoot across the floor!
