I have used normal disposables with my DS and after a nightmare potty training for two years with him, I started to look for better solution to the whole nappy-rush-yucky-changes thing and discovered EC. Elimination Communication is not as daunting as it may seem. With these flaparaps I potty my DD 24hrs a day and when I get tired just change the inserts as and when she wets them. Thw cloth inverts wash very well and dry in hours- a thin strip of cloth just changes colour when it is done :) useful for seeing if it is wet too while in the wrap :) the covers are very lovely, take little space in the changing bag and also dry very quickly. The best things I found was that I can change my baby at night silently if I need to (too sleepy to get up!), changing the insert is very quick and easy (as seen on the Born Ready website!) and the construction of the flaparap is very comfortable for the child- the straps are very thin in the bend of the leg at the hip so she feels free to walk and climb (she walked at 10 months). So if you are looking for an out-of-this-world nappy experience look no further- very good quality and well thought-through product!
