Anyone used these? Been looking at getting these for Lo when s/he finally arrives and my council has them as one of the options for the starter packs on offer, just wondered if anyone can advise?

Hi, I just got a maxi pack of these (10 nappies plus some other bits n bobs). I had a bumgenius and bamboozle stretchy as a 'trial' which were really nice but took ages to dry, then I just went for the dream dri as my friend has them and I just thought it would be more convenient.
They're not that bulky but poppering them down to the smaller settings does make the tops of the legs a bit funny, I only started using them on my 11 pound, 3 month old, this week. I think for a newborn they might be a bit big. But then you're only going to not get that if you do sized nappies I guess. They dry really quickly, they are not natural materials but that didn't bother me.
My LO is only using about 6 a day now as she sleeps through and doesn't poo often and as they dry so quickly I think I may be able to get by with just the 10 nappies, though I do have my other 2 trial ones to use too. They washed out great at 40 degrees (had lots of poo on a few!). Had one or two leaks ( a really big one yesterday) but think it might be not having put them on perfectly. She managed to go all night (11 hours) yesterday with just the booster without any leaks. I also have some bamboo things to put in to add absorbency at nighttime but haven't tried these yet - they took ages to dry after I prewashed them though.

I use the bamboo Pop-in which is brilliant. I did order one dream-dri Pop-in for comparison and while it feels lovely and soft and it dries really quickly after washing I don't find it absorbant enough generally, especially at night, even with the bamboo booster. Depends if you have a mega-pee-er if you know what I mean!

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
