    Default "Trimmest" nappy in your experience

    I have just begun my MCN adventure

    What brands have you found to be the trimmest on babys bum under clothes for daytime use - and are there any pros and cons of the brand? Eg Adding an extra booster has made a difference etc ...



    Look forward to replies to help me out!!!

    Itti Bitti D'Lish.
    No questions.
    Absorbent, trim, pattable...
    Only problem some poeple seem to have is the wing droop and they are a better fit on skinny bubbas, but I love them!

    Itti bittis are one of the trimmest nappies there is. Another trim one that is a pocket is Swaddlebees.

    Bumg's are ok - not too bulky, but only come with microfibre so not as absorbent, as say, green kids, which can come with a bamboo booster.

    Did you want pocket nappies particularly or any?

    Oh no, what have I started

    I will stick to the IB for jeans etc and see how they go - I havent heard of one of those others and thought I had done some pretty good research

    Thanks for your help again

    Ohhh Wildchild Daydreamers are FANTASTIC too, also very trim and very absorbent.

    Umm I dont think the Gks are particulartly trim. They could be if used with a Microfibre insert but in terms of going under clothes etc i would still recommend the IB!

    I think that with an older child, most OSFM nappies will be trim - on my toddler BumG, Hautes and even GreenKids seem trim.
    Itti Bittis are known for being trim (I find the PUL ones even trimmer than the minky ones).

    I wouldn't know about the newish ones, I haven't been able to justify buying nappies in a long time!

    Trim nappies for underneath clothes it's always going to be a trade off between absorbancy and trimness. IB are great although didn't suit my DD (too narrow in the crotch and rise) Bum G are nice and trim but very $$$$ at the moment. Haute traditionals are awesome, great booster system and snaps or velcro options. Swaddlebees AIO are an awesome trim nappy and have a pocket for extra boosters and they have the OSFA pocket as well which is a nice trim nappy with an organic cotton/hemp insert.

    Have fun shopping
