Just saw these on the Mother Instinct site. They look really nice, but was wondering if anyone had given them a go?

I have just purchased the micro doodlez for my 3 yr at night, the large is fantastic, the tabs overlap. These are a gorgeous nap, am just waiting on the doublez to arrive to Karyn for added absorbancy.

I've just got two micro doodlez and absolutely love them (and ordered another 2). They are able to contain my son's volcanic activity (no other way to describe it!) without any leaks. Believe me, if pooing was an Olympic event, my son would get gold every time.

They are trim & not bulky between the legs (I'm sure there is a correct term for this). They survive 7 hour sleeps without leaking (without using a doubler, but as he gets older & sleeps get longer, we may need extra absorbency). I find them fast drying on the line (as fast as some of the prefolds & much faster than other AIO that I have tried).

It is the kind of nappy that I want to hurry through the wash so I can put it on my little man again & again.

I got my micro doodlez today!
First impressions-Very well made nappy,LOVE the colour and i love how the sewn in soaker is wider at the back where the nappy is wider instead of just one straight line does that make sense?LOL
I loveee the colour(aqua) and it feels like it would be quite absorbent.
Aylas wearing it now(sz large) and it does fit around her waist and thighs on the tightest (crossed over tabs) but it sags a little at the bum!I think i would get a medium long next time!The large could be good for overnight though!!
SO far so good,will update on performance when we've used it more :)

SOmeone just did a poo :roll: lol so that was short lived....i did notice that it had slipped around a little and the wings were a bit bunched up in the time she did have it sadly i think it is just that bit too big!Now the q is do i sell it and buy a medium long(cos i really like the nappy) or keep it and stil buy a medium long?lhaha

Yeah that happened with Isaac too, they were just too big .. the large seems quite generous.

I'd say sell and get the Medium/Long - she probably will never get to fit - unless you use as a cover at night.

You won't have this problem with the smaller size

yea i might stick it on trademe.....
Now how do i choose which colour?I am the worst person at desicions and well if it was me i would buy them all!!
Karyn do you like the original or microdoodle the best??I love the fuscia pink colour but then i do like microfleece....

The original is trimmer, but white inside so not so co-ordinated BUT who sees the inside anyway, well you can't see much of it. The Fuscia and Lavender are both lovely in this style.

The Micro is nice too :D I do like both styles, the pink is devine for a girl.

I love the look of this nappy and will have to purchase one when I get back from my holiday... a whole month to wait!!! Do you think a large would be too big for a chubby 12 kilo, 11 month old boy? I'm tempted to go for that size as he's fitting other larges pretty well, but then is still fitting other mediums well too, ie his drybees is a perfect fit and that's medium... how confusing! :?

My 15 month old chubby fits the medium with long rise really well.
The larges go from 11.5kg and I found too big. If he is still fitting medium in a Drybees then I would go for the medium with long rise as it goes to 15.5kg I think from memory.

My beautiful micro doodlez arrived today. I love the colour (aqua) and the PUL is so soft. Joel wore it (brand new, no washing etc) for 3hrs + and had no probs. I'm looking forward to using it some more, but I can see it will become a favourite. Are they a Canadian brand?
