    I have also recently jumped the mcn wagon. We use my little ripple. It's good for us as we only use cloth during the day. The absorbency increases after a few washes. We have 20 shells and 30 inserts as the inserts take longer to dry and means we can rotate them better.

    Best to get them all in one colour so that it's easier to wash. I have them all in white.

    Snaps or velcro? Thinking long term but I guess I can always replace velcro but snaps will be more durable anyway?
    Snaps are best velcro they can undo and you have to deal with cleaning it out

    Do I want bamboo inserts for a pocket nappy or is microfleece ok to start with?
    You can start with Microfleece but bamboo is great and much thinner and more absorbent, another option is prefolds they can be found cheap and also can be used as diapers themselves with really cute covers or under knitted wool pants and shorts very cute look.

    Can anyone recommend a good ebay brand? DS is tall and skinny, not a particularly heavy wetter. A disposable would last 4 hours at least but I usually change around then anyway.


    If you are looking for a cheap start you can get some prefolds (dont do gerber brand) and some fleece shorts/pants ( any will work I use to get her play ones at target) then if you want to splurge (it can be addicting do careful lol) you can change to wool covers. Here are some pics of my now 5 year old in her wool it is so addicting for many so be careful but so fun.....

    How often do you find microfibre ones need to be changed?

    Every 2-3 hrs probably, depends on your son.

    Izzys mummy I can honestly say I have never separated my PUL pockets into whites and colours and never had a problem even when hot washing. Actually it never occurred to me, lol! I'm hopeless with laundry!

    With my little ripples they advise you to wash colours separately in case they run. That's why I only bought white ones.

    I prefer bamboo inserts, as I find they are a lot more absorbent.

    I prefer velcro a million times more than snaps. In fact, I despise snaps! My son pulls snaps off just as easily as velcro, the only difference to me is that velcro are easier to put on a fidgety baby. Velcro does look rattier over the long term compared to snaps, but for two years of easier nappy changes, I don't care!

    I had a friend that put her diapers on backwards to prevent your baby from taking velcro off lol

    Well that's quite creative haha. I must be the only person with a baby who undoes snaps?! He leaves Velcro alone but loves unclicking the snaps.
