    Id be all for supporting wahm's as well, except the prices are way out of my price range, especially when the ones i have tried, just dont work for my bubs.

    The nappies I buy are very well designed and don't leak on Ds

    I change him every 4 hours and would continue to do so even with expensive nappies.

    Ds has an issy bear and leaks right through it in max 2 hours.

    I don't have 40$+ for one nappy so no I dont support wahms with this..

    The material is a pull outter layer, fleece inner and microfiber insert.

    i have ebay ones they are great, i don't have $40+ to spend on one nappy.
    i got 10 nappies for under $40 including postage. i change my DS every3-4hours so usually no problems with leaking.
    they are pul with micro fibre inserts

    Most of my stash are Ebay cheapies and I love them! I paid $80 for 20 nappies and microfibre inserts, and then spent around $50 on 20 bamboo inserts. I just use two inserts instead of one and don't have many issues. There will be occasional leaks but very rarely. DS gets changed approx every 3 hours. At night, we use Green Kids with a bamboo insert, a microfibre insert and a bamboo booster which cost $40.

    I'm naughty and do everything you aren't supposed to with my MCNs (soaking in napisan (sp?) and using barrier creams) and they are still going strong after 16 months of use.

    Visit modern cloth nappies by Renee - she has heaps on sale for $8 that include microfibre inserts. I have been using these every day since DS was born. He is now 1 and they are still going strong

    I've heard some great things about

    www.alvababy.com

    In particular the double leg gusset ones with colour coded snaps! (http://www.alvababy.com/Supply-baby-...le-gussets_c58)

    Prices from $4.30 with free shipping! And apparently they arrive 7-10 days

    How old is your baby? I've never used Issy Bear but I have a friend who swears by them at night with no problems, and another friend who said hers leaked.

    Not all WAHM's are $40. And I don't even mean handmade (although some are very nice) bc you can get some really crappy WAHM'S as well. I just mean Australian designed. I'm not having a go, I just wouldn't buy CC's myself. They don't look as nice and they don't work as well in my opinion. No way could my son last four hours with a single microfiber insert, or even with a double for that matter. With regards to pricing, I just think you get what you pay for. Bonnibuns are $28 and are a great workhorse nappy, sometimes you can even get them for $20. I know lots of people who spent $150 on a stash of CC's that ended up not working and no one would buy them so they lost $150. At least with well known brands you can generally get your money back if the fit isn't right.

    I'm all for saving money. But I'd do prefolds and covers before wasting money on CC's.
