Ive use MCN on both my kids (same nappies) and they are the WAHM nappies. Very expensive (compard to CC) but they lasted me TWO kids.
Ive just purchased some CC (10 for $40) as the toddler size covers of my old nappies dont quite fit him right.
What id like to know is why do we expect a cloth anppy to last 4+ hours. Thats crazy!! You need to change a cloth nappy evey 2 hours i reckon! If your leaving the same nappy on for 4+ hours, of course is gona leak!!
Hopefully these nappies will last the 6 or so months left of DS being in nappies, id be happy with that!
I have cc and "brand names" too. I go for the pretty nappies first and the cc go in the nappy bag for emergencies and washing day. I haven't been using them long enough to see which will stand the test of time but the more expensive ingres have tighter elastic.

I agree.. who leaves their child in a nappy for 4+ hours during the day!? Even when using disposables on holidays I wouldn't leave my son sitting in 4 hours worth of pee!
I got my nappies yesterday (less then 24 hours after I ordered them ). I don't have any babies here to test them out yet but they fit my doll really well . My brand are My little Ripple ($110 for 30), they do look well made and the stitching is good. They are an Australian based company, and they definitely ship things out really fast .
The colours are really nice, and all the reviews (bubhub, product review, and I also found a you tube video reviewing them too) and comments on their face book page are good. The you tube video is worth a watch actually because it gives a good hint about getting the legs to fit a bit better to prevent leaks
If you want some WAHM nappies without the price tag, there's a group on FB called Buy & Sell Your MCN's (Modern Cloth Nappies). You can buy 2nd hand nappies for quite cheap. That's what I did with my son's stash before he was born so we had a good range of different types.
I have one CC and the fit is terrible here
