    Default Cloth nappies - eBay cheapies ???

    Can anyone tell me what's the deal with the e-bay cloth nappies.

    You can get 20 for $93 one size fits all with inserts. Are they really poor quality or just made by slave labour ?

    Anyone used the e-bay ones???

    Bit reluctant to spend $700 for the same amount of nappies. But obviously like to support local companies. And want quality.

    I have a few and don't mind them. Obviously they don't last as long on as the more expensive brands but they do the job. If you don't mind changing every them often they are ok.

    Many people begin with CCs (China Cheapies) then move on or add to their stash other brands. CCs aren't the best quality or fit but they do the job. I would recommend getting a mixture of snaps & Velcro to see which suits your bub's shape better. Also some bamboo boosters as the microfibre ones they come with don't hold as much wee as bamboo.

    You could also buy second hand if you want to save money. I bought a mixture of different brands before my son was born so I could see which types suited him best. There's a FB page called buy & sell your MCNs or websites like usednappies.com or Nappy Addicts

    I've bought a single SUNNY baby nappy from ebay at it was so crap. It's been used and washed maybe 5 times and it's started to de-PUL. (the plastic is peeling off the fabric)

    Ive heard SUN baby though are good. they are 12 for $60-70?

    honestly though they cannot be paying a fair wage on that though.
