    Default Would u buy 2ndhand modern cloth nappies??

    Wanting to try some different brands to see what works for us but they are quite expensive new. Don't want to spend so much incase they don't fit well etc...

    What are your thoughts with secondhand?

    Yes if they were in reasonable condition!! They get washed, so it's not like you're buying a nappy complete with a poo

    Lol RR!

    I would not. All dd's terry towelling nappies were used, but I bought a few different ones second hand, some only a few months old, some up to 2 years old and after 6 months of use, combines with disposables, my nephew's nappies were unusable. No they were not soaked or put through the drier.

    They are not the type of thing that can be used for more than 1 child IMO.

    Absolutely

    I have brought plenty of second hand MCN's. I anticipate them being in action through all my children. They are easy to keep in good condition and if you are looking after them properly I see nothing wrong/icky about it.

    It is definitely a good way to find out which brand suits as they really are all different.

    I don't really liken it to wearing underwear. I would buy brand new liners and/or inserts even if I bought second hand shells.

    I don't anymore as I sew my own now, but in the beginning I bought lots of second hand ones to try the fit on my son, I always did a strip wash in hot water and added cannestan anti-bacterial rinse to kill any germs.
