    I am buying a new set of mcns for my second child. I wouldn't be having my child wear hand me down underwear so hand me down nappies are out too. I don't even do hand me down clothes.

    But a few people are saying they use second hand nappies but wouldnt use second hand underwear..then thats it. Im curious as to why that is.

    Default Buying Second Hand Cloth Nappies Is Like Buying Second Hand Underwear

    I have no problem with second hand clothes for my kids, but I wouldn't buy or use second hand underwear or nappies. My friend and I swap a lot of clothes and she has also given underwear, but I didn't use them. I've never given her underwear. The only reason I have not used mcn is because of the washing. It is my most hated household chore, and I can't keep up as it is!

    If I could afford to buy MCNs (which is one of the the main reasons I don't use them) then yes, I would buy new MCNs for each child. Just like I wouldn't share my sister's underwear, I wouldn't put my children in shared MCNs.

    Question 1. Do you agree with the above statement? Why/Why not?

    Question 2. If you buy second hand cloth nappies for your little ones, would you buy second hand (good condition) underwear for yourself or your little ones? Why/Why not? If not, whats the difference (in your mind).


    ETA: Used some bold and underlining to try get my questions across clearer.
    No .. I think they are totally different items, but most importantly, any second hand nappies I bought, I soaked. I only soaked them when I got them, because its not good for them...

    I dont soak my underwear (dont need to ) and I've never needed to buy second hand underwear, its not so expensive, especially from Bigw/ target etc.

    MCN are made to last a decent amount of time - they are made to be used by 2+ kids

    Liners.
    Plus the fabrics are different, MCNs are designed to be dirtied and reused after being washed. Undies obviously are re-used but they arent designed to have wee in them so they arent designed for wee to come out easily. The fabrics such as bamboo are sanitised by the sun if hung out to dry.

    Yeah I dunno. Once an mcn has been through a good wash, sun bleached and the like it's hard to imagine it as another baby's poo catcher. They come up as new.
    I buy second hand mcns - very recently have started to do so. I have a budget, and cloth is important to me. Disposable nappies just aren't going to happen here.
    Second hand underwear? It's not as expensive to buy new, I guess that's one reason. Adults are gross, that's another reason.
    Do you use cloth London? I would think that sposie users are probably more grossed out by poo and pee, tbh.

    Nope, I didnt with DS and dont plan to with this baby...being grossed out by poo or pee isnt my reason why I wouldnt use them though......BUT that has nothing to do with it really. This questions is being asked out of genuine curiosity like most of my posts. Im a curios one
