Yes I use some second hand MCN's.
I've only bought ones in very good condition, and would be pretty grossed out if they had old poo stains on them or anything. I know another baby's pooed in them but as I can't see any evidence of it it doesn't worry me.
I don't find baby poo/ wee anywhere near as disgusting as adult body fluids either like a few have said.
Also cost like a few have mentioned- undies are pretty cheap compared to MCN's.
Undies also get all stretched and wear and tear faster (I think) then a MCN on a large rotation.
However..if I found undies as part of a lingerie set or something, very good condition and not worn enough to be stretched or anything, at a bargain price, I'd probably get them (but they better be in super- clean condition same as I like second hand MCNs to arrive in!)
2- it's easy to read babies when they want to poo so just pop them on a potty/toilet. It only takes a week for them to let you know they need to poo in advance. Wees are a tad harder but I just pop dd2 on the toilet hourly and say it's wee time and 8/10 times she wees. she wears a cloth nappy at home/out/car in case I miss her signs or we can't go immediately.
3- It's annoying washing cloth nappies
4- it's hard to argue with a 2yo the need to do wees/poo on a toilet so I'm hoping to get dd2 sorted by 13-18mths before the 'tantrums'.
It's sooooo much easier at this age. We started TT dd1 at 14mths and finished day TT at 18mths and it was much harder.
Anecdotally - my mother swears I was TT by 8mths (no nappy) and my brother by 10mths. My aunt TT her twins by 15mths day/night. My MIL (not Indian) had my DH TT at 18mths and my BIL at 15mths cos she knew more the second time around. I think early TT is referred to as EC.
I don't push my girls to TT - just offer the toilet frequently and praise when it works out. Plus I was fed up with the 'still in nappies' comments.
And I'm not saying that to cause an argument just something that came to mind
For people who wouldn't pass from one sibling to another if you had twins would you have a separate stash if nappies or undies for each child??? We have 3 under 2.5 and they all share nappies- maybe I'm disorganised or lazy but I can't be bothered taking 3 sets of nappies everywhere or even keeping 3 separate sets in the house- they all go in a basket and they all wear the same ones.
I know for a fact that the larger hotel (and even some motel) chains wash their linen and dressing gowns industrially with stuff that will strip your skin right off.
