    Default Which mcn brand for us?

    So, I've finally decided to get cloth nappies, yay!

    But, which ones? Dd is 10 months and has THE FATTEST thighs I have ever seen. Also, we're planning on having another baby, so ideally I'd like adjustable nappies, but I worry that if they're big enough to fit my beautiful chubba bubba, they will never be small enough to fit a newby, or even a normal sized bubba.

    I stalk eBay listings all the time, comparing listings. So there's cheapies from china, like $3 ish per nappy, right through to $40 odd a nappy. Which ones?

    Also there's a German nappy that ties on, then you put a merino wool cover over the top, anyone tried this? It's called Disana.

    I also tried using the terry towel flats I have, but I can't find a fold that gets around her legs without being too loose. What to do?

    Any advice welcome!

    I suggest OSFM (One size fits most) and I hear those China cheapies will not last you.
    Pea Pods have apparently redesigned their Nappies and are a lot better now and they're about $19 a nappy.
    Rumparooz, Bumgenius and Baby beehinds are apparently pretty good. There are a million brands out there so perhaps try a couple of a few different brands and see which work for you. Some places will give you a trial as well to see if they'll fit your bub.

    Nappy library! That way you can try a few different brands before you outlay

    I've got some swaggers and itti bitti tutto and they're both fantastic. Great for newborns all the way through to toddlers! A good friend has bumgenius and loves them.
    Good luck!

    My little ripple are the cheap ones from china, I have had no probs with them. I also use funkibums and a local brand called baby bums. I refuse to pay $25+ for a nappy personally.

    I disagree, my china cheapies have lasted 2 kids now (1yr first, 1yr still going with second). I stopped after 1yr with my first due to working and wanting to cut down washing

    I got told by a lot of people china cheapies were no good but eventually ended up buying some and extra inserts for each and they are great Nappies. Lasting the distance here.

    I was there spending up on a few of each, too. The Issy Bears are my favourites of those I saw, but I also picked up a Bambooty and a Cushie Tushie. Love the Grovia peacock print.
