    You don't need liners until bub is on solids unless you are using nappy rash creams

    I've tried a bunch of different brands and I think bum genius are brilliant. Definitely get a couple of them to try. They fit my toddler and my newborn - most one-size fits most (OSFM) don't fit my toddler anymore.

    If you are interested in second hand nappies join the Facebook group "but and sell your MCNs" but I've found if you buy new nappies on special they aren't more expensive than second hand.

    Also My Little Ripple from eBay are cheap as and they are a great stash builder. They work brilliantly and only cost around $4 a nappy.

    Thanks for your advice girls my mum kept all of her old flats from when I was a bub, so I'm thinking that they will do just fine for those first few weeks.

    I will keep an eye out for some pretty fleece covers.

    Thanks again girls I will grab a couple of each brand mentioned here closer to the date and see how they all go xx

    I can also recommend bumgenius. I used their 4.0 version with DS and never had a leak up the back (but did on the occasional times I used disposables). They did occasionally leak at the sides though and are a pocket nappy so require stuffing.

    This time I'm going to try out rumparooz which are the only ones available with double leg gussets (so hopefully no leaks). They also come in cute prints and are super soft. They are also a pocket nappy though. I'm also going to try out the bumgenius freetime, a quick drying all in one (no stuffing).

    If you check out ebay/gumtree you can usually get them well priced.

    I have 3 different types. Itti bitti tutto and bambooty OSFM are my favourites. They are both very trim and dry reasonably quick for an MCN as the inserts pull or snap out. I don't think they'd be very good on a newborn though with their skinny mini legs. I started using them at 3 months.

    I've also got some baby beehinds which I do not like. They are pockets and they are very very bulky. I didn't realise how important it was to have a trim nappy until I used these. I use them of a night with 3 inserts with success though.

    I bought some micro fleece from spotlight and cut it up into strips. This is what I use for liners and the I just wash them in my nappy load. Too easy.

    I've only bought mine on sale or new from ebay where you can get them a lot cheaper. Ive heard tax time is also a good time to buy

    Has nobody tried pea pods? They seem to be the only brand stocked locally and haven't heard much about them.

    We use pea pods here and my 7 week old has just fitted in to them. They are a little bulky but the fit seems to look good. The bamboo liner takes a little longer then others I have to dry.
