    Default Old fashioned cloth nappies

    Where do you buy them from in Queensland?
    I used them for my first ( who is now 21yrs), in New Zealand.
    We are planning on doing IVF, so this is just research if we are successful
    What store can you buy them from here?
    Are they any good?
    Where can you buy the disposable liners?
    What over naps are best to prevent clothes from getting soaked?
    Thanks in advance

    You can buy them from Kmart and big w and the liners are available from.supermarkets.

    Google 'modern cloth nappies' though - they're fantastic!

    You mean terry flats? They sell them in big w. I wouldn't use them because they are superseded- modern cloth is much more ******lined and effective. And prettier JMO.

    I got the flushable bamboo liners off eBay, kindynews based in Brisbane. Haven't had bubs yet so can't comment on the quality.

    I used flannel flats with my boys. You can still get liners - I got mine at the supermarket and I just used the plastic pants over the top - got them at Kmart.

    The modern cloth nappies don't really appeal to me.
    They seem so exspensive and bulky to wash and dry.
    I just remember how easy the old flat nappies were to wash and dry

    I used terry flats and the flannel ones as well. Kmart and big w have them but they are smaller than the ones from 10-15yrs ago.

    I suggest you make your own from bamboo fabric. That way you can get the large size

    So e are expensive but you don't have to get expensive ones. You can get them for about $4 each- my little ripple is the seller on eBay. They are a basic one size adjustable nappy that see you through from birth to toilet training. I don't find them bulky to wash and dry- they are much smaller than a terry flat. By all means use flats if you like of course but it might be an idea to at least look into modern cloth- I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!

    I don't like the new ones either. I used flats with my now 5 year old. But he got bad rashes from everything
    Using them for my now 4 month old but just ripped my last pair of plastic pants. I can't get more here but kmart and I think target have them.

    Buy the plastic pants online as its way cheaper. The UK mothercare has great ones.
