    Default Modern cloth nappy advice

    Hi all

    i was looking at purchasing and using modern cloth nappies for my 3 month old. Does anyone have any recommendations of good brands or brands not to buy?

    Any advice would be great.
    Thanks

    I use itti bitti tutto's and find them great. Green kids and bum genius are meant to be good.

    I'd suggest buying a couple of different types and trying them out to see how you like them, every one likes different features. I was quite daunted by the world of MCN's, there are so many different types. I found the itti bitties are really easy to use, wash and dry and are really good quality.

    Subbing!

    I use baby behinds and find they take ages to dry so I use the dryer a lot (we live in Adel) summer would be different but kind of defeats purpose of going cloth

    I'm thinking of getting 12 itti's and few mixtures of others I have bub number two on way I want to be full time with both.

    Sorry to hijack but when do you toilet train lol

    It is also a matter of how well the shape of the nappies suit the shape of your child. I bought a few different ones to try and found the pea pod brand works really well for DD but the baby bee hinds were too thin. There is a facebook group that sells second hand ones for much cheaper for you to try.

    definitely suggest trying a few. When our daughter was young we had some favourites which we wouldn't consier now. Everyone, and every baby, is different.

    At 12 months, our favourites (by far) are ANYTHING with baby beehinds covers, and Eenee pouch pants.

    Apologies for any errors, I've had a couple of glasses of wine tonight

    I'm also a newbie in the MCN world so I'm keen to get some advice from the experts. So far I've tried Baby Beehinds Multifit Pocket (found it super bulky on my 3 month old DD and she gets really annoyed because her bum is heavy and she can't wriggle as much), Magic Alls AIO (less bulky but takes the longest to dry, and we live in sunny QLD!) and Petite All in Two (probably our favourite because it's slimmer and dries quickly and I love the fact that you can just change the inserts and reuse the shell if baby has just wet the nappy).

    That said, I've purchased a couple of Itti Bitti SIOs, they've just arrived today and they look so much slimmer and I can't wait to get them into the wash tomorrow. I'm on the lookout for the Tuttos as well, since they are more economical and can be used up to 20kg I heard.

    Are any dryable in the clothes dryer? The ones I bought (& have barely used!) can't go in the dryer makes winter really hard!

    Monkey'sMummy I've been told by the person who sells MCNs that they can be put into the clothes dryer on a low heat, except those PUL covers (might get damaged).

    DD is now in her first Itti Bitti D'Lish SIO. It looks really good on her! Fits snugly and not bulky at all! Hopefully there won't be any leaks whatsoever and I'll be on my way for more of these nappies!!

    I use cushie tushies, and they are a great fit. I prefer the tadpole to the chameleon as they are a trimmer fit I have tried pea pods but definitely prefer CT's.
