    Default cloth nappy help

    Im struggling with the mcn i bought for my newborn but really want to use cloth. i tried the old fashioned style square nappy and while they are a little bulky, seem to work the best. I need to buy some more, how many do i need and what brands do you recommend?

    I have bought a few different brands for preparation to have Bub. The best so far have been the bumgenius ones. They have stretchy tabs so they fit a bit better. But extra liners and also the bamboo flushable liners are handy as u can get rid of the solid wastes

    What type of MCNs have you tried?
    I tried a few brands, but in the end I used plain old terry flats. I have about 18 now plus 12 birds-eye flats (not as bulky as terry) for the next bub. I don't like using covers on top of the flats because I like knowing exactly when bub pees/poops so we can do a quick change.

    I'm a bum genius fan to the core!!! The hook and loop are Velcro which is are SOOO much easier then the snaps. I was giving heaps of hand made ones but they leaked terribly! If I could remember the website I bought mine from I would tell u because they were cheap as they came from America. I have something like 24 nappies which does me pretty well! Will be using them for my son as well when he is born

    I have 1 bum genius, its good but still a bit big. I am finding the terry flats don't leak. but want to buy a really good brand. Im looking at the organic ones from natureschild, they seem to be better quality and will last. im looking forward to trying my mcn when rose gets a little older. I also have babybeehinds and pop ins. they all seem really good but just too big for my tiny gal right now. anyone else using the natures child organic ones? the dept store ones seem a bit too thin.

    Do you mean the terry flats or the BBH that they sell?
    I've also found some terry flats wear thin after a while, and the best brand that I have tried are the rectangular terrys from Target - they come in a six pack. They don't fray as much as the others I have.
