    Default Recommend me multifit MCN suitable for all ages

    Hi, I'm pregnant with baby #3 and am considering MCNs instead of disposables this time round.

    I'm totally new to this as I used disposables for my first two girls but the cost factor and enviro waste of disposables is making me think that a decent multifit MCN might be a good idea.

    Can you please recommend me a good multifit nappy suitable from newborn to toddlers?

    The reason I'm thinking multifit is that I will only need to purchase them once, particularly as this will be my last baby so there will be no one to hand them down to.

    Hope to hear your recommendations.

    We have baby beehinds, itti bittis and hippybottomus multifits and have used them since DS was about 10 weeks old (we weren't organised enough before that!). DS is 11 months and I'm finding the itti bittis a little short at times but they also fit under clothes better. There is definitely lots of room to grow into the baby beehinds and hippybottomus ones. The hippybottomus ones were really cheap and dry quickly so were great to bulk out our stash.

    I love cheapie OSFM style nappies like my little ripple and sunbaby. I also have some funkibums, itti bitti and another brand from the USA (can't recall) and the cheapies have worked just as well. I do replace the microfibre inserts with bamboo or hemp for better absorption though.

    I'm due with my first in just over ten weeks we're planning on using MCNs, I looked at quite a few different brands but thought the most straightforward one size adjustable MCN for us was the PeaPods.

    Funkibums were cheap and fit well with DD. I think we used them from about 4 months to 18 months. She was a small and skinny baby.

    If you want to try a few to help you decide there's a 2nd-hand buy/sell MCN group on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AussieBSMCN/

    Also, the "one size fits most" (OSFM) nappies don't usually fit from newborn so some fitteds for the first few weeks/months is a good idea.

    Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I think I might purchase a few single MCNs in three or four of the different brands suggested and give them a try after bub is born. Then I can find the one I like best and invest in a full supply from there.

    Wanted to come back and say that my SIL was highly recommending close pop-ins the other day. I don't know much about them except that they are a OSFM (she said she was using them from 8 weeks) and I have seen them advertised on the 2nd hand MCN facebook group for $8-$10 each. Google "close pop ins" to find out more.
