    Default Lots of MCN questions

    Ok so last baby, wanting to try MCN but feeling completely overwhelmed with so many brands and styles. Even all the pinned threads here have me feeling overwhelmed.

    What is better? pocket, A1 A2 or AIO? Thinking i might stay clear of AIO bc of time to dry

    Best liner? fleece or bamboo?

    Recommend me a brand.... for a skinny baby (I'm assuming as my other 2 were long and skinny) that are cheap. I'm not forking out $25 a nappy. Reviews on CC or Alva Baby?

    I've even looked on the used MCN FB pages and there are so many brands my head is spinning and they all seem really expensive for used nappies??

    Thanks for reading my all over the place post

    Would you consider second hand mcns? It's cheaper when you are trying them out working out what you like. I have bambooty easy drys however they are AIO. I find them great for my small Bub.

    I would def consider used but I've seen a few people burnt after buying and getting slack elastics and delamination. I also find that only buying say 2 izzy bear plus postage makes it really expensive.

    Someone told me bambooties were good for skinny ones. Have you found them small in the legs (which is what I want)? Are those bambooties OSFM? I should have said that, I want OSFM

    I would go second hand to be honest. It's easy to find napies that have not even been used, just washed a lot. So you don't even have to do the pre washing and absorbency is already up for use.
    Those nappies sell for $9-$10 each.

    If you pay with PayPal you are protected against not trustworthy buyers.

    I had a long and skinny baby and found that the sized Itti Bittis fit him well. I have heard that GroVia are good for skinny bubs too.

    Have you looked into napies library?

    Itty bitty are still good for small bubs however the old owner went under and lots of people haven't gotten orders etc. I'd hold off on itti til the new owners have fixed up the business.

    I have a few CC which are osfm and find they didn't fit at the start. My Bub is 15 weeks and 5.34kgs and they still don't fit.
