    Default Best MCN for long term use?

    Hi, I'm just getting started with MCNs and would like people's advice regarding the best nappies for ongoing long term use on 2 or 3 children. Which nappies hold up the best?
    Thanks

    I have some BBH that were second hand and have been used on 2 kids and are still in excellent condition.

    similarly my itti bittis look great

    I am preg with number three and all mine are pretty much in perfect condition. It depends how you well you look after them etc. Mine aren't even faded like some ppl's I know after using them for a couple of kids.

    Some of my faves include - baby beehinds bamboo & covers, krap katchers night and day ones, itti bitti d'lish, peapods, bubblebubs, berry plush

    I found the elastic to go slack on the ittis and baby behinds, I also had leaks every time with the itti bitti tutto, my bubblebubs cute tooshie candies were the best nappy I found

    I really like my BumGenius nappies, they have made all the elastic easily replaceable and they just always wash up so well. U can buy spare insert sets too. Snaps last longer than Velcro, though u can actually replace the Velcro too.

    Other than that, good quality flats or prefolds are a good option, as they last very well if looked after and to buy new covers for them (should they wear out) is cheaper than to buy whole new nappies. I especially like Bumboo bamboo flats, with Thirsties or Bumboo covers (Thirsties are size adjustable).

    Ditto, the elastic has either gone or is going on most of my Baby Beehind magic alls. I take exceptional care of my nappies and it hasn't happened to other brands which I bought at the same time and use just as much. The BBH bamboo fitteds are all fine though, and they are more cost-effective too - I highly recommend them.

    thanks for your replies, i think i'm on the right track. i guess i'm just trying to work out if cost = quality! some brands seem so expensive, but if they last for ages it should work out cheaper than paying less and replacing iykwim.

    I love my BBH and have never had a problem with them.

    My favourite nappies are from Sustainable hemp products
