    Default MCN - AIO vs AI2 vs Pockets

    I am now exploring MCNs after realsing maybe bamboo terry flats/prefolds aren't the best option.

    I want something fast drying though which was why I like the look of terry flats. I think I will still get some of these and prefolds.

    So I have been thinking maybe pockets are the best option now?

    What do you use and why?

    Also, bub will be in childcare from about 6mth so are AIO best for that?

    Pockets are the quickest drying MCN, because it comes apart and the shell dries so quickly. I would suggest pockets (or even AIO2's) in your kind of climate. I have a huge stash of AIO's and they take a whole day to dry even in QLD weather.

    Pockets at daycare shouldn't be an issue if you pre-stuff them

    I have ai2 and pockets. I much prefer the pockets. You can adjust the absorbency as needed and if you pre stuff they are just like an aio. I have extra inserts for pockets too for slow drying days.

    is there any benefits for AI2/snap-ins in regard to using less nappies? I read that for wee's you can just change the snap in? in reality is this the case or does the whole nappy normally need changing anyway?

    also, are there any that aren't that minky material - Im not a huge fan

    I have a couple of pocket nappies, but never really got the hang of stuffing them.

    I prefer ones where you snap in the pads. Although, we're in Brisbane, so drying time is not a big issue.

    ms mummy - how do you find the snap in ones? are they messy - does the poo get all smushed between the liner and nappy? or is it just a simple case of removing the snap-in. Do you often change the snap in and reuse the shell?

    I always used flushable liners which caught a lot of the poo (I'm too squeamish to scrape).

    It was ages ago I used them, but from memory, poo did stick to stuff, maybe more than the pockets as it was just a flat base. But I really never came around to stuffing pockets. Maybe if I had more I would have gotten used to it.

    I find it so hard to buy nappies before they born. I bought quite a few different ones and some were just failures due to my son having slim thighs.

    I never reused shells. I sort of felt they had been tainted by the wee or the poo, so just used a new one each time, but I guess you could.
