    Hi silly question but what does CC stand for? Oh and WAHM? I'm still trying to get a handle on using MCNs. I still use disposables but want to start using MCNs full time. Cheers

    Ive use MCN on both my kids (same nappies) and they are the WAHM nappies. Very expensive (compard to CC) but they lasted me TWO kids.
    Ive just purchased some CC (10 for $40) as the toddler size covers of my old nappies dont quite fit him right.

    What id like to know is why do we expect a cloth anppy to last 4+ hours. Thats crazy!! You need to change a cloth nappy evey 2 hours i reckon! If your leaving the same nappy on for 4+ hours, of course is gona leak!!

    Hopefully these nappies will last the 6 or so months left of DS being in nappies, id be happy with that!

    Agreed! I change mine every 3 hours or so. DS tends to do random huge pees though.

    I have cc and "brand names" too. I go for the pretty nappies first and the cc go in the nappy bag for emergencies and washing day. I haven't been using them long enough to see which will stand the test of time but the more expensive ingres have tighter elastic.

    I agree.. who leaves their child in a nappy for 4+ hours during the day!? Even when using disposables on holidays I wouldn't leave my son sitting in 4 hours worth of pee!

    I got my nappies yesterday (less then 24 hours after I ordered them ). I don't have any babies here to test them out yet but they fit my doll really well . My brand are My little Ripple ($110 for 30), they do look well made and the stitching is good. They are an Australian based company, and they definitely ship things out really fast .

    The colours are really nice, and all the reviews (bubhub, product review, and I also found a you tube video reviewing them too) and comments on their face book page are good. The you tube video is worth a watch actually because it gives a good hint about getting the legs to fit a bit better to prevent leaks

    Was it a cotton outer Issy? Anything cotton outer will leak here within an hour.

    If you want some WAHM nappies without the price tag, there's a group on FB called Buy & Sell Your MCN's (Modern Cloth Nappies). You can buy 2nd hand nappies for quite cheap. That's what I did with my son's stash before he was born so we had a good range of different types.

    I have one CC and the fit is terrible here

    It's a minky so probably cotton outter with a day and night insert (wanted it for nights) .

    He's 2 and will wet right through it in 2 hours.

    Unless he poops or is obviously wet I have always done a 4 hour change routine in both cloth and disposal nappies.

    Wow that's a serious heavy wetter! My son is 15mths and can get up to 14hrs overnight in a minky Issy Bear. I change 2-3hrly otherwise he wets through during the day, regardless of the brand I use.
