    I haven't made any but know a few ladies who have, they use bamboo fleece or bamboo terry topped with bamboo velour. I have made lots of MCN and use the bamboo fleece it's fantastic and super absorbent I top it with microfleece for nappies but bamboo velour is a lot more lush I loved the tie dye cuts of it they look fantastic

    Ok thanks.... I have got some PLU for the bottom so there are minimal leaks but can't really just use that :P

    Haha yeah PUL is great for helping stop leaks but you definitely need something absorbent in the middle I use 3 layers of bamboo for nappies and then fold it into thirds so its 9 layers. 3 layers of bamboo would be plenty for mumma cloth though

    thanks for that! I am so excited!! Lol I haven't told my mum or anyone just want to see how they go and then when I don't have to buy pads and she asks why not I will be able to tell her proudly lol, I am looking. Forward to a not solely bin and saving some money for the next 25osh years lol

    Yep I love the saving money factor, nothing worse than basically throwing it in the bin!
