    Default What MCN's would suit my needs?

    I am planning on using disposables for the first 6 weeks (approx.)and using disposables at night until TT, so am really just after a daytime OSFMthat is AIO. I personally don’t like the idea of boosters and covers, as I justwant a nappy that I can chuck as it is in the washing machine (intending to useflushable liners). What MCN’s would suit what I’m after? Im intending to buy a few brands to see what works. I like the idea ofbamboo, and have no idea what minkee is. Bump is a boy if that helps.
    Thanks

    I'm the same, disposables at night, not interested in anything that's not waterproof or requires extra covers, and I use flushable liners (Pea Pod off ebay).

    I have itti bittis and FuzziBuns and like them both. My itti bittis are trimmer and have snap in soakers, the Fuzzibunz are bulkier and are a pocket nappy, but are much cheaper.

    Minkee is that lovely, fluffy kind of nappy, kind've furry.

    Itti bitti do great AIO which I found the easiest to use, but they are sized. They do make a OSFM but that had a snap in booster.
    Most nappies will have bamboo for the absorbent layers, some have bamboo inners.
    Minkee (or minky) is just the fluffy fabric on the outside. If you aren't keen on the fluff, look for ones that have PUL as the outer layer.
    If you can find a "nappy library" they hire out nappies in all different brands so you can try them out and find out which suits you the best.
    Hope that helps

    I'm doing the same
    Baby Beehinds and Bumgenius are two of my favourites. I found the OSFM itti bitti's didn't fit well for the first few months.
    I'd try a few different ones as everyone's babies are shaped slightly differently and everyone has different preferences as to what they like. You can get sample packs from most nappy brands (from their websites) or if you're ok to use second hand ones there are fb MCN buying/ selling pages or ebay. (I've bought several second hand and had no problems with the condition of them, but it's a personal preference).

    Contact Chrissie at Ecotushies. She runs a nappy library and knows the ins and outs of all the different brands.

    I don't think you can go wrong with Bumgenius. Only thing is they aren't as pretty as something like Itti Bittis.

    I also love Baby Beehinds multifits but DS grew out of them at about 15 months.

    I also recommend you get some china cheapies off eBay for if you get behind on washing or to keep in the nappy bag. I can recommend My Little Ripple.

    ETA: the above are pocket nappies not AIO. For an AIO I'd recommend Bambooty or Pikapu.

    thanks for the info
    have done some further research
    from what i could find there are very few true AIOs that are OSFM, as the large majority had boosters, or were AIO but sized
    i found bambooty, bumgenius, pikapu and tots bots appeared to do a OSFM that was AIO
    im still looking though, so any further ideas would be great

    sorry, another question, is an insert the same as a booster? and are they really a separate piece or stitched in?
