    Default Re: Buying Second Hand Cloth Nappies Is Like Buying Second Hand Underwear

    Nappies and undies (bras included) all fall into the *one owner only* category for me.

    Default Buying Second Hand Cloth Nappies Is Like Buying Second Hand Underwear

    I am pretty bad with second hand anything. I wouldnt buy second hand MCN's or undies. I don't even let my girls hand down undies so second hand undies are definitely out of the question.. I have no problem with people that do it but I just couldn't!

    Default Buying Second Hand Cloth Nappies Is Like Buying Second Hand Underwear

    I am okay with handing down nappies and undies from my kids to each other, but could never buy second hand MCNs or underwear from a stranger because I can't trust that they have been cleaned and well looked after and I find it a bit gross to be honest. Same with I can deal with spew and poo from my family, but not from anyone else's (close friends baby's included!)

    Well my bum never knew a new cloth nappy. I only ever hand hand-me-down terry flats and I survived just fine.

    I have used second hand mcns, I wash then before use and hang them in the sun to sanitise. I never received one that had any stains or stunk so it was a non-issue.

    I would use second hand undies if needed but a new mcn can cost $40+ where you can get a new pair of undies for a few dollars. I know there are a lot more cheaper mcns on the market now but I'm going back a few years when I bought them.

    I also think its acost thing. New adult knickers aren't terribly expensive where as cloth nappies and all the assorted bits that come with them are?

    I would use second hand cloth nappies but adult undies, ummm no.

    Default Buying Second Hand Cloth Nappies Is Like Buying Second Hand Underwear

    I buy second hand MCNs but not second hand underwear because adults are gross and babies are adorable.
    But really underwear wears out and the second hand MCNs I have bought are like brand new.

    Yep,.. My feelings too.

    Default Buying Second Hand Cloth Nappies Is Like Buying Second Hand Underwear

    Yes I am using both new and (lightly) used cloth nappies. I'm not sure that there's a huge difference tbh. Both could be well sanitized.

    A lot of used nappies are sold after only a few wears an the parents decide they don't like a particular for on their baby. So a lot of expensive clothies would be going to waste if not re sold.

    No I do not buy used undies. Having said that if my undies began to cost me $25-$40 a pair, yes I would buy them second hand if in good condition.

    I used hand me down undies as a child... both my girls have used the same terry flat nappies that my DH used as a baby, then his brother and half of his cousins. And DD1 and DD2 both will use the same MCN as will bubba #3 and then I will hand the whole lot to my brother to use with his future kids.

    I have no objection to buying second hand undies for my kids as I find in Australia the smallest size cheapie undies you can buy is 2-3 in Target/Big W. very frustrating when you are TT your 7-14mth old. I've ordered some from the UK but its so expensive to buy new. Luckily a work colleague of mine is from the UK and gave e a whole bag of size 0-1 undies when DD1 was 1yr.

    I have no objections buying second hand undies for me but new are cheap so might as well get them. i have purchased second hand maternity bras in the past.

    basically cost is a factor and finding the dratted things.
