I'm expecting twins in Oct and have seriously been contemplating using modern cloth nappies. I've always used disposables with the others but I thought maybe this time round I'd save some money (lots of money lol). I'm curious though, about how time consuming it is with washing and drying etc etc. Is it really worth it or am I biting off more than I can chew? Also what brands would you recommend for a cloth nappy noob mother? Many thanks

Cloth nappies with twins

I'm also new to cloth and I'm finding it really easy only one baby though!! Was a bit fiddley at first with tiny newborn bums but much easier now at 11 weeks old.
We have heaps of stairs at our house and heading to the laundry to do a load of washing is much easier than running out to the bin or having dirty nappies pile up.
With twins you'll probably have a daily load and drying over night - ducted heating is great I've found.
I use mainly peapods and a few cushie tushies (cause they're cute!) and find peapods a bit easier to manage. Even though they're less expensive
Id love to hear about other brands too...??

I'm using baby wise.
I have about 10 covers and 2 inserts for each with 2 extra for night boosters.
We go threw 4 it so a day and I wash them with a normal load of washing every day.
No fabric softener in this house so I don't need to worry what I put them in with.
It means there is always some drying but I always have nappies.
I also use chucks wipes cut for liners. Saves having to wash pop nappies but might not work so good for a new born. You could use them doubled up though.
Good luck. They defintly save money and the micro fibber is just as good as bamboo but dries quicker.

You can use a nappy library for newborn sizes rather than buying (hire a stash of newborn sizes) then buy the OSFM stash that works for you - they usually give a few different brands with the library ??
I used disposables in the first few weeks and once I got used to night time feeds and could function on less sleep changed to MCN's

I used ordinary terry flat nappies with all my children, twins included. I found them so easy to wash and dry on the clothesline. took only a few mins to fold. That is what would use today if I was going to do it all again. Marie
