    1. After reading about MCN on a parenting forum and falling in love with the idea I immediately bought an ebay cheapie, cute but a blatant lie regarding it being an AIO. It has a layer of nylon as its waterproof layer!?! With about 3 layers of cotton for absorbency! It looks good on DD’s baby elephant atm! Next I bought a BBH bamboo fitted during the 1st nappy hunt and the addiction began!

    2. My first green nappies were Minky pocket nappies from a store set up to support a Chinese orphanage for special needs children in Beijing. The nappies were very reasonably priced at RMB49 (less than AUD10) and I think this orphanage does great work, so they were the perfect way to tempt me into trying cloth nappies. I’m glad I did – the nappies do their job well and I think I’m getting hooked. The store is http://www.assuntastore.com – a great source for some very priced cloth nappies (and nappy making supplies) for a good price!

    3. After using terry squares sporadically for 20 months, I finally jumped on to the mcn bandwagon and bought a giraffe print Cushie Tooshie Couture! This all in one fits my toddler really well and is so easy to use. We got it from Nest Nappies in Brisbane (very helpful!) and I love it! It is SO much nicer than using sposies and MUCH easier than using terry squares! And cuter too 😉
