Let’s see what they have to say about our Modern Cloth Nappy Question:

Starting With Reusable Nappies – My Friend Is Expecting Her First Baby. What Should I Buy For Her First MCN?

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

Try to go with something nice looking, trim, and easy to use.  Most of all though it should be something reliable, too many people make the mistake of being put of MCN, simply because they start with something that just doesn’t work for them.   Little-ducks pocket nappies are a great, basic first nappy.

Liz from Hatchlings Cloth Nappies:

There are sooooo many options here – personally I would recommend a Small Hatchlings Cloth Nappy, the small size is a great fit on new-borns and the inserts are one size so can be used as the bub grows, but I will admit to being a little biased there 🙂 Apart from that I would advise buying something easy to use and really cute, that way she will be hooked!

Liz from Hatchlings Cloth Nappies:

If your friend is interested in using modern cloth nappies a cute first option is a Bubblebubs Just Hatched nappy otherwise you can’t really go wrong with one of Australia’s most popular brands such as an Itti Bitti or Baby Beehinds nappy.  These brands also regularly have limited edition colours come out which would make a lovely gift.

Melanie & Diana of Bodeo:

Some beautiful, stretchy bamboo prefolds, along with a couple of good covers. A cover that has a gusset or two in the leg is a poo saver!

Misty from FluffyBuns:

To start with an all in one nappy is the easiest. there is no folding, soaking, no fiddling with inserts, you just put the nappy on and that is it. Start with a collection of around 12 nappies – this will be enough if you wash daily (prefolds and small fitted – such as motherease- are best for new bubs), plus a wetbag.

Jane from Little Bear Bums:

If your friend has a new baby, or is yet to give birth, I definitely recommend a sized system over OSFM (One size fits most). The OSFM nappies are fantastic but can look very bulky on a new baby, and bulk can put people off using cloth. So go for a small to start with such as the Itti Bitti D’lish range, or Baby BeeHinds Magicalls or Petite All-in-2s.

  1. Choose the absorbent materials you want to use, bamboo, hemp or microfibre. Then PUL or wool for the cover.

    Buy one or two to see which fits best and is best for your circumstances. Eg all in ones r great but hopeless for drying in winter in Victoria.

    I found the one size fits most the best but only after they reach 5.5kgs. Also found pocket and snap together nappies the best, because drying is easier and they are easier to put on your baby (so you are not always the one changing the nappy).
