Our Nappy Experts Share What Their Own Favourite Brand of Washable Nappy is at the Moment…

With so many nappy brands available, from WAHM made in homes, to commercially produced overseas, you just know there is a nappy brand out there that is right for your baby. In fact, there are probably HEAPS of brands that would suit your baby! What nappy brand do you choose? This article asks Our Nappy Experts which brand is their favourite at the moment – it may be their own, the most popular one at their site lately, or the latest improvement on a design, even the prettiest print or softest fabric…

Our Nappy Experts are invited to contribute to these cooperative questions so that you get a range of informative and experienced responses about the topic. Enjoy and discover something new, and share with us in the comment box below.

Let’s see what our MCN shop owners recommend: What is your favourite nappy brand right now?

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

We’ve always loved Baby BeeHinds…

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

The type of nappy I like constantly changes. At the moment I’m very busy so I like the Itti Bitti AIO as I don’t need to put anything together.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

Little Para Pants – I’m a little biased. 😉

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Omaiki – I didn’t like OSFM nappies until I tried their AIO and now I am a total convert. They are trim, absorbent, really easy to use and also very cute, I love the logo on the bum!

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I don’t sell nappies at my site, in fact help interested folks (and amenable babies) to reduce their overall use of nappies, but must say I love our Krap Katchers Night Nappy, made by Nicole. It is awesome, NEVER leaks, is pretty (it was a semi-custom made nappy) and easy to use. I stuff it with whatever is around actually… terry towelling nappies, inserts from other nappies, even flannels. It is a ‘Stuff ‘Em Silly’ nappy. Having not needed night nappies with my first son, using nappies at night with son #2, who wears an orthotic brace at nights and so wears a night nappy, exploring night time nappies is something that has become of interest to me, LOL.

How Do I Damage a Washable Modern Cloth Nappy?

Knowing How Washable Nappies Are Damaged Will Help You Avoid This Pitfall And Extend The Life (And Savings) Offered By Using MCN…

Let’s see what our nappy experts have to share with us about our MCN topic:  How do I damage a modern cloth nappy?

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

Not washing frequently enough, soaking in bleaches/sanitisers, washing too hot, coating with creams, tumble drying on hot.

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

How you wash your nappies can affect them. Do not use bleach, napisan or fabric softeners. The way nappies are hung on the line can also damage the elastic. Place them flat or drape them over the line sideways to prevent pressure being put on the elastic and if you are using a nappy rash cream make sure you use a liner.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

Lots of ways. If you leave it in the wet bag/bucket too long, it can grow mould. Using vinegar in the wash will eat away the elastic and possibly delaminate PUL. If you use a Snappi on a non-Snappi-able nappy, you’ll get holes, runs, or leaks.

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I have had then come out grey after something new went in the wash with them, turning EVERYTHING grey, sigh. The first time a new night nappy was used, hubby washed it, without turning it inside out – so, sigh, pilling, no more of that pristine beauty of a new nappy, just like that – BAM! What do I recommend? A tip one mum left on the blog here was to put a capful of disinfectant in with the pre-rinse. Good tip that I always do now.

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Using zinc & petroleum based nappy creams can affect the fibres of MCNs and reduce their absorbency. Be sure to use a liners (either flushable or microfleece if you must use a chemical-based nappy rash cream). Over use of the dryer on your nappies can deteriorate elastic and PUL, so keep dryer time to a minimum. Leaving wet nappies in a bucket for too long isn’t a good idea either, try to wash every second day if possible. Speaking of buckets, don’t soak your nappies in bleach, it can destroy the fabric of your nappies and this too will reduce their absorbency. Dry pailing is best!
