What Do You Recommend as the Best Modern Cloth Nappies for Larger Babies and Toddlers?

If your baby has a ‘buddha belly’ or thunder thighs, or is now a toddler, which are the best styles of Australian cloth nappies to choose from?

We’ve asked our panel of nappy experts to recommend the best cloth nappy to consider in these situations. Read on for a range of brands to examine.

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 they have to say:

What do you recommend as the best modern cloth nappies for larger babies and toddlers?

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

You can go for a sized nappy in large.  Extremely Nappies come in Super Size, to fit 2-5 year olds.  They have an extra absorbancy for bigger bladders: giving 6 layers of bamboo, 3 of microfiber.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

Pikapu is a perfect choice for larger babies and toddlers, the size range says it fits to 18kg but customers have reported that the nappy is fitting their 20kg toddler.

Helen from EzyPeezies:

I would recommend EzyPeezies pull-up bamboo nappies as the best modern cloth nappy for larger babies and toddlers. I have designed these nappies myself, based on my knowledge, experience and needs as a cloth nappy-ing mum of two. The super elastic waist means that they have a lot of give, fitting babies and toddlers well past 3 .They also pull up and down easily when they reach the standing stage, making them super easy to change on the go and fantastic for toilet training.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Baba + Boo, UK award winning nappies as they are adjustable by poppers from birth (approx. 3.5kg) to potty training (approx. 15kg). Baba + Boo nappies have been designed by Eve Bell to ensure the best fit possible for your little one. They are not a generic nappy made in China with the Baba+Boo brand attached, they are one of a kind.

What Do You Recommend As Your Favourite OSFM or OSFA Modern Cloth Nappy?

One Size Fits Most or One Size Fits All are a popular style of Australian modern cloth nappy.

Which brand to choose? Read on for recommendations from a number of makers and retailers of OSFA and OSFM cloth nappies…

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 they have to say:

What do you recommend as your favourite OSFM or OSFA modern cloth nappy?

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

I make and use Extremely Nappies, so these are the ones I can vouch for.  I have used a few other brands over the years, but prefer Extremely Nappies because they fit the best for my children.  I like velcro closures, but they come in snaps too.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

We recommend the Pikapu nappy, it fits from newborn to toddler (3-18kg), has twin leg gussets that prevent leakages (a must), holds up to 450mL and is quick drying so its back in your stash really quick. Is a perfect all-rounder nappy and is great for winter as it dries super quick.

Marnie from Noonee Wilga:

Although there are some wonderful OSFM and OSFA modern cloth nappies around, you still should have some terry flats in your stash. These are the ultimate in OSFA nappies because you can fold them to fit any baby from newborn to large toddler. And they are so useful for all those other clean up jobs that babies and toddlers require as well!

Jenny from Baby Bare:

Of course Baby Bare’s ‘Bare Cub’ – not too wide in the crouch, not too trim in the bottom, snaps closed across the hips so it doesnt sit up too high. Its also trim and fits under clothes. Lots of options to adjust the absorption as its both a snap in and a pocket nappy in one. It also fits up to quite a big toddler.

Jodi from MCN Lovers R Us:

My fave OSFM at the moment are WAHM brand Itty Bitty Bums pockets – they are a great trim fit and come in lots of cute prints which is always a bonus to me. For a budget buy, my favourite OSFM pockets are coolababy and sunbaby nappies. I recently tried Rydees Australia MCNs and was very impressed by them too – they are an AI2 style.

Helen from EzyPeezies:

EzyPeezies pull-up bamboo nappies are my absolute favourite OSFM nappy. I have designed these nappies myself, based on my knowledge, experience and needs as a cloth nappy-ing mum of two! They fit my youngest right from birth, but the best part is that they pull up and down easily when they reach the standing stage, making them super easy to change on the go and fantastic for toilet training.

Best Reusable Nappies – What Modern Cloth Nappy Brands are the Best to Use?

baby instructionsBest Reusable Nappies – What MCN Brands are the Best to Use?

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.

What was your first cloth nappy and what did you like about it?

Spring Green Promise Nappy Sponsors – Congo Advice #4

The Sponsors of the Spring Green Promise Nappies are your Nappy Doulas for this series of ‘Congo Questions’.

All Spring Sponsors were invited to contribute their expertise. Each donated a special cloth nappy as a giveaway prize to become an ambassador for ‘Nappy Change’ as it stops a disposable heading to landfill each time it is worn. This seasonal giveaway strives to reach 100 donated nappies in a future round, and you can register at any time to play. You can enter into the draw for one nappy, or all of them!

What was your first cloth nappy and what did you like about it?

I’m pleased to have contributions from a number of your Green Promise Nappy Sponsors included in this article. I’d like to thank them for their time and for sharing their experience to help you make the most of your green nappies! We have Louise from Nip Naps, Katerina from Twinkle Lily, Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba, Yoland from Bumbino, Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies, Amy and Nat from Little Diamond Bums and Liz of Real Nappies NZ.

Let’s see what your nappy doula’s did when getting started with cloth nappies:

Louise from Nip Naps:

Mother-ease one size with air flow cover – it just fit so beautifully compared to the terry squares and made him look sooooo cute! It’s still my favourite nappy!

Katerina from Twinkle Lily:

My first cloth nappy was a BabyBeehinds, reliable, affordable and a well known brand.

Michelle from Sustainable Hemp Products:

A terry flat (we are talking 17 years ago here when the dinosaurs walked the earth.) It was cheap, and good for the environment even though bulky at first on bub.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

My first cloth nappy were muslin and terry flats.

I liked terry flats for their absorbancy and quick dryness, these were sufficient for the newborn stage.

I liked muslin flats for their softness on newborn skin.

Yoland from Bumbino:

I was a new mum when I was in my twenties and again recently in my forties. When my first two children were little, disposable nappies were not widely used. Cloth nappies were the norm and there was not much choice at all in cloth nappies. My first cloth nappies were the simple towelling squares, fastened with pins. A pair of “fluffies” or sometimes plastic pants were worn over the top. What did I like about them? Ummm…nothing is coming to mind!

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

The first MCN I ever bought was a BumGenius version 3, I loved that it was adjustable so I wouldn’t have to keep bying bigger sizes, that it was waterproof so no need for covers, and that it was nice and slim fitting while still being very absorbent.

Amy and Nat from Little Diamond Bums:

Amy: My first cloth nappy was a pocket nappy and I liked it because it was one size, easy for hubby to use and a very cute print.

Nat: My first nappy was a small prefold with a cover. I love the prefold because it dried so quickly but when I discovered all the other types of nappies such as prints and oSFM my addition took hold!!

Liz of Real Nappies NZ:

My first nappy was the prefold and cover type – I just could not believe that you no longer had to use huge sheet nappies, pins and plastic pants! What an eye-opener. Of course by then I was hooked to MCN’s and wanted to try the all-in-ones, one-size and pockets. Although the others I tried were good, I still kept on coming back to my prefold and cover nappies, I love the fact they are cotton, simple to use, the most cost effective and of course the most effective for us! Plus they are backed by a unique 2-child guarante whereby they are replaced if they fail… well you can’t ask for more than that!

The question for you is easy: What cloth nappy did you start with?
