Let’s see what they have to say:

Seconds cloth nappies – what makes a nappy maker dismiss a cloth nappy as a ‘second’ in quality?

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

Generally a seconds nappy will have some stitching or snap faults or they could be a perfect nappy that has fallen on the floor and become soiled.

Jenny from Baby Bare:

Anything that is not pristine is a second. We won’t sell a nappy with a broken snap or imperfection that effects it’s use. So seconds usually have a mark on them- usually that will wash out in the first wash.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Some ‘ebay cheapies’ may vary in quality in terms of cheaper materials/fibres, fit, absorbency & chemicals used in production.  Make sure the nappy you choose has been used, tested and reviewed by independent sources/parents, are made under ethical working conditions and aren’t just another generic nappy with a brand name attached/sewn on to them.

Cheap Cloth Nappies – What Is Your Recommendation for A Budget-Friendly Washable Cloth Nappy Stash?

Many mums are on one or a reduced income while there are little ones in nappies, and saving money is a high priority. Perhaps, a cheap stash is needed to get started, to save more money so better modern cloth nappies can be saved up for. What is the best advice? Let’s find out…

Let’s see what they have to say about our modern cloth nappy question:

Cheap Cloth Nappies – What Is Your Recommendation for A Budget-Friendly Washable Cloth Nappy Stash?

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

There are plenty of options out there if you are looking for something reasonably priced, you don’t have to rely on flat nappies either.  Although nappies are expensive to buy upfront, don’t forget that you’ll be saving quite a bit by using them, so it works out slightly more reasonable.  You can often sell them on after use, which helps with the cost, and it’s also worth looking at what you can get hold of second hand.  A good fitted nappy would be our one size, made from recycled cotton, it’s reasonably priced, and will last from birth onwards.

Karen from Baby Blossom:

Keep it simple. A easy system is the Weehuggers where you can change the inserts at change time and not the whole nappy. You do not need to buy a nappy for every change. Have 4-6 covers and lots of inserts.

Liz from Hatchlings Cloth Nappies:

There are a couple of options for budget-friendly stash, terry flats and pilchers are very budget friendly but for me I would use prefolds/tri-folds and covers that way you can still achieve the trim fit and cute look of some of the more expensive options without the price tag. Also make sure you do your math when weighing up the options, some of  the all-in-two options work out significantly less expensive than all-in-ones or pockets as you don’t need any where near as many covers.

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies:

I would start with prefolds as these can be used as boosters later on and buy one sized fits most nappies for when the baby is bigger. I recommend either Booroi or Ish Fly prefolds.  A cheaper one size nappy that I have found to be excellent with my son is the Organic Bugalugs Smooth Nappies. They fit from approximately 4kgs and are a pocket nappy which makes it easier to add extra boosters for overnight or if your child is a heavier wetter.

Melanie & Diana of Bodeo:

A dozen Mandy Mac MacBoos and a dozen Pikapu AIOs, and 7 Pikapu covers are a good combination to start off with. Having a mixture of bamboo & polyester nappies will ensure that you have super absorbent and quick drying nappies. A OSFM nappy is a great option for not having to buy a new set of nappies each time your baby goes up a size. If you add 6 prefolds to the mix, you’ve added 6 nappies to your stash, and also have the option of stuffing the pockets with a folded up prefold to increase absorbency – great for night time.

Misty from FluffyBuns:

All cloth nappies are budget friendly when compared to disposables. To keep your costs down even further, go for nappies that have removable inserts, this way you can have three or four inserts per nappy shell, the shells dry in a matter of hours and you can just use a new insert. Plus you don’t need to wash the shell everytime, only if it gets wet or soiled.

Jane from Little Bear Bums:

It depends on which type you end up using – for  a pocket nappy I love Issy Bears because they are One Size Fits Most and made with quality materials so they’ll last for the time you need them and beyond (therefore you won’t be replacing them so they’ll be cost effective)! If you prefer a sized nappy I love Itti Bitti D’lish – fantastic quality and a choice between Snap Ins and All in ones.
