Let’s see what they have to say:

The Simplest Modern Nappy: Prefolds – Trifolds? What Are Their Benefits and How Can I Use Them?

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

Everyone should have a few flat nappies in their stash, such as prefolds.  They are great for boosting nappies, and as they dry quickly, make a great emergency back up nappy when all else fails.  The flat nappies in my stash also get used for all sorts of non-nappy things, wiping faces, polishing rags, you name it, we’ve used a flat nappy for it.

Fiona from Darlings Downunder:

Prefolds are cheap (bamboo or hemp ones retail for about $10 each, cotton ones are much less), versatile (they can be used as inserts for pocket nappies or for boosting, and have 101 uses around the home – especially as cleaning cloths), and are a great way of increasing your stash on a budget. They come into their own for newborns who need so many changes a day, but don’t require huge absorbency.
Folding prefolds can seem confusing, but it’s a lot easier than it looks! If your prefold is too long, you can just fold down the front (good for boys) or the back (poo containment!) so it fits. These are the most common ways to fold a prefold:
 Fold your prefold into thirds lengthways (a prefold is usually divided into 3 panels of varying thickness anyway, so you will be able to see which lines you should be folding on). The prefold become a long pad. Tuck this pad into a well fitting cover and place it on the baby.
 Fold the prefold as above and then fan out the back (like in this picture).
Place the baby on the prefold, pulling the narrow part up between the legs. Then wrap the ‘fan’ part around the sides and secure with a Snappi – or even just hold it in place with a snug fitting cover. This is called the Angel Wing fold.
 The Bikini twist is popular for girls, or when the baby has chubby thighs. It works best if the prefold is rectangular in shape. Lay the prefold out flat and lie the baby down so the short back of the nappy comes just above the waist. Keeping the back flat, take the front corners of the prefold and ‘twist’ the prefold in the middle in between the baby’s legs so that the left corners in now on the right and vice versa. It should look a bit like this:
Then pull the front up between the baby’s legs and secure with a Snappi.

Liz from Hatchlings Cloth Nappies:

Prefolds/trifolds are great, you can use them under a cover with a pin or snappi or tri-folded and placed inside a cover. They are comparatively inexpensive and in a lot of cases you don’t need as many different sizes as with fitted or all in one nappies. Watch out if you have a wiggly baby though, any system that is not all joined together can be a nightmare to get on!

Liz from Hatchlings Cloth Nappies:

Prefolds/Trifolds are a cheaper option initially (although some people do use them the entire time their babies are in nappies). There are many folds you can use. The simplest just requires you to fold the nappy in three and place it in a cover. My favourite was the angel fold. To do this you place the prefold flat onto the changing area and put babies bottom on it then fold over the lower edges of the prefold to meet in the middle.
Finally bring the front up between the babies legs. Then bring the back of the prefold around and snappi/pin it together (See Pictures).

Melanie & Diana of Bodeo:

Prefolds are shaped like a traditional terry square, but they have an extra layer of absorbency sewn into the middle. They are easy to fold up, as you don’t need to do any complex folds to increase absorbency in the wet zone. They can be done up with a snappi/pin, or laid into a cover, using the cover to hold the prefold into place. The cover must be well fitted for this to work! Trifolds are often a 30cm x 30cm square, and are able to be folded into 3 and used as a booster. They can be stuffed into a pocket nappy, or laid into any nappy of your choice.

Misty from FluffyBuns:

Prefolds are awesome for new bubba’s, they are cheap and you can use them as inserts once bub grows out of them.
Trifolds can be used in the same way however they are better for older bubs, I find them a tad bulky for new babies. They work great as night time boosters.

What Modern Cloth Nappy Style or Brand Should I Buy?

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. This is Modern Cloth Nappy advice from a series by the Autumn 2011 sponsors of the Green Promise Nappy Event.

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.

Detergents and the Modern Cloth Nappy – What Do I Need to Know?

baby instructionsDetergents and the Modern Cloth Nappy – What Do I Need to Know?

What is the Best Way to Wash and Care for Your Modern 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 our nappy experts have to say about our MCN topic: Detergents and the Modern Cloth Nappy… What do I need to know?

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

Stay right away from any bleaches, enzymes, softeners and stick either with an eco-type powder or liquid, or a specific nappy detergent such as Rockin’ Green. Lots of sun is fantastic for making your nappies smell clean and fresh!

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

Use about 1/4 ? 1/2 of the amount you usually do and choose a washing powder that is phosphate free. Do not use a fabric softener as they will coat the fabric of the nappy and reduce its absorbency.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

I’ve always used half the amount of detergent that the box/bottle recommends. They still get clean and they don’t smell like detergent!

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I recommend looking at the article The Science of Washing Nappies, and finding out about SoapNuts and learning all you can from our nappy experts on this page, as well as here and here! Plus, do take careful note of the washing instructions from the maker of the nappy – it may have fabrics or embellishments in need of special washing care.

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Use a mild and natural detergent. Avoid anything that says it contains active brighteners or softeners and fragrance or perfume. Fragrance and perfume in products are usually phthalates in disguise (Don’t know about this nasty found in many household products? – try a Google search to find out more).

How Do I Damage a Washable Modern Cloth Nappy?

baby instructionsDamaging Your Washable Modern Cloth Nappy – How NOT to!

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

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 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!

Cheap Cloth Nappies – Recommendations for A Budget-Friendly Washable Cloth Nappy Stash…

WIN a modern cloth nappy - Join our Giveaways List

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

You want to get your cloth Nappy Stash on the cheap to get started? Here are our experts’ tips on buying a budget friendly stash of cloth nappies…

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…

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 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.

Top Cloth Nappy Tips: Modern Cloth Nappy Boosters and Inserts: What You Should Know…

baby instructionsModern Cloth Nappy Boosters and Inserts – How Do You Use Them Best?

What is an Insert? What is a Booster? Is There a Difference Anyway?

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 Find Out What Our Nappy Experts Have to Say About Our Topic:  Top Tips For Modern Cloth Nappy Boosters and inserts: What you should know…

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

If using BBH Petites, buying additional inserts will extend your stash somewhat. The night boosters are great for boosting up bamboo fitteds or MagicAlls for night time use or use as extra inserts for Multifits. They can also be used as prefolds on small newborns or even as great cloths for soaking up spills or putting under the sheet of a toilet training toddler 🙂

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

Inserts and Boosters for pocket nappies can often be exchanged between brands. If necessary choose an insert that is more suitable for your environment i.e. if you live in a cold climate and drying is a concern choose a faster drying material like microfibre or a trifold rather than a multilayered bamboo booster/insert.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

I guess for me it comes down to fabrics. What do you want next to your baby’s skin? How long do you expect the nappy to be on? For something like a night nappy, bamboo is the most absorbent and very soft. If you’re looking for something that dries quicker, hemp is still very absorbent but quicker to dry than bamboo.

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I am not an expert on these – which is why this question is here, and woo hoo I’m learning new stuff!

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Be careful of over-boosting pocket nappies, too much and you will cause a leg gape and possibly have some leaks. When you boost fitted nappies, place the booster on the outside of the nappy – you’ll get the extra absorbency without compromising fit around the legs.

Organic Goodness… What are the Benefits of Organic or Unbleached Cloth Nappies?

WIN a modern cloth nappy - Join our Giveaways List

Organic Goodness: What are the Benefits of Organic or Unbleached Cloth Nappies?

Organic – this brings to mind the idea of less chemicals, a reduced ecological impact over regular farming and manufacturing processes, and thoughts about sensitive baby skin.

When looking around at the sort of reusable cloth nappies you want to buy for your baby, you’ll see a lot of shops will offer you information and products that are organic, unbleached or ‘natural’. What does this mean when it comes to non disposable 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:

Why do mums choose organic, unbleached or natural nappies?

Louise from Nip Naps:

People are much more aware now about environmental issues and doing things that damage the environment unnecessarily. Most people are more than happy to have unbleached nappies because it uses less chemicals during manufacture and doesn’t make any difference to how the nappy works. I think people are also less inclined to bleach unbleached nappies during washing because they are not trying to maintain the pristine white of when they were new. Organic Cotton is also a wonderful product – not only are there less chemicals used in it’s growing/manufacture, there are less chemical residues in the fibres that sit next to your baby’s skin.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

Because a young infant’s skin is thinner than an adult, so any residues from manufacturing regular fabric may enter the baby’s system through their skin. Organic fabric are minimally processed so they have less chemical residues, are usually softer and more absorbent than their regularly processed counterparts.

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

A lot of mums choose organic nappies just so they know there are no chemicals coming in contact with their babies skin, this is especially important for bubs with sensitive skin or eczema who may react to bleaches, dies or plastics in other nappies. Others like knowing that their nappies are more environmentally sensitive with no pesticides used in the production of the materials.

Tamara from Baby Mumma:

Some babies can have sensitivities to the man made fibres. Some people just prefer to be organic. For different reasons people prefer difference fabrics. For me it was a matter of testing out the different fabrics on the market to see what worked best for me and my children.

Misty from Fluffybuns:

I know that I would rather have only ‘natural’ fibres close to my bubba’s bum. Most mcn’s are made with bamboo which doesn’t use much water to grow, although the microfibre alternative dries in no time and is comfy on bubba’s bum, and they are just as safe.

Laura from the Cloth Nappy Co:

Your precious baby has delicate skin and that skin deserves the best! Organic nappies ensure that your baby is not affected by harsh chemicals and they reduce the risk of nappy rash and eczema. When you know that no regular disposable nappy ever made has broken down, you realise what a terrible impact they are to our planet. In this day and age of information and technology, we are well-informed enough to know what is happening in the world and this is an issue that needs to be addressed. We have a responsibility to our earth to protect it and to do our part to preserve it for our children and our children’s children.
