When I was pregnant I knew I wanted to use cloth nappies for both environmental and financial reasons. I was baffled by the volume of choice so ended up trying quite a few different types. Hopefully this board might help others who are trying to make up their mind about which ones to go for! If I had to pick a favourite it would have to be Little Lamb Bamboo Nappies and Close Parent V3 - both are a great fit and very reliable, the first more absorbent but second dries v quick from wash!
Junior Joy liners. Let's just say these do the job...But that's all there is in terms of positives. I found these massive and really hard, like rough silk paper, or the cheapest toilet paper you can find. Sure it goes soft once its wet but until then, can't be nice against little botties...
Little Lamb Pocket Nappy. Nice clean white look with an absorbent bamboo insert - drying is a bit speedier as the bamboo insert unfolds to a thinner square and the nappy itself is microfibre. Used the small size up to about 14 months, no complaints in performance. Pocket nappies are not my favourite - a bit of an unnecessary extra faff folding and stuffing. Unless pre-stuffed hubby won't use!
Close Parent Dream Dri V3. This is the best one size nappy I've tried - not too bulky even on very young baby and the stretchy velcro tabs make it easy to secure snugly. Brilliant as well as dries SUPER quick on the line even indoors. Washes really well and still looks almost as new. Containment is really good. The only minus is the absorbency of the micro fibre, which has only really become an issue at 18months. All in one as well so very easy - just like putting on a disposable.
