The World of Cloth Nappies

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!

Little Lamb.  I've tried their cotton, bamboo and micro fibre nappies.  Micro fibre I'd say are great for very little ones as they virtually come out dry from the washing machine, but then move on to bamboo or cotton for better absorbency.  If you don't want to go for an all in one (best containment and less plastic as only one wrap required per several nappies), these are the best.  Very good shape and fit, and their wraps are definitely in my opinion the best in the market.  No leakages…

Little Lamb bamboo nappies are incredibly soft and extremely absorbent. They are also a fantastic price for a sized nappy system. Little Lamb bamboo is the

Bambooty Easy Dry.  Totally gorgeous prints - these strawberry ones are my fave!  They wash really well and still look almost as new.  These are a VERY small and low waist fit which initially made me a bit dubious about their ability to contain, but I've been impressed.  My daughter is fairly small - I used the medium size from about 8months to 15months, from about a year on a booster was required.  The poppers are good and well placed - nice as don't stick to everything in the wash like…

Fuzzi Bunz One Size V2. A disappointment I'm afraid.  The adjustment system was no good for me - I was never sure what was right for optimum containment without being too tight.  Also has really suffered in the wash.  And since babe's been about 1, there are easily pee leakes - as you can see in the pic the white inner comes all the way out, which means it comes into contact with clothes, making them wet too.

Motherease One Size Organic Cotton. Very big - not suitable from birth.  I think I started using from about 6m or even later. Pretty thin too - I've usually added a booster.  Nice, easy fastening. seems a pretty comfy/loose fit.  Overall pretty bog standard, ok but not my fave my a mile.

The Motherease Terry Towelling Nappies are made from the Softest Cotton and are Super Absorbent. Save compared to Disposable Nappies too!

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...

Mother Ease Rikki PUL Rainforest. very cute - I bought the smallest size and that was perfect for my newborn (3.5kg).  I used with the folded muslins, and it worked great.

Earthlets biodegradable liners.  These are gorge.  Super soft and strong, good size, good value, and ecofriendly.  Washed fine in the washing machines if they'd only been wet so could reuse once or twice. What more could you want?!

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.
