I have a friend who wants to get into MCN's and she's asked me about night nappies for when her baby gets out of the newborn phase of pooing every feed all night.
I never did night time cloth, only day, so I don't have much idea. What are the best night mcn's?
I know Issy Bear do some(I have their day nappies) as do BBH...but who else?

Sandmans by Sustainable Hemp Products - hands down the best night nappy I've ever used.

Im currently using Cutie Bum, I just use 2 boosters of a night & havent had a leak yet which is fantastic considering 5 week old DD does up to a 6hr stretch & likes to sleep on her side & they are a cheaper mcn!

We use bbh night nappies with disana wool covers, fool proof! Never had a leak, DS is 11 months and DD is 2 1/2, both sleep 12-14 hours no problems. Bbh have 25% off at the moment too...

My Issy Bears have been foolproof from about 3 to 11 months. However, since then they do spring leaks now and then and I am not sure if it is because DS is bigger, more wiggly or peeing more. I do have a disana wool cover so am going to try what the pp does and see if that works.

I have cutie bum for daytime, I'll suggest them for night.
Genesa forge are the ones I've heard of but couldn't recall the names of.
And I know BBh re good ones. I like how CB can get tighter on the legs. And they are cheap!

Im loving Cutie Bum, I got a full time pack so came with a few bamboo boosters as well as the microfiber ones, I find using 1 of each works a treat for sleeps

Agree with Shannon - sandman all the way teamed with a wooly cover

I'm glad to hear people like the Cutie Bum range. That is what the majority of my stock is made up of and I have had alot of people tell me that they can't be any good as they are so cheap.
I'm havinga little boy and was wondering do they work well on boys during the night? I have bought extra bamboo inserts soI could double up if needed.

Impatientmummy, are the cutie bums bulky on your little one? DS is 3 wks old and I am starting to think about using MCNs..

With the one insert through the day no, when theres 2 in there they are a bit bulkier but definitely dont bother her

We use itti bitti boo night nappies & love them!
DS is allergic to synthetic fabrics and the boo's are pretty much the only option without any, so it's lucky they work great!

We've used BBH Night nappies and they have been great.
I didn't like the Mandy Mac Purple nights, they were SO bulky!

i have used BBH night nappies and never had a leak and my DS is 2 and still feeds regularly through the night. Just need to have a decent size cover to fit over them.
