Hi

I've brought a few different MCN's to trial them. I have now narrowed down what I want but don't seem to be able to find it. I'd like a pocket style nappy this is OSFM that will last till toilet training, or at least close to, that you can add an extra booster to for night times and that has fasteners (is that what the little round clips are called?!) rather than velcro and a smooth rather than fleecy outer layer. Prefer mainly cotton and bamboo rather than synthetic fibres. Any suggestions welcome!

Thanks!

Itti bitti have what you want but, honestly, I prefer sunbaby.  Plus, they're really cheap.  I couldn't fault them.

ETA - actually itti bitti are sized.. S, M, L. So disregard those.

They're sized and leaked like there's no tomorrow on my kids.
OP, try these ones http://stores.ebay.com.au/Bountiful-Bubs/M...op=16&_sc=1

I purchased a heap from that particular ebay seller when I was pregnant with DS2. He was 3.5kg born and they fitted him straight away, they also fit my 21 month old DD. She's Australia based and the nappies arrived in the same amount of time my order of large Baby Beehinds  for DD took to get here.

Fuzzibunz!
Smooth cover, OSFM, snaps, lifetime warranty and extra elastics supplied, easily adjusted, pocket nappy. They do come with microfibre inserts but you can buy hemp/bamboo as well if you want.

They are the best!

So far I have found my Peapods, Designer Bums and Bountiful Bubs MCN's good. I have a lot of other brands but ATM they are too big around his legs. All of mine are OSFM apart from some of the Peapods.

#13 Caloah

Itti do have an OSFM, but it isn't a pocket so probably isn't what you are after anyway.

I have mostly itti's but have a few BBH multi-fits and while they may be a little bulky on a small bub, they are great.

Hi OP,

Here are a couple of options that fit your criteria:

1.  Swaddlebees Econappi (OSFM Pocket Nappy with snaps) - great quality, the pocket liner is made of cotton velour and not synthetic microfibre.  Bamboo inserts.

2. Blueberry (OSFM Pocket with snaps or velcro) - much the same as the above nappy but the liner is a synthetic microfibre.  Bamboo or microfleece inserts

Both of these options are on the pricey side.

I would probably consider the velcro fastening nappies as you have narrowed the field quite a bit. Velcro gives a better fit, in my opinion and a lot less fiddly.

There's a reasonably new brand out called Cutie Bums that are only $15 and fit all your criteria.
You can get bamboo boosters or the usual microfibre ones they come with.
My 2.5yr old is wearing them and my friends new born(ok, she'd 4 months old now) has been wearing them a while.
They are on FB and in some stores and online as well I think.
Plus if you get their minky ones, it's a really soft smooth minky, not at all bulky.

We use OZ Nappies (oznappies.com.au) and Rydees (on facebook) as well as a couple of fancy MCN's we have been given.  They are both OSFM pocket nappies, the oz nappies come with 2 pads and although they would probably never fit a newborn, we were able to use them on our daughter from about 3 weeks.  They are pretty cheap, particularly if you buy a pack and the ones we bought are still really bright almost 12 months later (the yellow is a particular favourite).  My partner loves them because they require no brain power (direct quote).

Rydees are a minky outer so not what you are after, they are my favourite though and the wings cross over so would fit a pretty small bub.  They are having a closing down sale at the moment so might be a way to get a couple of cheapies.

Is there a particular reason you don't like velcro?  

We have Greenkids and while the oldest ones (from when DD was born) have needed some running repairs I can't fault them and they are through to DS being 18mo.  They have been in constant use since DD was about 2mo.

As they were both in nappies for a crossover of about 3 months I bought 6 more when DS was born but otherwise DDs will last until he is TT'd.

They can be boosted for night use and are usually fine for DS overnight.  He goes through HEAVY wetting stages and we use a disposable for a few nights and then go back to MCN.

Thanks so much for all the suggestions! Really appreciate it. So many to choose from now.

I was thinking to avoid velcro as I had heard it tended to not last as well as the snap closing nappies, but maybe I'm wrong?

#23 Sharlie2878

Posted 25 January 2013 - 08:47 AM

we have a couple of velcro fitted nappies and covers, they are still good so no issues with quality.  THe biggest problem is once your baby starts gripping things, they soon work out the velcro makes an awesome sound and nappies are very quickly removed!  

Ours don't make it off the change table unless she is wearing pants over them now.

Hi OP
All of my nappies are aplix (velcro) fastening.  I have 24 Green Kids nappies, which were used on DS1 for 26 months and now using them on DS2.  They are still as new. Babies do go through a stage of trying to undo the velcro (because of the lovely sound).  For me this was only a very short period and I avoided it by using those Bonds Baby Tails over the top of the nappy.  I found aplix infinitely more adjustable than the snaps, ensuring a nice snug fit.
I do like the look of snaps though, but for practical reasons went with aplix (and I'm really happy with my decision).
Good luck with your decision.  It's so overwhelming.

I saw some OSFM by Peapods at the shop the other day. I might have to try them, I've got the sized ones and they are good quality compared to the cheapie ones that I also have.
