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…

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…

Junior Joy Nappy Pail. Good value, does the job.  No smells come out. With a mesh bag easy to move dirty nappies to the washing machine without needing to handle them.The main minus is that it would be good if the lid could be secured shut - once the little ones are on the go they find it hard not to explore...

Must have is a nappy bucket/pail with a mesh bag - making it quick and easy to transfer your dirty nappies to the washing machine

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.

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?!

Nappi Nippas.  These are brilliant. I used what I called "origami triangles" that I folded out of muslin squares and secured with these on my newborn.  Perfect - always comfy, cheap, always available (who doesn't have a huge pile of muslins?!), quick to dry, good on the little botty.  And these nippas are dead easy to use even on a wriggly baby!

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!
