    Just popping my head in here...... my sister's DS (he's 21 now!) had a delicate little bum. He would break out in a horrible nappy rash but it was caused by ALL soap powders/ soakers. She ended up washing all of his clothes in Lux soap flakes. It was the only thing she could use up until he was about 3 or 4.

    Fluff delivery! Not really mail, as I picked it up from SIL, but I got 4 x Bonnibuns pockets, 1 x Bonnibuns AIO, 1 x GF AIO, 1 x Bubblebubs GNST and one Ecobubs pocket, plus a heap of boosters and wipes. Half of it is stuff that I gave her and now I'm getting back, but whatever! It's so fluffy and good!

    I was eyeballing the Bonnibuns when i was at Nest Nappies. They look goooood.
    I'm waiting on some fluffy mail Maz and my Widdlewuns. She posted pics of them this morning and I wish I had them.

    Does anyone find it hard to sell newborn stuff? I've been procrastinating for aaaaaages because I can't let it go.

    teresa- have you tried the nappies without liners? I haven't heard good things about some of the supermarket disposable liners. They can hold all the moisture against the skin and cause the rash.

    well we have been back in cloth now for 48 hours and everything is looking great. still using disposables at night as i have no night nappies yet and it allows me to put some zinc cream if i need on his bottom.

    poopie- ooh yay!!! how exciting, the only fellow mcn users ive met are the adelaide BB girls
    tereasa- that sucks that DS gets rashes, we've not had any nappy rash here yet *touch wood* that is other than the horrible rash he had everywhere a couple of weeks ago...fingers crossed it clears up without having to go onto sposies permanently.
    i have snapped the last week and we are back in sposies for now. i got behind when DF and i were sick and now 1) we are going away tomorrow for a week and 2) we r still short nappies that fit properly and im sick of all the extra washing. im thinking we need to do a big splurge (for us) and buy some new nappies of the types that fit rather than the 2nd hand collection of randoms that we have. so far the only ones that dont leak are the 4 ittis and 1 thirsties duo....

    Hi ladies I'm new in here, just starting out with MCNs and this looks like a great thread. Hope it's okay for me to jump in.

    I had a big lot of fluffy mail arrive this week
    I got 2 Bonnibuns, 2 GF every days, 1 GF night nappy, 1 Monk n Bear, 1 Daddle Doo, 1 Twinkle Lily, 3 Itty Bitty d'lish, 2 BBH Petite, 1 Bumcheek. And a nice selection of extra boosters/inserts. Just waiting on 3 custom WiddleWuns, 2 GF and a Chloes Toes.

    I've been busy washing them up so I can get started - I never thought I'd be so excited by washing Wonder which ones will become favourites. So far I've tried the Bumcheeks, a WiddleWuns and a Monk n Bear and I've liked all of them.

    I'm lucky that one of my best friends has a bubba the same age as mine and we're sharing our newly found cloth addiction. We're both enablers though so there's no hope of recovery any time soon

    Can I ask what your preferences are for a flushable liner? I have some microfleece coming that I intend to cut up and use if I need to use cream but thought it would be handy to have flushables too. I have a couple of silk liners just in case he gets a rash but I'm not so keen on the hand-washing so I'll only use them if I need to.

    oh jandals. you have made a great choice, cloth addiction is a great one.
    except hubby usually doesn't agree

    oh i dont use liners, found the disposable ones gave her a rash and no rash since only having the bamboo against her skin

    Thanks Kawazuki I know what you mean about DH not sharing the joy of cloth

    I'm having problems at the moment. I can't stop buying different nappies to try! The latest is 2 Bambooty's. I just know I'm going to get the hard word from DH soon as we really can't afford the amount I've been spending but I argue it will save us money in the long run.

    Do any of you like BBH Petites? They seem to cut into DS as the elastic is pretty tight - he's still at the lighter end of the weight range for a medium so I wouldn't have thought he needed a large. Just wondering if there's any secret to getting them to fit well without cutting in? Maybe they will be hanging out towards the bottom of the pile for us.

    Itty Bitty d'lish, GF and Widdle Wun`s are my top three today.

    WOTB: Bonnibuns

    Oh, and how many of you use Rockin' Green?

    I use BBH petites! We just started using the medium size and that has really helped with the cutting in factor but yes, I agree they do seem to be on the smaller side. Are yours new? I only ask because apparently they have changed their sizing to increase for the thigh area.

    I am also interested in the Rockin Green stuff - how many of you are using it? Do you use it for MCN's and clothes? We use aware sensitive and find it great but I keep hearing rave reviews about the rockin green so maybe I should find out what the fuss is about.
