    I brought Bummies prefolds but they are too big for my 6 week old bub and leak. So I have been using Seventh Generation eco friendly nappies and they are great. They are nice and small and I am kinda dreading using the prefolds now! I have also tried Natures Child but found them to be huge on a newborn.

    I voted for Baby Love cause I use them most often, but have also used huggies and aldi, and had no real problems with any of them.
    Also have a couple of itti bittis which I love but I haven't really made the investment to get a full set....

    We're hoping to give cloth nappies a go, have mainly just flats and no covers as of yet, anyone know where we can buy cheap covers as we dont want to be spending too much in case its not for us, also we have bought some disposable liners... is there anything else we need or that anyone can recommend to us that will make things easier?

    Thanks for the advice, I looked but don't really understand how the website works, is it like ebay? Would I have to pay on top of what the listed price is? Shame I didn't ask a few days ago!!

    I saw some covers for cloth nappies in Kmart today for $2.29! Can't get cheaper than that! They were nothing flash, but they weren't that crinkly plastic I think they had at least some cotton in them. Anyway, very very cheap if you're wanting to experiment with cloth without too much of an investment.

    as for covers, those cheapo covers are CRAP and a waste of every cent of the $2 you will pay
    They leak, cause rashes, irritate bubs bum and don't breath at all. A good way to turn you OFF cloth!

    I am loving Aldi now after using Huggies for almost a year of DD's life! I liked Huggies, can't really knock them but DD was leaking quite regularly with them, even when I went up a size? Was a bit disappointed. Are they made in China now? I heard something about this. Where were they made before?

    I have recently switched to Aldi sposies. They are so absorbent! I do like Huggies but Aldi are 16c cheaper PER NAPPY and that is when Huggies were on special!!

    Okkkkk they aren't as pretty as Aldi but I am so amazed at how good Aldi nappies are? Any other Mums who use Aldi and love them as much as us?

    currently using huggies, but, thinking of changing to something abit cheaper... although, if i buy in bulk when they are on special, they are not as expensive. Have never paid more then $30 for a box of 90 nappies yet.
    Wow Debbie, that is cheap! I have NEVER seen Huggies for $30 a box! Always 2 boxes for $66 here or a box on special for $35. And my DD was in WALKER size when I was using Huggies and they only came in a box of 64! But $30 is awesome!

    I voted Aldi. But we use Aldi nappies during the day and huggies at night.

    my DD has some nappy rash, around her bottom. would aldi be causing this? she has only gone to aldi ones the last week or so. she also uses them at night. i find they do not leak. i do love them though!

    I use Aldi, never had a hassel, I have been told that Aldi are made by Huggies, I think they are just an earlier model of huggies. The nappoes have never given my son nappy rash, but any wipes other than curash do.

    I think all kids will react differently to different brands, so find the cheapest one that works for you and go with it.

    I use cloth for DS, Huggies before cloth.
    But with my girls I used VIP's. They were great. Made by the same company as huggies, Kimbie's or kimberly clark or something, so just as good for half the price, but no beading gel stuff at nappy changes.
    They aren't around anymore I don't think.
