    Question What type of nappy was this?

    Was at the movies the other day and the girl next to me changed her bubba and i noticed he was wearing a material nappy that did up with press studs? What would you call this nappy and does anyone know where i can buy them? I didnt want to interupt her movie viewing and she was gone before i could ask any questions!
    I had always intended to use cloth with DS but the washing, ironing, folding all got too much. Now that summer is here, i think the young master of the house will be spending most of his time in a nappy and singlet, so i would love to get some of these.

    google and you will be spoilt for choice But the clothies thread is a great place to start- There's the resident cloth Goddess Gigi who give brilliant answers to questions about mcn! It can be a little confusing but you'll pick up the jargon in no time!

    My peapod nappies have white plastic press studs about eight I think across the front so they can be adjusted. I got mine from baby winks but you can get them online

    Yeah, you'll have lots of choices about MCNs that do up with press studs (I'm loving them atm cause DD has worked out how to undo velcro!). I agree, have a look at some online stores and find a style you like the look of. It can help to buy a couple of different styles first to try out (cause they all fit differently on your bubs) then buy more of the ones you like!

    ... and then you'll get addicted.

    We've just started moving to MCN and my DF loves them, his panic at folding a nappy was holding us back but he thinks these are easy! And he is just as excited as I am at planning to buy them!

    Yes i was ironing them.. maybe thats where i went wrong. Standing over an ironing board thinking there must be more to life than this!. DS threw a spanner into my computer time yesterday so i endevour to sit down over the next few days and look into it properly. i definiately like the idea of the trying 2nd hand first, because as you all have said there seems to be so many to choose from. Could become my new addiction maybe?
