    Default Which brand is best

    Ok so I have been researching all day and I'm totally stuck!

    I want to switch to MCN's but I don't know which brand to go with, so I'm asking for some help.



    THis is what I want from the nappy:
    One size fits all.
    All in one.
    Good fit.

    Please please please anyone with experience can you please weigh in on this thread cause I'm sick of paying out $40 a fortnight for nappies!!!

    I'm guessing it's pockets you want seeing as you're in this thread. Pockets are great as they dry quick and the multifit ones that snap down at the front are great value cos they will last a long time!

    I'm loving blueberry pockets! I'm quite smitten with them. They didn't really fit bub till she was 8weeks though but now they are fantastic and we will get a long time from them I think. BumG's are a good nappy but IMO they haven't stood up to the test of time and are very shabby. The newer ones out are meant to be a bit better.

    All in ones aren't one size fits most generally. There will be a bit of reconstructing after you wash as you need to adjust the boosters as bubby grows.

    I think I said this in another thread of yours but I reccon you can get a couple and see what you think. I understand the apprehension as I was exactly the same. Where abouts are you located? I'm wondering if you are close to an online store as many of them do drop in shopping too. Best thing I ever did was check them out IRL first and I left with a huge armful

    Hey thaks for replying again. I'm located in Ormeau between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. I know I'm being obssessive but we are a bit strapped for cash so I'm hoping I hit the jackpot with the brand I go for first as we aren't really in a position to be shopping around too much.

    When you say the one size fits all aren't all in ones.... am I right in saying the only thing you have to do is insert the liner into the pocket? or is there more to it than that???

    Sorry to ask so many questions, just want to be sure... also what were you talking about with the drop in shopping??? that sounds very interesting...

    My favorite nappy is the 'Pop In' nappy.

    * It is a one size fits all.
    * It has double leg gussets (which is great for runny newborn poo, if you plan on using with a newborn).
    * It has velco waist tabs.
    * It is however a all-in-two which basically means that you snap in the boosters and they unsnap to wash and dry, this does mean that they dry quicker than if they were a all-in-one.
    * You can buy an extra booster that makes it into a night nappy (I have not done this myself but I will when DD2 arrives).

    They are about $36- each but well worth it if you ask me.
    (I am not sure if Mel (Arimeh) has any left but she did have them on special in her store.)

    At the end of the day it does depend on your baby/child as they really are all different. This nappy however is the only nappy that I have NEVER had a leak from even on long trips and I see will be suitable for both my DD and newborn to share, there are alot of OSFA nappies on the market that really would not be suitable for newborns.

    I strongly suggest that if you are in no hurry find the nappy you most want to try and buy 1 or 2 and try it our before spending alot on nappies that may not work for you, then if they work - buy up big!

    Good luck .

    My favourite OSFM and AIO (all in one) nappy that doesnt need a cover is the GREENKIDS minkee.... so beautiful!!! AND the Pop-ins! They're awesome and both work well for night nappies for us too.... good luck and have fun!!!

    MCN's are the best We are full time MCN's and just love them.

    so where is the cheapest place to buy the greenkids and blueberry's? I've just looked at one store that has a pretty big mark up, so I don't think I'll be going there!!!

    Hi Ella, I know your original post was ages ago but given your location there is a mum on the gold coast who makes nappies - BonnieBuns - and they are great (at least their pockets I can recommend) and very well priced compared to a lot of others that are imported to Aust etc. If you google them you should get their site.

    I'm another fan of the Blueberry pockets. I also really like the Greenkids mikee pockets - but I haven't found anywhere that you can get them cheap We got some of our Blueberries in a bulk pack which saved some $$. Got them from Baby Blossom (google it). Karen there was very helpful in getting us the minkee patterns our hearts just couldn't live without

    Good luck!

    I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to say, I also love the Greenkids (especially Minkee) and Blueberries.

    I have Itti Bitti Tuttos which have snap in boosters so if DD has just pee'd I can just change the booster and keep the same nappy, and it is OSFM.
    I also have some of their SIO which are sized S, M and L, and they also have an AIO if you don't want the snap in options...

    I have a Pop-In coming that I got on sale for $25 but haven't tried it yet.

    I LOVE my Itti's!!

    The pockets I have are the cheapies from ebay. DS has only just started wearing them in teh last couple of weeks as before that I felt they were too big for him even on the smallest setting. I have to say that I'm loving them. I realise that they may not last as long as other brands which are better quality but for the price I bought them for I could replace them 3-4 times and still be infront kwim. Plus I wanted to see if I'd actually use cloth 1st before I started spending money on some lush ones As it happened I ended up using bamboo prefolds in newborn size BBH's covers from when he was 2 weeks old. Then he has about a month or so in spossies while he grew out of the BBH's covers and fited into these pocket nappies. I have 3 minky cushi tushi AIO and love those for special occasions but am glad I got the cheap pockets for every day wear plus I got about 20 extra boosters (the microfibre ones) for about $1 each if that and if I need extra boosting I have all the bamboo prefolds/boosters I used when he was a newborn). Oh and one last thing, they dry SO quickly! no worries about not having nappies the next day. Thankfully I had loads of the bamboo inserts for when he was newborn as they took a while to dry, if it was winter I wouldn't have been able to use bamboo. In hind sight microfibre inserts would have been better anyway. Sorry if I've gone on a bit!

    I have those too Cherished, and I have to say they are some of the better fitting and longest lasting nappies I've had. Basic and brilliant!
