Hi,



I am due in September and would like to use re-usable nappies. Just not totally sure what brand to go for. Has anyone tried Little Lambs as these seem to be the best I could find on the net? They are a two part bamboo nappy with cloth liners. Are they worth the money? The web reviews are good but that is from their own website so any outsider views much appreciated. Or recommendations of other brands similar in type?

I have a home business where i make my own cloth diapers. Our diapers are called Green Line Diapers. We have a detailed facebook business site with videos, reviews, pictures and more talking about Green Line Diapers. We have had only happy customers, no leaks and the prints are great!!! Looking for a unique design and cheaper diaper... Check out Green Line Diapers (search on facebook). We ship anywhere!!

I thought I was going to have to try a number of different cloth diapers before buying... so for my first 2 children I used disposables. Ugh! The money I could have saved. My friend bought these bamboo one size (OS) adjustable diapers with the the insert sewn into the diaper (AIO). AMAZING! They come in nice pastel colours and white, wash like a dream and feel so super soft. I bought them from the LizzieBits Store out here in Kamloops,BC(www.lizziebaby.ca or you can check them out at their home website www.dri-line.com) My friend used them for a car trip and her son slept for 8 hours straight with one on and he could have gone longer... it was so absorbant. One great thing about the bamboo is it's antibacterial properties. They also offer a Toddler size which has been great for bedtime for my toddler! And BEST YET... they're quite affordable... $14.95 (: HtH!

I'd recommend purchasing a variety of prefolds, fitteds, pockets and all-in-ones so that you can decide which you prefer and which work best with your baby. This is what was recommended to us with our first baby and I am so glad we tried a variety. I think we had about 6 different brands and styles. We settled with BumGenius organic one-size all-in-ones, but are trying a couple more all-in-ones now that we have another baby coming in a couple months (Mother's Touch and TotsBots Easyfit). It seems that everyone finds their favorite and they definitely vary. Good luck!

My favorite website is www.greenmountaindiapers.com/
I bought all of my diapering gear there.
I use prefold (no pins, but the snappies are nice to have) and covers. I have tried almost all of the covers they have and have never had a leak. Not once! I don't think I would want all in ones because you have to wash the whole thing, and with the regular ones, you don't have to wash them unless they're stinky or poopy. I have to buy different sizes of the diapers and covers, but we are expecting another, so i know they'll get lots of use.

The Great Cloth Nappy Hunt is on for those in Australia and New Zealand. I found it to be extremely helpful when I was choosing which nappies to use. They have some fantastic specials and 150 sponsor sites to browse as your leasure. I have tried 5 different kinds of nappies now. What I looked for was a 'One Size' nappy, because they grow with your baby so you don't have to buy any extras as baby grows; a 'Pocket' feature, so you can add absobancy for extra long care trips and heavy wetters; and a 'PUL' outer layer or hidden layer, because it is highly waterproof to prevent leaks but breaths to prevent nappy rash. If you want to join the nappy hunt you need to go to the diaper decisions website and sign up. They will give you a discount code to use in most e-stores and a list of lovely websites to browse, most of which are run by WAHMs (work at home mums). Good luck.

We use bamboo Little Lambs and love them! We have had very few leaks; fewer than we have had with eco-disposables. Our baby is very tall though and he is growing out of size 2 already and he is only 6 months! They don't have a size 3 of this type of nappy, but they do a size 3 in their new type. We didn't like the polyester wraps, so we opted for the cotton gingham Modern Baby ones; there are still some on their website and we got loads on ebay. We may go for the modern baby size 3 nappies as the wraps have been so good.

We use Motherease Sandy's fitted with the air flow covers. We've been using them for 8 months now and we love them. They wash up nice, no leaks, very durable and are reasonably priced. We just tried the AIO Motherease offers and like it as well.

Don't get discouraged or overwhelmed by all the different brands and types. Any cloth diaper you go with will save you money and will work just fine. You'll eventually find your favorite like we did.

Hi there, I use Happy Heiny one size nappies. They are great because they have a waterproof outer, they change size with your baby so you only have to buy 1 set, and they are pocket nappies so you can change their absorbence if you have a heavy wetter or you are going on and extra long car trip. I have tried 4 different types but I always reach for a Happy Heiny first. They are excellent. If you are from Australia I highly recommend the services or Karen from Baby Soft Landings babysoftlandings.com.au . She is extremely knowledgable and sells other brands also. She helped me find the nappy to suit me and her customer service is fantastic.
