Help me choose which brand cloth nappy to use!

Hi, at the moment I am using the flat square cloth nappies with the plastic pilchers over it, but would love to find a one size fits all cloth nappy which is waterproof as well. I have no idea on how on costs or what brand to chose so if you could help me it would be much appreciated!

I use BumGenius Organic. They adjust to be "one-size fits all", so they are the only ones you'll need. Also, they have snaps instead of velcro, and they are all-in-one. I also like that they are made from unbleached, organic cotton. They come in cool colours too. They're a bit pricey, but worth it, I think.

I like SposoEasy by Blue Penguin. I buy mine from Green Mountain Diapers They are waterproof (PUL outer) but 100% cotton inside. Fewer rash issues, fewer wash issues. They are sized, not one-size, but especially with an AIO, they are going to wear out and will need to be replaced at least once between birth and potty-learning. For my money, I'd rather buy sized and not mess with all the snaps. But BumGenius does make an organic cotton AIO now, so maybe check that out if one-size is really important to you.

Bumgenius 3.0 is the way to go!! We fell in love with ours and as long as you take care of them and follow the instructions for washing and care, they will last a long time. Way less leaks than disposables too!

i like the Lollipop & little lamb ones - aplix (or velcro to me!), but they do come in 2 sizes. I find the birth-toddler Motherease just too big for my 7wk old...

Oh, & although bamboo might be smaller, they take an age to dry...

I use Close Parent Pop-In Nappies full time. I love them so much I started a business selling them! Google them to find them near you or check them out on my site I love that they don't leak! I think it's because of the double elasticated leg gusset. Good luck! There are so many to choose from!!!

The ones I use are from the same site as Tessa's. But I use the BabyLove All in Ones with a built in breathable cover. They are great, do from 8 - 35 lbs and are very easy to use.

I personally love Kidalog baby software brand. I use the cover-less ones personally but I think they are awesome. Because they have an elastic in the back there are no poop explosions and they have an attached liner to make for quicker drying time. I used flats before I went to these too actually. You'll be surprised at how quick an easy cloth can be! Not that I minded folding, and I still used flats for night time.

If you decided to do separates, I really like the Thirsties Duo wraps for covers because there are only two sizes to buy.

We use Bum Genuis 3.0 since our 15 month old was 2 months. We recently started experimenting with other options and have fell in love with bamboo as inserts. It is much thiner! I would suggest a AIO, they seem to keep life simple. When ever I show some one my diapers they are very impressed.

This is a program were u try cloth for 10 dollars-
link about flip-
i love my flip diaper it uses inserts plastic cover and it uses snapps itstead of velcro. One packet pretty much last u all day and they r all in ones so it last.
The no mess, no fuss, no worries way to cloth diaper!
Each set includes your choice of a Moonbeam, Zinnia or Ribbit one-size cover and a One-Size Stay-Dry insert OR 100% Organic Cotton Insert.

Why Flip™?
Cloth diapering has never been so easy!
• TOSS the used insert into your diaper pail
• REPLACE the insert with a clean one
• REUSE the cover. The one-size cover and insert adjusts to fit most babies from 7-35 pounds.
Flip features:
• A waterproof shell, so no extra cover is needed.
• Wipe the inside of the cover out and use it over and over again!
• Form fitting elastic to prevent leaks.
• Patent pending comfy butterfly closure. A feature that is unique to cloth diapers made by Cotton Babies.
• No stuffing involved just tuck insert under flaps and go!
• Choose between a one-size Stay-Dry Insert or a one-size Certified Organic Cotton Insert.
• Disposable inserts are also available for use while traveling.
• Patent pending 3x3 adjustable snap system to fit most babies from birth to potty training.
We recommend using two inserts when diapering a toddler or heavy wetter overnight. Extra inserts sold separately.

We use Bumgenius 3.0 one size fits all and we LOVE them!!! We have 18 for one child and we have a second one coming in Feb and the first is still in them at night, so we plan on buying 6 more of the same and one child can use 12 and the other 12 until our first is out of them.
But we have never had any problems with them. We bought them on for 6 for $100 and 12 for $200.

I like a lot of different brands, and would suggest to you that you might also like to have more than just one brand (or style) of diaper in your stash. I really like fitteds with separate covers (like the one pictured in our group photo...which Vilate, our administrator, makes), I like pocket diapers like bumGenius, Fuzzi Bunz, Blueberry and Applecheeks, and once in a while I like all-in-ones (though not as often.) My fave fitteds are either Vilate's Nifty Nappy or Motherease cotton terry fitteds. My favorite water-proof covers are wool soakers or wool wraps, which I make myself. And I already listed my fave pocket dipes.

Good luck to you in making a decision! It's hard, but that's why I have 1 or 2 or 3 of lots of different kinds of diapers instead of a whole arsenal of just one thing. I find each type of diaper useful for different situations. (Under clothing when we're out and about, naps and nighttime, running around the house being comfortable, etc.)
