Great for a cheap nappy
These are what I call the generic nappy on ebay. Heaps of sellers seem to sell the same nappy. I bought 10 nappies with 20 liners for $55 and I am really happy with them. I wasn't sure wether to buy them cause I thought they might be completly different from the pic but they were exactly the same. They are suprisingly good quality with nice bright colours; also the snaps/clips are good quality also. I think the outside/shell of the nappy is as good as many other expensive nappies. The inserts are microfibre and are nice qulity but don't hold he...aps of wee. I had my 2 month old bub in them with 2 liners near sraight away so not to leak. But for the price still great. Great price. Wash and dry well. Great colours. Hubby and grandma like them. Cheaper than disposables overall Liners not super absorbant. Won't fit up to a toddler. Bit awkward putting liners in; hard to make them sit straight
Value for money, but need two inserts in the pocket
Compared to MCNs costing $20 -$30 a piece, I think these are excellent value for money. They are not newborn size, but for my daughter the sizing was good from about 8 weeks onward. She is 15 months old now, and these nappies will fit for some time yet. The draw back is the absorbency of the inserts. We use one cotton, and one bamboo per nappy and it works every time.
Good value compared to disposables or other MCNs
Need to buy extra inserts
My Little Ripple Modern Cloth Nappies Review
I'd been using disposable nappies until one day that I decided to stop because it's costing too much money. And a friend of mine highly recommended this My Little Ripple reusable nappies. I purchased 10 from eBay to try and it's just wonderful. Very absorbent, the inserts are very thick, the nappies are very soft. And the colours are beautiful. The actual colours look nicer than the pictures on eBay. Then I purchased my second lot from their website which is cheaper. (It has saved me so much money for a single income family.) And the communicat...ions are great, responding to questions very fast. They also have a Facebook Page where you can ask questions. I think they've done a great job. I heard the newly improved design is better for newborns. But I haven't got a newborn to try it. The quality is very good. very economical. very soft.
This is my first experience with cloth nappies so nothing to compare them to, but I really like these nappies. I didn't want to use cloth nappies but I am attempting early potty training and everything I read said that it is much easier if you use cloth nappies. So I was reluctant but I love them! I don't bother to fit the microfibre liner into the nappy pocket - I just sit it on top and that way I can usually use the outer for quite a while and just replace the liner. They rarely leak but I change them frequently and I use a disposable at ni...ght time. My baby has not had any nappy rash (well, occasionally, but not as a result of using these nappies). I have been using them consistently for almost 5 months and I would never go back to disposables. Inexpensive (10 outers and 20 inners for about $55), great cost saving on disposables, easy to wash. Leak if not changed frequently enough.
Great and Cheap!!
Couldn't believe my luck when I found these MCN's on eBay..... 10 for just under $40!! Bargain!!
I couldn't use these nappies for the first few weeks, as my baby's legs were too thin! But now we're in the full swing of things, I will never touch another disposable again!! They look so cute on my bubs bottom. No leaks! They fit really well, and aren't too bulky!! I add 1 bamboo booster (also bought from eBay!) and a pilcher and that does him the whole night time (12 hours)!! And they wash up brilliant every time!! They are still as white as when I bought them!
So pleased with these, I have just ordered my second batch!! :D
Reliable, easy to use, inexpensive!!
They didn't fit my newborn (that could be just me though!)
Affordable and effective cloth nappy
I bought 20 of these cloth nappies online for approx $5 each. They are a pocket nappy with a toweling insert. They are "one size" so have poppers to snap the front of the nappy into different sizes. I have been using them from about 4 months - in theory they can be used from birth but I think they are really a bit too big for the first couple of months. My baby is now 9 months old and I have found they start to leak with a big wee so I have additional inserts. With two inserts in the nappy they work very well with no leaks. I do not think they ...would work overnight (leaks) so I used disposables overnight and cloth during the day. They need to be washed approx 6 times when first purchased to ensure proper absorption. They dry very fast (overnight in front of the heater). Overall extremely happy with this nappy, especially for the price! Inexpensive, easy to use, fast drying, nice fabric and colours, look very nice on bub!
Cheap and not so good!
Bought these to give them a go as much cheaper, but you get what you pay for! Definitely not OSFM. Still no good at 7kg - no use as leak around the legs which don't fit.
Nothing much. Will try again when he's bigger. Can always use insert as another cleaning cloth...
Don't fit well
These are definitely not OSFM, my bubs is 2.5months and still doesn't fit in them. I've been using the inserts inside another brand OSFM that have fit him since he was 7lb.
on the plus side the inserts last about 3hrs which is what I expected for the price i paid for these nappies.
Ok absorbency of the inserts
Not OSFM - more like a Medium to Large size.
Questions & Answers
We are expecting and are thinking of using these nappies but on recieving 1 as a sample we noticed that it states on the tag that rash creams, powders etc. shouldnt be used. Would appreciate any feedback from current users as to how they negotiated this???? Cheers
Hello Zozfozzle, although I don't use MCN yet (I have been researching them), and from what I have read you can use flushable or reusable liners with your MCN. I hope this helps.
Hi Zozfozzle, I've been using MCN for18mths now and have found that liners are the best way around Nappy Rash Cream. The problem with the cream is that it's made to form a barrier between bubs bottom and the wee/poo, and so it does the same thing on the nappy and as it builds up, prevents the wee being absorbed. As CJ15 mentioned, you can get flushable or reusable - the flushable are thinner and it's great to be able to throw the poop down the loo with the liner, but I've found that a little cream sometimes seems to be able to make it's way through, and once the cream's on the nappy it's near impossible to get off, so I've been using reusable microfleece liners when I use cream, they are thicker and hold the cream - obviously the cream will stick to the liner though, just like it does to the nappy, so eventually you'll have to buy more liners, but they're much cheaper than new nappies :)
