Just wondering if any one has decided whether to use re-useable nappies or not. I am going for bamboo nappies and just looking from ideas from anyone else?

Hi Mrs. T. I have been trying to get/do a bit of research on these too. Two brand which seem good are Bambino Mio and Little Comfort. The big difference to me seems to be that the Bambino Mio napppies have to be folded whereas the Little Comfort ones are pre-folded. Here are the links and I would love to hear from anybody who has used or is using either!!

Considering this just want to talk to someone who has actually used them first! I am going to try out some freebies a colleague is giving me who works in the Environment area. Apparently you have to wash these ones five times first so they have full absorbency! There was a segment on this on TV3 this morning. The lady on was promoting her products:

I really want to use these and have posted about this here before. There are a lot of mums on magic mum that use them and also lots of reusables for sale. I thought the bambino mio ones were supposed to be good but seemingly they are not great. Also the advice the mums on mm gave was that each baby is different and it is worth getting an assortment of nappies to try first before choosing which ones you stick with. Also i believe you may end up using different cloth nappies for day and for night or for boy or girl !!
