Hi All,

I am pregnant and due at the end of March. Used cloth with my ds from about 8 months (wish I had started using them earler though!!) so the nappies I have (Motherease Sandy's) will def. be too big for a newborn. I am therefore going to need to invest in some in a smaller size, but for at least the first couple of weeks plan to use eco-friendly disposables.

Does anyone have any recommendations of brands / websites I can visit to order some? Teso's used to sell Nature Baby disposables but seem to have stopped!

Any help would be greatly appreciated

another moltex fan - found better absorbancy than nature boy and girl and very good fit - they don't use any bleach in the making of them either. i get mine from 'spirit of nature'. they do have a website you could google.

another vote for moltex!!! i'm a part time clothie user (Fuzzis) so use moltex when we need sposies... i get them from
Naturebotts cheapest on the web if you buy in bulk... and very nice they are too, on the phone...

Moltex are great but why not use cloth from the start? DS and DD went into cloth straight away and it was fine.

Must confess to having a very helpful DH though and with 2 in nappies the y produce (and still do!) quite a bit of washing.

I have used Moltex too! Great disposable nappies, much better than nature boy/girl. I think it is easier to get your head around the initial transition of having a baby if you use eco disposables for the first couple of weeks. Once you feel happy then you can start with washables. Thats what I did with dd1 and I am about to do the same when I have dd2 in March.

I've also been recommended Moltex by a friend and will try them when baby arrives! KerryJ - to go off at a tangent - why aren't you on our March thread?? You'd be very welcome - I'm also due at the end of March

I have used Little Green Earthlets nappies 'Mother Ease' since my boy was born, he is now 21 months and they are wonderful.
They have poppers to do them up and a waterproof cover over the top to keep the clothes dry. You have a disposable paper lining for the poop, which you can chuck down the loo. We put the wet nappies in a nappy pail with tea trea oil, and only do a wash every 2 days. When he was born we did a couple a day, as he got through about ten nappies.
I CANNOT rave about them enough.
Cost about £250-300 for a set, and about a tenner for a roll of disposable paper...
