I have plain old motherease one size- some plain, some organic cotten and a few bamboo, i also have some terry squares and a few nippa bamboo nappies with plenty of bamboo boosters for nights.
they are not the most popular brand but they are so reliable and now being used on the 4th clothe bummed of our 5 DC.
never failed me-’ explosion in a curry factory’ poo and all!!!
I would like to try some fancier ones for night as they do leak a little for DD (age 2) if i dont change her first thing, once she has done a morning wee they do wick.

sooo, what nappies do you have in your stash, which are your favourite and why??
thanks ladies and gents.

Ours are all shaped nappies (except for a few old terries and prefolds for emergencies). We have a good stash of bambinex bamboo Velcro and little lamb bamboo and cotton Velcro ones, then we have half a dozen poppered Motherease Sandies, 3 one life birth to potty poppered nappies and about 8 cotton (not Terry) german velcro nappies which were given to me by a (young) friend who used them on her two kids, having had them used on her! We also have one tots bots Flexitot, which I love for nightime.

We have a mixture of Totsbots and Nannie Cool fleece wraps for daytime use, and motherease and onelife PUL wraps for nightime. I had an extra small Little Lambs wrap when she was first born, but that only lasted her about a fortnight!

The Bambinex were the only ones we bought new - all the little lambs were bought secondhand, and all the others were given to us.

These are just our size ones, btw; we have a large stash of size 2s which I haven’t sorted through yet!

For night time, have you tried folding 2 of the terry squares together? That always worked for me, and for super comfort and efficiency, especially overnight, try a wool soaker instead of PUL wrap. They REALLY work, are much cooler than any other cover, and allow the nappy underneath to start to dry between wettings, so the nappy lasts longer.

I never really looked at our nappies as being a stash? Likewise with slings/wraps etc. I tend to view stash as referring to something that I have a large and not completely necessary collection of. Hmm yarn stash seems the appropriate example here wink
We haven’t needed nappies for around 12 months now as our littlest stopped using them at around 20 months but we had basically the same nappies for all three youngest. These were a large collection of muslins with tots bots wraps for when they were tiny, then when they were a couple of months old prefolds with motherease wraps for daytime and tots bots bamboo with the same motherease wraps for night time. When they started to become much heavier wetters at night I added a generic booster pad.

Dare I chip in <giggle>

If I remember correctly, you are already using wool so if it is wicking you need more absorbency.  If you want something fancy, I’d go with a preloved weenotions nn or holden’s landing bedbug.  Holden’s landing have both a toddler & junior size so with those you could guarantee they will fir for a while.  The bedbug+ has even more absorbency.

i do love the wnnn but i found that they needed stripping all the time so i sold them on the tree..
are holdens landing nn the same as wnnn or different?
I dont use wool at night, just in the day, maybe i should use wool at night with her, i just thought she would get too hot in her growbag with the wool underneath.
thanks for all of your comments

Wool is actually less sweaty than PUL.  Wool is breathable (like cotton) so it is warm in the winter & cool in the summer.  I use it all year round (as do lots on the tree) but stick with shorties or soakers in the warmer months.  At the moment (with the warmer weather we are having), I put a long sleeved top with boardies (short longies) and socks under a 2.5 tog sleeping bag & a blanket.  In the summer, I use a short sleeve nightie or top with socks & shorties or soaker over a summer weight sleeping bag.

The wool will allow some of the moisture to evaporate so will probably solve your wicking problem.

I never had a problem with wnnn when we used them.  Do you use liquid or powder when washing your nappies?  What dose do you use?  Do you do an extra rinse at the end of the washing cycle?

Holden’s landing are similar to WNNN in absorbency but are made with different core material.

I used to have bum genius organics but have swapped them for pop ins and now also easy fits (tots bots) i have to say easy fits (i have the story pack amongst others) get by far the best fit with the applix, are easy to dry, easily boosted (one of my twins is a heavy wetter) and are sooo cute. I wished i had discovered them sooner!
