    Flat cloth nappies

    I use modern cloth nappies on my son and really like them, but they take a while to dry in this humidity. I would like to get some of the old school, flat nappies (like the ones our mums used) because they're easier to clean and dry. I've read on older posts you can get them at wet markets. Has anyone recently bought some? Where? And approx how much are they?

    TIA!

    Thanks for the fast reply! Do you like bumwear? I looked at them but didn't end up buying any. For my son we mainly use baby beehinds and fuzzibunz. BBH are great, but take 2 days to dry!

    What is 'sin' and mys'? I'm hoping to find some flat nappies this weekend.

    Fuzzibunz are my favourite pocket nappies. Because they have two rows of snaps, one for legs and one for tummy, you can adjust the size to fit your baby very well. My son has chunky thighs but a small waist, and with almost every other nappy he gets red lines on his legs. But with fuzzibunz he gets a perfect fit.

    And the colour selection of fuzzibunz is great!

    I bought them online from the US. I think you can buy them here, one of my mother's friends loved our modern cloth nappies and went searching for some for her daughter. But I don't know where. I think you can gt them in Macau too.

    For a newborn, you need a LOT!!! They pee and poop all the time. You'd probably need about 14-16 per day. For a newborn it's probably easier to use prefolds or flats, since you'll be changing them so much and doing so much washing, they dry faster. Slightly more work to get on but easier in the end, and you could use them for longer, unlike sized newborn fuzzibunz.

    HTH.
