  1. Hello, just ordered some snugglybums pocket AIO (Cape Town based company). Have you tried those?

  2. Hi Isabelle - Snugglybum review coming up shortly. :-)

  3. Loving the info on the cloth nappies! Am ordering an Alva bamboo nappy because it is half the price of the other pocket nappies but would love to hear your exp with these?

    1. Have a look at my Snugglybum review - they are rebranded Alvas. I prefer the bamboo version vs the regular Alvas - they are trimmer and more absorbent and you get two inserts with each nappy. Do note that since its a natural fibre it will feel wet against baby's skin.

    2. Hi Marisa, thanks for that ...very helpful :) After reading your blogs and nappy size ups etc, I think the Bam+Boo nappies will suit us well but we gonna have to save up as we go for those, how big a fluff stash should I be building if I have a 2 year old little girl in nappies and a 5 month old chunky baby boy?

    3. I would say you'd need at least 30 for every other day washing with two kids using the nappies. If you're willing to wash every day I think you could get away with 24 or so, bearing in mind you'll get more wear & tear on your nappies.

  4. Could you write a blog post about using cloth nappies overnight?
    I'm really struggling to find a workable solution for overnight - my son is an extremely heavy wetter and I've tried every combination I can think of, but nothing works. Even fleece soakers make no difference whatsoever.

    1. Michelle you're in luck! I am currently working on a post about overnight cloth diapering. Watch this space in the course of the next week or so.

  5. Hey, inspired by you and this enormously helpful blog, I've started my own mini-series. Would love it if you could pop a link up!

  6. Nice one, Marisa. Thank you for writing articles about diapering. It is very useful blog for all mothers who are taking care of their infants. I'll let you know more topics on which you can write articles related to diapers. Such as washing diapers with detergent that don't leave residue. Just a vague thought. But I'll come up with something better.

  7. Hi, thanks for your blog, it's great! I've been using Efa for the past 7 months, I am pretty sure they are a rebrand of the Alva bamboo nappies. I found they leak quite a bit, I think I will try the Hippie Safari over night solution, as you suggested. What are you favourite AI2 or pocket nappy? Thanks! Lorien

  8. Hi Marissa

    Congrats on a blog well done! I've completely fallen in love with cloth diapering due to your practical and fun reviews. I was wondering whether you could offer some advice on efa nappies? Really striving for an affordable, quality South African company to support. Please help (",)

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    Kind Regards

  9. New to cloth nappies...with my 3rd child due in August. I always come check your reviews before I contemplate buying a nappy. Love your blog! My stash is still small, but getting there :)

  11. Hello
    The cloth diapers are really great. I use them for my baby and baby feel comfortable with it. But sometime baby is affected by rashes. I am not sure is it caused by wearing the cloth diaper. Thanks

  15. I have found your blog so helpful and encouraging as a soon-to-be-mom! My one question for you: If you could afford ANY nappy, what brand/style would you choose? And what is your absolute favourite? Would love to know your personal best!

    1. If money was no object, I would have a very extensive WAHM collection I think. :-)

  16. I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that very useful.

  17. Hi
    I'm thinking about using cloth nappies with my first baby due in December, I read you mention Cherub liners for in the nappies, they are much cheaper than the flushable ones but I was wondering how you dispose of them and any poop that is on them? Do you rinse them before binning them? Or just put them in a bin with a liner? Many thanks

  18. very nice and useful Information Thanks For Sharing.
