my friend got me two cloth nappies, 2 plastic pants, and a set of four liners. each time I wore the nappy had three liners in it making them super thick and really absorbant. I wet for a while before they leaked, heavy wettings too.
I didn't mess at all, I didn't want to mess in new cloth nappies I hear they can be a pain to clean. but I did use a disposable with the plastic pants while waiting for the first wash and dry of the nappies. these all are adorable and held up super well, I don't think ill be using disposables anymore once my current stash of them is gone.
