Cheapest place to buy Bamboo terries? Also which Prefolds?

Postby Rufies mama » Thu Dec 22, 2011 11:13 pm

Hi, I've been looking at some bamboo terries to bulk up my newborn stash (I'll probably have a whopper so don't want to waste too much on NB fitteds that he/she will be out of in a week!)

Where have you found is the cheapest place to buy bamboo terries?

Also, I'm interested in trying prefolds. Which ones are the best in your opinion? I might try making some too, anyone have a pattern?

Thanks for any help you can give, :thumbsup:

I bought bamboo terries from an ebay seller recently and was really pleased with them. They were the cheapest I could find at the time and she did me a deal on postage for a pack of 10. They were Nature Babies nappies, good quality and arrived fast :D

ETA: I just checked and she charged me 5.50 for postage on a pack of 10, which she had listed specifically for me.

Hi! :wave:

I bought bamboo terry nappies from here; http://www.realterrynappies.co.uk/terry ... ix-2-p.asp, definitely the cheapest I have found.

I love bamboo they are so soft and wash really well, they do take a long time to dry though and the only thing I really don't like about them is they do not keep their shape. I washed mine twice before using (which wasn't enough btw) and they were no longer square. This may not matter if you chose to pad fold them but I find it annoying for folding otherwise. I think if you are planning to use them for newborn to avoid tiny fitteds you'd be fine with normal terries which are much cheaper.
I use bummis prefolds and think they are great, really soft and squishy, wash and dry really easily and work really well nippa'd.
Hope that helps. :thumbsup:

They are lovely and soft and look great on as much slimmer than an ordinary terry, they do stay soft too. You can still fold them but it is annoying! I have only had their bamboo terries but bought from else where until I found them there, much cheaper! :thumbsup:

folding for night times, was recommended to me that 2 folded together with a wool cover would do us, and since my LO sleeps on his side, most other nappies have been leaking. These should cover the sides much better, I hope! I used organic cotton terries on my DS1 but found them very bulky, so am looking forward to these.
