:idea: flower! congrats on the twins! i'd imagine u should be able to get fluff small enough for them, there is alot of newborn fluff about so worth checking the classifieds section on here. i intend to use cloth on this little man, he'll be born at 38 weeks and well, thinking of using my left over icky sposies in hospital then home to a nice clothed bum! am sure lots of ladies will follow to come give u some advice.x

and good on u for trying cloth with twins too :wine:

I am a mummy to twins! I cloth nappied them from birth (they were born at 38 weeks :wink: ) and yes, there are nappies small enough!

My faves were:
XS Motherease Sandys nappies
Diddy diapers by Nature babies

These 2 brands I found were nice and small and importantly, inexpensive to buy (you can get them really cheaply pre-loved too :wink: )

I used motherease Rikki wraps over them and found them to work perfectly for us.

My twin girls just turned 3 the other week and are now out of nappies during the day! However, fell free to ask away if you think I can be of use in any way

:idea: Welcome to CNT. As Jan said XS sandies and Diddy diapers are good as are size 0 Bimbles and bambeasies. I also used 40cm bamboo terry squares on my DD when she was born (she weighed about 6lb12). XS Fuzzi Bunz will probably work well too.

Hi, Twins ROCK!!!!!

Mine are 11 months now, I didnt start using cloth until they were about 3 months old. They were 8 weeks early so still tiny then.

I loved natures babies diddy diapers, x-small fuzzis were brilliant, I found bimbles were outgrown quickly and not worth the money in the long term,

There's probably more but I've got double hungry screams happening, I'll post more later

My DD was little at 5lbs 14oz (37 weeks) and we used XS sandies, XS thirsties, diddy diapers and preemie prefolds :)

Congrats and good luck!! :pregnant: :wine: :hug:

Hi :idea:

My ds was a big 'un (9lb 4), but i used muslins and PUL wraps from day 1... found this worked really well for newborn since they dry so quickly. Mine are 80cm i think, and i have to fold them down to make them small enough, so if you were to go for this option then you'd probably want smaller ones.

I'm still using muslins on her (2 weeks old now), but more as a backup option as she fits into her itti bitti's so these are now our preferred option.
