posting for a friend.<br><br>
when the baby is about 6 weeks old she'll be moving back to west africa & wants to take resusable nappies with her. priorities are durability, price & flexibility for use across age groups.<br><br>
i thought of mother-ease one size or prefolds. any other thoughts?

Is she going to be handwashing? If yes, then I'd say flats, no question.

I was going to say the same thing. Flats with some good covers would probably be the easiest to wash.

flats w/ the new thirsties covers <a href="https://www.thirstiesstore.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=25" target="_blank">https://www.thirstiesstore.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=25</a><br><br>
she could also use 100% cotton flannel recieving blankets like these <a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/191-6404089-6576237?asin=B00208KNFC&AFID=Performics_Google%20Product%20Listing%20Ads&LNM=Primary&ref=tgt_adv_XASD0001" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...t_adv_XASD0001</a> as flats if she wants cute prints

i wondered about hand-washing too. honestly if i had to hand wash diapers i would use flats and i would EC from birth (of course i do that already <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">). seriously, by 6 months of age most EC babies do most of their pooping in the potty (or appropriate receptacle/location) which is going to greatly minimize her need for scrubbing and sanitizing. and unless she's going somewhere that would be an embarrassing or messy situation if the baby was wet, i wouldn't worry about covers at all. just a couple of PUL covers that dry quickly and are easy to wipe down.
