Reviews - Modern Cloth Nappies

Here's what people are saying about our nappies!

  • Wow - love these nappies. The V2's have everything on my nappy 'wishlist' - a double row of snaps, double gussets and small gathers on the leg elastics (for amazing containment), top and bottom pockets, versatile and absorbent inserts and beautiful prints. They fit my skinnie minnie perfectly. The V1's are amazingly absorbent and have been our best performing night nappies so far - no leaks even on a night my son wanted to nurse 4 times during the night!! Eunica's customer service is second to none - she has been absolutely amazing. She patiently and thoroughly answered my multitude of questions about the products. THANK YOU! - Rebecca R.
  • Our first day in the trials and we were so impressed how they held up! Bub decided to do an extra long nap and we were leak free! The inserts are so luxuriously soft and the quality of the cover is excellent. I'm just disappointed I didn't find Alcmena sooner! - Tse-Ling W. 
  • Loved ordering from this website! Service was so lovely and the follow up emails were comforting to receive knowing that communication with vendor would be easy! Loved the hand written note with product as well! - Maddison S. 
  • Received my nappies super quick. Love the quality and Eunica was amazing at answering my questions and helping me order some more. Very excited customer! - Rachel D. 
  • These are great nappies! I will be buying more! - Kylie H. 
  • Perfect Fit - 10 out of 10!! We’ve been using cloth for a while now and it has been a mission to find a good quality nappy cover to fit our skinny toddler. We have been able to get the perfect fit straight away with the Alcmena v2 covers. No leaks around the legs and always able to get right fit first time. I highly recommend these covers for prefold users as the covers easily hold the prefolds in place. Will be buying more of these gorgeous prints!!! - Andrea R. 
  • Absolutely loving the fit, look and absorbency of our new Star Wars nappies. Always a bit of a dispute who changes him first after we have washed -Husband is an imperial man, where as I’m more of a rebels gal. Definitely our favourite nappies in our stash. Also must mention customer service is phenomenal- was given some great support and advice on newborn fits that made all the difference. Thanks again!! Belinda V.
  • These are just fab nappies. They are my go-to gift for people who are thinking about using cloth as the are gorgeous, so easy to use and fit well. We've used the V1, V2, wet bags and swim nappy and the quality on all these products has been fab. I also love that they are delivered plastic free - beautiful wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string. These are certainly a few of my favourite things! - Nicole D. 
  • Can't go wrong with these nappies! Really enjoy using the OSFM AI2. The inserts are super absorbent and the double gussets keep it all at bay! 2 inserts mean a little more assembly but a quicker drying more absorbant nappy - 2 very important elements. The inserts snap together and the snap into the cover at the front so works well positioning wise for both girls and boys. The fabrics and workmanship are great quality and the prints are super cute to boot. - Phoebe L. 
  • I am very excited to say we used the nappy on my 3yo as night nappy with one booster and no leaks. Looks like I’ll be grabbing a few more!!! - Winnie L. 
  • I used prefolds and this is the best cover I have come across, it suits all my needs- multi fit, snaps, double gussets, cute unisex prints and something very rare- lined/double waterproof layers! Eunica is an amazing communicator and assisted me promptly and efficiently. - Erin E.
  • Love the nappy! The insert (I have only used one for days) is super absorbent and the covers give a great fit. No leaks! Added bonus is the gumnut print is gorgeous :-) - Kate T. 
  • Just wanted to tell you how much your nappies have been a life saver to us! I put disposables on [my son] for ease and less risk of spreading and he just scratched and scratched at them. So I put him in yours and ever since, he's stopped scratching there! It's actually giving him time to heal! - Jen B. 
  • Bought this nappy for my 18 month old heavy wetter and they last and last. I use both inserts and they're fine even for him sleeping on his tummy during the day. Might even be enough for a normal wetting bub for nights. Using both inserts makes the nappy very thick which may cause a problem on a chubby bubba but no problems for us - Caroline R. 
  • I received my nappies within two days of ordering! I was amazed! I absolutely love them, they fit my little(4kg 8 week old) man perfectly and we haven’t had one leak or mishap yet! Thanks to those double gussets! No more multiple day and night changes for us thanks to contained explosions! He seems to love them too, they don’t affect his mobility at all which I was surprised by as others I have purchased did! Amazing communication, answered within a few short hours of a query I had! Definitely one happy customer and one happy baby! - Rachael W. 
  • We bought one of the v2.0 OSFM nappies and it is stunning. The waterproof PUL is super easy to clean, the bamboo inserts are super thirsty and the pattern is gorgeous. I get lots of comments from other parents about this nappy. The main insert is very thick and does take a decent amount of time to dry, particularly in the elastic area, but it contours nicely around baby to give a nice fit. I think I'm going to have to invest in a few more of these!! - Alyce M.
  • These nappies are just gorgeous and of wonderful quality! The liners are the softest and most luxurious of all the MCN’s I have purchased to trial. Customer service has also been a stand out. I can’t wait to increase my Alcmena stash once baby arrives in a few months.  - Rita B
  • [On our v2.0 nappies] I recently bought a couple of the new style of nappies and I’m loving them! They dry quicker than the older style of shell which will be a bonus through winter! The fit is just as good as the older style, and the new inserts are quite absorbent. Pairing with the booster it makes a suitable night nappy. And adventure time! #punchayobuns - Erin H. 
  • Absolutely love my night bundle. Covers are great patterns and super absorbant for overnight. Love 😊 - Kirsty S.
  • Overall I was quite pleased with these nappies. They are very absorbent, don't have heaps of fiddly snaps to keep the inserts in place, a great fit for my chunky 8mth old and the covers dry super quick. The only thing I do wish, is that I had purchased extra inserts as for me, they took a longer time to dry than the rest of my stash. - Emma P. 
  • Easy to buy, arrived quickly and the items are top quality. Also - so very cute! Can’t wait for my little ones to grow so I can try them out! - Hope B.
  • Great quality and excellent absorbency. Highly recommend! - Naomi H.
  • Excellent quality, good size and gorgeous prints. Delivery was quick and efficient. I’ll definitely be purchasing again in the future. - Kristen T.
  • I could not believe how good the quality was! They are gorgeous and easily adjustable to any size. They are super absorbent and come with extra padding which was a bonus! Way better than others I’ve used. - Laura G. 
  • Really went above and beyond in relation to customer service assisting with patterns in stock and answering questions re mcn. Products speak for themselves- high quality and well made. Thank you!! - Belinda V.
  • Postage, communication and product are all wonderful. I will definitely be purchasing again.- Anna M. 
  • Quick postage, lovely packaging, and the nappies feel excellent. So far great absorbency and easy to use. - Jacqueline D. 
  • Gorgeous nappies! Great for us at night and love the wipeable covers. The inserts are super soft as well. Customer service was also great. Only thing that would be good would be two snaps rather than one on the cover for snapping in inserts. This would allow me to better mix and match inserts since most brands use a double snap. It would also help the insert stay in place better on a wiggly bub. Definitely one of our favourite nappies though! - Kathryn M.
  • We ordered the whole gumtree cloth nappy set and Are absolutely in love! Not only is the design amazing, the cloth nappy is super absorbent. - Naomi C. 
  • I recently purchased this bundle while it was on sale and I love all the items! The PUL feels amazing, everything seems to be great quality and the value for money is awesome! As the swim nappies are just the normal nappy without any inserts, I have kept one as a swim nappy and will use the other as a normal nappy. The change mats are plenty big enough for my 14 month old and have so far been used as a splash mat at other people's houses while eating, protection from a sudden downpour while out walking and a change mat while out and about. The nappy bags are better than the Bambooty ones I already had, holding more nappies, wetness and smells. They have two pockets, and are cheaper than most of the other ones out there. I'm very pleased I bought this bundle! - Jemma D.
  • A friend recommended Alcmena MCNs to me and I soon found myself online & purchased a trial pack. I adore the Gumtree print & I found the nappy to be super absorbent which is great for my heavy wetter. The fit is also very trim & snug. I must also mention the attention to detail with the packaging and personalised hand written note - another reason to support small business. One very happy customer over here! - Kirstin H.
  • Really impressed with these nappies! Lovely and thick inserts without being too bulky. I have a long skinny 4month old and they fit him well. The inserts dry quite well similar to other bamboo ones I have. Usually 2-3 days hanging from the roof over a heater vent (Melbourne winter) The wetbag also holds up really well, no wetness coming through. So pretty! I love the designs, have recommended them and would purchase again. 😊 - Erin H.
  • [On our v1.0 nappies] Super quick shipping which is always great, especially for fluff mail! I purchased for my big 11 month old son (12kgs). I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my package to see that they were on the larger size of the OSFM. In all other OSFM my boy is on the largest setting. But with Alcmena he is only on the 2nd biggest as a day nappy and the biggest if I have the night booster and still have lots of growth! They are very absorbent and I easily get up to 2-4hrs in the day and 12+ hrs overnight with the night booster. - Kailee S.
  • [On our v1.0 nappies] Amazing quality nappies! Delivered beautiful and super quick! So so so absorbent and the material is so soft! The designs are just gorgeous too! The shell does take a little longer to dry as it is bamboo lined but not an issue as I have three of these gorgeous nappies! Recommend highly! - Alana G.
