Terry nappies anyone?

Whatever you like, really, knock yourself out... I'm not the boss of you.

Ok, I just started hunting them down ....

Thank you for the tip, Christine, I just went on the website and seem to be in luck.

I will be back with a few stupid questions shortly I suppose ....

Just got a set with everything I need!

I decided to start with DS1 as I have lots of nappies I need to use up for DS2 and I don't really want to give them away.

Will still use normal wetwipes though :oops:

Marie,
Glad you found some.

I switched R onto cloth nappies at 4 months and I really don't think he noticed the difference.

I still use a pampers at night but he started sleeping through this week so I may be brave and use a cloth nappy at night (have got a superabsorbent bamboozle and a babybeehind for night time which i really should use!)

I use normal wipes too...don't feel bad...every little bit helps!

Am thinking about switching to washable breast pads now as I hardly ever leak...anybody got any recommendations for these?

Yes I do use a Fuzzi at night - but with a microfleece booster and a bamboo terry towel to give the additional absorbency needed for night. Its a bit of a leap of faith but once you swap to a reusable at night, you realise that its all OK! I stayed with disposables for night-time for ages but the bamboo is the key!

Ooooh - I love cloth nappies!

We used to have so many explosive accidents with disposables (only had to cut him out of a body once tho' :oops: ), and I felt SO awful with the amount going into the rubbish bin...

We use Motherease one size, which were pretty big on Pooks to start off with, but now are fine. I've also got a load of bamboozles size 2 which I'm looking forward to using when he's larger.

I'm trying to convert a friend into using reusables too. She was keen before her baby was born, but now thinks it would be too much of a faff, which I have to say I worried about too before I started, but now I'd never go back!

I just informed DH that I intend to use cloth nappies HAHAHA it nearly made me a widow he choked so much!!! :D

I had two exploded nappies again today with DS2 after changing him about 15 times - he has a little bug and it a bit loose at both ends the poor little thing. It really annoys me as I end up washing pooey stuff anyway.

BTW does anyone else notice that they can through up a full feed and still smile at you? Or are my boys just weird????

Hope to get my stuff in the next couple of weeks, the post strikes is about to ruin DS1's birthday :(

Hi,

We've been using cloth for a couple of months now.
I have lots of different types, but my favourite quick drying ones are Tots Bots Fluffles, they are lovely and soft too!
Wraps I love are Nature Babies, and Wee Notions.
At night we use Ella House Bum Huggers but they are really slow to dry without a dryer. Very very absorbant though.

Clothes

Postby Sheela » 11 Oct 2007, 10:04

Hi.....I have just finished a trial of cloth nappies.....and they were fine to use....however I couldn't get any of my LO's clothes on.....even going up a size....non of the jeans and things like that.....I used tots bots mostly....which seemed to work best....but they were HUGE (he's a big lad too).....anyone got tips for a less bulky style of cloth nappy....as I too am feeling terrible about the waste!

Thanks

Hi there,
I know what you mean about cotton nappies being too bulky - we started with them around 4 months, and I felt like they were preventing MM rolling and wiggling around as she was used to and, yes, also hard to get clothes on!
I've found that pocket systems are less bulky and quicker to dry - BumGenius are our favourite - they're really not much bulkier than a paper nappy. Though we do use some 2-part systems when we're going at home for a few hours, just because we have them, really.
Different things suit different folk - we haven't as yet really got on with Wanderoos or Swaddlebees, but some people love 'em!
HTH!
