The great cloth nappy experiment, has been a success! But...wow! Little did I realise, when we first considered switching to cloth nappies, that there was so much learning to be done! Firstly I would like to thank you all, especially "TwinkleToes", for all your invaluable advice. It was so wonderful to get tonnes of top tips from "veteran" cloth users!
I have spent what seems like hours, researching cloth nappies online, over the last few weeks. There was so much to take in; sifting through and picking out the nuggets (no pun intended)! Overflowing with information, I was eager to tell everyone all I had been learning...suffice it to say that now, everyone is so over hearing about poopy nappies!
My ever-so-patient hubby, has been driven mad with me talking nappies; last time I approached him, he innocently gave me the fork he was holding, turned around, and said "Now stab me as hard as you can!" So, since I can no longer bore my family with nappy talk...I am letting loose on you dear ladies! ;)
So, at present we are using TotsBots EasyFit All-In-Ones, with an additional fleece liner. They are brilliant, especially for novices like me, as they are so easy to use! And as for washing all I have to do is remember to stick the velcro tabs back and throw it in the machine! Drying takes a while longer, as drying outside is not possible at this time of year, and I don't want to use the tumble drier.
Even though my hubby no longer wants to discuss: bamboo vs microfibre, all-in-ones vs pocket style or boosters and flushable liners...he has kindly agreed to me purchasing a half-a-dozen more cloth nappies for Meg! All of which will save us money in the long run! Hooray! I think Meg herself will be delighted, as I'm sure they feel a lot nicer on her little tushie!
