Just wondering if there are any clothies out there?
Would love to hear what nappies you are using and what babycare products you are using considering their impact on the absorbency of your nappies?
I choose to use disposal nappies for the convenience. I mainly use Babylove and Huggies however have tried other brands. I usually buy what's on special and purchase a large number of nappies in bulk. I haven't used cloth nappies but I've seen various types which look pretty good. A mother at my mothers group uses these cloth nappies that have a velcro front and you insert a folded cloth nappy inside for absorbancy. I can't remeber the brand however she raves about them.
i too use disposable nappies. I've tried babylove, snugglers and huggies. But i think the best for us is huggies. babylove is okay but i've encountered leakage several times before when i used snugglers. huggies may be more expensive but the quality is worth it. downside though to using disposables is the incidence of nappy rash. my little girl experienced a bad case of it a few days ago, tried sudocreme and bepanthen for it but only got great results with daktozin. hope this helps!
I used huggies before switching to cloth. I was pretty happy with them, but love the look of cloth nappies. Some of them a really beautiful.
I recently bought a pack of babylove to keep at with family in Brisbane and as soon as my son weed it all poured out the side! I've had to send them back to babylove for checking!
I am all for disposables. Any brand that is the best value, biggest amount for the chapest price. They are never on long enough to cause problems. I have never had any dramas with nappy rash as I give bub 2 baths a day and always apply lotion to the nappy area.
If you google 'cloth nappies' there are heaps of sites and info available. there are also some brands displayed at baby expos and there are ones you can get in really cute animal prints, they are pretty expensive and I'm not sure how often you need to replace them. I use disposable nappies usually Huggies as they are the only ones that get him through the night. I use baby love sometimes but have to go a size up as he pees through the size he should be in (he's 5 months) . Call me lazy but I also don't enjoy washing and soaking.
There is a whole world of cloth out there.
You don't soak cloth nappies anymore. They are really easy to use.
I love mine and they last years. So you spend $300-$600 for a basic set up and that's it to toilet training.
I used cloth for my first 2 kids 10 years ago because I was shamed into it by my sister and mother. They werent the ones who had to do all the washing though! Also I found they were a lot more prone to nappy rash problems. I have just had my 3rd baby and am doing it my way all the way this time, which means huggies disposables. She is 3 months old now and has not had one little bit of nappy rash at all. JMO!
That's great sanctuary.
I used huggies for about 7 1/2 months also with no rash. I've been using cloth now for 4months and still no nappy rash thank goodness. I don't use any creams either, so my DS must just have a tough butt.. which is strange considering he has VERY sensitive skin and eczema.
I would of loved to use cloth nappies but me and cloth only lasted a couple of weeks cause it couldn't stay on my son no matter what i did so i ended up using disposibles it was easier and in the long run would of saved alot of money in my pocket. but my sister use cloth throu all her children and she use no pins nothing (I don't know how she did it mine fell to bit's everytime). but now they make them so much easier. It looked so cute seeing all the cloth nappies linning up on the washing line you surly knew she had a baby in the house
Isn't it lovely when you wash those first baby items (before you have the baby) and they are all hanging on the line. Got me all goey inside when I did it.
the best clothnappes are happy hainies, size medium last for around 10 months, my little one used those for over one year, you should be ok with around 8-10 nappies when you wash daily, washing with cold water (soaking before) and drying without dryer saves you in this time around 400 dollars or more. the nappies and inserts dry very fast, with good weather without few hours. for the first 2-3 months its better to use disposalable, clothnappies wouldnt let save you much. but when you plan to have 2 or more kids, you could start from the beginning with clothnappies, this would makes savings again.
lolak, I agree on some of your points, but 8-10 nappies won't be enough (unless you only change bub's 3 times a day, in which case you are washing only 3-5 nappies in a whole load of washing.
I count on 6-7 nappies per day, then 1 days worth ready to go, one on the line and one either waiting to be washed, or spare. So a minimum of 18 nappies, and then add on for wet/cold days when they don't dry (plus at least 3 night nappies as they take much longer to dry).
I do love my nappies though- lol
Bugger the cloth nappies!...to much work for me...I started my first child on cloth nappies....by the time I had the fifth...forget it...I need convienience.
i agree gem. i never had any intentions of using cloth with my bub, especially knowing i had to have a ceasar. the last thing i wanted to do was wash nappies as well. huggies are the only ones my little man doesn't wet through, he must be a piddler.
I always felt guilty for not using cloth nappies...environmentally that is. Besides that we lived in the UK and didn't have a dryer - so it would have taken forever to dry them! If I ever have another I probably will consider using cloth. But I agree - disposables are just so easy...
I used a mixture of cloth and disposable for my first (cloth at home disposable when we went out ) but by the time she was 18mths I had to triple nappy her in cloth at night to keep her dry, so made the switch to all disposable - found aldi mamia nappies and saved a bundle. With my second a boy disposables are the go he is a food and drink monster and goes through 12-14 nappies a day and cloth was just becoming a hassle. I have tried several enviro friendly disposables but dont lastmore than 1 hour on my guy, always go back to huggies and Mamia
I love Aldi nappies - I use to only use them, but we moved and Aldi just is too far away. For a environmentally friendly nappy you can't go past Bambo Nature - they are expensive but they are so good - and so so so soft. I used them when my son was a new born, and we moved again and I couldn't find them anywhere.
Ohh my gosh.. It's hardly any work using cloth now.
Just so you know. (not trying to convert you, just many people don't know how they've changed over the years)
You don't soak etc. Just dry pail and pop on a wash load every couple of days then pull them in and onto the change table. Esp if they are all in ones, there's no folding, stuffing or mucking about. They are just the same as disposables, but instead of having to take trips to the bin and buying nappy wrappers you have a bucket and make a trip to the washing machine.
I bought some fitted cloth nappies and love them. They are so easy to use (even for DH) and save so much money. I use disposables for outings as I don't want to be carting wet or dirty cloth nappies in my bag. But otherwise, the cloth nappies are great. They are so much more absorbent then the traditional cloth nappies that you have to fold, and use pins or fasteners with. So they can be in them for longer than the old ones as well, and you can get boosters for night time use, so that they are even more absorbent.
im a disposable user and only get whatever is on special or even homebrand as they all end up in the bin anyway but i have been also using huggies nappy pants during the day as TRYING to potty train and my daughter just doesnt want to play that game
i'm grandmother. cloth nappies was all you could get chemist sold disposable nappies very very dear .back 23 years ago cloth nappies make great cleanning clothes i still have them today .
modern cloth nappies have become very popular, they cost more up front but will save you money in the long run, you can get AIO (all in one) nappies that have absorbancy and waterproofness and are fitted on like a disposable, fitted nappies that fit like a disposable but need a waterproof cover, or fitted covers that you place a folded cloth square nappy into (or on baby first) and then velcro or snap button on. You can also get 'booster' pads for extra absorbancy (over night or travelling) and prefold nappies are a rectangle cloth nappy with with a soaking strip sewn down the middle to make it quick and easy.
If your on the go you'll need a 'wet bag' to store the wet nappies in, which is where dispsosables come in very handy as they can just be tossed and you dont have to carry around smelly nappies.
Also, you use nappy liners with cloth nappies, it makes it easier to clean when they poo coz you just chuck the liner in the bin (they are really really cheap) You can also now get flushable nappy liners.
I used cloth nappies for all 4 of my kids, for about the first 8 months. If you change them at every feed they dont pee too much at that age anyway. I just use them with a disposable nappy liner for the poo, and plastic pilchers. My kids get nappy rashes if i put them in disposables too much! I just rinse them, soak in Napisan (or Sards wonder soaker) then wash them in the machine in plain water. There Great and wont end up in Landfill
i used cloth nappies for my 2 children . nothing better then seeing white nappies flying on clothes line miss those days lol lol lol di
can you still get plastic pilchers i have not seen any for years .
I have just tried the Watermelon color from essie and my nails looks stunning! I love the vibrant color and received lots of compliments for.
