Nine years later cloth nappies are very different! These days (boy am I sounding old!) they are already in the shape of a disposable nappy and have velcro to fasten them and don't need plastic pants over the top. They are just like a disposable really! I wish they were out years ago, as they are great! I wasn't sure how I would like them as I knew it would be another thing we would have to organise everyday, but we have now had them for two months and are loving them. The main reason I decided to switch from disposables is the cost of nappies. I hate having to buy a box of nappies all the time - such a waste of $30-$40 or so and they are gone so fast. With Noah in nappies also, it gets very expensive having to buy formula and nappies for both Kobe and Noah.
I was worried it would be a pain but I'm actually finding it quite satisfying to do the whole nappy routine every day or two.
( I love days like today when I don't have to use the dryer!)
I love it when I have a nice clean pile of nappies, all ready to go!
