Real Nappy Challenge: An update

By | May 16, 2011

So today is the beginning of Real Nappy week and the day I’m supposed to be starting my Bambino Mio challenge to use one real nappy per day. 

Don’t worry, I’m not going to fail as I actually started last Thursday!  I work Mon – Wed and my parents have C so I can’t really do the challenge for these 3 days, hence me starting early.

It’s gone really well so far.  We used a nappy on Thursday & Friday without any problems.  C likes them and calls them her posh nappies!  On Friday I actually dug out a couple of one size nappies I’d bought before C was born so I now had 4 nappies I could use.

I did really well on Saturday and C was in cloth nappies from waking up until bath time with no disasters!  I was worried about her doing a poo in them but this happened on Saturday and was contained nicely in the liner so I could simply flush it away.

All the nappies needed washing on Sunday so she was in disposables again but they’re all ready and waiting for when I’m off work again on Thursday.

I’m actually really enjoying using the real nappies.  The only problem I’m having now is that I haven’t got enough!  I don’t think I’m brave enough to try one overnight yet but I’m definitely converted to using them when I can during the day, if only I’d tried them a year ago.

Well done you for trying! It took us a while to go into reusables overnight as my little one is VERY wet at night and normally soaked through the brands we had – one night we had no choice and put her in Bambino Mio overnight and she didn’t leak at all. I was thrilled and impressed and those are now her night time nappies. Hope it works the same for you!

That’s good then. I do have some boosters to go in the nappies so might be brave and try one overnight!
