Real Nappy Challenge: How did we do?

By | June 1, 2011

Apologies for the late update on this one but we were away last week and I’m only just catching up.

I’m pleased to say that the challenge has been a success and I’m loving using cloth. We’re not using it full time (I only have 4 nappies at the moment) but I’m using them when I can.  I’m actually looking for some cheap or pre-loved nappies so I can use them more often.  If C wasn’t 2 in 4 weeks time and potty training being just a few months away I’d definitely just go out and buy more cloth but I have to look at it practically as well, and M probably wouldn’t be too pleased if I went and spent £100+ for a few months use.

We haven’t had a single leak since we’ve been using the Bambino Mio nappies and I’ve got over my fear of C having a poo in them. 

With only having a few nappies at the moment I am finding it a little difficult to wash them as although it’s fine to wash them in your regular wash, you can’t use fabric softener which I normally use.  Obviously if you used cloth full time you’d have enough nappies to do a wash cycle purely for nappies so there wouldn’t be a problem.  If anyone does have any tips for me here I’d be grateful!

Overall though, I’m loving using cloth.  The Bambino Mio nappies have been fantastic.  They’re easy to use, quick to dry and some of the wraps are very funky!  I’m just sad that I waited almost 2 years to try them!

I am really annoyed that I didn’t carry on using cloth nappies next child I am so going to use them. I think they are much better xx
