Post subject: re useable nappies
Sorry if in wrong section

I'm considering using these for this one but i know absolutely nothing about them lol.

Can anyone give me a full run down. Do they save money ? Do you buy diff sizes like disposable ? Do they come in different parts ? I'm not fused about pretty ones as such plain white is fine. Where can i buy reasonably cheap ones that are good ?

Sorry for all questions i am a.complete novice at this one !

I used them for oliver and Tilly is just going into the birth to potty ones now.

We use terry towels with the cotton bottom wraps..and the birth to potty ones ate just ebay cheapies.
Then you have a liner on top..I I used reusable liners for a oliver as a weaned baby..but for younger baby I used disposable liners.

Im on my phone at mo so will take me for ever to link lol but have a look on ebay for reusable nappies.

Have a look at goreal.org, fill your pants.com and the nappy lady x

I use them Smile I have birth to potty ones, the type I use have the main bit and 2 inserts which you stuff inside them.

top brand ones can go for around £15 each but I only have 2 or 3 of these, have a search for DudeyBaba, that's where most of mine are from, they're really cheap but really good Smile

I used Kushies for 2 of mine, they're an all in one nappy, I just put them in the wash at the end of the day and tumble dried them and they were ready the next day. You can't use a washable at night, they are not absorbent enough you'll still need a disposable at night time.

I use cloth nappies at night without a problem Smile I either use night time inserts or just put an extra day insert in Smile

I use Kushies sometimes with my little man, but found that the sizes weren't quite right - the ones he has now are 10-22lbs and are really too small for him, but he's only 17lbs6... so a bit disappointed that they haven't lasted as long as they should have for him. Still - I shall use them for the next baby too - but when we go out and about I do use disposables as I find it easier than carrying the bulky reusable dirty around with me, and I don't worry about leaks with the disposables, whereas like I said - the reusables we have aren't big enough and may leak if he does a number 2... >.<

I may go searching for dudeybabas though if they come recommended! Smile x
