You could always use it as an excuse to buy a different type of nappies eg weeneeshttp://www.totnesnappycompany-shop.co.u ... ouch-Pants
(just so you can see a pic).
They are a cotton outer (we used my sisters ones when we were in Aus when Kayleigh was 4 months old). There is a waterproof pouch in them and you can use cloth pads or biodegradable pads in them. At the time I thought that they were a lot cooler than our 2 part system as there wasn't a wrap the whole way round the nappy.
I know there are other brands of pouch nappies, but can't think of them off the top of my head.
