We had our last NCT Antenatal class last night and they handed out dolls with filled nappies - needless to stay hubby turned round to me and said 'are you sure about there reusable nappies?'
I positively responded with - 'of course we are'
(it wasn't real poop but was designed to simulate what to expect from normal formula fed/breast fed and ill baby)
Realistically we can't afford long term sposies and i also didn't like the feel of those that we on the dolls, they were huggies and felt really plasticy.
so my middle ground for short term use would be some flushable liners - just until we're confident with the use of cloth with poos. there are tonnes of different types of liners - i already have some fleece ones but i feel he would be more comfy with a few flushable ones in the early days.
i've heard the onelife ones are really nice and soft but they're not that easy to get hold of whereas mothercare stock the smart nappy, mio and another brand in their stores, i want to avoid delivery charges on something so small if i can help it.
Any ideas ladies?
