Hi all!

Postby Lysistrata » Tue Jan 21, 2014 8:38 pm

Hi, I'm due to become a first time mum very soon (due 1st Feb but a very big baby so hoping he makes an appearance sooner!)

I've been looking into cloth nappies since I started trying to conceive almost 6 and a half years ago. So I'm excited about all the possibilities.

I currently live in Yorkshire, previously London - I moved back up temporarily to be closer to my family, who are so excited I think they might have moved to London themselves if I'd stayed down there.

Lovely to meet you all!

Hello and welcome! I'd suggest trying a few different type so you can work out what suits your baby and definitely dont' buy a 'set' of one type as if that style / shape doesn't suit your baby then you will be stuck with lots. Classifieds is a great spot to pick up great condition preloved newborn nappies to try. If your baby is really big you may also be able to go into size 1 nappies quite quickly or straight away which is handy.

As the others have said feel free to ask as many questions that you need to and read through all the info that we have on here to help get you going :widesmile:

Thanks for the welcome :)

I have ordered a few types to try, a combination of eBay bargain hunting and some new ones. I've got bamboozle stretch and little lamb bamboo with mother ease wraps for nights, then a few different types for daytime (little lamb AIO are such a bargain at the moment! Also have done Grovia hybrids, some fuzzibuns and some Milovia)

Its seriously addictive, this nappy buying lark!

Hi and welcome :)

Congratulations on your pregnancy.

I'm just getting back into using cloth, counted my nappies today and I have 138! So yes, it's addictive!

I took some pics yesterday but I can't remember how to upload them. I'll check it out and post then in a separate thread.
