This is the first forum I've joined.
I live with my partner and 4 kids
Jake (with my ex) nearly 14 - didnt even consider cloth
Rowan (girl), 9 - only knew about laundry service & couldnt afford initial outlay at the time (month deposit & month in advance)
Aldo, 2 1/2, - I didnt get around to using cloth until he was about 6months old, unfortunately had such a crappy next pregnancy that cloth nappies went out the window.
He occasionally uses the potty and I'm thinking of going back to cloth for night time as he's taking an interest now his sister is using them.
Any suggestions, dont think he will take to large nappies/much stuffing as used to disposables and for his pjs to fit - hemp stuffing maybe? one of the few things I havent tried - he likes his blue cow lollipop stuffable!
My daughter Severin is 6 weeks yesterday. I have been using cloth since she was about 2 weeks old. I have yet to take the plunge for night time but I have just bought 2 pre-loved minki huggles to try.
I have a varied collection of nappies, including some from Freecycle (which I love and would recommend), but would love to try some more. I might get some small fuzzibunz (Aldo had a medium) which my partner could use - HE HAS YET TO CHANGE ANY CLOTH NAPPIES!!
I would love to make some and have done loads of research on the net - so much so that I havent had time to try and make any but have just bought some lovely wool and started to knit a soaker.
Sorry this has turned into an essay.
