Hi I'm New Here

Postby scatterby » Sat Aug 29, 2009 11:03 am

Hi, I'm 34 weeks pregnant and am very keen to use Real Nappies.

However, I am now so totally and utterly confused by all the different products and advice, I have nearly given up on the idea. I am hoping that people here can help...please?!! :idea:

Hi and welcome :idea: . Don't give up, it cn be confusing to start with but you will soon understand it all and there will be no stopping you.

Basics to know

3 main types:
Flats - terries and prefolds, need a waterproof cover
Fitteds - shaped and elasticated nappies, also need a waterproof cover
Pockets / all in ones / all in 2 - waterproof outer which you add absorbent inserts to forming one piece to put on

There are also a couple of useful threads here which are worth a read
faqs - viewtopic.php?f=23&t=3
nappy fabrics - viewtopic.php?f=23&t=15576

Hope this is a start for you and then come and ask as many questions as you need :D

Look forward to chatting :D

Hi, it does seem very confusing in the beginning, but things do get easier, I promise.

Have a look around at the topics and ask as many questions as you need.
