Have been flitting around for a few days on the site after being lured in by the nappy Classifieds sections and thought it was about time I took the plunge and said hi.
I live in London and am the lucky mum of a gorgeous 10 month-old ds, Max
. I became a bit of cloth nappy addict before he was born when I started buying different types of nappies for to try out on him, partly because I was caught up by how cute and different they looked, their complete lack of chemicals, and partly because I liked the idea of not contributing to the landfill problem. I tried them out on him at 8 weeks and suffered so many problems with leaks that I went back to 'sposies very quickly. A week ago I decided to give my BG's another try and we managed 2 days with no leaks and I haven't looked back since (thank you BG
) I have to own up to still using a 'sposie at night as I haven't yet found a reliable night-nappy and am currently looking into possibilities (like the sound and look of bedbugs).
I've also been looking at pics of peoples stashes and realized I have some seriously fun work to do to get mine up-to-scratch. I thought I was doing well with my BG and BBOS but CNT has opened my eyes to the likes of Mutts, Holdens Landing, Lucy's Hope Chest, Goodmamas, Bububebe and more - feel rather like the ugly duckling next to the swan.
Looking forward to chatting and sharing with everyone in the future.
