Thanx for all the replies and for all the warm welcomes . And here I was thinking u would all be a bunch of 'cloth nappy nazis' (see the Daily Mail thread). Its the first forum I've joined where I actually feel I want to stay around and post.
Will def check out the WeeNotions after all the recommendations - not that I needed much encouragement as they are a gorgeous nappy. At least now I can blame u lot for my decreasing bank balance if dh comes asking questions
