Hi Catherine and welcome. Hope you enjoy the site. Snap at working nights dh's, mine does too, hence me spending all night on here relatively uninterrupted apart from when he is home which is Fri-Sun. nights.
What nights does your hubby work?
His nights off can be really eratic as he is a night manager for Tesco. Tends to have Saturday/Sunday or Sunday/Monday nights off. At least he seems to be getting 2 nights off together at the moment, it was 1 night here 1 night there for a while.
Ahhhh that's better than erratic one night here and one night there definitely. How do you find it with him working nights?
Alot better than it was when he first started in September last year. Still don't like it sometimes. Will have to see what it is like in a few weeks when/if I go back to work.

I typed out quite a long reply but I lost it all by pressing the wrong button. I am still getting used to typing on a laptop, I type too fast and end up all over the place.
It was a combination of things but alot of it was circumstance. Or at least I use that excuse, we were living with dh parent at the time in one room, I thought you had to wet pail and I used the excuse that I didn't always have access to the washing machine, I know now that this was a bit of an excuse, as they really are so easy to launder.
I also bought a bulk load of something that really didn't suit us. I bought them when I was pregnant with dd1 who was 8 in November, so I guess things have moved on since then. I was pregnant soon again and by the time we were in our own place with ds and had pnd I just couldn't face trying again.
At that point I didn't have internet access this time I read up alot. But lots of different nappies to see what we got on with. Lots preloved so we weren't spending loads on something I didn't get on with. Asked lots of questions. And they are all very pretty which is an incentive
much nicer than the things I had that looked like cardboard with dd1.
