Just thought I'd say hi and introduce myself! Only came across the board today and it looks like loads of fun, as cloth nappies are so addictive!
(Or maybe no need to blush here, as everyone else agrees! LOL)
I'm Rachel (as my name says), mum to Abigail 2yo and Benjamin 11mo. We live in the North of Scotland (tho I'm originally from USA).
got me onto cloth nappies, as he'd been to a enviro-friendly meeting where a real nappy table was set up, and the thought they would be better than all the disposables. Little did he know what he was starting! LOL I used prefolds & Proraps for the first 16 months of my daughter's life, but around the time her brother was born, they just weren't working right anymore (she was between sizes in wraps and finally started walking & nappies were falling down). Also, the prefolds weren't working for my little boy either, so I started trying out other nappies (mainly thanks to a trial scheme) and I got hooked first on Tots Bots style nappies and Motherease Airflow wraps (the *best!), and now I love Minki Fleece pockets for night time (with bamboo prefolds inside! I love bamboo!). So, a whole new world of nappies opened up. I've sewn a few nappies too, but usually too busy for that. Maybe someday, for my grandchildren! LOL
Look forward to reading more posts and hopefully saying a few things myself, when I find the time to stop reading!
