Hi there! My name is Emma, I'm 29 and first time mum to DD Penny.
I started putting her in cloth when she was about 2.5 months (she's now nearly 10 months) and I have to hold my hands up and admit that I did what I always do and I jumped in feet first, probably without doing all the appropriate research.
I looked up what I needed, and did a trial run with the nappy we wanted to try and then bought a large stock of those and have been using them ever since (Bumgenius). But I tend to give up quite quickly when I hit a hurdle and back into disposables she goes, of which I am ashamed!
I don't want
to do it but it's just easier to me at the time. (main problem is compression wicking when bodysuits get too small - but we've fixed that problem so that's one hurdle overcome!) Therefore her cloth-wearing has been very on-again, off-again.... something I'm trying to stop.
Anyway, I am getting back on the horse though now (hence the siggy!!) and I just need some help to find the right nappies to increase my stash and get my daughter back in cloth full time. I have friends that are big cloth addicts who are helping me and pointed me to this place too!!
Am looking forward to getting to know you all! Sorry about the ranting introduction, but wanted to let you know where I'm at!! Thanks if you managed to read it all!
PS: We want pocket nappies!! LOL! A condition for DH. Birth-to-potty are preferable, but I don't mind others (like Wee Notions?)
