Hi all, I'm new to the whole Cloth Nappy Experience, no one I know well has used them and I am a total novice! I have 3 little ones at the moment, 2 boys and my daughter is 10 months, just about to switch to cloth as am also expecting baby number 4 in April and thought I'd better start considering the ecological impact of my high fertility! (At a conservative estimate I calculated 20,000 nappies into landfill from 4 kids, not to mention the cost!)
I have got totally sucked in to Cloth Nappy Fever and ordered over £115 worth of nappies and accessories in the past few days (been snowed in!), but justifying it to DH that we are saving in the long run... wouldn't have cost me as much if I had stuck to one type from one place but I was shopping around so postage adds up! Am awaiting delivery of...
4 New FuzziBunz medium from ebay @£4 each plus p&p of £6.25 which was a real bargain, though they only had white. Will probably decide I should have just stuck to these, such a good price, but had already bought others by then.
1 from TheNappyCo (ebay) @ £5.72 inc postage (may as well try some just in case they are amazing...)
1 other cheapo ebay one plus a Wet Bag @ £7.70 total in p&p
1 more chinese import @ £3.59 inc p&p
4 two part system nappies with 2 covers, second hand from ebay. £9.72 inc postage (one lifeand Goebel)
2 Thirsties Duo in pretty Minky patterns... cos I couldn't resist, plus a bucket... £36.40 inc P&P from Kittikins
1 Real easy nappy £12.99 plus £1 p&p @ babykind.co.uk
Also bought Terry boosters, fleece liners and flushable liners on ebay, total cost around £17
So as you can see, I've gone rather OTT, can't wait for them to arrive though... just hope I can stick with it. I am rather flakey and friends have already implied this is just another of my Fads! Thought I'd join the forum to keep me motivated so when I am drowning under a sea of pooey nappies I will have somewhere to turn!
