Hi, I am new here

Postby Elaine » Sat May 24, 2008 11:34 am

Hi there, I am from South Africa. I am now pregnant with my 3rd little girl. I decided before I fell pregnant that I will like to use cloth nappies and make them myself. The only problem we have here is that we dont have the wide variety of materials, because most people are still using disposables here. Like PUL you cant get here in SA. I am still very new in this and I am going to ask alot of advise here. I have made one newborn nappy, just to practice, now I first have to finish other work, then I will practice some more.

Hiya Elaine,

Welcome to the tree :lol:

I'm Marijke, mummy to Joshua (3.5) and Anna who turned 1 last week. I only started using cloth on Anna when she was 8 months and am a TOTAL convert :lol:

Oh, and we've just come back from our holiday where we spent 3 days in SA (Pilanesberg) and enjoyed it a lot!

Hi Elaine and welcome to CNT!
I am another S African cloth addict, who has made her own nappies, so feel free to ask away! Where abouts are you? I'm in Cape Town...have a 3year old son who is still in night nappies and a 14month old daughter in cloth too.
Always good to hear there are other cloth addicts in SA!!!
