Hello from newbie in swansea

Postby jclmellor » Wed Apr 06, 2011 10:03 pm

hi

i'm mum to Arwen Eirlys, who's almost 4 months old. we are just coming to the end of breast feeding (i have been expressing with an amazing hospital grade double pump, as she never sucked at the breast!) and i'm now using formula (and feeling a bit engorged!). so now i have some time to explore reusables!

before i discovered this site, i bought lots of reusables to try, from ebay and other second hand sites. we've bought preloved:

motherease wraps (popper and applix)
tots bots fleece wrap
nature babies multiwrap

motherease sandys
little lambs bamboo
lollipop bamboo
ella's house bumhugger
tots bots cotton
tots bots fluffy
kissaluvs
fuzzi bunz
wonderoos
diddy diaper
(plus a couple of un-named pocket nappies from hong kong, from ebay, which don't work so well)

these are a mix of applix, nappy nippa and popper.

we are also trying an imse vimse swim nappy.

my favourite are the bamboo ones which are so soft. i'm also enjoying the tots bots because these are coloured, and look gorgeous. the motherease wraps are great, but i find the nature babies wrap looks much nicer! DD seems to be dry at night - i just bulk out the nappy with lots of inserts - although sometimes her babygrow is just a little bit damp when she wakes up in the morning.

i look forward to trying more types of nappies.
