I'm expecting my first baby in September and have wanted to use cloth nappies ever since I came across them when working in daycare nurseries a few years back. I fell in love with the bamboo ones a particular family used back then and had no idea how much variety there was until falling pregnant myself.
We are planning on using disposables for the first couple of weeks just to get used to parenthood, especially as my pregnancy has been very difficult and I am wanting to ease from pregnancy to parenthood a little first. I have a newborn starter set from Tommee Tippee for our first foray into cloth nappies and am starting to hunt for the next lot we will use when our baby grows out of these.
I'm thinking o using microfibre for daily use due to them drying quicker, but I do want to buy some bamboo ones for nighttime use and adding a few more cotton ones just for variety. Our budget is very tight so we're buying pre-loved nappies for the most part, especially as this is the only baby we're planning on having. Even so, making a choice between the huge varieties out there is so difficult!!
Looking forward to browsing the forums some more for info on the different types
Whoops, forgot to mention, I'm Amanda, 27, recently married to my best friend, and looking forward to welcoming the little one we thought we may never have thanks.
