Hi and thanks for all the wonderful welcomes
What a wonderfully friendly site this is!
I had been told by another friend to have a selection rather than too many of one type of nappy but didn't realise microfibre weren't so great for heavy wetters. What a lot a have to learn, and yet so exciting to be learning it all!
As for cloth sanitary protection... I actually bought some a few years back just as the doctors stopped my periods to try and control my Endometriosis (which didn't work, well stopping my periods worked but it didn't stop the Endo!) But I've decided after years of intense hormonal treatments to let me body have a break and do what it's going to do after baby is born so I am excited to try using csp
I am all for reusable and earth-friendly products so am planning on getting reusable wipes and breast pads as well. My sister-in-law says I'm an "Earth Mama" as if it is a bad thing (totally opposite to her way of life) but I am quite proud of that, even if she did mean it in a less-than-complimentary way
Thanks again for the extremely warm welcome. I'm really excited about spending more time here. I am slowly browsing my way through the different sections as well as the pre-loved nappy sites and the classifieds on here
Also, YES definitely take cloth to day care... some of the staff will think its weird no matter how cool it is, but I fell in love with it instantly
