To sell nappies after PT or keep for baby no 2?

Postby Hannahboo » Tue Mar 13, 2012 8:56 am

Well we are now into the 3rd week of potty training and its going great. Hardly any accidents and completely dry at home during the day. I am still putting a nappy on Darcy overnight and if we go out for longer trips where we won't be able to stop easily etc but also had some very successful trips out in pants too, and plan to go completely nappy free (apart from over night) as of next week! So I now have loads of nappies sitting here not being used and just can't decide what to do with them. I keep thinking i'll sell them now, but then think it would be silly to sell them seeing as baby number 2 is on the way, but then the majority of them are larges which are still on the big size on Darcy with her being small so the likelihood is that they won't be used for probably almost 2 years by the time baby has grown into them. I do have some mediums that I may keep for a while but still wonder whether it would be best to sell them whilst they are well know WAHMs, DnF, OWW, LoobyLus, WN etc. I am guessing the longer I hold on to them and new designs etc come out they will go down in value?

Sorry rambling a bit, but just can't decide whether to sell them now and put the money towards other bits we will need whilst baby is small :-? What did you do/or planning to do when your LO potty trains?

Me too :hohoho: :oops:

I'd sell the larges but keep some mediums back just in case, Catrin had a couple of weeks before xmas where she was completely dry then she went back to having constant accidents so we put her back in nappies for a couple of weeks and tried again a few weeks later and she's been in pants now full time for nearly 2 months.

If there are any you really love keep those but i would sell the rest, like you say, it will be some time until they are used and they will not sell as well in 2yrs time should you find lo doesnt suit that kind. Plus that will help you fund small ones for the new baba.

See thats what worries me, if she started to have accidents but fingers crossed we won't need to. She does still fit her mediums so if I keep them I could put her in them if needs be.

That was what I was thinking, as wouldn't need to pay anything out of our bank account for small nappies then :thumbsup:
