Wow. Thanks everyone for such quick replies..
I started off thinking to use disposables liners. But then I was reading the fleece was better to keep the moisture away from the bottom and as DS gets a sore bottom easily I thought I'd try those instead. I really liked the idea of just being able to pick the liner up and flush. I'll get a pack of disposables and give them both a try.
I like the idea of putting a bit of lotion on after cleaning but I thought you weren't suppose to use creams with reusables ?? I've been worried about that as his bottom gets so sore sometimes...
We have brought a mix of new and preloved to try out. There are some tots bots, fuzzibunz, bambootys, little lambs, terries, prefolds, thirsties wrap, motherease wraps and some ebay cheapies. Some are AIOs, some pockets and then the terries and prefolds. From what started out as just getting 2-3 to try out I went a bit OTT and now have about 20.
I've got a wet bag on its way but have a spare bin so was going to give both a go. I guess the bag makes more sense as it would be a lot easier to carry the nappies downstairs to the washer without dripping... I was just worried the smell would deep out of the wet bag. I love the idea of the oil. I was going to get some to make up a wipe mix so will definitely give that a go.
I had thought about the splash back problem so will give the bucket idea a go. A lot of the time he is in such a mess that its easier just to stand him in the bath and shower his bottom down (after getting the big bits off) so I guess it could work to do the both at the same time.
I guess its just a case of trying everything out and having 'fun' along the way.... We are expecting another LO soon so the idea is to get into the reusable nappies now so it doesn't feel so different when LO comes. Fingers crossed it goes ok.
Thanks for all your help.
