oh no hun, don't feel bad at all. disposables have their place, whether it be convenience or in this case a medical reason.

I like Annette's suggestion of something cheap like terry squares

Must be tough seeing such a little person go through so much :hug: to you all

i agree with everyone. there is a time and a place, and this does sound like a time for sposies.

giant huggles to you, doesn't sound like much fun...maybe if you do go down the terry route, (tho wraps whould still be a prob) at least buy some bright bots to skim some of the joys of nice fun coloured clothe as a pose to boring old white (or disney) sposies

Sounds like you've had a really hard time.

I don't even think cloth is even an option while having some forms of chemo. The waste products can be too toxic to be dealt with in the home (ie washing) and must be incinerated so i reckon you HAVE to use sposies.

(I work in the pharmaceutical industry and it's a big no-no to put a lot of chemicals/drugs down the sink/drains, which is effectively what you would be doing by washing cloth with toxic waste in them).

Hope things go well with the treatment (sounds awful :hug: )

course i know who you are!!!! I am still about (tho must admit to being a bit lax about actually using my cloth...but it does still look lovely and bring me great joy!! and i probably still have some nappies that started life as yours!!!!) and have made this place my new home (tho unfortunately dont even have a huge amount of time to spend on here anymore :(...oh well, i'd hate to be bored!!) Stay here, everyone is lovely, it feels small cos its so friendly, but is also nicely large that if you post a qu or an ad you get loads of response! (and no one is petty about what you can and cant say :) )

How is Logan? and how old is he now? (you need tickers :) ) and how old is Ryder? He sounds like he has really been through the mill the poor poppet. (and you, how are you managing? post loads more, then join the 'private area' where you can rant to your hearts content in privicy)
have you tried reflexology to deal with any side effects of treatments? A friend of mines father sweared by it, and i know loads of people who swear by it for all sorts of things with kids cos of the lack of risk and side effects.
