Wow! Too much for me I'm afraid, my nappy budget is rather limited. I'm sure it is beautiful though. :( Like others have said you could get two or even three really nice nappies for that much.

I haven't paid more than £18 for a nappy and would find it very hard to justify spending more than £20. I use the cost-per-wear-compared-to-a-sposie model too. But if you love it, can afford it and would get the wear from it... they're not in nappies for long, after all.

Ahh yes but that method is flawed. It doesn't take into account the resale value of the nappy once your LO has stopped using it. :wink:

:shock: :shock: youre mad woman! :wink: :giggle: :hohoho:

I would NEVER spend £37.50 on one nappy - and im assuming theres postage to go on top too , making it basiclly £40?! I wouldnt even spend that if i had the money / gift voucher - id rather buy 3 NL's and get Hanna to dye them to match woolies! :D :D

My most expensive nappy so far is my UD that i designed , and even that came in at only just over £20 - inc post.

I would like to get one more goregously designed nappy before H pt's but even then i really wouldnt want to go over £25!

Cant wait to see the pics of you do decide to get it though :wink:

Even I think that's alot, possibly even too much :oops: the most I've ever spend is around £27 incliding postage, and that I assume will be nearly £40 with postage, and I also don't think you'd sell it on for more than £20 I've really struggled to sell my more expensive WNs for a decent price, but if it's worth it to you then go for it!!!!

Hmm a little expensive for me, I paid around 25 for Lexi's personalised birthday nappy. I just couldn't justify spending that much on one nappy but it's up to you, if you really want it go for it :D

Just went and converted it and OMG no I could never ever spend that much on one nappy. The NF nappy I just bought for someone would have to be one of the most expensive I;ve bought which is pretty sad when you think about it!!

Aaagghh
You lot are no help..... LOL

I still don't know, I'm not sure I love under water enough to spend the money.
I posted about a fairy embroidery ages ago, I wonder if that will fit ok instead?????

I have an OBV outer NL on order, I'm going to dye it and do matching wool.
