If you're not sure you'd LOVE it then don't spend that much, can you not take a few embroideries out to make it a bit cheaper?

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:


This is very embarassing :oops: , but I deduct a third of the cost for assumed resale value before calculating the cost-per-wear. Clearly many nappies resell for a lot more than a third, but some are less.

Nappymatics :hohoho:

For me, the whole - "you can get 3 nappies for that price" argument just means nothing as we don't neeeeeeeeed 3 nappies, we don't neeeeeed any more nappies so I preferred to buy 1 really really really lovely nappy than 3 OK nappies - dygwim?

My last one was triple minkee with minkee inner and 4 embroideries so was always going to be expensive.

Yeah, I can see that point. Maybe when I'm back at work and actually have some money I'll think differently!!!

Definately an excellent point! My last WN was triple cut, minkee inner, and 2 embroideries and that was only £21 though surprisingly, the only problem is I was one of the first to order a triple cut and now I've seen all the other's I want more, I'm thinking of doing a night one to compliment it though :oops: :oops: and it will probably be very expensive as I have a few embroideries in mind, some that aren't on the site yet :roll: I think provided it's exactly what I want I'd be happy to pay whatever it costs TBH, so I retract my previous statement :giggle: :giggle:

lol
I have changed my mind its no longer an under water and beech scene :wink:
Its reduced in price to £32.25 thats with 1 embroidery !
I can't decide what minkee or if i should get a double minkee with a smaller embroidery o the front. :roll:

The most annoying thing is that I have 2 orders I'm waiting for so this will take forever once I finally decide.
weenotions the evil cloth ....... :twisted:
