I was thinking about this this morning as i was stuffing/folding nappies and although im sure its been asked before i thought it would be interesting to see WHY people use cloth nappies...allergies? Cost? Envirmonetal factor? just becuase they are cute? etc..
With DD we decided to use cloth while i was pregnant becuase we were in a sticky spot financialy and so we bought 15 white BG's while I was still working (before mat leave pay started!!) and used those...they worked well untill she hit 8-9 months old...then i bought some prefolds which where pretty cheap and we used those with pre-loved wraps when the BG's started leaking all the time...I also liked prefolds under wool
Then when i got pregnant with Ds we were in a better situation financially (hence why we had another baby!) and I decided to use cloth again but this time it was for different reasons...yes i like the fact i dont throw money away on disp's but that wasnt my reason...I actually think cloth nappies are my hobby and I enjoy it!
I have 'pretty' nappies this time around, i love prints and colours and i just enjoy it!
I also love wool becuase i think it looks sooo cute!
We think that cloth is much better despite the fact that it costs me more than dips's!!
What about you?
