Thats what I'm doing with SIL too - she's getting all our old newborn and small nappies and wraps, and a few onesize nappies we dont use anymore, plus a woolly or two, and the bucket. She seems quite happy to try but is put off by her terrible washing machine (she lives in a rented house and isn't even sure what the settings are, and everything comes out still dirty
). Her baby should have grown out of everything by the time my new one comes along (and i daresay I'll probably have a whole new stash by then anyway
) and if she wants to continue with them then I'll help her pick out the next size or pass on some of Mollys bigger nappies.
We agreed that even if she only used them sometimes, she'd still save money by the sposies not used as she wont have the initial outlay of cloth nappies go consider, and she will probably get used to the washing etc. And if she changes her mind and goes with sposies then she can just give them back and i wont be offended at all!
If you expect them back, do make sure she knows that
Nothing worse than lending out your nappies only to discover she's trying to sell them on when she gives up!
