If it was me I'd take cloth, I can't stand the smell of disps at all. :puke:. A combination of both sounds like a good idea though.

I took cloth on holiday as we had washer/dryer etc and it was no problem. Not sure how I would've coped without mod cons though and I admire those who do :)

I agree with you it was the smell of disposables in the bin with my first two especially in the summer that made me consider cloth this time round. Am definately going to use proper nappies as much as possible on holiday the the thought of hot weather and disposable nappies is turning my stomach already.

I've holiday'd with cloth before and not had a problem. Half and half sounds like a good choice.

I didn't take cloth when I went to the USA nearly a year ago, I couldn't risk them getting lost as baggage and tbh wasn't sure about washing and drying them at a friends, so we had nearly 2 weeks in disposables which I had brought here and taken with me - but then I knew I had a LOT of shopping to bring back too. However every UK holiday we go on, cloth always comes even when we don't wash them, just drag 7 days used nappies back home!

I would be too scared to use sposies all the time as I have no idea if they work for DD or not, she was only in them for about 5 days when first born and they leaked all the time. I would take cloth but probably just my pockets and night nappies, and some extra inserts - pocket outers would probably dry in no time at all in a warm country, and they can be stuffed with anything in an emergency!

I'm not sure I'd do handwashing though, but to be honest I'd only book somewhere with washing facilities if we were going to go away.

we tend to just let our lil man run about with nappy off as much as poss on hols (in the accomodation mainly...he is a predictable poo-er! :hohoho: )...& swimming pools/swim nappies also cut down on "bum in nappy time". other than that, a mix works well...less washing for you :wine:

When we went away with Martha in nappies I took a few - usually took her out in a cloth nappy and took sposies to change her into or vice versa. I think I only took 5 or 6 fuzzis, but by that stage she was only in 3 or 4 a day, and we always used sposies at night (sorry ladies!)
