We don't go on holiday much, but I've used them at my mums either with a wetbag or taken a bucket. She's always desperate to wash them for me, even though I've got more than enough!

I did take disposables when we went to Wales in the summer as I didn't realise there was a machine in the cottage. We're going back this year, so if we're still using nappies at night I'll be taking them :D Just to see the reaction from the rest of the family LOL

when it was just me dh and ds1 we used cloth everytime we went away! pocket nappies. If they were just wet I did hand wash the pocket to be re-used!

Had to use one of dh's t'shirts as stuffing on a couple of occassions (shhhhhhhhhh :lol: :lol: :wink: )

now with 3 of them in cloth I used sposies when we go away (which has been twice in total since the girls have been around!) and will do so again! as much as I love cloth nappies, after all I need a holiday too sometimes :wink:

Steph - you are missing the obvious - BUY MORE NAPPIES :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well sure - but I already have 35 nappies - I think that's more than enough! I already have to do two washes when they need doing sometimes :oops: :oops: :oops:


Only 35, I think you should at least double that and you wouldn't touch my numbers :wink:

Coming from Annette and her massive collection!

I've used cl0th with Zach since he was 10 m0nths 0ld s0 10 m0nths n0w. I did buy s0me litle nappies but never used them :oops: and s0ld them all. I can't wait t0 use teeny tiny nappies next time.

When we have been t0 Dev0n 0n h0liday 0r just away f0r a night 0t tw0 I take cl0th nappies. F0r a week in Dev0n I just t00k 8 fluffles and 4 night nappies, we had a washer, drier, airer and line and the fluffles dry in n0 time anyway. I st0re them in wet bags and washed in the evenings s0 the fluffles c0uld dry 0vernight. We did use disp0s when abr0ad and hated them!!! If we had had a washer I w0uld have taken cl0th I think.

I actually bought 7 kushies preloved off ebay when I was pregnant with Erin and was intent on using them but when they arrived they were really naff looking and I was totally put off... I was gutted as I had chatted to a couple of people and they recommended them :shock:

So anyway i went with disposables in the end. However when Erin was 9 months I bought my first lot of Fuzzis and loved them. She was in the fulltime by 10 months (had to get the collection up!) and I haven't looked back since!

So she's been in cloth for 10 months now. :D which is over half her little life now.

Ten years!! Started off with DD1 and a laundry service but she wsa born in May and I hated hte bin of festering nappies there all week in teh hot weather so then I moved to Kooshies. They were not very good so we had to put her in dispos at night. She was out of nappies just when DD2 was born. I struggled on with Kooshies and prefolds with DD2 and then discovered Totsbots and Motheresae - fab! Used them for DS1 and then with DS2 also got some Bamboozles. Now they are all out of nappies and I am selling off the last of them (if anyone will have them!) - :cry:
