For me there was never going to be anything else to be honest. I used to use terry squares on my dolls
I was 8 when my eldest nephew was born and my sis used terries, taught me the differant folds for boys and girls and I loved it
I used sposies for just over a week as I somehow managed to accumulate a few packets of newborn ones and due to my unexpected hospitalisation, blood loss, low hb
I decided to use then, but couldn't wait to get the cloth out. So she was in cloth from day 11. We also had a week of sposies when she was a few weeks old and I had a bad cold and had these packs of nappies to use, so I did. I since had to buy a pack when I was out once and ran out of nappies, but I've used two or three of those and they're too small for her now.
Of course I am now slightly addicted to my pretty fitteds and fluffy pockets, but if I was told I couldn't use them we'd still be in our terry squares.
I think sposies are genuinely disgusting and hope and prey I never have to put a other one next to my baby's precious bum
My friends that use them seem to never change their LO's when we're out and then complain about sore bottoms and nappy rash
And don't get me started on the stink. I hate having to go in a changing room and cope with the awful smell of overfilled nappy bins
My nappy bucket doesn't smell that bad after 3 days even if every other nappy's had a poo in it.
The financial aspect is quite high in my reasons, that's why I initially went for terry squares and not any kind of sized nappies. And most of the nappies I have now I'll keep around for number two
and those I don't I'll sell to buy more
If I hadn't got my lovely collection of nappies I'd still be using cloth though. I seriously at the mo wouldn't be able to afford to buy nappies every week, so I'm pleased I don't have that added stress
Finally there's the environmental issues. I hate to see bins full of nappies, not to mention those that you see lying in the street on bin day
And of course the disgusting thought of the decades they'll be sitting in landfills.
