Washing pre-loved nappies

Postby Shaunie » Mon Dec 21, 2009 12:37 pm

Just thinking about pre-loved nappies & wondering if many people wash them themselves before using on their LO? :oops:

I do, not sure why because they have always arrived smelling very clean.

I nearly always wash them first, unless I'm so excited about getting Oliver in it! Kate x

Well I sometimes do - depends how desperate I am to try it out or if I'd have to wait too long for it to be washed & dried :giggle: :oops:

How-ever, last night I put Isaac in a pre-loved WNNN that I hadn't washed & he was sooooo sore this monring :cry: on his scrotum which is the place he gets sore if he's going to. The nappy smelt so bad, it made me wince and had to turn away from it until I could fling it across onto the kitchen floor :shock: because I could barely breathe :drama:

This could be down to teething as I recognise the strong pee smell or I guess the nappy could need stripping, or like Dawnsmummy said, it could be the wash powder. My gut instinct says teething / nappy needs stripping.

I feel like a very neglectful Mum today & will always wash pre-loved nappies from now on. LO is in an eco-sposie today though so I could smother him in cream. Thankfully he doesn't seem to be in any discomfort so that's good :roll:

WTS :giggle: I do generally wash before use, though.
