Most people I know think I'm mad and I'm just making work for myself, but I don't think they are much hassle, you've just got to get into a routine and make sure you buy enough nappies!
Me too Sue, I can not for the life of me remember when I made the decision.
I just happened to stumble across nappy sites whilst surfing baby sites and mentioned it to DP, who thought it was a great idea. DP and I are both quite (not overly so, but quite) environmentally minded, and hated the idea of packing our bins (and landfills) full of dispo's. That, added to the cost of buying dispo's, and the fact that we get charged for every binload of rubbish we put out made the decision quite easy for us.
We bought everything I thought we'd need (hahahaha as if) when I was still pregnant, ordered a lovely BTP pack of bamboozles, unbleached loveliness. I thought they were so sweet at the time.... LOL now they're various colours, including black!
Dispo's stink! literally, I don't know how people put up with them in their house all the time. Although I suppose I never noticed it myself before I had Rhys, it's just the norm. A lot of people don't even know cloth (apart from white terry squares which most dispo users would never dream of) is an option.
A friend of ours is convinced that we'll be in dispo's within the year "cos it's just so much hassle". DP reckons he's just trying to convince himself that we will be so that he feels better about himself using dispo's.
WOW what an essay. Considering it only started out as a poll answer
