i did start to research cloth nappies as a childminder who supplies the nappies while kids are with me, when i had a 2 children almost full time in nappies and i was getting through a pack and a half a week. - i didn't take the plunge then (kids now 5 and nearly 5).
then thought about it again when i had another 2 children in nappies and actually sat down and did calculations
of how many times i would need to change each nappy before it became free
. that's how i found little lambs as they had everything i would need like buckets and stuff and enough nappies to save up for a wash and dry and use again.
did do the nappy lady thingy and got recommended bumbles and fluffles so got a couple of those each and tried a tots bamboozle.
then i started to get a little addicted to trying out other nappies as and when they got a mention on BC like the bg craze!
Then when I found out I was preg, I stocked up on bamboo terries as I didn't want to spend loads on tiny nappies and small wraps when everyone thought I was going to have a BIG baby.
Now we are just completely addicted and cloth use is the only thing in the whole of motherhood which went to plan 99.9% (the 0.1% being SCBU)
