I agree with the others on this, never used to get it, but now I love my pretty fitteds and have just got my first embroidered one. It is just like choosing nice underwear for ourselves, I like to colour co-ordinate DDs nappies with her wool where possible, and as I always have a clothes horse covered in drying nappies in the corner of our breakfast room I'd much rather look at my pretty nappies instead of boring white ones.

They are purely for my benefit, but I like them and enjoy picking out what DD will wear each time I change her, so that's good enough reason for me. As I have done 1,600 nappy changes in the last 8 months :shock: I may as well enjoy them a bit if I can :giggle:

Those of you who say you only use WAHM nappies now (I know a few of you have said this in the past), whose do you use? (i.e. which WAHMs?). I'm just being nosey really, would be nice to get a few recommendations and try out some new ones x

We have 22 MEOS which were Toby's main nappy (didn't know about pretty fluff then! :oops: ) They're Rowan's nursery nappy and are still going strong after nearly 4.5 years of use. (I did dye them pink and purple for Rowan though so they're slightly prettier) They probably make up about a third of our stash. The rest are mainly pretty pockets and fitteds which I keep for me to use - I'm not sending pretty fluff to nursery. Although she did end up in an embroidered WNOS one day as we'd been at the doctors and as per usual had filled her nappy when we were there. The girls at nursery were very impressed and keep commenting on her 'fancy nappy'. :giggle:
She's now showing signs of PT though which I am not impressed about. :(

My favourites are WN, of course, Upsy Daisy, Muttaqins, HL and we have one Flowerpot Tots fitted which is a great fit and so reliable.

Fitteds I like are Dunk n Fluffs, Holdens Landing an Wee Notions one size Northern Lights (they are not making these at the moment though)

Night Nappies I've tried are Wee Notions Night Notions and Upsy Daisy soy night nappies. My favourites are the WNNNs, but now Kerr's back in cloth at night, I'm going to try LLS night nappies :D

My favourite pockets/AI2s by far are Wee Notions. Absolutely gorgeous and very reliable for us :wine:

I dont have any embroidered fitteds...just DnF's and goodmamas (OBV and LWI OBV) and i have them for their functionality...the fact that they are pretty is a bonus...i quite like to look at them on the washing line :giggle:

I wouldnt pay to embroider a fitted really...i would spend the money on wool :twisted:
