having to take disposables camping

Postby jennyclaire » Mon Jun 21, 2010 2:41 pm

well, I'm off camping at the start August to a Guide camp. Taking me 2 kids who will be almost 4 months old and 18.5months old. I am gutted that I won't be able to take my cloth nappies with me. I'm going to have to take disposables!! :( There is not any washing facilities.

How long are you going for? I’ve been away a couple of times where there’s been no washing facilities and got on with cloth OK – I just took a big wetbag and put all the dirty ones in there and did a big nappy wash when I got home. I guess it depends how long you’re going for though, and whether you’ve got enough nappies.

Don't know what to suggest as 8 nights is a long time to have cloth in a wet bag. Maybe you could do part-time cloth? Or even use eco-sposies so at least there's no nasty stuff against their skin? :hug:

I've just been on a week's camping holiday and used disposables. I didn't have washing facilities and wasn't going to let my nappies stay dirty for a week. What if they went mouldy :shock:
You'll appreciate them all the more when you get back.

I just used standard nappies as the eco ones still have chemical gels in them, I've yet to be convinced that eco disposable exist.

Hmm yes that is a long time - I wouldn't have enough nappies to last that long. I would just buy the eco disposables in that case then x

other option would be to use disposables for the first 4 days and cloth for the last 4 days? That way the wet/dirty ones won't be in a wet bag for too long, and you can wash them as soon as you're home.

The one's I use don't but for me, it's also that I want the nappy to be more breathable, unlike regular sposies :)

Hope your camping trip goes well jennyclaire :idea:
