that sounds like a good plan hunnie. xx

yay!! :) hope it works well, even if you just manage 2-3 days in cloth, if you do them at the end there won't be too many smelly wet bags to open on return.

we did 3 days camping a few weeks ago and it worked fine using them full time. My large wet bag held everything, and even in hot weather it didn't get smelly like I worried about (I told Mark we might be strapping the wet bag to the roof bars if it was too smelly for the car!! :) )

let us know how you get on?

If the weather is forecast fine and sunny, I'd take terry squares and some Nappy Fresh/Nappy Soak and a bucket to soak them, spare bucket to rinse them, wring them out and hang them to dry. Or use one of these - bet the Guides would love turning the handle: http://www.outdoormegastore.co.uk/acata ... .html?1405

I am just back from a full day out in the sorching sun, and god do the nappy bags smell! I put the dirty bag (3 pooy ones, 4 wet ones) inside the clean one (shoving the spare nappies in the shopping basket) and tied them all up, but I could still smell the buggy a mile away!! I definitely would not survive 4 days!! I am currently washing the nappies twice a day now its so hot, otherwise the nursery stinks of wee :(
