We've been in Cornwall for the last 2 weeks in a caravan - checked the site had a washing machine, packed all the terries and woollies, only to get there and find that it had an automatic powder and softener dispenser which couldn't be turned off.
After spending 2 days of the first 4 in a small port about 20min away just to use the launderette (- DD decided that this was the week to start going through loads of nappies so we were having to wash every 2 days instead of every 3 as planned
) we decided we would get some disposables to try to eek out the nappies for at least a day longer.
We have steered clear of all disposables since last summer when we had massive rash problems - even to the point of not going to visit my parents at Easter because they wouldn't let me use real nappies and I didn't want to risk another 10 week rash trauma.
So we start to use them , making sure we slather her in lanolin as that seems to work best for us as a barrier and moisturiser - not only no rashes, but after 2 days, the skin on her legs and bottom is clearer than it's been for ages.
Ok - I'm pleased that her skin is clear - but people keep congratulating me on not 'having' to use cloth anymore
I don't want to use disposables - I never wanted to use disposables - they smell rank - I don't find the washing a problem, I like my nappies and wool - I'm gutted that we are now going to have to switch to sposies as we really can't justify keeping her in cloth when obviously the combo that works best for her is sposies and lanolin.
It's just not fair - and no-one understands
and none of her lovely wool fits any more - even the shorties that I finished on holiday and haven't even been lanolised are going to have to go I am going to hang onto my terries and couple of pairs on longies though - just incase things change again
