I didnt tell anyone i was taking it in, so they couldnt have any opportunity to tell me i couldnt LOL. The list simply said 'nappies' so i took in my lovely fluff. TBH i thought 'my baby, my choice' and was ready to fight them over it if they said anything, but in fact, all the MWs were inlove with cloth and the cloth wipes. They had never seen a baby in cloth and random MWs kept stopping by just to have a look/play LOL
I had a section too, but DH was in charge of the nappy and as she went through to be weighed dressed etc i had put some teeny nappies in the bag so he could put it on her instead of the disp i heard they put on them at that point.
Scarlett has been in cloth since birth and i've loved every min of it - especially her first butter SBOV NB nappy <3 (which i still have)
There after i used to just tell the MW's how to use them, its not like theyre hard is it and after that first night you'll be up and about changing baby anyway so... Oh, but i did get DH to prep them (liners in etc ready to use) as then it was literally a case of them putting them on, no faffing.
I used to put the dirty ones in a wetbag and DH would take them home with him at the end of visiting, wash them and bring back clean ones the next day
Go for it
