Bamboo squares as a nappy?

Postby charlibunny » Mon Sep 06, 2010 3:06 pm

Would the small bamboo squares do for a nappy for the 1st 2 weeks you think?? I have about 10 of the 40cm size and i REALLY don't want to fork out on newborn nappies just for the umbi snaps but i am paranoid as Sophie's got infected.

If they do work what kind of weight range do they fit and how the hell do you use one?? :hohoho: :oops:

go for it hun! I used 10 terries and 10 little lambs from newborn to hmm not sure 2 months i think and even then only got the odd fancy nappy here and there to build up my stash slowly. Thing is bamboo is natuarlly anti bacterial anyway and im sure you could figure out a way to nippa them down at the front.

once you know how to fold them they are really easy even my hubby used them :shock:

I loved using our 40cm bamboo squares when the girls were new teeny babies :D

I have still got them all (just in case :wink: )

:giggle: I bought 10 too and they shrunk in the wash as well. I've practiced the newborn folds and like you say it makes them tiny! I've done the kite fold and neat fold and they seem to look as if they'd actually fit a baby
