Why did you start?
Dunno! I alway thought I would do cloth. I also thought that there was always the cloth option! Then when I was pregnant I started researching about cloth. I found that firstly no-one does cloth anymore and the options available in SA were severly limited. Between my cousin (Judy) in the UK and my sister in Aus I was able to get some advise about what real cloth nappies were like nowadays. It just seemed to be better in so many ways, environmentally, cost, reliability. I have to say that I have not been disappointed....even on the cost savings...I am firmly on the wagon
so that helps!! I have to admit I was not sure about the reliability until i used sposies and they leaked worse than my cloth, then I was completely sold!!! Also, when my son arrived I found that he leaked permanently in disposables and so he was in cloth at 1 week old 'cos I was tired of washing everything all the time!!!why did you continue?
I did not find washing them difficult and they worked better than the sposie that i tried. The cost savings also helped as I stopped working when dd was born and suddenly our budget was ridiculously tight. Not having to buy sposies gave us that much needed breathing room! It is also what converted dh to the benefits of cloth....that and the smell of sposies! Dh does like strong smells and I have to say sposies smell, even if they are just wet!Can you see yourself going back to Sposies?
No, not permanently. Hate using sposies even for short times, altho' sometimes necessary.In which situations would you revert back to sposies? either temporarily or permenantly?
I use sposies when we go camping as there are seldom adequate washing facilities, altho' I have even thought of using cloth then!!!! Also at the end of my pregnancy when my hips and back are too sore to do more than the barest minimum in terms of washing! Permanently is not an option for me, cloth is soooo much nicer!
