Congrats on the baby! May he or she bring you as much joy as our daughter has brought us x
Thanks for these suggestions, will go and have a look now... regarding the wipes, what is the difference between the fabrics and why are some fleece on one side, towelling on the other? The ones I have used in the trial are just like flannels really...
And another question... what are Flongies/Longies? I keep seeing them referred to but I can't find out what they are
The different fabrics have different softness and 'grabbing' properties
I have gone for OBV on one side and bamboo terry on the other. It means that one side is roughish for poops and the other is nice and soft for delicate bits, and for drying up. Cheeky wipes, and other wipes are generally 1 type of material, and if you wanted both sides made out of bamboo terry you can do, but I like the extravigence of the OBV as it is strokably soft and yummy.
Longies are knitted wollen trousers. Once they are lanolised (soaked with lanolin) they are waterresistant yet still breathable and make great nappy covers for fitten nappies. you dont have to bother with a wrap, as the trousers are a wrap as well as clothes. You can also get soakers, which look like knitted pull up wraps, shorties which are knitted shorts, and skirties which are knitted skirts with a soaker attached. All make great nappy covers, especially overnight.
Flongies are fleace versions of longies. They are cheeper to buy, but unlike wool you have to wash flongies after every use.
Im not the best person to ask about woolies tho as I havent used them mysel (am starting a little stash tho
) If you have a look at the wool section, there will be tons of posts on how to wash and lanolie etc
