Have just joined the cloth nappy tree, so hope im in the right place for my questions.
Im going to be a 1st time mum in April and have decided to go the cloth nappy route despite all my friends negatives comments ! "Ill give you 2 weeks lasting", "Gross, thats disgusting", "Dont you know how much baby need changing"
Which just makes me want to have total success with them !!
So, I want to use from Day 1 and was planning to use muslin cloth with a wrap till big enough for something else.
My question is how long would I do this before I either choose a shaped nappy (thinking tots bots) or maybe Terry Squares and what size wraps/nappies should I get and how many in each size ?
Would I need around 5 extra smalls for when using with muslin cloth and then around 5 smalls for early shaped nappies/terry squares and when do I move to medium, approximatly how old will the baby be ?
I have seen some super cute Wee Notion wraps/nappies but dont want to spend lots only to use for a couple of months, want to wait till she can wear for a slightly longer duration as quite expensive but so cute !!
Also Ive seen cute nappie colours/prints but then you need to cover them with a wrap which seemd to defeat the purpose of a cute print on the nappy (talking about 2 part system) Is that right ? or do you ever use a 2 part nappy without a wrap.
Sorry for long message and questions.
Any advise truely welcome
