OK thought I'd just give a quick rundown of where I am with my nappies. I'd post on the other bit but I couldn't find a category for all 3 nappy types to post in so I'll put it here, hope that's OK Tory! Will the board police come and get me?
Before I start, I've got a nearly 3 yr old (big un) and nearly 1 yr old (little un) boys.
I've been using cotton bottoms/ bambino mio, and motherease for nearly 3 years now.
They're all great, although cotton bottoms and bambino mio I think start to lose their benefit when the kids get bigger and are crawling/ running about. I'm just about on the last size for my little un and don't intend to buy any more. My big un doesn't like them, says they're uncomfy now (they are a bit stiff)
I've always loved my motherease, they are the belt and braces of the nappy world, never leak, fit from a newborn up to a toddler, must be the cheapest way to do washable nappies I'm sure (besides terry squares of course). However the endless poppers have finally got to me!!! Plus the fact they're soo bulky, and my big un often doesn't fit in his clothes because of them.
Anyway so all in all I was starting to fall off the wagon, the pair of them wore disposables while they were ill and I've struggled to get back into them. Then we did start wearing them again and the little un got his nappy rash back, so looks like he's allergic to wee
Sooo, after posting and reading on babycentre. I started to get drawn into the discussions on pocket nappies, people were saying how good they were, then I had a read on the internet and found out some were made specifically to stop the allergic reaction to wee! So I bought 2 swaddlebees. And I love them!! Bought 2 more! Love the colours, love how easy they are. I don't love how much they cost and how much they would cost if hat's all I had for 2 kids, but they are great. And I've stuffed them with cheap microfibre cloths from poundland and these are working fine
I have found they rubbed on the little un a bit on his stomach but he's crawling so when he's walking I imagine it will be better.
Wish I could justify buying them to use all the time but i can't part with my other nappies just yet.
Anyway that's me and my nappies!
