Came to a decision today

Postby monsterm » Sat Aug 13, 2011 10:58 am

We have come to the end of our cloth nappy journey. I've been persevering with it for a few weeks now. She is filling her nappies in one wee & more often then not, it is leaking & leaving a massive puddle on the floor too. I think it is too late to be replacing all her day nappies with heavy wetter night nappies & tbh I can't afford to do it either. So I came to the decision that she is 2 today so it's a good time to stop & reduce my washing a bit.

I'm a bit :cry: today because I love cloth but I think we've made the right decision for us. Also my baby is no longer a baby so I'm really feeling it :cry: :cry: Hopefully she will be potty trained very soon because I hate adding to landfill, she is showing all the signs just need to get her to pee on the potty. Anyone know how to stop the nappy ticker counting?

:hug: :hug: To change your ticker just click on edit and enter a date under "date your child stopped using cloth nappies."

:hug: :hug: :hug: I'm rapidly coming to a similar decision. I'm changing Dexter at least every hour at the moment and we're still getting caught out with leaks and wet clothes :-?

:hug: tbh this is one of the reasons I started PT DD. It took 5 weeks but she's now fully dry in the day. Might be worth a try.

That's exactly what we are like Allie. It's so frustrating but it's just been getting worse & worse.

We are going to start potty training proper on Monday before dd1 has to get back to school so hopefully we'll get there.

Thanks for the hugs ladies & thanks Louise for telling me how to stop the ticker counting. The ticker has stopped counting now. 3570 wow :shock: It's nice to be able to have it there still though.

We are starting to PT Max on Monday too for this very reason. He has gone from a really light wetter to soaking through everything in about an hour. I'm not going to change a whole stash when he could be potty trained (just the manufacturing/shipping emissions wouldn't make it worthwhile for a month or two).

:hug: :hug: I stopped putting Sandy in cloth a wee while ago for the same reason, but after two or three weeks I reverted back to them, I missed them and I hated shelling out for sposies, they are so expensive! I'm having to change every hour and a half but it's not so bad.
