We used cloth when Sam was in hospital when he was 2. I took itti's, it was an emergency admission so I didn't have anything else.the ward were great - all intrigued by his nappies and he spent all day (when he was a bit better) walking up and down the ward in his itti's and a vest with me following and educating the nurses and the other mums about cloth at the same time

I had Lucas in cloth from birth and the midwives kept bringing the other ones in to show off his nappies and they loved changing him! (I was stuck on the bed most of the night on a drip so they did all the changing)

I've never had to take any of them to hospital (apart from one trip to a&e with Nat) so just trying to get my head round it all and think through the logistics of nappies, wipes, all the bags we'll need with nappies, food, toys/books, etc. Lucas will be with us too so I'll need nappies/food etc for him too!

I wouldn't buy disposables, I would take him in cloth - as a pp has said, if they particularly want him in a disposable for any reason then they can provide it xx

If you want to use cloth then use it!

I used cloth when Christopher was in overnight when a few weeks old. Nobody had an issue with it. I stayed with him all the time as was breastfeeding.

Hope it all goes well x

DD had an op about 6 months ago, she wore cloth the whole time. I just made sure i changed her just before she went down to theatre, and put an extra booster in her easyfit just incase. As the others said the only stipulation was no metal.

Good luck with the scan :hug:

Go with cloth if they have a problem ask them to get you a disposable.

I work as a paediatric nusre and would be chuffed to see someone using cloth :widesmile: Has happened so far!

Good luck for the MRI :hug:
