Thanks for all the replies
I do think I would try and find a cheaper alternative next time, although my love for WAHM however pretty was more so for absorbency than anything else, as I have never found any other fitteds that have been absorbent. LLs do hold up well but its the velcro that puts me off, I wish they did them with snaps and then they would be the perfect nappy
Is there anything out there similar to LL with snaps? Was hoping Tots bots may have put snaps on their new Bamboozles but seems to only be the easyfits
DH hasn't said no to cloth but he said he doesn't see the point as its just more hassle and we will be constantly washing with a younger baby. I do the majority of nappy changes and all the nappy washes, although in the early days with Darcy DH did almost all nappy changes and washing etc. I think DH thinks its a bit of a faff, and would always reach for a disposable over cloth. I think if we kept our stash basic he would soon learn what was what and would be fine. I would love just to have a stash of easy fits so that he only has one thing to deal with but I would be reluctant to buy them after not getting on well with them with Darcy!
I think if Darcy had been a light wetter it would have been easier (and cheaper
) but she has been a power pee'er since about 9 months
The amount I have spent is bad I admit, but I have had so much trouble finding something that works. We only have a couple of custom nappies, all my other nappies were pre loved, and I also have tonnes of inserts which I use in wraps like a pre fold, so although we do have a few nice ones in there, I wouldn't say my spending is an 'issue', if I am just trying to find something that works, not trying to go out and spend a fortune on something that is going to be pooped in
and I do know of people who are much worse than me
I think if we had all the small nappies from Darcy it wouldn't be as much of a problem, but we are going to need to buy enough nappies to do up to about 20lb as thats the weight Darcy was when we started, so just need to work out the best way of doing it. I still think buying a load of LLs and a handful of wraps will be the best option, so will keep my eye out for some good deals and see where we go from there! I think I could sway DH if I make it simple and cheaper!
Thanks again for all your responses
