If you want warning off the disposables you should know that there's not really any such thing as an "eco" disposable, since all our rubbish goes to landfill which is anaerobic so things don't degrade. Unless you are going to compost them yourself, you might as well buy the standard ones and save your cash. Not that I'm against disposables when you need a break or to regroup, but I just think that the eco thing is a bit of a con........
i agree about the landfill thing but i wont use pampers/huggies etc due to the horrible chemicals in them that arent in the 'eco' ones, that goes the same for the wipes, they have some nasty stuff in which apparently is ok for babys
i really wanted the pocket/aio's to work but they leaked, we're just using reusable wipes, i will try again though so clothes will fit but at the moment everything seems much harder than it is sleepsuits and cloth nappies really dont mix well lol
