How long should a (pocket) cloth nappy 'live' for?

Postby Velvetsteph » Sun Mar 30, 2008 4:30 pm

Okay so 'scuse the odd title but if you bought a pocket nappy, how long would you expect it to last given normal usage?

I have a wahm one that I bought pre-loved (from the original owner and I remember when she bought it) and the elastic in the legs has gone - I turned it inside out to check and it's shredded! :evil: :evil: :evil:
I have another one by the same maker that I bought new and so far tis fine...

Now I'm thinking I could just buy some lastin and sew it on but it shouldn't have gone in the 1st place!! :roll:

DH tumble dried (cool setting) it twice but all other times it's been on the airer... The original owner has never tumbled it either.

What do you think? :? :? :? :? :?

Well I was thinking that but then again it was pre-loved!!

I've PM'd the person I bought it off to check when they bought it but I don't think the nappy is even a year old yet...

When I've got a reply I think you're right - I'll be emailing them :)

Well I've emailed the WAHM now as the nappy was new in September last year making it only 7months old - and was well looked after by both me and the original owner so it should most definately not have died!

Excellent news - don't really know how long I would expect a pocket to last but I guess 18 months to 2 yrs with careful washing / drying.
