I don't have a tumble dryer and the vast majority of Blythe's nappies are pockets with microfibre inserts, which dry overnight on an airer in a warm room. I think we haveonly 4 bamboo or cotton fitteds with another on the way.I do have bamboo boosters, but more than I need so that there is always one dry for the night nappy. I think the key is to have a mixture, if you have a handful of quick drying nappies you can always guarantee that something will be dry for the morning.

I've got some 'emergency' microfibre inserts so I can stuff Fluffles with those if nothing else will dry as Fluffles dry amazingly quickly :D

Have you tried putting an airer in your kitchen as kitchens get hot from cooking which is handy if it's miserable outside but still too warm to put the heating on. If all else fails a quick tumble every now and then won't hurt or else use it as an excuse to buy more nappies :giggle:

I think I will buy an airer thing to go on the radiator in Oliver's room for the bamboo ones when the heating is on in winter.

I'm just going to have to plan carefully when I buy more nappies to ensure a range of fabrics...

We've got two radiator things my mum got us from tescos in sebs room and a ceiling airer downstairs over the fire.

On the most miserabalist rainest week last year I just washed nappies myself and dropped all our other washing (nearly 2 weeks :-? :oops: ) at the launderette before nine and it was all clean and dry and back to us by 5...such a relief! :giggle:

I've always thought if i got really desperate I'd either iron them or use the driers at the launderette but never have as yet.

Whats meant we've never run out is having pockets with twice as many inserts because the pockets dry in a day indoors whatever and it doesn't matter if the inserts aren't dry if you have lots.

I have avoided bamboo like the plague :lol: although we do now have some ittis but the snap ins are taking two days...I've only got them cos dh like them :)
