Hi, totally new to cloth and a bit

Postby Akd12 » Tue Nov 27, 2018 2:26 pm

Hi, am a total cloth novice, I’ve been dithering for ages and ummming and ahhhing about it, so decided to take the plunge and have bought a mixture of different types of nappy - both pocket and AIO - have stuck to one size nappies as I have an 18m boy and 4.5m girl so I’m hoping they can share? Is this bonkers?
Is a total of 28 nappies enough for both kids?
Been doing a lot of reading but only found this forum today!
Husband thinks I’ve lost my mind

I think you'll just have to try the nappies and see what works for your children, I kept the stash from my boy for baby #2 and some of them just didn't suit her at all. This time I'm starting again and I've gone for the nappies that worked on both kids in the hope they will work for #3 I've got lots of OS nappies but also some sized as our one size didn't fit right away and they also don't fit as long.
Have fun in your cloth journey though, once you find what works you'll be fine :D

Good on you for taking the plunge - I'm sure you wont' regret it - even if it can take a while to bring hubby and others around :giggle: The only thing I ever regretted was not trying them on my first born (not that there were that many cool nappies around 17 years ago!).

Sounds like you have made a great start to your collection, I always advise people to try out different styles rather than trying to buy a big set of one type. I see no reason at all that you shouldnt' be able to use OS nappies on both - not bonkers at all! Large toddlers (over say 2.5) and very small babies can have fit issues with OSize but your 2 should be fine. They'll be different shapes and you will perhaps find one style fits / suits one of them better than the other. I'd say 28 is fine to start, will let you try it out and you may decide to get more of some or even try different ones once you've used them for a little while. You'll also be able to work out what washing / drying suits you so you can work out how many you'd like and add to your collection as you need to (or eventually if you get a bit mad like some of us want to :giggle: ).
