Beck- we have shipped to Australia before and never had any problems. We keep the postage as low as possible and any overcharges of more than 55p are refunded too.

If you really want to know about the number of nappies I have :?:
2 boxes of prefolds,
one box of terries,
two tots size 1,
one tots bamboozle size 2,
2 tots size 3 ( completely worn out but one of the first nappies I bought (second hand) and can't part with them)
one fuzzibunz,
2 bimbles,
one weenee,
one lollipop stuffie,
one clwt twt,
2 little lambs,
1 minki huggle in chocolate brown,
8 Imse Vimse shaped nappies- the kind that are really flat and have no elastic in,
35 mothercare shaped terries,
25 medium quick flips (ambers nappies in use),
4 prototype nappies which amber uses,
30 mini size quick flips ( arrons nappies in use currently),
2 prototype nappies which arron is testing for me,
30 small size quick flips which are ready for arron to move into,
4 large quick flips for amber to move into if she gets that big ( Naomi never outgrew her mediums and they still fit her at age 2.5)[/list]
wraps- amber has 2 massive wraps used at night,
2 NB classic wraps,
2 stripe fleece covered kiwi wraps,
1 strawberry shortcake green kiwi wrap (couldn't resist it LOL)
a pink kiwi wrap,
a red kiwi wrap,
1 bunny wrap,
and a christmas print kiwi wrap ( all in medium)

arron has 1 motherease small velcro wrap,
1 racing car kiwi
1 pink kiwi
1 blue kiwi
2 fleece covered kiwi (1 green, 1 yellow)
1 nursery print kiwi
1 cloud bear kiwi
1 red kiwi wrap
1 bunny print kiwi

(plus there is a box of about 100 quick flips ready for the sunday market. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: )

and I have a box full of prototype and trial nappies that didn't quite make the grade. Including a rather comical affair consisting of a prefold cut and shaped, elasticated and covered with bright yellow fleece LOL. Used the wrong fleece on it and it worked like a sheet of plastic..... You certainly live and learn.
One attempt was a prefold cut and fixed with Robs old trackies tio give the nippa something to grab onto :oops:

I did have more nappies than this but I sold some on ebay the other week. I like to have a large box each for Amber and Arron as I only wash them every other day ( the nappies I mean not the babies )

So can anyone beat me LOL?

Ok ladies my collection is a little bit small compared to all of you but in my defense we have only been using cloth for about three months now, and I still wash everyday!

We have:
4 fuzzi bunz (1 is on the last popper)
4 bamboo baby beehind
1 hemp baby beehind
5 rainbow tots
3 cushie tushies

Obviously I have heaps on my wishlist, now all I need to do is convince my dh that they are a necessity- lol.... :lol:

LOL Sam, thats brilliant, you can do lots of shopping, I'm jealous lol!!! I make sure I come home and tell DH about how much I spotted dispos for in the supermarket and say things like 'I saved 18 euros today NOT buying a packet of dispos!!'. I also regualry make the observation that 1 week of dispos = 1 new nappy :D , I'm trying to limit myself to 1 a month now!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hehehehe Tory...! Isn't it great all the things we say to get around the fact that we want to spend more money on nappies. At the moment my excuse is that I will be a happier mummy if I only have to wash every second day not every day! Eventually I think I'll run out of reasons and then we will have to have another baby (gotta buy smaller sizes of course).

Aaaahhh it's so nice to feel like everyone understands my addiction! Yay! :D

Sam to be totally honest it would do my head in having to wash everyday it really would, and think of all the extra money your spending over time on electricity and water!

I try to wash only ever 3 days which works out as a perfect machine load (and my nappy bin full!!) and that is just perfect as its only a couple of loads a week.

Have you spotted the 'whats your favorite ........ ' posts in the pockets, wraps and fitted sections, love to hear which of you like best!

I will defo let you know if I order any more g's
I have been thinking that I might need to order the next size up. Charlotte is comfortably in the mediums which say they do to 26lbs but she is growing so fast, I think she is about 21lbs, having put on about 3lbs in 2 months, but has just started crawling so I don't know if it will slow down a bit now.
So if I do order more I will let you know.
