Subject:affordable pocket nappies
Time:07:49 pm
 Ive been using tots bots two part nappies up until now with my almost-12 week old baby, however i want to move on to pocket nappies as i find the tots way too bulky under his clothes now he's not living in sleepsuits.  ive tried fuzzi bunz and love them, but they are very expensive. i found some lovely looking pocket nappies on ebay and have bought one or two different types to try, one brand is baba & boo and the other is unbranded.  link to the baba&boo nappies on ebay - cgi.ebay.co.uk/3-Reusable-Cloth-Pocket-Nappies-6-x-Inserts-UK-SELLER-/160508993244

i just wondered, has anyone used the baba&boo pocket nappies? any good? and also, can anyone recommend a less-well-known/WAHM/etc brand of pocket nappy that are affordable, well fitting and funky?

Thanks :)

What are your favourite wraps for use with fitted nappies, particularly on new babies? So far I've tried tots bots flexiwraps (too high waisted for my liking), Bummis super bright (very neat fit, super cute, but the gusset wicks liquid onto the babygrow!) and Motherease rikki (my fave so far, but wish they were brighter coloured).

I've love to hear what others have found!

 What kind of cloth wipes do you use for your older babies?

My fleecy wipes are perfect for my 10 week old's runny poops, but not so good for my almost-3 year old.  The fleece just seems to... spread it around, lol.

What kind of fabric is good for getting to grips with toddler poops? Thanks in advance :)

Subject:n00b questions!
Time:03:55 pm
 Hi all! I'm brand new to this community and new to real nappies too, so just thought i'd pop in and introduce myself and ask a couple of burning questions :)

I'm Imogen, I have a 2.5yo son and am 37 weeks pregnant with my second baby.  We didn't use real nappies at all with my little boy but are planning on using them this time around. We don't have enough for full time use just yet but I figure its better to try a few different types before settling (and spending!).

At the moment, we have 12 Cotton Bottoms in the newborn size, and 8 Little Lambs in the first size.  I just have a question or two - 

1. In the instructions for the Cotton Bottoms, it says they require soaking in a bucket with the Nappy Bright solution - is this a necessary step, or just one of those things that you can bypass? We have a pretty good washing machine.

2. In the same vein, will the Little Lambs require soaking too? They're the cotton ones, not bamboo.  And I know this is probably a totally stupid question but do I need to use flushable liners in the Little Lambs as well as the soft, fleece liner? I'm assuming not, but the lady I bought them off of gave me two packs of flushable liners with them.

3. Is there a particular brand of wrap you would recommend for use with the Little Lambs? I only got two wraps with them and they're just plain ones; I'd love to get some nice bright coloured ones :)

Sorry if I sound completely thick, lol, it's just all very new to me!  Thanks in advance for your replies :)

ETA: Thank you all sooo much for your helpful advice and suggestions! Much appreciated! :D

Subject:Help! how do we start potty training?
Time:03:28 pm
DS is 27 months and I think we're all finally ready to start potty training in the next couple of weeks (when our new bathroom will be finished and we should have space to actually put a potty!) Ive done a bit of reading, including the No Cry Potty Training Solution, but now the time is getting closer Ive realised that I need a few more concrete ideas about what to actually do?!

We have had a little potty (do they come in different sizes? this one seems really tiny!) around for a while and very occasionally he will ask to use it - sometimes with a result, sometimes not - but he seems happy enough with the idea and singing songs while sitting on it. I have a sticker chart and stickers ready to use, and he is getting quite excited about the idea of wearing 'Big Boy Pants' instead of nappies sometime soon, but then I get a bit stuck...

Should we buy special cloth training pants or can we use our Swadlebees/fuzzi bunz pocket nappies with the poppers ready done up? Should we just go straight to pants instead? or try turning the heating up and going naked? What about trousers? And I guess dungarees are out for a while?

Then theres the timing, I always assumed that you made the decision to 'Do Potty Training' and stopped putting him in nappies full stop (not including naps and sleeping time). But i got 'Potty Training for Boys' from amazon this morning, and a quick skim through says that their method is to start with short sessions of an hour a day going back to nappy-using in between?

Of course googling for the answers is getting me completely lost in a maze of 'perfect solutions' and scary sounding methods and leaving me more confused than ever! Help!

Any actual methods and tips would be great, or suggestions of books/websites that are worth reading?


Apologies for the cross-posting, I wasnt sure which community (cloth diapering, Attached parenting, parenting 101?!) would be right so thought I'd try the lot :-)

My sister-in-law is due soon and she has eczema and had bad nappy rash as baby, so there is a chance her baby might have eczema too yet she's interested in using reusables.

Anyone with experience using cloth nappies on babies with eczema?
How can the nappies be washed sensitively? Or is she better off bothering with disposables?

PS. And pfft, I can't believe I asked way back in this community if cloth nappies should be different for baby boys! Though I do have my defences, having never seen what the baby boys were like...)))
