Unfortunately, the toddler twosome are drinking so much water now that they have been consistently wetting through their disposable nappy overnight. I decided to try the bamboo pads that i have had lying around for ages as a booster. They are working really well. I have tried overnight cloth nappies but they are just so bulky and take sooo long to dry that i would need a lot of them so i decided to compromise…
Really, in all honesty i can say that i am happy with my decision to stick with cloth nappies even though it has indeed meant a lot more washing and folding…..i enjoy thinking about the money we save and i love to see those little padded bums running around…..i have no idea why some people try to make nappy bums look smaller….i think they look like they should…very cute!It can actually be relaxing to sit at night with a cuppa and fold nappies….the MCN’s really only need the pads to be inserted and a liner on the top so pretty quick!
They can be expensive when you are building up a collection…especially enough for twins but i managed to get most of mine second hand and they are still working well! I also love my little squirt sprayer which is so handy for rinsing soiled nappies into the toilet. With twins it does mean putting a load of nappies on each day but hey…what’s one more load of washing!!I think the initial outlay is still so much cheaper than buying disposable nappies each week until toilet training age!
Have you ever had to explain using cloth nappies or justifying the extra work i wonder, or is it just because i have twins that people are so vocal? I’d love to hear your cloth nappy experiences!
Well…nap time over by the sound of it…..i just wanted to share a couple of photos that made me smile this morning…we are so lucky to be able to spend our mornings outside playing!
Thanks for stopping by…..have a lovely weekend
