I've never really considered cloth diapers as an option before. Just wondering what the pros and cons of cloth diapers are as opposed to disposables? I Would love to get some insight on them before the little one arrives so I can make a decision on whether or not they would be right for me!

I would say the pro's and cons are pretty much the same if you ask me!! You have to be motivated to cloth nappy or it just won't work for you. You have to be prepared for the occasional leak, or maybe that one you buy just won't fit your bubba right or they might have to "grow into it"

Cloth nappies are expensive all in one go, but the savings you make in the long run are worth it!

Cloth nappying is proven to reduce nappy rash, Karma's not had iot once yet!! They are also lovely and soft and you can add boosters etc etc to make them last longer than a dispoable would.

The obvious positives being, they are more eco friendly, prettier to look at, not full of chemicals and are generally cheaper to use!!

Cons being - they are quite bulky and you can't just chuck them away so on long trips this might be an issue. They obviously need washing sooner rather than later so if you are nowhere with a washing machine for a few days your gonna be stuck with a sack of stinky nappies xD Lastly if you don't have a tumble dryer you will probably need more than you first expect as you will be washing AND drying them and some AIO types take a looong time to dry without a dryer. So you you'll need enough nappies to see you through til the others are dry.. And so you'll start the cycle again!!

Other than that I can't think of much else to add!

They are very rewarding though and you deffinatly think you are doing your bit when you use them Smile

ahh im torn as too whether to use them or not also!

its just the washing thing thats going to be hard haha seriously you should SEE the amount of washing my daughter has already then add max's and OH's AND nappies eek!

i do love looking at cloth ones though they are gorg! not to mention the fact harriets nappies leak EVERY NIGHT!! the stains are driving me crazy i think i should start pricing some up.

would it be bad to switch harriet to cloth ones? i find that sometimes her disposables cause her lines that look sore and rashes when shes teething x
