    Before long you'll be using the washing basket because you cbf getting them sorted 😂

    I have a drawer for them and then a bucket to dry pail them. I try to alternate them so they get even wear.

    And my day has finished with a quick run to chemist warehouse to get mini sized toiletries to go in my hospital bag

    Mrs tugs and rainbow road.

    Interested that you are using cloth nappies? You don't hear that much these days. How did you guys come to the decision??

    Meshell, sounds like you have been productive!!! We have friends staying in our spare room (future nursery). They leave next weekend and then the nesting will begin!! I've been itching to start the last couple of weeks, so looking forward to next weekend

    I'm using cloth too :-)
    I will put in my reasonings:
    a) I have super sensitive skin so anticipating bubs will be the same. Hoping cloth will be kinder to her skin
    b) price. I bought all of my nappies (65) 2nd hand. They are in great condition and will hopefully last til toilet training - cost me $320. I have enough to only wash every 2nd or 3rd day so energy/water use shouldn't be too much
    c) Eco friendlier. Although some say with the water and energy usage they aren't that much more eco friendly at least it reduces landfill
    d) looks. Crazy reason I know but some of those nappies are just so damned cute!!!

    I used them with DS so I'll reuse his nappies. My reasons were:

    1) affordability especially if going through multiple kids which we will reap the benefit from this time

    2) sensitivity - I prefer the idea of natural fibres on my bub's bottom, I also use cloth wipes for that reason especially while little

    3) I don't work so the washing wasn't an issue

    Plus they're cute!

    Hahahaha, same reasons really

    Yes reducing landfill was another big one for me. Mostly it was affordability though, everything else was a bonus. I've got enough nappies to get through 2-3 days with a small baby without washing if I want.

    I do have disposables on hand for the odd occasion and once DS started sleeping through he wore disposables at night because I just couldn't find a night nappy that kept him dry until morning.

    Interesting! Cloth diapers never crossed my mind. Something to think about.

    What about changing the nappy when you're out and about? Do u just put it in a plastic bag and bring it home with you?
    Also, does storing the dirty nappies for 2-3days smell? And where do u store them?
