    I've got a little wet bag (zip up cloth bag that's lined with laminate so its water proof) and you just throw them in there and zip it up.

    For storing - apparently the more airflow the less the smell .. A laundry hamper style container is good. I've got a dog that would get into it all so I've got a bigger version of the wetbag to throw into a pail so poochy can't sift through and 'sample'. Also rinse nappies that have been used overnight to reduce strong wee smells.

    Oh and kristyj!! Such a cute pic! That nose! Those lips!! Eeeee!!!

    Default IVF Babies Due August/Sept/Oct'16 #2

    Yeah I just changed it out and about. I have wet bags made from PUL which is waterproof and smell proof when zipped, so I'd just pop in a bag and then wash when home.

    I dry pail in a bucket (no water) and I just put a sprinkle of bicarb at the bottom and it doesn't smell. I scrape poop off and rinse if necessary. I don't have to cover it with a lid either.

    I bought a metre of micro polar fleece online for $5/metre which I use as reusable liners because a) it makes cleaning a bit easier and b) it wicks moisture away keeping bottoms as dry as possible. If they were ever totally soiled and gross I would just throw the liner away.

    Once you sort out your system it's easy, I don't find it much harder than disposables at all.

    Edit: I store them in a drawer in her bedroom. I'll take a pic tomorrow for you to have a look

    It never occurred to me not to use cloth tbh. Our family has always done it (well let's be honest; every family has always done it save for the last two generations).
    It cost me $300 to get a stash bigger than I could ever possibly need, and I'll never have a constant expense of nappies to budget for.
    Obviously economic benefits are immense, but that's just an added benefit for me. Plus, they're so cute!!!

    I found this online tonight, I think I'll have a go at making it

    So Miss Zoe latched today for 3 feeds and took the bottle! So close to getting her without the tube! Another week I think it will be gone! She just needs to get the energy up to feed a full feed I am hoping my milk comes in with my iron infusion today and the fact she is latching so stimulating more! If I can't BF then least I know I have done everything possible! Cloth nappies isn't an option for me as the hospital doesn't support it... I am waiting for the thank you group nappies to come out! There going to be biodegradable and I'm happy to pay more to support a cause that supports charities! I bought the book to support the nappy fund drive! Also poo's return to normal within 7-10 days then they get constipated which we are currently going thru and I'm hoping that poo isn't one I have to change haha
    We are making the most of our journey so far but can't wait to be normal parents! We miss her heaps when home and honestly both feel a little like life hasn't changed much even though we are back and forth today I spent 12 hours at the hospital... My partner 3 hours(he was working otherwise)... Can't wait to hear of more births xxxx

    Barca I'm renting newborn cloth nappies for 6 weeks to see if I like them and which styles we prefer. I can pick them up a few weeks before my due date and the owner of the business will teach me how to use them. I won't use them at the hospital but will when I get home I hope. For me its mainly about reducing landfill. There are some awesome Facebook groups that are all about the best way to use and clean cloth nappies. They even tell you the exact instructions for your washing machine. Everyone I have told has said I will give up after a few weeks and go back to disposables - maybe thats true but I'd like to have a go.

    I used terry cloth in the hospital (they provided) then used up all the newborn Huggies I was given at my shower, then started cloth
