I was having a chat on Twitter with @Lebowski74 and got onto the topic of cloth nappies which prompted me to write this post. We all know having a baby is a very expensive business, but one way to not only save money but also save the environment is to use cloth nappies. I used cloth on my three and they have certainly moved on a lot since my childhood days of terry squares, pins, boil washing and plastic pants. I did choose to use terry squares because I found them to be incredibly versatile and they are also one of the cheapest options out there, but there are fitted, shaped, all-in-one, two part, coloured, patterned, you name it! Whatever your baby’s shape and size and what ever your lifestyle there is something to suit your family.
I think the one thing that has stuck in my mind is how much cloth nappying parents love nappies – there is nothing as satisfying as seeing a fairy baby bottom and a line full of nappies flapping in the breeze. I have never ever heard anyone say they love their disposables.
