    oh hai!

    maz - I remember dealing with a poo backlog when I was nannying. It was everywhere, this kid who wouldn't poo at childcare, where she was for two days in a row before I had her. So every Wednesday, WHAM! Grosssssssss. Your new ticker is uber cute.

    I am inches off making some prefolds, and the only thing holding me back is deciding what combos of fabric to use. I have a boatload of bamboo to use, but it's not snappi-able. So was thinking about putting some terry on there for snappis - maybe in a sort of "T" configuration on the back? That way the folded in bits that touch the but would still be nice absorbent stuff, but there's still plenty of snappi-space. Perfect for DH, a total nappy noob.

    This has become particularly important after using some Coles nappy pins through the week on the baby dolls at work - they are wearing face washers as nappies at the moment, and pinning is just such a pain in the hole! Although maybe it's the cheapo pins, I dunno.

    So that works? Awesome. Was sort of wondering if it might. So in that case I might do just bamboo inner with flanno backing.

    I'm also knocking up some cloth wipes at the moment, out of whatever bits and pieces I can find...

    OMG Kat were have I been living (under a rock) your on IVF number 2 OMG OMG OMG hon...Im so happy that its now for you.

    Just be careful with just popping on the prefold with a cover...I did that and the whole dame thing fell of and yepa...poo everywere mind you I mustnt have had the cover on tight and chicken legs dont help (fat rools keep covers and nappies in place )

    Prewashing bamboo today so I can make some more trifolds for tanks nappies....its working so much better for us

    You would be able to use snappis if you use flannel though wouldn't you? I think that would work well, with the inner third being bamboo for the absorbency.

    I need more wipes too. There will be no more nappy action here till mid September when I finish my placement (which starts tomorrow). I've bought a dozen fitteds and 1/2 dozen flats second hand and I think that will be enough (along with current stash). Will inventory in Sept and start sewing then as I'll have more spare time.

    3 little kissaluv fitteds (green, peach & yellow)... they are so little! And soft

    i went and picked up my new bbh hemp nappies today. the girl had found another hemp nappy by the time i got there plus also had 2 dyed hemp ones. i could only afford the first 2 today but told her if she cant sell them then let me know and i will come back and grab them!!! she was sooo nice. she gave me a bum g and haute pocket to try for free also. the bum g looks like its never been used. it came with a microfibre insert. how absorbant is that? or should i use a bamboo insert in it? also the inserts that came with the haute doesnt say whether its bamboo or microfibre. does anyone know?

    I recommend switching to a bamboo insert with for the BumG - mircofibre is absorbant but no where near as much as bamboo - you'll need to change nappy before too long if you use the mircofibre one only.

    ah ive finally got around to posting again! atm im being uber slack & still using mainly sposies, cloth has seemed too hard.
    BUT i am going to be motivated as of tomorrow. but wondering how u guys manage/d night changes? do u keep the nappy bucket in the bedroom/bathroom or something rather than going thru a freezing house to the laundry?
