    Default I can't believe I have gone 3 days without a disposable

    except at night. Can't hurry these things.

    I have even been out 2 of those 3 days as well, and still didn't give into the convenience.



    And I was able to tell just from the feel/look when a change was required. Now I just have to convince DH that it isn't that hard to deal with when out (maybe tomorrow when we are heading into the city for the day).

    Now for a bit of advice, I was reading in another thread that if I have AI2's I can replace the absorber/booster if only wet. Am assuming that if the lining and shell don't feel wet, then this is when you could get a '2nd wear' from the nappy by replacing the abosorbers, or is this not recommended?

    Woohoo... Congratulations. It really isn't as daunting as it sounds is it?!

    With the AI2's - You can basically alternate with 2 shells over a day, airing the used shell in between changes. So start with shell #1, when you change it put the boosters in the bucket for washing, put the shell for airing, then put on shell #2 (and new booster), then with your next change you can use shell #1 again but with a new booster and so on - until soiled or just in need of a wash.

    I hope that makes some kind of sense Good Luck! It really is the easiest way once you get the hang of it!

    Makes for less washing Mel or rather for me the problem is space on the line/ not enough pegs

    Maybe I'm just a little weird Mel, I will only use every 2nd row on the line... to allow extra air flow (I do it with clothes to)

    I must buy more pegs... writing it on the shopping list now!

    I agree Maz, night nappies are even easier than day nappies IMO. I love my BBB and it lasts for Matildas 12-14 hours sleep and she never poos in it... perfect!

    Congratulations Skye
