    Talking My Dad's cloth nappy adventures

    My mum was working yesterday, so my Dad looked after Natalie while I went to the physio. I wasn't thinking and forgot to leave out a pocket for him to change her into, and I was gone a lot longer than I'd expected. Of course, she had a pooey nappy which he generously looked after for me - washed out the liner, mopped up the nappy (what a guy!). When I arrived home, she was asleep in his arms, her shorts we saturated and his t-shirt was too. He said, 'I got one of those purple liners and put it inside one of those nappies from the pile in her cupboard...' I replied, 'Great, Dad. Thanks so much. Sorry you have wee all over you...' and I tried not to laugh as I looked up her shorts and saw he'd only put a fleece cover on her and no nappy (but he remembered to put a liner in!). Bless him. He gave it a go

    hehe he's a fantastic granddad. Have you given him a little lesson so he doesn't get peed on next time?

    What a wonderful dad / granddad. I think Santa needs to leave him a something extra in his stocking this coming week!

    He he. I know, he's a champ... It was unexpected because he's one of those Grandfathers that gives baby to Grandma as soon as she starts to cry
    I didn't teach him... I'll just be sure to leave a few out ready for next time (if there is a next time, LOL!) as my nappy stash is... um... eclectic and DH is still struggling to get things right

    YAY Poppy.!! What a good try he did.

    My dad would have no idea when it comes to these MCN's. Flat's I "think" he'd be ok with and sposies he's fine with.

    LOL Trish, I was saying to myself, surely I was in cloth when I was a baby... But then, he probably never changed my nappy PMSL!

    My DP took off a MCN the other night. He replaced it with a sposie though. LOL. It's a start I guess.

    thats so cute ... my dad is a tech man i am sure he would pull it apart and work out how it all works (he does have young kids though) he rolled his eyes when we put T in flats saying what a waste of time it was
    my mum on the other hand looked after T and put a sposie on back to front
    then there was jades mum who decided T was ready to be toilet trained at 15 months when she looked after him for the night ... i came home to a huge pile of wet and pooey pants wet patches n all the chairs and allover the floor and his carseat !
