    baths - oh, that is interesting, I've never thought of dry pailing them... I use EarthPower, and the nappies are yellow if I don't put them in nappysan first.. Will try your method next week

    Whoa CeeCee! I've never seen anyone sneak in a post AFTER a thread has been closed before (last thread) LOL well done!

    Yep... dry pailing saves water too but using the bath water is an EXCELLENT idea.

    I also store my bucket/bin on the laundry bench top when my babies are mobile.

    Also buy the Drive or Omo in bulk ie 12kg and upward size boxes... workds out to be under $3 a kilo if you buy it on special... the cheapest i've got them was $2.40 per kilo at K-Mart last time they had them on sale. I never buy laundry powder from the supermarket anymore.... waaay too expensive in those tiny little boxes that would last our family about 1 week... a 12kg bucket or box seems to last us about 6-7 months.

    I use Dynamo, only thing that doesnt make Xander break out. I byu a 5L bottle from Kmart for $16.99, lasts me ages too bath

    What do you mean by dry pailing them? and what do you do when Niall has a really messy napy? just hose it down outside? what have i gotten myself into!!

    Ill prolly buy 24 nappies anyway, as Anneliese goes thru nappies at a shocking speed...and where do you get the fluffies from? I always have nappy san at home, i put in every load of washing i do.

    How do you fold them CC? does it make a different for girls and boys which was you fold them?

    When Niall has a really messy nappy I just rinse it in the laundryat this stage then put it in the bucket until I have a full load.... later after he starts on solids i'll hold the liner in the toilet and do a 1/2 flush. It's a shame that you have to use Dynamo... what about Omo Sensitive? That comes in 12 kilo boxes I'm sure... then I reckon you won't need to buy Napisan.

    I've folded the same for both boys and girls.

    I might look into it, i just have to be careful. I just hated using powder. Almost out of dynamo, will try omo tomorrow...

    The link didn't work, but thanks!
    OK, cloth nappies IK style:
    2 nappy buckets (one for just wet, one for pooey nappies)
    Aldi version of napisan (around $3, can't remember exactly)
    2 packets terries (had 4 packets of flannellettes, but we're moving to terries now)
    pins, Puppy Winks nappy snaps and two Snappis
    nappy covers - various
    snibs (for when they are littler, like Annaleise)
    couple packs chux wipes

    Now, my snibs came from the chemist and come in packs of 20 in 3 different sizes. The biggest size I don't like cos they are the side tie pants, not the front tie ones (like in the hospital). I reckon you could be in the second baby size, but it does no harm to get the bigger size (just tuck in the left overs) cos a size too small is useless.
    ALL my nappy covers have come from kids recycling shops (and 3 I got from eBay...weren't very good, though, except for 1). Most of them are the white fleecy numbers that have a sewn in insert backed with PVC and they velcro shut at the front. They cost me about $1 each, in different sizes - get a size up from the clothing size, cos I find the 00 ones are a bit on the squeezy side and the 0's provide good catching scope! My cotton covers were also from second hand shops, but they tend to feel wetter, sooner - not that the baby feels it, cos the nappy sits between the wetness and the skin...and now I'm going to do Bath's thing of my side tie pants over the terry THEN the cotton cover, for the ones that have proven to be a bit leaky.
    One of my nappy buckets was from the 2nd hand shop too ($6.50) and is the Infa brand. They only had one at the time, so I bought the second one new from Target (only cos Oscar was due that week and I had no more time to wait for the 2nd handers to get in another bucket!!). One of my packets of coloured terries was a gift from my SIL (she knew we were doing to do cloth), I have 4 borrowed white ones (and when I get another pack I'll give GF back 4 new ones, cos she's TTC right now...well, not RIGHT now...ewww...) and my packet of 12 Big Softies came from eBay for a big $26.95. You can also get terries from Nappyland - they have a website and there should be one in driving distance from you. Otherwise, they do free delivery with at least one box of disposables, so you could order a box of sposies and get them to deliver the terries so you don't have to drive there. Their cloths are cheap ($29.95 for 12 terries) and they have the Puppy Winks snaps, too - but no snappis (get them from Kmart for $3.71 and they recommend having 2 or 3 in rotation - keep one in a nappy bag!).
    If you have an Aldi nearby then you can get their Di-San, but as Bath says, you don't REALLY need this if you want to cut corners - hanging nappies out in the sun will sanitise them and bleach out stains. I use it because I often will hang our nappies under the house if the forecast is dodgy.
    You can buy liners from various outlets. There are the ones that you just throw out (can get from Nappland for $2.49 for 100, Bi-Lo and online for biodegradeable ones), ones made from silk and a washable, other washable ones, fleece (is good cos the poo rolls right off, holds moisture away from baby's skin and you just cut up your own that you buy from Spotlight - mine cost me $3.50 for half a metre of cheap stuff!). Liners just save your nappies from a lot of that staining, so you have less work to do. I started to use Aldi brand chux cos they cost about 80 cents for 10, I cut them in half, fold them down the middle and place them in the nappy, over a fleece cut so that the chux cops most of the poo. I like to use these cos I get much more use out of them before they go to the landfill, rather than the disposable ones that you only use once. And when you're washing the nappies, it's not that hard to chuck in the rinsed chux as well. When I wash nappies and fill the rest of the bucket with fresh water (and nappies may have been in bucket, with Di-San, for about 2-3 days), pull out the nappies and give them a swish in the water to get rid of bits and THEN rinse the chux and fleece in the remaining water. Takes next to no extra time.
    Sounds like you should stick to the flats because modern cloth (whilst still cheaper than disposables long term) and fitteds (which still need covers etc) are a substantial outlay compared to the cost of flats. AND Bath and I find nappy folding to be a nice little 'me time' outlet! It can get hypnotic. And Cee Cee has that great fold for terries (which works well with pins BTW).
    Probably gone on a bit about it in this thread, but if I try to post it in the cloth thread, but the time I finish posting here I'll get distracted and will never get round to it!
    The spiel you get about cloths and disposables adding up cost-wise is inaccurate because they base it on using hot water (oh, yeah, we use cold water, with an Aldi brand washing powder - DP prefers the one with phosphorous cos it's 'concentrated', but the phosphorous free one is a couple of dollars cheaper, contains a kilo more and I'm using about the same scoop size per wash anyway...), using a dryer, expensive washing powders. The water used for a wash in a machine (even a top loader) doesn't cost that much at all and whilst you are using more water than with sposies, the making of sposies uses up infinitely more water (like any paper/pulp-based industry) on a commercial scale. Using cloths makes the water usage small scale and in direct proportion to need (as opposed to making millions of sposies in the hope that they will move off the supermarket shelves). So, I don't fall for the false comparisons anymore - when I use sposies I know the environmental cost (and don't use many for that reason), I don't use enough to justify the recycling service (which has been indefinitely suspended anyway). ANYWAY, you should be able to set yourself up with some cloths to start with for way under $200

    Wow, IK, what a novel!! But thanks so much, that was really informative... I buy the bilo nappy san, i rarely use my dryer (except on days like this, i dont have anywhere to hang it undercover atm. I think in some boxes of stuff i was given a long time ago i have about 2 or 3 nappyt covers with the velco on the front sides, so thats one thiing less i need... i'll prolly get some plastic covers as well, are those snappy things the sort of t-shaped things that you hook into the nappy instead of using pins?
    What have i gotten myself into? lol

    Sorry for the epic, Simone! I like the idea of the bath water, too - going to try that next time I have a bath (we had our first poo in the bath incident yesterday BTW - what an initiation!).
    Cloth nappies seems complicated, but, really, when you have a good system going it's a piece of cake (well, poo) - it keeps itself going. AND it's fun Being that Annaliese is the youngest and the only girl (for now), it will be nice to do cloth for her - a gesture for her because the boys take a lot of your energy away from her, that's how I would think of it, anyway
    Snappis, yep, they're the T shape with teeth that grab the terry fabric (that's why they don't really work on flannel). They're pretty cool, but they don't last as long as snaps or pins because they are rubberised and will perish/lose elasticity.
    Gotta go do a big shop - been avoiding it for days!

    I used to have some clothies laying around for emegencies, but never really used them. I really want to do something for Anneliese, i dont know why. And lately i have become alot more enviro conscious-throwing my bath water on the lawn (and i'll be using it for my nappies too now!!) using the grey laundry water to flush the toilet, or making sure i only use the half flush. And i didnt realise how many sposies were used each year... i just want to do something, even if it is only little.

    Im heading off now, must go shopping (like IK, i have put my big shop off for nearly a month, and although ill leave that for tonight when i can leav the kids at home with DH, i need some things now!!)

    TTFN girlies, talk to you later

    and IK i forgot to add... wait til they are older and you have a poo in the bath incident... it is just wrong. i make DH clean the bath-i can clean up after they puke, i can do anything else, i just hate poo in the bath. I dont know why. And i didnt mean the novel comment in a bad way, just mean it would've taken you a while to type!!

    REALLY gtg, talk to youse later :P

    Leave? Simone, you're leaving us for a few hours? NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Oh, ok, go ahead...
    Hope you find some 2nd hand shops in your area to help you out (just don't blow your money on the cute 2nd hand outfits they ALWAYS have in those places!).
    Yeah, poo in bathwater, we're just talking breastmilk for now...I've got about 3 months left of harmless poos out of Oscar. Reminds me, someone at last night's dinner, after a feed said Oscar had a poo. I asked why and she said she could smell it. I said it wasn't possible cos I didn't feel it (I was holding him in my lap) and that he can't smell cos he's not on solids yet - people who have had kids (and don't have a newie on their hands) forget that little nugget (so to speak!) of information because the breastmilk poo is a blip in the life of a child, I suppose. Why must time march on?? I want to have a bonsai Oscar!
    DP got the sewing machine out to do a job on his turnout gear...now it's out...must be used...no excuse...but first, the shopping!

    Afternoon all - glad today finds all a bit better. And big hello to Sara - sorry you had to join us on such a bad day yesterday.

    I am firmly in the disposable nappies camp, but totally aware that it is having enough $$ that allows me to do that. We tried nappy service clothies when Flynn was younger but I didn't like the way he was so wet all the time. Then we discovered My Planet recycling who USED to recycle nappies for $4.50 a week (they would collect em once a fortnight) BUT now they have suspended their service!! There go all my tree-hugger good intentions! I can only hope they come back on line soon.

    Bath, like the story about your name and LOL about Pippin. I really liked "Anakin" as a boys name (not that DH ever did) because only real star wars freaks like me would have twigged that it was Luke Skywalker's dad's name, but now with the "new" movies there is no way I would call a kid Anakin now (friends called their cat Anakin, though - it really suits him!)

    gotta go do some work.......

    Ahhh, Rory, that's where polar fleece liners come into their own! Take off a wet nappy and bits are dry, still with organic talc dry, too. But now I'm being smug Nah, I use both, but cloth where I can help it. Aldi disposables are just great.
    I still haven't gone to do my shop...I got distracted by my new Mothers Direct catalogue...and their sale starting tomorrow (might have to organise a drive to Malvern!)

    chit chat... there are only a few of us here today but geez we talk a lot!

    Simone, I will send you an email on how to fold nappies - if you give me your email address (then once I have it you can go back and edit your post and remove it).

    Rory - some kids are more sensitive to being wet so disposables are probably better for them, as Ally still poos like a million times a day I'm happy to use cloth... I was talking to my GF today and during our 30min call I had to change Ally 3 times as she had done 3 poos - so glad I was using cloth!

    I'm not sure how much cheaper it is, you can buy Baby Love nappies for around $40 for around 100. So, they cost ~ 40 cents each. If you use 7 per day it is $2.80 per day. If you spend say $100 on outlay for cloth it will take you 35 days before you are "even" then on the 36th day, and each day after you will save around $2 per day (assuming things like water,washing powder etc.. only costs $.80 per day). So I guess you do save a bit of money? if you needed to use a dryer, I'm sure any cost savings go out the window.

    oh, baby girl is up, must run...
