I haven't used them. I don't like the idea of cleaning them, mostly because of the time factor but also because of the ick factor. I feel like I'm busy enough without having to scrape poop out of nappies and wash them. Plus I didn't like the idea of that going through my wash as well as DDs clothes. I aslo worried that if I hadn't kept up with the washing of them I might find myself running out right when I need them. Or how does it work when you go out?
seems like alot of work to me.
You don't wash them with poo all over them. You get rid of it first! You can just buy a roll of liners or use a chux, or make some fleece liners. they just catch the poo and you chuck it straight in the toilet.
technically,you are meant to get rid of the poo from disposable nappies before you bin them....but i have never met anybody that does. roll eyes
you are right, if you don't keep up with the washing you will run out when you need them. you either make sure you have an ample supply, rinse and wash with the clothes, let your bub have nappy free time while they dry,or use a disposable to tide you over. its not the end of the world. you find a way! besides you get into a routine and it doesn't happen often. it would happen if you have very few. you can also run out of disposables if you aren't organised!
when you go out you take some nappies and take a wet bag.i also take a lunchbox with damp wipes (water and olive oil)
very easy and not much extra work. besides, when it saves so much money its well worth it. its like takeaway is much easier then cooking but you cook because its a waste of money to have takeaway everynight.so even though theres a little extra work involved - people do it without thinking!
its maybe 3/4 extra loads a week.
