Using cloth nappies is something I’ve gone back and forth in my head about since before Arthur was born.
Now almost 17 months later, I wish we had invested from the start!
The reason we never did it was, it is such a pain to get stuff delivered here. Let alone expensive, and we had no idea where to start. We were worried we would not get on with them!!
Also, we already had no idea what we were doing with a baby let alone trying to get our head around all the options and decisions for cloth nappies too!!
However, looking back now, I am pretty cross at myself for not taking the plunge sooner.
It’s so hot and humid here, I think about just how much nicer it would have been for our little guy having all natural materials instead of plastic. I’m sure the disposables cause nappy rash because of the heat.
Of course, another benefit is how much cuter he’d looking roaming around in a little cloth nappy, there are such lovely colours and patterns available!!
Living on a small island, rubbish is an issue! Right now in Seychelles, rubbish is disposed in a landfill. Switching to cloth nappies would obviously be a way for me to lessen our household contribution to this!!
I am seriously looking at going down the cloth route now, I am not sure if it will make any financial sense now, but surely it will be better for Arthur?!!
If you have any advice or recommends about starting with cloth nappies for toddlers I’d love to hear!!
