Early on in my pregnancy I made the decision to use reusable nappies instead of disposables. I’ve never really considered myself a eco-warrior or a hippy, crunchy mummy type but there is something about reusable nappies that makes me super happy.

It’s the cute prints; the money-saving; the feeling of building up a collection; the fact that I won’t be putting harsh chemicals next to my baby’s skin… but mainly it’s the fact that it is something else to get a little bit addicted to. And trust me… it’s addictive!

I’ve been building my stash slowly throughout the last few months; taking advantage of pre-loved facebook sites, sales and discount codes to make sure I never pay full price for a nappy. I’ve tried to gather a selection of brands too as I know that all babies are different and what suits one baby may not suit mine. My collection so far includes:

3 x Totsbots Teenyfits (V4 brand new)

6 x Totsbots Easyfits (V4 3 pre-loved, 3 brand new)

3 x Totsbots Bamboozle Stretch (2 pre-loved, 1 brand new)

4 x Totsbots Stretchy Wraps (1 pre-loved, 3 brand new)

2 x Bambino Mio Solo (brand new)

4 x Bambino Mio Pre-folds and 2 x wraps (brand new)

5 x Bambooty Basics (brand new- look at that pineapple nappy!!)


As I put away the final lot of nappies (washed, dried and stuffed) last night I started thinking towards the future. I don’t know what it’s going to be like being a mummy. I have these vague ideas and expectations but I don’t think they even come close to the reality. I might use cloth for a week and hate it… I really hope not! But until baby fordham pops out (because it’s that easy right?!) I’m going to enjoy looking at my little stash and pondering how life will change in just a few short weeks.

I’ll keep you updated once mr/miss is here with how we get on with our cloth nappies. Wish us luck!!

    Just came across your post, how did you get on using cloth ? I love cloth nappies and have used them for 1 1/2 years, last 8 weeks on two babies, a toddler and a newborn. Congratulations on the birth of your baby ( checked your other posts)x

      Hi! Thanks for the comment! We have tried a few newborn nappies but we aren’t in cloth full time yet as he isn’t quite big enough for birth to potty nappies. Will do anupdate post once we are 🙂
