Nisha I remember you saying way back that your hubby might not go for cloth. I thought you or he might be interested in this article.

Thanks for that article m'dear!

Im going to give a few cloth nappies a go when the baby comes and see how we go, at least for home use anyway. Im not expecting my Mum or my MIL to change cloth nappies as they are both used to disposies.

Might have to invest in a few of those Snappy Nappy fasteners to make "pinning" a bit easier. I still cannot see him folding up a nappy correctly and am envisioning leaky nappies! But i could be wrong!

Haha!

I did a little folding-training + quiz on my husband the other day with the flat terrytowelling nappies, and I could just see the leak potential of his tragic methods!

So he will be allowed to stick to the fitteds and all in ones - VELCRO and PRESS-STUDS, no pins for him!

It might be worth iinvesting in a couple of fitted nappies to make things easier.

Oh dear ladies, thankyou for the giggle!! laugh.gif

I've been sitting here reading this thread imagining my gorgeous Luke attempting cloths and it's just made my day! I can picture poo and wee all over the walls and my bubbin's little legs and feet, Luke waving a dirty nappy in one hand and a quickly unfolding clean nappy in the other, wipes and cream flying in all directions, screaming for me to come and help him... and of course I would just be standing back laughing : ) yahahaaa!!

Not to mention Josh crawling down the corridor, his nappy gradually making it down to his ankles along the way... oh my, he would LOVE that!

Oh dear yes, my Luke and cloth nappies, I really should try that....

Now ladies,

You never know until you give the guys a go. Rick, yes, MY Rick, is the one who does most of the nappy folding in this house. He also changes Adara's nappy about half of the time and always has. The only time he really stuffed up is when I bought some fitteds and he didn't realise they needed a pilcher over the top, as we have a stuffable that doesn't.

So, you know, if Rick can....

(and yes, he also prefers cloth to disposables)

Cheers

Di

Yes we really should give our guys more credit.

I was really only kidding about mine (hey he DOES have Korean blood he should be great at origami!). There's no reason why I should be any better at cloth than he is. I suppose at the moment he just hasn't looked into it as much as I have.

Yeah let's drop the 'mere male' thing and say GO HUSBANDS on the nappy changing, folding AND washing!

Just have to add here that Shane definately prefers cloth over disposables.
Like Rick, he even does most of the nappy folding and probably half of the changing! (although none of the nappy washing, LOL!)

Nisha, just with the pins/clips, at the moment we are just using Velcro covers for the nappy, no pins, clips or anything, the cover holds the nappy in place, and we havent had any leakages at all yet.

I wondered how you guys were getting on with cloth!

I might try your way with the velcro covers (and no clips) - what a good idea!

What fold are you doing for Ethan?
