Any mummies using cloth nappies on your new born? There are pros and cons and I'll like to hear from you experience mummies. Please share.
i would like to use cloth nappies for my coming baby too but problem is during confinement, cannot touch too much of water so cannot wash the nappies...Guess no choice must wait till after confinement then let her use cloth nappies ...
i think i wil be using nappies for my baby!
infinity88, get someone else to wash for you temporarily during your confinement?
but dont think anybody will be washing .. mother in law does not wash clothes all these while.. though she is doing confinement for me but dont think she will wash nappies for me..
Am planning on using cloth nappies too.. since I would be staying home, can save the $$. Also the baby would be having a more "breathable bum"
Watched both my nephews use nappies as babies too. Only drawback I guess is the MASSIVE washing. Dreading that big time!
Any particular nappie brands to recommend? I noticed some are smoother than the other..etc..but not sure which brand.
I bought the annaku one... Very thin in my opinion. Have not tried, so not sure if thin is good.
Yea.. been looking for reviews on anakku products.. yet to find much.
i used cloth nappies for my 1st born at home for about 4mths. Changed to disposable pampers when outside. SUsequently i used cloth diapers(washable) when he outgrew the nappies. Yes, need a lot of washing by someone, i had a helper then so not so bad. The record was 24 pieces for 1 day (he kept pooing, urinating and it was raining heavily so can't dry fast). For the twins that are coming, i also intend to use cloth nappies for a start, can save cost. I think cloth nappies better, more airy.
A lot of folding too! haha..
Do you mummies use diapers at night?
Am a mom2b.. due in august, so can't answer that Q..
Both my nephews however used nappies through the night too.. Although you'd have to wake up often to check if baby's soiled.
I personally used nappies before but revert back to disposables ones. I used them becoz i wanna air baby's buttocks. Used them from about 9am to 6pm then rest of the time use disposable. But I was then calcuating, 9-6 the most i use 3-4 disposable if 3 hourly change. The cost will be about 4 x $0.25 = a dollar a day. but the effort using nappies, changing, folding, washing and not forgetting the cost of nappy liners, water, electricity and effort and time to wash and soak... sigh... in the end, i surrender to disposable ones...
My baby can sleep better too... not like when he use nappies, i disturb his sleep always once he pee as I think its very wet and sometimes aircon room may feel cold.... esp when he is a light sleeper.
but must take more care and not be lazy to apply barrier cream and wash his genitals more frequently.
ya. i read somewhere must wash a few times.
my house air-con dead many mths . hahah im more worried my baby gonna sweat bigtime. lately sembawang soooo warm!
haha. first time being mummy here. and am quite ignorant to all this stuff cause of my age.
but my mama insist on using nappies instead of pampers. and my papa just told me the other day, when baby come out, dont buy pampers, use nappies. his reason is, cause newborns are quite 'soft'. use nappies would be better til baby grows more stable and 'harder'. if not baby legs will like open open cause of the pampers? dont know how true is that but sounds quite logical. and i guess its better to listen to them cause after all, they're the experienced ones.
however. i guess the main reason for people to use nappies is to save cost.
will be following my mama's advice for my precious. cause i really have no idea on how to take care of a newborn. and mama has bring up me n my brother, strong and healthy. guess some of the olden 'tricks' really works. me and my brother has super strong bodies. we dont fall ill at all since young. even if we do, we dont go to the doc and in 2days, we're fine again. can eat junks, play in the rain, all sorts of rubbish. really hope my precious can be like us, with good strong bodies. it hurts so much seeing others baby fall sick already, let alone own baby..
precious jovier landed 26th june o9.
