i have prepared coolababy, a brand of cloth diaper produced in China, for my baby arriving in Nov. Heard lots of good comments from my friends and has compared the material with bumwear. felt that not much different with the material but it is almost half of the price of bumwear.
Hi Joeyz yes I totally understand what you mean.. My hubby is also self-employed and he has no benefits such as Annual leave, medical leave etc... when I gave birth he also never take leave, only time off work to help abit here and there.
But cant complain cos he gave me 3 supp cards for my & baby's shopping so I guess just gotta be understanding to our men
I used to change up to a dozen cloth nappies for my newborn because he peed alot and also cos I wanna keep him as dry as possible to prevent nappy rash last time.. but as he got slightly older things got better.. He pooed less and also pees less but just in larger quantity.

Actually, frm start, i'm already planning to use cloth diaper (at home) and diaposable (when going out) but mainly cloth diaper so as to save $$ as financial is very very tight now. I only got to knw about tis bumwear/insert frm tis thread. I would def luv to give it a try but way over my budget. Hoping to find some 2ndhand one to try out first. Tentatively, will use cloth diaper first. if anyone giving away their cloth diaper, I would like to have them.
At least your man still gv you 3 supp cards and i suppose he still bring back some dough$$ home, my man have not contribute to me & baby though he is trying very hard but it takes time (well cant blame him cos there's no sales yet), i've been using my own saving to pay for gnae, baby stuffs, hospital fee etc. At times, I work part time for my friend to earn some $$. As such, i need to thift n save esp for my little one. Wonder is there any job for stay home mum.
P.S. Are you a stay home mum as well? It feels good to talk to someone who understand my situation and somewhat been thur before.
My name is Rita and I run Bumwear. My youngest child has just been toilet trained and I have 20-25 diapers to give away to moms who dont't mind used diapers.
Some of the diapers have been used by 2 babies but there is still a lot of life in them as I do take very good care of my diapers. Some are newish. I will be dividing my used diapers into 4 lots to give to 4 moms and will be mixing some newer and some older diapers in them. First come first serve please :-) I will be leaving the dipes in my shop @ United Square for collection.
If you have any questions regarding cloth diapering, I'll be happy to answer them here. Thank you!

Joeyz, I can only leave it at the shop next Saturday (5 Sep 2009) as I'm not going to my shop this weekend (got to drill my PSLE boy :-)
OK, the first lot is reserved by Joey. I will divide up my cloth diaper stash to 4 lots. Mixed colours as I diapered both my boy and girl in them. I will also include inserts.
My shop address is #01-35 United Square. If you take MRT to Novena station, there is an underground link to United Square. My shop is just above the Cold Storage.
could you also please reserve a lot for me? much appreciateed
OK, second lot is reserved for k-mom. 2 lots left.
Ladies, I will give you 2 weeks to collect from my shop, ok. I will leave them from next Monday (31 August) to Sunday (13 Sep). Uncollected diapers will go to the next mommy in line.
thanks very much rita.
Hi, rita, can I have some of the diapers too? I dont't need the whole lot; I just want to have some to try out on dear daughter first before I buy.
So I prob can share one lot with another mummy?
yes you can. But can you find another mommy who wants to share with you ?
Hi Rita, i would like a lot too. Will collect them as stated.
Also, how long do we usually change the insert?
hi rita, 1 lot has about 4-5 diapers? If so, can i have 1 lot then?
My girl is 4 months soon and I was thinking of getting the pocket diaper (the one that can adjust as they grow older) for her. Right now we are using disposables, and because she sleeps through the night, we usually dont't change the diaper unless she wake up in the middle of the night or next morning.
Can I still do this with the cloth diaper?
The amazing thing is that you will find that in the morning, their bums and private parts are still dry even though the insert is soaking wet.
For breastfed babies, we normally use only one insert even for the night time.
I've decided not to intro cloth nappies for the time being.
YOu can give the lot to another mummy.
If they are still available, may I have 1 lot please?
I've a friend who's interested also. If there is still 1 more lot could you reserve it for her too? I will leave her name with you in PM
