... and cloth nappies it is! I've been umming and aaahing over this decision for a few months now, but
I we have decided to go for cloth over disposables. Hubs didn't really mind either way, saying helpful things like "well you're going to be the one changing the nappies so it's up to you. Hee hee." Yeah right. We'll see :-) A few of my close friends have used cloth nappies from day one, so there were plenty of sources to seek great advice from, whilst not having the pressure of them saying that I had to do it. Thanks guys!! You've been a great help.
And cloth nappies aren't what they used to be. We're going to invest in some of these types of nappies and have a few disposables on hand if and when needed. I'm actually quite excited about this venture, which just goes to show it is the right decision for us at this time. The most helpful thing that one of my friends said was that if you make it a part of your baby routine from day one, it doesn't seem like such a big task. And having a summer baby, at least for the first few month we won't have any trouble getting them dry!
I'm over 7 months pregnant now, and the reality of having a little baby soon is hitting rather close to home. I still feel like there's so much to do, but I also know that no matter how much or how little we do to prepare, it will be enough and we will manage. Littlefoot has been making some pretty extreme moves lately, getting ready to make his or her grand entrance into the outside world I'm sure. I can't wait to meet you little one!!
