In less than three weeks we will have two babies under two, meaning I’ll have two in nappies. Between nappies, wipes and food our weekly budget has been stretched to the max and Joe is working every hour god sends to keep us above the bread line and live somewhat comfortably. We have made some huge decisions over the past few months, one being converting to cloth nappies when little miss arrives. I’ve never cloth nappy before so I’m a complete novice and looking forward to converting.
We will be working with Bambino Mio on our cloth nappy journey. Yesterday a hamper of Miosolo all-in-one cloth nappies arrived. They’re one size nappies with adjustable Velcro fastening and poppers, that grows with your baby from birth right through to potty training. Modern cloth nappies are not what you’d expect, they basically look like a disposable nappy except in cloth. They’re super slim, soft and the prints are adorable.
These Miosolo nappies are lightweight, machine washable, tumble dry safe and they have a unique pull-out tab system for improved washing performance and quick drying. They have a stretchy water-resistant outer fabric that comes in loads of beautiful designs, they also have a stay dry inner layer and a concealed super absorbent core.
There are so many benefits to converting to cloth nappies:
- After the initial investment cloth nappies will save you a fortune
- Cloth nappies are soft and chemical free
- They’re super cute and there is so many different designs and adorable prints to choose from
- They hold their value, so you can sell them when you are finished if you look after them
- Disposable nappies make up 4% of landfill waste making cloth nappies environmentally friendly
Over the next few months I’ll be documenting our cloth nappy journey, everything from savings, Joe’s reaction, laundry, drying throughout winter and the staining. I’m really looking forward to our new little adventure and being me I don’t have the patience to wait for little miss to arrive to try them out so here’s Frankie modelling our first cloth nappy. I could just eat him!
