DS (16m) has just started part time at a state nursery, it's a 3:1 child/staff ratio. We use all in one reusables (Bambino Mio Solo) which I thought would be ideal, but DH thinks it's not realistic to expect the nursery to use them. I admit they take a few seconds longer to put on than a disposable, but they're still the most faff-free reusables I've come across. For now we've been sending DS to nursery with disposables. I'm having a hard time with this, both from the point of view of spending money on the disposables and the environmental impact.
Does anyone have experience with using reusable nappies at nursery? Any tips, or advice to strengthen my 'case'?
We do it. We send our baby in with nappies ready folded and a wet bag. They are fine with it. We use Tots Bots easy fits which are in one piece so we don't need wraps. The fees include nappies so they ate saving money!
We asked this when visiting nurseries and it did vary. One supplied the nappies and would not have taken/used my cloth nappies. Others seemed perfectly willing. Do you think your nursery staff would be unwilling? (as it happened DH was still unemployed when I returned to work so he's now the SAHD so no direct experience here]
