Having said that, if you really want to get started I would think that, like most nappies, they will still work without washing - the waterproof bit still works as well - just be aware they will need changing more frequently as they will be less absorbant!
Maybe you could compromise and wash most of them, leaving a few unwashed for baby to wear for shorter times whilst waiting for the rest to dry?
The outers and small inserts will be dry in a couple of hours outside, so they won't take long! The larger inserts take the longest, but even these will be about 5-6 hours on a good drying day, so you could keep 3 or 4 nappies to wear whilst the rest are drying....
Hiya, Thanks for the responses. I had looked on the BG page but must of missed it. I've decided to be patient and wash them all before I use them. I thought that if there is a residue on them it might bother her skin so I thought I better had.
