Have just bought a fuzzibunz and wonderfulls insert to slowly make the step to washables. Reassure me it I will love them please?

Hazellnut Thu 23-Jun-05 13:40:02

you and me both chuffed - I am on day 2 !! Can't reassure you here yet but it seems to be going ok so far.... Goodluck !!

chipmonkey Fri 24-Jun-05 17:33:33

You will, just stroke the inside of the fuzzibunz when you get it, that will convince you!

starlover Fri 24-Jun-05 17:34:34

hehehe chipmonkey... that's SO true

fwiw, i don't get on with the wonder-full inserts! use a mother of eden microterry insert (much cheaper too!)

i made the leap into washables at night last night and so chuffed!

she has been wearing kushies during the day not a problem, but nights were a nightmare.

Thanks to misdee im trying out a tots bots and last night was the first leak free night in a washable!!!

misdee Fri 24-Jun-05 17:36:43

you will love them!!

need to convert from disposables (tut tut) any tips please
sorry for thread hijack

jessicasmummy Fri 24-Jun-05 17:38:35

buy tots bots and motherease wraps and fleece liners, have washing machine at the ready and go for it!

lunachic Fri 24-Jun-05 17:52:20

i used too think i did so much washing i couldnt do it and now i realise it prob wont make much difference to my washing mountain !
how much would it be to set up for a 14 month old and is it worth it at this late stage ?

misdee Fri 24-Jun-05 17:54:26

definatly worth it. cost me about £100 to start up with 8/10 nappies, roll of liners and 4 wraps IIRC. as dd2 was l;ate into cloth, we only needed a small amount to start with, tho did have to wash them more often.

lunachic Fri 24-Jun-05 18:01:30

thought it might be about 80 im skint ill have to wait few weeks and think about it then -dont really fancy buying them secondhand !

misdee Fri 24-Jun-05 18:02:30

nothing wrong with second hand. tots can be washed a pretty high temps. i'd buy new wraps tho.

lunachic Fri 24-Jun-05 18:03:31

do the machine washable ones need soaking and will her clothes fit ok?
ive just thought it will be cheaper in long run than buying moltex which ive just gone on to from huggies

lunachic Fri 24-Jun-05 18:04:36

what are wraps please the inner bit or the outer bit ?

lunachic Fri 24-Jun-05 18:10:21

the outer bit i guess

misdee Fri 24-Jun-05 18:11:40

no need to soak. just sluice off the poo down the loo if using fleece liners, if using flushable then just flush the mess away, pop in bucket. put dirty nappies in machine and wash.

misdee Fri 24-Jun-05 18:11:55

yes the outer bit

lunachic Fri 24-Jun-05 18:14:19

dont fleece liners get hot in this tropical heat

misdee Fri 24-Jun-05 20:44:11

fleece keeps the baby bum dry,

chipmonkey Fri 24-Jun-05 21:35:38

Luna, the fleece is actually quite thin, so doesn't heat up.

starlover Fri 24-Jun-05 21:39:45

fuzzi bunz are lined with fleece. and DS is cooler in them than in disposables

BevB Fri 24-Jun-05 21:41:38

popolini do a nappy similar to tots bots size 2 (bravo) and the wraps are similar to the motherease wraps at only £4 each 5% off this week too

loobywoof Sun 26-Jun-05 21:37:41

Snap. I've also just ordered a couple of fuzzibunz.( Have used cloth before but not on DD and not Fuzzis) Hope we've done the right thing. Have you got yours yet?

chipmonkey Mon 27-Jun-05 10:27:26

I have a couple of popolini wraps and I find them very reliable.

Chuffed Mon 27-Jun-05 12:23:41

no haven't got them but just won £25 worth in the mumsnet comp last week so might get some slinky minki's as well. I want something slim fitting.
