Terry nappies-am i mad?
27

emblosion · 30/01/2012 00:48

Hi ladies,
Just hoping for some advice. I'm expecting my first baby in June and planning to use reusable nappies.

Like others, I've been feeling overwhelmed by the amount of choice out there but after a lot of thought am seriously considering just using old fashioned terry nappies. My mum and sister have made no secret of the fact that they think I am utterly bonkers for even considering this. Mum keeps predicting that they will leak everywhere and cause awful nappy rash (in a voice of doom)...

Cost and drying fast is an issue for us and I didn't want to buy lots of sizes, so terries seemed to tick all the boxes.

I guess I just wanted some advice/ reassurance from someone that has used terries . Will they be ok to use from newborn? Will baby's bum be humongous? Will leaking be a massive issue? Am I just making loads of extra work for myself?

Ooo and which wraps would you recommend to go with them?

Thanks all, sorry that's so long, I really appreciate any advice you can give me!

I am another terry lover, my DH was not convinced but now thinks they are great. SOme of my terries are in fact from when DH was a baby, MIL still had them after all these years. I just double up at night now DS is bigger, works really well.
