Please tell me about re-usable nappies
I know i have ages before I need to worry about such things but H and I are trying to spread the cost of baby related items before I stop working.
I am really keen to use re-usable nappies but I don't really know where to start. I have had a quick google but there are so many options and a lot of the sites seem aimed at people already using them not people like me who have never changed a nappy re-usable or disposable!
So where do I start are there boy and girl versions I will not find out what I'm having? How many will I need? I guess thats hard to answer but how many would be a good start so they don't end up nappy-less in the first few days. Did you mix disposable and re-usable? H is worried that re-usable will casue nappy rash did anyone find that to be a problem? We don't have a tumble drier although may do before the baby is here but I would like to be prepared in case we haven't got one.
Is there anything else I will need? I have heard talk of nappy buckets but I'm probably being thick, are they used to pre-soak the nappies before they go in the machine?
Thanks for all your help
