I always knew that I would be using cloth nappies or at least give them a try - as don't you think they look delicious!! I really liked the idea of soft natural fabric against my babies skin instead of scratchy paper. But I do admit I wasn't particularly looking forward to washing the little buggers... ;)
It doesn't have to be daunting though and the best advice I got given was 'just start with one cloth nappy a day!' Well that was an eye opener - it doesn't have to be all or nothing!
With that in mind I bought 12 Totsbots Easyfits and I started introducing them when our little girl was around 12 weeks. And yes, one cloth nappy at a time.
Soon I found that I really loved using them and within a few weeks I fully switched over. They were so easy to use (just like a normal nappy!) and I really liked the fact that I was saving nappies from ending up in landfill.
I am a really big fan of Totsbots Easyfit nappies and here is why:
The latest Easyfit has an all-new unique layered fabric, Binky. It features an awesomely absorbent Bamboo & Cotton blend on the upper side which is nice and natural next to Bubba’s skin. The supersoft, fast-drying Minky is tucked away on the lower side, and does a very good job of storing away all the wetness.
The Easyfit is a very trim fitting cloth nappy that is very easy to use, especially when you are out and about. They are the ultimate in convenience and dry quickly.
Ones size fits all so no need to buy different sizes (they adjust with poppers).
And as for washing the nappies? I started using a one way liner. It protects your babies bottom by keeping it dry and it will protect your nappy from staining especially from the dreaded bright yellow breastfed poo! It also makes getting rid of poo easier, not to be underestimated ;).
I used to rinse my nappies, spin them in the washing machine and then wash them all together at the end of the day. Once you get the hang of it, it's very easy. And if you keep in mind that you don't have to use them all the time, every day, it really takes the pressure off!
All in all I cannot recommend the Easyfits highly enough and I really enjoyed using them. Because it's cloth nappy week this week you can now snap them up for only a fraction of the normal price!
