Tuesday, 5 November 2019 | AdminCONGRATULATIONS!! You are expecting your bonnie bundle of joy. Whether you are thinking about having a baby or are pregnant and waiting, it’s best to be prepared if want to use cloth from birth. When I was pregnant, I wanted to know everything, I mean EVERYTHING before I met my little precious one - so make a cup of tea and get stuck in, here is everything you need to know about cloth nappying your new baby. At the end there will be a list of things you might need for your set up.
Think about setting a budget:
Everybody’s circumstances are different but that doesn’t mean they are better or worse than yours. There are no rules stated anywhere in the handbook of cloth nappies (gosh I wish there was one of those when I started out) to say that you absolutely have to have all the nappies you need straight away. Take your time to figure out your finances and budget how much you want to spend or can spend on your investment. I say investment because that is what it is. You are investing in nappies for your current baby plus any subsequent babies you may have in the future. As much as I wish it weren’t true, newborns don’t stay newborns for very long so there is no need to go mad buying a hundred newborn nappies when they will outgrow them within a few weeks. It’s a good idea to have a mix of newborn and birth to potty nappies in your stash.
