I considered it before birth but i'm actually glad we didn't. This is our first baby, I had a cesarean and am EPing so it would of just been too much work but now i'm thinking about it. There are just so many types though, could someone explain the general proces to a noob like me? These are my concerns/prioritys...
1 DD has never had a diaper rash and I absolutly don't want her to get one or feel uncomfortable.
2 it has to be as convenient as possible and look/be as much like sposies, def with those throw away liners. As this is our first I have no idea how her poop will change and don't like the idea of dipping them in the toilet.
3 cost, sposies are not cheap but good CDs don't seem to be either, how quickly will she grow out of them? She is now 11.9lbs and there will be no second babe to use them.
4 environmentally what a waste it all is! We have to pay for special trash bags and are limited to how much we can throw out so to reduce rubbish would be great.
How do you wash them? Do you have to wet store before washing or can they be dry in one of those diaper pails with a plastic bag inside? Can they go in the dryer?
Also I would have to mail order them to where we live in Belgium so that prob won't be cheap, i've never known anyone who has done this and where we live they will prob think i'm mad if I do do it
