So my British Grandmother called me recently to ask if it was true that I was going to use "proper diapers and not the throw away kind". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
She also wanted to know if I needed to order my diapers from Mothercare in the UK. Apparently my mother needed to and did back in 1980. My mother died when I was eleven, so I want to know, are they better? Were they maybe all she could get in the days before the internet? Any guesses?<br><br>
I might do the same for baby due in August if anyone thinks it's worth it.<br><br>

Mothercare is a chain specialising in pregnancy and baby products. The terry diapers are squares of terry fabric, like a towel, which you fold like a flat diaper. They are quite bulky though very absorbant. I haven't seen anything like them in the states.

Well, I can't really answer your question, as my baby isn't due until August. But a British friend of mine ordered me 2 dozen terry nappies from Mothercare, and a "Nappy starter kit". I can't wait to use them! They washed up <span style="text-decoration:underline;">so</span> very soft! I've been experimenting with different folds too. I think that they would be great to use for other things also, like burp cloths, breastfeeding coverups, changing pads, etc. I'm actually thinking about getting some more, but shiping to the states is quite expensive! HTH
