Whats Been Going On!

Having debated with myself for months about whether to change to real nappies I have begun investigating in more detail. And what a minefield it is! For the new baby, which is due in a couple of weeks, there seem to be an infinite number of types and brands of nappy. Then there are the waterproof ‘wraps’, different shapes like pre-folded, triangle, and the liners, ‘nappy nippers’ to hold them together or you can opt for Velcro or poppers, ….this is all getting a... + read more
