When I was pregnant with my second I decided to use cloth nappies. I purchased my stash and joined a bunch of Facebook groups. Now Facebook groups are great for advice and troubleshooting – but that’s all you see, people with problems asking for help. What you don’t see is the hundreds of people using cloth successfully day in, day out. But I didn’t realise that, I just saw washing problem after washing problem and wondered if I would ever get it right.
In reality it’s been fine. I have my wash routine sorted. It’s simple and it works for me.
