Ive not used them personally but my friend does and she seems to like them and they do save a bit of money they went on a website and got quite a good package where they got so many of each size etc but she finds it hard with clothes for her daughter as they are a lot more bulkier than dispoables and it can be very hard to get trousers on as they are not always big enough to go over the nappy

I don't know what brand the wife and I used with ours but the two youngest both used reusable nappies at times as it worked out cheaper, more work though to keep enough clean.

The only problem I would say is that when they got to about nine months or so when you are hoping that they will start walking we found that they intefered in the process due to them being bigger than disposables.

i'd thought about using reusables (before i was a mum!) but never did til recently. i bought a trial pack of Motherease One Size, they are really nice to look at!, but i think they are useless. They are so bulky his sleepsuits didn't fit over!, they get soooooo wet & make his skin wet too. the overpants leave marks on the skin As the elastic is tight, & he got nappy rash! I've given up & gone back to Pampers (which are brilliant).XX

I thought it was quite interesting that the government spent £80milion on the reusable nappies campain, based on the environmental benefit, only to now cancel the scheme, as in actual fact the energy for production and cleaning/drying of the reusables has an equal impact on the environment as the disposables going into the ladfills does Suspect

I was thinking of trying reusables with my next one beacuse of the environmental benefits, but if there arent any im sticking do my chuck aways!!

i always thought that the impact of washing & drying reusables on the enviroment would be just as damaging too. If the disposable were more "biodegradable" then perhaps everyone (including the planet) would be happy.XX
