Not that I'm a tree hugging ecowarrior or anything, but one of my friends recently had a baby and they are pumping something like 40 nappies a week into their bin - and thereafter onto our burgeoning landfill sites. I find this a bit crazy, and as we recycle a great deal, and have done so for years, it would go against the grain to just bin all this waste.
We've decided to have a go with reusable nappies, and have bought some Tots Bots nappies from eBay - 12 for £50 brand new - a good deal. My wife is due in February, but I like to be prepared!
I've read all the pros and cons and poorly investigated research comparing the use of disposables and reusables, and I remain convinced that resuables are the way forward on all fronts - with the possible exception of convenience.
The manufacturer recommends washing these at 60 - I reckon it would be ok to wash at 40, given the improvements to washing detergents etc, but I will confirm this with them.
So, to cut to the chase, does anyone have any experiences, good and bad, of using these? Any advice and info would be appreciated.
